How To Filter Cannabis Smoke and Odours From Your Home

HEPA and Carbon filters are your new best friends...

Whether you smoke in your own home or you're trying to filter smoke and cannabis odours from your apartment that are coming from your neighbour, Austin Air purifiers are very effective at making the air in your home smell fresh and clean again!

Carbon and HEPA filters are very capable at removing the smell of marijuana smoke while cleaning the air of smoke particulates. HEPA stands for high-efficiency particulate air.

True medical grade HEPA is the most effective particulate filtering material on the market and is made from very fine paper (not synthetic materials). Unlike electrostatic precipitators or air filters that use negative ions, a HEPA filter can actually intercept and trap unbelievably small particulates which allow the air to remain clean without the creation of harmful byproducts. A medical grade HEPA air purifier will clean the smoke particulate you can see, but more importantly, it can help eradicate the particles that you can't!

Austin Air purifiers also combat weed smoke by employing an active carbon filter. Activated carbon is produced by exposing a source of carbon to extreme heat, causing it to become more porous and increasing its surface area. One tiny piece of activated carbon has so many pores that the surface area may be larger than a regulation football field. The porous surface of activated carbon works to absorb odors and chemicals as air passes through it.  An air purifier with a substantial amount of carbon is required to effectively remove smoke and odours from the air.  Less expensive units from other brands often only contain a few ounces of carbon which is not going to help remove smoke or the skunky smell associated with cannabis.  Our larger standard size HM400 air purifier contains 15lbs of activated carbon, while our smaller junior sized HM200 model contains 6.5lbs of activated carbon to better remove 

Below are some of the best air filters which can remove cannabis odor as well as clean the air.
