Having the right stuff on hand is essential when trying to hide evidence of smoking weed or being high. Not only do you have to watch out for obvious signs like pungent odors, but also little things like red eyes can give it away too. Looking out for number 1, I try to keep a few key items close by in order for me to move about unbothered and unworried about being seen as intoxicated.
My checklist usually consists of things like breath mints for freshness, sunglasses for red eyes, antiperspirant to prevent sweatiness and odor buildup, gum or vape pens with good-tasting flavors that help mask any smoking smell from lingering in my clothes, air freshener just in case.
Then I always make sure I’m wearing clothes (preferably darker colors) that don’t absorb smells too quickly so that I can look presentable after rolling up without worrying about lingering odor. All these items work together seamlessly and on their own they’re enough to keep any suspicion at bay.
Eye Drops And Contact Lens Solution
Eye drops are an essential item for any cannabis smoker to keep on hand, especially if you’re like me and your eyes get insanely red after even a small hit. Clear Eyes is the brand that I personally prefer because it can be found at almost any store, and it comes in both affordable small and large bottles so no matter how much money you have, you can still enjoy the benefits of this magic eye drop solution.
Another item related to eye health that is important for contact lens wearers is contact lens solution. Whether you opt for hard or soft lenses, having a quality cleaning solution is vital to keeping your contacts clean and reducing irritation to your eyes.
Contact solutions come at all price points and with various levels of strength depending on what type of lens you use, so make sure you do some research into which one would work best for your lenses before purchasing anything. Luckily there are lots of online reviews that can help narrow down the choosing process.
Nobody likes having bad breath, especially if they are the source of it. It not only makes one less attractive to those around them, but it can also create awkward and embarrassing situations. Smoking is definitely an activity that can leave behind an unpleasant odor in a person’s mouth and this can be quite difficult to manage.
Despite all the flavors of smoke, one may experience on an inhale, the exhale is often far from trustworthy in terms of pleasantness for those nearby. Bad breath instantly creates a conversation barrier between people as no one wishes to be within close proximity when the marijuana smell is that off-putting.
There are unfortunately few solutions when it comes to dealing with bad breath caused by habitual smoking; however, there are still remedies available. Chewing gum, sucking on mints or sucking on a lemon wedge are just some of the ways that a person can try in order to mask the less pleasant aromas coming from their mouths temporarily.
Additionally drinking plenty of water and using a good mouthwash regularly can help minimize any lingering odors. Being aware of how our breath smells and taking necessary steps in order to ensure that we put forth our best selves is always important for any social interaction – smoking related or otherwise.
Hand Sanitizer And Lotion
Being an everyday smoker of blunts, I’ve come to accept that my fingers will always smell of cannabis, however unpleasant it may be. But being a smoker doesn’t mean having to live with the odor that follows.
With hand sanitizer at the ready, at all times, the smell of weed can be easily neutralized and replaced with a far more pleasant natural scent. It’s a handy (no pun intended) tool for keeping your hands looking and smelling their best in-between smoke sessions.
The lotion is another such useful tool to keep your hands looking and feeling great. Applying lotion periodically ensures that the skin on your hands is soft and nourished, far from dry and brittle. Especially after consistently handling blunts or papers, common sense dictates that your skin needs some attention too!
Regularly moisturizing will ensure that your hands are as soft as they look, but just make sure to check for any ingredients that may clash with other products you use for smoking paraphernalia – no one wants sticky gummy residue on their bud!
Wet Wipes/Facial Cleansing Pads
When you’re feeling that high, there’s almost nothing more refreshing than slapping some cold water on your face and shaking off whatever mental slumber you may have been in. But, sometimes even after the slap of cold water with your bears face, it just isn’t enough to awaken those taste buds and give them a kick-start. This means you need something else. That something is wet wipes or facial cleansing pads.
Wet wipes and facial cleansing pads are ideal for times like this because they bring an awesome strong scent with them that when touched to the skin refreshes, cools, or uplifts one’s mentality and state of being.
Furthermore, after using wet wipes or facial cleansing pads your skin feels even softer than before because of the essential oils contained in them making it easier for those pores to be free of all kinds of mess including grime, dirt, and excess oil.
And if all this wasn’t enough many of these products are enriched with vitamins giving us a little extra nourishment to strengthen our protective moisture barrier.
It’s absolutely infuriating when people think it’s okay to stink up public places with the smell of marijuana. It’s even worse when they don’t even put in the effort to cover up the stench.
Not only is it considered disrespectful, but it also shows a lack of knowledge that there are other people who may not want to be subjected to their smokey odor. A quick spritz of cologne or body spray can make all the difference in having a pleasant-smelling day in public.
If you or any of your friends have been known to indulge in some “herbal products” and then go out into public, please remember to bring along a bottle of cologne or body spray. Just a few short sprays can do wonders for weed odors and make sure people around you aren’t overwhelmed with pungent smells that they don’t necessarily consent to being around.
Not only will this help preserve your image and sense of respectability, but it will also make those around you feel more comfortable despite any lingering aromas bothering them. So, invest in some good quality cologne or body spray, and remember – spray before you hit the streets!
Proactive Ways To Reduce Smelling Like Weed
One of the best and most proactive ways to reduce the weed smell when smoking, especially on-the-go, is to be mindful of your surroundings. Standing downwind when you smoke and avoiding sitting in areas where the smoke is more likely to accumulate directly around you can be very helpful in reducing your smell footprint.
To strengthen this point further, storing your recreational marijuana in airtight bags or similar containers can help ensure that the smell of weed doesn’t leak out into your pocket or backpack.
