Mix and Match Ounce

Posted by CANNASaver on Friday, 13 May 2022 in Canna Blog

Wouldn’t it be great if dispensaries had sampler platters like restaurants? Mix and match ounce deals are much the same idea. You can build your own assorted ounce packets and get great ganja deals!

So, you could buy, say, a quarter of one strain and a half of another. You do this until you’ve built up to an ounce total.

Cannabis stores offer their biggest overall discounts on ounces. Normally it costs more to buy smaller amounts of weed versus the savings on a whole ounce. 

By building your own ounce you get savings and some variety. 

Why would a provisioning center do this? To encourage you to buy more marijuana. 

It’s a weed win-win!

Let’s delve deeper into these dank deals.

Ways to Weigh a Mix and Match Ounce 

Experienced cannabis consumers understand how flower is sold. Newbies may not fully understand. Weed weights aren’t overly complicated.

Everything is either grams or portions of an ounce

  • Usually, other than a gram, one of the smallest measurements of marijuana bud is an eighth. That’s 3.5 grams. That’s a few pipe bowls, bong hits, or rolled joints worth of weed. 
  • Next is the quarter. Quarters equal 7 grams. If you smoke somewhat steadily, a quarter will probably get you through a weekend. Say, a dozen doobies.
  • A half is 14 grams. That’s roughly a week’s worth of weed unless you’re pretty frugal. Now we’re looking at dozens of bong bowls.
  • An ounce itself is 28 grams. It’s a popular size because for most it’s enough marijuana to last you a good while.
  • And, incidentally, a pound is 16 ounces. That equals 448 grams. That’s a bunch of buds and should keep you toking for a good long time.

With mix and match specials, there are different ways dispensaries break down the weights.

For example, some sellers may run specials to build an ounce in half-ounce increments. Others may allow you to put together eights, quarters, or halves. 

There are even specials with discounts on 2 ounces. Those let you select two different ounces for the total purchase.

It is important to read the deal details carefully, so you know what amounts are applicable.

How else can you build your bud bundle?

Mixing and Matching Strains

What’s another way to mix your promo? By considering different strains, of course. It would make no sense to divide up the same strain.

So, what others should you consider?

Strains are divided into indicas, sativas, and hybrids


Indicas can be relaxing or sedating. They tend to produce what’s called a body high. They are a high-CBD variety.

Nighttime is the right time for smoking this weed. It works well before bed to promote sleepiness. The term couch-locked is applicable for a strong indica. It means that you’re so relaxed you don’t want to get off the couch. 

They are also used to reduce anxiety. 


Sativas are stimulating. The buzz is more in the brain, euphoric. They are a high-THC weed strain.

This kind of cannabis aids concentration. It is also great at combatting depression. 

Say you wanted some energy for cleaning the house. Smoking sativa would be the way to go. Its energizing effects make it an ideal daytime strain. 


Hybrids are a mix of both indicas and sativas. Some are 50/50, but many are some other combination of high-CBD and high-THC ganja. There are indica-leaning hybrids and there are those that are more sativa-heavy.

Any weed name with ‘haze’ in it is a sativa or sativa-dominant hybrid. If it’s a ‘kush’, then it tends to be an indica or a hybrid that leans that way.

Building your flower collection, you can often mix and match strains. They are all going to be sativas, indicas, or hybrids.  

There are a gazillion variants of ganja. Research, and asking your local budtender, are good ways to find out which strains are what kind of weed. 

New strains are appearing all the time. Growers often crossbreed strains to produce new subspecies.

Often, the dispensary will have a list of different strains you can choose from. You then use these to build your budget bundle. 

Knowing what each kind is will help you pick the ones you want or need. Never be afraid to ask questions, so you know what you’re getting. 

Now, how can you find places that are offering specials?

How to Find Great Mix and Match Ounce Deals 

Cannasaver is a great site to find discounted cannabis goodies. If you want to find combination ounce specials near you, there are several ways to do so.

You can type ‘mix and match’ in the upper lefthand search bar. Just below that is a map icon that you can click to narrow results down to your location. If there are deals in your city, this will help you find them.

Another way to find these deals is by using the dropdown menu next to the topmost search box. This menu offers ‘Deals Near Me’ and ‘Ounce Deals’ as options. Either of these selections could get you to listings of weed store savings on bud bundles.

What kind of discount you are looking for? Searching Cannasaver pages will help you find what’s out there.

Now you have some things to think about. Putting together a bud bundle on a budget can be done. Provisioning center promotional rules may dictate how discount weed is divided up. But if you have flexibility, you have some idea of ways to put it all together.

Ounces are divided up by eighths, quarters, halves, and wholes. Sometimes promotions are for multiple ounces. Other times, you’re dividing up a single ounce. Read offers carefully, so you know what your options are.

If you want some variety in your stash, these deals are ideal! You can sometimes choose between indicas, sativas, or hybrids. Again, your local retailer may give you a list of strains to choose from. Know your cannabis and choose the variants that you want.

How Many Blunts in an Ounce?

Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 21 March 2022 in Canna Blog

Blunts "burn" through a decent amount of weed, so it's best to buy an ounce of weed or more at a time. However, you may be asking yourself, “How many blunts can I make from an ounce of weed?” Just how many blunts equals an ounce of weed? We break down the math:

Marijuana Buds

How Much Weed is in An Ounce?

Well, let’s first discuss what do we mean by an ounce of weed.  

When people refer to one ounce of weed, they refer to cannabis flower or marijuana bud

For cannabis flower, one ounce of weed equals 28 grams (g).   

For our discussion, we will not get into any possession limitations for recreational and/or medical cannabis consumers in different states. Ask your local budtender for more regulations there.    

Before we start our discussion, we want you to know if you’d like to purchase cannabis by the ounce, you can check out some of our great ounce deals and coupons

What Can You Do With An Ounce of Weed?

So, what can you do with 1 ounce of cannabis/weed? 

Well, quite a few things, but let’s start with a blunt first.  

preroll joint

Smoke Blunts

A blunt is similar to a joint, but a blunt is rolled with cigar paper (also called blunt paper). 

This paper is made out of tobacco and gives the user that extra “kick” when smoking.   The tobacco-made wrapping paper helps the blunt burn slower than a joint (discussed below).  There are numerous flavors of blunt paper including different kinds of fruit flavors.  

Most blunts contain anywhere from 1-2 grams of weed, so with one ounce of weed, you could roll anywhere from 14 to 28 blunts.   

If you’re wondering if you could use the entire ounce of cannabis (weed) in one blunt, sure, you can.  You would just have to find the correct cigar paper that would keep the one ounce of weed in place.  You may have to also be creative, with the wrapping.

That's quite the blunt.

Smoke Joints

Classic joints (or pre-rolls) involve rolling white paper, which can now be made of various materials, including hemp, soy, rice, and flaxseed (also referred to as flax). 

There are also clear rolling papers made from plant cellulose.  The benefit of the cellulose paper is the ability to see the cannabis; however, some users claim that it affects the taste of the joint and they can even taste the cellulose.  

There is an obvious difference between a joint and a blunt wrapper, with the latter being brown and much thicker.   

The amount of cannabis in a joint can vary from 0.25 g to 1.5 g, in contrast to a blunt, which usually contains 1-2 grams. 

As you notice, with a blunt and joint, the amount of cannabis can vary, but typically a blunt has more cannabis, even though it is not always the case.    

Let’s say the average joint contains 1 gm of weed; it would allow you to roll 28 joints

If you use 1.5 gm of weed, in each joint, it would allow you to roll about 18 joints, while using ¼ gm of weed, in each joint, would allow you to roll 112 joints; however, I’m not sure who would ever want to roll that many small joints.  We’re just noting that it could be done.     

With one ounce of weed, you can roll quite a few blunts and/or joints. 

Load a Bowl or Two or Fifty

If you do not enjoy rolling, then you can place the one ounce into a bowl.  

The bowl is the part of a pipe or bong (water pipe) that holds the cannabis. 

In bongs, the bowl usually slides out, to allow the chamber to be cleared, while the cannabis smoke is inhaled.

Most pipes are packed ½ gm at a time, so with one ounce of weed, you could pack 56 bowls.   

Vape It

Vaporizers are considered a safer alternative to smoking since the cannabis leaves are not burned; thus, fewer to no carcinogens are produced.  The THC is extracted from the cannabis leaves by heating, and not burning them.  Most vaporizers take ¼ gm to ½ gm of weed. 

So, with one ounce of weed, you could fill and refill a vaporizer 56 times, up to 112 times.    

marijuana edible cookie

Use It For Edibles

For those of you that don’t enjoy smoking or vaping, edibles are a great way to consume cannabis.  

Cannabis-infused butter or cannabis oils are used to make baked edibles such as brownies and cookies.   

Some people prefer edibles since the “high” sensation that is produced, will last much longer than the high from inhalation.  The “high” produced from edibles peaks at about 2 hours and can last up to 24 hours; in contrast to the “high” from inhaled cannabis that usually peaks at 10 minutes and lasts 1-3 hours 

To get high from edibles, the cannabis flower needs to be heated and placed into butter (decarboxylation).  The heating of the cannabis, and dissolving into the butter, is required to release the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the main component of cannabis, that gives you the “high” feeling.   

The amount of cannabis used to make edibles is based on mg of THC, with 10 mg being the usual dose.  To calculate this dose we require the percentage of THC in the cannabis. 

Some low potency cannabis contains 10% THC, while more potent strains can contain 20% THC.  If you do the calculations, milligrams (mg) of cannabis must be used. With 1 gm of cannabis flower, there is 1000 mg, with 10% THC, that would be 100 mg of THC.  That 100 mg of THC supplies 10 edibles, at the typical edible dose of 10 mg THC each; thus, 1 ounce of flower, could produce 280 typical edibles. 

But please note, that many "bakers" use varying amounts of THC when making different products, so these numbers can vary.   

As you see, there are quite a few ways that you can use 1 ounce of weed.  Don’t forget to check out our special deals on ounces of cannabis.
