What does a gram look like?
    #7378128 - 09/07/07 12:25 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

I saw a picture of a baggie of dried cubes on this site, but it did not specify the amount.

How much does a bag of 1 gram look like? I've never actually thought about how much you need to eat to consume 1 gram, is it like a few mushrooms or are they all cut up? What is the amount comparable to?

Wow that looks like a lot. I heard 1.5g is the best for first-timers, (I haven't done any at all yet) but I know that my friends won't be carrying around a scale when I do shrooms, so it's helpful to know what it looks like. There's still a couple things I don't know:

- do you only eat the caps of the shrooms (or are the stems just as potent)
- and if it's dried, that means I should take 4 caps which would = 1.5g?

The stems are slightly less potent but not enough to matter. Also I can't really give you an estimate on amount of caps as they range in size a lot.

Wow that calculator is really neat. But then again, it tells me to take 2g, and I dunno what it looks like :confused: (when it's dried of course)

If you get an 8th dried, then just estimate about 1/3 of the shrooms and that should be about a gram.

Hmm ok so I should just ask my friend "is this an 8th"? And if it is, I'll take 1/2 those shrooms. Sorry if it's a newbie topic but I really don't trust my friends. They pressure me to take a full 8th (3.5g) my FIRST time and I don't trust that shit. That's why it would be extremely helpful to see an image of 1.5g dried.

(I found one, but it was hard to tell the size since there was no object/coin to compare it to)

Ask and ye shall receive:

(1.5 dry grams)

Also, don't pay too much attention to pictures of wet mushrooms until you know what you're dealing with; they are over 90% water and thus will shrivel up to about 1/10th their original size and weight when dry.
Hope this helps.

Props to you for going into this with such care and respect. :thumbup:

The mushroom will be sure to treat you well in return!

Agreed. :smile:

And Land_Crab posted an ideal pic of a trial amount IMO. You can always take more an hour later if it's too little for you. Use caution doing that though as your judgement may be a bit skewed at that point.

My first trip on a partial 1/8 was great until I took the rest of it. That was fine in the end too but would have been more pleasurable if I'd have just stuck with the lower dose. I love the taste of shrooms though and was feeling so good that chewing the rest of em while feeling so good was ecstatic. I paid for it later getting caught in loops that I had been in before from other things and could have done without during my first shroom trip.

I'd rather see one have a less than groundbreaking experience and enjoy it than have a tough trip and not return to shrooms because of it. :smile:

Why trust equipment, just use your hands!

An unblemished US nickel (5 cents) weighs 5 grams. So you should easily be able to judge weight based off this.

But seriously, if you have purchased an '1/8' you can just estimate 'half' by eye.

lol, I'm surprised no one came back with this one...

Asking what a gram of shrooms looks like is kind of like asking how space a pound of feathers takes up.

Some mushies are dense and solid and one mushie can be 7-10g dried.
Some mushies are hollow and small and one mushie can weigh less than 0.05g each.

And in my humble opinion, I'm much more a fan of 3g comprising 30 caps than 3g being half the stem off one cap...

Ya thanks, I've been meaning to do shrooms for a couple years now but they either: don't show up that often, or when they do it's not the ideal time to do them. I even did some small hits of acid over the summer, but that's because I could feel that those days would be absolutely perfect.

One thing I was wondering - with the lemon trick, could I just sqeeze lemon juice onto a dried shroom, let it sit for a minute, then eat it? Or does it have to be in drink form?

That's a great way to think ahead before a trip dude, I'm sure you'll have a good experience. If you take an eighth for your FIRST time having a hallucinogenic trip, it's probably a bad idea, so good for you for asking first. I took 1 and a half grams dry my first time and it was good I took a dose like this because I would've tripped way too hard for my own good at the time had we gotten more.

Also, some words of advice, try and stick with your friends, you don't want to trip alone on your very first trip
