Whether you’re a newcomer or a veteran smoker, figuring out how much pot you need can be tricky. There are several factors to consider when you shop at LA dispensaries, like potency, strain, smoking method, and more. Thankfully, we cover everything you need to know to get started in the article below.
How Much Weed Do You Need?
If you’re uninitiated, cannabis typically comes in single grams, eighths (⅛), quarters (¼), halves (½), and full ounces. Besides your budget, you’ll need to consider a few different factors to determine which option is right for you.
How Often Do You Smoke?
As you might expect, you’ll need to purchase higher quantities of weed if you smoke more frequently. For instance, you may need to purchase an eighth or a quarter per week if you’re a daily smoker. On the other hand, an eighth may last you 7-14 days if you’re a newcomer or take days off.
How Do You Consume Cannabis?
Another factor to consider is your preferred consumption method. Rolling blunts and joints can use more marijuana than other methods. It’s possible to use a half-gram or more in each pre-roll, depending on your preference.
Packing bowls or using a vape can use significantly less marijuana. So, you’ll typically need less cannabis per week if you’re using a bong, pipe, or vape. However, this varies depending on the other factors listed.
How Potent Is the Strain and What’s Your Tolerance Level?
You’ll also want to consider the potency of the strain(s) you’re purchasing and your tolerance level. A more potent, cerebral Sativa strain might last you longer than a relaxing Indica. You’ll typically need more cannabis per week if you have a higher tolerance.
Newcomers with lower tolerance levels can benefit from less cannabis. In some cases, a single gram can last a few days, especially if you’re only smoking at night. Be sure to ask one of our expert budtenders if you’re unsure about potency and tolerance ranges.
