The 6 Best Places To Stash Weed At Home
Does it ever feel like you have no place to leave your weed? If you’re saddled down with nosy (so to speak) roommates or family members, you may be at a loss for good stash spots. We’ve compiled six of the safest and most secure spots for you to hide your weed, to help you keep your stash safe and your mind untroubled.
In an ideal world, we’d all be able to use pot openly, storing it wherever is most convenient. But unfortunately, weed is still highly stigmatised, and in most parts of the world, criminalised as well. Many cannabis users live with roommates or family members who are hostile to weed, and for these users, hiding their stash is sadly necessary.
There are several strategies you can use to keep your pot safe. We’ll address a few, along with lessons you can pull from different approaches.
1. DEAD COMPUTER
Got an old computer that no longer works? Stick a pack of weed inside and toss the machine in a corner. There’s a sense of privacy around electronics, and few snoopers will go so far as to crack open your hardware. Computers and their parts are expensive, and your roommates and parents are unlikely to dispose of your computer without your permission, even if they know it’s broken.
One approach would be to unscrew off the backplate, stash some weed in the machine, and re-screw a couple of the screws, leaving the rest aside. This will hide the weed while also allowing you easy access. Just make sure you don’t do this with a “live” computer, as that could be a fire hazard. Also, you’ll want to pack your weed well, as the smell will travel easily through the computer case.
2. YOUR HAIR
If you’ve got long hair or dreads, then why not put them to use? Tie your hair in a messy bun, and place your baggie of weed inside. This illustrates a crucial principle about hiding weed: keeping it on your person will generally be the most secure. Better yet, in most places it’s illegal to search you without your consent, unless you’re being arrested. So as long as you can avoid committing crimes, you’ll be able to avoid detection pretty reliably. Bonus: you’ll seem very cool when you pull that primo bud out of your bun!
If you’re using this strategy, you’ll want to have strong-smelling shampoo or hair oil to mask the scent of cannabis.
3. PET FOOD
When it comes to hiding weed, your cat or dog might be your best friend. Just stick your baggie of weed at the bottom of the pet food bag and let it hang out. Pet food smells extremely strong, and will go far in masking the dank smell. Make sure the bag is well-sealed, as a weed-and-dog-chow mess is not something you want to deal with. This strategy obviously has drawbacks if other people will be accessing the food bag, but hey: you could offer to take on full pet feeding duties. The animals will like you more, and you’ll gain the perfect stash spot!
In the case of cats, if someone does find it, you can tell them it’s catnip. Keep in mind, this may not fool someone who has a passing familiarity with weed.
4. IN BAKED GOODS
If you have the house to yourself for a day or two, consider going on a baking spree and cooking up some delicious, compact edibles. Edibles will seem like normal baked goods to most non-weed-savvy snoops, and won’t emit much of a smell (though the baking process will—which is why you need to be alone for that part).
With this strategy, your main imperative is to make sure that no one eats the edibles thinking they’re normal baked goods. You’ll need to hide them well, and stick a clear “private property” label on them.
5. ON THE BOTTOM OF A DRAWER
If you have little private space, you’ll need to get creative. Taping your stash to the bottom side of a drawer can be an effective way to hide your goods from others. Note that this doesn’t mean in the drawer: it means under it.
To stash your weed under a drawer, pull out the drawer and tape your weed to the back or bottom. Then, push it back in and close it shut. From the outside, everything seems the same; little do onlookers know that drawer is now hiding some treasure! This spot should remain secure, as cohabitants will have few reasons to pull out random drawers. Make sure you practice proper smell protection for this one—you may want to place something fragrant and innocuous, like an air freshener, inside the drawer.
6. HOLLOWED-OUT BOOK
This one is an oldie, but a goodie. On the outside it looks like a book, and on the inside: weed. You can either buy a premade hollow book, or make one yourself. To make one yourself, start by picking a long, heavy book, preferably of boring subject matter. Wheat paste together all the pages, then paste them to the back cover. Wait for it to dry, and use a pen knife to cut a hole through the now-solid mass of pages.
Now you have a super-stealth stash holder. If you carve out some extra space, you can add an air freshener or two to help mask the smell.
A NOTE ON SMELL
As you may have gathered, the most important part of stashing your weed is to prevent smell leakage. A whiff of weed can lead a suspicious onlooker to start searching places they wouldn’t normally look—and could lead them directly to your stash.
The most important step in keeping your weed neutral-smelling is to pack it in an airtight container. Check out this article for advice on products that’ll lock in your bud’s smell, and help keep it safe.

