Some people can step outside and light up their favorite strain with no problems. But as for others, smoking indoors is a must.

Getting high inside isn’t always easy, though, especially if you live with others. Or, if you’re renting a place that forbids smoking period.

So what’s a pot smoker to do in cases such as these? Just like the old English proverb states, where there’s a will, there’s a way. In other words, anything is possible if you want it bad enough.

On that note, here are the ten best ways to get away with smoking weed indoors.

Dab It Up

Many forms of cannabis consumption incorporate the use of a smoking device. 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.

Know that dabbing does produce vapor and it has a smell to it. Never as pungent as dry herb smoke, but it’s still good to mention. Maybe start with small dabs and see how the vapor behaves.

For a pleasant dabbing experience that is rich in flavor, try Binoid’s Delta 8 wax. It comes in 6 strain options and delivers a gently and enjoyable high.

Use A Genius Pipe

With a Top Secret Stealth Genius Pipe, you’ll be able to use your cannabis discreetly without anyone noticing. It comes with a unique and smart unlocking system that allows you to slide its metal lid to cover the bowl, thus closing in any unwanted smells.

The pipe is equipped with patent-pending technology that extinguishes the flame almost immediately which will eliminate your lungs from burning out. It is completely odorless, reducing the amount of smoke produced by up to 85 percent that comes from a regular pipe or a joint.

Try Vaping Instead

Using a vaporizer is a perfect alternative if you enjoy smoking and share space with family or friends. Instead of having to go outside or out to your balcony, you can stay indoors and enjoy your cannabis vape.

Like dabs, the vapor produced by these devices has little to no smell, and it vanishes in seconds. Just take your hits, turn it off and enjoy.

The new DaVinci IQC is a great alternative for both dry herb and concentrate vaping. It has DaVinci’s trademark quality but at a more affordable price. Read our review to learn everything about it.

Use Odor Eliminators

If having your place reek of pot is your biggest concern, then do invest in a proper product that can help you eliminate the stench.

We recommend you try Veil OG. It happens to be one of the most effective odor eliminators around. Plus, it’s specifically designed to eliminate weed smell from clothes and the air.  It’s an all-natural way to smoke indoors without getting in trouble.

The Shower Is Your Friend

In case you are surrounded by people who would rather you not smoke the devil’s lettuce, then this solution is perfect for you. All you have to do is smoke in the bathroom and run a hot shower.

Or, you could always smoke while you bathe, too. Just be sure to open a window when you’re done.

Control Your Sesh With A Sploof

Smoke filters are ideal for masking the smell of pot. But not all of them work as well as they say. That’s why you need a Smokebuddy, the most powerful and discreet air filter of them all.

You can blow out of that baby up to 300 times with flower, and 400 times with concentrates before you need to worry about replacing its cartridge.

Or, Make A Sploof

Are you low on dough? Or, perhaps just a cheapskate when it comes to smoking accessories? If so, save your money and make your own air filter using dryer sheets and a toilet paper roll, also known as a sploof. Follow these three simple steps, and you’ll have one in no time.

Get A Ventilation Fan

Sure, it may not be the most comfortable thing in the world. But hey, ventilation fans work. Just have a seat, fire up the ganja, and blow the smoke out the window. It doesn’t get much easier than that.

Add A Little Noise To The Equation

In other words, turn on some music. Or, increase the volume of your TV. It’s not just the smell of weed you have to worry about, but also all the noises.

Too much coughing or flicking of the lighter might raise suspicion. And don’t forget about the sweet sound of bubbles that come with ripping your bong.

Don’t Forget To Cover Up The Smoke Alarm

The smoke alarm is the biggest snitch in the house. With that said, cover it up to make sure it keeps quiet. Just make sure to uncover it again once you’re done smoking.
