If you find yourself somewhere you shouldn’t be smoking and going outside isn’t a practical option, the shower is one of the best places to sneak a toke.
The steam and the use of the ceiling fan offer a one-two punch to knock out the smell, and as a bonus, you’ll likely get a little extra buzz out of it. The heat and steam improve your circulation, allowing THC, and CBD to a lesser degree, to hit your bloodstream faster and harder.
Even better, if there are other people about that you don’t want to know you’re smoking, your prolonged absence in the bathroom comes with a cover story—you were just taking a shower.
While there are other ways to hide the smell of weed, we consider the shower method the most reliable and easiest to pull off. So, without further ado, here’s a complete guide to smoking ganja in the shower.
think personal hot box sauna.
By the time you finish your shower, the smoke and smell of marijuana will have dissipated, and you’re good to go.
If you want to take it a step further, go ahead and spray a bit of air freshener, but no more than you would for a standard odorous bathroom trip if you’re trying not to arouse suspicion. Alternatively, you can burn aweed-masking candle while you smoke and turn the whole ordeal into a spa experience.
While the above steps are often plenty, if you’re trying to be extra careful to hide the smell of your marijuana, there are some other steps you can take. It might be worth it if the consequences would be dire if you are caught—like losing your rental or getting kicked out of a program of some sort.
A sploof is a funnel that controls and contains the smoke, acting almost like a cheap air filter. Here’s the most common DIY sploof method:
Most people have these supplies on hand, and when you're finished, you can disassemble it easily. If storing weed paraphernalia isn’t an issue for you, you can also buy a reusable sploof—though most aren't labeled as such. The most popular option is theSmoke Buddy Personal Air Filter.
As the bathroom is often an area where a little extra scent reduction is appreciated, small outlet-plug air purifiers are a thing—and we’re not talking just one of those stinky Glade boxes. We mean an actual air purifier with a HEPA filter, UV light, charcoal—or even all three.
Some models can be a bit expensive, but if you'll be smoking in the shower regularly, they can give your bathroom fan a helping hand in ensuring the odors don't escape your private space.
Finally, the best way to eliminate the smell of marijuana smoke is to get rid of the smoke! Vaping is a relatively new option in the cannabis world, but it shows a lot of promise for discreet smoking.
There will still be some smell. It just won't be nearly as strong as it would be if you were smoking. Coupled with the other techniques mentioned here, you can be 100% sure no one will smell what you're vaping.
Make sure that the vape you choose isdesigned for herb if you plan to vape flower. You can also get THC vape-juice or use aconcentrate pen and vape wax, oil, or honey. Again, all the above use different vapes and techniques—do your research.
If you attempt to vape something like flower with the wrong rig, or don’t know what you’re doing, you could damage your device, waste your weed, or even hurt yourself.
