A recent question from a reader: How do you control the smell of marijuana in the house? 

The Stoner Mom doesn’t mess around when it comes to a stinky house. I have too many playdates and little ones running around to have a house that smells like potheads live here. Fortunately for me, my house is big and airy, so it’s pretty easy to air out quickly.

Here are some techniques for controlling the smell of your secret mommy deeds:  

1. Use a vaporizer. Gosh, I swear if more moms knew about vaping the amount of stoned moms in Colorado would double overnight. What’s not to love about it? Clean, cost-effective, odorless, discreet, and you look sexy while doing it. Something tells me having another high priced tech gadget in the house is more appealing to the average mom than like, rolling papers.

2. Limit smoking weed to one ideal spot. The best place to smoke anything is obviously, outside of your house. Unfortunately convenience rules the hurried mom, so outside might not always be the best option. I use my bedroom because it’s secure, private and airs out quickly. A ceiling fan keeps the air moving and if I open the window the room is odorless in a matter of minutes.

3. Use an air purifier. I use this one and I am in love with it. It processes all the air in my bedroom in less than an hour and is affordable enough to buy more than one for different parts of the home. As with any product with an air filter, be sure to replace the filters regularly so it can actually do its job.

4. Smelly Good Stuff:  Your last resort is to bust out the good old chemicals. Febreeze, Oust, and Lysol all make air cleaning products that don’t leave an atrocious smell of flowers and butt.


The Stoner Mom is a pulled-together, WAHM, SAHM, boo-boo kissing supermom. Most would assume she is not stoned. Most would be quite wrong.
