Grams are typically the smallest amount of ‘weed‘ that medical marijuana patients would make a donation for. Some dispensaries or people may try to sell smaller quantities but that is rare. A gram is the standard unit of measurement for those looking to make a small purchase.
Over time, you’ll be able to identify what a gram of cannabis looks like. Visually, a gram of premium cannabis is usually sold as one whole bud as opposed to a bunch of smaller buds. A gram can be as small as a dime (eg. compact Indica strains) or as large as a half-dollar coin (eg. low density Sativa strains).
If you’re just starting out or want to be precise, then you can pick up a digital scale for less than $10.
