So why get this over some non-gun branded scale that also measures in grains? It's not like "grain" is some super special gun specific measurement. I guess you can't load a mortar with the amazon one but 300 grains seems like more than enough
1 level US teaspoon of granulated sugar is about 4g, so 1/8th tsp would be about 500mg. How close KSM 66 comes to that really depends on its density compared to granulated sugar - and it also can vary depending on factors like air humidity.
It's really not a good idea to take nootropics if you can't measure accurately. I'd recommend getting a scale like this one: [link]
500/10 = 50 doses. So either you need to be very exacting in measuring volume and divide the 500 into 50 equal volume doses, or you need to get a scale that you can measure 10mg with. Example
Get a scale. This one is pretty cheap, and if you can afford drugs you can afford this. A little over $20, and at least in my area it actually has free one shipping with Amazon Prime. Funnily enough the majority of the people I know who have scales have this one.
No one can tell from just looking. In my experience, it always looks like too little and ends up being exactly what I was told. Never ever trust your eyes (or a friend’s).
Regardless, you’ll need one of these. Read up on doses and pack them yourself. Never eyeball it.
20 bucks man, here
$20 on Amazon:
That brand of scale is surprisingly accurate for the price. That's the exact pair I use and they came calibrated right on the money. None of them are particularly good at weighing under a gram though. If you're thinking of weighing powder for microdosing (or weighing DMT doses) I would look at getting a pair of milligram scales like these: [link]
Speaking from personal experience, this scale kicks ass
That scale has seen maaaany substances. In fact, used it just the other day for some MDMA.
[link] buy this too cuz the last thing you wanna do is eyeball smtn as potent as 4-aco-dmt this is a nice starter scale at a moderate price and will make ur drug journeys a lot safer
If you want any degree of accuracy, yes. You also need filter funnels, bubblers, and a reasonably accurate means of weighing. You need an aquarium pump, flowmeter and stopwatch so you can calculate the volume of air passing through the bubbler.
You can buy usable balances from Amazon or ebay. This one claims to be good to 1 milligram, which is hard to believe. I use a jeweler's scale, with is reliable to 10 milligrams. Barium chloride is available cheaply from Amazon.
You can buy CO2 sensors, too, but they are not cheap and you still have to measure the volume of air to calculate the total CO2 produced.
I'd recommend a milligram scale so that you can measure exactly how much potassium and sodium you're getting from these spoons. I use this one. Use the guidance in the FAQ to figure out what numbers to hit.
If you're gonna spend $10 on those, you might as well buy a full featured scale like this one for only $15 more. On the frequently bought together part, it lists the scale, a scooper, and empty pill capsules for $40.
>I'm not affiliated with any of the company's that produce/distribute the product(s) I promoted (including amazon). Just trying to save you a few bucks
This one is good: [link]
But make sure you don't ever put anything more than 20 g on it. It is kind of fragile. Also, if you are weighing something really small and less than 5 mg or so, it will work better if you put a penny or something on it with your substance and subtract the weight of the penny. These scales aren't as accurate with really lightweight things.
You need a milligram scale if you are taking supplements in the form of loose powder. I use this one.
A teaspoon is a measure of volume, not weight. Ignore that part of the nutrition label and focus on the weight. Use that to determine how much to pour onto the scale.
I have two. I use this one the most. It is extremely accurate if you were ever planning to weigh other things with it. This is not a scale for weighting over 20 grams at a time Carats, grams, oz, ozt (troy ounce), dwt (penny weight), gn (grain) [link]
I really like my Lee manual, I use it all the time and prefer it's layout over others. So long as you don't get one from a bullet manf. you should be good as the ones from the bullet makers only contain data for their bullets.
For a affordable digital scale I'd toss out the AWS Gemini 20(link below) I use it to load for my .308 precision gun.
I weigh other things which require mg measurements and have this along with the standard AWS 1/10th gram scale. I like to be accurate.
I use this scale for all of my powders. You may be able to find it locally or one like it, a lot of headshops sell them, but make sure it can measure 0.001 g or 1 mg. It's not perfect, but it's better than nothing. The capsule will make it be absorbed faster than a tablet, but slower than a liquid when taken orally. If you smoke it or boof it, it'll be absorbed much faster which is responsible for the rush.
Get a 0.001 scale NOT a 0.01...
This one is good for the price:
Measure the weight several times to get it correct. Only mess with this stuff if you're ready to experience some intense shit. Always have a sitter if you go for bigger doses..
Would that scale work? I ask because I can get it 2 day shipping.
Get a scale before you fuck up and do something stupid. [link]
The Gemini 20 on Amazon
Easily the most affordable and accurate scale on the market. I couldn't recommend more.
Of course, you'll still have to use volumetric dosing, but the Gemini 20 is the best drug related purchase I've ever made right after reagent tests.
Dried or fresh? Dried and ground with a cheap coffee grinder and then weighed was much more consistent for me. This scale works great:
Once you've settled on a dosage size, load up a 0 or 00 gel capsule and note how 'full' it is...then fill future capsules to that position more or less.
nutravitashop.com is a great site with good prices, you just need a milligram scale. There's a really great one for like $20, it's cheap too! Here's a link
I use 50-75mg DMAA, 200-300mg caffeine, and 3.2-4g beta alanine. I also take 5g creatine, a multivitamin daily, and an appetite suppressant/fat burner daily, but not necessarily before I workout, usually in the mornings.
Citrulline Malate is also really good, I'm pretty sure the clinical dosage is 6-8g but do your research, and that's for anything you plan on adding as well. You probably won't need anything other than those as those are the only things that really give a noticeable difference. Personally, when I do my custom pre-workout vs a company's pre-workout, I can't tell the difference.
I also put in a sugar free Hawaiian Punch packet or half a packet. Make sure to get different flavors because you'll get tired of them quick. I also recommend taking it like a shot if you forego the flavors for cost because that shit will taste horrendous.
