Ever wonder how many grams are in an ounce of weed?
How nice would it be if marijuana purchases were straightforward? In states such as Colorado, California and most recently, Illinois, where marijuana is legal for recreational use, it is! All you simply have to do is buy your ganja like you would a gallon of orange juice or a carton of eggs. The legal market is regulated so sellers can not get away with ripping you off. All you have to simply do is choose your weed and they have to give you the precise amount, every time.
The black market is a bit different. Sometimes, your local dealer won’t necessarily be a straight shooter. After all, in states where weed is still illegal, the dealer is pretty much considered a criminal. There are severe punishments brought upon them if they get caught. Not to mention, you can go to jail too. So if your ounce of weed is off by a few grams (or ten), you can’t call the cops!
Even in legal regulated markets, it helps to know how much weed you’re purchasing, whether it be in the form of flower or edibles. To take the guesswork out of the equation, it always helps to purchase a weed scale. Below we have a guide you can use to know how many grams are in an ounce, eight, quarter, and so on.
