An eighth refers to a common consumer quantity or unit of cannabis weighing exactly 3.5 grams, equivalent to one eighth of an ounce (28 grams). Alongside grams, quarters, halves and ounces, eighths represent one of the most standard denomination weights that recreational and medical marijuana flower is packaged, priced and sold by dispensaries and retailers.

On average, one eighth contains enough material to roll around 7-10 reasonably sized, single-serving cannabis cigarettes or joints for most smokers. However, actual yield depends greatly on density, grinding process, rolling proficiency and personal smoking consumption style. Current pricing for an eighth of quality indoor flower ranges from $35 to $40 on average across legal U.S markets, but still varies substantially based on location, individual dispensary, taxes and product quality.

The term eighth is simply shorthand slang referring to one-eighth of an ounce of cannabis. Other typical legal purchase sizes include 1 gram, 1 quarter ounce (7 grams), 1 half ounce (14 grams) and 1 full ounce (28 grams). While weight remains consistent, visible look, feel and exact smoke quality can vary slightly between different strains of the same packaged eighth size.
