Frenchy Cannoli

Frenchy Cannoli is gone. And with his passing, a gaping hole left behind in the cannabis community. Born in France is 1956, Frenchy traveled the world learning the art form of hashish of which he shared openly. His journeys took him to such hash-meccas as India, Thailand, Japan, and the Philippines where he studied and perfected their traditional extraction methods. A guru in every right, Frenchy humbly claimed there will always be more to know about this ancient art, & was ever a student of the plant. Complications from surgery he underwent on 7/18 have been cited as the cause of his death. He was only 64.

Vaping vs. Smoking

Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 28 June 2021 in Canna Blog

By now, I’m sure you’ve heard of vaping or are vaping as you read this. If not, you’re wondering, what is vaping? Vaping is often seen as the modern alternative to actually burning a bowl. Being a relatively new marijuana byproduct, vaping vs smoking marijuana has become an interesting topic between canna-connoisseurs and newbies alike.

Going head-to-head, we are going to look at the methods of cannabis consumption and decide which is better – Vaping or Smoking? 

vaping vs smoking

The Device Known As A Vaporizer

Vaping has risen high above the clouds in which they were formed, providing a superhero high compared to regular marijuana flower smoking. 

Vaporizers are known as the most efficient way to smoke marijuana. Vaporizing cannabis works by heating THC to a temperature between 250-400 degrees Fahrenheit which creates the titular vapor by creating high concentration cannabinoid steam.

Vaping is an amazing way to enjoy your favorite cannabis with little-to-no smell. 

The Volcano continues to reign supreme as far as dry herb vaporizers are concerned. Though initially expensive (between $250-600), it will help you get the most out of smoking your weed with the ability to re-burn vaped weed a couple of different times. These things also last a long time. 

If you're on a budget, there are plenty of vaporizer accessories and vape deals available through our website.

Vaping vs Smoking: Which Gets You Higher?

Recent studies have found that vaporizing your favorite marijuana does factually provide a grander high than smoking.

People who the studies followed had their health monitored such as blood drawn, blood pressure monitored, and heart rate monitored during different smoke sessions. When vaporized, marijuana can produce grander overall effects than smoked marijuana. Vaping has been reported to make people feel much higher than smoking regularly. 

Dosage for dosage, cannabis buds when smoked doesn’t compare to vaping.  

Vaping vs Smoking: Health Benefits

Though vaping is technically “healthier”, eating edibles is the only true way to consume marijuana without resulting in any bodily damage. Well-built vaporizers are designed to maintain that vapor only passes through materials like quartz or ceramic. They avoid plastics, glues, or rubber near vape heating elements.

Many medical patients have problematic respiratory systems and their lungs may be highly irritated by smoke, so they often find relief in vapor inhalation. 

Disadvantages of Vaping

  • Bit of a learning curve: adjusting settings, general maintenance, and learning about proper temperatures. These can be trickier for older folks due to the curve so discretion is advised. If you are not inclined to learn about a new device, it may be best to stay away.

  • There are concerns about random devices on the market. Do lots of device research and try to stick with well-received brands.

  • Inhalation of smoke of any kind into your body isn’t necessarily good for your lungs. Smoke still contains particles that can create lung issues. 

  • Long-term effects in terms of vaping are still pretty darn new. Long-term effects associated with vaping in any way are yet unknown. Black market/ street dealers don’t always sell up-to-par cartridges. These cartridges are often known as the vapes that killed people containing vitamin E and propylene glycol. 

  • You possibly might get way too high.  Just like with smoking, it is possible to get way too high if you vape too much, which can be incredibly off-putting when wanting a good cannabis experience. Go slow

Smoking vs Vaping: Effects on Lungs

Novice consumers also tend to prefer vaporizing because the vapor can be inhaled in short puffs rather than deep breaths. Additionally, people appreciate the added benefit that it is more discreet to use a vaporizer.

Even though vaping may be considered better for you, whether it be weed, tobacco, or any other smoking substance, inhaling smoke of any kind is bad for your lung health.

The ugly truth about our precious cannabis flower comes in the method needed to activate the glorious THC: Combustion. 

When sparking up a bowl of glorious green flower, many stoners have experienced you tend to cough up unwanted inner mucus. Smoke tends to be harsher than a hit from a vaping device.

Vaping: Pros Vs Cons

The PROS

  • Discreet: One of the most appealing aspects of vaping marijuana is that it doesn’t produce as much of an odor, especially at lower temps. In addition, vaping smells a lot less than smoke, so it’s a smart option if you’re trying to fly high under the radar.

  • More pronounced flavor: Vaping typically produces a more pronounced flavor than smoking. You taste the individual terpenes and cannabinoid profiles of each strain more distinctly, whereas smoking obliterates the taste and subtle nuances between strains. But, keep in mind that the flavor will significantly diminish towards the end of the sessions.

  • Control over temperature: Most weed vaporizers have adjustable heat settings that give you control over the temperature throughout your session. It takes a bit of trial and error to find the best temperature for vaping weed but it can produce a range of effects from mellow and uplifting to a more intense euphoric experience.

  • Efficiency: Vaporizing weed allows you to extract the cannabinoids from your dry herb slowly and effectively. You can often get multiple sessions from a single pack. Already vaped bud, or ABV, can also be used to create edibles and tea, or even as an emergency smoke or vape. On the other hand, when you combust weed, it turns to ash and is no longer valuable or even a thing.

  • No lighter/matches required: Vaporizers don’t require an external heat source, so you’ll never have an incident where you’re stranded with weed and no lighter. 

The CONS

  • The learning curve: Unlike smoking, there is a significant learning curve with vaping cannabis. It takes experience to learn how to vape weed properly, getting the right grind and pack, learning to adjust the settings, and how to inhale from your device.

  • Requires general maintenance: Vaping marijuana requires a bit of maintenance versus smoking it. Keeping your vaporizer clean and in top shape is essential to its performance. After every few sessions, it is imperative that you clean your vape — but this is similar to having glassware.

  • Typically requires a grinder: Most vaporizers don’t function properly without a medium to fine grind. This calls for a good grinder, especially if you’re using a portable vape that runs on conduction heating (which the vast majority do). Grinding increases surface area and allows all of the cannabinoids and terpenes to be extracted from the plant more efficiently.

  • Not cheap: A solid device for vaporizing cannabis isn’t cheap. There are a few decent inexpensive vapes out there, but they typically run upwards of $100. Luckily, they save you money in the long since vaporization is a more efficient method.

  • The device MUST be charged or plugged in: You won’t need a lighter, but if your device isn’t charged or near a wall socket, then you’re out of luck. The good news is that when it is fully charged, most portable vapes can provide several sessions before needing a recharge.

smoking weed

Smoking: Pros Vs Cons

The PROS

  • Smoking is a ritual: The entire process of rolling, packing, smoking can become almost ritualistic at times. It can be difficult for some to break this routine.

