dose amount
    #3718306 - 02/02/05 11:08 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

alright so I got an ounce of cubies and they are whole. They sort of fell into my lap so i don't have any access to a scale. How many whole roughly will equal 4-4.3g. Also i was wondering if Paxil has any effects on the potency of the trip.

Well, you will need a scale to mesure it out, you can pick up cheap ones at office supply stores I hear. Or just find a friend with one. Paxil is an SSRI, right? I'm not so familer with it but read up, this page might be useful http://www.erowid.org/chemicals/ssris/ssris.shtml

Happy tripping :grin:.

If you have absoulutely no way to get to a scale but know yoru bag is an OZ you can break them up into pieces and split into equal parts as best as possible.

Best thing to do is get a scale. Mushrooms come in to many varieties of sizes.

Yes you might be able to eyeball it...

To be sure (without a scale) bend out a wire clothes hanger, leave a small curve in the middle, attach what you think is half and half and see if it balances out when the hanger is put on a string or something.

Then repeat the process until you got 1/8ths

There are probably some variables, and maybe the hanger isn't the best tool for the job, but use that principle.  :shrug:

Oh and buy a scale!  Even if its one of those cheap hand scales from that shady convienince store on the edge of town that sells small "coin bags", "love roses", and vials. :grin:

take a ruler, place that over a pencil (one of the wooden ones that is like a hexagon with some flat sides) that is taped to the table. balance the "6" of the ruler over this point. then use household objects to measure how big your dose is.

a credit card weighs about 5 grams (5.1)

a guitar pic weighs about .5 grams

a dime weighs 2.2 grams

a nickel weighs 4.9 grams

a penny weighs 2.5 grams

so if you put a credit card on one side, your shrooms plus the guitar pic on the other, you end up with 4.6 grams. using this method you should be accurate to +/- .5 grams.

happy tripping!

also, to add to that, as a more standard unit of measure, a dollar bill is 1 gram

MOST nickels are 5 grams. I've had a few come up as 4.9, but most are 5 grams.

My first 1/2 ounce was divided between my friend and I. We divided it up without a scale into two portions. We weighed it after wards and there were exactly 7 grams in each pile. I've done this three other times with mushrooms. Until recently, I didn't have a scale and I had to ALWAYS use my friend's scale(which was extremely annoying)... I suggest you buy a cheap scale; I got mine at a head-shop for $30 and it works better than my friends $80 scale.

I would just do it by eye. Want a 4 gram trip? Divide in half, again, again. Take one of your newly created piles, add a shroom or two, and that's that.

Paxil will mess with it, so you have to eat them all.  :nut:
