How Many Blunts in an Ounce?

CANNASaver Blog
Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 21 March 2022 in Canna Blog

Blunts "burn" through a decent amount of weed, so it's best to buy an ounce of weed or more at a time. However, you may be asking yourself, “How many blunts can I make from an ounce of weed?” Just how many blunts equals an ounce of weed? We break down the math:

Marijuana Buds

How Much Weed is in An Ounce?

Well, let’s first discuss what do we mean by an ounce of weed.  

When people refer to one ounce of weed, they refer to cannabis flower or marijuana bud

For cannabis flower, one ounce of weed equals 28 grams (g).   

For our discussion, we will not get into any possession limitations for recreational and/or medical cannabis consumers in different states. Ask your local budtender for more regulations there.    

Before we start our discussion, we want you to know if you’d like to purchase cannabis by the ounce, you can check out some of our great ounce deals and coupons

What Can You Do With An Ounce of Weed?

So, what can you do with 1 ounce of cannabis/weed? 

Well, quite a few things, but let’s start with a blunt first.  

preroll joint

Smoke Blunts

A blunt is similar to a joint, but a blunt is rolled with cigar paper (also called blunt paper). 

This paper is made out of tobacco and gives the user that extra “kick” when smoking.   The tobacco-made wrapping paper helps the blunt burn slower than a joint (discussed below).  There are numerous flavors of blunt paper including different kinds of fruit flavors.  

Most blunts contain anywhere from 1-2 grams of weed, so with one ounce of weed, you could roll anywhere from 14 to 28 blunts.   

If you’re wondering if you could use the entire ounce of cannabis (weed) in one blunt, sure, you can.  You would just have to find the correct cigar paper that would keep the one ounce of weed in place.  You may have to also be creative, with the wrapping.

That's quite the blunt.

Smoke Joints

Classic joints (or pre-rolls) involve rolling white paper, which can now be made of various materials, including hemp, soy, rice, and flaxseed (also referred to as flax). 

There are also clear rolling papers made from plant cellulose.  The benefit of the cellulose paper is the ability to see the cannabis; however, some users claim that it affects the taste of the joint and they can even taste the cellulose.  

There is an obvious difference between a joint and a blunt wrapper, with the latter being brown and much thicker.   

The amount of cannabis in a joint can vary from 0.25 g to 1.5 g, in contrast to a blunt, which usually contains 1-2 grams. 

As you notice, with a blunt and joint, the amount of cannabis can vary, but typically a blunt has more cannabis, even though it is not always the case.    

Let’s say the average joint contains 1 gm of weed; it would allow you to roll 28 joints

If you use 1.5 gm of weed, in each joint, it would allow you to roll about 18 joints, while using ¼ gm of weed, in each joint, would allow you to roll 112 joints; however, I’m not sure who would ever want to roll that many small joints.  We’re just noting that it could be done.     

With one ounce of weed, you can roll quite a few blunts and/or joints. 

Load a Bowl or Two or Fifty

If you do not enjoy rolling, then you can place the one ounce into a bowl.  

The bowl is the part of a pipe or bong (water pipe) that holds the cannabis. 

In bongs, the bowl usually slides out, to allow the chamber to be cleared, while the cannabis smoke is inhaled.

Most pipes are packed ½ gm at a time, so with one ounce of weed, you could pack 56 bowls.   

Vape It

Vaporizers are considered a safer alternative to smoking since the cannabis leaves are not burned; thus, fewer to no carcinogens are produced.  The THC is extracted from the cannabis leaves by heating, and not burning them.  Most vaporizers take ¼ gm to ½ gm of weed. 

So, with one ounce of weed, you could fill and refill a vaporizer 56 times, up to 112 times.

Use It For Edibles

For those of you that don’t enjoy smoking or vaping, edibles are a great way to consume cannabis.  

Cannabis-infused butter or cannabis oils are used to make baked edibles such as brownies and cookies.   

Some people prefer edibles since the “high” sensation that is produced, will last much longer than the high from inhalation.  The “high” produced from edibles peaks at about 2 hours and can last up to 24 hours; in contrast to the “high” from inhaled cannabis that usually peaks at 10 minutes and lasts 1-3 hours 

To get high from edibles, the cannabis flower needs to be heated and placed into butter (decarboxylation).  The heating of the cannabis, and dissolving into the butter, is required to release the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the main component of cannabis, that gives you the “high” feeling.   

The amount of cannabis used to make edibles is based on mg of THC, with 10 mg being the usual dose.  To calculate this dose we require the percentage of THC in the cannabis. 

Some low potency cannabis contains 10% THC, while more potent strains can contain 20% THC.  If you do the calculations, milligrams (mg) of cannabis must be used. With 1 gm of cannabis flower, there is 1000 mg, with 10% THC, that would be 100 mg of THC.  That 100 mg of THC supplies 10 edibles, at the typical edible dose of 10 mg THC each; thus, 1 ounce of flower, could produce 280 typical edibles. 

But please note, that many "bakers" use varying amounts of THC when making different products, so these numbers can vary.   

As you see, there are quite a few ways that you can use 1 ounce of weed.  Don’t forget to check out our special deals on ounces of cannabis.