  • More intense effects: Smoking dry herb can more quickly create intense and euphoric effects. The extreme temperatures of fire immediately release all of the cannabinoids responsible for this more sedative effect such as THC in addition to THCv.

  • Standard investment required: Smoking doesn’t require as much of an investment upfront unless you are buying a big fancy glass piece. It’s so much cheaper to just buy some rolling papers, which prevents a lot of smokers from delving into vaping.

  • No learning curve: Smoking is simple and doesn’t require a lot of practice. Anyone can light up a joint or bowl, and it’s easy to know when your session is over. Vaping pot is more complex and requires a bit of experience and knowledge.

  • Low maintenance: There is some general maintenance involved with pipes or bowls, but they typically don’t require as much effort as cleaning a vaporizer. Joints, on the other hand, are relatively low maintenance, aside from having to roll them.

The CONS

  • Risks associated with combustion: The reality is, although weed smoke is said to be less harmful than tobacco smoke, it’s still smoke! There is a common misconception that although smoking tobacco is bad for you, smoking marijuana isn’t. When any plant matter is combusted it produces tar, carcinogens, and other by-products like toluene, naphthalene, and benzene. This is an unavoidable consequence of smoking, not to mention the hazards of second-hand smoke and using an open flame.

  • Less control: There isn’t much you can do to control the effects of smoking. You can find a strain with less THC, take smaller puffs, or roll your joint a little tighter, but that’s about it. Vaping gives you a lot more control over the overall experience.

  • Not as efficient: Smokers tend to burn through their stash quicker than people who vape it. Once you smoke a joint or a bowl, it’s gone. When you vape it, the herb is cooked much slower, giving you more opportunity to extract every last drop of THC.

  • Stronger odor: Smoke can be detected from much further away and it lingers for longer than vapor. It’s not even close! When you vape weed, it has an aroma, but it doesn’t have the same burnt smell and it dissipates quicker, especially after airing out the room.

The Verdict?

The winner… well, that’s up to you, really. It's all personal preference.

If you’re looking for a safer, discreet way to smoke, or if you are a medicinal marijuana patient, vaping might be best for you. But, if you seek to get completely blazed, smoking is a cheaper route.

Ultimately, the choice is yours my dear friend, but keep an open mind and if you haven’t tried vaping weed, try it.

You may enjoy it.

The differences between vaping vs. smoking marijuana can be night and day.

Wax Dabs

Posted by CANNASaver on Thursday, 24 June 2021 in Canna Blog

Cannabis concentrates are becoming a staple to the marijuana industry. With marijuana use increasing around the country, more people are aware of “dabbing” or “dabs” With 7/10 around the corner to celebrate marijuana’s “OIL” products such as wax, shatter,  hash oil, and live resin. Whether you're a newer consumer or an old-school consumer being introduced to the term dabbing, you may have questions.

Dabs come in several different sizes, shapes, and ultimately, forms. Dabbing can reference many kinds of THC concentrates; from shatter to live resin. But today, we’re going to look at my favorite concentrate known as a wax dab.  

wax dabs

The Titular DAB

A dab can essentially be seen as the measurement to which people dose out their marijuana concentrates. Depending on their consistency, these marijuana concentrates are also commonly referred to as wax, shatter, live resin, etc. These kinds of concentrates are heated on a hot surface, a banger/e-nail, and then inhaled through a bong-like device known as a dab rig. The term has been used for about a decade or so. 

Dabs are made by pouring butane over marijuana. This process allows the THC to leave the marijuana plant and dissolve into the butane leaving a gummy, somewhat solid product that contains high amounts of THC.

What is This?! Wax Made From Bees?!

Wax, despite its name, is not made from beeswax. This type of marijuana gets its name from the concentrate’s texture and appearance. Varying between being relatively gooey being incredibly brittle; wax has an opaque appearance that appears throughout.

Depending on moisture, temperature, and techniques used to extract wax; the concentrate can take on many different forms in the outcome. When the wax is a gooier wax, that tends to be a budder. The other end of that breeds consistencies like crumble.

sugar wax

Different Types of Wax

BHO - Butane Hash Oil, extracts various cannabinoids. Extracting wax, using BHO, is a way to cultivate leftover parts on the marijuana plant remaining after trimming; like leaves or stems. This is why it's cheaper and easier to find.

BUDDER - Considered the cleanest and most wanted wax concentrate. Budder closely resembles butter you would put on toast. Budder is smooth in texture and a highly potent concentrate often hitting 90% THC potencies.  The process is a difficult one due to the process requiring strenuous whipping during the extraction process.

CO2 - solvent-free and tends to be pricey. Produced without toxins, while retaining terpene flavors. Extraction is pricey due to needing specialized equipment. But delivers in terpenes and cannabinoids.

CRUMBLE - Crumble is made from BHO. Crumble is made during the process of purging oil in a large vacuum oven. In the process, the extraction develops a soft consistency but maintains an extremely brittle consistency which can crumble when being prepared. Crumble is a favorite for vaporizers.

PHO - Propane Hash Oil, is an extraction method using propane instead of butane. Everything else is pretty much the same. Some people prefer it because it can be made into a pretty good budder (kind of creamy/buttery concentrate) with vigorous whipping. Experienced PHO makers note that, depending on the strain, it’s possible to get more terpenes and fewer residuals by using propane.

WAX -  Resembles honey which is where it gets its name. Wax concentrates have a very high content of THC and other cannabinoids (much higher than regular buds or trim runs) and need to be handled carefully. If you’re not used to vaporizing something so potent, the best advice I can give you is to start slow.

wax dab rig

How To Dab That Concentrated Wax

Unlike smoking a bowl, you are going to need a specific set of tools. Tools that will make any wax concentrate cower in fear of you.

TOOLS:

  • Dab rig - A small, bong-like smoking apparatus 

  • Nectar collector - A straw-like smoking device

  • Vape Pen - Concentrate vaporizer

Some consistencies of concentrate are easier to consume using all the various ways. Brittle/crunchy concentrates, like shatter, are easier to smoke when dropped onto a hot banger. It’s also worth noting that the higher the temperature you burn the nail, the much more harsh your smoke will be. When temperatures remain lower, the more flavor and cloud production.

When using a Nectar Collector, specifically designed trays/dishes are a must. These kinds of products are made out of glass, quartz, or silicone. After putting a small dab onto the container, blowtorch the tip of the collector. While heated, drag the hot nail across the wax while sucking through the mouthpiece. 

Health and Dabbing Wax

Dabbing wax is arguably one of the healthiest ways to smoke marijuana, although there haven't been too many studies quite yet. For us, it is a bit lighter on the throat and lungs (depending on how hot you prefer to dab).

Benefits of Dabbing

Cannabis enthusiasts will find some advantages to dabbing if they maintain clean and tested products. Dabbing is known for its quick onset time and lasting powerful effects on the user. For those who deal with chronic pains, use dabbing as a guaranteed way to obtain swift, effective bodily relief.

When properly made, dabs can be a product that’s much easier on the lungs than a typical cannabis flower. When smoking, burnt buds create resin which isn’t great for your lungs. Concentrates tend to destroy most unwanted resins while providing terpenes and other helpful cannabinoids into your body.

Dangers of Dabbing

Now for the bad news. Dabbing is, in fact, more dangerous than normal for the average smoker. To those unfamiliar with dabbing, heating a banger with essentially a flamethrowing lighter may appear dangerously off-putting. Though as tech moves forward, devices like an e-nail are eliminating the use of crazy torches. And trust me, I’ve burned many things (including my actual body) that I most certainly didn’t want or intend to.

What is 710?

Posted by CANNASaver on Wednesday, 23 June 2021 in Canna Blog - Latest News

Believe it or not, July is only a week and a half away. You may be gearing up for fireworks on the 4th, but as we are cannabis consumers, did you know 4/20 isn’t the only stoner holiday? Rejoice! This July stoner holiday has become very popular over recent years in Colorado. While maybe not as well known as the mother of cannabis holidays, 7/10 is a relatively recently established day in which cannabis concentrates are celebrated. But what is 710?

what is 710

The Code: 710

As I’m sure you are aware, 420 is the key code for establishing whether something is marijuana-related and the day in April on which to celebrate. Along with that comes the phrase "420 friendly" which describes whether an event, business, or household is accepting of marijuana-related activities. It helped to link like-minded pot-smoking people together.

In the years of legalization, a different three numbered code has emerged among the marijuana culture. 710 has become the term used to define marijuana concentrates (wax, shatter, etc.) and thus the celebratory day in which to dab down good and heavy. 

710 was chosen because when flipped around, 710 spells “OIL”. OIL is a term that has become synonymous with cannabis concentrates. Cannabis concentrates or “oil” is found in products such as wax, shatter, or live resin and when all put together with the specific smoking method creates dabbing. Like 420 friendly, if someone is 710 friendly they are perfectly fine with marijuana concentrates being around.

How Was 7/10 Started?

The popularity of cannabis oils has only appeared in recent years. Like most things in cannabis culture, some rumors, much like with the code “420”, extend back to the Grateful Dead in their heyday. But being only rumors, whoever coined the term 710 in relation to concentrates is a mystery though the code is widely used. Most likely, the code 710 only started to appear in the last decade. It has been said that the first 710 celebrations took place in 2012 when a group of oil enthusiasts pushed concentrates to the mainstream limelight.

710 holiday

It’s 7:10 on 7/10, What Will You Need To Celebrate?

A proper 7/10 will have you smoking your favorite concentrates on July 10, optimally at 7:10 a.m. or 7:10 p.m. Traditional “dabs” or pinhead size portions of concentrates, such as wax or shatter, are normally consumed by the use of a rig (small concentrate bong). You are also going to want a dab tool to pick up your concentrate with a torch to cause combustion. If you’re extra fancy, you can also attach an e-nail for consecutive hits without constant relighting.

Vape pens and other portable dab vapes have become incredibly popular in the past couple of years. They have made dabbing even easier for you to consume your favorite concentrates. Current vaporizers and portables allow you to heat your concentrate to an idle temperature making the devices very refined. Temperature control allows you to have complete control of the flavor and smoke production during your sesh.

710 Product Guide

Cannabis concentrates are products that contain much of the plant itself and appear in an assortment of ways. The naming of specific cannabis extracts can be a bit confusing to understand at first so let’s look at some concentrates.

Wax

A soft concentrate that can look many different ways in terms of color, texture, smell, and looks. It comes in varieties known as crumble, badder, budder, and honeycomb.

Shatter

A harder concentrate, shatter is named based on its likeness to glass. Shatter is a hard, fragile amber-colored, and translucent substance. Shatter also has a variety known as pull-n-snap. This is a softer concentrate texture making it easier to break up for smoking.

Live Resin

This delicious concentrate is widely known as the highest quality of marijuana extracts. Live resin is created by extracting plant materials process the marijuana plant has been cured/dried. With the process of live resin, the concentrate maintains its fullest terpene profiles. Another iteration is known as "sauce. This consistency has a more watery texture which drowns in rich flavor.

710 concentrates

As marijuana legalization spreads its way across America, the code term, 710, continues to gain traction as the years go by. 7/10 is a way to celebrate marijuana’s “OIL” with products like wax, shatter,  hash oil, and live resin. Concentrates such as these can be found as high in percentage as 90% THC.

Never underestimate the power of concentrates, not all marijuana products are equal; with differences in consistency, effects, and texture.

How Much Should You Pay For Weed?

Posted by CANNASaver on Friday, 04 June 2021 in Canna Blog

Once you’ve spent some time deciding what flower strain you’ll be bringing home, you are ready to check out. As you begin to check out you ponder the question: how much should you be paying for weed?

Legalized Mary Jane is weaving and winding its way around the nation. Recreational marijuana has become much more accessible than ever before in recent years thanks to changes in the legislature regarding marijuana as a Schedule I drug.

Many dispensaries are either opening or plan to open all across the United States in the next few years. 

how much should you pay for weed

How Much Should You Pay For Weed?

When it comes to the business of marijuana, Colorado has been one of the leading states in marijuana reform for many years now.

Over the years, the price per pound of marijuana has continued to decrease in the state.

The cost of weed is lower in Colorado than in most other states. Be thankful!

In honor of summer coming around, I’d like to be your pricing guide to do my absolute best to break down what affects the price market of marijuana and show you how much you should be paying for weed in Colorado. 

So, What Determines Weed Price?

Much like in other businesses outside the industry, many factors drive the price of the product (marijuana).

Location, Location, Location

Things such as being a big city vs a small town can drive marijuana prices drastically. 

Popular places like Las Vegas or Los Angeles have higher prices on weed due to how popular those destinations are.

The kind of cities where the demand and supply are high enough to “justify” higher prices. 

As opposed to Colorado where marijuana is grown in larger amounts.

In the Denver area, there are so many dispensaries that the cluster alone dictates pricing. Often seeing many more deals than other states due to supply being higher.

Higher quality cannabis can be found at lower prices because high-quality weed can be found almost everywhere in the state. You can find many more eager dispensaries giving discounts due to a high production supply. These are found more often in the states that have had legalization longer.

shopping for weed

Quality of the Buds

The quality of individual strains as they are rolled off production also helps in determining what will impact the price you will pay for it.

Cannabinoids found in different strains determine quality.

Strains of marijuana with higher CBD and/or THC typically raise prices on those strains.

Taxes

Much like with cigarettes or alcohol, taxes tend to bring what can be lower marijuana prices to much higher prices in a snap.

Often dispensary prices do not reflect this. Depending on where exactly you live, the price of your marijuana can range with the individual tax percentage each township puts in action.

In the state of Colorado, sales/retail tax for medical marijuana is 2.9% and 10% for recreational marijuana.

