Another option is to download a scale app on your smartphone. Just be aware they’re not as accurate as a physical scale, so if you’re concerned with knowing exactly how many grams are in your ounce of weed, this isn’t going to be your best bet. The information contained in this site is provided for informational purposes only, and should not be construed as medical or legal advice. Legalized cannabis is spreading its way across the nation, and whether you’re new to smoking, you’re returning to it after several years of abstinence, or you’re used to black market purchases and you’re interested in checking out a legal dispensary, you might be wondering – how much does weed cost?
The answer to this question can vary greatly depending on where you happen to live. But for all practical purposes, we can give you a general idea. Let’s break down into separate quantities, and list out how much you can expect to pay for each: A single pre-rolled joint or blunt. The cost of a pre-roll depends on the quantity and quality of the bud going in it, but for a joint, you can usually expect to pay between $3 and $7, or maybe $10 to $15 for really high-end stuff. Blunt are significantly larger, so they tend to start out at around $25 and can run up to $50 or even more. Generally, the smallest amount you can buy loose, a gram will cost anywhere from $8 to $20. 2 Grams, aka a “Twenty” Experienced stoners will call 2 grams a “twenty” out of habit due to old black market prices, but that number no longer has much meaning. 3.5 Grams, aka an “Eighth” While it was named during the black market days, and eighth is still an eighth because it’s just that – 1/8th of an ounce.
Traditionally, these were also called “forties” as they usually cost $40, but these days they can cost as low as $35 and as much as $60. 7 Grams, aka a “Quarter” A quarter of an ounce brings us into bulk price territory, and can range anywhere from $60 to $150, depending on quality. 14 Grams, aka a “Half” At a half ounce, the bulk prices can really start getting cheap. They can range anywhere from $90 to $200, but they usually clock in at around $130. Ounces are essentially the base measurement for weed. They tend to be around $230 to $240, though they can dip as low as $200 and shoot upwards of $300. This guide will get you started for all practical purposes. But again, these prices will vary greatly from state to state, city to city, and even store to store. Growing up, my mother was (and still is) a big stoner, so I’ve never been concerned with getting caught green-handed at home. However, throughout the years I’ve exercised discretion while getting high in hotels and dorms, at the Waffle House, during concerts, in the middle of the disco, at the company holiday party, in the basement of my friend’s house paranoid on acid, in the stairwell of a music studio in midtown Manhattan, in the hot tub of the Ritz-Carlton at 2 a.m. before being escorted out by security…I could go on for days. Needless to say, learning to be a stealthy stoner is a bright idea. When toking on the down low, you want easy access to everything you could possibly need. I recommend putting together a stash bag, like one from the AnnaBís collection, full of essentials: breath mints, gum, eye drops, fragrance oil, miniature air freshener, moist toilettes, lighter, matches, poker or paper clip, pipe cleaners, one-hitter, cannabis, etc. Whatever you do, don’t smoke a blunt or a joint because the smoke is uncontrollable and you will get busted. Instead, use a bowl with a lid like the Proto Pipe or a one-hitter. Or skip combustion all together and vaporize your cannabis. CO2 vape oil pens and portable dry leaf vaporizers like the PAX 2 are super discreet, extremely convenient and easy to hide. Plus, the vapors emitted are much tamer and the odor is subtle. It’ll give off more aroma than your plumes of vapor. The sweet and pungent aroma of cheeba is easily recognizable.
You’ll want to mask or eliminate the odor the best you can. First, close all vents and block the draft under your door. You can use a towel for the door, but I prefer a draft stopper because it looks less sketchy. Scented candles, incense, and air sanitizers are helpful, too. In college, I perfected the art of smoking through a spoof and never got caught. Make your own by taking an empty toilet paper or paper towel roll and taping a folded drier sheet on one end. Simply, exhale into the open end for fresh-laundry-scented smoke.
Or, you can buy one of these handy personal smoke filters: Smoke Buddy, Sploofy or Snubbz.
