Grams In An Ounce
In all recreational cannabis products, the gram is the basic unit of measurement. Whether it’s the milligrams (mg) of THC or CBD in a gummy, the grams (g) of concentrates for dabbing, or any deal on flower, the gram rules the day at your favourite Canadian online dispensary.
You likely worked off the eighth system unless you were already familiar with it, or you had a scale you used to determine the dealer’s accuracy.
Grams In An Eighths
Eighths are within in quarters, halves, and whole ounces as in one eighth of an ounce. Therefore, many people are unaware that an eighth weighs 3.5437 grams. Because most scales measure in tenths of grams, dealers round down to 3.5 grams out of necessity (and mathematical convenience).
Considering the amount of weed in 0.04 grams, it is really nothing. In the long run, rounded down figures start adding up! Check this out.
The conversion scale for an eighth is 3.5 grams, a quarter is 7 grams. It gets easier after that, will there be an ounce in 100 grams? In other words, 28 grams make up an ounce, since an ounce has eight eighths.
If the original eighth hadn’t been rounded to 3.5, it would have been different. The actual weight is 28.35 grams. What happened to that extra .35 grams? That’s easily enough for a good bowl pack, if not a personal joint. (A joint contains an average of .4-.5 grams of flower.)
How many Grams are in an Ounce
There is no insignificant amount of weed in one ounce as it’s 28 grams in total. The average smoker can cover the consumption of cannabis for two weeks with an eighth, so an ounce is more than enough to satisfy their needs for months. It is often more practical to purchase about 1/4 to 1/2 ounces. This is what those conversions look like.
- 1 quarter oz. = 7 grams
- 1 half oz. = 14 grams
- 3/4 oz. = 21 grams
- 1 quarter oz. = 28 grams
As you adjust to recreational sales, this scale is an invaluable tool. You’d walk out with just under a quarter ounce of weed if you bought two grams each of a hybrid, indica, and sativa strain. Blue Dream can be purchased in four grams if it’s grown organically, without pesticides, and pesticides aren’t used. I’m sure you get what I mean.
Autonomy is one of the most important factors in a successful cannabis purchase. This is what makes legal weed from your local dispensary such a revelation for people who are used to buying weed illicitly. Customers are increasingly in control of the buying experience, not bound by the idiosyncrasies of a dealer.
By buying by the gram, you’re able to browse a wide selection of strains, edibles, and other cannabis products in addition to an eighth of whatever flavors the dealer happens to have.
