For all the newbies out there that finally got the hang of all the terms that weeds have, it’s time to learn about the measurements for when you actually purchase weed. All of us here know that learning the measurements is not the easiest task in the world. Now you’ll know what exactly a dime of weed, one eight weed or even a dub of weed means. Keep in mind that these are just some of the terms and you’ll encounter more once you actually buy weed.
- Eighth of weed – a typical eighth of weed is 3.5 grams since it’s an eighth of an ounce; thus the term. But you won’t always get that exact amount when you buy an eighth, it heavily depends on the dealer if you get a good deal or end up swindled.
- Dime bags or Dime Weed – this is a general slang term for weed worth $10 or something close to that. Way back when, a quarter ounce or 7 grams of weed would only cost you $10. An eighth of weed would cost around $5, thus the origin of the terms nickel bag and dime bag.
- Dub weed or Dub Sack – basically, a dub sack is $20 worth of weed, but it highly depends on the quality of what you’re buying. Low quality weed would cost you $20 for every 3 grams, on the other hand good quality weed would be worth $20 a gram.
- Ounce of Weed – the smallest amount of weed that you can purchase, it’s equivalent to 28 grams and would cost you about $10 in most places. It’s great if you can get a supplier that would offer some sort of discount when you purchase large amounts; keep in mind that you will encounter suppliers that give you underweighted products.
