10 Ways To Get Rid Of The Smell Of Weed Smoke

Stoners love smoking weed in all the wrong crazy places. I’ve seen some off the wall photos of smoke spots and places where people are smoking. I personally don’t try to smoke in areas of high traffic of non smokers. If I do, I try to use some of these methods if possible.

Does anyone else have any other ideas to keep your weed smoke stealthy.

1. Toilet Paper Roll Trick

Easy to make and consists of household products. Below are simple instructions if you’re too stoned to figure it out. I’ve used this method many times and have yet to see it fail. I recommend using a bowl or pipe with this trick.


While looking for pictures of this. I stumbled upon an old video of a funny white kid explaining and showing how this works. This kids persona had me laughing throughout the whole video.

2. Vape Pens

The new inventions of vape pens have taken away the smoke and smell. As you can see above. One of our team members is on a plane with his vape pen. Way too crazy for me. Get a vape pen for less than $100.



3. Smoke Near A Fireplace

If you’re house has a wood burning fireplace then you’re good. Start a fire and smoke next to it and people will never smell the ganja smoke. Perfect for winter time tokes.

4. Vacuum

I cannot vouch for this method at all. Just think like the stoner skateboarder from Friday After Next and you’ll be fine. Craig knew this wasn’t working at all. Has anyone ever tried this before? You can watch the full scene here.


5. Spray

The most obvious and common thing people do to get rid of the smell of weed smoke.

Update: This means all types of sprays. Febreze, ozium, green air cleaner or any type like those do the trick. I don’t recommend cologne. It only seems mask the smell for a very short period.

6. Cigarette Smoke

If you’re out in public try to sneak some hits in by cigarette smokers. The smell of cigarette smoke kills just about all other smells. Which, in this case, is a good thing. I used to do this back when I only smoked weed. I would use my one hitter when my friends would go out to smoke cigarettes.

I know most marijuana smokers hate cigarettes. But this about your safety to get rid of the smell of weed smoke.

7. Smoke In A Freezer

I wanted to get the part in Waiting where T-Dog & Nick (Andy Milinoskis) smoke in the freezer. I think they were doing whip its though. Whatever they were doing, smoking in a walk in freezer is so stealth. It is so cold that you can;’t smell a thing including weed smoke. I’ve tried this one time for shits and giggles.

I worked at a restaurant much like the one in Waiting. Weed was no big deal. Everybody smoked or could careless about people smoking. I decided to take a hit out of my one hitter while in the freezer. You’re already producing steam because of how warm your breath is. So, seeing some smoke isn’t going to look too out of the ordinary if someone were to walk in. Even if they did, they won’t be able to smell it. Below is the wrong way to smoke in a freezer.

8. Window Method

This might be more obvious than the spray. But if done wrong, all the smoke will end up back in your room. If you follow these simple steps, you have nothing to worry about. Well, besides getting caught. If you’re using this method, you’re parents/roommates clearly aren’t cool with herb smoke lingering. I’ve used this method while family is home and never had a problem.

A. Use a bowl or one hitter. Bongs and joint make too much excess smoke that isn’t going into your lungs.
B. Crack your window. Do not open it all the way. If you blow smoke out of the window like that, a lot will just come right back into your room. See below as to how far, at most, the window should be opened.
C. Take a big but small enough to not cough type of hit.
D. Get close to the window that’s cracked. Slowly blow the smoke out of the window. Watch as the smoke travels away.

9. Detergent Trick

The HMJ staff does not condone this trick. I saw this idea on /r/trees. It looks like it would work just like the toilet paper roll trick. It also looks like it could go terrible wrong and annoying to setup.

10. Don’t Smoke

If none of these ways will work for you then I think you shouldn’t smoke. I’m kidding, go find a way to get high.

    I worked at a restaurant where we all smoked…plenty of places to smoke there too, lots of little nooks and crannies outside…but this dumbass smoked in the freezer and ruined it for all of us. He didn’t just take a hit–he smoked half a blunt. You could DEFINITELY smell that shit! Haha.

    • He wasn’t trying to hide the smoke at all then. He seems like a huge dumbass.

      I worked at a lumber yard and my coworker would bring a blunt everyday so we’d smoke with me on the huge diesel forklift so it looked just like we were working and one time the boss came out so I smoked him out with the black diesel exhaust and he had no clue anything odd was going on. As a kid I used to use the toilet papertube and dryer sheet contraption in the bathroom with the exhaust fan running and I got away with smoking a fatty bowl while taking a shower all the time with my grandparents staying with us and nobody suspected anything. My friend took his gpen vaporizer with him to disneyland and it just looks like an ecig but he had bomb wax. Virtually no smell and it conserves on how much is used so your stash lasts longer.

        Fucking cool. I’ve tried all of the above. Heehe I love my vape pen. Is the greatest creation eveerr….

    Don’t smoke? Not an option. Great post homey

  • Headro

    Recently purchased a smoke buddy. It worked perfectly. It leaves zero odor and nearly zero smoke even comes out. You could take hits in any public bathroom and no one would ever know.

  • rick

    freezer trick totally works, was in usp atl, for 5 years, routinely burned, daily, in the kitchen walk in freezer, 0 smell !!

  • whiteboy

    The detergent bottle looks cool too probably better than toiletpaper tube. I have a dabuddha vaporizer too and it doesn’t smoke out your house or hardly smell. And we use a gpen with wax probably one of the greatest inventions ever. A gram of wax lasted me and my stepson a week on the gpen and I know him and his friends smoke their gpens right in the middle of class and the teacher and everybody else have no clue and they can get high anywhere without creating any smell and the vapor u exhale disappears in seconds so if the blow your hit down at the floor no one will even see it in a matter of seconds. I’ve seen people getting high on the city bus and nobody knew a thing. Definitely gpens are one of the greatest inventions in this industry ever along with the grinders. Must haves!

    Also when I smoke I go out on my patio so my house isn’t all smoked out if someone shows up at the door. Also I have two small children in the house so I smoke outside to keep it away from them. I’m a medical patient but I want to make sure the kids have no access to or exposure to anything just in case the cops wanna be dicks and bring in cps. I keep all my stash locked up in a lockbox on the top shelf of the closet where the kids can’t reach it and I even designed a closet grow with a lock on the door and stay within the legal amount I can grow just to make sure my ass is covered from every angle. Even if u r a medical patient they can charge u with child endangerment and cps can take your kids from you if the kids have accessto your medicine. But iI’ve had the cops open my grow closet and see the whole setup while searching for my stepson and I told them right away I’m a medical patient its a legal grow op and I’ve got all my paperwork to prove it and they told me they don’t care about that they just wanted to locate him. Its scary dealing with the law and all these agencies that can really ruin your life so I always make sure I’m all legal so I can even give cops a tour of my growop and there’s nothing they can do. I live in ca and u can have 6 mature plants or 12 vegging and there’s another cultivation paper for 100 that legally allows u to grow up to 99 plants! I’m planning on doing a backyard grow 100% legal and since I’m the caretaker of my minor stepson I can get him the same paper and we can legally grow 198 plants in our backyard and if law enforcement shows up we have all our paperwork in order and within the limits of senate bill 420 as far as plant count and all our shits tight and legit there’s absolutely nothing they can do. You know how much weed 198 outdoor monsters can produce? More than enough for my needs so I have a dispensary I frequent that accepts local growers and will legally sell their extra meds. Its a comeup and if u do it right and have your shit in order you can fill your backyard with 8-9ft and even bigger monster plants producing sometimes up to 3 lbs per plant for the massive outdoor sativa trees that can stretch up to 20 ft tall. All you need is a private backyard or growplot that won’t attract too much attention to neighbors or people driving down the street. If the police helicopter does a flyby and sending the cops to your door you can show them the whole operation and your paperwork and they can’t touch not 1 plant. My advice for everyone and I stress it with teaching my stepson is to blend in if u are doind anything. I have a nice haircut look like a normal family man drive a minivan and make sure I can deal with law enforcement at anytime safely and I just blend in and don’t draw attention to myself. The minivan is a great disguise think about it what cop is gonna be looking for criminal activity in a minivan ? It blends in. In my younger days I was a big drug dealer and I would pay a friend to drive me in his grandmas minivan to go connect for that very reason cause I felt safer. Cars that stick out get noticed and if u need to be safe blending into society driving safely and looking like any other law abiding citizen is the way to go. People don’t even look at me twice I just blend in the best I can and stay legal and most importantly I know my rights in my state cuz I’ve had cops in my past do some dirty shit just to make the bust including false search warrants that aren’t signed by an approving judge yet and if u don’t know what your looking for they search your house illegally and have the judge sign it later and I’ve personally had the police do this to me in the past so more important than anything is to know your rights if u r gonna be up to something. U don’t have to let them into your house unless they have a search warrant and legally if they or anyone else shows up at the door ur not under any requirement to even answer the door. If they had a search warrant and a reason to be there they wouldn’t be knocking, trust me. In my past I’ve been raided several times and they made forced entry. I learned that the cops do dirty shit during raids and will do anything to make the bust legal or not and they can get away with violating your civil rights unless u research and learn exactly what your rights are. I’ve had corrupt cops bust me in my younger days and nobodies there to police the police. Know your rights stay legal and blend in people. Be smart. Cops notice who has nice rims on their caror the know your bumping your subwoofers u attract aattention like that. The obvious is the obscure and if you blend in well enough you can get away with almost anything right in front of people in broad daylight without even causing a second though. Be smart with whatever u do and best of all stay legal and don’t have a reason for them to show up in the first place. I used to drive around at 13 in my moms car selling weed and I had cops right behind me and I just acted like I was supposed to be driving used all my turn signals and obeyed all traffic laws and they didn’t pay me any attention. Just don’t get nervous and drive stupid and be in a vehicle that blends in and there’s no reason to pull u over in the first place. Everybody should check out barry coopers videos on youtube. Hes an ex narcotics officer that retired and is now pro pot and he teaches how to deal with police and teaches you how to pretty much avoid a bunch of scare tactics and bs that law enforcement does in fact use to make the bust and try to gather info out of you and u can avoid illegal search and seizure but u have to know exactly how to say caertain phrases and when to say them and u can use the law to your advantage and barry cooper tells all the tricks and teaches u how to get away with shit and avoid the games altogether. I think everyone regardless of what they are into law abiding or not should watch his videos and know how to handle police. So I know my rights know how to handle law enforcement keep it out of reach of children and out of vision for neighbors and public and most importantly stay legal at all times cuz now I’m untouchable and can legally grow and sell massive amounts of medicinal marijuana and its perfectly legal but u must know the law and your rights. At that point it really don’t matter if your neighbors see an orchard of 12 ft tall plants in your backyard cuz if they report u your ass is legally covered and the cops can’t even do anything lol so what your neighbors might not like it but nobody can do anything about it if its legal. Stay legal know your rights and blend in as much as possible and keep yourself safe for along time. I’ve learned the hard way without knowing my rights so I make sure to educate everyone I know to keep them safe too. The cops have pulled over my teenage minor stepson and asked if he’s been smoking weed and he’s not driving shows his medical marijuana card and they couldn’t do a thing about it because he knows how to deal with those situations correctly and they couldn’t take his stash or do anything to him because I’ve trained him to be smart and stay legal and all the other stuff so he can be safe in what he does. I believe in marijuana and have been using it since 12 yrs old regularly and my mom decided shed rather have me do it in the safety of my own home so I wasn’t out getting busted on the street. In fact all my friends parents were like that and schooled us a lot of how to avoid attracting attention to yourself and how to do things the smart way. I would much rather let my kid smoke pot cuz I know it won’t kill him and I know he’s safe. Hes gonna do it anyway so I’d rather him be safe and legal and controlled and know what he’s up to as opposed to him doing all the other crazy shit kids have access to nowdays and getting busted or overdosing or doing illegal dumb shit that kids do. I’ve got the peace of mind that he’s safe under my roof and not doing anything crazy and it really does help his bipolar symptoms and he’s not as rebellious as he used to be before medical marijuana. I know he’s not getting weed laced with anything and we can legally walk into the dispensary and he can buy anything there legally safely etc. Not to mention I don’t have to worry about him getting involved with shady street dealers and being placed in dangerous situations like was the case when I was a kid. It should be legalized for recreational use and recognized as a medicine rather than as a drug already. When I smoke I don’t go out breaking the law and all these other stereotypes people have of potheads. I chill at home and stay out of trouble. I pay my bills am a great father and husband and contribute to society and mind my own business. I’ve learned so many lessons throughout my journies and experiences in this game that I learned how to do things the right way so I have the freedom to continue. I learned from my mistakes and from others mistakes and learned how to stay off the radar and I share my knowledge with all my friends and family so they are better prepared too. I suggest everyone watch barry cooper on youtube and learn your states laws and abide by them and do what u do the smart legal and right way

    Dont be Stupid,Do Not Smoke In Public,For Any Reason,and do not be holding where any Law are,or will be,If Your State Isnt Legal To Smoke In,Be Careful in Every Way,Most Law are on a merit System,and get a Raise in Rank,or Pay or Both,for every arrest,and Drugs Is there Best Arrest,It will Cost You Up in the 10s Of Thousands Of Dollars,if you are caught with a Roach in Some States,and you will not be able to talk your way out of it.I know of one person getting Jail Time and a Fine,plus his auto Impounded,for TWO SEEDS,AND A TINY PIECE OF STEM,just because it was in his Truck,not on him,and there was another Passenger in there too.
