    So from reading all the posts it seems the only standard to measure against is a 1/4 and a 1/2 of an ounce the rest 5$ 10$ you can go on by sight (which I do) right?:)

    I know people sell eighths, particularly of better quality stuff. I've never seen anything sold below that by weight.

    it's tough to say how many dimes are in an ounce because buying dimes is one of the most inefficient ways of buying weed (unless you can make a miniscule amount of weed last for at least 3 days)



    schwag dime = 1.5 g
    mids dime = 1 g
    kb dime = a little over half a gram (.5 if it's the best ****)

    (28 grams/oz) so...
    28/1.5 = 19 dimes of schwag in an ounce
    28/1 = 28 dimes of mids in an ounce
    28/.5 = 56 dimes of kb in an ounce

    (for newbies)
    19, 28, 56...these are very large numbers when it comes to selling that many people a dime sack each... that's why people don't like to sell small amounts

    I'll break it down for everyone. Around here in Ontario Canada all this stuff below is what I pay. Lol - Only dealers buy qps...

    Nickel - $5.00 - 0.5 Gram
    Dime - $10.00 - 1.0 Gram
    Twin - $20.00 - 2.0 Grams
    Half Quarter - $40.00 - 4.0 Grams
    Quarter - $80.00 - 8.5 Grams
    Half Ounce - $130.00 - 14.00 Grams
    Ounce - $240.00 - 28.00 Grams

    Yep, it's expensive... But it gets cheaper with higher quantities. Also, most dealers won't deal unless you buy a twin or up. Also, the skunk is the same price as the **** weed, just how it goes...

    dunno its kinda wierd here.... like a quarter doesnt even mean 1/4 ounce cause most dealers around here gotta give more weed when prices get better.... i guess everywhere its different.

    Well I always go by this rule of thumb. If you are buying indoor, an eigth SHOULD have 9-12 bowls, depending on how dense/wet the bud is. So from there a dime consists of about 2 bowls, 1/8 = about 4-5 dimes. 4-5 dimes in 1/8, 8 eigths in an ounce, about 35-40 dimes in an ounce. Yup.

    "Nickel (noun) - A $5 amount of marijuana."

    The terms "dime" and "nickel" differ from terms like "quarter" because the first two terms deal with a static PRICE ($5 or $10) and dynamic (changing) amount of weed (some people can get 1g for $10 while others can only get .5g for $10) while a quarter deals with a static AMOUNT (7 g every day of the year) and a dynamic price (some people pay $50, some pay $100, either way they still get 7 g of weed).

    28 g = ounce

    1 g = dime

    28 DEVIDED BY 1 is 28.. hence 28 dimes
  17. How the hell is this thread still going! It is such an easy question and answer!!

    Except that 1 gram is not necessarily one dime. If you read the thread, you'll see arguments for a dime equalling A) 10 dollars, B) 1/10 of an ounce (or 2.8 grams), C) 1/40 of an ounce or 5 dollars, depending on how you want to read that post, and now D)you claim it equals 1 gram.

    So I would claim that the prevailing opinion is that it is $10 of weed, however, this definition may vary by locale. I don't see a good reason to call a gram a dime when you could simply call it a gram.

    (And the thread lives on!)

    1 gram=$15
    1 dime(.7)=$10

    half quad=approx. 5 dimes (3.5)
    quad=approx. 10 dimes
    half o=approx. 20 dimes
    ounce=approx. 40 dimes

    Thats how its always been here in toronto (for me anyway)...
