Registered cardholders may possess the following:
one (1) ounce of marijuana flower OR
eight (8) grams of marijuana concentrate OR
800 mg of THC in marijuana infused products or edibles OR
Sixteen (16) .5 ml vape cartridges OR
Eight (8) 1 ml vape cartridges
one (1) ounce of marijuana flower = eighty (80) ten-milligram servings, or 800mg of THC in marijuana products or edibles = eight (8) grams of concentrate = eight (8) ml of vape cartridges
If you purchase ½ ounce of flower, you would also be able to purchase four (4) grams of marijuana concentrate OR 400 mg of infused products or edibles OR four (4) 1 ml vape cartridges OR eight (8) .5 ml vape cartridges

Understanding The 1 Ounce Cannabis Rule
The 1 ounce medical marijuana equivalences listed above are similar rules to that of recreational cannabis in Colorado.
Colorado, who has had recreational cannabis since 2012, has completed the following study regarding cannabis equivalences between flowers, concentrates, edibles and more types of cannabis products.
The "Marijuana Equivalency in Portion and Dosage" was finalized in August of 2015 and was one of the first studies describing cannabis ratios between cannabis product categories.
The study took a three step approach. Taking perspectives from
What they determined lead to Colorado ruling for the 1 ounce equivalences described above.
With Colorado being such a staple State when it comes to the marijuana industry, it would not be surprising to reason how Montana ended up with similar 1 ounce cannabis equivalences as Colorado.
