Buying hemp flower can be slightly intimidating for a newcomer, especially when it comes to quantity. Should you buy a gram, an eighth, a quarter… or more? And what do those terms even mean?
If you’ve found yourself asking these questions and wondering what quantities of hemp flower look like, then you’re in the right place. In this visual guide, we’ll help you understand what to expect when buying any quantity of cannabis.
Disclaimer: Keep in mind that hemp flower buds are not uniform in density or appearance, every batch of flower is unique. Some buds might be fluffier and lighter, while others denser and smaller.
Hemp Flower Gram:
As the smallest weight option you’ll find, a gram is a good place to start if you’re testing different strains. Pre-rolls from dispensaries and shops such as Mr.Hemp Flower typically contain a single gram. Pre-rolls are great option and a “go-to” for many of our customers. You can check them out here.
Eighth (3.5 Grams)
At 1/8 of an ounce, an eighth equals 3.5 grams of flower, which translates to around 7 half-gram joints. It’s usually a bit more cost effective than buying a single gram; an eighth will run you $30-45.
Quarter (7 Grams)
A quarter, or quad, refers to 7 grams (1/4th of an ounce, hence the name) of flower. This quantity is ideal for regular smokers, and you can expect to pay $55-$80 per quarter.
Half-Ounce (14 Grams)
If you buy a half-ounce of hemp flower, you can expect it to weigh in at 14 grams. At this quantity, you’ll start to see noticeable bulk discounts; for example, you can buy a half-ounce from Mr. Hemp Flower for $99.99. If you’re interested in making your own butters or oils from hemp flower, a half ounce is recommended as a starting point to ensure potent results.
Ounce (28 Grams)
Finally, an ounce of hemp flower contains 28 grams. For those looking to buy hemp flower in bulk, an ounce will give you the most bang for your buck. An ounce of flower will usually run you anywhere from $150-$220, and it’s the best option for daily smokers.

Don’t Forget to Grind Your Hemp Flower
Grinding your hemp flower will ensure that you get the most out of your buds, helping it to burn slower and more evenly. You can do this by hand, but we recommend picking up a high-quality grinder to do the work for you.

What’s The Difference Between Hemp Flower and Weed (marijuana)?
Hemp grown for its resinous flowers is essentially identical to marijuana, both of which are simply two different types of the same plant species, called cannabis.
The main difference between CBD Hemp strains and marijuana strains is their THC content. THC is the primary active compound in marijuana that causes the mind and mood altering psychotropic side effects, but it’s only found in minute traces in CBD Hemp.
If you’ve ever had a bad experience with marijuana, it was likely due to consuming too much THC, which can induce an overwhelming sensation of anxiety or panic in some cases.
CBD-rich Hemp Flower contains little to no THC content, so you don’t have to worry about the deleterious effects associated with marijuana use.