If you plan on doing this regularly, spend the $30 and get a scale like this one. I use it all the time, worth the money
The Gemini 20 is the most popular scale around on /r/drugs You can find it on Amazon, but there might be other places that have it too.
I don't know how good this scale is so can't really comment on that.
I had a GemPro 250, and I opted to downgrade to this one
I find that it is just as accurate, just slightly more cumbersome to use. I would rather spend the extra money on components / dies.
This is the cheapest one that I could find. It does a reasonably good job and is actually on sale right now.
When I first got my phyto, I thought it looked really small. I didn't weight it, but as I used it I realized that you use a really small amount each time. The first time I used it, I measured out 50mg, thinking it was 5mg.
I use this 'un [link]
I use it a few times a week. The only con is that the measurement "sticks" a bit with increments less than 5mg. What I mean is, if you are adding 1mg at a time, the display might not change, and then it will change up by 5mg when you have added 5mg. So, while it does technically have 1mg precision, if you really really need 1mg accuracy you might want to double check.
Other than that, it's been great.
Have used mesomorph and really liked it, but since I'm pretty frugal I now go for just the pure stuff. I picked it up at nutrivitashop.com and got a milligram scale (SUPER IMPORTANT), and I've never paid so little for such a great pre-workout before. The one downside is the time. It takes a lot of patience measuring out ingredients, especially because you can't just plop down some powder and you have to be careful not to put too much. For the money, you might just find it's worth paying a bit extra for mesomorph and getting the ease of a scoop. If I had any left, I liked to vary between choices like whether I wanted mesomorph or my stuff.
My go-to formula is
Mesomorph has all of those ingredients in basically those dosages, with extra stuff too tho
I'm used to it being shit.
Still $30 CAD lol. Googled conversion because I was curious. $1 CAD = 0.74 USD according to Google right now. Still pretty shit IMO.
For beginner dose it seems to vary, I experimented on Saturday for the first time and started at 10mg since it's possible to do more later if you need to. I had planned on adding onto that dose after an hour if I wanted to, but I was enjoying the (fun but modest) effects for more like 2-3 hours. I did end up adding another 10mg but it was at the 3 hour mark so it mainly prolonged the subtle effects.
After a couple hours after those two 10mg doses, I did something that was closer to 15-20mg. That amount took me from the subtle effects into something that was quite a bit stronger but still functional (I could walk, talk, most everything normally). At that point I seemed to "connect" a lot of memories that I seemed to have forgotten during my days of DXM usage, and after the whole thing was over I felt like I had regained part of my brain or soul or something, and felt like a better person overall.
I stuck to low doses because I really don't enjoy mind blowing experiences much anymore and I needed to be somewhat functional. When I have time to experiement more I'll try something higher and see what that brings.
That scale is cheap and very accurate.
As for how to... simple. That scale comes with tweezers, and your amp delivery should be in a small ziplock bag. Use the tweezers to drop some pinches on to the scale until you hit your desired dose, then dump it on something like a large dinner plate. Then you take one end of your open gel cap in each hand and use one end to shovel the powder into the other end. It's very quick and easy. Generally I put together 30 caps at once and it takes me about 15 minutes total. Since you're only putting 30mg or so in each cap just about any size cap will do.
$58 for 2g powder, $20 for the scale, $7 for a few hundred gel caps. $85 total investment for 66 30mg pills about the exact strength as 30mgs of adderall.
Generally the premade speed pills you find on the markets have caffeine or other cuts in them, and they're always much more expensive and much less effective. I've been using this method in place of adderall for a good while now with no problems at all. After trying aboout a dozen amphetamine vendors I stuck with SSBros gear since it's by far the best I've found and very honestly almost identical strength to adderall. After getting bunk batches from other vendors where it did nothing or I had to take 200mg+ to match 30-40mg adderall... yeah, finding Superspeedbros was a godsend. I've used the USA distributor and the main account both repeatedly. The USA reseller is faster and safer, but a bit more expensive. Either way they're both legit and SSBros have been making their own amp since SR1.
Tip: Generally to central US the main account takes around 20 days and the usa account takes 2-10 depending on stock levels. And yeah, I know I have to sound like a shill but once you try it you'll understand. :)
how about this one?
and should i put it under my tongue and let it absorb then swallow or just do the old "toss n wash" method
Yea. I'm glad that I figured it out. It'll make the tiny, cute little container of CBD last a lot longer. ;)
Here's a link to the scale, if you're interested. It's pretty good. Not as accurate as a really expensive scale, but definitely good enough.
I would say orally and 15-20mg for first time. Make sure to buy a mg scale so you aren't eye balling it....
No I got a milligrams capable scale one used for precious stones and made a powder of my mushrooms that I added to my chocolate preparation.
I also had to learn the proper way to melt and prepare my organic dark chocolate. The method is called "chocolate tempering".
havent tried anyone of these two, GEMINI-20 Portable MilliGram
Isnt that great makes an error about +- 2-3 grams, if you are patient you can order a better one from us amazon.
Exactly, powder is no more "dangerous" than any other DXM product, BUT you've got to measure your shit accurately. Here's a product so inexpensive, yet so nice, I think that everyone should have one of these in their arsenal: [link]
I'd like to buy a scale for when I get some, I'm just not sure of the scale to choose. Hard to find one that's relatively "cheap", but still very accurate. Although, I have found one that is acceptable, 20g x 1mg, not bad at all. [link] . (Going to assume I can post this link.. let's see.)
We always suggest using a balance/scale for dosing as scoops are highly unreliable in measuring. We do not include any type of scoop as they are not reliable nor do they measure in mg. All powders have different densities and therefore they shouldn't be measure using one.
We do not carry scoops, as we feel they promote the misuse of products. You should never use any compound without accurately weighing it with a milligram scale. It's for your own safety. Our customer's safety is priority #1.
