If there is one thing I want you to take away from this guide, it’s this…
You can smoke anywhere and not smell if you know what you are doing and have the right tools.
Before we jump right into our full guide on how to not smell like weed when smoking, I want to mention to a few products that are very helpful for eliminating smell:
The Ultimate Smell Proof Set Up
This is by no means the only way to get high without any smells whatsoever, but it is by far the most convenient. If you are living in a dorm room or somewhere that you will need to consistently worry about smell, this may be a good investment.
If you aren’t in need of a permanent smell proof setup or prefer smoking over vaping, go ahead and skip this section.
What you’ll need
- For storing your weed, grab yourself a smell proof container called the DankTank.
- Magic Flight Launch Box vaporizer or a wax pen
- Smoke Buddy
All you have to do is load up your Magic Flight/wax pen, and blow all of the vapor through the smoke buddy. Unlike other vaporizers, the Magic Flight only heats up when you are actually hitting it, it will not leak out any additional smell.
I am going to break this guide down into two different sections:
- How to smoke weed without producing any smell
- How to not smell like weed after smoking
You may be wondering…
If I can smoke weed without producing any smell, why do I need to know how to not smell like weed after smoking?
Smoking weed without producing any smell is not easy. Sometimes you are going to want to sit around with your friends and pass around a joint without having to worry about following all of the steps I am going to cover below.
If you are in a place where you aren’t supposed to be smoking, it is very handy to know how to get as high as you want without anyone knowing.
How To Smoke Weed Without Smell Indoors
How to get high on the low.
There are many circumstances where you want to smoke, but need to make sure you don’t leave any traces behind. For example, if you are in a non-smoking hotel room that charges a fee should you be caught, in a dorm where you risk being expelled, or in a house where you don’t want anyone else to know what you are up to.
So, what do you do?
You could always just step outside, but that risks other people seeing you. Even if you live in a legal state, smoking in public is illegal.
You could try opening a window, but often times the smoke blows back in and still leaves a very noticeable odor.
Spray the room with Febreeze? That may cover up the smell for the short term, but often times it ends up raising suspicion even more.
The only way to truly smoke weed without any smell is to follow all of the steps I am going to lay out below.
There are two places where odor comes from when smoking.
- The smoke that emits from whatever you are smoking
- The smoke you exhale
First, let’s talk about number one. If you are wondering how to smoke weed without smell, you should rule out smoking a blunt or joint. They cause way too much odor and are nearly impossible to completely contain.
This leaves us with using anything from the following list.
- wax pen
Vapes, wax pens, and one-hitters are definitely the easiest way to smoke weed without smell since there is no smoke emitting from the cherry (the weed that is lit), but you can make any of these work.
If you are using a bowl or bong and want to completely eliminate all smell you need to load snappers. This means you only load enough weed that you know you can completely finish in one hit. This way all the smoke goes into your mouth and nothing is let off into the air.
Now that we have the cherry smoke covered, let’s move on to number two.
This is where the smoke buddy comes in that I mentioned above. A smoke buddy is a little plastic device (pictured below) that contains activated carbon. Simply blow smoke in one end, and clean, non-smelling air comes out the other. The activated carbon completely eliminates all smells.
If you don’t want to purchase a smoke buddy, you can try making your own sploof. You do this by taking a toilet paper roll, stuffing it with dryer sheets, and blowing smoke through that instead. It doesn’t completely eliminate smell, but it is better than nothing.
This strategy should work very well and produce absolutely no smell. The problem is that it’s very hard to judge how much to load into your bowl to ensure you will clear it all with one hit. All too often I have seen someone try to finish their snapper and end up coughing out all the smoke from their large hit. Or someone can’t finish and lots of smoke comes off the cherry.
There are a few things you can do to ensure that you are covered if anything like this happens.
First off, if you have access to a bathroom, you can put a towel under the door and turn the fan on. If you are really wanting to be extra safe, you can turn the shower on hot to create steam that will help eliminate the smoke.
Even better, you can get your self a bottle of Ozium. It’s similar to Febreeze but much better. Instead of masking smells, it completely eliminates them.
Simply spray a little bit right where you smoked and it will take care of the rest. Now that you are ready to smoke weed without smell, let’s hop into how to not smell like weed after smoking.
How To Not Smell Like Weed After Smoking
Figuring out how to not smell like weed after smoking depends on what you smoked and where you smoked.
What you smoked
First off let’s list the different ways to smoke and how much smell each one produces from smelliest to least smelly:
NOTE: Vapes can be very misleading. Vapes such as the Crafty, Pax, and any other kind that stay on between hits produce a lot of smell while you are vaping. This smell doesn’t stick around as long as if you were to smoke, but for about 30 minutes after smoking, it will definitely reek.
That’s why we highly recommend the Magic Flight for stealth vaping. It only heats up when you are actually taking a hit.
Where you smoked
If you just finished hotboxing a blunt in a car, you are going to have a lot of work to do. If you smoke a blunt outside and make sure to not blow the smoke against the wind, it’s a different story.
If you smoke indoors you will almost always smell pretty bad unless you take precautions. Try opening a window and turning a fan on, but that will only go so far. I found using an air purification system not only majorly reduces how much you smell, but also helps protect your furniture and carpet from the smoke.
Smoking inside a car (please do not smoke and drive), makes you smell more than you may think, even with the windows down.
The best way to smoke weed in a car without smelling is to only roll down one window at a time.
With two windows open it will create a draft where the wind will be blowing through your car. When you exhale, the smoke will go all over the place before finally finding its way outside the car.
Only having one window down removes that draft and the smoke will go straight outside.
Tips for making yourself not smell like weed
If you just finished smoking, you are going to need to worry about three main things:
- your clothes
- your hands
- your breath
All three of these are very important, and if you don’t address them all you will for sure still smell at least a little.
Smoke really sticks to clothes, especially if you are indoors. Since the wind blows away smoke pretty quickly, this is less of a problem outdoors, but still something you should look out for if you are trying to not smell whatsoever.
I recommend keeping a hoodie with you when you go to smoke. Simply put the hoodie on before you smoke allowing the smoke to stick to it and not your shirt. Once you are done just take the hoodie off and you are good to go. Personally, I have one “smoke hoodie” that I always use so I don’t have to continuously wash hoodies.
You usually don’t have to worry about your shorts since smoke rises, but if you were hotboxing they will definitely still smell.
Simply spraying body spray or cologne definitely helps, but it’s much better to actually change shirts or wear a hoodie if you can.
For your hands, I recommend either washing them or putting on lotion/hand sanitizer to get rid of the smell. Your hands will only really smell if you either touched weed itself or smoke a blunt or joint. Bongs and bowls typically don’t make your hands smell unless you packed them yourself.
To take care of your breath, bringing gum with you or brushing your teeth should do the trick. Don’t underestimate how much your breath will smell.
It won’t just smell bad, it will smell like weed. This is true for any form of smoking, vaping, or dabbing. At the very least swish some water around your mouth. It won’t completely get rid of the smell by any means, but it will definitely help.
