What Does Dub Mean?

The cannabis slang term ‘dub’ usually refers to $20 worth of weed. The term came about as a secretive and evasive way to ask for marijuana so that anyone overhearing the conversation would not know what was truly being discussed.

Dub was always a common word used to describe 20-inch tire rims. However, in a covert effort to disguise the terminology the word ‘dub’ became the cagey way to ask for cannabis on the street.


Maximum Yield Explains Dub

The term ‘dub’ is often still used to ask for a $20 bag of cannabis. However, as time changes, so do prices and amounts. Nowadays, a dub of cannabis is usually 1.5 to 2.5 grams of marijuana.

However, many things dictate price besides weight. In the dispensaries, quality matters. Top quality cannabis and medical marijuana will cost considerably more than a lower quality product.

The word dub is quickly becoming antiquated in modern cannabis terminology as the dispensaries have become upscale and offer a wide array of cannabis products of varying qualities and strengths.

Furthermore, there is becoming less and less of a need to covertly ask for cannabis.
