How Many Joints In an Ounce Of Weed?

As of July 1st of this year adults can possess up to an ounce of weed in Oregon. They still have to wait until shops come online in October to by it however. Anyhow, in case you’re wondering what an ounce of weed looks like compared to a donut the Portland Police Bureau recently issued a visual aid. No, we’re not kidding. Oregon cops used voodoo doll donuts near piles of pot to illustrate the amount that’s legal for an individual and a household to possess. They also depicted how much weed would get ya busted. But they didn’t answer the one really important question that’s on every stoner’s mind. Since adults can possess up to an ounce of weed. How many joints is that?

PRO TIP—If you need to weigh your marijuana we recommend Digital Pocket Scale on Amazon for under ten bucks.

How many grams in an ounce of weed?

To determine how many joints are in an ounce of weed, first we should point out how many grams are in an ounce. There are 28 grams of weed to an ounce, right? Well yes and no. Most dealers or as they’re called in the industry—budtenders, will sell you an ounce of weed weighed out to 28 grams, but an ounce actually weighs 28.3495 grams. So you may have been getting shorted. Dude, just imagine how much weed you’d have if you were to add up all those missing .3495 grams of weed from all those eighths you’ve bought over the years.

Okay what were we talking about? Oh ya how many joints are in an ounce of weed. To make this shit easier let’s say the average joint is the size of a cigarette—even though we’ve all seen joints rolled from a pound of weed if not more. And according to Google there’s about 0.7 grams in a typical cigarette. Also according to Google—because our math sucks—that works out to roughly 40.49929 cigarettes per zip—which is probably the amount of joints you can roll from an ounce of weed.

How much is an ounce of weed?

How much does an ounce of weed cost? Well that depends on a number of factors. But it basically comes down to supply and demand, dude. Prices for an ounce of weed are dropping in Colorado. Why? Because marijuana’s legal there, dude and well, because there is a ton of supply in the weed market. According to an analysis by Convergex the average price of an 1/8th ounce of consumer cannabis has dropped from $50-$70 to $30-$45 since last year—ounces sell for between $250 and $300 on average compared to $300-$400. Why the drop? The main reason for cheaper cannabis cited by Convergex is increased competition.

So in Colorado, where weed’s a plenty, an ounce will be cheaper than in a place where it ain’t. Anyhow if you want numbers from us here in Oakland, California—we’ve got ’em for ya. We recently picked up a nice ounce of outdoor weed for $150 from the Harborside Health Center. And we’ve seen people pay more than $425 for some top shelf stuff there as well. So it’s all relative, man.

How much for a half ounce of weed? Sorry, dude, we don’t sell weed—we enjoy it.

    You should get about 18 joints out of an oz! I always pack mine with about 1.5-1.7 grams because I like to take my time when I medicate

  5. Jorge P

    An ounce is about 28.3495 grams and I would roll with 1.7 grams roughly so I would guess about 17 slow burning joints for a great time to relax.

  34. Brandon lillie

    If done right each joint should be at least a gram, if not you’re rollin weak joints, I estimate each dooby

  35. metman

    about 60 for me because I roll about 0.35 grams /joint.
    We always called pinners, “Slim Jims” back in the 50’s.
    And fat boys were called bombers.
    It is also kinda like asking, “how long does an once last?” For me about a month.

  36. metman

    In Washington , i pay about $300 for an ounce because i usually don’t buy imore than 1/2 oz quantity because i like variety of strains. i am on chemo so it really helps with nausea relief and appetite increase. Actually my joints are more mlike 0.3 0 grams/ounce because they are less than 1/2 the size of cigarettes.
    (28g/oz)/(0.3g/joint) = 93.3333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333 jonts/oz approximately!

  37. Coco G

    I don’t use cannabis but I do a lot of research. Based on laboratory averages from what I assume are confiscated joints, the published average is .32 grams. There are 28.34952312500 grams per ounce so the aforementioned number of grams per ounce divided by 0.32=88.59225976563 joints per ounce. That many significant figures are basically meaningless but I entered them all so that you can get very close to how much you might be getting ripped off.
