ummm well its not really possible to explain easily or at all. Because you could get fluffy buds that weight practically nothing, tight as rock buds and everything inbetween and so the grams always going to look different until u break it up. But after a while you can just sort of tell. I have a scale though so i never need 2 do that anymore.

yep all bowls have now been standardized to be roughly .5g to allow slybond to be right. I hate when people say shit like an 1/8 is 7 bowl packs almost as much as I hate when people talk about pot like they're a user; it ain't heroin folks. I've had bowls that were 1/4 gram bowl packs, I've had bowls that took over an entire 1/8. Don't even get started on how loosely or densely you pack that shit.

hahaha i just got like 4 new pipes and each one has different size bowls. the the OP just get some scales its never right when you eyeball it. also another good point is how can you eyeball weight? LOL. from my experience no matter how close it "looks" to a gram its still off by a little depending how the weed is like Turpo64 said. i always hate when someone wants to buy a little from my persona. i dont want to say no so i just break it up a little and try to get two joints for like 10 bucks. usually a doobie is 5 bucks around here.

Lol. You could have a bowl with the hardest bud ever, and with the dryest and lightest shit going. Doesn't mean its half gram. I knew a guy who had one that could fit a 1/4 of light shit. Eyeballing comes with experience, so don't go directly to dealers you don't know that well, because they know when they can get away with selling less.

not right now but when I start smoking again soon I'll go back to my buddies house and get a picture of this bubbler, I think he still has it. It took about a nalgene of water.


Yeah joker, I felt your sarcasm and assumed you missed mine. You know I'm smarter than that.

alright i was going on the idea that we werent talking about one hitters or party bowls, im talkin standard bowl, when ground up, i eyeball grams by putting it in the corner of a plastic bag, twisting the bag making it tight around the weed. then i put it in my bowl to see if it could possibly pack it twice. its not perfect, i just know the size of my bowl fits .5 grams...

i know a kid with this steamroller and it easily handles an 1/8th

Eyeballing is easy. 1 gram= 1 blunt. Grind the weed up if you can't tell. Other than that get a scale if you're a noob. Then learn from repeated weighs on the scale. Keep a mental image of what 1 gram looks like, and from there you should be able to roughly eyeball a gram.

Jerry: Hey, thanks for sharing your feelings with me Mike. Smoking's totally not cool. I'm glad we feel the same way.

Mike: Really?

Jerry: No, limp dick! I'm going to light up a fat blunt and then I'm going to rape your mouth!

Ive eyeballed over 100 grams and ive always been right, with the exeption of a few .1's but who gives a fuck. 1 gram should be the size of a dimebag, thats all there is to it. If its really dry/puffy/wet make exeptions. Never mind youve seen grams before many times, just have to "reproduce" what youve already seen.

ok ok, average bowl. i would say the average bowl is .5, yes there are smaller and bigger bowls but when im looking for a piece its gotta be atleast .5. whats the point of a bowl that only holds one hit?

The point of a bowl that only holds one hit is simple.....not everyone likes to get "blasted" every time they smoke. When you have decent enough weed and you just want a quick toke, a nice dug-out&bat work well....even just a one hitter little bowl. The point being, if you have decent enough weed, one hit every now and then will work wonders ;)

Im not paranormal or anything, but i figure i "eyeball" a gram with my eyes ;)

Sorry for the double post, and being off topic.....kinda. But my buddy had a hookah that would hold roughly an Oz of smoke. Definately a waste of weed, but made a nice party bowl ;)

ive taken one bong rip
ive taken one gravity hit
ive takin one pipe hit
when you smoke constantly through the day every little while you get more and more stoned for the whole day rather than just one sesh lasting a couple hours
ive done it when i have nothing to do and i just sit at home smoking little bits at a time

OKAY IM GONNA ANSWER THIS RIGHT SO LISTEN

Eyeballing a gram is a term. It's just judging by what you see and feel to make sure it's a gram. Things to consider are :

Is it compressed?
Is it wet?
Is it sticky?
Is it stemmy? (stems weight a LOT less than bud, but they're still extra weight.)
Is it seedy? (seeds add a lot of weight.)

and obviously the size makes a difference.

It's an aquired ability. You just somehow know you can eyeball a gram one day.

You wake up and it just coarses through your veins. You can feel it.

THERE IS NO STANDARD period. Bowls around here are usually about .3, but anywhere else they could be whatever. Pipe size is different than a bowl of weed. I usually give out .3-.4 if someone wants a bowl. However if your area is flooded with fat chunky pipes that load a gram, you'd have to dish out more, but it's whateva.

Jerry: Hey, thanks for sharing your feelings with me Mike. Smoking's totally not cool. I'm glad we feel the same way.

For the win!

If you aren't comfortable eye balling buy a scale until you are.
