Weed Measurements: weights chart, prices and tips

Whether we grow our own cannabis or buy it from someone else, we like to use familiar terms for the amount we are buying. If you’re new to the world of cannabis you may feel surprised by the number of slang terms used for various weights of weed. Often, the starting point for weed weights is usually an ounce. Numerous sub divisions of an ounce have evolved, often with their own unofficial names.

How many grams are in an eighth of an ounce of weed?

Here is a list of some of the most commonly purchased weights of weed.

Ounce Gram
1/28 of an ounce (‘a gram’, ‘a dime bag’) 1 gram
⅛ of an ounce (‘an eighth’) ≈3.5 grams
¼ of an ounce (‘a quarter’) ≈7 grams
½ of an ounce (‘a half’) ≈14 grams
1 ounce (‘an ounce’, ‘a zip’) ≈28 grams

The cost of cannabis

The amount you will pay for cannabis can vary greatly. Whether you are in a legal or illegal cannabis country, the more you buy the cheaper it gets. Costs also vary significantly from country to country. An ounce of weed in Colorado (where it’s legal) will cost you less than it would in Saudi Arabia or Singapore (where prohibition is violently enforced).

If you know the person growing the cannabis then you may be able to buy it at cost/discounted prices. If you are new to an area with no contacts you may have no choice but to pay expensive street prices. But for many people in Europe, UK and USA prices of around €200/£200/$200 are not untypical if you are buying around an ounce of mid-range cannabis. Of course, you can pay a lot more for the very finest produce.

This article assumes typical street pricing of around €200/£200/$200, though we appreciate this varies significantly even within the same country. It’s also worth adding that even in areas with legal cannabis supply, there are those that will offer black market budget priced cannabis at prices that undercut ‘official’ prices and can be cheaper than the €/£/$200 level suggested here. However, quality/purity can’t always be guaranteed.

Conversely, in countries with regulated cannabis supply, some connoisseur black marketeers sell at prices higher than dispensary prices. Here, the reasons often given (sometimes with justification) is that the best of the black market weed is superior, grown from better genetics, or is truly organic.

An eighth of an ounce of weed:3.5 grams of weed. Working on a typical street price of around €200 per ounce, an eighth of an ounce should cost around €/£/$25. However, small purchases of weed are usually the least affordable way to buy it. Typical street costs can be nearer €35-40 or more, thats around €10 per gram for mid range cannabis. Higher quality strains can be twice the price!

In big cities, street prices can be higher with no guarantee of quality. Disillusionment with high weed prices is one of the main reasons people decide to grow their own.

Grams Cost
7 grams €/£/$50-60
14 grams €/£/$100-120
28 grams €200/£200/$200

A quarter of an ounce of weed: 7 grams of weed. Often this can cost around €/£/$50-60.

Half an ounce of weed: 14 grams of weed. Cost is usually around €/£/$100-120.

A full ounce of weed: 28 grams of weed. Usually you can pay around €200/£200/$200 for an ounce of mid-range cannabis, much more if you are in an expensive area or have few contacts. Even in legal dispensaries, the best quality strains can cost upwards $300 per ounce. That’s up to twice the price of the cheapest budget strains. Those with a friendly network of good growers may be able to buy weed for less.

Weed measurement chart in ounces and grams

Often the metric/imperials systems are used alongside each other. Just like other commodities, cannabis is more affordably priced when bought in large quantities. However, cannabis is far more than a commodity.

Large quality differences can exist from grower to grower, with much depending on the quality of the cannabis seeds, grow conditions and grower expertise.

Most cannabis supply networks, whether legal or illegal, have a pricing structure for budget, average and premium strains. Therefore pricing for a given weed weight can vary according to the quality. Sometimes the real challenge can be working out whether a strain is really worth the premium being asked.

Most of the day-to-day cannabis purchases are relatively small ones, a quarter ounce or less. Those buying in countries with regulated cannabis sales may have restrictions on maximum purchase amounts. In a Dutch coffeeshop you are usually restricted to buying a maximum of 5g of weed at a time.

Other slang terms for weed amounts

Lots of different local terms can be found for describing weed measurements. The origins of these terms is often unclear, with some of the original meanings being lost over time.

Dime or Dime Bag

A dime bag is often regarded as the smallest weed amount. If you are short of cash and just need enough weed to roll a joint or two then a dime bag is just what you need.

How many grams of weed is a dime bag?

1 gram of weed is typical. Often you will see just a single small bud if you are lucky.

How much does a dime bag cost?

Historically a dime bag cost around $10, hence the name ‘dime’ bag. But even that can change. These days, if the bud is particularly good quality, you may be asked more than $10 for it.

What does a dime bag look like?

Usually you can expect a small plastic bag, not much bigger than your thumb. But with any luck you can get one decent sized joint from your dime bag, maybe two if you don’t mind moderating the joint size a little.

Dub of bud

If you have a little more cash to spare you may wish to buy a dub of bud. The word ‘dub’ is thought (no-one can be 100% sure) to stand for ‘double dime bag’. In other words, twice the size of your standard dime bag.

How many grams of weed is a dub of bud?

2 grams of weed.

How much does a dub of bud cost?

Good question! Typically you would expect to pay around $20 for a dub of bud. But quality conscious dealers often offer high quality dub bags for premium prices, $30 or even more.

What does a dub of bud look like?

Expect a small bag that comfortably fits in the palm of your hand. Usually you get a self sealing transparent plastic bag with enough weed for around 4-5 joints. Usually you will get a couple of buds in your dub bag.

Eighth of bud

An eighth of bud is one of the more common weed amounts to purchase. Buying a dime bag can seem like an expensive way to purchase cannabis. But buying an eighth of bud allows you a little more buying power and perhaps a slightly better value deal

How many grams of weed is an eighth of bud?

3.5 grams of weed, one eighth of an ounce.

How much does an eighth of bud cost?

Prices vary so much even within a single country. An eighth of budget weed would be a lot cheaper than a eighth of premium quality weed in a big city. But for a mid-range ‘eighth’ you might expect to pay around €30/$30/£30.

What does an eighth of bud look like?

You might expect to see about 6 or 7 buds. Some generous dispensaries will upgrade you from 3.5g to a 4g deal for free. For many people, buying an eighth of cannabis is more cost effective than buying 2 or 3 dime bags.

Quarter of bud

A ‘quarter of bud’, or quarter ounce, is one of the larger weed amounts for a personal purchase. Perhaps you like the idea of getting a better value purchase. Or perhaps you simply love your cannabis and enjoy having enough to last you the week.

How many grams of weed is a quarter of bud?

7 grams of weed.

How much does a quarter of bud cost?

Expect to pay around €/£/$50-70 for a mid range deal. Prices can vary greatly of course, with premium buds coming in at higher prices.

What does a quarter of bud look like?

Expect a chunky sized bag that will fit in your palm. You might be able to get around a dozen joints from your quarter, maybe more

Half Ounce or Half a Zip

Many serious cannabis lovers hate to run out of their cherished buds. That’s why many buy in bulk and always have a few spare buds, just in case. A half ‘zip’ is one of the more ‘serious’ purchase quantities.

How many grams of weed is a half ounce?

14 grams of weed.

How much does a half ounce cost?

Much depends, of course. But for a mid range half ounce, you can expect to pay upwards of €/£/$100-125.

What does a half ounce look like?

You can expect a small bag, around the size of a modest bag of potato crisp snacks. If you use around a gram of weed every day or two, then you can expect a half ounce bag to last you around 3 weeks.

Full Ounce or Zip

In many dispensaries, an ounce is the largest amount of weed you are allowed to buy in one transaction. You get the best value when you buy in larger quantities. If you find a high quality strain which you simply love, and if you can afford it, an ounce of weed is a great stash which removes the anxiety of running out.

During the recent COVID-19 pandemic, many cannabis lovers bought (or grew) themselves ample inventories to allow them to get through lock down.

How many grams of weed is a full ounce?

28 grams of weed.

How much does a full ounce cost?

Around €/£/$ 200 for a mid-range quality level.

What does a full ounce look like?

You would need to ‘cup’ your hands to hold an ounce of buds in them. For most serious cannabis users, an ounce of weed would last a month or two. Some people call an ounce of weed a ‘lid’.

Quarter Pound or QP

Few of us ever buy a ‘QP’ or quarter pound of weed. Often it tends to be professional dispensary/coffee-shop owners that buy in wholesale quantities. Often the more professional vendors will have full cannabinoid and terpene analysis available on large purchases, this way you know exactly what you are buying.

How many grams of weed is a full quarter pound?

About 113 grams of weed, or 4 ounces. In many countries possession of such a quantity would be regarded as a serious crime. However, in some USA states, medical marijuana patients can own 3-6 ounces of cannabis.

