Two questions.......
    #1189104 - 01/04/03 02:16 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Okay I've done mushrooms about 3 times so far and I have a few qestions I would like answered...

1st off, how much is exactly 4 grams... what does it look like?  like compare it to something like a regular sized shot glass, how many should i fill to get 3 grams? (i'm just using a shot glass as a comparison because that's what's right beside me :P )

and the second question... is it better to just eat the mushrooms straight or make them into a tea... hell, what's the best way to take them peroid! i noticed i got hit earlier just by eating them straight then by making a tea, but i want to see what you guys have to say!  thanks  :smile:

i think you are asking for the volume of 4 grams of mushrooms. that can vary depending on the average size of the shrooms and the range of sizes. it could be less than one large mushroom or it could be 30 very small mushrooms or it could be a whole bunch of tiny aborts or any combination of these. the only way to tell for sure would be to grind the shrooms up into a powder and then compare volume. i doubt many people have done that. tip: get a scale. you need one if you want to accurately dose shrooms.

from what i understand, tea usually hits much quicker since much of the goodness is taken into solution and so can be absorbed much quicker. i have never tried it, but i know people who have. personally, i just chew em up.

I would go to my local headshop and pick up a cheap little scale.

If you feel comfortable with your dealer selling you correctly weighed bags, then you could eyeball 3-4g out of a quarter with no problem. If they are homegrown then I would just go with the scale to save yourself trouble in the future.

an eighth (3.5 grams) is usually a stem thick pile of shrooms on the bottom of a ziplock bag. Scales are handy, eyeballnig is hard to do. Sometimes a stem will be thick and heavy and other times it will be hollow thin and light like a feather.

I like tea.

And yes; you'll definitely wanna use a scale - its basically impossible to judge how much you're taking otherwise.

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

But even if it is ground, density isn't always equal - ground mush will be heavier than ground dried, obviously. A good scale is your best friend, as the others have said.

Potency is another factor to take into account. I find that anywhere between 3-9 grams is the range for a great, level 5 encounter. It's best to take a minimal dose at first to gauge the fungus.

As far as ingestion method - i like taking them straight usually, but if their especially flavorful, taking them with a NON-citrus juice is a better option to prevent quesiness... but if you're stomach never bothers you [mine doesn't anymore] go ahead and top 'em with hot sauce if you like.

shroom on.
