We all know that there are 16 ounces in a pound, so it stands to reason that a half pound is 8 ounces, right? Then for our conversation, we have established that there are 8 ounces of weed in half a pound. Many people buy their weed in grams, so the following question on your mind is: how much weed is 8 ounces in gram weight?
To be exact, the correct weight of one ounce of weed is 28.3 grams. Most dispensaries will round off the weight to 28 grams on purchasing. An ounce of Cannabis is legally what anyone can have in their possession. A legal grower can have way more than that in their possession since they grow to sell to dispensaries or manufacturers of Cannabis products.
Since one ounce of weed is roughly 28 grams, 8 ounces should be 8×28=224grams. So a pound of Cannabis is 453 grams. This is an amount you will rarely see in any one place. Having this amount in your possession for a responsible user, one pound of weed should last you one year or more. If you are a recreational user, you can share with friends for greater enjoyment. Cannabis users, for medical reasons, will find they are more restricted in their use. Thus, the amount lasts much longer.
If purchased from a roadside vendor, you expose yourself to buying fake weed! This is a reality! You open yourself to real danger. People have been hospitalized for consuming this unknown substance believing it to be Cannabis. When you buy your products from a licensed Cannabis Dispensary, you can ask questions about the strain, should you have a preference. They can guide you in your choice of weed and explain what to expect. For some dispensaries, you may be able to try the product, especially if you are a newcomer to the club of Cannabis use.
If you are not familiar with a metric scale, ask the dispenser for the conversion. They have to have the customer comfortable with their purchase. Maybe you can take your ranking to ensure you get the correct weight of weed you want. In some states, the dispensary will pre-package the weed in varying weights. If you are still not sure you bought your correct weight, use your home scale to verify.
Whether you purchase a gram or an ounce, the responsibility of using cannabis is essential. Like drinking alcohol or taking a medication that makes you tired, Cannabis is the same. Ensure after using, don’t drive. If you must go, ask a non-smoker to take you where you want to. But for the safest recourse, stay home and relax in your relaxed state.
