How to Get Rid of Weed Smell
Marijuana is sometimes referred to as “skunk weed” due to its pungent and persistent odor. Weed smell can permeate virtually every surface in your home, making it seemingly impossible to eliminate—but you can get rid of weed smell for good.
Understanding What’s Behind Weed Smell
In learning about the substances responsible for that strong smell, you can better understand how to eliminate it from your home. While each cannabis strain will have a different odor, all of them contain terpenes.
Terpenes are organic compounds. These compounds can be found everywhere in the plant world, but those found in the cannabis plant are highly concentrated. This is what causes the strong aroma. When marijuana burns, smoke is released. Smoke is an effective transporter of odors like terpenes, which themselves leave stubborn odor-causing residue.
What Are Some Safe Methods to Try?
The following natural suggestions for getting rid of weed smell may work for you:
- Opening the windows
- Burning candles or incense
- Using an essential oil diffuser
- Cleaning residue from the surfaces in your home
- Cooking spicy dishes or slightly burning popcorn or coffee beans
- Sprinkling baking soda
- Utilizing products made specifically for marijuana
This, along with turning on a fan to vent weed smell, is a conventional solution. That is, unless you are trying to do so in cooler temperatures or when it’s pouring rain outside. If you only smoke on warm and sunny days, letting fresh air in while blowing weed odors out can definitely make your home feel fresher.
Burning Candles or Incense
Candles, such as those made of beeswax or soy wax, are considered to be a safe way to mask the smell of weed because they don’t contain any chemicals. The same is true of incense, which is traditionally made of a combination of resins, wood, bark, and flowers. Burning candles and incense at the same time you smoke weed can help to mask and reduce the smell. However, they’ll only do so for as long as they burn.
Essential Oils Diffuser
Diffusing essential oils is another common chemical-free way to eliminate odors. Essential oils are extracted from flowers and plants and are highly concentrated. Diffusers gradually disperse essential oil molecules into the air. This can be done by dipping reed diffusers into the oils of your choice and placing them around the room.
Electric diffusers use water to disperse the scent in a subtle stream. Most of these can be left running until they’re empty, at which point they turn off by themselves. Despite the fact that these natural air fresheners release tiny molecules of scent into the air, they are often not enough to eliminate strong cannabis odors on their own.
Cleaning with natural products like white vinegar can control the amount of residue that settles onto surfaces and get rid of the smell of weed at the same time. Cleaning in itself is considered to be a good physical activity. This is especially true if you clean every time you smoke weed. Yet this is probably not something you want to do one or more times every day.
Certain foods and smells are effective at canceling out the smell of marijuana. A spicy chili has its own distinct odor, and the smell of slightly burned popcorn or coffee beans can quickly overcome any other scents that may be in the room. Of course, these can also be delicious snacks and drinks!
It’s important to be aware that food smells will permeate your space just as easily and thoroughly as the smell of marijuana. If you don’t like this, chances are that cooking won’t offer you the odor-eliminating solution you’re looking for.
Bags, containers, smoke-trapping devices, sprays, and air filters are all examples of products you can purchase that are made specifically for the purpose of eliminating weed smells from your home. If going this route, it’s important to conduct some research. How did these products work for customers and did they work all the time? Finding these and other answers will help you avoid wasting your hard-earned money.
Sodium bicarbonate is a well-known natural odor-removing agent that you may be using right now in your refrigerator. Baking soda works by absorbing and trapping unwanted odors. The great thing about it is that it can be used anywhere; you can even sprinkle it onto your carpet before vacuuming for added freshness.
As effective as it can be for removing odors, you will have to replace old baking soda with new every so often for continued odor elimination.
Eliminate Weed Smell Safely and for Good
All of the aforementioned solutions are things you can try to get rid of the weed odor in your home, but there is one method that completely gets rid of the pungent smell of mariijuana safely, each and every time you use it: chlorine dioxide, or Cl02.
What Is Chlorine Dioxide?
Cl02 is a gas, as well as a strong oxidizing agent. When released into the air, Cl02 degrades quickly and, as it does, it releases oxygen, which permanently neutralizes odors. Also, when Cl02 degrades, it does so quickly and into a completely harmless saline solution.
Chlorine dioxide was previously only available for industrial applications because the only way to generate and release this gas was to do so on a large scale. In addition, there was no way to generate Cl02 on a small-scale, as-needed basis. Until now.
