A gram, an eighth, an ounce–what does it all mean? We’ve all been there at one point. Attempting to make sense of the names associated with different cannabis quantities can be challenging. Central to the confusion is conceptualization of weight, which depends on both product size and density.
If you are new to cannabis, we hope this video and visual guide will provide you with a general framework to wrap your head around the common sale quantities for both flower and concentrates. Keep in mind that these depictions are approximations, given that density varies (at times drastically) between products.
For reference, here is a quick conversion guide from ounces to grams.
1/8 ounce = 3.5 grams
1/4 ounce = 7 grams
1/2 ounce = 14 grams
1 ounce = 28.35 grams
