Determining what size container you need to package your freshly grown flower may be more complicated than you think. There is no one standard unit of measurement when it comes to cannabis packaging. Containers like jars are often measured in ounces, while pop tops are more likely to be measured in drams. Some containers are even measured in milliliters.
To complicate things further, these units of measurements don’t necessarily translate as practically as one would think. For example, a two-ounce jar isn’t going to two ounces of bud. This is because the weight of something isn’t necessarily congruent with its mass. Think about a pound of feather vs a pound of bricks – the feathers are going to take up much more space. Mass is also going to differ between individual batches of cannabis. Things like moisture and density are going to play huge factors in determining how much space your flower will take up.