10 Secret Cannabis Containers That Will Truly Hide Your Stash
Is there any better feeling than doing something sneaky and getting away with it? The answer is no.

Because of that, I’ve compiled a list of 10 places to hide your stash and be in complete stealth mode. Check it.

Smuggler Belts are dope (no pun intended) because you can walk around with that eighth on you, and still get a fit off with no one being any the wiser. Imagine rocking it out to the bars one night and someone being like, “Man, I wish I had a joint right now” and you snatch your belt off like Pootie Tang and pull a joint out of the back stitching.

Stash pockets are the wave. You can grab a stash-pocket hat or a stash-pocket hoodie, but these stash-pocket underwear are the future. If you think I’m not copping these for Coachella 2018 then you are sadly mistaken. Only way someone’s catching you with these is if they walk up and grab your crotch, but then you get to claim that’s all you (and not a sack of cannabis), so it’s a win-win.

Oh, you thought this list was gonna be all about men-type stuff? Nah, son. Ladies is pimps too. This lipstick pipe is perfect for the on-the-go woman who wants to keep her cannabis on deck, but not have it be obvious. Or for the on-the-go man who likes to feel pretty and witty and gay. Ya boy is very gender-fluid over here.

I REPEAT: LADIES IS PIMPS TOO. We all know how weird dude-bros get at the sight of tampons, so if a woman wants to hide her goods, these are perfect. Twist your joints, throw ‘em in these, and continue to outsmart us one time-of-the-month at a time.
Pitch-N-Puff Combo Pack
Listed it on my recent broiest items list too, but it’s also very applicable to this one. The Pitch-N-Puff hollow golf ball and tee one-hitter combo is one of the smoothest and sneakiest way to hide your cannabis in plain sight. Literally not a single person would take a second look at either item (unless they were closely examining them like a super-narc) and think, “Oh yeah, there’s a gram of Blue Dream in there.”
The Cigarette One-Hitter

The one-hitter, especially when complete with a dugout, is one of the most common, yet still most stealthy ways to hit a little smokey-smoke on the go. Pull out, light it up like a cig, then put it right back in your pocket before anyone notices.

Books with hollow centers are a must-have if you’re talking about hiding your cannabis in plain sight. And though you can pick any ol’ book to do so, Bibles are perfect because people don’t ever really open those. No offense. I’ve seen Bibles collect so much dust on so many tabletops, so you’re good.
Fake Soda Stash Can

These come in multiple forms as far as cans, bottles, and so on. The point for all of them is the same: a hollowed-out soda container is something no one will think twice about. Toss a bag of that green goodness in the middle, sit in on the coffee table, and then smile to yourself about the fact that people have no clue that you’re loaded up and ready to smoke at any moment. For added safety, find one of a soda that no one ever drinks. You know, like Mountain Dew.

Rolling papers that look like cigarettes. Enough said.
EZPipe Discreet Lighter Pipe

And for the best item on this list, we’ve got the EZPipe. Basically, it’s a dugout with a built-in pipe, complete with a lighter holder that puts the flame right at the top of the dugout. That make sense? If not, just know that with this, you can flip out a little pipe, light your lighter, and get a nice hitski before sliding it right back into your pocket. Hit one of these, exhale, then smirk to yourself as people try to figure out where the smell is coming from.
From smuggler belts to hollow bibles to lipstick pipes, there are plenty of ways to hide your stash in plain sight. Here, Dante Jordan lists his top 10.
