    I want to know how much weed i have left, but i don't know if my scale is working properly. Can someone give me some tips on how to check if it measures stuff out correctly?

    Is it a gram scale? If so get a U.S. Nickel and put it on it should weigh 5.0. Or do a search for your countrys coins and then throw one on and see what it weighs. Also did your scale come with a 100/200g calibration weight?

    It's a gram and Oz scale. No 100/200 calibration weight, as the scale wasn't purchased from a store.

    I did reserch on coins, and a swedish 1:- coin weighs either 6 or 7 grams. But i don't know for sure. And when i set a coin on it, it measured 6 grams. I put my hash on along with the coin and it said 8 grams. That means that the scale says that i have 2 grams. But when i place the hash on by itself, without the coin, the scale says 0.
