Weed Smoke Filter

Marijuana and weed smoke are increasingly becoming a more prominent and knowable odor in the environment. This increase is due to the legalization of weed for both medicinal and recreational use in the United States, in certain states that have passed these laws for marijuana usage. Today, there are 33 states in the United States that allow medicinal marijuana use and 10 states that prohibit recreational use of marijuana. As this number steadily climbs, the issue of eliminating smoke and weed odor in the air is even more important, especially for those states where there are heavy use and even heavier smoke plumes in the air from weed.

Whether inside of a home, in a cannabis grow house or room, and even filling the streets, smoke and weed odor can fill the air and even taint the quality of air in these environments. There are a mix of chemicals and compounds found in the composition of weed smoke that can be hazardous to human health.

What is weed smoke odor composed of and how can you successfully eliminate weed smoke from inside of an indoor environment?

Why Does Weed Smell?

Why Does Weed SmellAre you familiar with the strong, potent smell of weed that smells distinctly like skunk spray? The aroma is unmistakable, but yet confusing – why does weed smoke smell like skunk spray, it seems like an odd odor to be produced from the popular crop. The marijuana crop is filled with a mix of terpenes, organic compounds that are found in a variety of plants. There can be up to hundreds of different types of terpenes found in the cannabis crop – and certain types of terpenes will produce strong smelling odors like the infamous skunk spray odor.

Terpenes Weed Odor

Many terpenes that are found in marijuana crops can smell distinctly of thiols, the chemical that is found in skunk spray that creates that pungent odor in the air. This odor can indicate a high-quality crop that many people will strive to grow and produce in grow houses. Generally, the smell of the crop will give way to its quality – the smellier the crop the better!

How to Hide Weed Smoke

When weed is produced or smoked in an environment, the aroma will spread far and wide into the air and onto the surrounding surfaces in the area. The odor from marijuana can be a hard one to remove from the environment, as it can spread far and wide throughout the air space. If you are stuck dealing with this odor and need to hide this odor quickly, there are a variety of methods that can be deployed to try to achieve this odor removal. These methods include the following:

  • Open a Window: Ventilation and air flow will help drastically to flush out the odors from weed smoke inside of an indoor environment.
  • Spray Air Freshener: A quick fix that many will try in the environment where weed smoke fills the air is to combat it with fragrant air freshener. This solution, however, will not remove the smoke from the air it will simply mask it with a fragrance that will swirl with the odor from the weed smoke.
  • Essential Oils: A natural fragrance that can be used in the environment to help remove a lingering scent in the air is that of essential oils. From rosemary, eucalyptus, or even peppermint are all popular essential oil scents that are used to try to hide the smell of weed smoke.
  • Air Purifier & Weed Smoke Filter: Air purifiers and air filters are an easy way to eliminate weed smoke as soon as it is produced into the air. Air purifiers are designed to filter out particulates from the air and in some cases these air purifiers will also remove noxious odors from the air depending on the technology that is used in the purifier.
