Why does my sweat smell like Weed?

Everytime while I'm working out and I open my arms and do something I always get a huge whiff of this smell of marijuana. I shower daily and put on deoderant so why does my sweat smell like weed?

Btw I don't smoke weed, but a lot of my friends do but not around me.

  • Your body is getting rid of unwanted bacteria, so: If you want to be "odor-free," consider the following tips:

    After washing with soap and completely drying, immediately apply an underarm antiperspirant. Remember, deodorants do not prevent sweating. They mainly mask the smell of the bacteria on your sweaty skin. Antiperspirants are chemical agents that reduce sweating. Many antiperspirant preparations also contain a deodorant, which helps to mask the smell. Check the product you use to make sure it contains an antiperspirant.

    Keep your underarms dry. Bacteria have a hard time breeding in dry areas of the body.

    Try a solution of hydrogen peroxide and water to fight body odor. Use one teaspoon of peroxide (3%) to one cup (8 ounces) of water. Wipe this on affected areas (underarm, feet, groin) with a washcloth. This may help destroy some of the bacteria that creates odor.

    If sweat from working out is your No. 1 cause of body odor, wash your workout clothes often. Sweaty gym clothes are a bacteria-breeding ground.

    Change your diet. Sometimes, fatty foods, oils, or strong-smelling foods like garlic, curry, and onions, can seep through your pores and cause body odor. (Always see a doctor or dietician before making drastic dietary changes.)

    If you have excessive sweating (called hyperhidrosis), talk to your doctor. There are many treatment options for those with more severe sweating who desire more permanent treatments. Also, certain medical problems can lead to excessive sweating. Your doctor can make a diagnosis and prescribe treatment.

    Shaving your underarm regularly will help prevent the accumulation of bacteria and can reduce sweat and odor.

    I work in a gym, it's normal, that's why we have atleast 3 air-purifyers aswell.

  • Sweat Smells Like

  • I know a guy that like myself cannot smoke weed and he gets some real fruity skunky flavours whiffing off of him, although I hate to say it, I think I know the reason why... the main difference between us is that he DRINKS AND DRINKS ALCOHOL,

    I believe the exuded chemical to be Uric acid.... which forms when the organs can't metabolise all the booze....

    I read a book which mentioned this from the '20s and they reffered to the smell as "piss", remember this is before sinsemillia (like skunk) were widely available ..

    I remember when Skunk #1 appeared and everyone said it smelled like "piss"... (hence the name Skunk Weed)?

    Uric acid is essentially the main ingredient of Urine..

    So you are probably sweating piss?

    I don't know, but it is the one single medical reason I have ever heard which explains this!

    Of course this answer will provoke a torrent of replies stating that "I don't drink"!

    Just my 2pence

    PS sweating uric acid is BAD! and will be accompanied by agonizing gout.

  • My man too! Well his is more like a skunk smell(LOL) but sometimes its a hint of marijuana and he doesn't smoke either! He also showers and uses deoderant daily and also cologne but by the end of the day he is smelly! I'm sure it's normal, just shower a lot and use cologne.

  • Well here I am too, someone in the gym told me i smell like skunk last night, I thought it was because of that joint i ve smoked in the morning but reading here it might not be the cause.. :p

  • mine does too and i don't smoke and have never done weed either

  • sometimes weed does smell like sweat - kind of sickly sweet? haha that's kind of funny though i've never heard that before

  • Do you smoke out a lot? When people eat too much garlic - their sweat smells like garlic,... so.....???
