Marijuana stinks. Properly, to me, it smells like paradise, however you realize what I imply. And it’s a type of smells that the majority of us are born loving, like bacon or espresso, so in a means, it’s sacrilegious to cowl it up. However I get it. Your residing state of affairs may not allow you to blow smoke wherever you need, and a minimum of one particular person a day comes into our Durango dispensary to ask about methods to masks cannabis’s funk, so this week, I made a decision to put in writing about it.
First off, please don’t try this dumb factor the place you gentle a ton of incense and shove a towel underneath the door; you may as nicely additionally put an indication on the door that claims, “I’m completely smoking pot in right here.” I imply, the towel/incense route may get you by often, however it’s not a long-term repair. So, as my first tip, don’t smoke in a field like your bed room. Go outdoors. Sit on the roof. Open the window and stick your head out. If you wish to throw the towel into the combination, do it, however air flow and recent air are the keys.
As my subsequent tip, if lighting a plant on hearth and standing within the smoke is just too pungent for you, attempt an edible as a result of there’s clearly no hearth concerned, or a vape pen. With a cannabis vaporizer pen, the ceramic atomizer (or wick system) inside primarily boils the THC oil, so a vapor is created versus smoke. Vapors don’t cling or linger like smoke, so the minimal scent that exists doesn’t linger. For actual, with regards to “smoking,” there’s nothing extra discrete than vaping.
That being stated, let’s say you’re dead-set on smoking flower and avoiding the scent; you might want to make a “sploof.” The 1st step: take a cardboard tube (like an empty rest room paper or paper towel tube) and fill it filled with dryer sheets. In a pinch, you may spray fragrance on rest room paper and use it to stuff the tube. Subsequent, take a single dryer sheet and canopy one finish of the tube, and tape it in place (or safe it to the tube with a hair tie). Now all it’s a must to do is take a success and blow it by the tube (please blow by the top that isn’t coated with a dryer sheet). The smoke will journey by all of the dryer sheets inside your sploof and the scent can be filtered out. These items work exceedingly nicely. In actual fact, additionally they promote business sploofs just like the Smoke Buddy that use replaceable charcoal filters to remove smells, and that beats a bunch of burning incense any day.
However what about hiding the scent of unsmoked flower? Is that the query you actually wished me to reply? The one motive I ask is that fairly a number of of our clients are available right here on the lookout for “smell-proof luggage,” which isn’t one thing we promote. I’d picture that a minimum of one of many individuals who’ve requested me was on the lookout for a smell-proof bag so they may ship their pot residence or convey it on the airplane, however please, DON’T DO THIS. They’ll discover it, and it’s unlawful. For one, canine can scent something, and there’s no such factor as a smell-proof bag that’s additionally x-ray proof, so that you merely shouldn’t danger it. Ever. Nevertheless, if in case you have a roommate who sniffs round your room like a bloodhound on the lookout for your stash if you’re gone, or should you’re unfortunate sufficient to nonetheless reside along with your dad and mom after turning 21, you might need a respectable motive to cover the scent of your recent flower, so I’ll speak about it.
The trendiest means to do that is with a Skunk Bag, which is a “smell-proof” backpack or small bag with built-in charcoal filtration gadgets. However the issue with this stuff is that all of them have a branded skunk emblem embroidered on the bag, and should you’re making an attempt to cover your pot from a roommate that is aware of about skunk luggage, that little emblem will make your stash apparent. So, as an alternative of spending tons of cash on-line for a smell-proof bag, simply use a mason jar. They’re low-cost, you most likely have a number of in your kitchen proper now, and glass is at all times one of the best factor wherein to retailer your pot. Simply maintain it out of the solar (and away from prying eyes), and your pot will keep recent and never stink all on the identical time.
Lastly, please do not forget that we turn into desensitized to smells fairly rapidly. Nearly each buyer who walks into our dispensary compliments how aromatic our retailer is, however it at all times takes me a second to determine what they’re speaking about—should you spend eight hours in a room filled with pot, you cease smelling the pot. So, should you get excessive in a room and sit there for some time, it’ll cease smelling to you, however anybody who walks in will know precisely what you’ve been doing. Maintain it ventilated, use a sploof, and maintain your pot in a sealed mason jar; you’ll be good to go. Or, should you’re like me and also you wish to maintain the scent loud and proud, come see us at 208 Parker Avenue and take a sniff of what we’ve to supply (as long as you’re over 21 with a legitimate I.D.) as a result of We’re Your Greatest Buds!
