Many marijuana growers opt for the more homemade methods, as they work and disguise the smell of cannabis to a high degree and do not need to spend money on other products, however when they decide to choose these methods, the plantations they have are usually a smaller size. Below I will show you some more homemade methods with which you can save “a little bit” if you have an indoor cannabis crop of a small size.
Homemade methods of concealing the smell of marijuana
Ozone generators can be of two forms, those that distribute the ozone by the room doing effect inside the room or those that purify the air and the odors that go out to the outside through the ventilation duct.
There are several methods of masking the smell of cannabis, ranging from the most inexpensive and homemade tricks to using products that have been manufactured exclusively for this purpose.
Here are just a few of the many links to research from reputable institutions all saying the same thing: Ozone generators are bad for humans!
These are hands-down the best option for controlling marijuana grow room odors. Carbon filters (also called ‘carbon scrubbers’) will actually pull the smells out of the air, neutralizing any odors that pass through.
Also, using these products on your cannabis plants can reduce or alter their natural smell.
Therefore, while air purifiers may be a good choice for other reasons, I do not recommend getting one just to try to get rid of smells in your grow room.
How to Find & Install The Right Carbon Filter
If you use Ona products in your living room, den, or other open areas, no one who enters those rooms will be able to smell any sign of your cannabis plants, even if the plants are just a room away.
A grow room with flowering marijuana plants is a factory for that delicious tell-tale smell, and to protect your girls, you’ll have to make that smell a non-issue.
3.) Install fan and filter into exhaust system
The most common way to do this is to set up a carbon filter as a part of your exhaust system in a sealed grow tent, and use an exhaust fan pulling hot air away from your grow area. As hot air is pulled out and away from your plants, the carbon filter scrubs odors from the air on the way out.
