WHAT IS AN OUNCE OF WEED?

The metric system is used worldwide for measuring everything else, so why not use grams instead of ounces when talking about cannabis? The most common units of measurement for cannabis are grams and ounces. The weight of your average joint is roughly one gram (and about 600 joints can be made from one ounce). It’s confusing that the US uses the imperial system for measuring weed since we use the metric system for literally everything else.

HOW MANY GRAMS IN AN OUNCE OF WEED?

One ounce (1 oz.) of weed is about 28 grams, and is the equivalent of about six eighth-ounce bags of weed. You might have heard of an eighth (1/8), which is about 3.5 grams, or a quarter (1/4), which is about 7 grams.

An ounce of weed contains 28 grams, and one gram is equal to 0.035274 ounces, so a little more than an ounce is needed to measure out 28 grams.

HOW MUCH IS AN OUNCE OF WEED?

Depending on where you live, and how you buy your cannabis, an ounce can cost anywhere from around $100 to $300. Here’s a quick look at some factors that influence the cost of an ounce of weed.

Cannabis has been legalized in 11 states for recreational use and 33 for medical use. In states where cannabis has been legalized, supply has increased and prices have dipped to reflect that increase in supply. In states where it remains illegal, prices are still high because supply isn’t as plentiful as it is in legal states.

In addition to how much THC or CBD is in each strain, there are other qualities that can affect the price of a strain. Does it have a strong flavor? A pleasant aroma? Are the buds big and dense or small and loose? All of these can affect how much you’ll pay for a strain.

If you’re buying from a dispensary, the brand will impact how much your weed costs. Just like with any half ounce product, a company that puts more resources into packaging, marketing, and distribution is going to charge more than a company that doesn’t
