There’s no doubt that cannabis is an aromatic herb. Rich and flavorful, smoke from this bud can linger on household fabrics like draperies, carpets, and bedding. Though the scent is often delicious and floral at first, it quickly becomes stale over time and can make your home smell musty and unpleasant.

How To Smoke Weed In An Apartment And Not Get Caught

Smoke With A Genius Pipe

Not only does the Genius Pipe offer a mix of unprecedented functionality and gorgeous design. But it’s also a discreet and non-apparent cannabis pipe. If you ask me, this one looks more like a tech device that nobody has seen before, and it’s not far from the truth.

The Genius Pipe is designed and built with high-tech features that make way for a swift and smooth pull that will not burn your lungs out, and does so by concealing your flower completely, extinguishing the fire out almost immediately, and consequently reducing the amount of smoke generated.

Use A Sploof

Sploofs may look silly, but these devices are extremely useful. Made with some dryer sheets, a toilet paper tube, a sock, and a rubber band. Read this article to learn how to make a homemade sploof yourself.

Those hoping to get real fancy can pick up some activated carbon from a pet store and add that in as well. Stuff the dryer sheets in the tube and secure one to the end with a rubber band. Another option is to buy a sploof online just like the Smokebuddy, which lasts up to 80 smoke sessions filtering your smoke and eliminating any odors. We tried it and it really works.

Then, cover the whole thing with sock and secure that with a rubber band. The dryer sheets and the carbon inside the sploof will diffuse the smoke and eliminate the smell. Having a sploof handy is perfect for both staying discrete as well as avoiding stale air afterward. If you want the best, go with the Smokebuddy.

Dab It Up

Pipes, joints, bubblers, bongs, and blunts are all super obvious ways of consuming cannabis. All of these methods involve burning plant materials. If you’re hoping to stay discrete indoors, none of these methods are very practical. In contrast, dabbing is actually a fairly good way to inhale cannabis if you’re hoping to be discrete.

The smoke from a dab has hardly any fragrance, minus a light, sweet aroma. When you dab, you’re consuming cannabis concentrates with the majority of the plant matter removed. This means that you’re going to get a much smoother smoke and you avoid the messy process of combustion.

Try this Delta 8 wax from Binoid for superior flavors but no smell.

The easiest dabbing is done with an electronic dab rig. If you want our recommendation, check out the XVAPE Vista Mini 2. Highly potent, premium quality, and affordable price.

Use A Vaporizer

Vaporizing is another great way to stay discrete while smoking indoors. Vaporizers do not actually produce smoke at all. Rather, they heat the cannabis product at a low temperature, just hot enough to melt the cannabis resin and release steam.

Like dabs, this steam has very little fragrance. This means less stale smell once you’re through and you’re less likely to be interrupted because of the delicious yet obnoxious cannabis smell. Try a desktop vape the Volcano from Storz & Bickel.

Or use a portable handheld vaporizer for added discreetness and portability. If you want a top-quality vaporizer at an affordable price then look no further than the PAX 3.

Warm Some Essential Oils

It’s always nice to go the traditional route when it comes to covering up cannabis smell. Lighting some incense or heating up some essential oil in a warmer is a great way to quickly mask that strong cannabis scent.

While many people use chemical sprays like Febreeze, strong chemical fragrances can cause a headache and aren’t the best things to be breathing all of the time.

A strong essential oil like rosemary, eucalyptus, or peppermint will very quickly mask cannabis scent and will also help you feel alert and refreshed. Lavender, orange, and lemon are three others that would do the trick.

Smoke In The Bathroom

Shove a towel under the door and turn on the fan. Smoking in the bathroom is one of the easiest ways to smoke cannabis in your apartment on the sly. Though wasteful, many people even turn on the shower to create steam, which downplays some of the smoke aroma.

Most bathrooms have a fan, which makes it somewhat easy to clear smoke out of the room fairly quickly. You can speed up this process even more by opening a window and lighting a scented candle, if possible.

You can also try Veil’s OG, an odor eliminator specifically designed for cannabis that kills the stench on both clothes and the air.


Fabrics and textiles like to hold onto smoke and odor. If you smoke indoors quite a lot, chances are your sofa and carpet has absorbed much of the stale smoke odor most people try to avoid. Washing curtains, bedding, and furniture covers regularly can help you keep your smoking habit to yourself. Or just spray this product on your furniture, carpets, and drapes and leave your house odor-free.

If you’ve just smoked inside and need to clear the air in a hurry, breaking out the vacuum is a great way to remove some of the residual odor from your house. If worse comes to worse, sprinkling baking soda on the carpet or sofa and vacuuming it up again can help trap and remove the unwanted smoke scent.