We have found that the Gemini 20 is a decent scale at a decent price. Of course, this isn't an official endorsement of it. I have provided a link below.
Do yourself a favor and get a scale. Volumetric measuring is very inaccurate because its not a liquid and different densities, etc.
Keep track of how much you are taking, how you are taking it and what you are ingesting after/before your dose.
Experiment! Look into potentiates. Find your optimal dose. Use the search function in the sub. There are thousands of posts out there to dig through.
Best scale for measuring doses.
Are you sure this is MDMA? that powder looks pretty fine to be straight up MDMA.
Please do yourself a favor and buy a test kit before taking this stuff. Also buy yourself a $20 scale from amazon.. below is the link for the one I bought..
Yup, this one.
It's not perfect, I'd never use it for something with 1-2mg doses, but even at 5mg it's surprisingly accurate for the price, and above 10mg it's very good.
After a year plus of use and abuse including tossing and dropping mine the 10g test weight always weighs within 1-2mg.
Yeah, Mesomorph I have on hand and it's definitely the best pre-mixed PWO out there. I use the GEMINI-20 scale. How many mg do you think you're using?
You can get a jewlers scale that goes the the thousandths place (.001/ 1mg) for $21.50 on Amazon. Why put up with something shitty when fixing your issue is so cheap.
Just an FYI it's accurate down to ~5mg.
Don't forget a scale. This is often overlooked. Its important to measure your dose. Don't eyeball it.
Place the 10g weight and concentrate pad on the scale, don't zero out, then measure out your dose. The reason for adding the weight and not zeroing out is because the scale won't register anything under 0.015g. It also comes with tweezers which helps with handling the concentrate pad.
American Weigh Scales GEMINI-20 Portable MilliGram Scale, 20 by 0.001 G [link]
Edited to correct weights.
Still working on finding a good scale. Any recommendations? So far I've found this scale
Just get a scale or volumetrically dose your whole batch at once, I always volumetrically dose when we're looking at a chem like etizolam which is active at 1mg, otherwise some powders tend to clump up so you may encounter a pretty dense chunk of chem so be careful.
Pretty much the gold standard:
I personally use a microgram scale though that I bought off an Organic Chem prof at my local university.
You might be tempted to get this one. I did. It won't register small amounts and I suspect it under measures. I used it to weigh out some 2-FMA yesterday for the first time. First time with the scale and trying the chemical. What I thought was an absolutely minimal dose ended up being pretty overwhelming.
this one weighs to 0.001g and is around $20 as I said in my earlier post. It comes with calibration weights. I don't know what your idea of cheap is but if you can afford several grams of an RC you can afford a scale.
It sounds like you are rationalizing your decision to not use a proper measuring method. Do you have a pyrex liquid measuring cup? A water bottle with graduated markings on it?
I guess it doesn't really matter though. Be safe and don't OD :)
I would say it is close or at five grams due to the size of the crystals. When these crystals are crushed there will be more volume because the chemical will be in smaller particles and not bound together in a more condensed space.
I'd advice to by a scale for safety purposes. I'd also advise on getting a multi-panel reagent kit to ensure the product you received is in-fact what was advertised. There are dozens of possible other products that look similar and have similar effects and results on a single reagent. Some can be deadly like PMMA and PMA; This has caused deaths in the past.
Be safe. Buy a scale; Not just to ensure you got a good deal....
Safety should always come first.
This scale works just fine:
It's an investment in your health to use a medical tool like MDMA.
Pure MDMA should have little comedown, little hangover, dominantly euphoric, and primarily empathogenic in nature.
Are you guys using scales to get it down to as small amount as you can? I know fentanyl is in the micro-dose range but be careful with that stuff.
[link] Good cheap scale if you don't have one already.
Yeah, usable "lab" scale good enough for milligrams costs like $50 or under, so it shouldn't be too expensive for anyone. Scoops are good when you need to dose something over 100mg, but once you go under that they become much less useful and dosing something active on milligram range without scale can be dangerous.
Also when you get new noots from new supplier you should always go for sub milligram test dose (you can never know if it's Bromo Dragonfly or something equally horrible that just kills you when you take over 1mg) and that is pretty impossible without scale. Sending them for testing is ofcourse better, but understandably that's not always option and very expensive.
Here is very good and cheap mg scale:
1) Absolutely, get this one:
2) GVG - form a small wad of chore boy copper scrubber (walgreens) into a flat disc small enough to not touch the sides of the glass and not too compact to prevent airflow. Melt the DMT on to the scrubber by heating it first and dropping the DMT on top. Load it and vape like you would herb using a torch lighter, I recommend the Jobon ZB-529 because it has a large but soft clean burning flame and a large tank.
3) I have and always will use my method. 30 mg is my dose, the sandwich method may need more due to pyrolysis.
Extremely good scale for anything from 2cb, to mdma, to weed, to shrooms. Stop guessing and be responsible and get a scale.
Awesome. Thanks for the advice guys.
I'm definitely going to go the scale rout. I am thinking about this one [link]
Man that will make things easier.
Any suggestions on water? I have read where people have had luck chasing with water. Is it better to just mix it with water?
I know that Oxy (which I used to do) will not be wasted if it goes down your throat, but H is much less potent that way.
So what do you do to prevent this? Does chasing with water/mixing with water help prevent this?
I bought this scale from another site for about the same price. Hasn't failed me. I don't really trust it for <10mg weights, but I just weigh a capsule, then add desired amount, and if it checks out with the cap, I assume a +-2 variance. Good enough for me. More than good with 25mg+ amounts.
you need to realize that i dont like ANY of the digital scales.....i think they seriously suck. i cannot see how they can accurately measure 10mg or 40mg of this light fluffy powder these nootropic guys sell.
i think the one many have used is this one:
but i am not recommending it
You could always spring for a new shiny milligram scale. AWS makes a good one for about $20.
