Measurements: Metric vs. U.S.

I am confused on the measurements of your dried herbs. If something is 50g/$9, is that almost 2 ounces for $9? How much is a gram?

Outside of the United States the world uses the metric system for measures. Here is a rough conversion table:

1 ounce = 30 grams

2 ounces = 60 grams

4 ounces = 125 grams

8 ounces = 250 grams

1 pound = 500 grams

2 pounds = 1000 grams = 1 kilogram

Hope that helps.
