weed buying guide

A dime bag is usually the smallest increment of marijuana that you can purchase. As mentioned earlier, it’s standardized as a gram of marijuana. However, if you’ve ever found yourself buying cannabis in a not so legal setting, you probably know that people mean different things when they say dime bag.

If you’re just venturing into the world of cannabis you are probably a little bit surprised by just how much math is involved in the process. Even the best marijuana strains are generally measured within the context of an ounce.

How much does a gram cost in Colorado and California

Again, for context, that means we are looking at roughly ten blunts or twelve to fifteen joints. And of course, if you like to smoke out of glassware or bongs, the amount of use you get will really be subjective to how you pack your bowls.

Of course, you can purchase marijuana in smaller increments, via a gram at a time, or you can purchase in bulk. For example, an eighth (one eight of an ounce, 3.5 grams) usually costs significantly less than buying three grams of marijuana separately.

For lower quality bud, you can expect to pay between $150-220 an ounce. For top shelf marijuana, you’re looking at prices ranging from $240-$280. Private reserve kush will range over $280+ an ounce.

Effects are felt in 1-2 hours and can last several hours.

Possession limits

Now that you have more of an idea about what you want to buy. Let’s talk about how much you should take, how long will it take before you will feel the effects, how long will it last, and how much you can possess.

30 grams of flower | 5 grams of concentrates | 500 milligrams of marijuana-infused products (like edibles)

The effectiveness of a marijuana strain will be dependent on your personal response and sensitivity to the chemical makeup of the product. There is limited information on the side effects of using marijuana products, and there may be associated health risks.

Smoke & Vape

If you haven’t bought marijuana since college, things have changed. Today it’s all about picking a variety that gives you the sensation you want with the flavors and aromas most enjoy. “You don’t have to trust some dude to tell you it’s strong,” says David Drake, founder of CannabisReports.com. One of the best things about legalization is that it’s brought transparency to weed transactions. “Most sellers are treating both the plant and the customer very respectfully,” says Drake, meaning that like a good bartender, most “bud tenders” are happy to walk newbies through their choices. And you have a lot of choices. Currently, Cannabis Reports is tracking 8,000 different varieties of marijuana, including strains from as far away as Afghanistan and Thailand. He compares each of these strains to wine varietals: While Oregon pinots boast a certain terroir, so too does sativa from Mexico. Follow these basic guidelines for a high that feels good and a product that pleases your senses.