Time of Year

Harvesting times on different strains of cannabis play a big part in determining a city’s marijuana prices.

Think of marijuana as a crop, the season absolutely dictates when the plant flowers as well as when the plant needs to be harvested.

The conflict of this happening like a crop between so many dispensaries, each one with their individual grows will be harvesting their buds around the same time as well as trying to sell their batches at the same time.

This would result in the absolute ideal time to be a buyer.

Low, low prices.

price of weed

So Now, The Weed Price Breakdown

Everything in the marijuana world is measured in grams.

The gram is the base weighing measurement for marijuana.

Due to variations in strains, the visual size of one gram can change from bud to bud. As to the prices below, each weight is based on the average price per weight in Colorado.

I’m going to break down the prices of each separate marijuana weight, and help you to determine how much you can roughly expect to pay for the particular weight.

A pre-rolled joint?

The price of a pre-rolled joint depends on the quantity and quality of the bud which fills the joint.

Roughly, you can expect a joint to cost between $7-$15 with fancy-style joints going up in price much higher.

For a Gram?

A gram of marijuana is most likely the smallest quantity you can purchase at a dispensary.

The reason most people buy marijuana this way is to typically test a strain before making a bigger purchase.

A consumer can expect to pay between $5-$18 for a gram. 

For An Eighth?

An eighth is exactly 3.5 grams or 1/8th of an ounce and the amount typically ranges in price from $25-$55 in Colorado.

If you buy an eighth for less than $25, minus discounts and such, you should start considering the quality or potency of any given flower.

For a Quarter?

A quarter weighs 7 grams or ¼ of an ounce.

Quarters typically range from $50 to $80 with premium quality quarters exceeding $120 in some areas of Colorado.

Small price discounts can occasionally be a factor in pricing quarters much like buying from a bulk store. Though, this is not always guaranteed.

For a Half Ounce?

A half-ounce is exactly 14 grams of marijuana or you guessed it, one half of an ounce.

The price typically costs between $90 and $160 in most dispensaries in Colorado.

At this amount, bulk prices are really getting much cheaper.

They can range anywhere from $75 to $180, but more likely will be closer to $120.

This is a typical amount of marijuana a heavy smoker/someone with high tolerances will typically buy.

For An Ounce?

An ounce (also known as an O or zip) of marijuana weighs 28 grams or exactly one ounce.

An ounce can roll up to 80-100 joints.

This amount is the legal amount of marijuana one may possess at one time in Colorado.

An ounce of cannabis normally costs between $100 and as high as $300.

How to Keep Weed Fresh

Posted by CANNASaver on Thursday, 03 June 2021 in Canna Blog

Let’s face it, my dear friends: Colorado Mary Jane is profoundly fresh, tasty, and potent these days. As you return to your house with your new stash, you begin to open the jar to load a grand bowl. The sweet cannabis smells fill your surroundings with the attractive smells of your favorite dispensary. 

You want to be able to maintain that beautiful marijuana essence and aroma and these days, many serious canna-connoisseurs have several methods for keeping the freshness of their buds maintained. That said, you ponder in that thinker of yours, how do I keep my weed fresh? 

Well, I won’t keep you in suspense.

how to keep weed fresh

How To Keep Weed Fresh

Let’s look at why you should try to have accurate marijuana storage solutions, exactly what will keep your marijuana freshest, and how long your buds could last you in the best of fresh conditions.

The Very First Step

When considering how to keep flower at its freshest, it all begins with the flower you decide to buy and the way those buds are cured after harvest.

The curing process of marijuana cultivation dictates whether the harvested flower is properly dried.

This provides optimization of potency, maximum terpene output, and rids of moisture.

With a complete, controlled curing process, the stability of the different molecules within the plant (THC, cannabinoids, terpenes, etc.) becomes much stronger.

The Use of Air Control with Cannabis Storage

If you maintain well-stored marijuana, your favorite buds potentially can stay fresh for up to 2 years (sometimes longer). Even if you plan to puff it all down in a few days, proper weed storage will make sure you keep getting the most out of your marijuana.

The best way you can extend the life of your marijuana is to limit the amount your buds are exposed to the worldly elements. 

Glass jars are a great option for maintaining a level of freshness for your marijuana. Glass jars will create an airlocked containment for your buds which prevents any kind of bacteria or moisture created by environmental conditions.

It also helps to do these steps (relatively) quickly: open your cannabis container, pick out the buds you will smoke, then immediately get your jar closed to minimize contamination. 

Glass jars with rubber, casket-like seals protect your buds from being exposed to the air by shutting them tighter inside.

There are various sizes for different weights of cannabis and typically you can find a case of various jars at any local Walmart or grocery store.

proper weed storage

Humidity is Not Marijuana’s Friend

Moisture is the biggest enemy of Miss Mary Jane’s. The control of humidity is absolutely fundamental for maintaining the integrity of your marijuana while preventing your marijuana from getting different kinds of contaminants (mildew, mold, etc.). 

If there is too little moisture in your buds, trichomes will dry out completely and quickly degrade any terpenes or cannabinoids present.

But, if you allow there to be too much moisture present in the air around your herb, mildew and mold are much more likely to thrive. 

Low levels of humidity tend to damage your buds by breaking down the terpenes, trichomes, and/or cannabinoids much more quickly.

This also can affect the potency, flavors, and aromas of your weed. Boveda packs are great for combating low humidity.

They are a product you can buy which will absorb and if needed, re-introduce moisture back into your buds if they become too dehydrated. 

High levels of humidity are probably worse, however. With high levels of humidity, things like mold and mildew can develop.

Smoking products with mold or mildew can cause serious health problems. This is why it is recommended to have your buds in an environment with moisture between 59% to 65%.

This allows the maintenance of potency, flavors, and smells. Note that mold typically begins to form at humidity levels over 65%.

Blacking Out Your Marijuana

Similar to how the paint on someone’s car will fade slowly if the car is not garaged, light and sunlight are arguably the biggest factors in the degradation of your stash.

Ultraviolet light rays are the culprit when degrading your cannabis.

When choosing your glass jar, consider a darker tint container. The more exposure your weed has to light, the slimmer the chances of your flower maintaining its freshness. Marijuana is like other plants in terms of decaying by environmental factors; ie light. Lots of light exposure quickly dry any terpenes present in your marijuana and over time and sucks out aromas. 

The Temperature of Your Marijuana

If you maintain proper temperature levels in your cannabis, your weed can last you for years. The perfect temperature for storing your buds is around 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

If temperatures are much higher, your marijuana and terpenes will start to evaporate. This outcome brings dry, harsh buds without terpenes and flavor.

For proper storage, make sure you store your cannabis in a dark and cooler environment. But on the low-temperature end, don’t store your buds in a refrigerator.

