    No Scale

    Any way to weigh out weed without a balance or scale? Think a friend of mine just ripped me off, really want to know. Thanks!

    Keen smoker?

    Well I've smoked a few times a week for the past year buying all my own stuff and whatnot but today I bought an 1/8th of headies that looks nowhere near 3.5g. Buddy said that because its really good quality shit that its compressed and once you break it up you'll see it. Headies rarely rolls around here and it was only my second time buying it.

    they're all in little buds, aren't they? i know when i used to think that when i would buy headdies. they're just these little light green bulbs.

    trust me though, it probably is an eighth. especially if he said he weighed it and knows it's 3.5. an eighth of headdies is about two buds about as big around as a quarter. or four buds about as big as pennies. you get the idea.

    but powder puff is right. experience is the best scale - "inspect" your bags every time you buy. it'll give you a keen eye on how much to expect from different qualities.

    I still haven't gotten the EXACT hang of weight, but starting to.. And it is better, cause then, when you see it, you can tell your dealer right away, that you are not satisfied!

    yea but even if you can judge based on eye, what are you gona do, "hey man i think yuo ripped me" dealer: "no man i weighted it, its right trust me" you: "well...uh...ok cya" theres nothing you can do, no dealer is gona give you more weeed just cuz ur not "satisfied". but w/e, just get ur own scale or tell people u have one thus reducing ur chances of getting ripped.

    Yeah, offcourse.. By what I said, I meant if you go get the weed, and then you have a propper weight at home You can then offcourse tell your dealer, that you have a scale at home, and you can see that it is not what you are paying for..!

    But then again, your dealer won't say "oh, sorry! I tried to rip you of..!"

    LOL

    i tell you what you can do...i heard this from a very intellectual buddy of mine, on these boards even. how to digi your weed without a digi, is you take yer bus pass in one hand, the weed in the other, and see if they have about the same weight

    if it feels compressed, and he says it is.. it most likely is.. i hate when people complain if i sell some compressed weed, it still weighs up.

    That's so true, sight is only part of it, you have to feel the nugs. If they're hard to the touch expect less nugs; if soft expect more

    This thread reminded me of the guy who said a buspass weighed 1 gram and wanted to comapare the weight of the buspass and his weed.
