So you’ve walked into your local dispensary and are ready to buy some cannabis. You know what strain you like and how much THC you want, but there’s a problem: you have no idea how much weed is in the bag.
HOW MANY GRAMS ARE IN EIGHTH OF WEED?
There are 28 grams in an ounce of cannabis flower. That might not sound like a ton, but it’s enough that one ounce can be divided up into many smaller units with different names. If you’ve ever heard someone say they bought a “half ounce” or an “quarter” they were talking about a certain amount of marijuana.
The most common unit of measurement is the eighth (1/8th), which is equal to 3.5 grams of product. This sounds simple, right? But it gets confusing once you realize that an eighth of cannabis isn’t actually 3.5 grams. It’s the closest gram weight that a dispensary has available to sell.
|GRAMS TO POUNDS||GRAMS TO OUNCES||UNIT OF MEASUREMENT|
|2/1000 POUND||1/2 OUNCE (0.49383546729 oz.)||14 GRAMS|
|1 OUNCE (0.98767093459 oz.)||28 GRAMS|
|2 OUNCES (2.0106158311 oz.)||57 GRAMS|
|1/4 POUND||4 OUNCES (3.9859577003 oz.)||113 GRAMS|
|6 OUNCES (7.93664 oz.)||170 GRAMS|
|1/2 POUND||8 OUNCES (7.9366414387 oz.)||227 GRAMS|
|1 POUND||16 OUNCES (16.014378725)||454 GRAMS|
|2 POUNDS||32 OUNCES (32.02875745 oz.)||908 GRAMS|
HOW MUCH IS AN EIGHTH OF WEED?
It depends on where you live!
An eighth of weed is equivalent to 3.5 grams or 1/8 of an ounce. But different states have different prices for cannabis products—and the cost of weed will be different depending on your location, local laws, and market conditions. The average price for an eighth ranges from $25-$50. But keep in mind that this can vary on the quality of the strain.
If you’re looking for an eighth of weed, you can find it pretty easily at any marijuana dispensary. You do need to be 21 to buy cannabis products and only in states where it’s legal (check this link for more information). But if you’re lucky enough to live in a place where cannabis is legal, you can get ahold of some—just don’t smoke it in public!