A refrigerator tends to fluctuate too much in temperature from you or others around you opening/closing the door too often. The inconsistency can lead to another way your weed could potentially grow mold or mildew. Also, refrain from putting your weed in your freezer either. This causes trichomes to break off and lower potency.

So now, I hope you realize the importance of proper weed storage. Your marijuana will most definitely not last forever.

Over time, changes to the buds occur with light, humidity/moisture, and temperature.

When you maintain your buds properly, your buds can retain potency, flavor, smells, and terpenes for up to 2 months.

Budder vs Shatter

Posted by CANNASaver on Thursday, 03 June 2021 in Canna Blog

Budder and shatter are both forms of cannabis concentrates. Budder and Shatter are two common concentrates, but others include live resin, wax, or sap. 

Cannabis concentrates are made by chemically extracting the beneficial cannabis compounds from the marijuana flower, like the cannabinoids and terpenes. As such, they tend to have much higher THC concentrations (anywhere from 80% to 100% THC) than traditional marijuana, which hovers around 15% to 20% THC depending on the strain. Essentially, cannabis concentrates are a pure, isolated form of all the great stuff within marijuana.

The high THC concentration also means that you have to smoke a lot less product to get the beneficial effects, which can be better for your wallet and your overall health in the long run.

Concentrate Extraction Methods

Extraction methods for cannabis concentrates vary, however they can generally be grouped into 2 major umbrellas: solvent-based and non-solvent-based.

Thinking back to high-school chemistry, a solvent is a substance or chemical that will dissolve a solid, leaving a liquid solution. In the cannabis world, common solvents used to create concentrates are butane, propane, carbon dioxide, or alcohol

On the other hand, solventless extraction techniques, of which there are many, do not rely on any solvent. As a result, the final product is extremely pure, and many users report enjoying solventless concentrates more. However, these products tend to be much more expensive, and both major extraction methods have been studied extensively to ensure they’re both safe to the user.

shatter wax

What is Shatter?

Shatter is one of the most popular forms of cannabis concentrate. It is traditionally made using butane as a solvent to separate a marijuana plant’s cannabinoids and terpenes from the actual plant. From there, the extracted chemicals are processed into a hard, brittle, amber-color material that is known as Shatter. Shatter gets its name from the fact that it is easily breakable. Shatter concentrates have extremely high THC amounts that vary depending on cannabis strains used and extraction techniques, but generally are at least 85% THC.

budder wax

What is Budder?

Budder, often also called wax, is another form of cannabis concentrate. It is also traditionally made with butane as a solvent. However, unlike Shatter, which is hard and brittle, Budder, in its final form, has a softer and creamier consistency. This means that Budder can be much easier to work with than harder forms of cannabis concentrate. However, since it's a softer material, Budder degrades more quickly and loses its potency faster than harder concentrates.

Budder vs Shatter

Similarities

Budder and Shatter share a lot of key similarities. Both are traditionally made by using butane as a solvent and therefore fall under the umbrella of being called a butane hash oil (BHO).

Additionally, both budder and shatter have extremely high THC concentrations. They also generally tend to cost the same amount and are much more cost-efficient than compared to traditional marijuana.

Right now through Cannasaver, you can get 4 grams of budder and/or shatter for only $38 at any Golden Meds dispensary in Colorado.

In comparison, to get the same amount of THC from traditional flower, you’d be looking at buying ¾ oz, which will cost close to double.

Differences

There are a few key differences when comparing budder vs. shatter.

For one, shatter is a much harder, brittle material than budder, which is traditionally softer and creamier.

Additionally, many people find shatter more visually appealing than budder, since Shatter is a shinier amber, whereas budder tends to be a duller color.

Lastly, Shatter will keep its potency longer than Budder. Since Budder is a softer material, it isn’t as stable as harder concentrates and will degrade more quickly.

Shatter can keep its potency for months and even years, whereas you will want to use your budder more quickly. 

How to Consume Budder vs. Shatter

There are a plethora of different ways that you can consume budder and shatter. A very common way is to use a dab rig or other vaporizing device.

If you prefer, you can also break off pieces of budder or shatter to put inside a joint or blunt when smoking.

Lastly, you can also use budder and shatter inside edibles, if that’s your preferred way of consuming marijuana.

budder vs shatter

Popularity

Both budder and shatter have been growing in popularity recently for a couple of reasons.

Firstly, with recreational marijuana being legalized in more states every year, the market for all things cannabis will continue to grow.

Additionally, cannabis extracts have been growing in popularity when compared to traditional marijuana. When smoked, budder and shatter have a much more muted smell than traditional marijuana, which lends well to users who prefer to partake in the comfort of their own homes.

There’s also a growing school of thought that concentrates are “healthier” than traditional flower. Not only do you have to smoke less to receive the beneficial effects, which can be good for those with sensitive lungs, but you are smoking pure THC, CBD, and terpenes.

Lastly, since concentrates are generally cheaper and keep their potency longer than traditional flower, they are a great choice for the budget-conscious cannabis user. 

Price Differences & Deals

Both budder, often also called wax, and shatter will generally cost you about the same amount.

As such, there’s no real price difference between the two, and whichever type you pick is simply down to personal preference.

Per gram, you’ll generally be looking to spend between $20 and $30, with a lower per-gram price the more you buy. Some people like budder more because it’s softer and more forgiving, whereas others may prefer shatter because of its long shelf life and beautiful amber color.

No matter whether you’re looking into trying budder or shatter out for the first time or are a seasoned user, Cannasaver has partnered with dispensaries to offer you great deals.

One deal that’s particularly great for someone just looking to get started is a $12.95 gram of either Budder or Shatter at all Pure Dispensaries in Colorado.

If you’re a more seasoned user, you might be interested in 8 grams of top-shelf wax or shatter for $99 at The Lodge Cannabis in Denver.

No matter whether you’re interested in budder, shatter, edibles, pre-rolls, or pure flower, Cannasaver is sure to offer fantastic deals for everyone.

Marijuana is absolutely amazing and the weed business is helping states around the country. With a total of 29 U.S. states and Washington D.C. legalizing recreational marijuana for adult consumption, the U.S. is slowly going to pot. Let’s just say, it’s about damn time.

In November 2020, Proposition 207 appeared on the voting ballot in Arizona which was either for or against the legalization of marijuana.

The people of Arizona voted overwhelmingly for legalizing recreational marijuana for adults 21 and above.

That said, are recreational dispensaries available to Arizona?

Recreational marijuana sales started January 22, 2021, in Arizona in various locations around the state. With the November passing of Proposition 207, Arizona is legal for recreational use of marijuana for adults of 21 years or older.

An adult can possess one ounce of marijuana with absolutely no more than 5 grams of that being marijuana concentrates (wax, shatter, etc.). Allowed forms of recreational marijuana include flower, topicals, salves, edibles, and capsules.

Best Weed Strains for Productivity

Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 24 May 2021 in Canna Blog

When people think of stoners, the stereotype is usually that we sleep, eat and laugh…. A lot! While cannabis can be very sedating and relaxing, the reality is that not all strains have these ‘stoney’ attributes. 

