Put it between two pieces of parchment paper and crush it gently with the back of a spoon. As to how much, Roll Safe recommends a conservative dosage of 1.5mg/kg.
You need a 0.001g scale to weigh it. I recommend this one: [link]
I bought a ~~drug~~, ahem, "gem" scale on Amazon and I weigh out pure nitrates and nitrites as I need them, along with ascorbates.
I figured a) I'd have better control, and b) I have no idea if the curing salts I can get are accurately composed.
Works pretty well if you're willing to basically count grains of nitrite. My go-to is 120 ppm, so a 5lb piece of meat is 272mg nitrite. Mix it into the salt I've weighed out and I'm good.
This is the one I've got, but I'm not entirely happy with it:
Not sure if I'm allowed to post links here but I use this scale and am happy with it. Reads to 0.001 mg which is important to me because I take between 0.05 to 0.08 mg doses. [link]
I have 3 different scales measuring 0.001, I wheigh each dose on all three to get to the most accurate dosage. It’s striking how accurate some €20 scales can get, and stay.
This model wears many different “brands” and sells for anywhere inbetween €15 and €75. In my expirience this device is very accurate, matching up to more expensive ones I had/have. this scale
It's just over 20 bucks, had it for quite a long time now, and it's pretty great. I would ditch the janky pan it comes with for a real one. Two issues:
if the battery starts to go, it starts behaving oddly, but that's when you replace the battery. mine's on battery 3.
turn off your fan. it's so sensitive that my ceiling fan makes it jump up and down like mad, even on its lowest setting.
Try amazon or online, or look through a lot if smoke shops. Get one that looks exactly like this:

I just recently started getting into loading for my 6.5 Creedmoor, not doing competitions just yet but here's what I started with a bit ago:
Things I've picked up since and wish I had from the start:
The only thing I wished I had done different out of the above was the scale. That scale or the one I got at least is pure garbage. I have another scale that I tested it against and not only was it off but it would constantly fluctuate up and down without any interference (no drafts, no cell phones/electronics nearby). I've since returned it and should of just known better then to buy something that cheap.
Lastly, if you are reloading Small Rifle Primer holes then the Universal Decapping Die Pin wont work. The Redding Type S has a small decapping pin, but it broke after about 10 uses and Redding is sending a replacement. Ive since filed down one of the other pins I had as backup and use that for now. It also means my Lee Trimming Tool doesn't work in the Small Rifle Primer hole either, but I measure the cases and am looking for a replacement once they get long or I will file down that piece as well.
If I were you I would buy a 0.001 milligram scale or higher for measuring substances such as Phenibut that are known to possess a dose response curve. Another thing that may have adversely affected your experience is dosing the amph too soon. You should be feeling the effects of the Phenibut before dosing the amph in order to achieve the desired effect!
I'd lower the dosage further. It has a half-life of 2 days, so 7 days would be too long.
Buy yourself a cheap 0.001 or 0.01mg scale (like this), buy a pill crusher, and dose that way. Much more accurate and consistent dosing.
I'd try going down to 0.125mg, but definitely avoid your suggestion of every 7 days.
I bought a jeweler's scale. Amazon Canada link is here, but you'll find similar ones on US Amazon. Also, you can get better quality, this one only goes down to 0.02 grains (two hundredth of a grain / one thousandth of a gram).
These are really accurate to 0.001g and come with a calibration weight and mini tongs. (Batteries included).

Despite what the other redditor said...I've dosed things such as moxy and 4-acodmt on numerous occasions within the range that I originally said with this particular scale no problem. Use at your own risk but this is what I use
This is the one I use.. Just tare off a little cup and T&W with that.. Keep in mind it maxes at 20 grams and width of the actual scale part is pretty small..
Those scales are nowhere near accurate enough to be measuring stuff like 4-AcO-DMT. Using those scales for something this potent, would pretty much be like eye-balling it.
You need some 0.001 scales like this - [link]
Every time. its one of these. I just place a larger cup on it to load the powder into, then pour it into the case. So each time the scale should return to zero once I replace the cup.
Those spoons work for measuring, but keep in mind that density varies based on a chemical, so while they will measure around or close to 10mg; it will not be exactly 10mg.
If you use a measuring spoon make sure the substance sits level in the spoon and to scrape any extra off the top for accurate measuring.
Also it's easy to have many powders fall out of those spoons (I remember because I used to use them for Synephrine HCl from powder city)
Here is a link to a $20 milligram scale if you want exact dosing though: [link]
If you get the scale make sure to calibrate it first using the weights to make sure it's accurate.
Suspensions imo are alot less of a time hassle for LGD because the dosing is much more convenient, as you need 10mg/mL.
For suspending LGD all you really need to do is buy a 1g packet of it, fill a 120ml bottle with 100ml of propylene glycol and then mix the entire packet into it, cap it and shake.
I might opt for the capsule method with more complex dosages or high density dosages of a substance.
Either way you'll be good though.
Look no further than this scale! It's one of the cheapest 0.001 scales you will come across, but that certainly doesn't reflect in its quality. Have had mine for ages and it works an absolute treat. It's the only one I ever see people recommend.
Best scale for most exact measurements that doesn't cost hundreds of dollars is the Gemini 20 .001g
Do you think this one would be okay? It measures to the mg, which is good enough for our purposes.
You can buy a milligram scale for like $24 on Amazon. Don't put off buying one, just get it; if you're going to take MDMA in the future you'll definitely use it.
I mean, yes you should always be careful, but if you're not a fucking moron, and have 25 bucks, you can get a gemini mg scale for very cheap on amazon.
Also: powder city gives you a nice tiny scoopula to help handling tiny amounts of powder when you order caffeine through them.
I recommend this one more. The weigh trey is bigger which makes measurement easier. I've had both, this is worth the extra 3 bucks (They're almost identical otherwise)
In that case, just ask them what the recipe is. If they're on Reddit - just link em to the thread?
Also, you won't find a decent scale at a reasonable price at brick and mortar stores. Amazon is definitely the way to go for this purchase:
This is the one I have, and I'd wager it's the same scale that many if not most on this subreddit use as well
Another question.. I bought this scale and its on my way for the 26'th cant wait..
just wanted to make sure it was fine.. even tho it got recommended by some other forum thought i would ask here too :)
I would use a milligram scale. Not trying to scare you, but yohimbine should be measured accurately and dosed properly. It's not DNP, but can still make you feel like shit all day if you're not careful. A milligram scale can be found for around $20-25 on amazon. I recommend this one.
The one drawback to buying the ingredients in bulk is the flavor like you mentioned. As someone already posted here, the crystal light packets are pretty good for this. You don't even need to use 1/2 the packet to mask the taste of everything. There are also probably cheaper water flavorings on amazon too I'm sure. Out of the ingredients you listed only the citrulline malate is the only one that I actually taste (sourness) but it doesn't bother me too much.
They pack it with moisture added. I think the standard is like 20% moisture...or some shit like that. So you don't have to worry about the explosive aspect. All the of reactions are hyped up. Yes it stains like hell, but I have weighed it out on the open on my desk and it's not aerosol...it's manageable.
Then when you get it, just portion off a few grams and dry it overnight on your window sill in a little cardboard box.
