This is mainly because beginners don’t want to get in trouble with relatives, seeking to keep everything discreet with friends or avoid getting caught by law enforcement.

For more reasons besides just avoiding the police, learning how to smoke pot inside without smell is a crucial skill to have, and even more when you’re a regular smoker. Without causing a mess, learning how to smoke safely also makes you a good houseguest and neighbor. There’s nothing to be ashamed of concerning weed, but we know the people around you would appreciate your consideration and manners.

Fortunately, it is pretty simple to learn how to smoke inside a house, apartment or hotel without leaving a smell. In this guide, we share some tips from veteran pot consumers and a couple new tricks that are life saviors available for the younger stoners with technology on their side.

Go to The Bathroom

You have probably heard that from many; smoking inside without being caught starts in the bathroom. It is basically an old and trusted trick. Are you into handcrafts? Smoking inside the bathroom has its respective process. Grab your usual shower materials, a joint you've rolled up, a cardboard toilet paper roll tube, and dryer sheets from the laundry room.

Once you have gathered all the supplies, you will be able to proceed. First, roll the towel and cram it into the crack of the door to avoid the smoke escaping through this space. Then, turn on the shower and let it get steamy, as if you were in a sauna.

Next, it’s time to build your own odor trap with the toilet paper tube and the dryer sheets. Put one or two dryer sheets into the cardboard tube, similar to charging a canyon. You can try forming balls with the sheets and place them inside the tube. Leave it next to you so you can  grab it easily before you light up your herb.

When your bathroom finally resembles a steam room, light up the joint. The smoke from the lit weed will be eliminated by the steam. Smoke your joint, pipe, or whatever you’re using and then exhale the smoke through the DIY odor trap you made before.

What about the evidence? When you're done, flush the roach down the toilet, and use the bathroom vent or window to get rid of the smoke / steam. No proof against you!


Nowadays, you can find a real device that does the same as the dryer sheets shoved in a toilet paper cardboard tube. This device is called a ‘sploof’. You can get sploofs that are an awesome air filter specifically designed to provide you a safe smoking time. Why to buy one? They are small, discreet, and most importantly, they work perfectly. 

To use a sploof, do exactly what you would do with the dryer sheet and the cardboard. You exhale to one end and odorless-air emerges from the other side. Inside these, some kind of innovative filter system captures a significant quantity of odor and smoke, and if you give it an intensive everyday usage, it will last for a few months.

They come in various fun shapes, forms and colors. Choose the one you like the most and fits your needs, as each has different characteristics that make them stand out from one another.

Air Purifiers

Here is where technology and new devices become heroes. You can find affordable air purifiers at the biggest supermarkets like Waltmart and Target, as well as at small stores or at Amazon. They are cheap, easy to use, and they work wonders when it comes to smoking weed inside. It is one of those products where you can either spend a small amount or a good considerable amount and still get an effective way to keep the air in your house clean and stank-free. 

It doesn’t look suspicious, in the sense that no one who sees it in your place would think it is because you want to hide your herb’s aroma. Moreover, you can choose a design that fits your home decor to match the space.

Additionally, you will have an even better excuse if you live with animals or have people with allergies near. For these places, air purifiers are a must. Place one in the main smoking area and more in the rooms of whoever has allergies. As a result, you have a smell-proof house, with air cycling through a filter continuously. Isn’t it amazing?. If you search yourself, you will find that there are lots of options, hence consider going for a not so expensive one and purchase more than one unit so you are able distribute them all around.


When you live in a place that is way too small for smoking a joint, you need to rethink your options because there’s no way the place stays free of odors. Luckily for you, vaporizers exist. There is a reason why it is so "trendy" to smoke with a vaporizer right now, and it is not just because vaporizers are fashionable cannabis accessories. It's because they encourage you to smoke without having to think about smoking too much. It's as good as it gets.

Vaping is the recommended number one strategy to keep a stank-free house. It's the sort of thing you can do without having to think about others noticing at all, and it is also considered a healthier alternative with the advantage of an odor free smoke session. The only thing exhaled when vaporizing cannabis is vapor, which does not have the characteristic weed smell.

In case you don’t have a nug suitable for the vaporizer, consider bringing out your cooking skills and prepare delicious edibles that clearly won’t be a risk of leaving you smelling. You can find plenty of recipes online if you have no clue of how to do it.

Baking Soda

This is pretty self-explanatory. If you want to smoke pot inside without smell, cleaning products are perfect for this task thanks to their intense fragrances.

Therefore, instead of covering your pot traces up, it is often preferred to remove stank at once. Look for deodorizing products like Lysol rather than perfuming products which just sit on top of the stank. It can make the house smell neat,  and there is nothing more satisfying than a clean room where you can spend a good time. 

Do you prefer to stay away from chemicals and prefer natural room deodorizer? Look no further than baking soda. Accessible for a few dollars in big packets, baking soda is the most traditional method of getting rid of cannabis smell. Mix it with some vinegar and water, and you will have a natural way to get rid of the stank.

Another way of using baking soda for this purpose is to put it on surfaces where you smoke your cannabis. Sprinkle baking soda generously and then vacuum it thoroughly. Additionally, consider keeping your stoner room with a nice dish filled with baking soda.

Open Windows and Turn On Ceiling Fans

How smoke spreads is one of the most noteworthy things to understand about learning how to smoke cannabis inside without being caught. Instead of going further in your house, windows and fans will make the smoke go outside.

For those who live in apartments and buildings, you need to make sure that those in the area can not smell it coming from your place if you want to be cautious. Opening a window will allow you to keep the stink to a minimum. To get the weed scent out, keep the air in your house constantly flowing. Open the windows, smoke near them, turn the ceiling fans on, run around the circumference of the house wildly flapping your arms. Whatever it takes to make it disappear.

The only time you're not supposed to open a window is when you're on the first floor of a sidewalk apartment. Being this close to the outside will cause people on the street to recognize the aroma and realize what’s going on. If you don’t live in a green state, someone could call the cops on you or a cop walking on patrol near your apartment place would end up arresting you.

There is a good option to improve this method: when there are other contrasting smells in the area, it is a lot harder to distinguish the scent of marijuana smoke. This is why a very heavily scented candle for those who enjoy smoking cannabis inside their own rooms is always a perfect complement.

These different methods are the most efficient ways to smoke weed inside without smell. In case you don’t have the money to buy what is listed above, you can always find alternatives to hide the smell of cannabis. Whether you are trying to hide from judgemental relatives or wanting to keep a clean, odorless place, always remember that cannabis is nothing to be ashamed of.
