Dryer Sheets

One of the better tricks to not smell like pot is to keep some dryer sheets in your pockets and on your person. This tip does work a little better for those that smoke inside, as their clothes are more likely to carry that signature smell; so if that happens and you need to smell fresh for some special occasion or another, any dryer sheet will work! Then you won’t have to hear Grandma rant about the Devil’s cabbage, or whatever those crazy old folks are calling it these days!

Sweaters or Jackets

If there’s one tip you should probably follow when you’re looking to not smell like pot, it’s to set aside a particular sweater or jacket to throw on specifically for smoking.

“Smoking” Clothes


Smoking more than every once in a while means that you probably smell like pot, and everyone knows it.

Got some spare clothes and you’re still worried about the scent lingering? Throw on a little perfume or cologne, you could even use a little Febreeze. This one is fairly self explanatory — cover the smell with a better one!

If you have the ability, you should always smoke outside.

This is one of the most valuable little tips you could ever learn, and it’s pretty basic. Two-fer!

Smoke Less Joints

Don’t hate me for this, but you have to know that smoking joints is the smelliest way you could smoke. If you’re worried about smell then you should really look into getting a vaporizer or a smaller piece instead, because there’s just no way to smoke a joint and not reek. Many people enjoy the high they receive from vaporizers, some even state they’ll make your stash last longer on top of that so ideally it’s the one of the best options out there to smoke a little!
