how do you generally estimate weight of mushies without a scale?

no clue, hehe, i usually just eye it out by what i think i will trip off of.... sometimes i have bad estimates, and end up eating a lot more than i wanted hehehe.... just buy a cheap ass scale.

I made this scale in 20 minutes and it's accurate to at least half a gram.
There's no need to make it perfect if you calibrate it before using it. Add water to one side until the cups are completely level (use something behind as a guide).
Then add your mushies to one side and add water from a syringe until the cups are balanced again. Water weighs 1 gram per ml. So if you had to add 9ml of water then the mushies weigh 9 grams. Easy as that!

i was kindof wondering how to just eyeball it. the shrooms are 5 inches and the caps are 1.5 inches in diameter. the stem is a liittle over a quarter of an inch thick. there is a bigger one that 6.5 inches tall with a cap of 2.25 inches in diameter and the stem is a little over a half inch thick. these are all undried freshly picked.

any estimates in dry weight?

Don't eyeball it, you will find yourself in a world of shit.
You don't deserve shrooms if you're going to be completely irresponsible with them

Visit your friendly local head shop, they have way cheap ass scales that'll measure up to 1/4oz. I don't recommend eyeballing, you'll be sorry.

The other thing is you don't want to be completely disappointed by taking too little. Just make or buy some scales and then you'll know exactly what the story is, there's nothing worse than eyeballing a whole lot and then wondering.. "shit, i wonder if I had too much" when the trip is kicking in.
All it takes is a coathanger, a syringe and 2 plastic cups!

you can buy a decent scale for $5 at a head shop.. why don't you just take our advise and do it? eyeballing doesn't tell you a damn thing.. there's no way of us or you knowing how many grams somthing weighs by looking at it.

presicion is the way to go my friend.

1 level teaspoon of finely crushed dry cubes is about 1g.
