What Causes the Cannabis Odour?

The strength of the cannabis smell is influenced by the plant's harvest time and the presence of terpenes. Harvesting a mature cannabis plant results in a more potent odour, while younger plants produce a milder scent. Terpenes, which offer therapeutic benefits, also contribute to the odour. For instance, strains high in linalool, such as Amnesia Haze and Pink Kush, tend to have a stronger smell due to the abundance of this fragrant terpene. The smoking process itself, including the combination of rolling paper, ash, fire, and smoke, also contributes to the pervasive cannabis smell.


Tips to Prevent Cannabis Odour

Several strategies can help minimize or prevent the cannabis odour:

  • Choose cannabis strains with a light fragrance, such as Northern Lights and Blue Mystic.

  • Store cannabis in an airtight container to maintain its freshness and prevent a strong odour.

  • Consider alternative consumption methods, such as vape pens or edibles, to avoid the smell of smoke.

  • If smoking is the only option, use a pipe instead of a joint or bong, as pipes produce less smoke and, therefore, a milder smell. Additionally, consider using a 'sploof', which is a homemade device for exhaling smoke through a filter to reduce the odour - although you might need to have this imported if you are from the UK.
