Hemp Scale

Getting started with cannabis can be confusing, especially when dosing and purchasing the right amount of flower you need. Walking into a dispensary and asking questions like how many grams are in an ounce of cannabis will make you look like a novice, sometimes destroying your confidence and leading to you buying way more or less than you need. Finding the correct answers to questions like this when starting your cannabis journey is essential, so you acquire and consume the right amount of cannabis flower.

In this article, we’ll help you understand the standard measurement units of cannabis and determine which amounts are right for you. We’ll also explain the ounce – the primary cannabis unit, which currently is the maximum amount of recreational marijuana consumers can lawfully purchase or hold in states where recreational marijuana use is permitted.

How is Cannabis Measured?

The Eighth System

If you are transitioning from the illicit marijuana market to the legal, like many people out there, chances are you only know the famous eighth system. The smallest amount of marijuana in the eighth system is the eighth, while the largest measuring amount is the whole. Dealers usually sell marijuana in the eighth, half, quarter, whole, and now you walk into a dispensary and see cannabis products in ounces and grams. That’s when things get confusing. How many eighths are in there? And what do these eights, halves, quarters, refer to anyway? Unless you’ve ever returned home and put your dealers’ eighths on a measurement scale, you might not know how to interpret the legal measurement units, but don’t worry. It’s way simpler than it sounds.

In the famous eighth system, eighth, halves, quarters, and whole refer to the amount of weed in ounces. One eighth is 1/8 of one ounce; half is 1/2 of an ounce, etc. One ounce is 28 grams, so one-eighth is 3.5 grams of flower – enough to roll three or four solid joints.

Eight System to Grams and Ounces

Eight System Grams Ounces
Whole 28 grams 1 ounce
One-half 14 grams 1/2 ounce
One-quarter 7 grams 1/4 ounce
One-eighth 3.5 grams 1/8 ounce

Ounce

As Americans, we always think twice or several times before we understand how different measurements translate to the metric system, and cannabis is no exception. The U.S. remains one of the few countries worldwide still using the imperial system using feet, inches, pounds, ounces to measure things. In the Imperial system, the smallest measurement of weight is an ounce. In the metric system, however, it’s the gram, which is 28 times smaller than an ounce, allowing a more precise measurement for cannabis flower. For example, one-eighth of cannabis is about 3.5 grams, and each joint needs about one gram of cannabis. Now that would be impossible for cannabis consumers to measure only with ounces and remain collectively sane.

In an ounce, there are 28 grams of cannabis, which, when you smoke, only a joint per day will last about a month, or longer if you smoke only a few bowls per week.

One ounce of cannabis is usually the maximum recreational amount you can legally purchase at a time, depending on the laws in your state. Experienced cannabis consumers who already have picked their favorite cannabis strains usually save money by buying an ounce of cannabis. Newbies prefer experimenting with different strains and purchasing smaller amounts at first.

Pounds

Pounds or 1lb of marijuana is usually used to measure large quantities of cannabis for retail purposes. One pound of marijuana equals 16 ounces and 450 grams, which will last for more than a year if you roll a joint every day. However, pounds are not used for consumer purposes, as most state laws don’t allow purchasing more than 1-2 ounces of marijuana, even for medical purposes.

Grams

The gram — sometimes called a dime bag on the illicit market, is the smallest measurement unit for cannabis you can buy. A single gram of marijuana is enough for a joint and will pack two or three average-size bowls. By appearance, one gram is almost the size of one hazelnut but measuring cannabis bud without a scale is impossible. However, one fluffy bud can weigh the same as a smaller compact one, so dispensaries will always use scales to determine precise weights of cannabis in grams.

How Many Grams Are in a Single Joint?

Although most regular experienced consumers roll a gram in a single joint, a study in 2010 determined the most common content of joint as 0.66 grams. Even though scientists might be close to the accurate number, there is no single amount to roll a joint. It depends on numerous factors, including consumers’ experience, whether smoking alone or in a group setting, the strain used, its THC content, etc.

Using one gram of cannabis for one joint makes it easier to do the math and is a popular amount to use. Still, if you are only getting started, it’s best to start with a smaller amount, closer to what science has suggested.

