What Are the Common Measurements Used to Describe Cannabis?
When cannabis is discussed, it is typically referred to in common measurement terms that are based on one ounce. It is important to understand what these measurements mean and refer to them because this is how it is sold. For example, it is common for people to refer to cannabis in measurements of eighths, quarters, and halves. This is all referring to parts of the ounce, not pounds or grams of weight. So, when someone refers to an eighth, they mean an eighth of an ounce; or a quarter refers to a quarter of an ounce.
It is also not uncommon to hear cannabis measurements in grams, so it is important to understand how that measurement relates to an ounce. While an ounce of marijuana is equivalent to about 28 grams, 14 grams equals half of an ounce of marijuana; 7 grams is equal to a quarter-ounce of cannabis; and 3.5 grams equals an eighth of an ounce.
How Much is One Gram of Cannabis?
A gram of cannabis is basically the smallest amount that can be purchased. One gram is generally equal to the amount of marijuana needed to roll a large joint.
How Much Marijuana is Included in Other Common Measurements?

For example, an eighth of an ounce, or 3.5 grams, is enough to roll three or four sizable joints. This is a popular amount of marijuana for the occasional smoker.
A quarter of an ounce, or 7 grams, is enough to roll seven big joints. A half ounce, or 14 grams, is enough for 14 joints. A full ounce, or 28 grams, is enough to roll 28 sizable joints.
