How To Get Rid of Weed Smell Guide: What does weed smell like?

Getting high is awesome but sometimes the lingering smell afterwards isn’t – Especially for any non-smokers you may have in the house. In general, Cannabis is known to have an earthy smell in its dried form, and somewhat of a skunky smell as the plant matures and dries up. This smell can be magnified during smoking as well. Although this effect isn’t near as bad while using a dry herb vaporizing than vs. smoking, there will still be a lingering smell in the air, especially if you are in a closed indoor space. Different strains will be more potent during storage and consumption so will require different methods to control their smell. In this how to get rid of weed smell guide, we’ll be going over our top tips and tricks to keep your cannabis odor to a minimum.

How to get rid of the marijuana smell?

Most cannabis odors can be removed by modern products that work to neutralize cannabis enyzmes in the air instead of masking the odor like traditional sprays do. This means that as your candle burns, or as your odor-absorbing spray begins to work in the air, it will overrule the cannabis scent and freshen up the room. If you want to hide your weed smell in the first place, then you’ll need an odor-absorbing carrying container to block the smell from others that you’re close to.  If the scent is already in the air, then you can start by opening windows and using a natural spray to freshen up the room. You won’t want to use traditional air fresheners as they will only blend with the scent of your cannabis and make the room smell like a weed perfume. This is where the natural elements of a good spray come in handy. Incense and essential oils are much lighter in the air and will diffuse the weed scent better.

How long does weed smell last?

As a rule of thumb, cannabis smell from an open container or from smoke or vapor will last about thirty minutes in a well-ventilated room, and about three hours if there is no airflow. If you’re in an apartment or room without access to fresh air, traditional air fresheners are probably not your friend as most of the time they will mix with the cannabis scent and make it even the marijuana use more obvious.

With candles like the Smoke Killer Collection that work by using essential oils and soy wax and enzyme additives, you’ll be effectively removing the scent completely from the air while also adding a nice and light pleasant smell.

If your problem is more about the smell of cannabis getting into absorbent fabrics like curtains or leather, then an odor-removing spray might be a better choice than a candle.

With something like the all-natural Cannabolish odor spray, you’ll be able to freshen up anything that you want without the fear of harmful chemicals staining fabrics.

Weed odor-absorbent Containers

It is always a good idea to keep your cannabis in an airtight container that will not only will keep your dry herb fresher for longer, but also keep your storage smell to a minimum. If you’re a beginner, a used mason jar will work just fine as a resealable container but if you’re an adult with younger kids around, you may want to think of something that combines odor-reducing capabilities with a lock like the Tools420 Weed Container or a SmokeBuddy Odor Remover. These will work by using activated carbon to filter out any odor in their air to ensure a fresh odor around the containers.

Cannabis Vaporizers Reduce Weed Smell

By using cannabis vaporizers, you are only boiling off the essential oils off of your cannabis. As we talked about in our 3rd generation cannabis vaporizers blog, cannabis smoke was found to have 111 compounds, whereas cannabis vapor only had three. Especially when you are using a vaporizer like the Pax 3, you’ll find that the smell is more like toast than anything, unlike the skunk odor found in cannabis smoke from joints or pipes. Vapes will also be a great choice if you’re limited to smoking inside as it will be much more discreet to anyone else that you have in the house. Portable vaporizers will also allow you to get your sessions basically anywhere while simultaneously being much more discreet than a joint due to the popularity of similar-looking nicotine vapes.
