1000. A kilogram is a thousand grams. 2 lbs of bud would be 896 grams, so you're getting a lil bit more if you buy based off the metric system...although, I don't believe I've ever heard of people selling pot that way, just coke and other crap. Probabl worth anywhere between $18-19K

if you didn't know how many grams in a kilogram, i guarantee you will never buy or posses a kilo of weed.

edit: no way is a kilo $18-19,000 - that would be $18-19/gram!
more like $2-5,000

I had a friend purchase a pound of schwag for $600. Which comes out to less than $40 an ounce. I'm sure a kilo would get a slight price cut so say $1200.

I've seen QP's of good mids sell for $300 which is $1,000 a pound after a slight price cut. Say $1800-$2000 for a kilo.

Ounces of high quality bud range from $200-$400. This really depends on who your connections are and just how amazing the bud is. I'd say $8,000 for a kilo of a legitimate strain. That breaks down to $8 a gram. You could easily sell ounces for $300. With about 35.7 ounces in a kilo that leaves you with a profit of $2,700. A lot of math but not a bad profit.

If you are looking to double six digit sums of money you probably want to look towards coke. Maybe a gun too.

if you're paying 2-5G for a kilo, you're getting ripped off, bro. Either that, or the prices in your area are awful. Also, that was a "worst-case" ballpark guess. If I were selling a kilo of pot (which would never happen anyway), depending on the strain and cost to produce (etc), I'd go anywhere from 1500-1700.

i don't buy kilos, that was just my estimate. 2 grand for a kilo would be a pretty good deal. i've heard of pounds going for that much.

so 2-5k is a rip off but 18-19k is a worst case scenario?

That's $1.50 to $1.70 a gram! Clearly you are talking about oregano.

Break down the numbers like I did and then you can make a decent argument.

id agree on 2500-7000$ depending on location. In city areas, it will be much harder to get then closer to forests or borders

bulk weed is generaly sold by the pound or half pound. Around here Shwag (anything with seeds) goes for $600-$1000 for a single. Beasters $2500-$3200 and headies can be up to $4500- $6000 for really nice stuff. Beasters can get much cheaper if you buy multiples and have a good connect. Calucating the price of lbs based on grams is pretty irelevant. Expect to pay more than half for an HP.

yeah a key is 1,000 grams. In the US you get pounds of weed, and kilos of powder. And a kilo is 2.2 lbs.
for price, in St Louis you get lbs of brick for $7-1000. Midgrade for $900-1400+, sometimes its a buck an ounce no matter how much you get with mids.
$1000-1250 for a quarter pound of dro here, so 3500ish a pound? not sure
And for a kilo of yay, your probably going to pay 17-20 stacks. depending on who you get it from and how much its been re-compacted
basically you get what you pay for
EDIT: forgot dro price caus im too broke for it

Yeah, who the fuck buys weed in kilos?...
"Hippy is an establishment label for a profound, invisible, underground, evolutionary process. For every visible hippy, barefoot, beflowered, beaded, there are a thousand invisible members of the turned-on underground. Persons whose lives are tuned in to their inner vision, who are dropping out of the TV comedy of American Life."
-Timothy Leary

Now when you meet these poor souls who are seeking to destroy—and there are many many of them on the World Wide Web, for they are able to get away with much (they think; they are not aware of how so many can feel their unlovingness), they feel they can get away with more because in person their unloving essence expresses itself more obviously, they think—do not make the mistake of polarizing toward them in a way that says "I will destroy you." Do not approach them with attack. Do not feed back to them unloving essence, for that is what they wish.

Beasst will bear your MARK of synthetic protection as their ELF GWEN plays Gaia's HAARP of sorrow.
