Very dry mushrooms, cannot weigh out for dosage
    #24942013 - 01/25/18 09:58 PM (3 years, 3 months ago)

Hey guys, so it’s my first grow and things have been going pretty well. I recently harvested my fruits, put them in my dehydrator, and have them in mason jars with a silica packet to preserve them. Now that it’s time to weigh out my dosage it seems that the mushrooms are so dry that they aren’t weighing on the scale properly. I’d have to put way more than 5g on the scale for the scale to actually read 5g. This could lead to a way too powerful trip and ruin what I’m intending. Any suggestions on what to do here? Can I dose by size of the mushroom instead. Thanks everyone!

I think that's the mushroom gods telling you you need 5 grams to experience the experience . good luck have fun

You don't want any water weight in your mushrooms.    They should be extremely dry to dose accurately.

If they aren't totally dry you're not getting the dose you're thinking you're getting.

5gm dry can look intimidating.I've stared at a 5gm pile of mushrooms many times and thought,"maybe my scale is wrong".Lol.As for your mushrooms being too dry..no such thing.You don't want any moisture left in them.If you feel like you're sure they're dry and your scale is wrong,well buy a new scale.

I think you just need to find a small tupperware container that will fit on the scale, then press the tare button.

This doesn't really make sense.

Does your scale work?

Put a nickel on it - I should weigh 5 grams. Does it? If not, get a new scale.

If so, put mushrooms on scale until desired number is reached. As guy above suggested, use a container to hold them if necessary due to size of weighing surface. I'm gonna assume you know how tare works or can figure it out.

Isn't this kind of like the what weighs more 1 pound of bricks or 1 pound of feathers question. As everyone said your shrooms are supposed to be as dry as absolutely possible. With that being said, weight is weight. If theoretically they were so dry that a giant pile only weighed a gram...you would only still be eating 1 gram lol logically if you have to put more than 5 grams on a scale for it to read 5 grams, then that means you know you have more than 5 grams and the obvious answer is your scale is broken..

5 grams dry is more or less 50 grams fresh, which are both equivalent (very big) doses. A 5 gram pile of bone dry mushrooms can be intimidating.

I’m gonna go ahead and assume it’s my scale. It’s one of those food scales used to weigh ounces and ounces of food, not such small quantities. I appreciate the input

Oh yeah, you need a scale that's accurate to .1 gram at least, if not .001

You want a pocket scale. Sometimes called a jewelry scale

Can get a good one on amazon for like 8 bucks

As others have said, you need a new scale, and it doesn't have to cost any more than $15 or so. Problem solved.
