While cannabis smells good to marijuana smokers, those who don't partake might turn a nose up to its scent.
Whether you're stashing weed in your house or baked out your car, the smell of marijuana lingers. It can blow up your spot for days!
Here are some ways to hide the scent of marijuana no matter where you are!
Fresh air is a smoker's best friend.
Keeping a window open will replenish the room with clean air. That is unless you live near a dump or a swamp…
Stagnant smoke chemicals will just waft in the air. Air circulation will break up these clouds of smoke.
Opening a window in the dead of winter isn't ideal, even for the most dedicated smoker. You can still smoke and breathe fresh air with an air purifier.
Get an air purifier with a HEPA and a carbon filter.
HEPA filters help clean the air of bacteria, mold, and other pathogens that might cause the air to smell.
Carbon filters will capture heavy metals in the air that might be hazardous to your health.
Both of these filters will help filter the air of smoke chemicals. Air purifiers will draw in the smoky air and pump out marijuana-free air.
Create an ambiance for your next smoke session by lighting a candle. Plain white candles neutralize the air, even removing toxic chemicals from it!
Go big or go home! You can make an entire experience by experimenting with different scents.
Just be careful not to go overboard with the aromas. Sometimes candle scents are so strong, it becomes obvious that you're trying to mask weed.
Stick for more neutral scents, like pine, flowers, or clean linen.
Take the air purification up to the next level by diffusing essential oils.
Essential oils contain aromatic chemicals known as terpenes. Terpenes are also present in marijuana. They're the reason for the smell you're trying to mask!
Some of the best essential oils to neutralize marijuana scents include:
We also recommend adding in some patchouli or frankincense oil. They smell so close to weed, you might be able to get away with it!
Are you the clean-up-as-you-go kinda person? Then invest in a Smokebuddy.
A Smokebuddy, or Sploof, minimizes the amount of smoke released in a closed space by capturing it!
Hold up your blunt to this apparatus in between puffs to prevent rings of smoke overhead.
Inhale from your joint in front of the Sploof, and then exhale directly into it. Sploof! It’s gone.
There will be far less to deodorize with this handy contraption!
Sometimes you don't need a whole bowl. However, once it gets lit, you've gotta clear that bad boy.
This leaves you prone to excess smoke in the air.
Using a one-hitter limits the need to light more weed than you intend to use. It causes a shorter smoke session, which limits the amount of smoke you release into the atmosphere.
Bowls and blunts will also produce larger smoke rings that are harder to tame. The shape of the one-hitter captures most of the smoke.
It directs the smoke exactly where you want it to go...right into your mouth!
Vaping is an easy way to get very high, very discreetly.
The scent of vapes lasts minutes, if at all.
If you really want flower, there are also vaporizers that work with marijuana buds. They’re called herbal vaporizers and are usually a bonus feature on premium dab pens.
Herbal vaporizers will create a more pungent scent than oils.
However, the smell should still be more manageable with a vaporizer than ripping a bong.
The scent of weed sticks around in more than just the air. Your skin is highly porous. It can also soak up marijuana smoke chemicals.
Wash away the scent of marijuana by taking a hot shower. Use a light exfoliant to scrub away dead skin cells and odorous smoke molecules.
Also, be sure to wash your hair. It's essentially a sponge for smoke.
Allow the shampoo and conditioner to sit in your hair for a few minutes before rinsing it out.
Hot showers aren't just great for hiding smells. You can also blame them on your red eyes!
A clean mouth isn't just good hygiene. It's essential for not blowing your cover.
As we've learned through this pandemic, our breath travels great distances. So, while you might think your breath doesn't smell like pot, a non-smoker would disagree.
Brush your teeth and scrape your tongue after smoking. Also, stay hydrated.
Drinking water produces more saliva, which will help wash the lingering flavor of weed on your taste buds.
Storing your weed will not only keep it fresh, but it can keep your cover, too.
We highly recommended storing your marijuana in an airtight glass jar. Unlike plastic containers, glass isn't porous. It won't build up moisture that can cause mold growth on your flowers.
Also, glass is impermeable. So, the odors within the container won't leak out.
Whereas, plastic will degrade with time. The lining of the container will start to give, and marijuana odors are free to roam.
