Humidity control is key when growing cannabis indoors, as cannabis plants benefit from different levels of humidity during different stages of their life cycle.

If you need to limit the aromas associated with consuming marijuana, you will need to purchase odor-proof storage and traveling containers, sploofs, or a personal air filter. You may also want to focus your consumption on vape pens, edibles, topicals, or tinctures, as these products generally do not carry the same strong odors as flower and its byproducts.
