How Many Grams in an Eighth of Weed?

How Many Grams in an Eighth?

Learning how to buy weed has its challenges, man. Aside from all the crazy strain names like Green Crack or Trainwreck new stoners face a lot of confusing terms especially when it comes to measuring weed. But don’t let that stop you from buying weed, of course.

Presently, one reason buying weed is so confusing is that weed is bought and sold using both standards and metric units. That makes it really confusing—especially when you’re stoned. You can buy a gram of weed, but you don’t often buy it in kilograms. If you’ve got a lot of weed it’s usually measured in pounds. So if you’re confused, don’t worry. We’ll break it all down for you.

New stoners might come across terms like, dime of weed, gram of weed, dub of weed, loud weed. Wait, what the heck is Loud Weed? Basically it’s a term for really good weed. Thought we’d toss that in there to see if you were paying attention. Anyhow let’s decipher some weed terms and figure it all out so you don’t embarrass yourself buying weed.

What is a gram

So you’re probably asking yourself what’s a gram? Well, the metric system and the imperial system (often referred to as the “standard” system in the United States) are two different systems of measurement. According to the metric system a gram is a unit of mass. It’s equivalent to one one-thousandth of a kilogram. In terms of weight, a gram is approximately equal to 0.035 ounces or 0.0022 pounds.

How many grams are in an eighth? An eighth of weed weighs 3.5 grams. So if you buy eight bags of weed all with an eighth of weed in ‘em (3.5 grams) you’ll have an ounce of weed. Well that’s what your dealer wants you to think.

How many grams are in an ounce of weed? Don’t say 28 because that would be wrong. An ounce actually weighs 28.349523125 grams. It doesn’t matter if you’re weighing loud weed or loud water melons, man. When it comes down to it—an ounce of weed isn’t 28 grams. It’s more. In fact it’s .349 grams more. So don’t get short changed.

How much does a gram of weed cost?

How much is a gram of weed? The price of a gram of weed depends on a lot of different variables. Where you’re buying it for starters. If it’s on the streets in a not-so-weed-friendly area, you’ll probably pay a premium for a gram of marijuana. If you’re looking to buy a gram of weed, particularly some loud and hella popular weed, something like the tasty Cherry Pie strain or the potent Pineapple Express strain at a recreational shop, in weed-saturated Colorado for instance, it’ll probably be a lot cheaper.

It will be even cheaper if that loud weed is considered medical marijuana. That’s because medical pot isn’t taxed at the same exorbitant amount that commercial cannabis is tax. How much does a gram of weed cost in general? Depending on quality a gram of weed will run you anywhere between 10 to 15 bucks. To summarize: how much is a gram of weed? So on average 1 gram of weed cost about \$12.

How much is an 8th of weed?

How much is an 8th of weed? Like as in price? Oh that depends on several things. Like we said above. Where you’re getting your eighth of weed, how good it is, etc. That loud weed, aka dank weed, costs a lot more than shitty weed. You get what you pay for, dude. Anyhow what’s a ballpark figure for an eighth of weed? Oh somewhere between 35 and 60 bucks—depending on location and quality.

How much is a dime of weed?

How much is a dime of weed? A dime of weed will set you back ten bucks. That’s it. No matter the weight a dime of weed is ten bucks. How much does a dime of weed weigh? That depends on where ya get it and the quality. See above. Typically a dime of weed, or a dime bag, will contain about a gram of weed. And a gram of weed is about enough for a single joint.

What’s a dub of weed?

Rather than being about weight, like a dime of weed, a dub of weed is also named after the amount of money it costs to buy it. So a dub of weed, or a double dime of weed, is twenty bucks. Again a dub of weed is not about weight. It’s about price. How much does a dub of weed weigh? Depending on the quality you’ll find much more than a gram of weed in a dub sack—hopefully closer to 2 or 3 grams. Enough to roll at least a couple joints.

How many joints are in an ounce of weed?

Just for fun. How many joints are in an ounce of weed? Let’s say the average joint is the size of a cigarette—for sake of making shit easy. Obviously you’ve seen Chong roll a joint from a pound of weed if not more, but let’s just agree a joint and cigarette weight the same amount. According to Google one cigarette weighs about 0.7 grams. That works out to roughly 40.49929 cigarettes per ounce. So we can safely say that you can roll about 40 joints with an ounce of weed.