How to buy the right amount of cannabis?

Now that you are more familiar with the measurement units, you might wonder what the right amount of cannabis is to buy.

First things first, you probably won’t be lawfully allowed to buy more than one ounce of cannabis, so you won’t walk into a dispensary asking for a pound of marijuana. However, if you’re buying hemp flower, you can buy as much as you want. Secondly, the amount you buy significantly depends on your goals and preferences.

Are you willing to make several trips to the store per week or want to buy enough to last for weeks or months? Contrary to popular belief in choosing and stocking up on one cannabis strain, we believe it’s usually better to experiment with different strains even when you are a seasoned cannabis user.

That’s because not all strains provide the same flavors, aromas, and effects due to their varying potencies. For example, one day, you might feel like you want to smoke O.G. Kush, and the next day you might feel in the mood for gelato, and if you have an ounce of weed at home, you might not have enough budget left for other strains.

When you need cannabis for an upcoming party, or you want to save money buying larger quantities, it’s best to buy it in ounces. Some stores sell pre-rolls, and they are a convenient and easy way to try out different cannabis strains until you find the one to include in your routine.

topical cream

CBD-infused topicals are storming the CBD market, and it’s hard not to want to try one of the trending products. But if you’ve tried them before and haven’t had the results you desired, you may be asking yourself how you can tell if your topicals are really working.

According to the 2019 US Insider Consumer report, 58.1% of CBD consumers use CBD for aches and discomfort. A 2019 report from the Arthritis Foundation also found that 79% of surveyed patients had considered using CBD or had already used it. Among those using CBD, 55% used a topical product applied to the joints.

If you also want to try CBD for relief, CBD topicals are the best choice. That’s because as a topical product, they won’t need to go to your bloodstream to provide an effect. Rather they work in a localized area on the surface of the body. Besides, CBD topicals, based on their formula, usually combine numerous beneficial natural ingredients that help soothe skin and joints much quicker than oral supplements. However, like any other CBD products on the current market, they are of different quality and do not all provide the same effects.

Although it’s exciting to introduce a new product in your self-care routine, now you might wonder if topicals are really working for you once you have already applied to your skin or if you’re only experiencing the placebo effect. Here’s everything you need to know to help you understand whether topicals work for you.

Factors that Affect the Efficacy of CBD Topicals

A Product’s Quality

As mentioned above, not all CBD products, including topicals, are of the same quality. So even though your CBD consumer friends might have already experienced noticeable results from CBD, you might not feel the same if your CBD product is of low quality. Unfortunately, the CBD market is full of unreliable brands making unproven claims about their products.

A preliminary study by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2020 found many CBD products had different CBD amounts than advertised. The CBD dosage is one of the most crucial factors in determining the effectiveness of CBD for both oral and topical products.

If the topical you are using has low amounts of CBD than what’s indicated on the label, it might not provide desired effects. Moreover, low-grade products may contain harmful ingredients like heavy metals and pesticides, so always look for third-party lab test results before buying CBD topicals. Test results can confirm the quality and pureness of a product.

Dosage

The amount of CBD in the product is another factor impacting its effectiveness. Although there’s no universal CBD amount to apply to experience its effects, many products come in varying CBD potencies to allow you to see which amount works best for you.

Product Type

Nowadays, there are numerous options for CBD topicals. Although some might suit your muscles and joints, others are better suited for a skincare routine, such as CBD moisturizers or products for overall body relaxation like CBD bath bombs. The best CBD topicals for discomfort are CBD salves and roll-ons you can use in a specific body area.

How Do I Know If Topicals Are Working?

You Feel the Immediate Effects

Even before CBD penetrates your skin, additional ingredients in many CBD topicals like menthol or eucalyptus will provide a cooling sensation on your skin and provide you with immediate short-term relief after application.

You Feel the Difference

It’s difficult not to notice the difference when you deal with discomfort and suddenly feel relief. However, if you haven’t experienced any notable outcomes from CBD topicals, it might indicate they don’t work for you, or perhaps the product you’re using isn’t of the highest quality.

When Topicals Aren’t Working

Your skin doesn’t absorb the product.

CBD in topicals works by interacting with ECS receptors under the skin. The interaction will be impossible if CBD doesn’t penetrate your skin. Still, many products on the market use formulations that are too difficult for your skin to absorb, and thus they can be less effective. On the other hand, many products use beneficial natural ingredients to help with penetration, like menthol and eucalyptus.

You do not see any difference.

If you do not see any immediate or long-term results even after using CBD topical regularly, it can mean the product isn’t working for you. In this case, you might want to consider switching to other CBD topical.

How to choose an effective CBD topical that will work?

The outcomes you experience from a CBD topical product will significantly depend on which product you choose. The best way to ensure you invest in a safe and effective product is to shop from reliable brands that provide information about their product, including where their hemp grows. CBD’s quality is greatly affected by its source, and when hemp grows in contaminated land, it will bring unwanted ingredients into the product. Shop from brands that offer a certificate of analysis (COA) for their products per batch. Third-party lab tests determine the ingredients in the product and help you see if it’s safe and will drive desired effects.

Additionally, check the other ingredients besides CBD and ensure there are no artificial preservatives or ingredients like paraben. A high-quality CBD topical will combine hemp-derived CBD with natural, beneficial ingredients that provide their own benefits and help CBD penetrate the skin to interact with ECS receptors.

Finally, choose the products designed for relief. Although CBD is the primary active ingredient for all CBD topicals, they combine various other natural ingredients depending on what they are intended to target. For example, CBD topicals for discomfort usually contain soothing ingredients like menthol, eucalyptus, or lavender, so once applied, these ingredients work synergically with CBD to provide effects.

Tolerance Bridge

We get used to good things quite quickly, and so do our bodies.

If one or two puffs would do in the past, now it seems like the whole joint isn’t enough to experience the same effects. So when cannabis suddenly isn’t working the same way it used to, and now you need higher doses to experience the desired results, it indicates you are dealing with a high tolerance, which leads to weaker effects of cannabis.

High tolerance means that you need to consume more to drive the same results you once did with a lower amount. It can become an issue, especially when using cannabis for specific benefits.

Luckily, high tolerance isn’t permanent, and you can use a few methods to reset your tolerance, so you will need to consume less to achieve your goals.

How Does Cannabis Tolerance Develop?

Cannabis tolerance develops due to long-term regular use. The reason behind that is the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in the human body. The ECS is how marijuana delivers its psychoactive effects in the body, in particular, by activating ECS receptors in the brain. There are two types of ECS receptors – CB1 and CB2. They transmit information in the body once activated, and the key to them is cannabinoids in marijuana.

The reason behind marijuana’s psychoactive effects is its psychoactive cannabinoid – tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC works by binding to the CB1 ECS receptor in the brain. It’s almost like a key that unlocks the receptor to activate it and produce marijuana’s intoxicating effects.

When the interaction happens too often, CB1 receptor activity decreases, lowering THC’s impact on the body. That’s when you suddenly need to consume more to experience the same effects as before.

Tolerance develops differently for every consumer depending on numerous factors, including:

  • Your body chemistry
  • Frequency of cannabis use
  • The potency of cannabis you consume (THC content)

Even when you develop tolerance to THC, the condition isn’t temporary, and there are ways to bring CB1 activity back to its normal levels.

A few methods below can help if you’ve developed cannabis tolerance and are searching for ways to reset it.

Take a ‘T break’ if You Can

One of the most common methods to reset cannabis tolerance is to take a break from using it. It will allow your CB1 receptors to restore to their normal activity levels so that you can experience the same outcomes from lower THC amounts. These cannabis breaks are called T breaks, short for tolerance breaks.

The length of each break is up to you, and the time it takes to recover CB1 receptor activity ranges across consumers depending on their history of cannabis use and how far they’ve gone into its tolerance. It may take only 1-2 weeks for some, but commonly you’ll need at least 21 days to reset your tolerance. If you still don’t feel the desired effects from cannabis after your T break, consider lengthening it.

Although effective, T breaks aren’t feasible for some consumers when using cannabis for specific benefits, so they’re looking for other strategies to help. Some of the methods besides T breaks include:

Cannabinoid Cycling

Luckily, as science keeps unraveling the cannabis plants, now we are more aware of the cannabis products we consume, including their cannabinoid levels. Regular cannabis consumers and millions of wellness enthusiasts have already heard about CBD, and it’s another famous cannabinoid in the cannabis plant. But, unlike THC, it doesn’t bind to CB1 receptors, cause psychoactive effects or result in cannabis tolerance.

Commonly, marijuana strains are high in THC and low in CBD content. One of the effective ways to reset your cannabis tolerance is to switch between high THC and low CBD strains to high CBD and low THC strains, also known as cycling.

Switching between high CBD and high THC strains will allow you to reset your tolerance without taking a T break but opting for a lesser psychoactive cannabis experience. Plus, while consuming CBD-rich strains, you’ll be less likely to experience withdrawal symptoms.

CBD won’t cause psychoactive side effects, but if you don’t want to give up THC altogether, many dispensaries and retailers offer products ranging from 1-to-1 CBD to THC ratio to as high as 16-to-1.

At The Hemp Doctor, we offer gummies with blends of Delta 9 THC with Delta 8 THC, CBD, and CBN to provide you with a full spectrum hemp-derived product.

Control Your THC Intake

Although you might want to experience a more potent high and ingest higher THC doses, the more often you do so, the less potent effects you will experience from THC in the long run. In contrast, the less THC you ingest, the less likely you will develop cannabis tolerance, so use the lower doses, just enough to experience desired effects.

Reduce the Frequency

Although you might feel the urge to use cannabis frequently, heavy regular use is the primary reason for developing tolerance to cannabis. One of the most effective ways to prevent cannabis tolerance is to reduce the frequency of consumption. Small gaps like a few days between consumption can help reset your tolerance and bring your CB1 receptor activity back to normal levels. Preventative strategies like this will also allow you to avoid unwanted consequences in the future, like experiencing withdrawal symptoms during T breaks.

Expect Potential Withdrawal Symptoms

Unfortunately, resetting your cannabis tolerance comes with obstacles, sometimes with withdrawal symptoms during T breaks or when using less cannabis than usual.

Although it might not be as intense as withdrawal from alcohol pr tobacco, Cannabis withdrawal can still get quite irritating.

According to studies, cannabis withdrawal symptoms commonly include:

  • Mood Swings
  • Anxiety
  • Decreased appetite/weight loss,
  • Restlessness
  • Sleep difficulty/strange dreams

Depressed mood, stomach pain/nausea, shakiness, and sweating are less frequent but possible in rare cases. Most symptoms begin within 24 hours of abstaining, peak within 2-3 days, and linger for approximately 1-2 weeks.

Some ways to ease the symptoms are getting enough rest, staying hydrated, and exercising.

Prevention

Some say an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure, so once you’ve reset your tolerance, you might not want to go through the process again. Rather, find ways to prevent building it in the first place.

Some of the techniques to prevent it from happening include:

  • Using less potent THC products. The higher are THC amounts in the product, the more likely you are to develop tolerance after regular use.
  • Reduce the frequency of cannabis consumption, as the more frequently you use, the higher are the chances of developing tolerance.
  • Lower the doses and try consuming less cannabis in one sitting
  • Try hemp-derived products like CBD. Unlike THC, it doesn’t cause psychoactive effects or cause tolerance. CBD strains might fill the gap when taking T breaks and avoiding consuming too much cannabis.

curing hemp

While harvesting and extracting cannabis extracts from hemp are the most discussed topics in hemp production, the most overlooked step between these two is crucial in cannabis cultivation. This is properly drying and curing the hemp flower to prepare it for production — whether it’s destined for gummies, prerolls, or tinctures this step is a must.

Properly curing and drying hemp in a well-ventilated, climate-controlled area is what allows manufacturers to produce more potent and flavorful hemp flowers.

Why is Drying and Curing Hemp Important?

Harvesting hemp is what makes hemp farmers feel stomach butterflies. Finally, after a year, their hard work pays off, and they realize the fruits of the labor. However, before the hemp moves to the extraction process, it needs to go through a crucial step: drying and curing.

