Buying marijuana for medical use can be quite difficult, if you don’t understand the difference between the weights. As marijuana is sold for medical purposes, it is also sold in regulated weight units just like any other prescription drug, which can be quite difficult to understand for a layman. You need to know, how many grams in an eighth of an ounce are there, if you wish to use it as a cure, or else you might end up doing more damage to yourself then good.
So, how many grams in an eighth?
Understanding these units is easy. Eighth or 1/8 weed has one eighth of an ounce in it or 3.5 grams. This is one of the main units used to sell and buy the weed. Though it is not the only one, you can also buy cannabis in other units, like ‘Dime’ which can cost you anything around 10$ and the weight for one Dime is approximately one gram of weed. Another commonly used unit is ‘Dub’ which is available in around 20$ and should weigh approximately 2 grams. Then the smaller unit or another commonly used unit is Tenth which weigh around 1.25 grams, enough to make 2 joints or maybe 3 bowls.
The bigger units are Quarter, which is one forth of an ounce or seven grams. Then comes ‘half’ which should weigh around half an ounce or a 14 grams. Another of such bigger units is ‘Z’ or ‘O’ that simply weigh one ounce or 28 grams. The largest denomination used outside the industrial usage is ‘Lid’ which weigh twenty one grams. It is needless to say that these bigger units cost much more then the smaller denominations, bigger the unit you want to buy more you will have to pay.
It is also advised that, if you are using marijuana for medical purposes, then you should be sure about the dosage.
