So I just bought this racing seat off Amazon for $90 and it reeks of weed like I can’t stand the smell anyway to remove this smell?

Pro tip: start smoking weed so everything smells like weed. That way, the chair doesn't stick out anymore.

 

 

/s ofc

Febreeze isn't enough.

 

You're gonna have to clean it with a baking soda paste.  If plain baking soda and water doesn't do the trick you could try baking soda and white vinegar but you'll want to test a spot to see if it discolors the fabric first.

RMA it and buy a better chair ¯\_ (ツ)_/¯
The above is my actual recommendation, but if you really want to keep it, maybe try something that's suggested here: 
How to Clean an Office Chair (with Pictures) - wikiHow

I am NOT a professional and a lot of the time what I'm saying is based on limited knowledge and experience. I'm going to be incorrect at times. 
My build:
CPU: 10700k Oc'd to 5.0 ghz                            GPU: RTX 3070 ventus 2x
Motherboard: Asus z490-v                                Cooler: Deepcool castle ex 120mm
Ram: Team tforce delta 32gb 3200mhz cl16     Case: Phanteks p418r (p360a ripoff) 
PSU: Apevia Prestige 800w

Notes:
Spoiler

To me the 10700k seems pretty underrated. It's a very solid cpu. at 5.0ghz it draws 175-185w under full load. the Asus z490-v is a sh*t teir motherboard, I wouldn't recommend it for anything past a 10600k for light oc's only. Tforce ram is pretty but cpu cooler clearance can be an issue on them, so beware. the RTX 3070 is obviously a great card, but the ventus 2x is just horrible. Don't buy it, not now, not ever. It's flimsy af, you can't increase the stock power limit, the cooler is worse than the one on the 3070FE. If it's a choice between this and nothing, choose nothing. The deepcool castle ex 120mm isn't really on sale outside of prebuilts, but it's a nice pretty cooler, gets my 10700k up to 96c after a prime95 cpu test for 15 minutes. The p418r is basically what it looks like. P360a, slap a few cyberpowerpc logos on it, and you're golden. The Apevia Prestige 800w is bad, but not terrible. Runs respectably quiet and isn't a bomb. More than a lot of PSU's in prebuilts can claim.

1/2 and 1/2 vinegar and water. Spray. Wipe. Repeat.

Vinegar doesn't discolor fabric, it's too mild.

Lightly dust it with baking soda, it absorbs oder. Wipe it down or hand vaccume it up after a few days.

I did this to my carpet when i moved into my apartment because the previous tenants hotboxed the place. Worked great.

I don’t think I’m going to return it because I got it for $90 and it costs $400

If you still have odor after trying all that, you could possibly just leave it outdoors (Under a canopy, in a carport or something) for a few days in fresh air.
You'd want to be sure it's getting air if for example there is a breeze blowing but not have it get wet or anything like that. As long as fresh air is getting to it that should work as well as it's going to. 
Normally that takes care of alot of it anyway and the longer you can do that the better but not for over a week I'd say.

Definitely take it back inside after a week if you let it go for that long.

Glad you got it sorted, hard to tell in the photo if fabric or not, was going to suggest an upholstery/spot cleaner like this and left outside to dry. The chemicals with these also often do deodorise as well.

You can also hire industrial ones and even pay a carpet/upholstery cleaner with a similar or steam cleaner.

UV can help with stains and odours if outside, just have to watch for fading.
