Sometimes, it can seem like the world of cannabis has a language all its own. Whether you’re talking about the different product options, methods of consumption, or even units of measurement, cannabis can be a confusing topic.
So, if you’re wondering what cannabis quantities look like, you’re not alone. One of the most common questions we get at Giving Tree Dispensary is, “What does cannabis look like when measured in grams, quarters, ounces, etc.?”
We’ve put together a handy guide to help you navigate the most common ways to measure cannabis, giving you a good reference for typical quantities you’ll find for sale in our dispensary. With this guide in hand, you can worry less about on-the-spot calculations and focus on finding the next great flower or product option you want to try.
Breakdown of Cannabis Quantities & Measurements
One of the biggest reasons for the confusion surrounding measurements for cannabis is that the concept of “weight” generally depends on both density and the product size. This can make it especially difficult to determine how much cannabis to buy and exactly what you’re paying for.
From one product to the next, density can vary dramatically. So, you might look at a large, fluffy bud and a small but dense cannabis flower and be confused when they’re labeled with the same weight. Also, as the flower loses its moisture over time, its weight will decrease. That means that if you weigh a bud a few weeks after you purchased it, it’s not unusual for it to be a bit lighter.
There is good news: you don’t have to develop an eagle eye for visualizing cannabis quantities because we always have digital scales to weigh everything before buying it. You can also buy your own digital scale and double-check the weight of your products if you’d like.
We’ve also given you a useful reference for how to convert ounces of cannabis to grams, so you can browse our menu and dispensary that much easier.
