One Gram is the smallest unit of measurement to buy weed. Why we use the metric system to measure it? Beats me. Maybe cus it’s easier to say 1 gram instead of 1 twenty-eighths. A single gram is usually priced at $10, hence the nickname “Dime Bag”.
The trusty ol’ Eighth, or one-eighth of an ounce, measures out to about 3.5 grams.
One time I bought weed and asked for 2 eighths and the guy looked at me and was like, “You mean a quarter?”. I thought I was good at math but my brain couldn’t wrap my head around it. A quarter weighs out to approx 7 grams, or 2 eighths.
A half ounce measures out to approx 14 grams, or 4 eighths.
An ounce, or “Zip”, measures out to approx 28 grams, or 8 eighths. But never ask for 8 eighths.
A Quarter Pound, or QP, weighs out to 4 ounces.
How many ounces are in a pound? A wopping 16 ounces, or 453 grams. That’s a lot of weed!
