Mission: To provide superior quality chiropractic care and education to my patients to help them achieve and maintain good health. You’ve selected your flower and the budtender asks, “How much you would like, an eighth, maybe a quarter?” If you’re not already familiar with cannabis weights, you might be wondering “how much is an eighth? How much is a gram?” Marijuana dispensaries and delivery services weigh cannabis products such as flower and concentrates in grams. Concentrates can be purchased in half-grams and full grams, while cannabis flower is measured in grams. Let’s start with the basics: What is a gram, and how much is it exactly? One gram , sometimes called a dime-bag or dub, is the perfect amount for cannabis consumers who prefer to smoke out of a handpiece, bong, or joint. When purchasing cannabis from a dispensary, an eighth is the most common form of marijuana measurement. In the cannabis marketplace, an eighth is 3.5 grams. The term eighth refers to the fact that it is an eighth of an ounce, but those savvy with measurements know one-eighth of an ounce is actually 3.543603875 grams. With an eighth of weed, you’ll be able to roll two to three blunts or a handful of joints. Eighths are also known as a half-quarter or a slice . A quarter-ounce of marijuana is enough for five to seven blunts and an arsenal of joints. This quantity is also referred to as a half or half “O.” With a half-ounce, you can roll between 7 and 14 blunts. An ounce weighs in at 28 grams, equating to four quarters or eight eighths. Ounces are also referred to by other names like a zip or an “O.” The possession limits for most states and countries are cited in grams and ounces. Some states and countries place restrictions on how much weed you can possess at a given time and how much you can purchase per month. A quarter-pound is 113.4 grams, which also equals 4 ounces. The next step up from the quarter-pound is a half-pound.
Weighing at 226.8 grams, a half-pound, or 8 ounces of cannabis is also known as half-pack and half-pounder . 1 pound is equivalent to 453 grams or 16 ounces, enough to put a dent in the bank account. A pound can cost up to $3,000 and can be called a pack or an elbow . Have you ever seen or heard the term “5-gram eighth” and wondered what it means? We just identified eighths as 3.5 grams so how can dispensaries rewrite the metric system and declare eighths to equal 5 grams? Five-gram eighths describe the price point for the amount of cannabis. For instance, a customer who selects a 5-gram eighth will receive 5 grams of cannabis for the price of the strain’s eighth.
Any “eighth” that’s more than 3.5 grams is basically describing bonus weed. Every country except Burma, Liberia, and the United States uses the metric system. With different units of measurements around the globe, how do other countries weigh their weed if they’re on a different system?