There are countless reasons why people love and use Cannabis. While some people use it to help themselves relax, others use it to boost focus, creativity, and mental clarity -- like a cup of coffee.

A misconception about weed is that it makes people lazy. Sure, some strains are more sedating than others, but there is also a plethora of strains known to increase focus, energy, and creativity.

It all depends on how you pair your strains with particular activities.

If you’re unsure about which strains will help with your day-to-day productivity, seek the help of your budtender and they might just point you to the perfect strain for your needs.

being productive

Here are some of our favorite strains known to boost productivity:

Sour Diesel

Sour Diesel is known to produce a fast-acting and energizing cerebral high. Its uplifting effects make it popular for daytime use. Additionally, Sour Diesel can help relieve symptoms of depression and pain without the sedating side effects. You can rely on this strain to keep you productive and spark creativity.

Green Crack

Green Crack is a Sativa-dominant strain that is famous for its upbeat and energizing effects. This strain won’t leave you burning out and can instead be a little boost to help keep you afloat. It’s a great strain with strong Sativa effects and can help relieve symptoms of fatigue. 

Jack Herrer

Jack Herrer is loved for its ability to produce mental clarity. It’s a good Sativa that won’t leave you spacing out. Aside from helping with stress, anxiety, depression, and fatigue… Jack Herrer is also known to produce a euphoric and uplifting mood, users even report a boost in creativity when using this strain.

weed for productivity

Durban Poison

Durban Poison is known for its uplifting effects and is great for when you need to get things done. The pure Sativa strain has a sweet smell and users report feeling focused and energetic, without the stress when using this strain.

Chemdawg

Chemdawg is a potent strain known for its strong cerebral effects. It’s also known to increase focus and can make you feel more social. The hybrid strain is rich in THC (15-20%) and low in CBD, it’s also known to be fast-acting, so be ready to get hit with that energizing high.

Sativa vs. Indica

If you feel like it’s hard for you to focus or remain productive after a smoke sesh, try switching strains, or saving that specific strain for the nighttime. Some people like to smoke Sativa dominant strains during the day and Indica strains at night. This is because Sativa-dominant strains usually contain higher percentages of THC compared to CBD, whereas Indica-dominant strains are the opposite. 

Typically, Sativa strains are more stimulating and are known for producing a “head high,” that increases creativity and focus, while Indica strains are more sedative, producing more of a body high with increased feelings of relaxation.

Best Strains for Sleep

Posted by CANNASaver on Friday, 21 May 2021 in Canna Blog

Sleep is a huge factor in someone maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Sleep is a necessity for a healthy brain and your overall physical healthiness. While asleep, your brain will repair your blood vessels and other bodily functions. 

But if you’re like me, sleeping does not come easy. Like at all. Insomnia is a real son-of-a-bitch and those who experience it know it sucks. Many adults experience some sort of insomnia at some point in their lives. Some adults even deal with chronic insomnia.

Signs of insomnia include:

  • Difficulty falling asleep
  • Waking up in the middle of sleeping
  • Not feeling rested
  • Daytime tiredness
  • Difficulty paying attention

Sleep is oh so important to our ever-fragile physical and mental well-being. When we don’t get enough sleep, we don’t function at our most optimal. Work becomes way more stressful, our thought processes become much harder, and fatigue runs our emotional tanks to empty. 

Melatonin and various supplements can improve your sleep but there are studies that show that marijuana can help you get to sleep; much faster and stay asleep much longer. If you’re a canna-connoisseur like myself, many outstanding marijuana strains await you to offer a solution for sleeplessness. With that said, we will explore a few of the best marijuana strains for sleep.

weed for insomnia

The Science of Marijuana For Sleeping

Though still fairly recent, scientific research into the different uses for marijuana in the area of sleep has become something that may lead to more natural restful sleep. Many studies have shown marijuana’s ability to help deal with conditions that cause sleep disorders. Within any one marijuana plant, hundreds of cannabinoids are present.

Each cannabinoid holds the potential for medicinal properties. They stimulate the body’s cannabinoid system which regulates sleep, memory, appetite, and mood.

Terpenes For Sleeping

Strains that are high in these terpenes are going to be best for getting to sleep:

  • Terpinolene: Promotes a feeling of bliss. Helpful in aid for sleep

  • Myrcene: Affects the blood/brain barrier. The terpene lowers the barrier allowing THC to pass through easier thus allowing for a sustained high. The terpene protects against circulating toxins/diseases which cause brain infections. This process does not raise the psychoactivity of THC but naturally increases the sense of chill and couch-lock. This allows the marijuana to hit fast/strong. Typically completely halving cannabis onset time. 

  • Caryophyllene: Helps activate your endocannabinoid system. Making each cannabinoid in your body function much more potently.

good sleep

Watch Your THC Levels

THC marijuana strains are typically the most effective strains for sleeping. They are the most reliable source for creating the sedation effect which is essentially a sleep incarnate.

A strong indica is a good way to get high. But if a strain has too much THC, it can increase feelings of anxiety. If that’s the case, go lower in THC percentage. Intense feelings of anxiousness and paranoia are not good for promoting healthy sleep.

Increase Cannabinoids

Introducing cannabinoids such as CBD and CBN increases success for the most restful sleep. CBD is often used to reduce stress levels, stress, and various other conditions which lead to insomnia.

CBD also contains pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory elements which promote a better body and sleep as well.

CBN occurs in the marijuana plant as the plant ages because with time and extended exposure to heat/oxygen THC becomes CBN naturally. CBN interacts with your body’s natural endocannabinoid system directly.

The chemical allows your body to naturally influence mood and cognition which allows your brain to shut off much more efficiently for better sleep.

best strains for sleep

Indica Strains

Indica strains are known for much more of a body, can cause what we call “couch-lock”. This kind of relaxation goes with sleep like mac n cheese. Indica strains help to soothe your muscles and slow down that ever-thinking brain for the ultimate relaxation.

Top Strains For Sleeping

Before we begin our list, I’d like to mention that every strain affects every single person differently though common ground can be found between strains. With that said, I’d like to recommend some of the best strains for sleeping.

9lb Hammer

Like a powerful blow from Thor’s mighty hammer itself, 9lb Hammer is a heavy-hitting sedative, helping those who suffer from insomnia for years now. The strain clocks in between 20-23% THC. 

9lb Hammer contains incredible power and relaxing vibes. The taste of 9lb Hammer can be described as having light grape tones and various fruity flavors. The strain promotes feelings of euphoria and crushes insomnia like it was Thanos’ head. When you find your 9lb Hammer sweet spot when seshing at night, you’ll slide into dreamland on ice skates. 

