The strong smell of weed can potentially attract unwanted attention. Concealing the scent of weed can be necessary to avoid the social or legal consequences of growing cannabis at home. There are ways to suppress the odor of cannabis. One of these is to use carbon filters. However, it’s not a fool-proof way of hiding the fact that you are growing weed. It’s also a good idea to vent the filtered, exhausted air away from your neighbors. There are strains with low odor.

You will get used to the smell of cannabis that you may not notice it on your hair or clothes. It is important to take regular precautions in order to keep the whole entire house clean and fresh. The grow room should be kept well-ventilated as well. Masking the smell of marijuana with another odor runs the risk of only creating two different scents on top of each other.

Choosing to grow strains that are naturally less pungent is one of the best ways to avoid the problem. You will find different varieties that don’t have a strong smell, but you should keep in mind that they will still produce some odor. The effects of such strains won’t be any weaker. These strains will only attract less attention and suspicion while growing. Here are some strains that produce low odor.