Plus you'll probably be the only one of your friends with a milligram scale. :P
i just bought this one, works great so far i guess, and comes with a 10 year warranty. also, i got free 2 day shipping 'cause of this new Amazon Student thing! great deal.
I may be an asshat, but I am a correct asshat.
I guess you two are the only two dipshits around here who don't know about affordable MG scales and talk out of your ass. Here you go, wham, bam, and corrected. You can apologize and tell me how you were wrong whenever you want.
This scale will work perfectly fine to dose out ~20mg doses. At worst you'll dose 17-23mg for 20, but in reality I've found it to be more reliable than that.
Yeah, that is true. It's possible OP could be more sensitive than usual to shrooms, but that isn't really much reason for the terrible experiences.
Measuring mushrooms will never be that accurate in the first place, though, as you can never tell how much psilocybin (the ingredient in shrooms that makes you trip) is in a particular mushroom.
Since I know you're fairly new to /r/drugs, and I'm on adderall, here's some cool information about another similar substance.
If you don't already know about 4-aco-dmt, it is a highly regarded research chemical that is both very safe and has been around for more that 50 years. It is very, very similar to mushrooms, as it is generally accepted that it degrades into psilocin in your body. Psilocybin also degrades into psilocin.
It is much more consistent with the dosing, as it is a pure chemical, and therefore much more predictable than shrooms, never a bad thing.
One more thing, it's legal in most countries, so you can literally order it to your doorstep, legally, on the internet.
You will need a milligram scale if you plan to try it though. Here's a great one: [link]
Have a nice day :)
First of all you don't even know for certain if it's MDMA, you really should consider buying a test kit to make sure. For that matter without a scale you have no way of knowing if it's actually 1g of product.
Eyeballing drugs that have small effective doses by crushing them up into lines like you describe is just a bad idea in general. You can buy a milligram scale for less than $25 on amazon and get 2 day shipping if you really don't want to wait, this is the one I have and seems to work fine: [link]
The only really "safe" way to eyeball drugs (once you have a known quantity, so you should still get the scale) is to dissolve it in some kind of liquid and do volumetric dosing. For example, if you know for certain that you have 1 gram of molly and completely dissolve it in, say, 100mL of liquid, then each 10mL of that liquid will contain 100mg (of course that also depends on having a measuring cup or test tube or whatever that measures fluid volumes precisely enough). That said, I have no idea what MDMA would actually dissolve in.
I know that MDMA is active orally considering that it often comes in pills, I have no idea if it can be insufflated or not.
I agree. Why take a chance? Spend 22.95 & get a well calibrated milligram scale with calibration weights like this one:
There was a thread on DMT-Nexus in which many members recommended this one: [link]
Well comparatively speaking, 25mg of 4-AcO-DMT felt a lot stronger than an eighth of shrooms the one time when I took that much. It was more like 4.5g than 3.5g. You'll trip pretty hard if you take that amount. Could be rough. You might want to try a dose of about 15mg before going that high, and then maybe 17mg or 18mg the next time after that if it's not quite enough for you. Personally, 18mg is the highest dose I feel comfortable with, but everybody's different. Like a lot of RC's, it has a steep dose/response curve. I would strongly suggest getting a scale before you mess with this stuff. This one is fairly cheap and works well enough so long as you make sure to weigh your doses at least a couple times. You can measure it out and put them into gel caps for long term storage. No muss, no fuss.
I bought this one because it was the cheapest i could find
It wont give you a reading until your weight goes over 10 milligrams (because it centers to zero by program so the numbers don't constantly shift) and every time i weigh something and shit it around the little weighing pad it differs by 2-3 milligrams. i use it often and it works for me very well since i never had to weigh anything under 12 milligrams but i wish i got something that i could use more comfortably for weighing nugs. it weights up to 20 grams but even with a small piece of cardboard on top of the weighing pad its bothersome to weigh more than 4 grams in nugs. but its surprisingly accurate once you figure out how to work through its kinks.
Thanks, everything I needed to know! Do you suggest this scale? or would it be too cheap to bet my health on?
Edit: also what forum on bluelight would you find most RC information in?
Sure. All you need once you have the bulk powder are capsules and a way to measure. You can get a digital scale for cheap, and the 00 size capsules I buy are usually around $10 or so for a giant bag.
Tbh I've stopped weighing the powders because the 00 size capsules don't really hold much more than a gram of even the densest powders. Most of the stuff I put into capsules is dosed in grams so it's pretty easy to eyeball what I'm doing. But definitely get a scale if you decide to start doing this so you have a solid idea of how much powder equates to how many mg or grams.
why does it have to be accurate to centigrams? If its for weed you can get one that is accurate to .1 and you'll be fine. If you are looking for a scale for shit like yayo, molly or rc's you should probably get one that is accurate to milligrams. [link] is what i use and it is great.
EDIT: it is great for everything except weed, these smaller more accurate scales have small weighing surfaces making them ideal for small amounts of powder but terrible for weighing even a gram of weed.
This is pretty good advice, although I (as well as a few others I know) tend to have nasty reactions to (suspected) MDA, so the test kits aren't 100% for people like me.
And you'll need a milligram scale for dosing, this one will do for MDXX chems: [link]
Well, you're probably going to have to volumetric dose your Clonaz to even hope to do this reasonably. 50/50 Distilled White Vinegar and Everclear should do the trick for your solution. 50mg in 100mL. (Links to accurate scale and volumetric flask included)
Place the flask on the balance, add the 50mg CAREFULLY. Fill to the mark on the neck. You can YouTube proper use of a volumetric flask.
Makes your current dose 2mL. Use a 3mL syringe so you can get the tenths pretty precisely. When I want to use GBL, that's what I use, and its been consistent. I'd start dosing your current dose for 2 weeks to get the feel of volumetric dosing.
