420 with CNW —How to Smoke Cannabis Without Inconveniencing Your Neighbors

October 26, 2020 15:25:35

Cannabis has one of the most recognizable and possibly controversial odors in the world. It’s one of those smells you can identify as soon as you get a whiff. Sometimes described as “skunky,” cannabis smoke is thick, aromatic and tends to linger in the air and on fabrics. If you’re living in an apartment building or in close proximity to other folks, chances are they will get a whiff of your cannabis too.

Plenty of people are now working from home, and it’s likely that trend will continue. Additionally, the tumultuous events of 2020 have led to more people smoking cannabis to reduce stress and anxiety and to promote relaxation. However, while cannabis may be beneficial for you, your neighbors may not be on the same page. If you live in close proximity, you will have to find a way to minimize the smell.

For starters, try different methods of consuming cannabis. While smoking offers the quickest results, plenty of other methods work just fine and may offer even greater effects. Edibles, for instance, have become a staple for people who want to consume cannabis but would prefer not to smoke. While edibles are relatively easy to make with the right equipment, you can also buy them from retail cannabis stores. Although the effects take some time to kick in, they generally last longer than smoking. An edible may take 30 minutes to an hour to kick in, but the effects can last up to six hours.

The nascent cannabis sector has gained notoriety for its innovation. If you don’t want to use edibles to consume cannabis, tools exist that can help disguise cannabis’s potent smell. You could use a premade filter or even build a homemade filter, called a sploof,  to minimize the odor and prevent it from lingering on fabrics. All you need are dryer sheets, a cardboard cylinder from a used toilet paper roll and elastic bands.

Additionally, covering up cannabis’s funky odor with another equally strong smell could do the trick. Natural incense such as sandalwood or palo santo, certain scented candles and potent essential oils such as lavender, eucalyptus and citrus will cover up the odor as well as freshen up the room. Note that some scented candles may not work as well as the oils.

Ideally, smoking outside is the best way to avoid inconveniencing your neighbors with cannabis’s musty odor. If you have a balcony, a yard or a terrace, you’re better off smoking your cannabis out there.

Innovations within the cannabis industry are coming in thick and fast. One firm that you should watch is Sugarmade Inc. (OTCQB: SGMD). The company focuses on meeting the industry’s delivery needs, especially at this time when the ongoing pandemic has made it risky to visit brick-and-mortar stores to make cannabis purchases.
