If you’re reading this, you probably agree with us that weed is great. Legal issues aside, though, there is one area in which its decidedly not great: it’s pungent odor. Even if you work, as we do, for a cannabis-friendly organization, no one wants their clothes or bags or apartment to reek of the sticky icky when you have something professional to do or a serious social obligation. But what are the best ways to remove the scent without abstaining altogether? Read on and find out.
WikiHow suggests investing in air fresheners. Plugging or spraying one immediately before or after smoking can disguise the smell. A downside, however, is your apartment or home then smells like air fresheners, which all smell gross (in our opinion).
This one is more preventative than anything but it’s effective. A throwback to our teen years, a sploof is a toilet paper or paper towel roll covered with a paper towel and dryer sheet attached on the outside of one end (held down with a rubber band). When you exhale the smoke, do it into the roll and through the scented filter, creating a pleasant, just-out-of-the-dryer smell.
After a serious smoke session—or after keeping weed in you favorite bag for a prolonged period—just douse everything in Febreze. True it’ll be suspicious that your smell so strongly of Febreze but that’s better than the alternative.
Open A Window
Don’t sleep on the simplest solution of all: Just open a damn window and give it some time. Of course, this technique doesn’t work if the weather is miserable or if you have limited time. But it’s something to consider.
Class up your operation with a nice scented candle to mask any other odors in your place. Make it a strong one, like something that smells like this apparently very powerful Volcano scent.
