Mariujana air purifiers can help immensely with air purity. Given the legal ramifications, users of marijuana often want to clean the air of the powerful smell caused when smoking or vaporizing. Like many persistent and powerful smells, the odor of weed can be neutralized with a proper air purifier. The hack is to use Axe body spray or another item that is thought to be even stronger a smell than pot is, but that can in fact be totally ineffective, for a host of reasons depending on diffusion, temperature, air flow etc. Having an air purifier is the best way to go. If you live in a building with other residents, then an air filter will also prevent the diffusion of the smell and can help prevent awkward or challenging discussions with the people in your apartment or condo.
If you live with someone who uses marijuana and want to eliminate the smell because it is a nuisance rather than something to hide, an air purifier is again your best bet to maintain clean and fresh air.

Don’t Green Out and Forget:
Weed Odor is Strong and Distinct
Smell aside, pot is often smoked in conjunction with cigarettes or rolled with the many, many dangerous things inside cigarettes. Aside from the smell there are serious health concerns, especially with respect to second hand smoke. Given the rise in popularity of weed, most people will have you figured out (no that you’re paranoid) if it spreads throughout your apartment, condo or dorm (Even if you aren’t smoking it, the smell can waft)
Choosing the Best Air Purifier for Marijuana Smoke
For the most part, your decision will be based on just a few factors. Room size, cost, and filtration technology being the most obvious. Fortunately, many of the products designed to filter allergens like dust and pet dander are also effective for filtering smoke. However, since weed smoke is a more complex pollutant than dust, pollen, and dander you will need to verify that your new purifier is up to the task. But don’t worry, we’re here to help sort through the features that help increase effectiveness.
Depending on your specific circumstances, you’ll want to choose something that fits your space and needs. Maybe you are trying to eliminate or cover marijuana smells, but you also have allergens and airborne viruses to deal with.
Pick something appropriate for your room size, with a good Clean Air Delivery Rate for smoke. It never hurts to buy something more powerful than you need, and you can always tone down the fan speed if you want to use less power. (Maybe you’re using too much power already as part of a grow-op).
For extra effectiveness you’ll want to have an air purifier with both a TrueHEPA filter and Activated Carbon Filters. This kind of air purifier will be the most effective, and even more so if it includes pre-filter technology which will compound the effectiveness of the other filters. If for some reason you choose an air purifier with only one kind of filter technology in it, the activated carbon will be more effective at dealing with the odor of marijuana, and the HEPA filter will likely be more effective in taking harmful chemicals out of the air.
How to Smoke Marijuana Without the Smell
We’ve already covered some very helpful ground, but if you really want to cover yourself, then you can exhale directly into an air purifier, and if you need to cover traces, ozone produces a light and distinct scent, so you could run the ionizer on your air purifier, if it comes with one, or you could buy a separate ozone machine, which, in either case, will have the effect of also making your air purifier more effective. If you’re still not sure that you’re covered, you can use the more traditional methods, like spray and pray.
If you’re smoking, you’ll want an air purifier that addresses the odors and the pollutants, and the models we recommend above are effective in that. If you are mostly vaping, and not smoking, you’ll want read the post we wrote specifically on how to address vape issues, as the air purity concerns differ. At any rate, think about what is in your weed, maybe it is just marijuana with no additives, and think about how high the concentration of the smell is (the more powerful the smell, the more you will want the carbon activated filter).
