How to Smoke Cannabis Without Smelling

Everyone has been in the unfortunate situation of catching a whiff of cannabis on their clothes, hair, home or car. Not an ideal scenario when trying to consume undetected. In order to maintain maximum discretion, it’s important to deploy a few smart tips to smoke weed without smelling like it. Keep in mind that smell is subjective – what does not smell to you may actually be quite noticeable to a neighbor. Whatever reason you may have to hide the smell of weed, these few tips will help you do it like a pro.

Practice cleanliness

Cannabis smoke lingers far less than cigarette smoke does. So unless you’re hotboxing your room at this very moment, there’s no real reason for your pad to smell like a grow op. If it does, there are probably a couple (easily fix-able) reasons for that.
The first is that you probably have ashtrays sitting out with a few roaches sitting in a bed of ash and stems.
The second is that you may have bongs or other water pipes that have dirty water that have been sitting out in your house for a little too long. The, somewhat obvious, fix is to clean up after yourself. All there is to it is cleaning off that ashtray, or simply emptying the bong water when you’re done using it.

Whatever you do, don’t let that bong water spill anywhere! Now that is a hard smell to deal with.

Often times your hands will pick up an ashtray-like scent after smoking which is a dead giveaway. As soon as you finish smoking or vaping, a quick hand wash will remove many of the contaminants that may have ended up on your fingers during the grinding, loading, rolling, lighting, and clearing process.

Use Vaporizer

The easiest method for discreet smoking is a portable vaporizer. You can fill them with flower or concentrates, easily carry them during air travel, and avoid thick clouds of smoke or obvious scents at home and on the go. Some portable vaporizers are even styled as ink pens so that they blend into to everyday life. In our experience, concentrate pens produce significantly less smell than loose-leaf vaporizer pens.

Use a sploof

If you’ve ever lived in a college dorm, chances are, you may remember fashioning your own sploof out of toilet paper rolls and dryer pads in order to smoke weed without the smell.

Essentially, a sploof is something you can use to filter your smoke into that’ll leave your smoke smelling like fresh laundry cleaner.

There is even an actual brand of sploof, appropriately called the Sploofy, that was designed to do everything our janky college sploofs could do, but better.

This product allows you to smoke as usual but with instant filtration, minimal odor, and can last months before needing a re-fill of its inner cartridge.

Use Gum/Mints/Mouthwash

how to not smell like weed after smoking: chewing gumLet’s be honest, if you smoked then your breath stinks. I don’t care what flavors you tasted on the inhale, I promise the exhale was not as pleasant. There are very few things in this world that are worse than having a conversation with a bad-breath individual. One of those things is being that individual with bad breath. Even the coolest human can’t pull off stinky tonsils, and that’s why you should have some kind of breath-freshening device on hand.

Use A Pipe Instead Of Paper

If you’re smoking a joint that means you’re actually going to be stuck with the smell of burning paper on top of the cannabis aromas. In this case you can use a pipe instead. Pipes are made of a material that is not combustible, so you won’t have to worry about dealing with another smell.

Smoke Outdoors

This is the best way to smoke weed with your friends without worrying about any inhibitions on the smell. There is an abundant flow of fresh air out there. Ensure that you are doing everything right so you do not get into trouble with the law and other locals. Weed tends to give you the ‘happy feeling’ effect, which is great if you are in a party. You may get loud and rowdy and this might not be very welcome.

There are many reasons to hide the smell of weed. No matter what yours is, try these tips to make the effort more successful. What do you do to hide the smell of marijuana?
