Does Vaping Weed Smell?
Anyone that has ever enjoyed the pleasures of weed knows that weed tends to smell in a somewhat peculiar way, alarming everyone around you that you are in fact smoking a joint. If you were living as a Rastafarian, nobody would question this, but most people don’t live like that, so that leaves you with a few alternatives, and some of them are not that great. They involve blowing smoke out the window, placing towels at the foot of the door, using scented candles or vaping.
We would advocate you try vaping. If that sounds tempting to you, then you should continue reading this article and find out does vaping weed smell.
Let’s start with the basics. The first thing you need to know is that the smell, the high and the taste of cannabis depend on the strain that you’re using. Each strain contains different terpenes. Terpenes can be found in all essential oils made from herbs because they are the ones that determine the aroma of the plant. A lot of the terpenes found in the marijuana plant are also found in other plants.
For example, some strains of weed contain limonene, which can be found in lemons, and thus when you're using that strain, the smell will have a strong citrus scent. Some cannabis strains also feature strong pine smell, earthy smells or even candy and sugar.
If we’re being honest, when you smoke marijuana, masking the odor is almost impossible. Depending on the size of the room, and the ventilation, the smell can stay inside a room from a few hours to a few days. Furthermore, as with cigarette smoke, the weed smoke can linger on clothing.
Right about now you should start considering vaping marijuana, as the best alternative to smoking it. There are a lot of health benefits that can inspire you to switch from smoking to vaping, but since we’re on the subject of smells, let’s answer the question does vaping weed smell? Yes, it does, but a lot less than smoking a joint. Let us elaborate.
Even though there is no combustion if you’re using a dry herbs vape pen for vaping weed, it’s possible the smell will still show up.
However, since we’re dealing with vapor and not smoke, the smell will dissipate quickly, and there will be no lingering odor on your clothing or in your home. The scent also depends on the model of the vaping device that you’re using. If you selected one of the older models, which heats the herb via direct contact with the heating surface, the possibility for a stronger smell is high.

The next question we’re going to answer is, do weed vapes smell? As we said above, some vaporizers for weed smell more than others. If you’re using a dry herbs vape pen, if you want to avoid the device smelling like weed, you’ll have to commit to cleaning it on a regular basis because the odor will linger inside the chamber. The cleaning process is rather easy and straightforward: cleanse the chamber and the other elements with warm water (or rubbing alcohol — just make sure you read the manual first) and let them dry out.
However, if you use a vape pen, which allows you to use concentrated oils and waxes, then there will be no smell whatsoever on the device. It’s still advisable to clean your vape pen thoroughly because residue builds up faster when you’re using oils and waxes. If you have any problems getting rid of the remains inside the chamber, try rinsing it with alcohol after you finish washing it with warm water.
These vape pens are elegant and discreet enough, so you can even vape weed in public without anyone noticing you.
Does vaping smell?
If you’re wondering does vaping smell, in general, then the answer would be it depends on the vape juice you’re using, but first things first. As anyone knows, tobacco cigarettes smell a lot, and there is not a single person that can’t recognize cigarette smoke, and most of the time people are not fond of it. Cigarette smoke makes your clothes and your hair/fingers smell like tobacco, too. That’s because when you light up a cigarette, the tar that causes the smoke also causes the unpleasant smell.
When you’re vaping, there is no combustion and no tar. Hence, the logic behind this is very simple. If there is no tar, then the vapor would not smell. However, that’s not always the case.

As we said above when we were discussing does vaping weed smell, the highest possibility for people to smell the vapor is when you’re located in an enclosed space. If you’re vaping in your room or a lift, the people around you can probably sense it.
The components in a vapor include propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin and flavors. The nicotine in vape juices is optional because it can be quite addictive. You can also find flavorless e-liquids on the market that have no odor of any kind.
