Measuring the weed through conversion method
The gram is the basic measure of weed which is sold in the dispensary or from the local seller on the streets. In terms of ounce, when we break it into 8 parts, we get an eighth which is 3.5 grams. The eighth is one-eighth of an ounce. We get an eighth at roughly $60. The quarter is one-fourth of an ounce which is 7 grams and costs about $120. How many grams are in an ounce of weed? An ounce contains 28 grams which is also 4 quads while a pound contains 16 ounces. The cost rises proportionately to the quantity bought. Once you are sure about how many grams are in an ounce of weed, you can calculate and check if you get the right quantity of weed that you had asked for. The seller cannot dupe you.
