Weed is pretty stinky, but there are simple ways of disguising its smell and effect. Here’s how.
Smoking marijuana is one of the most difficult activities to hide, not only because of the goofiness and the red eyes that most likely ensue, but also because of the smell. One joint can permeate an entire bedroom, bathroom, car, or apartment, especially if the weed is particularly strong and there’s a lot of residual produced.
Instead of locking yourself up and trying to keep the smell of weed locked in, there are ways of hiding your high and avoiding the distinct smell of weed after smoking. In fact, hotboxing, whether you do it in your bedroom or car, is almost impossible to hide, because the smoke permeates to your clothes.
Experience and a calm disposition is usually what makes your act seem more passable, and there are several tricks that can help you disguise your high. First, you must tend to your eyes, which are usually dead giveaways. Carry eye drops of whatever brand works for you, in your car and house, applying them after smoking. This can help you feel more comfortable and in control. When it comes to disguising marijuana smell, gum or mints always work. You can also use mouthwash if you want to be even more thorough.
If you still feel like you smell of weed, try washing your face and neck, which will clear some of the haze and get rid of any smell that got attached to you. If you’re not near a sink, keep some baby wipes around.
Depending on how you smoke, you should also account for your hands and how they smell. Rolling and smoking joints will leave your hands smelly, so carry hand sanitizer or lotion, which can disguise everything. If you’re vaping, you won’t have to worry about that, just ensure to aim the smoke away from your clothes, preferably vaping in an open space.
As a finishing touch, a dash of perfume or cologne will ensure that there are no remains of weed smell. If you’re trying to get rid of weed smell in your bedroom or car, Febreze and open windows are the way to go. If the two smells mix up, at least whoever comes in the space or walks by you will be confused and will have some trouble localizing the source of the smell.
