If you have decided to grow marijuana indoors, a good grow light might not be enough for your secret garden. Because if you want your garden to stay secret for as long as possible, you need to hide the smell of weed.
Unfortunately, nowadays only a few might not know what does weed smell like. You might come across curious, conservative air-sniffing neighbors soon. They might look at you strangely, as if you would be a wannabe “El Chapo”, involved into drug trafficking and money laundering.
What’s more? The aroma of marijuana just keeps getting stronger as the plant matures and the blooming phase sets in. Now imagine a couple of police officers with a detection dog behind your door. Neighbors usually don’t hesitate about reporting suspicious activities to the police.
Carbon Filter in the Grow Room
Many beginner growers have been caught due to the suspicious odor, and it’s a shame because it takes almost nothing to avoid the worst happening. Insulating your door or installing double door won’t help at all.
The best and probably the only way to protect your indoor cannabis garden and yourself from the curiosity of neighbors is installing a carbon filter in the grow space.
The way a carbon filter works is quite simple – the smell is absorbed by the activated carbon which acts as an absorbing agent. The molecules of the odor are basically being trapped inside the carbon substrate pore structure. The whole process is called chemical absorption.
Grow Room Ventilation
But the carbon filter put alone in the grow space won’t do anything at all. To use the carbon filter, one also has to set up an extractor fan which will push the cannabis smell through the filter, thus installing a complete grow room ventilation and getting rid of weed smell in your living space.
Some people prefer installing the carbon filter in their existing ventilation system DIY style. However, it’s possible to purchase the whole system with the filter included as an essential.
Such as this Carbon Filter Kit , it includes:
It’s better to install a small exhaust fan because if the ventilation will be too intensive, the lifespan of the carbon filter will be even shorter. Some growers buy a special controller for the exhaust fan but it’s completely unnecessary if you have the appropriate size fan installed.
The advantages of our filter:
HERE is our easy step by step photo instruction on installing your carbon filter kit in a grow tent.
We bet that you have experienced paranoia before while smoking cannabis but now that you consider growing you should think more about all the safety measures. Especially the smell of weed that might struck many curious noses. After all, the carbon filter kit will provide safety for you as a hobby gardener and only then to your marijuana plants.
What else? You will feel a lot safer and your plants will get more oxygen.
So I highly recommend putting a carbon filter kit in your grow room or grow tent if you haven’t done it already.
