How Much Cannabis Can You Purchase In A Colorado Dispensary?

So how much weed can you actually buy in a Colorado dispensary? This depends on what items you are wanting to purchase. We like to use the example of a pizza with 8 slices. See below fo example:

  • 28 Grams of dry flower = 8 1/8ths
  • 8 Grams of Concentrates (Wax,Shatter, Oil, Live Resin..ect)
  • 800mg (8 Grams) of Edibles OR 8 100mg Edibles.

You can mix and match between dry flower, concentrates, and edibles, however it can get confusing as how much you can purchase. Our budtenders will be able to guide you through your legal limits. Let us give you an example of what a mix and match order totalling to your legal limit would look like.

  • 2 Grams of concentrates and 3/4th OZ of dry flower
  • 2 Grams of concentrates, 1/2 OZ of dry flower, and 2 100mg edibles.

A good rule of thumb to remember is: 2 Grams of concentrate equals 1/4th OZ of dry flower (In regards to your legal puchase limit).
