With 12.5 grams of tobacco, it would be possible to create about 12 cigarettes. While not every cigarette is the same, they contain an average of about 1 gram of tobacco each.
Manufactured cigarettes are often rolled to different standards, with wider and longer cigarettes containing more tobacco. According to the University of Rochester Medical Center, many people believe that cigars are safer to smoke than cigarettes. This is just a myth, as large cigars contain between 5 and 17 grams of tobacco. While the average smoker spends 10 minutes or less smoking a cigarette, a single cigar may be smoked for hours.
