Cannabis is normally sold in preset amounts at local provisioning centers. The most popular wieghts are grams, eighths (1/8), quarters (1/4), half ounces (1/2) or an ounce.
When your bud tender asks one of their more popular question, "How much cannabis would you like?", the response they are expecting is based on an ounce, or 28 grams. Often times prices listed online, or at the counter, are in single grams, 1/8th's or 1/4's of an ounce.
So what does that really mean? Here are some helpful cannabis weights, measurements and coversions that you'll want to know for your next visit to your local cannabis provisioning center.
|Note: because cannabis is available in a variety of densities, the way a set weight looks can vary.|
|Pre-Roll||.5 Gram - 1 Gram||28 - 56|
|Half Gram||0.5 Gram||56 (1/2 Grams in Ounce)|
|One Gram||1 Gram||28 Grams in an Ounce|
|Eighth Ounce||3.5 Grams in 1/8 ounce of cannabis (Eighth)||8 Eighths (1/8) in an Ounce|
|Quarter Ounce||7 Grams in 1/4 ounce of cannabis (Quarter)||4 Quarters (1/4) in an Ounce|
|Half Ounce||14 Grams in 1/2 ounce of cannabis (Half)||2 Half's (1/2) in an Ounce|
|One Ounce||28 Grams in an ounce of cannabis (Ounce)||1 in an Ounce|
|Fat Ounce||30 Grams in a fat ounce of cannabis||1 Ounce + 2 Grams|
The size of your joint, hand pipe, bowl and amount of times per day you use will determine how long your cannabis will last. Many long time users tend to roll larger joints or use larger pipes and smoke more, so for those folks the scale may be skewed. Many times when you are with others alot more tends to get stuffed in a rolling paper.
