You’re in the parking lot of your job, and you have five minutes before you go in. You reach into your glove box and pull out a freshly rolled joint. You light up, inhaling the smooth smoke, look into the distance, and enjoy the moment. But wait! Now you smell like pot, and the cool manager is on vacation! What do you do? Don’t worry; our dispensary in Los Angeles has you covered!
It Starts With The Technique
Let’s face it; not everyone loves the scent of weed. It’s unfortunate, but it is what it is. Luckily, you can take countermeasures before you land yourself in a situation where you need to quickly get rid of the smell.
1. Blow Away From Yourself
This one’s pretty obvious, but during the moment, you may not be considering it. When smoking, blow the smoke away from yourself so it doesn’t get on your clothes. Be sure to blow it upwards or to the side for best results.
2. Smoke Outdoors
One of the best ways to reduce the chances of smelling like a skunk is to smoke outside. The smoke will dissipate, and less will get caught in your clothing.
3. Use A Pipe Or Vape
Try using a pipe or a vaporizer if you’re smoking a flower. These devices will produce less of a smell than bongs or joints. If you aren’t smoking flowers, try using a wax cartridge for a similar result. You can take edibles for the same effect.
Tools Of The Trade
Whether you’re a first-timer or seasoned veteran, there are some tools you should add to your arsenal. These supplies can come in handy when you’re in a pinch!
1. Removal Sprays
Cannabis removing sprays are one of the most effective ways to get rid of the smell! If you have a nosy boss, neighbor, or landlord, pick up a bottle of Cannabolish. On the flip side, you can use their candle for your home if necessary. Other scents like cologne/perfume and deodorant can also come in handy.
2. Gum, Mouthwash, Toothpaste
Cannabis odor is going to affect your breath as well as your clothes, furniture, and surroundings. If you need to get rid of the smell of marijuana, chew some minty fresh gum. Consider keeping some mouthwash or a toothbrush in a bag with you if you’re on the go!
3. Give It Time
The last piece of advice is to give it time. The smell will dissipate over time and be less noticeable. Give yourself enough time before your function to smoke and let the scent reduce naturally. We recommend anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour.