Then proceed to weigh it with a [link]
start hunting for small rifle primers now, they are unobtanium unless you want to pay 4x markup on gunbroker
rcbs makes a a die specifically for AR-15 ammo you want that one
i forgot to add you will need case lube as well as a primer pocket cleaner
HF dual drum tumbler
tumbling media, buy over FB messenger
1lb media, 1lb brass, 1lb water, dont over load
1/16 tsp. citric acid (canning section of store, health food store, magnesium supplements sometimes)
10 drops dawn dish liquid
tumble 45min, rinse well, RINSE WELL, shake/blow dry
dry very well, sit in sun for a few hours or bake at 200 degrees 3 hours
spray cases on pad and roll to cover the entire exterior
if just using liquid lube just wipe on enough to give it a film
run through resize/decap die
use appropriate shell holder (.223/5.56 uses #10)
follow setup instructions that come with the die
maybe a little lube on expander ball of die
smooth up/down on press, if it starts sticking use more lube on cases
clean primer pocket
get the ash out, if you have a decap only die you can pop the primer out before you tumble it
remove crimp if needed (i got the swage die, but you can use the cutter in a drill to save a few bucks)
a lot of 5.56 is crimped primer which will keep you from putting a new one in
chuck this in a drill
but i use this instead
prep case mouth
one size fits all
partner press already is the tool for this, idk about the rock chucker
charge with powder
i got this scale, seems to be a good budget, calibrate often
DO NOT GET THE RCBS 22-45 cal funnel it DOES NOT work for 22 caliber
seat bullet (adjust seating depth and crimp to taste)
Yes, 50x0.001 means it will weigh a maximum of 50 g at increments of 0.001 g. (0.001 g = 1 mg) I have this one, and it works fine:
But it only goes up to 20 g. If you need to weigh more than 20 g at a time, you should be able to find something similar.
The price on the Genimi-20 has been jacked by over 20 dollars (costs almost 50.00 now). The Smart Weigh knockoff is only 24.00 and it has better ratings on Amazon.
Milligram scale ($20) from Amazon:
It's best to use theses scales without zeroing them: turn the scale on, then put the measuring bowl on so it reads a little weight, then add your substance until the scale reads however many milligrams you want more than the measuring bowl weight. If, instead, you start it at zero with the Tare button, it will tend to "hunt" toward zero and be inaccurate for small amounts.
Or, spend $60 for the same thing at a head shop once they reopen :-)
I recommend if you are starting microdosing, get yourself a digital jewerly scale. I use this one (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00ESHDGOI/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) and then get yourself some capsules, I use these (https://www.amazon.com/Gelatin-Capsules-Kosher-Certified-Express/dp/B01BI7Z364/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=capsules&qid=1602855847&sr=8-2-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUE2U0ZVUTY2Vk0zV1cmZW5jcnlwdGVkSWQ9QTEwMTQxOTAzOEFDTFFMWjk0NUI2JmVuY3J5cHRlZEFkSWQ9QTEwMzkwNzk0SFpXNTZYSjhLOUEmd2lkZ2V0TmFtZT1zcF9hdGYmYWN0aW9uPWNsaWNrUmVkaXJlY3QmZG9Ob3RMb2dDbGljaz10cnVl).
So you can open the capsules you have, put it all into a glass jar or sandwich bag. And then just weigh out 0.1g on your dosing days on your scale and then put it into your capsule to take. <3
Second getting the mushrooms. Get yourself this scale or one like it: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00ESHDGOI/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I use a mortal and pestle to crush it into a powder, but you can use a coffee grinder (https://www.amazon.com/Grinder-LINKChef-Stainless-Activated-CG-8420/dp/B082WTPXVW/ref=sr_1_19?_encoding=UTF8&c=ts&dchild=1&keywords=Coffee+Grinders&qid=1602855761&s=kitchen&sr=1-19&ts_id=289750) to get it into a powder. And then I put the amount on a scale to get 0.144g and then put it into one of these capsules (https://www.amazon.com/Gelatin-Capsules-Kosher-Certified-Express/dp/B01BI7Z364/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=capsules&qid=1602855847&sr=8-2-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUE2U0ZVUTY2Vk0zV1cmZW5jcnlwdGVkSWQ9QTEwMTQxOTAzOEFDTFFMWjk0NUI2JmVuY3J5cHRlZEFkSWQ9QTEwMzkwNzk0SFpXNTZYSjhLOUEmd2lkZ2V0TmFtZT1zcF9hdGYmYWN0aW9uPWNsaWNrUmVkaXJlY3QmZG9Ob3RMb2dDbGljaz10cnVl).
