When in Phuket, many of you might indulge in some relaxation with the use of cannabis. But, if you’d rather keep the aroma of your relaxation session under wraps, this blog will guide you on keeping things fresh and discreet!

1. Be Smart with Your Smoking Spots

The aroma from smoking weed can spread fast, especially if it’s a strong strain. If you’re in a hotel room or a rented apartment, make sure the area has good air flow. Open windows and doors to help air move. If you can, smoke close to an open window and blow the smoke outside. Using a small fan near the window can help push the smoke out faster. And once you’re done, keep the window open for at least 30 minutes. The same idea works when handling cannabis flowers; their smell can also fill a room quickly.

2. Clear the Evidence

The smell can hang around longer than you think, not just from the smoke. Tools like pipes, bongs, or ashtrays can keep the smell going. So, clean them and put them away after using. Finished with your joint? Throw away the used up bit (the roach) and any ashes. If you smoke inside, close doors to rooms, like closets, to keep the smoke from making your clothes smell.

3. Vaping: A Less Smelly Option?

If you’re thinking of vaping, you’re on the right track. Vaping heats the cannabis without burning it, so it gives off a vapor, not smoke. This makes it easier on your lungs and reduces the smell. However, vaping does have a unique smell, but it’s less intense and goes away faster.

4. Mask the Weed Smell

After smoking, you can use a few tricks to cover up the smell.

  • Incense: Scents like nag champa, sandalwood, or lavender can cover up the weed smell. But using them might also signal to others that you were just smoking.
  • Essential Oils: Oils like peppermint, rosemary, or patchouli can help. Put a few drops on your hands or use a diffuser in the room.
  • Sploofs: This is a DIY tool many have used over the years. It’s made using a toilet paper roll with fabric softener sheets attached to one end. When you smoke, you blow out through the sploof, making the smoke smell more like laundry.
  • Air Fresheners: There are many air fresheners you can use in a room that still smells of weed. There are even special ones for cars that you can hang in a smelly room.
  • Air Purifiers: They can be a bit expensive but are great for clearing out smells. They use filters to trap and get rid of the particles that make weed smell.

5. Storing Your Cannabis

The smell isn’t just about smoking. How you store your cannabis can make a difference.

  • Airtight Glass Jars: The best way to store your weed. They keep the smell in and your weed fresh.
  • Smell-proof Bags: Good for travel. Some even come with locks.
  • Odor-Proof Wooden Boxes: These boxes look nice and keep the smell in check.
  • Odor Absorbing Gels: These are like scented candles without the flame. They can help reduce the weed smell in a room.

6. Freshening Up After Smoking

The smell can stick to you too! So, wash your hands, maybe change your shirt, and brush your teeth. Using cologne or perfume can help. If you can’t change clothes, sprays like Febreze can make them smell fresh.

7. How Long Does the Smell Last?

It depends on where you smoked and what you did to reduce the smell. But with good ventilation and some freshening up tricks, most smells should be gone by the next day.


Many people love the smell of cannabis. But if you’re trying to be discreet, especially in a place like Phuket with many tourists, it’s good to know how to manage it. Remember, others might smell it more than you do, so it’s always best to be careful and considerate. Enjoy your trip and stay fresh!
