Some people love the smell of the cannabis plant, others not so much. There are many different odors that can be emitted from the plant. If smoking cannabis is leaving unpleasant skunky odors, then you may need to consider other means of including your cannabis in your daily living.

Vaping does not burn cannabis, it heats it up and thereby does not create a smell or at least very little smell. However, if this is still an issue you may prefer to use a tincture or infused edibles to eliminate the smell.

Now, if you want to mask the sweet musky smell, you might want to try some of these methods. Here is a method of how to get rid of the weed smell in your house:

You can temporarily mask the smell with beautiful scented candles placed decoratively around your house. Pay special attention to placing them in the room that you do your smoking. This trick will smell nice but will not be absorbing the aromatic odor of your cannabis.
