The WW seedlings that i'm doing right now take about a month and a half till two months before they show sex, and at that point they start to smell.

Different strains will stink more than others. In my opinion white widow is one of the stinkier strains.

Yea whenever THC is created, trichrome heads are responsible for the "dank" odor--so when it starts to show sex and when you move into flowering is when the odors get pungent. However, depending on your ventilation, air circulation, and odor control... You may have major or minor smell problems.

it will smell like weed once you plant it. just caress a couple leaves with your hand and you will notice the smell on your hands after. before flowering though it shouldn't be too bad, but once it starts to flower it really stanks.

Yup, anywhere from a couple weeks to a couple months, depends on strain and setup.

Usually in the second week of flowering does it really get that stinky weed aroma, and by week 4 it will leak into the surrounding rooms unless you have a good vent system. That's probably how my neighbor found my shit, now that I think about it. That and the massive amount of soil he saw me with.:D Remember, the perfect grow room has no inside/outside vents, just chillers, but it is airtight from surrounding rooms in the house. Those vents will leak the cheeba smell wherever they're pointed.

Terpenes are responsible for the cannabis smell, THC by itself is odorless.

Definitely depends on strain. My cousin had an outdoor plant that was skunky as hell 1 month after planting it, meanwhile, I had 4 plants indoor in late flower and it wasn't even close. Of course I have some ventilation but no carbon filter. I was also growing some fruity strains: pineapple chunk, vanilla kush.
