Ordering marijuana home delivery for the first time can be intimidating – especially if you’re newer to cannabis.
One of the most common areas of confusion is the different amounts of weed that can be ordered. If you’re unsure whether you should order an eighth, a quarter or a half, read our beginner’s guide to cannabis measurements below.
Trying out a new strain for the first time, or prefer to smoke every now and then? Buying an eighth is a great way to go.
An “eighth” of marijuana is just ⅛ of an ounce or three and a half grams. However, it’s also common to see eighths that actually contain four ounces, depending on how a particular dispensary likes to package them.
When cannabis users begin smoking more regularly, they usually start buying “quarters.” This is the most popular measurement weed is purchased in and will generally be a better deal than buying an eighth.
A “quarter” is ¼ of an ounce, or seven grams, of cannabis. If you’ve tried out a few strains and settled on one of your first favorites, buying a quarter of weed is a great option.
A “half” is ½ an ounce, or 14 grams, of weed – which is quite a bit. Halves are typically bought by more regular users who have higher tolerance levels.
If you use cannabis daily or are picking up enough for a night with friends, buying a half will likely be more economical. Half-ounces of weed are typically around seven dollars a gram, which is a significant jump down from the 20 dollars you might pay for an eighth.
The next measurement up from a half is a whole ounce, and it is a lot of marijuana. This 28-gram size jar is enough for you to smoke an entire blunt every day for a month.
If you’re stocking up for a winter storm (or maybe a zombie apocalypse), ordering an ounce will ensure you’ve got enough weed to make it to the end.
