mushroom powder weight
    #4385013 - 07/08/05 09:16 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

theoretically, if one were to have an unknown amount of dried mushrooms (between 3-6 grams) and wanted to find out the approximate weight without a scale by using volume (a tsp. of powdered fungus for instance) would anyone happen to know or be willing to find out how much a tsp. of powdered fungus weighs?

any help would be very greatly appreciated.

well wang to be honest if yor going to be messing around with mush it is a good decision to just go buy a scale. even if its one of those cheapo postal scales, alot better than a tsp.

im not worried about dosing really, just interested in how much is there to see if wha i paid was worth it. i just wanted to see if this was established information (like how a tsp. of syrian rue seeds weighs approx. 3.5g)

It's a matter of density not volume. For instance a tsp of lead and a tsp of feathers, is going to weigh different amounts. The best thing to do is to buy a scale like lemon_lw said. GL!

My guess would be 200g/liter, but I'll check & post when I know for sure.

ok, i just crunched some numbers. the metric volume of a txp. is 4.7ml so if i remember correctly this should be right..... 93.7g/500ml = .88g/4.7ml

After tapping it alittle it went down to 8,5ml (left pic)

Weight between 1,8-1,9g.

1 teaspoon of shrooms is .75-1.25g usually.

More that 2 spoons and it begins to be hard to tell....

However, pennys and nickles have SPECIFIC weights. :wink:

Check the link in my sig. :smile:
