How much is a gram of hemp flower?
Let us first understand the difference between weed and hemp. Both weed and hemp come from the same plant, Cannabis Sativa L. If the plant contains a high amount of THC, it is classified as weed (or cannabis, marijuana, reefer, pot, ganja, etc.). If the plant has a low percentage of THC (below .3%), it is classified as hemp (industrial hemp, CBD bud, hemp bud, CBD weed, smokable hemp, etc.). Hemp flowers and weed look the same to the naked eye. There are no visual differences. So, a gram of hemp flower and a gram of weed look the same.
A gram is the most common measurement for weed and hemp flower. A gram of hemp flower is also referred to as a "G", "dime", "dime-bag", "dub", or "dubsack". Although "dub" and "dubsack" can also refer to two grams of hemp flower — it really depends on who you ask. Below is a photo of a gram of hemp flower with two common objects for reference: a quarter and a ping pong ball. Depending on its density, a gram of weed is about the same size as a gumball.
