weight convertion.. PLEASE HELP
    #3342568 - 11/10/04 06:03 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

I have a friend who lives in amsterdam who wants to know what the weight conversion of freshly picked shrooms is to dry. Anotherwords, what is the weight wet that would make up an 1/8 dry. ?

Thanks. keep in mind he lives in amsterdam where it is legal :smile:

dunno...
they reduce drastically when dried. why dont u use the doseage calculator here it should give a semi accurate answer.
I'd be tempted to say 30 grams wet though, maybe more it's alot of guess work from my standd point since i dunno about fresh consumtion to that detail...

It's 8 - 10% of the wet weight when dry.

So 35 grams wet would be roughly an eigth of an oz(3.5g) dry.

I've found that smaller mushrooms are closer to 8% dry matter and larger are closer to 10%. It probably depends a lot on the strain, too.

35 grams will dry to 3.5 grams but THEY ARENT EQUAL! Drying causes most of the psilocin in mushrooms to break down..fresh ones will be more potent and 25-30 grams will give you the trip of 3.5 grams dried. He won't od though as long as he keeps it under a pound :wink:

ive read some were that you would have to literaly consume your bodywieght to od on shrooms, but im unsure of how true this actually is. plus no one could eat that much in one setting but damn i bet the lab rat they injected it into to find out was tripping balls.

Its probably pretty true but how much mild altering could you take before you thought the window of your 10 floor apartment looks like a good exit or some such thing? I would imagine it would be a good deal over 100 grams and probably closer to a pound of fresh shrooms..more then you would stand eating but of course some psychies (sp?) are weaker then others.. Either way you'll be fine with a 35 gram dose..well maybe a little crazy for a few hours but thats what you want if your eating a large dose right?
