Measuring powdered shrooms
    #4214089 - 05/24/05 02:28 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

AFOAF ground up about 45 grams dried shroom to store and use later. Is there a way to measure doses without a accurate scale? AFOAF's postal scale is not good with small amounts. Can some other unit of measurement be used? Also storage is glass jar with tinfoil, rubber band and super tight lid, Will this keep shroom powder dry for indefinite period of time or does he need to take other precautions, he would prefer to not use a disscant chemical.

The powder should last indefinitely. I don't see any need for using desiccant there. You should get a scale to weigh out accurate doses.

Thanks for the quick responses. He has a digital postal scale, just not very accurate for anything less than say 5 grams. What about some kind of small measuring scoop? He knows you are supposed to be measuring weight, but can't a volume scoop come close?

Measure out 10 grams, then divide in 4 parts to obtain 2.5 grams.

I disagree with those who have said that no desiccant is neccessary. If there is the slightest amount of moisture inside the bottle the awesome quantity of surface area due to the shredding would allow for spoiling. As some of the matter was metabolized more water would be released CH4 + 20 = H2O + CO2. A desiccant doesn't affect the powder around it any any reactive way so one shouldn't be concerned about tainting it. Just make sure to use a sealed desiccant container like those found in medicine bottles.

"There is a world beyond ours, a world that is far away, nearby, and invisible. And there is where God lives, where the dead live, the spirits and the saints, a world where everything has already happened and everything is known. That world talks. It has a language of its own. I report what it says. The sacred mushroom takes me by the hand and brings me to the world where everything is known. It is they, the sacred mushrooms, that speak in a way I can understand. I ask them and they answer me. When I return from the trip that I have taken with them, I tell what they have told me and what they have shown me."

Any of you people know of any over the counter drugs that are fairly cheap that will have the  sealed dissicant container in the bottle? Id hate to go pulling pill bottles off the shelf at the store and opening then looking for desiccant. Store may not think to kindly on me doin that :wink:
