Eighth of Weed: Weight in Grams, Prices, & What 1/8 Looks Like

Weight: How Many Grams in an Eighth?

An eighth is 3.5 grams. This comes from the fact that it is 1/8 of an ounce. An ounce is 28 grams. Now, I know a lot of people are going to try and argue with me that an ounce is technically more than 28 grams. While you are correct, it is important to note that cannabis operates on a 28-gram ounce out of simplicity.

Eighths are a popular buying option for individuals who are somewhat regular smokers.  You will almost always get a better price if you buy an eighth instead of a gram at a time. Of course, buying more than an eighth will typically get you an even bigger discount.

Sometimes you’ll hear of someone selling half-eighths, which should be called 1/16 (sixteenth) in my opinion. Although, I will say it’s been a very long time since I’ve heard someone reference an half-eighth. It’s 1.75 grams.

Price for 1/8 of Weed

The price is going to vary greatly depending on your location. With that said, I’ll try to do my best to put a range on the prices you would likely encounter.

At a dispensary, you’re going to pay between $35-50 with select strains costing more. Street prices are tricky. In legal states, the street prices tend to run slightly lower than what you would pay at a dispensary ($25-$40). In illegal states, the street price of 1/8 is typically going to be higher than what you would pay at a dispensary ($40-$60). Some illegal states (especially in small towns) see prices as high as $70. Any more than that is too high of a price as far as I’m concerned.

How much are you paying for an eighth? Let me know in the comment section below. Also, if you want to learn more about the price of different amounts of weed you should check out this article I wrote: How Much Does Weed Cost?

What Does an Eighth of Weed Look Like?

It is really important to remember that not all weed is the same density. That is, some weed is super dense which will make the amount look smaller. Other weed is \ fluffy which looks bigger. This means that not all eights are going to look the same.

With that said I do want to give you a visual guide to an eighth, so here’s a picture of exactly 3.5 grams of weed. I would say this weed is slightly on the denser side of the spectrum. Lighter for scale.

That’s pretty much all I’ve got to say about eighths of weed. Make sure to drop a comment below, and have an awesome day.

  • Cannakween says:

    $25-35 for high quality street 8th in Chicago, IL

    $15-20 for low-mids

    Same high quality 8th will run you $55-70 in a dispensary (if they even have flower) before taxes, which could easily be $10-20 depending on the county and city in Illinois you are buying in. Cook county where Chicago is tends to be on the high side of taxes, as with the “rich” north and northwest Suburbs.

  • SortaEvilGuy says:

    I pay $50.00 to $100.00 for a full ounce total in north east Wisconsin. And its not trash most comes from a plug i have in the upper peninsula michigan all top strains. Other my guy gets in Minnesota. Ive been a weed and drug enthusiasts since I was 13 and was growing my own till i turned 18 but have restarted my old loved hobby since i have legal property in a state that its legal to grow . I am a full blown drug enthusiasts so an ounce will last me a long time and i only ever use weed to enhance my three loves of my life Boy being top love (Heroin afghan and bth), I believe ice(meth)is my second go to due to the low cost and quantity bang i get for my buck, Girl (crack not powder because im not a faggy fake ass drug user from the 80s) being my third wife. I basically lost the ability to do rails from over abuse of all of the above plus add hydro,oxy, ritalin, adderal and xanax more than likely im missing some but w/e. Being where i am now with false teeth in my early thirties if you dont want to end up having to bang which is a whole different kind of addiction altogether i would suggest parachuting or going old fashioned oral consumption.
