How To Eliminate the Smell of Cannabis

WRITTEN BY: Helaine Krysik

There are many long-standing ways of getting rid of the smell of weed. Legal issues aside, depending on where you live, the smell can be overpowering and unpleasant. So, users rely upon tried-and-true ways to get rid of the odor. These are some of the most popular methods:

Smoking in the shower can be effective, as the hot water vapor can help to break down the molecules that make up the scent in weed. Using a fan at the same time can also help to make the process faster.

Pungent car fresheners are another popular option, especially scents such as fresh pine or black ice; scents that are stronger than weed and can cover it up till the smell fades.

Sprinkling baking soda also works well, because the alkaline in baking soda helps to neutralize the acidic nature of the weed smell.  

Another controversial – yet effective – method of getting rid of the smell of cannabis is burning popcorn. Yes, burnt popcorn. Deliberately adding an extra minute or two to the cooking time on your microwave popcorn will fill your house with fully cover any weed scent. However, you’ll have to deal with another incredibly unpleasant smell that lingers.

And lastly, Ozium, an air freshener specifically made to eliminate smells such as smoke, is a go-to method that is not as well-known as some of the others. While effective, it can be toxic and is strongly recommended for outside use only.

One of the biggest factors behind the rise in alternative methods of ingesting cannabis is the lack of smell, and as a result, the ability to be more discreet.

This is why vaping, edibles, tinctures, and pills, have become more popular. Cannabis is gaining more mainstream acceptance, but users still largely want to avoid attention, so ingestion methods that provide discretion are a big draw.
