What do different measurements/units of marijuana look like?

Asked by anonynon (103points) October 10th, 2010

I don’t really smoke and have never bought weed so I don’t know about this sort of thing. When I overhear people say a “gram” or an “eighth” or an “ounce” (usually in films), what does this look like?

Google images is not helpful as it just shows pictures of all sorts of weed (when I google “eighth of weed” I get pictures of extreme close-ups or ridiculously large quantities). Other websites try to explain things by saying, “well, an eighth is X many grams” but this goes over my head without a visual.

I’d love to know where I can see pictures or get VISUAL (not numeric) descriptions of what these measurements look like so when friends, movies, rappers etc talk about this sort of thing I can imagine what they’re talking about. Also, so I don’t feel like a confused square anymore.

Well the best way to learn is to just get out there and start buying and selling. You’ll soon pick it up but, just to be safe, you could always carry something like this with you.

@Lightlyseared I don’t know if that’s really the best way to learn. I don’t do these things any more but I think it might be best, in terms of “customer satisfaction” and @anonynon‘s personal well being, that he get a pretty good understanding of the weights and measurements of marijuana before he starts selling. A very important thing to understand before you buy, too, of course, so as not to get ripped off.

FYI, I do not plan to sell anything. Just curious.

A gram looks about the size of a Jawbreaker candy.
A Fifty Sack (a 1/8 bag) looks like the size of about a plum.
An Ounce looks like a sandwich baggy stuffed to the max.

A dime is 1.0 grams.($10)
A dub is 2.0 grams ($20)
An eight is 3.5 grams ($35)
A quarter is 7.0 grams ($70)
A half is 14.0 grams($140)
A full ounce is 28.3 grams ($280)
These are the prices for top shelf/privet reserve.