Drying and curing hemp flowers is vital for preserving compounds like cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes. Therefore, hemp flower needs to be dried and cured like tobacco leaves before being ready for market.

After harvesting, hemp contains up to 80% moisture, and drying is essential to preserve cannabinoids before the extraction process, per research published in the American Journal of Plant Sciences (AJPS).

Moreover, hemp’s aromatic compounds – terpenes – are volatile under high heat, and slow drying under controlled temperatures allows preserving them and enriching strains with different tastes and smells.

Curing hemp has numerous benefits, including turning blunt hemp flowers into beautiful buds, providing a smooth and tasteful smoke. In addition, the curing process allows byproducts like sugar to degrade. Therefore, the hemp flower offers smooth and pleasant smoke instead of unpleasant flavors post-curing.

Most importantly, curing hemp increases potency and allows different cannabinoids like CBD to reach desired concentrations. Besides, curing also clears buds from mold and bacteria.

Drying Hemp Flower

The drying process comes right after harvesting the hemp. Farmers put the hemp in a well-ventilated climate-controlled area for 10-13 days until the hemp loses moisture. Hemp should remain in a dry place with humidity ranging between 50-60% and temperatures of 60 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit. The drying area should have several fans running to provide airflow to preserve the flavor and aroma of the hemp.

Curing Hemp

Once hemp is dried, it is ready for curing, essential to producing high-quality, potent hemp.

Farmers cure hemp in a dark place because light exposure can degrade aromatic terpenes crucial for high-quality hemp. High heat also degrades hemp compounds and reduces its potency. That’s why hemp is cured in a climate-controlled area.

And finally, humidity is also a crucial factor in the process, so farmers control the humidity in the area to produce the finest product.

Step 1:

Curing hemp begins with preparing flowers. Sometimes farmers dry buds and branches together, and if so, now it’s the perfect time to separate them either by hand or using a machine to free flowers from leaves.

Step 2:

At this step, buds will be placed in a wide-mouth airtight container like glass jars so that growers can monitor the buds in the process, but they can also use metal, wood, ceramic, or plastic containers. Buds shouldn’t be clumped together and should only fill 75% of the jar to leave enough room for air.

Step 3:

Farmers place the jars with hemp buds in a dark room to avoid cannabinoid degradation, with temperatures between 60- and 70-degrees Fahrenheit and humidity levels ranging between 45 and 55 percent. In addition, most farmers put a hygrometer inside the jars to easily monitor these conditions. In only a day, the moisture inside the buds will hydrate its outer layers, and it will no longer be crispy and dry from the outside.

Step 4:

Farmers check the buds twice daily for the first week to look for mold. They also open the lids of the jars for several minutes to allow ventilation. If the buds remain too dry, which is common when overdried, farmers will keep jars sealed for more extended periods. If buds still don’t moisten outside layers, farmers can put a humidity pack inside the jars.

Step 5:

The final curing step lasts for up to six weeks. Farmers continue monitoring the buds daily and maintaining required humidity levels. The buds are usually ready for consumption after three weeks, but four to eight weeks of curing will significantly improve the quality of buds.

Takeaway

Although it would be exciting to consume hemp right after harvesting, just like freshly picked apples, unfortunately, it needs to take a long road before being ready for consumption. Still, it’s the best way to ensure its potency and effectiveness. Drying and curing hemp are crucial steps to produce the highest quality, and although they take much longer than harvesting, the outcomes are worth the wait.

Junk Food

What we call the munchies, the enhanced appetite, is sometimes the best and most pleasing side effect of smoking cannabis. But only when it doesn’t become a recurring issue for a regular cannabis smoker watching calories and trying to take off some extra pounds. So how do you deal with them? Marijuana is an appetite stimulant, and if you find that it negatively impacts you, you must find a way to control and prevent munchies, and below are tips to help.

Why Does Marijuana Give You Munchies?

Before we head to the ways of dealing with munchies, you might first want to know the reason behind marijuana-induced hunger and why suddenly your roommate’s leftover lasagna is suddenly so tasty.

