Let's face it — when it comes to cannabis odor, old school air fresheners just don't cut it.

Aerosols only seem to mask the smell of smoke odor to create an irritating blend of artificial fragrance on top of the lingering smell of cannabis. 

So if you’re looking for the best way to truly get rid of smoke odor (and maybe get high on the low), you’ve come to the right place!

TLDR: Cousin May’s Session Sprays are proven to reduce cannabis and smoke odors, are safe for skin & linens, and feature subtle yet sophisticated fragrances.


Look for air fresheners that actually deodorize weed odor

Smoke from cannabis and tobacco has a strong odor due to chemical particles that linger in the air and latch on to surfaces.

A traditional air freshener can cover up the smell with an artificial fragrance, but this just creates a blend that can be downright unpleasant (lemon skunk, anyone?)

Cousin May’s Session Sprays use a human-safe deodorizer that neutralizes specific organic molecules (like smoke odor!) and reduces their concentration.

So if you’re looking for a way to actually rid your space or clothes of smoke odor, look for sprays with deodorizing capabilities.


Avoid air fresheners with harmful ingredients

Aerosols are bad news for you and the planet.

Xylene, neurotoxins, formaldehyde, and carcinogens can be found in the ingredients of big name air fresheners.

These chemicals can have dangerous effects on plants, animals, and humans when released into the atmosphere.

A study from Brunel University has linked conventional aerosol products to all sorts of nasty side effects, ranging from earache to diarrhea…

"Air fresheners combined with other aerosol and household products contribute to a complex mixture of chemicals and a build-up of VOCs in the home environment,” says the study’s lead author, Dr. Farrow.

​​"More research is needed but in the meantime it might be safer to limit use of air fresheners and aerosols in the home.”  [Source]

Yeah, maybe it's time to kick the canned stuff.

A simple rule I like to follow is this: if the warning label isn’t worth the time to read, the product isn’t worth the money to buy it.


Find a fragrance that fits you

When it comes to fragrance, less is more. 

If you’ve ever sprayed an air freshener too generously, you’re probably all too familiar with the stuffy, overwhelming smell of artificial fragrances.

These suffocating fragrances are arguably just as bad (if not worse) than the natural linger of cannabis terpenes — personally, I’d rather go without them!

At Cousin May’s, we only use the best of the best fragrances: premium, sophisticated blends of naturally-derived oils.

Whether you want to take your nose on a coastal road trip, or want to smell like you just came back from a morning flower market, we’ve got a scent for every space.


Stick to fresheners that are safe for skin and linens

The reason cannabis and tobacco odor lingers is that the airborne terpenes latch on to skin, hair, clothes, and linens. 

In order to best eliminate these odors, you’ll want to use a spray that’s safe to spray on everything.

So the canned stuff doesn’t cut it.

Instead, make sure that the deodorizer you're using is safe for skin and linens so you can truly target the source of the odor.



With a water-based room spray, like our Session Sprays, you’ll be free to spray away: air, skin, car, hoodies, jeans, sheets, you name it. 

So if you’re looking to get rid of smoke odor, Cousin May’s has got your back! 

Our sprays will keep your sessions private, polite, and pleasant. They’re proven effective against smoke odor, are safe for skin & linens, and are infused with subtle yet sophisticated scents.
