The Best Smell Proof Containers for Weed

The Best Smell Proof Containers: 
For Weed

Often times, carrying weed on your person can be a little tricky since weed has a rather pungent smell. Weed gets the rawest deal of all illegal drugs in my opinion, it is the bulkiest, smelliest, and stays in your body the longest. The best way to prevent people smelling your stash when carrying your weed is to buy yourself a good smell proof container.

Although most people use Ziploc bags to store their weed, from my experience, the smell tends to seep through the Ziploc within an hour or so.

Smell proof containers are a great investment for any stoner who doesn't want the world to know they have a bag of weed in their pocket.

There are many different types of smell proof containers that vary in shape and size.

Picking out the best container simply depends on your personal needs. The range in size means that depending on where you plan on storing your goodies and whether you tend to take it with you on-the-go will influence which case you should buy.

The main purpose of smell proof containers is obvious, however many of them go above and beyond.

For example, some containers have been designed to protect your stash from UV exposure, while others are meant to keep your stash protected and eliminate shake so trichomes remain undisturbed. In this article, I'm going to go over all of my favorite smell proof containers and their uses.

Tight Vac

The first container on the list is the Tight Vac. Our herb of choice wasn't even the intended purpose of this product, many people use it to keep dry goods clean. If it's popular with suburban moms with trail mix and upscale vendors, it must be pretty good at keeping everything locked tightly inside and fresh.

Over time the seal does get a bit worn out, as it is opened and closed likely much more frequently than intended by Tight Vac.

However, a larger Tight Vac is probably best to keep a huge stash in and take a smaller one to use on the daily. They come in a large variety of sizes, as short as 7 cm or as tall as 14.3 cm with a diameter that scales as you go bigger. 

It absolutely does the trick, I think I'll bury one deep in my backyard on the off chance I can get some archaeologists stoned in 200 years. To make sure you get 100% smell proof action, keep the herbs in a plastic bag inside of the Tight Vac, no odor will escape whatsoever.

Pros

  • Smell proof

  • Air tight

  • Won't break the bank

Cons

  • Lid looses integrity after repeated usage

Stink Sack

If you like how much more portable ziploc style bags are, Stink Sacks are the smell proof version. Basically, stink sacks are a lot like zip lock bags except they are made out of materials that keep the scent locked inside. These are best for putting in your pocket or backpack and taking around with you without having to worry about using up too much space.

Stink Sacks are ideal for anyone aiming to carry small amounts of weed at a time. They probably won’t work too well for large quantities since the zipper might bulge open, but they’re cheap, easy to use, and work wondersfully.

Pros

  • Great alternative for zip lock bags

  • Cheap and easy to use

Cons

  • Doesn't work with large quantities

Ryot Hard Shell

The Ryot Hard Shell is a little carrying case that can carry much more than just your weed. The Ryot Hard Shell is essentially a storage case that is paired with a smell-proof container. Its outer design doesn’t resemble the typical smell proof containers, in fact it looks like a hygiene kit or maybe even just a general utility pouch.

The Ryot Hard Shell is a much more discreet container for those who don't want anyone to be able to tell immediately the interior contents. It can easily be thrown into a bag or purse and has a bit of give to it thanks to the softer outer layer.

With the Ryot Hard Shell, the entirety of your kit can be contained within the smell proof barriers, so even your stinky pipe won't raise alarms.  The Ryot Hard Shell does a great job at keeping the smell contained, make sure to zip it up completely when not in use.

Pros

  • Odor blocking technology

  • Memory style padding

  • Discreet container

Cons

  • Not overly large

Dope Turtle

The Dope Turtle was first produced in Denver, Colorado. The container itself is pretty small, but is great at carrying your weed. It reminds me of the Tight Vac but the seal was designed with frequent use in mind, so it doesn't wear out as easily. The Dope Turtle is hard shelled and offers UV protection to your bud, so marijuana quality will be maintained for quite some time.

Although it’s somewhat small, it has enough room to store quite a large amount of weed. It's a pretty sleek airtight container to boot, I tend to feel like my weed is more medicinal coming out of a Dope Turtle than any ol' sandwich bag. Given the Dope Turtle's popularity and high quality make-up, it is somewhat high priced, but those who will make daily use of it should find it to be a sound investment.

Pros

  • Keeps weed safe

  • Air tight

  • High quality

Cons

  • Small

  • Expensive

Medication Bottle

You might have seen this one already as they are very easily obtainable, a good old medication bottle. Inexpensive and extremely common, they're much better than I expected at keeping the odor of strong bud locked inside.

Medication bottles already have child proof lids and so they’re a good choice for carrying your weed around, there's nearly a zero percent chance of accidentally opening it. Much like mason jars, medication bottles are not totally smell proof, since they are only made to hold medication. They are pretty sturdy though, even if the dankest kush can make it's way through the bottle eventually.

