How to hide the smell of weeds
The smell of Weeds and cannabis Plants can be very stubborn, noticeable, and difficult to remove, especially in clothing, hair, and even furniture. Although most marijuana users say they don’t mind the smell, many still want to know how to get rid of the weed smell.
This could be to grapple with fussy roommates, parents, or neighbors, any of whom can have issues with the marijuana smell. Also, the reason for trying to hide the weed smell could be because marijuana is still illegal in the place where that person lives, or because they don’t want to attract unwanted attention.
But how can you hide the weed smell that is so evident?
Here are some tips and tricks on how to not only prevent but also eliminate the smell of marijuana during and after smoking, as well as additional information on how to store marijuana without giving off the smell.

Choose a good place to smoke
If you have the opportunity, smoking outdoors in the fresh air will help you dispel the smell rather than linger.
Spending a little time preparing a room as a smoking area before lighting a joint will make it easier for you to remove odors later. If you smoke inside, you can catch up with the smell faster by following the tips below.
Exhaust or ventilation devices
If you grow or smoke marijuana indoors, you should consider using an appropriate ventilation system. It’s important to maintain a constant flow of air to keep the room fresh, and it’s much easier to remove the smell of cannabis from a well-ventilated space. (Make sure you check and replace the filters in the air purifier regularly.) A good air purifier will help clear out smoke as soon as it begins to appear.
Provide adequate ventilation to allow fresh air to circulate
Having a good flow of fresh air through the room allows for good air circulation that directs the smelly smoke outside, preventing the smoke from lingering on you, furniture, walls and carpets. Open the windows / doors and direct the fan around the room to create a continuous breeze. Alternately turn on the air conditioner. This helps circulate the air. Just make sure you don’t blow smoke into your neighbor’s home.
Smoking in the bathroom
Turn on the shower and make it as hot as possible. The steam in hot water mixes with the smoke and helps draw the smoke away. Make sure you also turn on the fan so that the steam / smoke mixture is sucked out of the bathroom. Stuffing damp towels in the cracks on the bottom of the bathroom door can also prevent smoke from spreading out of the room. After you’re done, you can also take a quick shower to remove any remaining odors!

How to hide the smell of weed when smoking
First, there are several steps you can take to mask the weed smell or prevent it from spreading.
Use natural fragrances, scented candles, or essential oils.
Try to stay away from regular deodorants that are provided by the grocery store. These usually don’t mask the smell of marijuana very well, but blend with it. Potpourri or dried lavender mask the smell, scented candles as well as essential / aromatherapy oils and incense sticks. These are cheap and easy to buy. Just make sure nothing hot is kept away from flammable places, and don’t leave candles or incense sticks unattended.
Use a sploof
Sploofs, sometimes called a doob tube, are handheld devices that are an easy-to-use filter that turns the smell of weeds into the scent of freshly laundered clothes.
Commercially available ones can use a carbon filter to minimize the smell of marijuana. Directly under the smoke through the open end of the sploof and let the filter work its magic. You can do an impromptu sploof yourself.
All you need are toilet rolls (or plastic bottles), paper towels, scented clothes dryer sheets, and elastic bands.
How to create a sploof in four steps:
- Take a toilet roll (or plastic bottle and cut the top off with scissors or a knife).
- Fill the toilet paper tube with three or four layers of scented drying paper.
- Take another piece of dry paper or a paper towel and fold it over one end of the toilet roll.
- Secure with a rubber band or tape.
That’s it. You are ready to go When you smoke, exhale the smoke in your DIY rag and it smells like fresh laundry.

The Evaporator Heats or concentrates the hemp to just the right temperature to extract the cannabinoids and terpenes without actually burning them. Not only does this prevent the harmful tar and carcinogens that are released from traditional combustion methods, but the vapor produced has a much weaker flavor.
The Ice weed vaporizer is Fifth Ave Green House’s first dry herbal vape pen. It features a nano black ceramic heating element for a pure taste. The vape provides a smooth way to enjoy your pot without tearing your throat. Since your steam temperature is below the burn temperature, there is no smoke and little odor, making it a subtle way to enjoy your weed, be it at home or on the go.
Smoke with a pipe
Pipes and one-hitters are designed to be used with dry weeds, flowers, or marijuana. Glass pipes One-Hitters allows you to smoke weed in one fell swoop and not create as much smoke as you would get with bongs. While the one-hitter will only hold enough cannabis in the pipe for one hit, you can do the same with your pipe bowl by packing less in it, thereby minimizing the smoke that rises from the bowl. You can also smoke using a water pipe such as a bong. The smoke you exhale from a bong has less odor than the smoke coming from a joint or pipe due to water filtration.
Hide the smell after smoking
In addition to opening the window and turning on the fan, there are other tips and tricks to quickly get rid of the smell of marijuana.

to clean up
An excellent way to remove the smell of cannabis smoke from yourself is to wash your face and hands after smoking. It is best to take a shower and wash your hair at the same time, however, as the hair can absorb most of the weed odor. We also recommend brushing your teeth or chewing gum.
If you don’t have time to shower, use a deodorant spray and at least change your clothes. And make sure you wash clothes as soon as possible after smoking. If you can’t wash them right away, put them in a laundry basket with the lid closed, or put them in the washing machine and close the door to prevent the odor from entering your home. You should also clean up and put away ashtrays, bongs, pipes, and other smoking devices that might smell like weeds.
Take in some sunlight
The sun’s ultraviolet rays help neutralize odors. If the weather is clear and sunny, spend 30 minutes to an hour outside in direct sunlight. This will help remove some debris from your body and clothing.
If you are not going to use your weed, it is a good idea to save it. Lots of people will recognize these little zip lock bags, but a better place to store your weeds is in an airtight jar. They can be bought at most major supermarkets or dry goods stores and are the ideal way to hold your herb without the smell slowly entering the area.
Cooking a ton of flavorful foods like tikka masala, a nice korma, or Thai green curry can help cover up the smell of cannabis smoke. The rich spices like cloves, ginger, and garlic don’t get rid of the cannabis smell, but they mask it well by replacing one lingering smell with the other. So if you want to smoke a joint while preparing a delicious, yummy amount of curry, then you also have a perfect meal to fight those nibbles later.
