How long does an eighth usually last you? I'm trying to make my supply last a lot longer than it currently does. I was thinking that if I got a large amount, say in the neighborhood of a half ounce or an ounce, that might last me until I'm paid again in a month. I'm on Social Security and I get an allowance cut from that in the neighborhood of $120/mo. With that, I spend it on this and that but lately most of it has been going towards cannabis and cannabis-related products (paraphernalia). I ran out of the 1/4 my guy sold me (this is where the "recreational" part comes in) about a week ago and I haven't bought much from the dispensary - just 4 spliffs to date. I want to get up to 1/2 ounce so it'll last me the month using conservatively and perhaps have a little left over by the time I'm ready to buy more. When I do, I'll just finish off the old stuff and then go onto the new. First in, first out. So, I know it's been a hike but back to my original question: How much can an eighth or a quarter last you? I'm in the process of dialing in my dosage for the conditions that ail me for which cannabis has been prescribed as a remedy. That dose would be one to two hits off a bong or a bowl or two to four draws from a cone twice to three times daily. Sometimes more, sometimes less. I figure about 9 draws per cone = about a day and a half's worth of medicine in one cone. By my reckoning, that's approximately 3 cannabis cones worth of medicine. 3 cones per week, 4 weeks in a calendar month equals 12 cones per month. That's just north of $165 @ ~$14/ea. I also feel that cones do seem the way to go - for me, at least in terms of delivery method. It's much more precise than packing a bowl not knowing how much is being incinerated and how much cannabis remains. I guess I'm so much of a noob that I don't know which product or method would be the most cost-effective for my budget. I mean, should I stick with flower medicine in the form of a spliff and toke on that when I need a dose or should I co concentrates or edibles?
