How Much Does a Pound of Weed Cost?

As of 2021, the price of 1 pound of weed can range from around $1,500 to upwards of $2,000 in legalized states. In areas where weed is not legal yet, prices are usually doubled at around $3,000 – $4,000. Lots of people prefer to buy weed in bulky volumes, and for good reasons. It’s much cheaper and saves time —consuming trips to dispensaries. If you have some extra money saved and you run out of eighth-ounces of flower way too quickly, you’ll thank yourself later for investing in a batch of weed by the pound.

How Much Does a Pound of Weed Weigh? 

There are two measurement systems for breaking down the weight of weed by the pound. Since pounds (or lb) are harder to convert, ounces are more often used to determine the cost of weed by its weight. When purchasing small amounts of weed, people often measure their product in grams.

By the Ounce

One pound of weed equals a whopping 16 ounces! That’s a lot of marijuana. For reference, just one of those ounces of weed can be used to roll 28 hefty joints! Because so many joints and bowls can be made from this hefty amount, such a purchase is great for giving your friends some grassy gifts or brightening up any smoke sesh.

By the Gram

A pound of weed contains about 453 grams of weed.

With this much weed, you can roll about 453 one-gram joints, or pack around 1,000 bowls! While this sounds like a lot of weed, daily smokers might find themselves easily finishing a pound over a few months. In fact, the weed will stay fresh if sealed and kept relatively cool. If you’re not a daily user or 453 grams sounds like way too much, you can always start with a quarter pound of cannabis, which equals 113 grams!

Pound of Weed Cost Breakdown

  • 1 pound = 453 grams, or 16 ounces
  • 1 ounce = 28 grams 
  • 1/2 ounce = 14 grams
  • 1/4 ounce = 7 grams
  • 1/8 ounce = 3.5 grams

The average price of an eighth can range from $25 to $60 and up. Since there are 129 eighth-ounces of cannabis in every pound, buying one pound of quality weed at the rate of $40 per eighth would cost over $5,000! As a result, buying more cannabis can save you thousands of dollars over the years. Now that you’ve read up on the going rates and measurements of weed in bulk, soon you’ll be basking in lots of fresh greens!