Reduce your Clonaz dose by 0.2mg (0.4mL) every 2 weeks until off.
W^(0): 2.0mL, W^(2): 1.6mL, W^(4): 1.2mL, W^(6): 0.8mL, W^(8):0.4mL, Done. Takes 8-10 weeks.
I'm not as familiar with phenibut, but I'd probably stagger the tapering off, so you don't murder your brain. On week 3 of your Clonaz taper, start your Phenibut taper.
W^(3): 2.0g, W^(5): 1.6g, W^(7): 1.2g, W^(9): 0.8g, W^(11): 0.4g, Done. At the start of week 13, you're clear of both substances.
As a proof of strength-of-self, flush any remaining. Write notes to yourself on a mirror for encouragement (sharpie comes off with rubbing alcohol - or just dry erase)
Hope this helps. Feel free to PM me along your Journey or when you're done.
When you have responsibilities in life that you can't take time to be absent from, a long slow taper such as what's recommended in this taper guide is highly recommended.
My SO and I have been on this plan since Jan. 21 and we're both down to 10 gpd from a Max of 40-50 gpd.
It does seem like a lot of work, but once you get into the routine it really isn't that bad.
Get a scale, similar to this milligram scale
Also, if you need a convenient way to dose during the day, you can mix your doses with a little bit of water and store them in small reusable bottles like these bottles
It seems like a lot of work but it really isn't, and it's worth it. Once you start, you will quickly adjust to the routine.
Also don't forget about supplements like Agmatine, magnesium (at night), DLPA, etc. they really help a lot.
I really like this one. Very accurate for weighing CBD isolates.
Buddy we can literally see the ref... here's a regular link...
American Weigh Scales Gemini-20 Portable Milligram Scale, 20g x 0.001g [link]
Is that it? I'll order right now. $53 CAD.
If you can afford a luxury like agmatine, you can afford a scale. A Gemini-20 is cheap enough.
You need a .001 g scale. This is a great one for the price on Amazon:
I have this one, can confirm its real nice. Here is the same one but cheaper:
I guess it depends on how good you are at guesstimating. Scales are cheap. Its good to know how much you take and the effects you feel from that amount. I linked the scale I use. It way more then you would need for kratom but you never know when you might need to weight stuff in the milligram range.
If it's a highly accurate, MilliGrams (0.001=1mg) digital scale, then you should have no problem weighing out any increment. You shouldn't have to "put heaps on" for it to register. They also make handy micro spoon/spatulas, that work great in handling the crystal/powder to put in caps. This is a great scale for the $:
This is what I use...

I have these 2..
This scale is kick ass, and only $20 on Amazon! A micro spoon spatula is nice to have too...
Not too bad, only $20
Time for a new scale. This one is kick ass and only $20 on Amazon!
Weigh your dosage, put in capsules or parachutes and swallow. Here's a great scale for $20 on Amazon:
My scale goes down to 1mg (0.001g). He's going to get a better measurement using a scale then a solution. Here is the one I use
found it, perfect! thank you
for anyone else interested:
Get this for an mg scale.
Yeah, that's the one I want. Comes with a calibrating weight as well.
A scale like this will save you a lot of money in the long run. All supplements are cheaper if you buy powder and weigh them yourself.
Here's the scale I have: [link]
Is it good enough?
You might be able to pick up a scale and split the capsules into smaller portions.
Hmm, not sure about a full guide.
Amazon has scales.
And also 10mg micro scoops.
i got that guy, but i dont think it comes close to say, 0.25mg no?
Frankford Arsenal DS-750 Digital Reloading Scale $29.88 don't do it man, that scale is just SOOO horrible. Get one of Gemini 20's and the WOAW one instead, or both so you can cross check. I have owned all 3, the frankford scale was never once accurate from they day I got it and would have easily blown up my rifle had I used any loads weighed by it. Frankford Arsenal would not replace the scale.
Of the other two, I have had the Gemini20 for about a year and have never had an issue with it, and the WOAW I only recently got under recommendation from other re loaders and it's been solid.
Two options for CHEAP sanity checks. I have both AND a balance beam so that mistakes like this don't happen. Nothing worse than blowing up a gun :-(
Buy this: [link]
Its only $24
If you can't weigh it, then you don't have any options. Get this and call it a day. [link]
Microdosing is a game of fractions, and you can't get that without an accurate method of dosing.
something like this wouldnt be able to meausure my dosage?
and thanks, if that isnt sufficint to weigh out doses, I'm ordering from ricklabs
At my clinic they said they have the ability to measure 0.5 mg for a patient and have in the past. They did that when patients were at the very end of their taper and they didn't want to jump for 1mg to 0. When I asked about 0.1mg they said they hadn't done that before.
I'm guessing/ my gut feeling is that at most places accuracy is going to be well under a mg.. which is very easy to measure accurately in the scheme of things (1mg dose is about 0.1 grams of 10mg/mL concentrate which is pretty typical accuracy in the cheapest pocket scales so having actual calibrated equipment should make that quite easily, liquid measurement or weight).
This machine (which looks a lot like the one they use at my clinic): [link] seems to measure accurately +/- ~0.01 ml or ~.1mg if 10mg/mL concentrate is used.
I'm guessing in the scheme of things you are getting 9mg +/- 0.1mg (so 8.99mg is worst case scenario), if things were off by a whole mg (or multiple mgs) on a consistent basis it would be pretty easy for nursing staff to be slipping hundreds (or perhaps thousands of mg) under the table.. which is something (the only thing?) the authorities/DEA is looking for when they come into check american clinics.
If you are super concerned about it, mg scales are relatively cheap and if they give you unwatered down doses, it shouldn't be a big deal to double check your dose when you are at the window... this ~$25 one on Amazon had served me well when using it for other purposes, many moons ago: [link]
Malcolm, I'm happy that you're happy :)
When you use too much yeast, the dough overproofs and deflates (and smells like alcohol). The local flour didn't deflate, because it didn't have enough protein/gluten to trap the gas.
