Smoking weed inside is one of the only ways to consume cannabis in the majority of US states. In fact, it’s pretty illegal to smoke outside in the first place. But if you want to consume cannabis, what are you supposed to do about the smell? Weed smoke can cause a lot of problems when it comes to indoor air quality because it’s extremely resinous, so it leaves behind lingering odors long after you’ve finished your sesh. Here’s everything you need to know about getting the smell of weed out of your home.
- Get the air moving
One of the most effective ways to get rid of weed smell is to keep the air indoors circulation. The simple act of running your ceiling fans (or oscillators) can help disperse smoke and resin particles rather than leaving them to linger. If you really want to get the smell out, invest in a carbon filter air purifier and switch it on whenever you sesh.
- Invest in Houseplants
Houseplants are a smoke room essential. They can improve the air quality in any room since they breathe just like we do. They’re even good for improving our mood. If you have decent lighting at home, invest in a few air purifying houseplants like english ivy, snake plants, spider plants, or aloe vera.
- Light some candles
While many of the standard candles will simply mask the odor, there are many candles that are specially formulated to help control and eliminate odors, including smoke. Our favorites are Dope Candles. They come in a variety of awesome scents and can keep the weed fumes at bay. Just light one up before and after your session and you’ll be good to go.
- Open the windows.
It sounds like a no brainer, but you can totally open the windows to help circulate the air in your home. Opening your windows for a few minutes every week can help prevent smoke odors from lingering. You can even keep them open during your smoke sesh if you’re using fans to help. If you don’t want to open the windows, you can always try smoking through a sploof or a Smoke Buddy to help prevent smoke odors from the get go.
- Mask the odor
Sometimes the smell is so strong the only way to get rid of it is to overpower it. Febreeze sprays and incense sticks can help. Same with essential oil diffusers and humidifiers. However, you can always try running a load of laundry, mopping the floors, or cooking something in the kitchen.
Ultimately, cannabis smoke smell will always be a problem. But with a little know-how and some regular cleaning, the air inside your home can stay pure.
