Glass bowls vary in size, but on average bowls hold .3 to .5 grams of cannabis. You can get seven half-gram bowls out of an eighth of cannabis. An ounce is 28 grams, which means you’ll get 56 half-gram bowls out of an ounce of weed.
How many hits a bowl will net depends on the size of the hit you take. Everyone inhales differently, so a bowl can last anywhere from 3-8 hits depending on the size of the bowl and how much you and/or those in your sesh inhale. A “10 sack” refers to a bag of weed that costs $10. It usually amounts to about a bowl’s worth of weed. “Dub” is a term that refers to a “twenty sack” of weed. On the unlicensed market, a dub costs $20 and usually contains between 1-2 grams of weed, sometimes more depending on where you get it.
A “25 sack” on the unlicensed market could contain 2.5 grams to 3.5 grams, or an eighth, of weed. How long a quarter ounce of cannabis will last depends largely on the frequency and method of consumption you choose. A ¼ ounce of weed, also known as a “quarter,” is 7 grams.

[Cost + More!] If you are fairly new to the world of marijuana, you are probably beginning to master the etymology of various weed phrases . You understand that an ounce is approximately 28 grams of cannabis, there are 16 ounces in a pound, and you’re unlikely ever to have close to that amount in your possession. You are likely also to know all about quarters and eighths. Alas, there are still terms that are alien to a lot of new users, and in this guide, we explain the meaning of a ‘dime’ of weed, along with a nickel and a dub sack just for the hell of it! As it is a set dollar amount, the quantity of marijuana you’ll receive varies significantly. The cost depends on the popularity and quality of the strain . It is cheaper to get good quality cannabis in Oregon where it is legal (between $200 and $250 per ounce) than in New York where it could be up to double the price. Going by the lower-priced weed in Oregon, a dime bag would be the equivalent of a little over a gram. In the unlikely event that you’ll find someone willing to sell a dime bag of weed, you will get even less because as you know, the price only goes down in relative terms when you make purchases in greater quantities. As you can probably guess, the term ‘dime’ is slang that originates from the currency. After the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937, weed was federally illegal in the United States. For decades, it was necessary to speak about cannabis (or anything else that was illegal) using code when on the phone. Overall, you probably won’t find anyone using the term dime bag in states where the herb has been legalized. If you search long and hard, you might find an old-school dealer who agrees to sell you $10 of weed. However, the majority of dispensaries will sell marijuana per gram. Therefore, you should be able to get at least one gram of marijuana for $10. Once again, however, it depends entirely on where you purchase your pot. For example, you could find a gram of low-quality medical marijuana in Oregon for less than $10. If you go to Washington D.C, a gram of better-quality weed can cost over $18! In Canada, you could get a gram of weed for between $10 and $13 depending on quality.
The advent of legalization means users should be able to find cheaper weed. Now that you understand what a dime of weed is, it becomes much easier to guess the value of a nickel of weed. It is just $5 worth of marijuana, and you are unlikely to find even a gram of marijuana for this price unless it is extremely low-grade schwag. If you’re looking at high-grade Mary Jane, you will struggle to get more than one joint’s worth, especially since federal government experts believe the average joint contains 0.43 grams of weed.
When you consider that the average medical marijuana transaction in Colorado was approximately $80 way back in 2015, it is hard to imagine anyone entering a dispensary and asking for five bucks worth of cannabis! Even in the days when nickel bags were widely available, dealers didn’t make much money from them, so they often mixed the product with cooking herbs such as oregano! This is another old-school term and depicts $20 worth of weed or two dime bags.
