Many people are always asking "can you show me an 1/8 or a quarter"or something like that and I decided to make a thread about roughly how much a certain amount of weed is. These statements about how many people last and pictures are again a general idea of what they are and may not be 100% accurate according to some people. Hope it helps.
This is your standard gram, otherwise known as a dimebag. Grams are the bags that piss your dealer off when you always buy them. Good for a 2-3 person blunt. Average prices run $10-$20. Anything above that, your getting ripped.
This is your standard 1/8 otherwise known as an eigth, slice, or cut. This amount of weed is more commonly bought than grams but your dealer would probably not drive to you to sell it. Good for 2-4 people lasting about a weekend rolling gram blunts. Average price is from $20-$65. Anything over that better be some crazy ass alien dope shit.
These are your standard 1/4s otherwise known as a fourth, quad, 2 slices, or a quarter. This may last a daily smoker a week or weekend smokers about a month or 2. This is where dealers usually don't mind driving to someones crib to go sell it to you. Prices average from $70-$120 Anything over is a no-no.
These are your standard Half ounces otherwise known as a half, 1/2, or half zip. A half O can usually last a daily smoker about a week and a half to 2 weeks. Your dealer has no problem driving to you to go sell it. Prices average $100-$180.
These are your average Oz's otherwise known as ounce, O, or zip. This will last a daily smoker about 2 weeks-month of smoking and a weekend smoker would need a few friends over for about 3 weeks to finish it. Dealers love selling Oz's and people love buying them. Average prices will run you $200-$450.
Now to go over some bud quality. Remember when buying weed, amount AND quality both account for what your going to pay and prices always depend on certain factors based mostly on location and availbility.
Weed that no one should be wanting to even think about putting in a bowl. Stems and seeds are always the number one factor in being able to tell bad weed. Low grade weed is also usually broken up in bags not in nug form. Refered to as Schwag or Dirt.
Mids are the most common and most purchased weed in the market. Usually a seed or two packed in there somehow. High's are alright and good to just look for a quick smoke sesh.
Refered to as "high mids" or middies or sometimes headies, this is the weed you don't mind seeing when you get your baggie. Usually no seeds on the premises and is a good smoke.
The weed you always hope to see when you buy your baggie. Always in nug form and usually has one long stem holding a big nug together. Frosty the snow man don't got shit on dank. Dank are the names like AK-47 White Rhino and That Kush. Also known as fire or bomb. Be prepared to work a few hours overtime for this shit though because the price is always jabbed up for it but it's worth the money.
To everyone, I hope this guide has helped a little bit and made you better at eyeballing your bags ensuring you hopefully don't get ripped off. If anyone still has questions post them here and I'll be happy to assist.
