    An 1/8th of weed is 1/8 of an ounce. A quarter is 1/4 of an ounce. A half is 1/2 of an ounce.

    1 ........................28.34

    Typically a dime is 1/10 of an ounce or 2.83 grams

    Ross, is that the actual mathematical break down? Pretty cool to see EXACTLY what it is. Hehehe.

    When getting sacks they should weigh more because of the baggy. :)

    Well, technically it isn't exact. I truncated to two decimal places. I figured people wouldn't lose sleep over the fact that an ounce is really 28.349523 grams...

    a plastic bag weighs 1g so an 1/8th on a swing scale would be 4.5 g

    Did youn acctually weigh it out?
    because 2g for 10$ is good(as long as itz not shwag)
    if you can get good weed for 30$ bucks an 1/8 its not that bad at all
    i pay $40 for a 1/8 of decent mids

    1. Im very new to this ive bought weed maybe 4 times in my life
    2. Whats schwag?
    3. Yes i weighed it out the 2 grams with scale dealer and i both did he is trying to help me learn.
    4. The time before with the 4 grams for 30 dollars. 1st and foremost i went to him and asked for a quarter. he gave me a baggie and said 30 bucks i went home and weighed it it was only 4 grams. i never went back to that guy again. the weed was ok lil dark then usual id never seen anything so dark before probably had resin poured on it. it got me pretty high but mostly depressed next morning. more like a zombie feeling on the after affects.
    5. the 2 grams i bought from different guy was smooth and not so harsh as last stuff and the new dealer hooked me up i asked for dime bag and he gave me 2 grams for 10 bucks. he was really kewl i think ill probably stick withhim.
    6. what im really loking for is how to know when someone is screwing you.? and how to tell the difference between good weed and bad weed?. Also i was looking at the bud last night that i got for 2 grams its got redish orangish almost like veins going through the buds. dont see any crystals tho? but then again i dont know what they look like Lol .. if someone has a pic they can show me of what crystals look like in a bud. would be helpful

    SHwag is weed that is usally dark in color has more steams and more seeds no crystals and little to none red hairs ussaly lower in price and somtimes when smoked causes headaches. as Fine weed is the oppisite much better high but very expensive

    i just borrowed these from the site

    I'm not trying to be mean or anything, but it's simple, and you should learn it, you'll need it later anyways.

    There are 28.35 grams in an ounce. A half ounce would be, you guessed it, half of 28.35. If you suck at math download a calculator and divide 28.35 by 2. It will give some huge ass number, but basically a half is around 14+ grams. A quarter is a 1/4 of the ounce. So you would divide 28.35 by 4, about 7 grams exactly. And an 1/8 is, duh, 28.35 divided by 8, which will between 3-4 grams.

    Use a mail scale to weigh it out, making sure you account for the weight of the bag first.

    Hope that helps! :)
