1 - MAKE A SPLOOF
Sploofs are handheld devices that use a filter to minimize the smell of marijuana. Simply blow your smoke through the open end of the sploof and let the filter work its magic. If you can’t pick up a commercial sploof like a SmokeBuddy, you can easily make one yourself.
All you need is a cardboard cylinder from a paper towel or toilet paper roll, a dryer sheet, and a rubber band. Fold the dryer sheet a few times (this will be your filter) then place it over one end of the cardboard cylinder. Use the rubber band to secure the dryer sheet, then viola! Your DIY sploof is ready to go.
2- SMOKE IN THE BATHROOM/SHOWER
Turn your shower on and make it as hot as possible. The steam from the hot water will mix with the smoke and help dissipate the smell. Make sure you fan is on as well so the steam/smoke mix will get sucked up and out of the bathroom. Stuffing a damp towel into the crack at the bottom of your bathroom door will help keep the smoke from creeping out as well. When you are done, you can take a quick shower too to help remove any lingering smell from your body!
3 - USE NATURAL INCENSE, SCENTED CANDLES, OR ESSENTIAL OILS
Not only will some natural scents help hide the smell of weed, it will make you place smell a lot better! We suggest either burning some natural incense like Palo Santo or Sandalwood or using essential oils in an air diffuser with scents like lavender or eucalyptus. Getting into the habit of burning some nice scented candles throughout the day will help keep the smell of weed from building up in your place too. Just make sure to avoid any artificial deodorizers as they tend to just mix with the marijuana smell instead of covering it.
4 - TRY VAPING
A vaporizer heats up the cannabis flower or concentrate to just the right temperature to extract the cannabinoids and terpenes without actually burning it. Not only does this prevent the releases of harmful tar and carcinogens that come from traditional burning methods, the resulting vapor has a much less potent aroma.
5 - MAKE SURE THERE’S PROPER VENTILATION
Having enough ventilation so the smoke has somewhere to go will dramatically prevent it from lingering on you, the furniture, and walls. Open a window and point a fan at it so there is some air flow. Just make sure if you live in an apartment that you aren’t blowing the smoke into your neighbors.
6 - PACK A SMALL BOWL
Bowls produce noticeably less smoke compared to joints and bongs. Plus, the smoke they do produce mostly just comes from the actual bowl, not the mouthpiece. Packing a lighter bowl (just enough for one hit) will help limit the amount of burning and subsequent smoke. It’s not a perfect solution, but it’s a small detail that will help you be more discreet.
