How to Smoke Weed Without The Smell
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. While some of these tips many sound simple, you'd be surprised at how effective they are, especially when combined.
How to Smoke Without Smelling
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 my experience, concentrate pens produce significantly less smell than loose-leaf vaporizer pens.
Use a Filter
Whether you use a HEPA filter or purchase a carbon filter, deploying this simple technique will greatly reduce the presence of contaminants (smell) in the air. For reference, grow rooms also rely on carbon filters to scrub the air of any noticeable cannabis scent.
Mask the Smell
To mask the smell, many people construct what is known as a 'sploof' – a simple device through which the smoke is blown in an effort to mask its smell with other smells. Typically, this is done by taking the cardboard tube from a roll of toilet-paper or paper towels and shoving a bunch of drier sheets inside. That way when you blow the smoke through the tube, it smells like Tide...sort of.
When given the opportunity, smoking outside is going to reduce smells to a large degree, because even a light breeze will carry all the smoke away. If you can't step outside or the weather is inclement, we recommend simply cracking a window and directing your exhale right out. Ashing the bowl or joint through the window is another effective method for smell reduction. If you are going to smoke inside with the window cracked, remember to put a towel under the door so the draft doesn't send the smoke back inside.
Wash Your Hands
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.
Carry a Smell Proof Case
A carbon lined smell proof case will be your best bet when trying to conceal your smoking supplies after use. As soon as you're ready to store your 420 travel kit essentials, pack them in a case like The Safety Case for maximum discretion on the go.
