No smell harvest

27 posts in this topic

When harvesting at home there will be some smell in the house, until done and hanging back in the tent. Know I could probably harvest inside the tent. At home its no real issue just don't have no one visit on chop day and its fine. Mate has a crop on the go due to come down soon and the location really really can't have no smell. Probably shouldn't of took the place on to be honest but sometimes under their nose they don't smell it lol . Bit like when people go shopping lifting and aren't even sly but are so bait no one even thinks they are up to anything. 

 

Anyway he's gone ahead with it and is deffo in the most mental location you could choose. Is it worth him buying a tent and shoving it in the room and just get trimming in there? Still will be keeping the fan running where the plants are sat. Also are those ona block things worth buying?

Zipped up tent, filter running, ona gel in strategic locations. Burn some toast and cook a curry...

 

It all helps and it sounds like your mate can't take any chances.

Ahhh professional shoplifting. Some people have actually made millions just by having a lifestyle of pro shoplifting and never even getting caught because they don't stand out. It kind of interests me that tbh, the biggest criminals are in plain sight, bit like politicians really. 

 

Anyways about your mates solution. Get some of that draft stopping foam for doors, to stop air going through the seems of the door. That will help a lot but if you have cracks in the house walls then the smell could get into next doors house. If his grow area is big enough can't he trim in there?

 

Personally I trim in a bedroom with the foam on the door to seal it all up and have a fan and filter circulating the air in the same room. Once all done it doesn't take that long for all of the smell to go and my bedroom is pretty big. The other people I live with hate the smell of weed, yet they never complain about the smell when I'm growing but do when I'm not. So they smell weed when I'm not growing lol, because at least I have a fan and filter in the room being active when I'm growing lol.

If it's a powerful fan with a good carbon filter could it be used to keep the whole room at negative pressure? That's kind of how my set up works.

That way as long has he's not in and out the whole time wafting the smell around with the door he should be fine.
I always harvest late at night too.

I personally prefer a dry trim - I remove fan leaves and hang the rest. When it's trimming time I put a crushed up glove of garlic and a couple of cut up onions in a frying pan with oil and leave it on low heat while I trim. Seems to cover up the smell nicely

I suppose the room it self will have negative pressure, it's just different with me as I chop the plants outside the tent then hang them up in there. Gonna tell him to get those ona blocks also I'm thinking to suggest maybe varnish or paint outside for masking any smell. The boys got balls ill give him that lol one those ones that when it's done and your old you'll tell people about.

Is he secretly living/growing in a cupboard under the stairs at Peter Hitchens' house/the local cop shop?

I Would worry about the weed taking on the smell/taste of the paint when drying and tainting it,   thought about it but never tried it just imho

That's how I do it too. It slows down the drying as well, the more material the slower it takes to dry. When you grow outdoor as well you haven't got the time to trim fully on site so do a quick job of removing the excess big fan leaves and then hang up at home straight away, then trim them properly once dried or whilst they are drying.

 

Plus it stinks the most when chopping it fresh, so a quick job is quite necessary regardless really, then get to all the sugar leaves and stuff when it's dried out and not as stinky. Can take it a lot more steadier like this imo.

I was going to say a lot of the same things.

 

Chop the stalk near the root and hang the whole thing then trim when dry, make sure your trimming room is negative pressure and the exhaust goes through a carbon can. ALWAYS keep the door shut, if it is not a little hard to shut you need more extraction ;) If not possible to make the whole room negative pressure, get a tent and do it in there.

 

Smell cannot travel upwind. Hunters and growers know this...

 

Garlic and onions frying with curry spices covers what the can does not catch (and if you throw in some other ingredients you actually get a curry ;) ), and get some gel air fresheners too.

 

Approx 700-900 people and cars pass within 15 feet of my window every day which I discovered when I fitted a motion detecting camera in my window...

 

Negative pressure, multiple carbon cans, double stage smell removal FTW

Reminded me of this story.... lol

 

 

"DOPEY cannabis farmers applied dozens of coats of paint to a former estate agent office in a desperate bid to cover up the drug’s tell-tale smell wafting from inside.

The drug peddlers had 60 plants worth £25,000 growing inside the office on Leith Walk with the help of hydroponic lights.

 

But after shopkeepers and residents began to notice the odour of cannabis, the culprits hatched the unusual plan to try and whitewash their activities.

 

Two mystery men spent five hours a day between Monday and Friday painting and re-painting the exterior of the corner premises, further arousing
the suspicions of curious locals. After finishing a coat they would immediately start another – smothering the shop front in layers of cream paint.

 
 

Muhammed Imran, 35, who runs the Home Essentials store on Leith Walk, said: “We were wondering what was going on because two men were painting the outside of the shop every day between Monday and Friday. They were white, maybe 30 to 40 years old, and did not appear to be professional painters. They were just wearing jeans and things.

“We were laughing because every time a coat dried they would start again with another one. They must have painted it dozens of times because they were doing it about five hours a day for five days.

“I think some people in the street had noticed the smell. They were obviously hoping that the fresh paint smell would cover it up but it didn’t work.”

Their brushwork was undone when police raided the property on Saturday and found the makeshift cannabis factory.

 
 

Nino Del Pozo, 24, a barman at the Victoria pub across the road, said: “Lots of police were at the shop. They were taking out bags of stuff from inside on Tuesday. You could see things like lamps and extractor fans.”

Yesterday the front shutter was bent back where police officers had forced entry to the drug factory. A strong smell of cannabis was still detectable days after the raid.

S&D Properties (Edinburgh) Ltd, which owns the premises, said an Edinburgh couple recently leased the building to turn it into a “modern antiques shop”.

But shocked staff were contacted by police who told them it had secretly been turned into a cannabis farm.

 
 

Caroline Swan, director of S&D Properties, said: “We 
re-leased the property towards the end of February to a married couple from Edinburgh who planned to open a modern antique shop.

“We took proof of ID and made all the relevant checks. You hear about this happening in flats but not in a shop property in such a busy street.”

Gangsters from China, Malaysia and Vietnam are said to be behind the majority of cannabis farm operations in the Lothians. In recent years, an average of 30 plants a day have been seized by police.

Farms are often uncovered by neighbours smelling the growing cannabis while others are raided after high electricity consumption from specialised lights gives them away.

It takes three to four months to grow a cannabis plant. A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Officers are following a positive line of inquiry in 
relation to this recovery.”"

yeah, the smell often cannot be covered over, it needs extracting from the air before the air gets to the public...

Fish sauce... shrimp paste (the Thai kind)... I use these a lot so its not an unusual smell if anyone gets it...

 

But I only ever chop a small amount, so, as much as it puts the fear in me when chopping, its never too bad...

 

Ona takes a wee while to overwhelm the weed smell, but its good at what it does - better to use it as a barrier than it is to use it in the room and expect it to scrub the air - ime it doesn't really do that.

 

I'm usually too stoned to be bothered trimming late on, so I adopt the 'stink the place up' option... :D

It's already been mentioned but i will mention it again. Burnt toast is very over powering. Especially in a hurry.

He will have fans running, I've never bothered to trim inside my tent would always take the plants out and just do it in my bedroom then hang them up I'm there. Guessing if I done it inside without taking plants out it'll be a lot less risk of smells because of the filter running.