Hey I went back to my order history and clicked that link instead. 26.99
Smart Weigh GEM20 High Precision Digital Milligram Scale 20 x 0.001g
this one has served me and many others on these subs well
I like this scale: [link]
you need a milligram scale that goes to .001, theyre typically used for jewerly etc. [link]
The newer ones with the flat plate work better than the older ones. The weight doesn’t fluctuate as much over time and it’s better with uneven surfaces.
New type: [link]
I just went with a cheap Gemini-20. Works like a charm.
You sound like you have a sensible approach. In terms of the substance itself, I'd say your three most important bits of guidance should be:
1) Don't take it so often. Repeated use can really screw up your brain chemistry. While some might consider the literal three-month rule excessive (for example, I believe the MAPS clinical trial protocols call for 120 mg total every 2 weeks, but of course there's a supervising psychologist in that mix), daily or even weekly use is unambiguously unsafe. Plus, yeah, it makes you feel like crap... sometimes for months in a row, and more won't make you feel much better, except briefly.
2) Don't take so much. 100 mg should be enough for a great roll for an average-size 16-year old girl. Unlike a lot of substances, more is not better, nor longer lasting, just increasingly more toxic. Crystal/powder is great since you can easily use a scale, but get that scale! $20 from Amazon gets you a good one:
3) Be sure of what you're taking. Get a test kit from dancesafe.org or someplace like that. Powder is really easy to test: just takes a piece the size of a pinhead.
I hope any underlying issues are easy to deal with. Here's hoping it's just boredom! Another good source of guidance is https://rollsafe.org/
These scales: [link]
I just ordered this one. It seems quite a few users in /r/drugs use it so I figure it must be pretty decent lol. Comes with 2 calibrating weights as well which is nice.
mine is accurate to around 5mg. lab scales cost hundreds to thousands
is this it? [link]
Just these cheap ones from amazon mate, saw someone else on here recommend them, haven't failed me yet.
Work ace at tiny scales too, measuring 2CB worked a charm
Scales were just these cheap ones from amazon mate, someone here recommended them.
I know the feeling man, hate weekdays.
[link] £22 for these and they've lasted me for years. You don't need to spend a lot of money for a decent set of 0.001 scales.
You'll want these [link]
25mg for a heavy mushroom trip, 50mg for space. Oral is best, you can sniff aswell but it'll be short lived, and also the drip WILL make you sick.
Have had mine for years!
I just boght this scale: [link]
But what is "PG", and why do I need it and the graduated cylinder, if I have the mg scale?
I appreciate your breakdown of info - helping a noob stay safe :)
Which scale exactly? I got this one and the calibration doesn't work:
> At the very least have a scale that weighs down to 0.001g (i.e. GEM20)
Thanks. will take your advise on that.
Thing is, there are two scales with an uncanny resemblance, one is:
Smart Weigh GEM20
American Weigh GEMINI-20
Do you mean the American Weigh one?
How does this compare to [link]
If its not calibrating, its time to chuck it. This scale isn't sensitive enough for a lot of the fun RCs anyway. Get the Gem20.
get one of these and realize even a scale like this is possibly off by as much as 2-5mg, volumetric dosing might be your best answer.
you should really have a thousandths of a gram scale for mdma.
something like this.
Buy a fucking $20 scale from amazon.. 2 day shipping with prime..
do not buy an electronic "reloading" scale with "0.01 gram" precision for over $20, it's a ripoff
here's a good cheap scale
any other "0.005 gram" (or less) scale with decent reviews would be fine
Forget .01g, there's .001g precision scales for $23 at your local Amazon