Afghan Kush

The legendary Afghan Kush is a pure 100%  indica strain that can be traced back to the Hindu Kush mountain region. Like many Afghani lineage indicas, Afghan Kush has heavy, body-heavy effects that will move your body into bed with ease. With the strain being rich in CBD, Afghan Kush is one of the best strains for managing sleeplessness in those who tend to experience anxiety/paranoia when getting high.

Afghan Kush has a pleasant earthy scent and sweet taste undertones of old-school hash. It has dense buds amounting in an abundance of trichomes. This strain will take the distractions/pains you may have accumulated during the day and melt them away like butter.

Wedding Cake has a THC percentage of 23-25%. It basks in waves of vanilla smells and a berry taste. Wedding Cake reduces insomnia and provides pain relief.

Sleep well, friend!

Nighty night.

How Much is a Gram of Weed?

Posted by CANNASaver on Thursday, 13 May 2021 in Canna Blog

How do you know if you’re paying the right price for weed? The price of a gram will vary depending on what type of cannabis product you're purchasing and from where you’re purchasing from.

Typically, a gram of flower will cost less than a gram of concentrates. This is because concentrates are harder to produce and are typically more potent than flower-based cannabis products.

Prices for a gram of cannabis will also vary on your location and the status of the market. However, there is a standard price range for different types of products.

gram of weed

Here they are below:

Bud

A gram of cannabis flower will cost around $10-$20 depending on the quality and strain, newer and more rare strains are typically more expensive.

A gram is usually the smallest measure of cannabis flower available to purchase and is also the most widely available.

Check out our flower deals here.

Pre Roll-joints

Pre-roll joints are great for those in a hurry or for those who don’t have the best joint-rolling skills.

A pre-roll joint will usually cost $5-$25 depending on the strain and quality of the cannabis used.

A typical pre-roll joint will usually contain a half-gram of weed, meaning a gram of pre-rolls can cost around $10-$50.

Check out our pre-roll deals here.

Moonrocks

Moon rocks are nugs of cannabis flower, dipped in concentrates like distillate, oil, wax, or shatter, then rolled in kief.

They are also referred to as ‘kaviar.’

They are high in THC levels (over 50%) and are extremely potent.

You can expect moon rocks to cost more than an equal amount of flower because of their additional ingredients and potency. They usually start at $35 a gram.

Check out our deals on Moonrocks here.

gram of distillate

Distillate

Distillate is a cannabis extract that is stripped of all materials and compounds except for one specific cannabinoid.

The most common forms of distillate come in the form of THC oil and CBD oil and are the base ingredient of most edibles and cartridges.

Distillates will usually start at $35-$60 per gram.

The prices for distillates are much higher than flower products because of their more complicated production process.

Check out our deals on distillate products here.

Wax/ Shatter

Shatter is a translucent concentrate that is produced using butane. Wax is also a BHO concentrate but has the same consistency and thickness as wax, hence the name.

A gram of wax and shatter usually starts at $20-$55 per gram.

Check out our wax and shatter deals.

gram of live resin

Live Resin

A gram of live resin will run you about $35-$80 a gram. Some higher-end resins can even cost up to $100 per gram.

Live resin is more expensive than other types of concentrates because of its potency and complicated production process.

Deals on Live Resin here.

Best CBD Deals

Posted by CANNASaver on Friday, 23 April 2021 in Canna Blog

Although we're known for having the best deals on marijuana and THC-related products in Colorado, don't just have deals on weed. The marijuana coupon website also has amazing deals on CBD oils, tinctures, topicals, and more.

What is CBD?

If you’re new to the weed world – or just still don’t quite get what CBD is – you’re not alone. The use of CBD has exploded over the last few years, and it’s a product you can find in a lot of places.

The marijuana plant is filled with different cannabinoids – compounds found within cannabis that have varying effects. There are over 100 known cannabinoids, the most notable being tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is the cannabinoid that gives marijuana its psychoactive and euphoric effects. 

The other major cannabinoid in marijuana is cannabidiol (CBD). CBD produces no psychoactive effects – you don’t get high off CBD. Instead, CBD offers pain relief and a calming effect. This isn’t to say that CBD doesn’t alter your consciousness – users often will be more mellow and relaxed, just not “high.”

People take CBD products for a few different reasons – the main ones being pain and anxiety relief. Healthline reported that there are even more key benefits to taking CBD:

·         Pain relief

·         Anxiety relief

·         Acne reduction

·         Heart health benefits

·         Cancer symptom alleviation

·         Neuroprotective properties

 Studies into the positive effects of CBD are still relatively new and ongoing but expect to find more and more benefits discovered in the coming years.

types of cbd products

Types of CBD Products

CBD has been infused with a multitude of wellness products over the last few years. The most popular of these products include:

·         Oils & Tinctures – CBD extracted from marijuana is combined with different oils to be taken orally.

·         Edibles – like THC edibles, CBD is combined with food.

·         Topicals – these are CBD-infused skin products to be administered topically, or on the skin.

·         Capsules – CBD is extracted and then made into pill form.

·         Drinks – popular drinks are infused with extracted CBD.

You can also purchase CBD strains of flower to smoke. It won’t get you high – but it can satisfy those who like the act of smoking.

What CBD Product Should I Try?

Exactly what CBD product you should buy is dependent on your situation. If you're using it for pain relief, typically a topical cream rubbed directly on the injured area is a great route – but you can also take edibles or oils or smoke flower for the same effects. 

Because of the different ways of ingestion, the CBD will take longer to get into the system. Generally, edibles and tinctures will take the longest amount of time to kick in – but they also last the longest. Topical creams work relatively fast, but you may find that the effects won’t last as long. Smoking or vaping CBD will kick in at the same pace THC does – but don’t expect a high.

We recommend experimenting with several different types of CBD products to find what works best for you. Luckily, Cannasaver has tons of deals on CBD, so trying these products won’t hurt your wallet. Check out some of the awesome deals below.

Vaping Deals of the Day

Posted by CANNASaver on Wednesday, 21 April 2021 in Canna Blog - Latest News

Vaping cannabis has become an extremely popular way of consuming cannabis. Many stoners turn to vape because of its functionality, portability, and discretion. Vaping cannabis also eliminates the health impacts that traditional methods of smoking can have. 

Vapes are portable and therefore easy to carry around, meaning you don’t have to worry about keeping your grinder, papes, and lighter handy. Vaping cannabis is also known to produce less odor than smoking it from a bong or joint, allowing you to smoke in public without drawing unwanted attention to yourself.

The market for e-vaporizers keeps expanding and new products are coming out faster than we can blink. Along with that, innovative cannabis products are also emerging, allowing weed smokers to switch over to vaping.

How Much Does Hash Cost?

Posted by CANNASaver on Tuesday, 20 April 2021 in Canna Blog

Many cannabis lovers and enthusiasts are turning to concentrates and other ways of consuming cannabis, especially if they’re seeking a next-level high.

And, when talking about concentrates, it’s impossible not to mention hash or hashish. We'll answer all your questions – or, better yet, let's hash it out...

closeup of hash

What is Hash?

