Getting Rid of The Weed Smell

How to Take Care of That Weed Smell Inside Your Home

Cannabis enthusiasts tend to love the smell of good weed from near and far, but not everyone wants their home to smell like the crew just got done with a hotbox session in the living room when mom and dad are coming over for dinner. Combusted cannabis has an unmistakable odor that can stick to fabrics such as clothes, furniture, carpet, and window shades. 

Although the folks that we hang out with tend to enjoy the smell of combusted cannabis, we can’t refute the research showing 25% of Americans have reported to “hate” the smell of weed.

If your home is your cannabis mecca, but you don’t want your home to smell like the bong that you haven’t cleaned since 1998, we have a few strategies for taking care of that weed smell inside your house.

Storing Weed

Potent weed often comes with a robust odor that can reek up the whole place if not stored properly. When storing cannabis, always keep it sealed in an air-tight container free of airflow. Mason-style jars or equivalent work perfectly. Not only will you help contain the smell, but air-tight containers will also keep your flower fresh for a more extended period.

Incense and Sprays

Contrary to popular belief, candles and incense can draw more attention to your smoke session. Your home ends up smelling like weed rolled in freshly laundered blankets. It’s a dead giveaway, and we don’t recommend trying to cover that pungent weed odor up with flowery incense or sprays.

Personal Smoke Filters

That toilet paper roll with a dryer sheet rubber-banded to it will not cut it. Leave personal smoke filters to the experts, who produce products that do work to a certain extent. Many of these products use multiple filters or a charcoal screen. If you are not familiar, as you exhale, you’ll expel smoke into the filter where it removes the unfavorable smell. As we said, they do work to a certain degree. You might still find a slight odor after a session; it may just be milder.

Air Purifiers

If you’re reading this, it might be time to consider an investment in a quality air purification system. Air purifiers work to remove odor-causing substances rather than trying to mask them. 

Air purifiers are made of a fan that sucks in air and circulates it through filters that the air runs through before it is released. As air moves through the filter(s), pollutants and particles are captured, and clean air is pushed back out into your home. These types of systems have been used by cigar smokes for a long time.

No More Smell

At Strains Dispensary, we like to say – filters are your friend! They work like baking soda does within your fridge. A strategically placed filter with activated charcoal or carbon can absorb that weed smell effectively. Ideally, this filter should be placed as close to where you choose to smoke as possible. But if you are truly worried about the smell we recommend taking a look at our wide selection of edibles, as they produce no lingering smell.

10 Cannabis plant Facts From Strains Dispensary in Perris, CA

We think cannabis is an amazing plant with countless health benefits and we want to share 10 interesting yet less-known cannabis plant facts that might help inform the role of cannabis in your life and potentially help you select the ideal product to treat your presenting ailment effectively yet holistically.


Cannabis Sativa Evolved in the Tropics  

Cannabis Sativa adopted its upward stretch, thinner leaves, and uplifting THC high from evolving in tropical regions with intense heat in an environment defined by intense plant competition. 


Cannabis Indica Evolved in the Hindu Kush Region

Cannabis Indica evolved its shorter, bushier stature and couch-lock heaviness from growing in the harsh mountainous region of the Hindu Kush. 


Cannabis Hybrids

Hybrids are those plants whose genetics are somewhere between true Indica and Sativa. Although a plant geneticist will be quick to point out that almost all cannabis plants today are hybrids, the term is commonly used to describe plants with middle-ground genetics. 


Increased Heart Rate

Studies have confirmed that cannabis can increase heart rate for up to 3 hours after smoking. Although more study is needed to confirm implications, the increase in heart rate may be related to an increased probability of experiencing a heart attack. At Strains Dispensary Perris, we recommend that our older patrons or those with heart disease to introduce cannabis therapies after speaking with a qualified physician.  


Once a Pipe Dream – THC Levels are on the Rise

Cannabis growing technology, breeding methods, knowledge of the plant’s genetics, and not to mention – consumer demand – have created a market by which the potency of cannabis flowers, as evidenced by the percentage of THC, is on the increase. I think that we can all agree that today’s cannabis flower from Strains Dispensary Perris has a quality that was once considered mythical. The frosty flowers that we once could only witness on the cover of a famous 1990’s marijuana magazine are now readily available at Strains Dispensary Perris in a candy-shop-like selection of products that were once a pipe dream.


Effective Treatment for a Range of Ailments

A remarkable feature of Cannabis is producing cannabinoids proven to be effective at treating a huge range of ailments including depression, pain, insomnia, anxiety, and anti-cancer just to name a few!  


Anti-Cancer Cannabis Cannabinoids: THC & CBD 

We can cite research as early as the 1970s finding anti-cancer properties among cannabis cannabinoids with THC & CBD being targets of popular study. THC not only helps with cancer-related insomnia, nausea, and depression, but recent studies have shown that THC & CBD delivered in a 1:1 ratio can be an effective anti-cancer therapy. 


Cannabis, THC & Mental Illness 

Cannabis does come with an increased risk of mental health side effects for those with preexisting mental illness or those prone to experience mood swings, paranoia, anxiety, or depression. Those with mood instability or a mental health diagnosis should consult a qualified practitioner before introducing cannabis therapies.  


The Classic Cannabis Edible Story

It’s a fact that some people trying edibles for the first time take too much because they take a second dose believing that the first dose was ineffective only to find the first edible has yet to kick in. We recommend that first-time edible consumption get paired with significant patience by waiting at least two hours before taking more. 


Strains Dispensary is the Best Dispensary in Perris 

Okay, so we made that up due to slight bias; however, we do operate a quality dispensary with an impressive inventory of cannabis products including flower, edibles, vape cartridges, concentrates, topicals, and all of the gear that you might need on your journey to improved wellbeing.
