The 6 Best Places To Stash Weed At Home
Does it ever feel like you have no place to leave your weed? If you’re saddled down with nosy (so to speak) roommates or family members, you may be at a loss for good stash spots. We’ve compiled six of the safest and most secure spots for you to hide your weed, to help you keep your stash safe and your mind untroubled.
In an ideal world, we’d all be able to use pot openly, storing it wherever is most convenient. But unfortunately, weed is still highly stigmatised, and in most parts of the world, criminalised as well. Many cannabis users live with roommates or family members who are hostile to weed, and for these users, hiding their stash is sadly necessary.
There are several strategies you can use to keep your pot safe. We’ll address a few, along with lessons you can pull from different approaches.
1. DEAD COMPUTER
Got an old computer that no longer works? Stick a pack of weed inside and toss the machine in a corner. There’s a sense of privacy around electronics, and few snoopers will go so far as to crack open your hardware. Computers and their parts are expensive, and your roommates and parents are unlikely to dispose of your computer without your permission, even if they know it’s broken.
One approach would be to unscrew off the backplate, stash some weed in the machine, and re-screw a couple of the screws, leaving the rest aside. This will hide the weed while also allowing you easy access. Just make sure you don’t do this with a “live” computer, as that could be a fire hazard. Also, you’ll want to pack your weed well, as the smell will travel easily through the computer case.
2. YOUR HAIR
If you’ve got long hair or dreads, then why not put them to use? Tie your hair in a messy bun, and place your baggie of weed inside. This illustrates a crucial principle about hiding weed: keeping it on your person will generally be the most secure. Better yet, in most places it’s illegal to search you without your consent, unless you’re being arrested. So as long as you can avoid committing crimes, you’ll be able to avoid detection pretty reliably. Bonus: you’ll seem very cool when you pull that primo bud out of your bun!
If you’re using this strategy, you’ll want to have strong-smelling shampoo or hair oil to mask the scent of cannabis.
3. PET FOOD
When it comes to hiding weed, your cat or dog might be your best friend. Just stick your baggie of weed at the bottom of the pet food bag and let it hang out. Pet food smells extremely strong, and will go far in masking the dank smell. Make sure the bag is well-sealed, as a weed-and-dog-chow mess is not something you want to deal with. This strategy obviously has drawbacks if other people will be accessing the food bag, but hey: you could offer to take on full pet feeding duties. The animals will like you more, and you’ll gain the perfect stash spot!
In the case of cats, if someone does find it, you can tell them it’s catnip. Keep in mind, this may not fool someone who has a passing familiarity with weed.
4. IN BAKED GOODS
If you have the house to yourself for a day or two, consider going on a baking spree and cooking up some delicious, compact edibles. Edibles will seem like normal baked goods to most non-weed-savvy snoops, and won’t emit much of a smell (though the baking process will—which is why you need to be alone for that part).
With this strategy, your main imperative is to make sure that no one eats the edibles thinking they’re normal baked goods. You’ll need to hide them well, and stick a clear “private property” label on them.
5. ON THE BOTTOM OF A DRAWER
If you have little private space, you’ll need to get creative. Taping your stash to the bottom side of a drawer can be an effective way to hide your goods from others. Note that this doesn’t mean in the drawer: it means under it.
To stash your weed under a drawer, pull out the drawer and tape your weed to the back or bottom. Then, push it back in and close it shut. From the outside, everything seems the same; little do onlookers know that drawer is now hiding some treasure! This spot should remain secure, as cohabitants will have few reasons to pull out random drawers. Make sure you practice proper smell protection for this one—you may want to place something fragrant and innocuous, like an air freshener, inside the drawer.
6. HOLLOWED-OUT BOOK
This one is an oldie, but a goodie. On the outside it looks like a book, and on the inside: weed. You can either buy a premade hollow book, or make one yourself. To make one yourself, start by picking a long, heavy book, preferably of boring subject matter. Wheat paste together all the pages, then paste them to the back cover. Wait for it to dry, and use a pen knife to cut a hole through the now-solid mass of pages.
Now you have a super-stealth stash holder. If you carve out some extra space, you can add an air freshener or two to help mask the smell.