Smaller quantities of ingredients, unless you have a jeweler's scale, should always be measured in volume (tablespoons/teaspoons).
Oven thermometers are pretty much useless. I know you've invested quite a lot into this endeavor, but, if you're ever going to track your stone temperature properly, you're going to need an infrared thermometer. Amazon has some for pretty cheap, although I'm guessing shipping is going to drive the price up. All IR thermometers come from China, so you might look into getting one from China directly from an outfit like dealextreme or aliexpress. For your immediate needs, you'll need one that goes to 650 F, but, if you think you might ever have a wood fired oven, you should look into something that goes up to around 1300 F.
Your oven has no top heat source? That sort of sucks. Does it have a broiler drawer on the bottom? Does it have a convection feature? Some higher end ovens can be calibrated. Calibration can typically buy you as much as 35 F. higher. The instructions are in the manual. Have you looked into calibration?
Just so we're on the same page, you're using Caputo 00 pizzeria flour,, right? 65% water is a little high for Caputo. For your next bake, go with this:
1% diastatic malt
.3% instant yeast
Your yeast should be 3.2g per teaspoon. Your malt is 14g per tablespoon (3 teaspoons). You'll need to check the packaging of your salt to check it's density. If it's a fairly standard fine grain salt, it should be around 13g per tablespoon, but definitely check for greater precision. How are your excel skills? A spreadsheet can be enormously helpful for these kinds of conversions and for scaling a recipe up/down.
And don't forget... photos :) Right now, I'm just helping you reach a somewhat generic really good pizza realm. To hit Glascow more precisely, I'm going to need to see photos of the underside of the dough (right before stretching) and of the finished pie.
this milligram scale is only 20 EUR [link]
Have you tried this scale?
I'd get the gemini instead, it's an absolutely fantastic scale.
If you are in the US, you can have this in 2 days: [link]
I don't know how to help you when I don't know what is in the kit in the first place. You will needs dies for sure though, for an inexpensive scale you can use AWS gemini 20. I have that and like it, and here is a video review comparing it to expensive ones as well
I bought dumb... I needed a millegram scale that would measure down to the thousandth of a mg for meds, so the first one I got was the AWS gemini-20 and that's been the scale I use 99.9% of the time. Problem is, it only has a 20g capacity, so trades/donations were ridiculously complicated. However, it's an extremely accurate scale, comes with calibration weights and the case has a magnetic flap and protects the scale very well. It's a complete system.
Then, I got the AWS ACP-200 and that better for trades and donations, and I thought it would adequate. But no... Most of what I buy is 250g minimum (I told you I bought stupid). This one, however, requires that you buy a separate calibration weight. And they're not cheap.
Which brings me to the AWS-600-BLK with a capacity of 600g. Of course, I also buy kilos, but I haven't addressed that one yet :-) This one requires a calibration weight also, which really offsets the relatively inexpensive buy-in for the scale.
If I was smart, I would have purchased the 20g and a 1000g version and been done with it. One suggestion I would make is to NOT buy the calibration weights that they list as accessories for the scales and go with this guy instead. It's a 1000g calibration weight set that will give you just about any weight imaginable for only $18.
You might want an mg scale instead of a g scale for powders for accurate dosing.
I've used your scale before, it's not accurate at all under a gram.
American Weigh Scales GEMINI-20!
What I have:
Use this, OP. I have used it countless times without error for a multitude of substances. No complaints.
It really don't matter man,if you go with the powder(which like you said is cheaper) get the Gemeni 20 Scale,it's very accurate and affordable.
honestly, those all sound pretty shitty. I think you'd be better off with a fent analog--furylfentanyl is actually less potent than fentanyl, so not quite as dangerous. You'd still want to buy a good microgram scale (this one gets good recommendations [link]) and dose volumetrically ([link]).
Get a milligram scale from amazon 20 bucks....the Gemini is the scale that most of us DNT heads know and love. Only feckless fools eyeball hits....
Is it this one? [link]
This scale is the BOMB. .001g accuracy too.
American Weigh Scales GEMINI-20 Portable MilliGram Scale, 20 by 0.001 G [link]
With a milligram scale. People in the US often seem to use this one
Buy a scale. This is a good beginner option.
Theanine doesn't build tolerance, so you can take it daily without a reduction in efficacy. If you take too much at once, you'll probably get a headache. It does have a rather short half life (2.5 - 4.5 hours) so I usually take it two or three times per day depending on my mood.
This is a popular one around here. I have this one, and it's accurate without being expensive.
I use this one
[link] best thing you'll ever invest in.
why wouldnt you grab something like this?
Test kit ([link])
These are a must. Dose accordingly
Btw mdma tastes like death either cap the powder or mix it with juice and chug it.
Lol I bought this one off amazon for about $20. Not gonna lie I can't wait to use it
Great Dose Scale I use it for supplements too. Very accurate.
If you're really interested, check the beginner's guide to nootropics. Using L-theanine with your caffeine is extremely worth doing, and costs very little. If you want to get into this stuff, you also need a scale that weighs milligrams accurately, like this AWS scale for $35. Compared to the price you're paying for toxic sugar water, spending under $100 for a year's worth of vastly superior caffeine is an incredible deal, and I'll say it's changed my life, I'll never go back to coffee or energy drinks.
What kind of scale do you have? I strongly recommend using a digital scale like this one: [link]
Which one are you using? I've had this one for years and it does not produce accurate results below 15mg. It was hell measuring out 2c-e with.
This is what the majority uses. It's not accurate to the 1-5mg range, but it will get you to 15-20 mg. Your best bet is to measure a large amount and volumetrically dose.
