Marijuana is back in fashion. Not that it ever went out of fashion but with cannabis legalisation happening in most of the States, the curiosity over weed increases. Weed has a sweet and pungent smell. If you live in urban areas, chances are high that you have already come across the smell of weed.
The weed smell is uniquely attractive, strong, sweetly smoky that cannot be covered up. Marijuana is understood by the number of strains. Each strain is different, the smell is different too. You will understand the nuances once you stark vaping weed and inhale the smoke.
Often people says that weed smells like ‘skunk’. Skunk is an animal species that sprays liquid with a strong odor. The reference to skunk is because of its notoriously stinky farts! Does marijuana smell like skunk? No, it doesn’t.
How to Hide Weed Smell?
It is a real challenge to hide weed smell. Even without the smell of smoke, storing the weed strain is a tough job if you want them to go undetected by parents or cops. Start with sealable plastic sandwich bags. Put the weed in one bag, fold it and keep it another sandwich bag. Using one bag is mostly sufficient but it is safer to use two bags to contain the air and it acts as an insulation for the smell.
You could also try using Smoke Buddy. For less than $12, you get a personal smoke filter that removes smoke and eliminates odor. It is suitable for home, office, car, and travel.
Talking a bit about how marijuana tastes, each strain has its own unique taste when smoked. You will be surprised to know that marijuana is such a herb that it can be infused into just about any kind of food. Given the fact that it has a strong pungent smell, it is tasteless when consumed as a ‘food’ or raw.
