What Does One Gram of Cannabis Look Like? A Visual Guide to Cannabis Quantities

A gram, eighth, or ounce — what does it all mean?! We’ve all been there. Attempting to make sense of the names associated with different cannabis quantities can be challenging. Central to the confusion is conceptualization of weights, which depend on both product size and density.

If you are new to cannabis, we hope this video and visual guide will provide you with a general framework to wrap your head around the common sale quantities for both flower and concentrates. Keep in mind that these depictions are approximations, given that density varies (at times drastically) between products.

Watch Regina as she gives a visual depiction of the differences in sizes of a cannabis gram, ounce, and everything in between.

For reference (and so you don’t have to press pause in the video), here are how many grams there are in an ounce:

  • 1/8 ounce = 3.5 grams
  • 1/4 ounce = 7 grams
  • 1/2 ounce = 14 grams
  • 1 ounce = 28.35 grams

If you prefer a static resource, here’s a visual guide to cannabis quantities.
