How to Get Rid of Weed Smell

Whether you're a regular smoker or someone that just enjoys the occasional sesh, no one wants to deal with the lingering smell of weed. We've all been in situations where the smell becomes too dank and it's a struggle to get rid of.

To help keep your seshes discreet, here are some ways that you can remove or even prevent that pesky weed odor from lingering in your room.

First, let's look at what causes such a strong odor.

What Causes the Cannabis Smell

That notably skunky smell of cannabis is a result of several components: terpenes, aromatic compounds, and the smell of burnt plant matter. When you combine these unique elements, you get compounds that can easily permeate fabrics, furniture, and many hard surfaces. This is why weed smell can be so hard to get out of clothes or furniture.

Tips for Getting Rid of Weed Smell

Create Ventilation

When you’re lighting up, it’s important to crack a window or turn on a fan to create ventilation in your room. This helps to ensure that the smoke is being moved around and doesn’t stay trapped in the room which would result in a lingering odor.

Use Air Purifiers and Odor Sprays

Both air purifiers and odor sprays can be very effective tools for managing weed odors. Air purifiers work by pushing air into filters and then recirculating it back into your room. Meanwhile, odor sprays can be used to mask or neutralize smells.

If typical scented sprays aren’t cutting it for you, try a weed-specific spray such as Hemper’s odor eliminator spray, which is designed to neutralize even the dankest of odors.

Keep Your Cannabis Stashed Properly

Whether in its natural state or ground, keeping your cannabis flower stashed away in a secure, airtight container can keep the odor from permeating through the room. Using a storage option like the Keeper can keep all of your herb stashed away while also keeping your room stank-free for when you’re not lighting up for a sesh.

Try a Natural Remedy

You can always turn to natural remedies such as leaving a bowl of vinegar or baking soda out overnight in the room where you smoked. These are good for when you're in a pinch and don't have a cannabis-specific odor eliminator handy.

Use Scented Candles

If you want to eliminate weed odors while setting the mood, try lighting a scented candle. After a few minutes, you’ll notice the scent of the candle will begin to overpower the stench of weed in the room.

Use a Personal Smoke Filter

For a solution that tackles the problem head on, consider buying a personal smoke filter. These devices filter the smoke that you blow into them and push out clean, filtered air.

For a high-quality and reliable smoke filter, look no further than Hemper's SmokeFiends personal air filters. These eco-friendly filters are perfect for removing smoke and odor, making for a clean room and happy neighbors/roommates.

Clean Your Pieces Regularly

Dirty glass pieces like bongs and pipes can create a stronger odor that's more noticeable than clean glass. Make sure to clean your pieces regularly to both reduce smells and keep your lungs healthier.

Tips for Preventing Weed Smells

Don't Smoke in the Same Place Each Time

As one could probably guess, the more you smoke in the same location, the worse the odor in that room will be. Try to smoke in various locations so that the smell isn’t building up all in one place.

Smoke Outside Whenever You Can

While this may not be a viable solution in certain months, smoking outside whenever possible is great for keeping the smell out of your house. This way, the smoke dissipates into the outdoor air without sticking to any furniture or indoor materials.

Use Edibles or Vapes Inside

The best way to reduce smoke odor is by not smoking at all (duh). Luckily, there are still a number of ways to enjoy weed without smoking, such as edibles and vapes. Keep in mind, while vaping produces less odor than smoking, you should still expect some smell.

Spray Odor Eliminators When Not Smoking

Even when you’re not smoking, occasionally spraying odor eliminators in rooms you smoke in can help keep the air clean and odor-free. Just make sure not to overdo it, as some of these sprays can be harmful if ingested in large amounts.

Keep Your Seshes Discreet and Get Rid of Odor