How much does a full quarter pound cost?

In a legal USA state, you might expect to pay somewhere around $750 for a QP. Over the last few years, as US supply has occasionally exceeded demand, wholesale prices of cannabis have been lower than many of the licensed producers would have liked.

What does a full quarter pound look like?

Expect a large bag of weed! Similar in size to a large family bag of potato crisps or snacks.

How to measure your weed weights easily

When buying from a trusted supplier, it’s customary not to weigh your weed purchases and trust the person selling it. But not everyone agrees! Some people carry a simple set of digital scales around with them so they can double check that they are not being ripped off with their weed weights.

Others, especially those that live in areas with illegal cannabis, are reluctant to travel with a digital (or analogue) set of weighing scales. The concern would be that, if caught, they could be accused of being a cannabis dealer themselves.

Growing your own weed from cannabis seeds is easy and cheap

If the price of weed is restricting your ability to buy and enjoy it, then you may want to consider growing it yourself. The high cost of buying weed is often given as the main reason why people start growing it themselves. Once you have grown your own weed and realised how easy it is, you will feel reluctant to go back to buying it.

If you have never grown cannabis before the easiest way to start is probably with some autoflower seeds. These are easy to grow indoors or outdoors. Indoors, you can grow an autoflower seed in around 10-11 weeks. If you do well you may quite easily get 50-100g per plant. Even with the cost of buying a grow light, tent, extraction fan/filter and nutrients, your first cannabis grow will probably pay for itself.

Growing weed from feminised cannabis seeds is also a straightforward experience with modern cannabis genetics. Indoor growers of feminised seeds just need to reduce daily light hours to 12 in order to induce bloom in a feminised seed variety.

Many people also get great results growing cannabis outdoors or in a greenhouse. You can use either autoflowering cannabis seeds or feminised seeds. Yields can be very high, several hundred grams per plant are quite possible. You can save yourself lots of cash and grow a years supply of cannabis from just a few cannabis seeds.

Time to discover our biggest yielding cannabis strains

If you do decide to grow your own cannabis you will join the millions that already grow their own cannabis around the world. Cannabis is easy to grow. You can buy cannabis seeds easily online and select next day delivery.

Companies like Dutch Passion, which began in the 1980’s, have enjoyed many decades of successful cannabis breeding. During that time they have won numerous cannabis cups and made several breakthroughs. This includes Dutch Passion being the first to invent feminised seeds and the first (alongside the CBD Crew) to sell CBD rich seeds. Recently Dutch Passion became the first cannabis seed company to offer cannabis seeds rich in THCV and CBG.

If you want to grow your own cannabis all you need do is decide which type of cannabis seeds to buy and grow. The following articles may be very useful.

Heavy yielding strains guarantee you a heavy harvest. But you may be a connoisseur that really enjoys an exquisitely enjoyable terpene profile and taste. If so, you may be interesting in trying some particularly fruity tasting strains.

Whether you buy your weed or grow it yourself, make sure you enjoy the best quality you can!

Weed Measurements: The Marijuana Metric System

Source: Greenito.com

Do you tell your budtender just to give you $20, $50, or $100 worth of weed without knowing how much actual medicine you’re getting for your money? Have you ever felt embarrassed when your budtender asks if you want a dub or an eighth because you have no @#!$ing idea what they are talking about?

Does the world stop making sense when your budtender tells you how much an ounce of your favorite strain costs? It’s ok, you’re not alone. We’ve all been there.

Many people who are green to buying grass have felt this way at one point or another. That’s because weed measurements are messed up.

There, we said it! Weed measurements are messed up. Whew, feels good to get that off our chest. Seems like someone should reform this particular speed bump in canna-culture. But, honestly, the marijuana metric system has been around for so long that it’s going to be nearly impossible to change. Better just to get used to it.

That’s why the experts at Honest Marijuana have produced this instructional article—to help you make sense of the various standard amounts that you’ll find in your local dispensary. That way, you don’t have to look like a total newb when you make your first buy. Weed measurements no longer need to be a mystery!

Along the way, we’ll also:

  • Explain all the ganja jargon commonly used among cannabis users in the United States.
  • Break down some regional pot prices by size so you can make sure you’re not getting ripped off by your reefer retailer.
  • Establish some cannabis concentrate conversions so you know roughly how much marijuana it takes to make butter for concentrates, edibles , oil , and tinctures .

If you want to become an expert in marijuana measurement, read this guide from start to finish. If you’ve come here looking for something specific, we’ll help you find it. Follow these links to each section of the article:

And don’t feel bad if you don’t get it all down on the first try. It may take a while to understand all the conversions and jargon. But with a little practice, you’ll be talking like a long-time stoner in no time.

Marijuana Measurement Madness

Most Americans are used to measuring things with the United States’ Customary Units as opposed to the International System of Units , better known as the Metric System.

Indeed, one of the most confusing things about purchasing and consuming cannabis in the United States is that we use a combination of international metrics and US units to describe the quantities of cannabis we use in our everyday lives.

Source: Etsy.com

Ounces and pounds are examples of US Customary Units that we borrowed from the British before General Washington’s hemp-clad continental army won our nation’s independence.

Source: Leafly.com

The gram , a measurement of mass from the International System of Units, originally referred to the weight of a cubic centimeter of water. A gram is now more simply defined as one one-thousandth of a kilogram , which is the current base unit of the international metric system.

The general confusion and vague jargon that every single cannabis consumer has to comprehend in order to keep track of how much medicine they buy and use is the result of the discrepancies between international and U.S. scientific measurement systems.

That’s why weed measurements are so confusing: they are a mix of two different measurement systems. It’s like watching a movie that starts off as a rom-com and then suddenly changes to a horror movie about twenty minutes in. At the end, you’re left scratching your head and wondering what the hell just happened.

But it doesn’t stop there. Even if you understand the whole grams-ounces-pound thing, you still have to contend with the long list of slang terms that have come and gone over the years.

In the next section, we’ll clarify the conversion between grams and ounces and introduce you to the corresponding ganja jargon.

Ganja Jargon for Measuring Weed

Source: Forum.Grasscity.com

There’s a lot of marijuana slang floating around out there. For the most part, though, it all revolves around a few choice terms. Your budtender will typically refer to their Mary Jane by the following names:

  • Dime
  • Dub
  • Eighth
  • Quarter
  • Half
  • Ounce
  • Full O (or just O)
  • Z (yes, just the letter Z)

Here’s the definition of each.

Dime & Dub

A dime bag or a dub sack of weed is stoner slang for $10- or $20-worth of weed respectively. The amount of weed you’ll actually get in exchange for $10-$20 varies wildly depending upon where in the country (or the world) you’re buying your pot.

Eighth, Quarter, Half

The terms Eighth, Quarter, and Half are slang for portions of an ounce of pot. Here are the gram-to-ounce equivalents:

  • An Eighth = 3.5 grams
  • A Quarter = 7 grams
  • A Half = 14 grams

Ounce, Full O, Z

“Ounce” isn’t a slang term, but “Full O” and “Z” certainly are! A Full O (or just O) and a Z refer to a full ounce (or 28 grams) of marijuana. An ounce is also the most marijuana that a resident of Alaska, Colorado, Oregon, and Washington can legally possess in public.

“Full O” is fairly self-explanatory (short for full ounce), but you may be wondering where in the wide weed world the term “Z” came from. As with most cannabis slang , the exact origins of the word are lost in the pot haze of time.

Most long-time stoners agree, though, that they — or their canna-forefathers (and foremothers) — used the term as a sort of code so they didn’t have to say ounce directly.

“Why couldn’t they say ounce?” you ask. Well, remember, not so long ago, weed was lumped together with a host of really nasty drugs like heroin and crack. Most of these were sold in increments that included the ounce.

So, if you were overheard asking to buy an ounce, there was a pretty good chance you were looking to score an illegal substance. Hence the need for a code word like “Z.”

But why “Z” and not “R” or “J” or something else entirely? Again, we don’t know for sure, but the consensus usually falls into one of two camps, with the second being the most common.

  1. “Z” refers to the final letter in the abbreviation for the word ounce (i.e., oz.). Sounds good, right? Still, it does seem like a bit of a stretch. The next explanation feels a lot more likely.
  2. Back in the day, we didn’t have the cool packaging we have now. A glass jar was a bit cumbersome and prone to break should a sky-high stoner drop it or fall down. To avoid this danger, buds and other marijuana products were often sold in plastic baggies. When Ziploc bags came on the market, it was only natural that cannaseurs would use them to keep their weed fresh. And by a stroke of good fortune, an ounce of marijuana would fit nicely (most of the time) in these containers. See where we’re going? So if you wanted to buy an ounce of pot, you could say, “I’d like to purchase a Ziploc baggie of your finest marijuana product, good sir.” Or you could just say, “Gimme a Z, man.” Which would you choose? Yeah, us too.

