A skunk-like smell wafts in from next door, which means your neighbor is baking again, and it isn’t a pie. Even if you favored legalizing marijuana, you might not want your days to be hazy. Here’s how to get relief.

1. Block the smell, don’t mask it.

A shot of air freshener may seem the most direct counter to the odor, but it means more chemicals in your air, says Joseph Pellegrine, owner of Look’N Good Cleaning Service in Newton. Instead, he recommends closing windows on the side of the house you share with your neighbor, and opening other windows to air out the space. For apartment dwellers, if the smell is entering from the hallway, put a draft stopper or similar object under the door. Or ask the neighbor to seal his or her door.

2. Filters are your friend.

In the same way you might put baking soda in the fridge to soak up smells, activated charcoal and carbon filters absorb the smell of weed. Some inexpensive examples include SmellRid and the Hamilton Beach TrueAir. You can place these around the house or apartment, as close to the source as possible.

3. Mention curb appeal.

Even secondhand smoke leaves a residue on walls and building exteriors, says David Brauer, owner of PuroClean, a cleaning service in Walpole. That residue can emit a foul smell of its own, and if left for too long, may require hiring a cleaning service like his to clean it off.

4. Spread the spoof.

A spoof, a.k.a. a sploof, filters smoke at the source. Commercial options include the Snubbz Smoke Silencer, SmokeBuddy, and Sploofy. You can craft one by stuffing dryer sheets into a cardboard tube from a roll of toilet paper, putting a flat dryer sheet at one end.

What not to do.

Don’t call the cops. Your neighbor is doing nothing illegal.

GET RID OF MARIJUANA SMOKE SMELL FROM APARTMENTS

What’s the best way to hide weed smell?

YOUR APARTMENT

You may enjoy smoking in your living room or bedroom, but it doesn’t mean you want your apartment to smell like marijuana. (Especially if you live in a non-smoking building.) Many consumers use odor masking products, like air fresheners with fake perfumes, to cover up weed smoke smells. Others have tried products with harmful chemical ingredients — like Ozium or Febreze — to eliminate the smell of pot smoke.

Only Cannabolish uses natural plant oils to attack and destroy odor molecules. No synthetic fragrances or dangerous ingredients. Use Cannabolish weed smell sprays to eliminate the smell of marijuana smoke in apartment rooms. Just mist a few pumps in smoking areas after toking up. Or light a Cannabolish weed smell removing candle in a room during or after a session. As the plant oils disperse throughout your room, odor molecules are neutralized.

Don’t rely on traditional air fresheners or homemade remedies to keep you from attracting attention from your apartment manager or landlord. Trust the proven science of Cannabolish.

NEIGHBOR’S APARTMENT

Even if you don’t smoke, you may have to get rid of weed smells from neighboring apartments. Whether across the hall or an upstairs neighbor, others’ marijuana smoke can creep into hallways, building common areas, or in your apartment.

You can’t rely on spray air fresheners, plug-ins, or scented candles to neutralize cannabis odors. All you’ll get is perfume-scented pot smoke. Cannabolish eliminates smells from second hand weed smoke and keeps your landlord from suspecting you as the source.

Spray Cannabolish in your apartment, in hallways, or any other area smelling of marijuana smoke. For continuous odor-fighting, light a Cannabolish candle and let it do the work for you.

SMELLS FROM BAKING WITH WEED

The process of making canna-butter or canna-oil for use in edibles (pot brownies, anyone?) can cause odors throughout your kitchen and apartment. Turn on your stove vent (if you have one), open your windows, and light up a Cannabolish candle while you cook. As you wait for your edibles to finish baking, spray away any remaining odors with Cannabolish spray.

SCIENTIFICALLY DESIGNED TO ELIMINATE SMOKE ODORS

The odor you smell in marijuana smoke comes from compounds made in the plant called terpenes or terpenoids. These smelly compounds can be cancelled out by introducing similar terpenes from other plant oils (like “fighting fire with fire”). We designed Cannabolish to destroy the unique stink of weed smoke, using science we’ve developed over 30 years of removing the toughest odors around the world.
