Let’s be real, if you live in a detached home and hear complaints about a lingering cannabis aroma from your neighbors, that’s on them. You have every right to consume cannabis on your property, especially if you live in a country or state where the plant is recreationally legal.
If you’re a medical consumer, you should be permitted to consume your medicine however you please, whether through an odorless, discreet tincture or dried flower. However, if you share a home or building with neighbors that aren’t so fond of your avid cannabis consumption, here are a few tips.

The most reliable option for smoking indoors is purchasing a handy dandy personal air filter like the many on amazon or making one yourself. These products contain filters that eliminate all odor and leave your space smelling fresher than ever.
Want to make your own air filter? Wrap a few dryer sheets around an empty toilet paper roll, stuff a few extra inside the roll, secure everything with an elastic band, and voila, a free way to smoke cannabis without the odor.
We understand the joy that comes from sparking a joint or hitting a bowl after a long day. If that’s keeping you from forming a positive relationship with your landlord and neighbors, there’s an abundance of odorless products on the market ready to solve that issue. We suggest looking into different tinctures, edibles, and beverages to see which odorless products could substitute your flower use.

If you have the option to smoke cannabis outdoors, that’s by far your best bet to avoiding complaints from your neighbors. If you’d like to ensure that your smoke won’t linger over to your miserable neighbor‘s home, it’s helpful to know which direction the wind is blowing in so you can do everything in your power to keep all odor away from those who aren’t so fond of it. Plus, smoking indoors over a long period of time might result in brown-strained walls, furniture, and decor.
Sometimes, a conversation can go a long way. Consider speaking with your neighbors or landlord about why you choose to use cannabis, how you should be permitted to use it (if you live in a recreationally legal area), and at which times you often use it. Be brave and stand up for yourself because most of the time, neighbors and landlords might be anti-weed because of the lingering stigma around it.