This is the scale I use and have no issues measuring out 1/4 mg - [link]
it's $20. good luck my man
It's this one [link] accurate to +/-3 mg ime.
Addressing your first question, before buying any of these nootropics, I researched thoroughly and have not experienced any tolerance issues myself because I took necessary precautions in order to prevent that from happening. The only substances I have heard of causing the build of tolerance are pramiracetam and phenylpiracetam, the latter more so than any other substance. But this information, I have found, is anecdotal and these noots affect people differently than others. I have heard of cases of tolerance of phenyl can build in 3-4 straight days and pram in 1-2 weeks. I only take phenyl when I know I will have a challenging day ahead i.e on exam days. I cycle pram with other racetams, taking it 2 times per week, give or take. As for cycling, I would not take more than 2-3 racetams in a day, as it is not necessary. I usually take aniracetam daily, and cycle pram, oxi, and piracetam. Once again, you will have to experiment with these and find the cycling schedule that is most effective for you, or not cycle at all.
As for the capsule issue, it is definitely not necessary to use capsules. I used to use just powder and that has worked fine; I usually just dissolved my stack in water (I now just make my own capsules, for convenience). Powder is also much cheaper per dose. I have also heard of dissolving the powder sublingually, but I have not tried it. But if you buy the powder, you will most definitely have to buy a 0.001g scale, and it must be accurate, as many doses of noots will be in the 10 mg range. I recommend the Gemini-20 scale. Semax comes in the form of a nasal spray, don't know if you are comfortable with that, just a forewarning, if you decide to research. As I said before, I make my own capsules, and fit my whole stack into one pill, which I find convenient. There is a kit which I use on powdercity.com, if you are interested, which explains everything about capsule making.
Definitely a good choice to research everything before buying and definitely don't trust just one report, even data. You're welcome and once again, good luck.
This works well for both drugs and minerals
If you are spending $200 on a dispenser, you better not need a trickler. My $40 "dispensing" setup (scale, funnel, trickler) I'm sure is just as accurate as something costing 5 times as much, so I'm going to stick with it. I understand your desire to buy once cry once, but sometimes you can buy once and not cry at all. Sometimes there are equally effective ways to solve the same problem that don't involve spending big dollars on a specialized tool.
For the tumbler, I don't have a Harbor Freight - I have a made in USA Lortone 6 lb. that has tumbled many thousands of cases with no issues. It is essentially the same as the Harbor Freight model, but it was $80 on Craigslist. I just saw one in the pawn shop the other day for $40.
You mention you are on a college student budget, but you are pricing out things that a lot of guys with a lot more income wouldn't spend their money on. It's important to keep in mind that cheap and low cost are not the same thing.
Are you shooting a bolt action or semi auto? Do you already have a neck sizer?
Buy a test kit and test EVERYTHING you buy off the street. Mandelin or Marquis are the best for a variety of drugs.
If you're dealing with powders active in the mg range, buy a milligram scale and scale your doses. Eyeballing is stupid. The Gemini 20 is one of the most common, well reviewed accurate milligram scales. For $20-30.
Never use any MDxx more than once every month, preferably once every 3 months.
Take a minuscule amount of every new substance you try as an allergy test.
Start out with low doses and work your way up. You never know if you will be super sensitive to a certain drug.
Edit: One more thing: When thinking of combining two or more new drugs for the first time, use this chart to determine if it is safe
Things you may want to consider: [link]
$25 bucks for the scale I use. It is a mg scale and really accurate given the price.
so would the PRO version be better accuracy for weighing under 20mg?
Because there is quite a price difference, so there must be something better about it I'm thinking
Try encapsulating the Creatine...
You will need a suitable scale ....for micrograms....
Oh yeah I have no intention of using that for RCs. That's for creatine and other, heavier stuff. I was looking at this one based on this review, which shows it being very accurate compared to a multi-thousand dollar laboratory-grade Mettler scale.
Volumetric dosing or a .001 scale
anyone using drugs that can kill them should be using one of these to measure out their doses. It's $20 and is accurate down to the milligram.
Buy a scale. PLEASE BUY A SCALE.
this scale is close to perfect. As close as you can get to accuracy for this price. It'll be off at most by .01 which lets you accurately dose a point within 100-110 mg's. (A point being exactly 100mg's. So at most with this scale you'd be getting approximately 110mg's.) YMMV
I wouldn't use OJ as its acidic and will increase your stomach acidity and decrease absorbtion. Take one or two TUM's or Rolaids or whatever you happen to have available 30 minutes prior to use. This will decrease stomach acidity and increase absorption.
WHITE (this is important) Grapefruit juice the day before will also increase absorbtion as it inhibits the CYP3A4 enzyme and (without going into too much science) will increase bioavailability which means you get a little more bang for your buck. This should be done the day before so your stomach is not too acidic. Again, TUMS are great for preventing acidity. Whole black peppercorn will also help with bioavailability.
If you're too lazy to buy a scale, licking the tip of your finger and dipping in MDMA is USUALLY close to a point.
I SAY USUALLY BECAUSE THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO WAY TO KNOW WITHOUT GETTING A SCALE DUE TO THE FACT MDMA COMES IN SO MANY DIFFERENT CONSISTENCIES.
You could be taking anywhere from 2 points to a half point with this method. No way of knowing without using a scale at least once on this particular batch.
Gel caps are cheap also, and they are a much more efficient way of ingesting MDMA. A small pack will last you a lifetime.
Anywho if you have any more questions feel free to ask. I'll do my best to answer.
I'm a firm believer in supplements, and as such, swear by /u/misteryouaresodumb 's MDMA supplementation guide.
It is the most accurate guide to date that I have been able to find.
Do yourself a favor and pick up a cheap MG scale.
I got a milligram scale from aliexpress, same make as this listing. Cost about $20 shipped, but took a whole month to arrive (normal from China). It seems pretty on-par to me, I feel comfortable measuring out amounts <50mg.
