Measuring Hemp and Weed: Grams, Eights, Quarters, Ounces
Gram: The gram is the basic unit of measurement for all recreational cannabis and cannabis flower products. With an ounce you buy an eighth, quarter, half or full ounce.
For reference, here is a guide to converting from ounces to grams:
1/8 ounce = 3.5 grams
1/4 ounce = 7 grams
1/2 ounce = 14 grams
1 ounce = 28 grams
Most cheap scales only measure in tenths of a gram, which means that kitchen scales will not weigh your weed or cannabis flower accurately. An analytical scale or jeweler’s scale is precise enough to accurately weigh in grams.
It is important to know that in all measurements the type of bud plays a role in how much it will weigh and how the total amount will look. Not all buds are created equal. Denser buds weigh more and will appear smaller per gram than less dense ones!”

How much is a gram of weed?”
A gram of weed is roughly enough weed to put in several small bowls or roll into several small joints. Most prerolls sold in dispensaries also usually weigh one gram. A gram of weed or a gram of cannabis flower will likely yield a few small to medium-sized buds.
Price: The average price of a gram of weed in the United States is between $8 and $15. However, in other places where marijuana is harder to find, a gram of weed can cost you up to $20. If you go to a dispensary to buy a gram of weed in recreationally legal states, it will cost you about $10 to $15.
How much is 3.5 grams of weed?”
One-eighth of an ounce of weed weighs 3.54 grams. Wherever you buy weed (dispensary or elsewhere), the weight of an eighth is rounded up to 3.5 grams. An eighth contains several small to medium-sized buds. Depending on how much you smoke, an eighth can last you a week or two, especially if you consume some once or twice a day.
Price: The price of an eighth in recreational states varies by state and the quality of the weed. An eighth of marijuana can cost between 30 and 50 dollars for 3.5 grams. In states where recreational marijuana is allowed, you should be able to buy an eighth of a good variety for no more than 40 dollars. By comparison, Plain Jane values 3.5 grams of cannabis flower at $11 to $14.
Is a Quarter Better than an Eight?
It’s been a long time since we studied fractions in math class. Let me explain it for you:
A quarter is 1/4 of an ounce and weighs 7 grams. So yes, a quarter of a flower of grass or hemp is more than an eighth of a flower. It is also very common to buy quarters because it is a practical amount that can last for a few weeks for a moderate user.
A quarter is a larger amount than an eighth. However, it is not necessarily better. If you really want to start saving money, buying a half ounce or an ounce is where the price per gram starts to get better.
How much is a half ounce of weed (14 grams)
A half ounce (1/2 ounce) is 14 grams of cannabis. Significant price differences in terms of price per gram usually start at half an ounce. Half an ounce in dispensaries usually costs between 90 and 160 dollars. Once again, prices are usually higher in areas where there is no legal market.
Half an ounce of CBD equals 14 grams
How Much is an Ounce of Weed? (28 grams)
One ounce of CBD bud
An ounce of cannabis weighs 28 grams. Buying an ounce is the most cost-effective way to buy weed or cannabis flower. In fact, many dispensaries and caregivers offer special deals per ounce.
If you are a daily user of cannabis or cannabis flower, an ounce is the way to go. An ounce of weed will cost you anywhere from $100 to $350, and is usually cheaper in states where recreational marijuana is legal. Always keep in mind that you will pay more for the highest quality strains.
How much is a pound of weed (454 grams)
There are exactly 454 grams in a pound! Very few people buy weed or cannabis flower by the kilo, but we still want to show you what it looks like! Given the legal status of cannabis, distributors take advantage of this to increase the cost of the product. In Colorado, for example, a kilo of weed costs around 1.500 dollars for premium quality. In California, you can find marijuana for $900 a kilo, so it’s cheap in both places.
In both cases, retail customers can’t buy it by the kilo from dispensaries. However, you can buy cannabis flower by the kilo!
How much is ten kilos of weed?
That’s a lot of weed or cannabis flower. Exactly 4,540 grams. What would one person do with 10 kilos of weed? Who knows, but this is what it looks like:
