It’s good to be an educated buyer in the Seattle recreational cannabis market. The more one is familiarized with the product and ways it is distributed, the faster and easier your transactions at weed retailers will be! Keep in mind that density plays a huge role in the visual aspect of cannabis quantities. Below Trees Pot Shop has listed some common weights legal weed is sold in Washington State.

Gram: What does one gram look like? A gram is usually a little bigger than a bottle cap.

How long will a gram last? Grams are usually the smallest amount of pot one would buy. It’s a standard purchase if you only desire a single bowl or a joint. If you’re trying to roll up a big blunt with 2-3 friends, a gram will do you just fine. While you’re rolling up, order a pizza for delivery from Little Caesar’s on 7th and Holman.

Eighth (3.5 Grams): What does an ‘eighth’ of weed look like? In accordance with its namesake, this is ⅛ of an ounce. An eighth will appear to be a volume approximately the size of a pointer finger.

Regular consumers who like to test different strains are also inclined to buy eighths as opposed to larger amounts to create variety. Planning a weekend of rolling joints with friends? Buy an eighth, and buy it from Trees Pot Shop! Our budtender will be prepared to offer the newest and most exciting strains.

Quarter (7 Grams): A quarter is ¼ of an ounce. If you’re true to your strain and don’t often stray, a quarter might be a good amount for you. That way, you run out of your favorite products less quickly. Award-winning strains like Artizen’s Dutchberry are commonly bought in higher quantities, because of their popularity.

Half (14 Grams): A half is ½ of an ounce. Depending on your tolerance, a half ounce can last a regular smoker a little under 2 weeks and a weekend warrior over a month.

Ounce (28 Grams): An ounce is great for an everyday smoker and can last them about a month. For the weekender, with zero help from friends, this could last you about 6 weeks. Buying in quantities this large makes sense for those who regularly host larger events (with people of age) like watching Friday night football the next episode of Game of Thrones.