Homework

We hate homework too, but there’s a reason schools have been doling out take-home assignments since the dawn of time — it works. Practice — though it won’t make perfect — does make better. And that’s all we really care about here: improving the way we buy weed.

One of the best ways to do that — to get a grip on the marijuana metric system — is to measure amounts for yourself at home.

And when you think about it, this type of homework isn’t nearly as bad as memorizing multiplication tables (some of us still can’t remember the product of 8×7) because it involves everyone’s favorite topic: dating Mary Jane.

Plus, we actually suggest that you burn a blunt before tackling this homework and then treat yourself to a pizza when you’re done.

You might even want to incorporate weed measurements into your next toke sesh with friends. Guessing what weighs what would make an entertaining game to play before, during, and after the smoke circle.

But, hey, do what you want. There’re no hard or fast rules for this homework. You won’t even be graded. You will, however, be judged by those around you which can be the harshest grade of all.

What You’ll Need

You will need some supplies for this, so plan accordingly.

  • Food scale
  • Marijuana substitute
  • Seven bowls for separating your stash
  • Measuring spoons (we’re just using these to scoop small amounts so don’t worry about trying to convert from grams our ounces to teaspoons)

Food scales are cheap and easy to find, and you can probably find a suitable model at your local market. As a bonus, once you’re finished practicing your weed measurements, you can use the scale to weigh your food.

Be sure to purchase a model that allows you to switch between ounces and grams.

As for the marijuana substitute, we prefer oregano for its symbolic value in cannabis history and culture.

Honestly, you don’t need a marijuana substitute if you’ve got a lot of the real thing lying around. But be warned, we will be weighing out 4 ounces (¼ pound), so you’ll need at least that much to get through the assignment.

Now you see why we suggest a substitute? A quarter-pound of weed purchased all at one time will run you anywhere from $400 to $800 (check local listings). A quarter-pound of oregano purchased at your local market will run you less than $2. The choice is obvious to us.

Assignment

  1. Set your food scale to grams. If your model doesn’t offer this feature, you’re stuck with ounces. Don’t worry. We’ll make due.
  2. Reset the scale to zero by pressing “tare.”
  3. Scoop or sprinkle a small amount of plant matter (marijuana or equivalent substitute) onto the scale until you reach 0.5 grams (0.017 or 0.018 ounces). It won’t take much.
  4. Dump this amount into one of your seven bowls.
  5. Reset the scale.
  6. Add plant matter to the scale until it read 1 gram (0.035 ounces).
  7. Dump this amount into another bowl.
  8. Compare the two amounts.
  9. These are the most common gram units you’ll find in the marijuana metric system so try and get an eye for their relative size.
  10. Set your food scale to ounces.
  11. Reset to zero.
  12. Scoop plant matter onto your scale until it reads 0.125 ounces (3.5 grams).
  13. This is an eighth of weed.
  14. Dump it into another bowl.
  15. Reset your scale.
  16. Pile on enough plant matter to take the scale to 0.25 ounces (7 grams).
  17. This is a quarter (of an ounce).
  18. Dump it into another bowl.
  19. Reset your scale.
  20. Measure out 0.5 ounces (14 grams).
  21. Dump it into your fifth bowl.
  22. Reset your scale.
  23. Measure out 1.0 ounces (28 grams).
  24. This is, as you might guess, an ounce, an “O”, or a “Z”.
  25. Dump that into your sixth bowl.
  26. Reset your scale.
  27. Now, just for fun, measure out 2.0 ounces (56 grams or ¼ pound).
  28. Dump that into your seventh bowl.
  29. Stand back and visually compare each amount.
  30. Repeat the process for even more practice.

Being able to visually recognize the general size of a pile of weed — even if it’s not exact — makes buying it even easier.

When you think you’ve got the size of each pile in your head, try this test:

  1. Weigh one of your bowls on the scale.
  2. Remove the bowl and reset the scale.
  3. Pick an amount of weed you want to try to measure (let’s say, an eighth of an ounce).
  4. Pour what you think is that amount into the bowl.
  5. Place the bowl on the scale.
  6. Subtract the weight of the bowl from the new reading.
  7. That number is how much plant matter is in the bowl.

Did you get close to the number you were trying to measure? Try it again with another amount.

