Light Growers can’t get away from the fact that internal farming requires a lot of it: 2,000 watts running 12 hours a day in a small bedroom looks a lot like the sun, so look out for windows that are constantly blacked out to cover that up. Cannabis farms in spare rooms will have the tell-tale sign of curtains that never open.

Heat Those lights also give off a lot of heat, so the old theory was that the house growing cannabis in the loft would be the one with no snow on the roof in winter. But nowadays growers use internal tents, that isolate a lot of the heat. This makes farms harder for police to spot using their infra-red cameras.

Activity Not all farms are inhabited by the grower so watch out for signs that there is no one actually living there: unkempt front gardens, or if your neighbour never leaves out any bin bags on collection day.

Smell Follow your nose. A cannabis crop takes about three months to produce. During the final four weeks, the plants stink. Earlier this year, Crimestoppers helpfully issued cannabis-farm scratch-and-sniff cards to 210,000 homes in the UK to help you identify the exact bouquet.

One of the best ways to guarantee total odor filtration and stop the aroma of weed getting out of your room or grow tent, is to use various products at the same time. Let’s have a look at some examples:

Before you actually start growing cannabis indoors you’ll need to make sure that air gets in and out exactly where it’s supposed to; any leaks would be disastrous and would defeat the point of hiding the smell. Once you’ve checked everything and set up your filtration system (which needs to be strong enough to filter the amount of air in your grow tent or room) you need to make sure that your extractor and air intake system is creating negative pressure, which makes sure that all of the air inside the tent or room will be sucked out via your extractor fan rather than leaking out anywhere else.

ONA gel products can be used inside cannabis grow rooms or tents without damaging the plants at all. These products are generally used to back-up carbon filters by placing them inside your ducting. They’re also used to camouflage the aroma when drying cannabis or for areas near your grow room like the hall or your garage. You can also acquire sprayers and the like so that you get the absolute most out of it.

On the one hand you can use air fresheners or odor neutralizers, which can be found in gel or liquid format and are generally used as an extra measure – they usually aren’t potent enough to do the entire job themselves when plants are in bloom. On the other hand you can also use activated carbon filters, which usually come in fabric or metal casings and are used by attaching them to your extraction fan system; they can filter up to 90% of all odors. Last, but not least, you can also use an ozone generator, which is also installed to your extraction ducting, however you must not let the ozone come into contact with your plants.

Ozone Generators

The Neutralizer is one of the best odor neutralizers that we stock. It’s made from various different essential oils from aromatic plants and it modifies cannabis odor particles perfectly, capable of covering large areas effectively. It does not affect your plants’ aroma and it’s perfectly fine to breathe in.

One of the best anti-odor brands out there is called ONA; they produce many different products including air fresheners as well as products that can be sprayed to get rid of the smell of cannabis in a flash. They also come in blocks, which are more compact than the gel format, which slowly release a combination of pleasant, nice aromas that are perfectly safe.

If you want to make your grow as discreet as possible you’ll need to set up a decent air filtration system, as well as some sort of anti-odor method that covers, gets rid of or filters the smell of cannabis. We’re going to give you a run-down of some of the best methods that you can use to hide the smell of cannabis plants indoors, which can save you a lot of grief in the future.

Odor Filter + Two Gels; This method involves installing a metal activated carbon filter in your ducting system and using two gels for extra precaution; one at the entrance to your house and another inside the ducting right before your extractor fan.

A decent ozone generator is the Uvonair generator, which uses a diffusor crown to produce ozone; you’ll need to replace it every now and then. Like every other ozone generator on the market, you’ll need to place it right before your extractor fan outlet. It should have at least 5m of ducting in front for it to work properly. In order to avoid issues with ozone leaks, we recommend using a non-return valve in between the extraction fan and the ozone generator. Place your intake fan on the opposite side to the extractor, down low.
