Do I weigh before drying or after?
    #4547882 - 08/17/05 08:05 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

I'm looking at Vaults of Erowid ( http://www.erowid.org/plants/mushrooms/mushrooms_effects.shtml ) and I see dosages in grams. I take it that when we speak about how many grams we ingest then we're talking about before the water has been dried out, right?

no, those dosages listed at erowid are dried completely

Just think of it like this Shrooms are 90% water so what ever you have wet will 1/10th that amount dry.

yeah most dealers and people dry their shrooms before eating them, so like everyone has been saying.. the dosage amounts are based on dried shrooms.. but some sites offer dosage amounts for both wet and dry shrooms.. laterz

Yes, if you're talking about wet grams

When you weigh some mushrooms that have not been dried out they're called wet grams. Wet refering to the mushroom in that state.

Dry grams refer to the weight of the mushroom after being dehydrated.
