The world of cannabis is one where information is of the utmost importance as it ensures seamless communication and transaction between buyers and sellers which is why it is of paramount importance that we’re all well informed on the most basic and the latest developments in the industry. And key among the basics we all should know about are the weed quantities that are commonly available in the market as well as the slangs and terms that are used for them. The knowledge of this isn’t just very important in fostering communication it also ensures that buyers get adequate value for their money with respect to general markets in other places as well.
A detailed breakdown of weed quantities
Weed is generally measured in the context of an ounce and the other measurements are derivatives of the ounce to afford for varying quantities depending on the amount of weed desired and the amount the buyer can afford per time. Quantities such as the Gram, Eighth, Quarter, Half Ounce can all be explained with respect to their mathematical relationship with the ounce, the financial implications as the size increase as well as the projected number of joints that can be reached in those quantities. These quantities also have varying slangs that are used for them across different societies. This is why it is important to carefully assess these quantities one after the other to have proper knowledge of what they mean and how they can better aid your day to day transactions in the cannabis market.
One gram is the smallest quantity of weed that is readily available which also makes it the lowest in terms of the amount for which it is offered. One gram is the equivalent of one-twenty eighth of an ounce and depending on the weight of the buds in context can easily be equated to one small dense bud. One gram of weed can easily produce 1 or 2 joints which however depends on how you roll the joints. The size of one gram of weed can easily be equated to about the size of a grape. One gram is commonly referred to as the dime bag in various region in the United States with a common price of $10 which can be higher depending on the market. It is called “a stick” in Australia and New Zealand and “a tinger” in the UK.
The next common measurement after the gram is the Eighth which is a substantial step up from one gram. An eighth is one-eighth of an ounce and since an ounce of weed is equivalent to 28.35g, an eighth is equal to 3.5g of weed. An eighth offers more weed for a better price in comparison to buying one gram repeatedly. An eighth can be equated to 3 dense buds of weed depending on the size of the bud and can easily account for 3 to 4 joints depending on how the users roll. The size of one-eighth of weed can easily be equated to about the size of a kiwi. It is commonly used in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the UK. An eighth is also commonly referred to as half a quarter, a slice, or a cut.
Much like the eighth, a quarter is also a derivative quantity of an ounce, and the trend of an increase in size proving economical with an increase in the equivalent number of available joints readily applies here too. A quarter is equal to one-quarter of an ounce which in turn equals 7g of weed. The 7g of weed, in turn, accounts for 7-8 dense buds of weed which can amount in 12-15 joints depending on how the user rolls as well as packing for those using glassware. The size of a quarter of weed can easily be equated to about the size of an apple. A quarter is quite long-lasting and will easily ensure proper value for money is provided. The quarter is commonly referred to as a quad and is common to the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the UK.
As the name suggests, half-ounce is equivalent to 14g which is equal to half of the 28.35g equivalence of an ounce. Much like the earlier derivatives of the ounce, half-ounce provides a ready increase in terms of value with respect to the amount over the eighth and the quarter as the 14g of weed that is available in one half-ounce is capable to produce 30 or more joints depending on how the joints are being rolled the user. This makes the half-ounce a very eye-catching quantity for someone who is looking to get the best value for money and with a common market value of $100 to $120 depending on varying markets. The size of half an ounce of weed can also be equated to about the size of a grapefruit. It is also commonly referred to as Half O or Half Zip.
The ounce as earlier expressed remains the highest measuring tender with respect to legally available quantities of weed. One full ounce offers a considerably large number of joints and ultimately provides a long-lasting and fulfilling experience that cannot be experienced with the other derivatives. One full ounce depending on the smoker and the way it is being rolled can easily serve the user for a considerable number of months. An ounce is commonly called an ‘O’ or a ‘zip’ in many common markets. The size of an ounce of weed is equaled to about the size of a coconut.
