How to Hide the Smell of Your Favorite Strain

April 19, 2017

Even though it’s legal to smoke in the state of Colorado, you may want to keep this habit private for one reason or another. But, it can be hard to keep it under wraps if the smell lingers on you, your clothing, and around your home. How can you hide the smell? Follow these tips:

Use hand sanitizer.

Your fingers will probably smell like cannabis after you smoke—in fact, they may even turn slightly green if you’ve handled the weed—so it’s best to keep a small bottle of hand sanitizer around. But, keep in mind that hand sanitizer contains alcohol that dries your skin out. If your skin starts to dry out from using hand sanitizer excessively, try applying hand lotion after you sanitize your skin. Learn more about alcohol based versus alcohol free hand sanitizers.

Chew gum or breath mints.

Even if you’ve gotten rid of the smell in your hair and on your clothes, your breath could give away the fact that you just smoked marijuana. Keep gum or breath mints handy so you can pop them in your mouth to disguise the smell of marijuana.

Light a scented candle.

A scented candle can help you get rid of the smell of marijuana in your home. Look for a scented candle that is designed to cover up odors so it will actually mask the scent of cannabis. It’s recommended that you choose a light, clean scent instead of going for something overpowering.

Spray a perfume or cologne.

If you’re wearing the same clothes that you smoked in, spray a little bit of perfume or cologne on your body to hide the smell of marijuana. If you’re not a fan of wearing perfume or cologne, try to change clothes after you smoke so you don’t have to worry about this.

Wash your hair.

Hair absorbs smells, so if you want to shake the marijuana smell out of your hair, there’s no better way to do so than to shower and wash your hair thoroughly.

Store the leftover marijuana in an airtight container.

Do you keep marijuana in your home? If you want to prevent the smell from spreading through your home, store it in an airtight container. Many people use resealable plastic bags or mason jars, but feel free to use any kind of airtight container that you have in your home. If you don’t have any airtight containers, you can try to store your extra marijuana next to an air freshener that will keep the cannabis scent under control.

Vacuum the carpet.

Carpet can absorb smells, so you may want to clean yours after you smoke marijuana. To get the smell out, try spraying a product designed to mask odors directly onto the carpet, and then vacuum over it right away.
