Buying Marijuana – Marijuana Weight, Size and Quantity

For those of you new to buying marijuana or selling marijuana you may or may not know this, but for the absolute beginners you probably have no idea of the marijuana sizes that are most commonly sold in the marijuana dispensary or by dealers on the street.

Marijuana Sizes

Marijuana is most commonly sold in increments of grams, ounces and pounds. Knowing the gram conversions from and to ounces is a must if you don’t want to get ripped, because your digital scales is going to weight it in grams, while most people sell marijuana in ounces. The ounces are what most people usually sell and buy marijuana in, because it’s enough to last anything from a couple days to a month depending on the amount someone smokes and the tolerance of the smoker. Pounds are large, large quantities of marijuana so the average smoker probably wouldn’t have to worry about pounds, unless you buy your marijuana in large quantities so you don’t have to buy it very often, and the price is usually lower per ounce, because of buying such large quantities of marijuana.

List of Marijuana Weights (smallest to largest)

Gram - A gram is the smallest amount that you can typically buy marijuana for, it’s enough for a blunt, about $5 of reg bud, but you’re more likely to buy marijuana in grams if it is higher quality marijuana (Ranging from $10-$35 a gram).
Dime Bag - A dime is the next largest amount, usually called dime bags, dime sacks, etc. Essentially it’s $10 worth of weed, depending on where you live and what kind you’re getting it could be slightly more or less. Typically a dime bag of regular weed is 2 grams, I have a friend in NC who about 1.7 grams when he buys a dime, but they usually have slightly better quality weed.
Dub – A dub is $20 worth of weed. Like a Dime bag this can also vary depending upon weed quality and who you know. For regular bud around here it’s 4 grams.
1/8 (Eighth) - An eighth is the smallest marijuana ounce increment that you can buy marijuana in. It is 3.5 grams. An eighth usually provides a couple days of marijuana smoking, if you smoke once or twice a day.
1/4 (Quarter) - A quarter is the next size up, as you progress up in marijuana weights the price usually gets cheaper, so a lot of people buy marijuana in quarters. A quarter is twice as much as an eighth. A quarter is 7.1 grams. It typically lasts about a week or so smoking once a day. Some people refer to quarters as QOs (quarter ounce).
1/2 (Half) - Half is the next level higher and it is twice as much marijuana as a quarter and four times as much marijuana than an eighth. I like to buy in halves because they last long enough to not have to worry about running out of marijuana for awhile. Half ounce is 14.2 grams. Also sometimes referred to as an HO (half ounce).
1 (Ounce) - One ounce is where you start getting in larger quantities of marijuana that also cost more, but you usually get the best deals on halves and ounces when compared to eighths and quarters due to the fact that you’re buying in larger quantities. An ounce is where most people stop progressing up unless they’re planning to not have to buy for 6 months. Ounce can last a month for some smokers who smoke a lot, but if you smoke multiple times a day it will vary from 1 week to 4 weeks. An ounce is 28.3 grams. They are often referred to as O’s, and oz’s.
1/4 ( Quarter Pound) – A quarter pound is a lot of marijuana. It’s the equivalent of four ounces, and will last any smoker awhile. They are referred to as QPs majority of the time, because people who you’re talking to about it know what that means, while others may not have any clue.
1/2 (Half Pound) – Half pound is 8 ounces, and all it takes is simple math to figure out how many grams that is since I’ve told you the gram size per ounce. Referred to as HPs on the street.
1 (Pound) – One pound. A pound is a big ass zip lock bag of marijuana, like the freezer bags. If you have almost a pound you can tell from sight, but it’s hard to eye ball marijuana weights. A pound is 16 ounces.

Eyeballing Marijuana Weight

Some people have relative success in eye balling the bag weight when it comes to smaller and larger sizes, but as the increments get larger or smaller it becomes significantly harder to tell exactly how much marijuana is in there. That’s why you need to invest in a good digital scales, because your marijuana seller could be ripping you off every time you go to him, a gram or two from a dub is a lot and you may not know, he could be doing it all along, so over time it adds up and that’s just extra money going out the door.
For example, which one of these two pictures has more bud:
