grow, dry, grind, encapsulate!
    #1273991 - 02/03/03 11:58 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

i know this isn't really cultivation (sorry :blush:) but it is the end of a homemade psilocybe dosing schedule:

i ordered  :cool: this kit  :cool: after i saw a post on it here at the shroomery forum, and read how daussaulit had it and rated it. daussaulit gives good advice: $15 for the kit, $10 for more caps than i could fill in a year, $10 airmail to the UK. it arrived in 5 days.

took my tub of ground up mushroom powder (coffee grinder, or pestle and mortar), and turned it into a tub of capsules:


it only took so long cos i'd smoked a joint and had to fill the machine about 5 times!
the only downside if if you want to dose high - stomachful of caps ahoy! ten caps weigh 2.7g, 18 caps for a 5g dose. great for girlfriends.

:grin:enjoy

Cleanse, fold, manipulate!
Did you figure in the dry weight of the caps without the powder inside them?

Looks great, though - I'd imagine it does wonders for portability, which seems like it would be the biggest problem for mushrooms in general ('uuhhh, no officer...these are plastic simulation mushrooms, I swear!")

yes. 50 empty caps 6.3g, 50 full caps 19.7g

you're right. they now sit perfectly in my vitamin capsule pot. they look identical in every way.

What size caps did you get? I think you can get 00 or 000 size caps that will hold .5g (you got your kit already though:) I been thinkin about making my own vitamins.

Here are a few I found, Looks like the 00 size might be a better bet if you are not into swallowing pills.

Hmm... If these are OO capsules like you say, then your way off.  7  FULLY packed capsules should weigh  ~3.5 grams (1/8)  ..  14 FULLY packed capsules should weigh  ~7 grams (1/4 oz.).

Did you not use the tamping tool??

Me Too!    If you putting anywhere near 18 capsules in your mouth for a dose of 5grams using OO capsules.. Umm... You might want to re-read your instructions on how to use the machine.

i was also surprised. they are definitely OO, and the paperwork does say that these should hold "approx 650mg" so I was disappointed by this. but i packed it down good, and those are the figures.

next time i go clubbing, i'm taking me along 18 caps!

:tongue:

Do you all know how much in weight the OOO capsules hold?
http://www.cap-m-quik.com/orderkit.html
They have the OOO and I was wondering if those would be better?

i got the gelatin ones. when i got the pack, it mentioned that the veg ones don't need the dessicant to be around, which is good. also no animals involved, for the veg / vegan community :laugh:

it's true that my 'powder' was flakey rather than dusty, but i don't believe that that could account for the difference i got; my OO caps were 0.27g each, not 0.65g.

Other users - how much did yours fit in, really?

Well they say that the OO are about 650mg which equals .65 grams. I would like to know from the others here who use OO are they really getting a true weight of .5 grams on an electronic scale with OO capsules? I want to order these asap but I want know if they will hold .5 gram if not then I need to get bigger capsules.

Mine were almost exactly  1/2 Gram each for the OO.    I'd use something other than a rounded pen cap to pack them down.  You want something that will fit into the capsule like an  Allen wrench or something of that sort.  This will guarantee that the powder is fully packed.  Also you need to:  Fill,  Pack,  Fill,  Pack....  Until it wont go down anymore.

Thanks Happgrins.
So do you think you can pack that much in yours shirley? Or does it seem impossible. Should I get OOO?

eck, me no like capsules, last time i put something inside caps myself was nutmeg, yea nutmeg me and my friends thought it would be the easiest way to do it because neither of us could swallow 5 tablespoons of nutmeg..ick...but too many caps in your stomach is a BAD thing, but i dont think you have to swallow 20 some caps for shroom pills

cap-m-quik says that OO are approx. 950mg and capsuleconnection says they are approx. 650mg HMMM, maybe capsuleconnections OO are smaller. OO should be the same size everywhere right?