First, don’t worry. Most consumers have experienced munchies at some point, and that’s among the most common side effects of marijuana, so if you suddenly feel like starving after smoking cannabis, it’s not unusual.

Munchies will attack once cannabinoids are absorbed in the bloodstream and interact with the endocannabinoid (ECS) receptors in the brain and body. That’s why you suddenly feel hungry. However, not all cannabis plants induce hunger. Hemp, for instance, doesn’t cause munchies, and that’s because the primary reason behind marijuana’s appetite-stimulating effects is THC – the psychoactive cannabinoid.

THC’s interaction with CB1 receptors in the endocannabinoid system (ECS) is the reason for sudden munchie attacks. According to one study in mice by a team of European neuroscientists, THC fits into the brain’s olfactory bulb’s receptors and significantly increases animals’ ability to smell food. The stronger odor processing explains why everything tastes so great after smoking cannabis – you can smell and taste food more acutely. So, it’s like listening to music on a high-quality speaker when you suddenly hear individual parts and instruments in the song – if you are a music lover, you’ll want to hear more, and the same goes for munchies and food.

Although common, not all cannabis consumers get munchies, especially regular heavy users. Those who generally respond to hunger episodes, start by eating everything in sight, with a craving for unhealthy snacks or fast food foods, delivered straight to their door. However, when you don’t take control of regular munchies, it can become a significant issue and the reason for undesired weight gain.

If this is you, you might want to find a way out of munchie attacks, and here are some tips to help.

Smoke on a Full Stomach

One of the easiest ways not to overindulge in snacks and foods once the munchies strike is to eat a filling meal before smoking cannabis. Although you’ll still experience munchies on a full stomach, they might be less intense. Plus, you’ll know what you’re experiencing isn’t actual hunger, rather than cravings due to marijuana’s appetite-stimulating properties. Thus, you might be able to resist the munchie attacks.

Keep Unhealthy Food Away

One of the reasons you binge eat food after smoking is because you have a lot of it. If a bag of chips is right there in your pantry, then chances are, you’ll impulsively eat the whole bag. It doesn’t mean you need to toss away all the food, and that’s impossible, especially when you don’t live alone, but try to keep unhealthy food away from your home. If you want to keep the sweet snacks, for good reasons like your kids, or others in the home, put a lock on the pantry and give it to the non-stoner!!

Prepare Healthy Snacks

Regardless of what we say, when munchies strike, you might not remember most of the tips you’ve just read and will want to have a good meal after smoking. However, it’s not necessarily bad if you have a healthy meal or healthy snacks prepared beforehand. If all you can find at home is a salad, dried fruit, nuts, fresh fruits, and vegetables, or other healthy foods, there’ll be nothing to feel guilty about, and at the same time, you will provide your body with various nutrients and vitamins.

Distract Yourself

For many consumers, food tastes more flavorful, but other activities also became more amusing once high on cannabis. Therefore, rewatching some old films, playing games with friends, listening to music, or even doing crafts can help you pivot your brain from hunger and distract yourself so that you forget about your munchies and resist the urge to eat.

Switch Between Strains

Not all cannabis strains provide the same effects, and while one can induce an incredible hunger, others might not cause the same irresistible munchies. These varying effects are due to THC and CBD concentrations in different strains. Experimenting with different strains can help you determine which ones are better to avoid if munchies have become your reoccurring problem.

Usually higher the THC content, the stronger the munchies are, so if you want to avoid overeating after smoking, try cannabis strains with lower THC amounts.

Try the Hemp-Derived Alternative to Delta 9 THC – Delta 8 THC at The Hemp Doctor!

Hemp-derived cannabinoid, Delta 8 THC produces similar effects to THC in marijuana. Still, its lower psychoactive potency results in a milder high. It might not cause the same munchies as marijuana, so it can be another option if the increased hunger is getting in the way of enjoying the cannabis experience.

Per federal law, hemp-derived products, including Delta 8 THC smokables and vaporizers, contain only 0.3% THC. At The Hemp Doctor, we are dedicated to creating only the highest quality hemp-derived Delta 8 THC products from U.S.-grown hemp.
