There are two main measurement systems; the imperial and metric systems and in the United States, we tend to favor the former. In the metric system, the gram is the base unit. In the imperial system, ounces and pounds are used. When buying cannabis, you tend to concern yourself with grams and ounces, but not pounds. Why?

There are of course 16 ounces in a pound, but a lot of people seem to get the precise measurements completely incorrect. You will often hear someone say that there are 28 grams in an ounce, for example. Since there are 16 ounces in a pound, there must be 448 grams in a pound (28 x 16), right?

WRONG!… Or maybe not.

Following is a list of the official imperial measurement system, and its most popular conversions (memorizing the lists will make jumping around from ounce to pound that much easier if – or when – you need to do it in real life).

How Many Grams in a Pound?


All things considered, most daily marijuana users will know (and have memorized) the following conversions from grams to lb, etc. And if you end up being in the “weed game” for any amount of time, these numbers will become as routine as knowing your social security number or cell phone number:

1 gram = 0.00220461 pounds
1 pound = 453.592 grams
1 ounce = 28.3495 grams
In the world of weed, however, the answer is not quite as straightforward as most dealers (and even some dispensaries) will round off to the nearest tenth. The ‘unofficial’ weed measuring system will look something like this:

An Eighth: 3.5 grams
A Fifth: 5.6 grams
A Quarter: 7 grams
A Half: 14 grams
An Ounce: 28 grams
A Pound: 448 grams

A Good Scale Will Tell You How Many Oz in a Pound… And MUCH More

While it’s great to have a kick-butt “super scale” that could accurately decipher a proper oz in-lb conversion ratio for a massive marijuana transaction, it’s much more realistic to have one that consistently (and accurately) measures grams.

In fact, there’s no getting around the fact of needing a scale that measures in grams. When shopping for a good one, you’ll want to choose a product capable of measuring to at least 0.1 of a gram, if not 0.01. 1/100 of a gram is overkill, but it does help guarantee accuracy.

Secondly, pick a scale with a maximum capacity of at least 200 grams. This equates to around seven ounces. Better yet, scales with a one-kilogram capacity (1,000 grams) can weigh up to 36 ounces or a little over two pounds of weed. For scales with larger maxes, make sure the measuring platform is large.

The majority of scales are battery powered so if you intend on weighing your weed regularly, it might be prudent to choose one that plugs into a wall socket. Given the low cost of scales, there is no need to compromise. You can find a pocket scale with a 1,000-gram capacity with accuracy to within 0.1 grams for under $10 on Amazon!

Although scales come with instructions, you shouldn’t need much guidance. Switch it on by pressing the power button and set the scale to 0.0 by pressing the ‘tare’ or ‘zero’ button. You must always ensure the scale is calibrated before you use it. To be fair, most scales come with calibration weights but this isn’t always the case. When in doubt, place a nickel on the scale. If it doesn’t weigh 5.0 grams, the scale is inaccurate.

Will You Ever Really Need to Know How Many Ounces Are in a Pound?

Consider this: outside of TV or the movies, have you ever really heard of “average” people needing to know how many ozs are in a pound?

And by any standards, most average individuals should probably know (and have memorized) the fact that there is 16 oz in an lb. Knowing your oz per pound conversions is indeed a convenient tool to have, but in all reality, there’s probably not much practical use for it — unless you’re a commercial grower or doing something like operating a dispensary.

That depends on the pound. In an avoirdupois pound (453.59237 g), there are 16 ounces, so a quarter has 4 ounces. In a Troy point (373.2417216 g), there are 12 ounces, so a quarter has 3 ounces. A mercantile pound has 15 ounces and no clearly defined relationship to modern measurements, so a quarter-pound has 3¾ ounces. A tower pound is 1 1/15 Troy pound, and also has 12 ounces, so a quarter-pound has 3 ounces. A London pound has 16 ounces, so a quarter has 4 ounces.

These are just some of the pounds used in England. Some have also found their way to the USA. In other European countries, there were different schemes again. Basically, forget obsolete units like pounds and ounces. They belong to a bygone millennium. The metric system was designed to replace them, for exactly these reasons.

If it’s an avoirdupois pound, then there are 4 ounces in a quarter pound.

If it’s a troy pound, then there are 3 (troy) ounces in a quarter pound. Note that this also the origin of the British unit of currency, the British pound, which was originally defined as 240 pennyweights of silver (the pound being 20 shillings, and each shilling worth 12 pennies). So, a quarter-pound is also 5 shillings or 60 pennyweights.

How Many Dry Ounces in a Cup : Dry & Liquid Measurement?

There are multiple weight types and each has different measurements. The standard used is the Avoirdupois according to which is the following measurement:

1 pound = 16 ounces

By dividing it to 4 we will get:

16/4 = 4 ounces

Therefore, the answer will be 4 ounces.

What is a pound?

A pound is a unit for measuring the weight. There are basically three different types of weight measurements:

  • Avoirdupois weight
  • Troy weight
  • Apothecaries’ weight

For the conversion of each of the following into quarter ounces, check the following:

1). Avoirdupois weight:

This is the standard weighing type as it is used for weighing heavy and bulky things, like most people in UK use this for weighing themselves or their babies.

The Measurements The Equivalents
Drams = 16 Single ounce (oz)
Ounces = 16 Single pound (lb)
Pounds = 14 Single stone (st)
Stones = 2 Single quarter (qtr)

As 1 pound is equal to 16 ounces, we can get the answer by dividing it to 4. The answer will be 4. Therefore, a quarter pound contains 4 ounces .

2. The Troy Weight:

It is used to measure precious stones such as silver or gold. 1 pound of troy equals to 12 ounces:

The Measurements The Equivalents
Grains = 24 1 pennyweight
Ounces = 12 1 pound

Now again, you will divide it by 4. When 12 is divided by 4, you will get an answer of 3 ounces, so a troy quarter pound will equal to 3 ounces .

3). The Apothecaries weight:

This was also used to measure smaller weights. For example, the powders used to make medicines.

The Measurements The Equivalents
Grains = 20 1 scruple
Drams = 8 1 ounce
Ounces = 12 1 pound

Troy and Apothecaries have almost the same measurements. As its 1 pound is also equal to 12 ounces, so its quarter pound will also be equivalent to 3 ounces.

The reason for multiplying each weigh’s equivalent of pound is:

Ounces (oz) Pounds (lb)
1 oz 0.06 lb
2 oz 0.12 lb
3 oz 0.18 lb
4 oz 0.25 lb

How many grams are in a pound?

You can find the answer of this question through the following table:

1 eighth = ⅛ oz = 3.5 g

1 quarter = ¼ oz= 7 g

1 half = ½ oz = 14 g

1 ounce = 28 g

1 pound = 16 oz = 448 g

So, the answer will be 448 g in a single pound.
