Cannabis is bought and sold by the weight, so no wonder you are keen to find out how many grams is an eighth of weed. Most cannabis enthusiasts use the metric scale as the standard unit for weighing the buds and newbies need to get acquainted with the math if they plan to have cannabis in their lifestyle.

Being unable to discern and differentiate a few grams over an ounce of cannabis can be very beneficial to you as a consumer and enthusiast.

Entering a dispensary and shopping without a bit of knowledge on how much you’re getting is clearly a bad idea and will probably result in sellers swindling money from you.

In this article, we will assist you in answering the questions on how many grams there are in an eighth and for you to be able to use that information to measure your weights without giving it a second thought.

First-time cannabis users, especially the rookie buyers might somewhat find buying cannabis confusing. These people might not even know how the measurement works or if they are paying the right amount for their cannabis products.

Fortunately, if you get the whole grasps of measuring and converting the measurements, the whole ordeal will be quite easy.

As a shopper, we will always expect to get the most for our money but with slang words like dume, lid, dub, O, and a lot of others, might make you think that buying cannabis is complicated.

Even more, these jargons might confuse and dissuade newbie buyers from choosing just the right amount of cannabis for their personal consumption.

Problems will stack even more if these buyers are ashamed or reluctant to ask the dispensary staff or when they have no close friends that have prior knowledge regarding cannabis shopping.

The first thing these people need to do is eliminate that stereotype. More people need to appreciate and acknowledge that more places have already legalized cannabis and more locations are planning to decriminalize the substance sooner or later. They just need to remove their personal negative perceptions about cannabis.

To make a standard joint, half a gram to a gram of cannabis is usually used.  Nowadays, it is harder to find street sellers selling in small quantities. The most common selling unit is an ounce. Prices usually depend on the status of the cannabis grown in the state. If you are lucky enough to live in a state where cannabis is legal, you can easily get cannabis by the grams in dispensaries. 

Dispensaries almost always offer concentrates along with the raw buds. Concentrates are much more potent and a little amount is enough to get a person high. One ounce or 28 grams of raw cannabis buds is roughly equal to two grams of cannabis concentrate.

However, the price of a cannabis concentrate is much higher than the cost of buds, reaching up to about $100 per gram, depending on your location and source.

30 to 34 drops from tinctures, on the other hand, is already equivalent to an eighth of an ounce of cannabis. Usually, a bottle with approximately 100 drops costs around $20.