A NOTE ON SMELL
As you may have gathered, the most important part of stashing your weed is to prevent smell leakage. A whiff of weed can lead a suspicious onlooker to start searching places they wouldn’t normally look—and could lead them directly to your stash.
The most important step in keeping your weed neutral-smelling is to pack it in an airtight container. Check out this article for advice on products that’ll lock in your bud’s smell, and help keep it safe.

Although many of us don’t need to hide our weed anymore, there are still some of us marijuana enthusiasts who live at home or even with flat mates who disagree. If you do have to keep your marijuana use on the down low, there are some very discrete spots you can keep your stash where you can guarantee nobody will find it.
Obviously you have to properly store your buds under any circumstances, but sometimes you’ve got to do a little bit more than just that: Hide it. The thing that makes a stash spot perfect is that it is hiding not only the buds themselves but also the smell. Plus, it’s always really cool to have a special hiding spot for your magical herb. This is a list of the 10 best (and most discrete) places to stash your weed.
The basics: Wrap your buds in bags or foil
First things first. You want to wrap up your weed into a tight little packet. Be careful though, you don’t want to damage your beautiful buds. Airtight sealed bags are the best, because you can be sure that the smell won’t leak out. Some people like to use cling wrap before putting it in an airtight bag, just to be on the safe side. The best way to hide the smell of weed is to use layers, so you can start with cling wrap, then foil, and then finally an airtight bag. This should keep you on the safe side.
1. Outside, in the open air
If you live with your parents, the best stash spot might be outside the house – especially if you live somewhere in nature. You can pick a spot in the garden, across the road or even on the nature strip. Wrap it in a tight package and bury it. Just make sure nobody catches you burying it or digging it up!

2. Deodorant Stick
If you’ve ever used a roll-on deodorant stick, you know they aren’t very hard to empty out. Roll it all the way to the top and dispose of the insides. Don’t give it too much of a clean, because the smell of the deodorant is what is going to conceal the smell of your buds. Stash buds, papers and whatever else you can fit in there.
3. The Coffee Tin
Coffee is a great place to stash weed because the smell of coffee is much more overpowering than the smell of ganja. Putting it right at the bottom of the tin will ensure that no one can smell it. Make sure it is wrapped extremely well, because the smell of coffee is sure to overpower the taste of your ganja if not. Also, be careful you hide it in a pantry somewhere so that no one will use that coffee.
4. Your Dreadlocks!
Hair is a great place to stash weed especially if you are on the move! If you are taking your stash out of town with you and don’t want to get caught on the road with it, hide it in your long hair or dreadlocks. A messy bun is a good place to stash some buds although you might get stuck with the smell of dank in your hair for some time after that.
5. Pet Food
Everybody knows that pet food stinks! This is what makes it a great place to stash your weed, providing you’ve wrapped it up extremely well. If you’re not living in a house with an animal, this one is obviously inappropriate. But if you are keeping some animals, stash your buds in the bottom of the bag of pet food!
6. Stash Book
This one is an old favourite. In fact, it’s become such a popular place to stash weed that you can buy stash books “ready-made”. If you want to be even more discrete, make your own, and that way you can make sure the book is something that doesn’t look out of place. Just cut a square as big as you like through enough pages, and you’ve created a very discrete stash spot!
7. Inside the highlighter
Believe it or not, a highlighter is the perfectly discrete spot to stash your weed. You can even keep it in your pencil case, and nobody will suspect anything. You can easily pull out the top of the highlighter. Just make sure that you push some tissues down to separate the ink from your buds and put the top back in. The perfect stash spot!
8. An old pair of jeans
Nobody is going to go looking through your closet, especially through all of your old pairs of jeans. Stashing it in the pockets of an old jacket or old pair of jeans is perfectly discrete. Just make sure you’ve wrapped it with something that hides the smell so it doesn’t stink out your whole closet!
9. The famous diversion can
Most headshops sell stuff like diversion cans, and they are a good place to stash weed. The good thing about the diversion can is that it works on the go as well! Whether it’s stored in your fridge or in your car, no one will suspect your buds in there.
10. Your boots
This is the oldest and the favourite. Storing herb in your boots is so expected; probably no one will expect it. The smellier your feet, the better it works!
We hope that these stash spots keep you out of trouble!