I'm 90% sure this one on amazon is the same model after they slap a logo on.
Dude, what? Just get a gemini 20 scale and the capsule machine and 1000 size 0 caps.All of that would be around $50 and you can make 1000 caps. Get a better scale, don't cut your stuff. A lot of my friends open my 40mg caps, split it into 2 lines and snort one line into each nostril. That would be such worse to have to snort 80mg of powder.
I know it cuts your margin of error but it's really not worth the effort if you're going to weigh out each cap anyway.
I just put a piece of weighing paper on my Gemini and weigh out 40mg and put it on the cap that's already in my capsule machine. It took me about an hour and a half to do 120 40mg speed caps and 20 100mg MDMA caps.
EDIT: Links for the lazy:
Like I wasn't trying to be mean or anything, just wondering why you would weigh out all of that and subtract the amount needed. I would think it would be much more precise using weighing paper or something and weighing out each dose individually.
I love mine :)
Yeah, heck even one of these would seem sufficient for what I am assuming they need.
A link from my original link will take you here. Get a scale. Eyeballing doses makes it easy to convoke yourself to take more leading to black outs.
This guy is selling the big three off ebay which can be private
He has a reddit post here about it. If this doesnt work for you and you REALLY want to be stealthy, Just make your own Marquis reagent.
But other than that, I havent found any test kits in brick and mortar stores anywhere I live. I wish you the best of luck! :)
P.s. the mass of pills varies so much that it would be impossible for us to give you an accurate figure. your best bet is to get a scale. This one is cheap and really highly rated
This kind of scale is what you need.
Buy a damn scale..There is no way to know how much that is.
Gemini-20 - cheap, reliable, and reads 0.001 gram increments. I also have one of these for scooping.
They are cheap to, 20 bux on Amazon right now:
This scale is what I started with and it's pretty damn good for 20 bucks ... I highly recommend it. If you're only capping up a few grams a year then go with something like this, but you'll need to be careful using it ... I've have some fishy readings.
Now, if you want to spend a bit more this seems to be the most popular choice. It's a great scale but it can be finicky ... make sure you get a good one.
Also vouching for American Weigh. The Gemini milligram scale is decent. Make sure to keep it clean.
I don't own either, but I frequently see the American Weigh scales recommended. (Slightly misleadingly, they're made in China, but the quality is supposedly quite good.)
There are several of these on Amazon, but this one is probably the best if you're only weighing tea.
I use this one.
DMT doesn't stick to the dish it comes with, works great.
> hundred-plus dollar
Please make sure to weigh your lines and know what you are getting. Just because somebody says it is MDMA, doesn't mean it is. I don't care if you order it from overseas, test it. The same goes for LSD, make sure that you are getting LSD (if that is your intended buy) and not a research chem. Testing kits are expensive but consider how expensive your life is as well before using. Here is a good scale for lines. Here is a good testing kit for LSD Stay safe guys. I enjoy reading stories here and sometimes providing my own but please, stay safe.
I just ordered this scale today. I have heard pretty good things about it and needed a slightly more accurate one then i had.
Nope; wrong scale. Almost certain it's from this one.
A little cheap. But ive found it to be reliable. amazon always ships fast.
I'll probably just end up ordering this one.
Scale rules, been using it for awhile and it's cheap.
Works for most things. At 5-10mg it might be off by 1 or 2 mg, but it should get the job done. Don't forget to calibrate!
Great scale, very very accurate: [link]
You're either being disingenuous or underestimating the scales people have purchased, plenty around here have gotten a nicer scale than the average kitchen scale that have no issue with that sort of sensitivity. Maybe not the average user around here, but yeah..
For example, [link] I've seen this as a common recommendation around here.
With a tool that size ur probably fucking with some really potent shit, always weigh your shit and dont use anything that doesnt go down to miligrams or .001 grams some of that shit will fuck you up just looking at it. like this
Buy a Gemini-20 for $20. It's what most people here use and it works great.
You can find these types of scales at any headshop.
Here is a $25 milligram scale. I have it an it is supposedly accurate +/- 5mg.
If you HAVE to pick up something locally, look for something with calibration weights. Something like this:
The Gemini 20 is a great milligram scale and not expensive. You can get it for ~$23 at Amazon [link]
Take some MDMA with her, tested with a test kit to ensure proper drug, about 120mg (use a scale!), and she should open up about what she is having a problem with.
The long and short of it is depending how tightly packed the powder is in the scoop will determine how much that amount of powder will weigh. It could be anywhere in a wide range. Considering you are dosing phenylpiracetam which has a 100 mg recommended dose, you are going to have a really hard time determining how much you actually have in the scoop.
If you are impatient you can always build a homemade scale if you want to proceed with a relative amount of safety.
If you want to wait 3-4 days this scale is ok, it is $22.
Also that racetam isn't one you really wanna fuck around with.
Unless you are weighing out and selling large quantities of very dose-sensitive drugs (e.g. NBOMes), you don't need a $600 scale. For things like the 2c-series, MDMA, etc., something like this would be fine.
this works well enough. though weighing under 10 mg is sometimes challenging.
They can be pretty cheap
[link] - $20 on amazon
Comes with lid, case, and tweezers. With prime it comes in two days and free shipping. Only $23 this week.
This is what I use, bought for ~$25. Consistently accurate to 1mg, comes with a nice measuring dish, and some tweezers! I also recommend some measuring spoons to go with it.
You actually don't want nearly as much forskolin as is in one of those. I emptied all the pills into the bottle and measure out about 80mg at a time, which is around 3.5mg forskolin. I make gelcaps out of it, but you can also put it in a small piece of toilet paper, put it in your mouth, and chug some water. It's called 'parachuting'. The artichoke, tyrosine, and theanine are all pretty small.
