Mylar bags are a great affordable option to control cannabis odor. On Amazon, a pack of 100 sells for just $10. Food safe mylar bags are a better choice for cannabis storage than non-food safe mylar bags. While mylar bags might not be the most effective option, they still provide good odor control especially for edibles. However, Hemper offers smell proof mylar bags specifically designed for cannabis storage.
