it would be true if a dub = 1.5 grams
and a dime = .5 grams

but it all depends on how much your paying per gram... it shouldn't be too much of a difference for \$15/gram or less per gram...maybe a gram and a half to two grams difference

it all depends on price per gram

dubs make no sense to me.

dub = 2?

\$20 = 3.5 = dub ?

5. #5
1+1+.5=2.5

1/8th= 3.5

A dub = a double....

Usually just means \$20....

How much product you get for a "dub" is gonna depend on the quality, location, and dealer.

An eighth = 3.5 grams

Which is an eighth of an Ounce btw(28 grams).

The difference is that a dub is just slang for \$20 and it doesnt necessarily have to be a certain amount.
An eighth is an eighth of an ounce and that never changes.
Hope this helps.

thanks guys...
im just trying to figure out, i have 60 dollars. obviously, 420 is tmrw. i'd like to get as much as i can for as little... dimes are \$10, dubs are \$20, and eighths in my town are usually \$45-50.. =/

usually buying in bulk will help save money...but if you have 60 dollars, try to get an eighth of dankity or if your so inclined a quarter of mids

9. #9

10. #10
WOAHHHH where the fuck do you live i want in on that! haha

upper part of florida.

i get quarters for 25 and used to get a 20 bag and it'd be called a dub, and was a hell of alot more then 2 grams...........

mids btw.

i usually only buy quarters now so it doesnt matter much for me anymore anyway how much a dub is.

people....a dub is slang for \$20

so whatever you get for 20 bucks is your "dub"

OP, if you're talking mid grade, a "dub" should get you a eighth

or danks...its gonna be about a gram.

Dub doesn't necessarily mean 2 grams, It's \$20 worth.
Just like a dime doesn't mean 1 gram, it's \$10 worth.

A dub traditionally is 2 grams, or \$20.
An eigth is traditionally 3.5 Grams, Although price varies depending on quality and location.

In my town, a dub is slang for two grams and that'll cost 20 dollars
Also, in my town, an 8th is 3.5 grams and that'll cost 25 dollars

16. #16
an 8th is an 8th, doesn't matter where you are ^^

17. #17
Usually when you ask for a dub you get 20 bucks worth if it's really dank it's probably about 1 gram

18. #18
Yeah, i rushed my point. It's just real bad around here. Dubs are always 20+ for me... it's sickening. Thats why I never use slang when buying, I tell them I want an Oz if i want an Oz, or a gram if thats what i want. I'm the customer in the traditional sense, so let them adjust the prices accordingly.

let me begin by setting the record strait.

a dub = \$20
a dime = \$10

1/8 of weed for \$50 is reasonable if it is dank.

So yes, it can be true.

20. #20
it depends because a dub varies on size because a dub is referring to \$20
and an eighth is referring to size i.e 1/8 of an ounce.
