Dosage amount in pictures
    #3990818 - 03/30/05 04:38 PM (12 years, 2 days ago)

I know the amount you should eat to trip in both wet weight as well as in dry weight. But alas I have no scale. Can somebody post a picture or two that shows what that amount should look like? I am ingesting fresh mushrooms so a wet weight picture would be more helpful.

no two doses ever look the same. the mushroom may be thick stemmed, or hollow, it may be saturated with water, or on the drier side. there are far too many variables to make an estimate based on a picture.

best bet is to eat a big handfull and see what happens.

If you really want to be sure about your dose, you should consider drying them completely and getting some type of scale. Even a crappy scale made for food measuring would be much more accurate than trying to "eye" your dose.

i have one of those ghetto scales you use to measure herb. its like a pretty small metal scale where you clip the baggie on one side and its got marks going up this half circle that the arrow points to. does anyone know what weight units those lines equate to?

It should tell you right on the box how accurate the reading is. If you can get one that is even accurate to .1g that would work great for measuring a dose.

if you dont know what the markings mean. use a nickel. the average nickel weighs 5g. That should give you plenty close estimate.

If you can't get your hands on a scale at all, just use a pencil, some string and two ziplock bags. It's not going to be super accurate, but it'll be close enough, especially for fresh mushrooms.

I bought a small scale that weighs up to 150 grams and is accurate to .1g for less than 20 bucks. Works like a charm.
