Reducing The Smell of Cannabis

Cannabis use, whether for recreational or medicinal purposes, often comes with a distinct and persistent odor that can be challenging to manage. If you're seeking to maintain discretion and avoid lingering smells in your home, effective odor control is essential. Here, I'll explore various strategies and products available at Cloud Cat that can help reduce the smell of cannabis, focusing on proper storage, personal air filters, vaporizers, dabbing, scented candles, and room sprays.

Strategies for Reducing Cannabis Odor

Proper Storage

One of the first steps in managing cannabis odor is proper storage. Airtight containers prevent the smell from escaping and permeating your living space. Here are some tips for effective storage:

  • Material Matters: Opt for glass or high-quality plastic containers specifically designed to prevent air exchange, thereby containing the scent of the stored cannabis.
  • Size Appropriateness: Choose a container size that closely matches the quantity of cannabis to minimize excess air and potential odor leakage.
  • Odor Lock: Vacuum-sealing cannabis in bags or vacuum-sealed containers, as well as smell-proof bags offer an additional layer of protection. 
  • Location Consideration: Place the storage box in a location that is accessible yet not in direct line with common areas to minimize any potential scent dispersion.

Using Personal Air Filters

Personal air filters are excellent tools for reducing the smell of cannabis smoke at the source. They work by filtering the exhaled smoke and trapping odors. Here are some top choices:

  • Stokes Personal Air Filters: These compact, portable devices are highly effective at filtering out smoke and odor. Simply exhale through the device, and it captures the smell, ensuring that your environment remains fresh and odor-free.
  • Smoke Buddy: The Smoke Buddy is an easy-to-use personal air filter that significantly reduces smoke and odor. It's perfect for those who need a discreet way to enjoy cannabis without spreading the smell.
  • Yocan Personal Air Filters: Designed for convenience and effectiveness, Yocan personal air filters are portable and can be carried anywhere, making them ideal for on-the-go odor management.

Vaporize Your Bud Instead of Combusting It

Vaporizers heat cannabis to a temperature that releases cannabinoids without burning the plant material. This method produces significantly less odor compared to traditional smoking methods:

  • GPen Vaporizers: GPen vaporizers offer a clean and efficient way to consume cannabis. They produce minimal odor while providing a smooth, flavorful experience.
  • Stündenglass Modul: The Stündenglass Modul is a sophisticated vaporizer that uses gravity to produce smooth, flavorful vapor. It's not only effective at reducing odor but also adds a touch of elegance to your cannabis experience.
  • Ooze Vaporizers: Known for their reliability and effectiveness, Ooze vaporizers offer a discreet and odor-reducing alternative to smoking, making them a popular choice among cannabis users.


Dabbing involves the use of concentrated cannabis extracts, such as wax or shatter, which are vaporized using a dab rig or an electronic dab device. This method is beneficial for several reasons:

  • Reduced Odor: Dabbing produces less odor compared to smoking cannabis flower because the concentrates are vaporized at a higher temperature, which significantly reduces the amount of residual smoke and smell.
  • Efficiency: Concentrates are highly potent, so you need a smaller amount to achieve the desired effects, further reducing the amount of odor produced.
  • Discretion: Devices like electronic dab rigs are compact and produce minimal vapor, making them ideal for discreet use. You can also opt for trying vape carts with batteries. The flavor may not be the best like if you were dabbing, but there are different batteries out that that can help you achieve what you would like. 

Scented Candles and Sprays

When eliminating the smell is not possible or practical, masking it with pleasant scents can be an effective alternative. Scented candles and room sprays are popular options:

  • Cannabolish Candles and Sprays: These products are specifically designed to neutralize cannabis odor using natural ingredients. Light a Cannabolish candle or spray a room with Cannabolish spray to keep your space smelling fresh and clean.
  • Smoke Odor Exterminator Candles: Available in a variety of pleasant scents, these candles are specially formulated to neutralize smoke odors. They are perfect for use during and after smoking sessions to keep your environment fresh.

Combining Methods for Maximum Effectiveness

To achieve the best results in reducing cannabis odor, consider combining multiple methods:

  • Proper Storage: Use airtight containers to keep your cannabis fresh and contained.
  • Personal Air Filters: Employ devices like Stokes, Smoke Buddy, or Yocan personal air filters to capture smoke and odor at the source.
  • Vaporizers or Dabbing: Opt for vaporizers such as GPen, Stündenglass, or Ooze, or consider dabbing to reduce the amount of odor produced during consumption.
  • Scented Candles: Burn Cannabolish or Smoke Odor Exterminator candles during and after your session to neutralize any remaining smells.
  • Spray Room Fresheners: Use Cannabolish room sprays to quickly freshen up any space and eliminate lingering odors.
