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.

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.