Hash has been used for both recreational and medicinal purposes – Its history goes back to approximately 900AD.

Hash is a concentrated form of cannabis and contains very high levels of THC, it is produced by pressing the resin glands of the cannabis plant together. 

In simple terms, hash is basically just pressed and heated kief. The powdery kief transforms into the brick-like structure that hash is known for, during the production process. 

Hash can be consumed in numerous ways. It can be consumed orally, smoked, or vaporized. You can smoke it on its own or you can mix it in with your flower. Chemically extracted hash such as shatter and wax can be vaporized with a dab rig or with a vape/ dab pen that works with concentrates. 

Where Can I Find Hash?

Essentially all your favorite concentrates are made from hash and you can typically find hash and other concentrates at most of your dispensaries. Colorado is home to some of the best companies specializing in cannabis concentrates and the cannabis industry in the state has been maturing since legalization in 2012

On the other hand, you could also DIY your own hash at home. All you’ll need are simple products you can find in your home, and obviously some good ol’ kief. 

The first step is to put your kief in between some parchment paper. The next step is to press and heat the parchment paper and its components with a flat iron or hair straightener. After being heated, the substance will turn into a solid/ liquid that can be smoked, vaporized, or dabbed with a rig. 

You can also make hash by just using your hands - take your kief/ flower, then press and roll them in your hands until a paste-like texture is achieved. Old school style.

price of hash

How Much Does Hash Cost?

Most dispensaries will offer $10-$40 a gram for water-based hash. This includes bubble hash, temple hash, and hand-pressed hash. The range depends on the quality and from where you purchase the hash form. 

Chemically extracted hash can cost anywhere from $20-$80 depending on the quality and THC content.

Chemically extracted hash includes shatter, budder, wax, and BHO

Hash is cheaper than flower because it is made out of kief whereas marijuana buds are composed of the whole plant. Although hash is more concentrated,

Sizes and Prices of Weed

Posted by CANNASaver on Tuesday, 20 April 2021 in Canna Blog

Been a while since you’ve bought any bud? Maybe you’re new to the marijuana world or maybe you’ve been smoking straight concentrates for a while.

Either way, it’s helpful to know exactly what you’re looking for when you head to the dispensary. 

There’s a lot more math involved with buying marijuana than there is with other products. You know exactly how many beers are in a six-pack or eggs are in a carton. You should also know exactly how much weed you’re getting when you purchase. 

bag of weed

Traditionally, weed is measured in terms of ounces.

The most common weights you can purchase weed at are:

·         Gram

·         ⅛ (eighth)

·         ¼ (quarter ounce)

·         ½ (half-ounce)

·         Full ounce

Obviously, how long each will last is completely dependent on how often you smoke. If you don’t smoke very much, it doesn’t make much sense to buy an ounce – regardless of it being a better deal per gram.

Buying in bulk is generally always going to get you the best deal – but it doesn’t matter if the weed goes to waste. Marijuana can even go bad if left unused and stored incorrectly for too long.

While it’s firstly most important to know your smoking habits before purchasing flower, it’s also important to have some general knowledge of the sizes and prices of weed.

Gram – 1g

A gram is generally the smallest amount of flower you can buy. Remember dime bags? Depending on where you’re from and how expensive weed was there, a gram of marijuana typically cost $10. That obviously varied with quality – but the general rule of thumb was that $10 bought you a gram.

 The price has stayed relatively the same since, but it does vary from dispensary to dispensary and strain to strain. Typically you’ll be paying between $6-$20 for a gram – the better quality the flower the higher the price.

A gram will usually pack about a joint or two, depending on how fat you roll them. A dispensary typically offers gram or half-gram pre-rolls – so a gram gets you roughly that.

This is going to be where you’re paying the most for your weed. It is cheap, but from a price-per-gram perspective, it’s the most expensive. It’s not until you start buying in bulk that this becomes apparent.

⅛ Eighth – 3.5g

An eighth is going to be where you see that buying in bulk can save you money. Typically an eighth can cost anywhere from $25-$60, but that can vary based on quality of the bud. Some dispensaries will even sell four-gram eighths to promote purchasing bulkier amounts.

 When comparing a gram vs. an eighth, it will almost always be cheaper to buy an eighth than three and a half individual grams

Typically an eighth will give you about four to seven joints worth of weed – again, dependent completely on how much you pack. Bowl packs depend specifically on size of the bowl and how full you pack those as well. 

An eighth is good for those who smoke a little bit more than occasionally, but still not too often. How long it lasts depends entirely on you – but it’s safe to say that if you smoke more often, then bigger quantities are for you. 

price of weed

¼ Quarter – 7g

A quarter-ounce is for people who smoke more often. At seven grams, it’s double the size of an eighth, but not double the price. It’s cheaper to buy one quarter than two separate eighths.  

Typically you’ll get about twelve to sixteen joints out of a quarter – dependent on you again. A quarter is usually going to run you somewhere between $40-$80 but can be cheaper or more expensive depending on the quality of the bud.

A quarter is good for frequent smokers, as it lasts twice as long as an eighth and has a good price point. It’s a good point between a small purchase and a larger, bulkier purchase.

½ Half-Ounce – 14g

Also known as half a zip, a half-ounce is a more serious purchase than the others. This is for a pretty serious smoker. Weighing in at fourteen grams, a half-ounce is for those who don’t want to be running out any time soon.

You’ll get – obviously – double the amount of weed you get from a quarter. So, think somewhere around two dozen joints in a half-ounce. It’ll cost you a bit more money, but this is really where buying in bulk saves in the long run.

Generally, a half-ounce will cost somewhere between $100-$120, much cheaper than buying two quarters or four eighths. Obviously, prices can get much higher or lower depending on quality.

ounce of weed

Full Ounce – 28g

In most legal states, this is the largest amount of weed you can buy at any one time. An ounce is for the serious smoker, who doesn’t miss a day and doesn’t like being low.

For a general idea on size, it’s the legal limit a person can own in Colorado. This is because of the amount – an ounce is large enough that any bigger and people will think you have intent to distribute.

An ounce is a full 28 grams – should give you somewhere near 100 joints. Depends entirely on the quality of the weed, but the price range is generally somewhere between $150-$220. Look for prices even higher than that when dealing with high-quality stuff.

Quarter-Pound – 112g

The quarter-pound is a pretty rare size of marijuana. Four times the amount of an ounce, it’s still illegal to have this much weed on your person in Colorado.

 It’s hard to find anywhere to pick up a quarter-pound – but if you do, it’s going to be expensive. A quarter-pound is going to cost you somewhere around $800, but can easily be more or less depending on where you’re getting it from.

This amount of for a very serious smoker – and even then, it will take a while to go through.

Now that we’ve taken care of sizes and you know what you’re looking for, head into the dispensary and buy the perfect size for you. Check out our homepage first to make sure you’re not missing out on any killer deals.