How to buy weed for the 1st time

Overall, when it comes to buying weed you probably don’t want to come across as a newb. In a marijuana dispensary that might not be a bad thing. Patient bud tenders are there, getting paid, to explain the difference between an eighth of weed and a gram of weed. The get paid the same amount no matter how long you take to decide. But if you live in a place without dispensaries and you’re facing a dealer who ain’t got all damn day you might want to brush up on your weed terms—especially when it comes to measuring it out. That way you don’t get ripped off and your new dealer won’t think you’re a fool.

Now how much will that cost? Meh. Who cares? Let’s go smoke a bowl…

I live in “weed saturated Colorado” and it’s amazing. The dispensaries are generally clumped together in areas that welcome the business. Generally you either live near half a dozen shops or nowhere near any shops.
If you’re still reading because you play with the idea of moving here for the quality of life legal marijuana can buy you should know you still get tested for pot to get and keep most jobs.
Living here is like living in a world where things really are the way they should be. Colorado isn’t perfect, but it’s enlightened and as beautiful as people say.

2. Dave

I bought 10 grams for like \$100 is that a fair deal? it’s not top shelf chronic but is quite stronger than reggie.

3. Dave

.. oh and i bought it from a friend not a dispensery

4. roberto flores

an eight is a 50 in da streets u can get 3.5 if u wana get ripped of dumasses

5. Austin

Roberto ur wrong ive bought eigths its 3.5 and ive biught them in “the streets”

6. Kaitlyn

I got an ounce for 70 and that’d pretty great cause the quality was amazing.

7. daniel b

8. Erika

When I buy 8ths it be 6 to 7 grams

9. Erika

For The \$40 at that

10. Pamela

Yikes, I get 5g. For \$40 of some homegrown deliciousness

11. Tom

To commenters above, if your getting something like 6-7 grams or 5g like the other person said then your not getting an eighth. 8th is a mathematical term, stands for 1/8 of an ounce obviously. So if when u ask for an eighth u should be getting 3.5 grams. Some dealers are generous & push it up to like 3.75 or something, but anything more & it’s not an eighth. At that point your just buying how ever many grams your getting for whatever price your paying. At \$40 for 6-7 grams it’s obviously can’t be top shelf. U can’t get top shelf at that price even in weed saturated states. Unless your buying weight, like a pound or something. Then the discount u get for buying so much might make it somewhere around \$5 a gram, which would get u 6-7 grams for \$40

12. Tom

Or technically if your getting 6-7 grams for \$40, it’s closer to your getting a quarter for \$40 (obviously if it is 7g’s the. U are getting a quarter). But yeah, not an eighth

13. Grayson Elder

\$50 is the most anyone should pay for an eight , and that would be in a state where it still criminalized.

14. Nick

I’m in Massachusetts and I buy top of the line shit that’s from a guy that grows it not legally I guess but I get like 3 grams for like 40\$ a gram around here usually runs in between 10-15 dollars or if someone is trying to rip you off they charge 20 dollars but I wouldn’t pay 20 for a g an eighth is like 45 to 50 dollars but we don’t really use terms like that around here we usually just ask for like a 40 bag or a 60 bag we usually just see what money we have like say I had 100 dollars I would just ask for a 100 bag so ya that’s how we measure weed in Massachusetts we measure it by the amount of money I guess

15. Michelle

So I’m new to this. How many joints should I be able to get from an eighth of weed?

Shit i get an ounce for 70

17. Ashley

Everyone saying they get this and that like dude said an eighth of good quality runs any from \$50-60 all depends on what ur getting old g, afcan lush, some sour d then yea ur gana pay if ur getting 6-7 gs for \$40-50 bucks then ur getting what u pay for which typically isn’t going b good quality so like dude said if you want an eighth of crib you going to pay 50 to 60 which is worth it if it’s good

18. Rob

From what I understand it’s \$10 a gram. That’s how I look at it because it used to be \$5 a month which is \$5 a gram but now since loud and all this other shit that came out I just go by the highest price of the most regular you know price for weed and generally what everybody is trying to claim that we did anyway so \$10 a gram and 48th which is 3.5 grams it should it should be 35 to 40 bucks now once it becomes a better grade once it gets to that age some dealers do change and take the price of a bit but it’s really no higher than 5060 bucks

I just bought an oz of bubblegum for \$260(from a dispensary in L.A. I know i paid full retail price but i reckon ill make about \$200 profit off it. Gosh you gotta love weed.

20. Rober Flores is a poser

We just said an 8th is 3.5g
I have a scale and know the grower, and I get my from da streets too and I’ve never seen an 8th cost 50. Unless your a dumbass pooossaaayy
