HOW MANY GRAMS ARE IN HALF OUNCE OF WEED?

But don’t let that scare you! If you want to know how much weed is in a half ounce, read on for all your questions about half-ounce weed measurements answered!

One gram of cannabis (flower) is equal to 0.035274 ounces. So, half an ounce would be around 14 grams.

An ounce is a unit of measurement that equals 28 grams. Once you know this, it’s easy to break down how many grams there are in other amounts. For example, half an ounce is half as much as an ounce, which means it’s 14 grams (half of 28). A quarter ounce is another way to write 7 grams (one-fourth of 28).

HOW MUCH IS A HALF OUNCE OF WEED?

It’s also important to consider what kind of weed you’re buying—some strains are more potent than others and last longer, so there is no one-size-fits-all answer when it comes to a half-ounce of marijuana.

If you’re new to purchasing cannabis, you might find the different measurements confusing. In addition to the half-ounce weed bag, there are also one-ounce bags, quarter-ounce, and the smallest of all: gram bags.

Let’s start with how much money you want to spend. If your budget is limited, and you don’t need too much cannabis on hand at any one time, then paying $25-50 for an eighth of weed ($50-100 per ounce) probably isn’t a good choice. However, if your budget allows for occasional splurges on more expensive marijuana (up to $350 per ounce), then paying $75+ per eighth ($400+ per ounce) might make sense.
