Is That A Metaphor Or Something?
My title is a stretch, for sure, but since I think it’s funny, I’m going to leave it. What does it mean, though? Well, I think I’m trying to suggest that a 1/2oz of weed is about the same size as a bird. What kind of bird, you ask? That kind of indirectly brings me to my point.
What common objects make for good visual reference points when trying to determine how much cannabis you’re looking at? The best example I’ve encountered is that if you have a 1/4oz of weed, laid out as flat as possible, then it should entirely cover a standard-sized business card. That’s a pretty good example, as it’s very easy to imagine the amount of weed that it would take to do that. Most people have experience with business cards, and most of those people have probably seen enough weed in one place to completely conceal one. Therefore, the 1/4oz = 1 business card makes for a solid visual reference point.
What about other quantities, though? If we can visualize a 1/4oz by thinking of a business card, how might we approximate the size of an ounce or a 1/2oz? Obviously a 1/2oz could just be two business cards, but I feel like we can get a little more creative.