Unlike mason jars, medication bottles don’t break easily and have more versatile sizes. The only way I've broken a medication bottle is by explicitly trying to, so you don’t really have to worry about them falling and breaking. The bottles are clear in color and tend to attract attention, everyone tends to look at a pill bottle the minute they see one. They have an orange tint, but you can still see what’s inside the bottle, meaning it wont be much of a secret you aren't carrying around your heart medication in that bottle. With the addition of a piece of change, your medication bottle can be converted into a rudimentary grinder, but I never really get good results from shaking a quarter around inside.

Pros

  • Smell proof

  • Child proof

  • Assorted sizes

  • Doesn't break easily

Cons

  • Not discreet

Herb Preserve

The herb preserve is another smaller sized smell proof container that resembles a container of hair gel. The container’s was built from the ground up for the stoner on the go. A lot of these containers are starting to all look pretty similar, I bet. What I can say about this one is that it is 95% effective for smell elimination but does tend to keep bud fresher than other alternatives on the list.

The Herb Preserve’s solid color and screw top lid work great, no doubt. They are a little cheaper than other alternatives on this list and I found my bud to stay intact very well with Herb Preserve.

Pros

  • Compact

  • Preserves marijuana nicely

  • Easy to screw on and off

  • Discreet

Cons

  • Not entirely smell proof

MedTainer

The MedTainer really kicks things up a notch, they're not here to f*** about. I say this because the container is not only airtight but it is completely watertight as well.

The container is essentially a suped-up medicine bottle meant to keep your weed safe from all of the elements. Even better, the MedTainer has a grinder built in so there's no need to worry about having a container big enough to fit a grinder inside. Even with all of these features, the MedTainer is still small enough to fit easily into your pocket. T

It covers all of the attributes desirable from a smell proof container and even throws in an added grinder for versatility. True innovation right here, fellas.

Pros

  • Air tight

  • Smell proof

  • Water proof

  • Built in grinder

Cons

  • Plastic construction

Kush Kaddie

Much like a regular caddy carries much more than just golf balls, the Kush Kaddy has enough room and padding to carry much more than just marijuana, meaning it allows you to carry delicate objects such as your pipe or vaporizer.

A lot of people underestimate just how stinky their pieces get and only work to conceal their bud, this container is great for your entire kit.

Although the Kush Kaddie is a bit bigger than most containers, it does allow you to safely store all your essentials at once. However, if you are only interested in storing your weed, you might want to pick another container, the portion made for weed and weed alone is only a very small part of the product itself. If you do need a container in which you can keep your nice glass pipe as well as some weed, the Kush Kaddie has you covered.

Pros

  • Padded cushion liner for delicate objects

  • Air tight

  • Smell proof

Cons

  • Small flower compartment

Trichome DankTank

Most smokers begin buying a gram or two at a time and start working their way up to quarters or half ounces. However, after that most stoners figure if they buy much more to save on weed, by the time they reach the end of their bag the weed will be dried out and not very good anymore. The DankTank can hold a whopping five ounces, that's over a quarter pound!

This is the end-game cannabis storage container. It is durable, airtight, completely smell proof and absolutely massive. In other words, this thing will last you essentially forever. Since the Trichome DankTank is solid black, it does a great job at hiding it's true use. If you're looking for a huge container that ticks all the boxes, here you go.

Pros

  • Smell proof

  • Durable

  • Absolutely massive

Cons

  • Not portable

Picking the smell proof container that is best for you completely depends on your specific needs and smoking preferences.

Think about your budget and how often you're going to use this item, as well as just how much you need to ensure total smell-proof vs near-total smell-proof. In addition, whether or not you need to store small amounts of herbs or larger amounts as well as your entire kit should be taken into consideration.

If you’re not looking to carry large amounts of weed with you at once, then perhaps the Stick Sack are best for you. If you are planning on carrying your stash with you as well as your equipment, the Kush Kaddie is the way to go.

All of these products definitely do a much better job at keeping your bud use hidden, but some are more well designed than others.

There are certain characteristics that are essential to your smell proof container. Firstly, you should make sure that the container is airtight so that no smell escapes it. Of course, the size of the container will depend entirely on your personal needs. Just make sure that your container is dependable and versatile. Try and look at the pictures of the lids of these containers and see where any possible points of failure may be after constant use.

Keep in mind that your container will most likely be dropped, have water splashed on it, or in general be slightly abused. If you decide to buy a cheaper container, bear in mind that it might break easily. With all these options available for you, it should not be too difficult to find an ideal container for your weed. 

Your nose knows. Always test your container by putting it in a different room and coming back to it after being somewhere else for a few minutes to make sure everything is tightened properly.
