How Many Grams Are in An Ounce of Weed?

Suppose you are looking for a brief answer: It's 28 grams in one ounce of weed. However, if you are calculating the amount of weed you have and the amount you want, there are a few more things to consider. Even though no two cannabis dispensaries would look the same, their measurements are consistently standardized. Let's take a broader look at how weed is measured.

Distributors buy cannabis in larger units, such as kilograms or pounds, and sell to us in a way small units, like grams and ounces. A single pound of cannabis could be broken down into 16 ounces, 32 half-ounces, 129 eighths, or 453 one-gram pre-rolled joints. A dime bag or a gram is the smaller unit for measuring weed.

You may also have heard about the “eighth.” This is an eighth of an ounce, which equals 3.5 grams. It can be used to make three full-gram joints, one half-gram joint, or seven smaller, half-gram joints. An eighth of an ounce of weed is the Goldilocks amount for any average smoker, as it is normally enough to get your mind where you want it to be.

It is recommended to go for smaller amounts of cannabis so you can easily switch to another strain if you don't like the one you have. Here at Bogie, we are happy to Answer any cannabis-related questions you may have!
