ounce of marijuana costAn ounce of marijuana is the preferred amount to purchase for some people, and is too large an amount for others. I vividly remember when I was able to gather up enough money to purchase a full ounce for the first time. I had just received my paycheck at a new job, and didn’t have any bills to pay since I was in high school living at home. I knew right away what I wanted to do the second the paycheck hit my hands – buy an ounce.

This was back in the mid-90’s when an ounce of top shelf marijuana in Oregon ran me $300. It was some top notch hash plant, and I made that ounce last an extremely long time. Fast forward to today and an ounce of the same quality of marijuana in Oregon runs $125. There are just so many people growing marijuana in Oregon now and the marketplace is so different that the price has plummeted, much to the benefit of the average Oregon marijuana smoker. I can get ounces for less than that, but an ounce of the best Cindy 99 and Girl Scout Cookies strains are $125 in my circles.

Most dispensaries that I have visited sell their ounces for considerably higher than that (up to $350), but some have specials that ring in at about $125-200. I’ve never really seen someone buying an ounce of concentrates in a dispensary, but I’ve seen it outside of dispensaries in Oregon. I’d imagine it will become a more regular occurrence at dispensaries as time goes by and dabs continue to rise in their popularity. An ounce of the finest concentrates in Oregon goes for $350 an ounce and up.

What does an ounce of marijuana cost where you live? Does it have seeds in it or not? Are there enough growers in your area that you have seen the price drop over the years? I look forward to reading your comments. Knowing what qualities and prices there are out there in different states has always been a curiosity of mine!

    I always feel left out when online discussions about marijuana come up. Everyone talks about strands and grades and it all sounds wonderful. I live in a small town in FL, and even when I lived over near Daytona BCH the only thing we have is dirt, regs and mids. NO ONE has any good strands. Oh they claim they do, but really all it is is stickier, harder to smoke in a paper, and not really any better high than regs. I hope we get medical marijuana legalized in FL this November, it’s finally on the ballot to vote on. I can’t wait for dispensaries to open up around me so that I can try all these strands that I read about all the time. My husband for sure will be able to get a card. His doctor is already allowing him too without giving him any grief about it.

    Damn you guys are all so lucky. I’m living in New Zealand and am almost ready to stop smoking because of how much of a hassle it is to get high. 1 gram/a “tinny” (because it’s wrapped in tin foil) is $20 no matter how strong it is (70% of the time it is rubbish and won’t even weigh a whole gram unless you are very buddy buddy with your dealer, which can prove to be very hard if you don’t live in your home town). There is no such thing as “strains” here. About 70%-80% is outdoor/bush weed which I’m guessing is similar to schwag weed or whatever you guys call it. Sometimes I can even smoke a whole gram to myself and be barely high. I have such a deep desire to experience all these different strains and highs that are available in other parts of the world but I feel like we’re so sheltered here and are being held back from experiencing the true effects of marajuana. There is no dabbing, vape pens, hash, budder, bubble gum and whatever else there is. I hope one day I will get the chance to experience all these different strains and highs that everyone speaks of.

    I really hate that is not legal where I live. I have chronic anxiety, have chronic pain in bones, and have chronic insomnia. They keep sending me pills: valium, xanax, , neurontin, Percocet, tramadol, toredol, oxycodone, and more and nothing helps just get worst. But if I. Smoke a little I can work without a problem. WTF. The need to legalize marijuana every where it’s our life let us live it.

    NY prices vary. The best I’ve seen is $300 for sour, blue dream, purple kush, Chem dawg, etc. There are a lot of reg dealers doing more for an ounce. On average expect to pay 360 – 400, depending on how deep you go.
