How Much Is A Pound Of Weed?
A pound of weed is more marijuana than most people will smoke in their entire life.
To put some numbers to it, one pound equals 16 ounces. An ounce, for many, is considered quite a bit of weed that will last even a regular smoker a decent amount of time.
There are 28 grams in an ounce, therefore, there are 448 grams in a pound.
Let’s assume packing a bowl or bong takes up .25 of a gram. One pound would get you 1792 smoke sessions.
How long will a pound of weed last?
Let’s lay this out…
For a weekend smoker who only needs a .5 of a gram to get high and smokes twice a weekend, a pound of weed would last 3136 days total or 8.6 years.
That is a long time. At that point, the biggest concern would be making sure that the weed doesn’t get moldy.
What about a daily smoker?
Let’s assume a daily smoker smokes about an ounce per month. A pound of weed would last roughly 16 months total.
How much is a pound of weed to Snoop Dogg?
In a Reddit AMA Snoop claims that he smoke 81 blunts a day. Since we know Snoop doesn’t mess around, let’s assume he’s rolling 1 gram blunts.
This means he smokes 567 blunts in a week. If he wasn’t joking, this means that Snoop is smoking more than a pound of weed in a week. That’s insane. The fact he is still able to operate while consuming that much marijuana is beyond me.
How Much Does A Pound Of Weed Cost?
A pound of weed can greatly vary depending on where you live, if it is legal or on the black market, and most importantly, the quality.
A top-shelf pound of weed will typically run upwards of $5,000. This comes out to about $312 per ounce.
Typically pounds on the black market run anywhere from $1500 – $3000.
Let’s assume someone buys a pound for $2000. That comes out to $125 an ounce. Not a bad deal whatsoever depending on where you live.
Who Buys Pounds Of Weed?
Even if you live in a legal state you can’t just walk up and buy a pound of weed from a dispensary. In many legalized states, you are able to purchase up to one ounce at a time. So who actually buys pounds?
Back in the old days the only people buying pounds of weed were high up dealers and distributors. With legalization swooping over the U.S., dispensary owners are purchasing multiple pounds at a time to meet demand.