Endo-Weed Economics

Asking for a dime usually means you are asking for $10-worth of cannabis . This amount of cannabis (often 0.5g) is usually just enough weed to roll into a decent-sized joint. That said, it is becoming increasingly rare to find so-called “ dime-bag dealers ” who will sell such a small amount of sinsemilla .

Source: Quickmeme.com

Asking for a dub usually means you are asking for a full gram of cannabis. One gram of weed is what you’ll typically find in a single blunt or cigar leaf joint. You can expect to pay $20 for a dub of weed in major cities in the Midwest and along the eastern seaboard (Chicago all the way to Boston).

However, Harrison Tesoura Schultz, co-founder of Occupy Weed Street, has paid up to $50 for a single gram of pot from delivery services in New York City.

Anything less than 1.5 grams for $20 was a rip off in Oregon prior to July 8, 2014, when recreational cannabis became available for sale. Now it’s common to get 3.5 grams or “an eighth” of high-quality cannabis for $20 in Oregon.

The cost of an ounce of weed will vary widely according to the quality and popularity of the strain , of course. However, regulating and taxing marijuana drives down the price of pot and helps cannabis consumers save lots of money.

A high-quality ounce of weed typically costs between $200 and $245 where recreational reefer use is legal in California, Colorado, Oregon, and Washington. An ounce of pot costs comparatively more in states where marijuana hasn’t been legalized yet. Cannabis costs close to $300 per ounce in Florida, nearly $360 in New York, and just over $350 per ounce in Illinois, according to priceofweed.com .

The price for an ounce of pot is the basis of the prices for the other common portions of weed that are typically sold. For example, the best deal you’ll find in New York City (a.k.a. the marijuana arrest capital of the world) is $45 for an eighth of an ounce ($360 divided by 8).

You can purchase the same amount of high-quality cannabis for as little as $25 (or less) in certain cities in Oregon.

Purchasing a small electronic scale is the best way to make sure that you’re not paying more than you should be for pot. It’s also the most accurate way to measure your doses of medicinal marijuana. You can get a sense of how much you can expect to pay for pot in your part of the world from priceofweed.com, a global database of crowdsourced cannabis prices.

We highly recommend reporting any really good (and really bad) deals you get on your medicine to that same website. This will help control the market and make the average price of marijuana more affordable.

Cannabis Concentrate Measurements

It’s typical to produce about two to six grams of dabs or butane hash oil ( wax ) from a full ounce, or 28 grams, of ganja. Vaporizable cannabis concentrates can cost anywhere between $20 (if you’re lucky) up to $100 per gram.

An ounce of pot will also produce about three to four grams of the same cannabis oil that Rick Simpson used to save himself and thousands of other medical marijuana patients from terminal cancer.

Colorado residents can buy Rick Simpson oil for $25 dollars a gram from legal dispensaries, such as Caregivers for Life.

You can make way more cannabutter than you would ever want to eat in a single weed edible serving with an ounce of weed depending on how well you can make it.

Most marijuana users make their own cannabutter , but you can buy a 1.5-ounce jar of high-quality cannabutter from top THC chef Julie Dooley for $35-$30 dollars.

An eighth of an ounce of high-quality cannabis produces about 30-34 doses of marijuana tincture if you make it yourself, and a small bottle of about 100 drops costs around $20 dollars.

Making the Marijuana Math Make Sense

Source: Quickmeme.com

Is the marijuana math adding up? You should be able to calculate that Snoop Dogg is smoking not quite three (2.89) ounces of cannabis a day since he says he smokes 81 blunts every day, given that 1 blunt equals about 1 gram and there are 28 grams in one full ounce of marijuana.

It is entirely possible that Snoop has smoked nearly an entire ton of cannabis over the course of his life if we take his estimate as accurate.

Source: Tubmlr.com

The marijuana metric system is a confusing class of Standard International Units and US Customary units. But when you boil it all down, the main cannabis conversion you need to remember is:

  • 1 ounce of weed = 28 grams

From there, it’s pretty easy to decipher the ganja jargon to calculate that “a half” equals 14 grams, “a quarter” equals 7 grams, an eighth equals 3.5 gram, and “a dub” will typically equal one full gram of marijuana.

Once you know how to do the math, you can determine if making your own marijuana concentrates, oils, edibles, and tinctures will help you save on cannabis costs based upon the price of weed in your area.

Make sure to support legalization efforts on behalf of groups such as NORML and the Marijuana Policy Project if you want to help make marijuana increasingly more affordable for yourself and your community.
