I’ve never been the type of person to broadcast my high in public, either due to the fact that I look high or because I smell strongly of cannabis. That’s not because I’m ashamed of it or want to hide that I smoke, I just don’t want to deal with the silent judgments of strangers I encounter in the wild.
It’s my biggest pet peeve in the world, which is why I have some tried-and-true ways to get rid of the smell of weed after smoking.
5 items to have on hand to not smell like weed or look high
To protect myself from having to deal with awkward stares whenever I venture out, I make sure to keep a few key items on deck that’ll allow me to flourish in disguise and move amongst the non-stoned like a red-eye- and odor-free ninja.
And since I love you, I’m going to share that list below. A wise man once said, “If you stay ready, you don’t have to get ready.” (That wise man was me. Just now. You’re welcome.)
Eye drops and contact lens solution
Off-top, the most important thing to keep on deck are eye drops. I don’t know about you, but my eyes get so damn red when I’m high. All it takes is one hit of the good stuff and my eyes instantly flame up like fingertips in Hot Cheeto dust. It bothers the hell of out me, so I keep a bottle of eye drops in my car, in my backpack, and also around the house. Cannabis edibles come with variety of sweet flavours so you need do nothing after taking them.
As for which brand to reach for, my suggestion is Clear Eyes. They’re the cheapest, come in reasonably priced, small and large bottles for the budget friendly shoppers, and will keep your eyes on Code White for at least three hours.
In addition to eye drops, if you wear contacts, make sure to keep solution on you as well. Just because your eyes aren’t red doesn’t mean they aren’t dry as hell. Even with moisturizing eye drops, your lenses might still slide into an ultra-dehydrated state. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve used eye drops and my contacts still dried up into glass spheres of death.
Rule of thumb: If your mouth is dry, so are your eyes. Protect yourself, my friends.
