    Hello all - I've recently had a friend to make pure Salvinorin A powderedextract from a room temperature IPA method. The problem is, is that we have no efficient scale to weigh out such small amounts of extracts.We do not have the money to buy such a scale at this time. Are there any cheap* ways of measuring salvia extract to the nearest microgram? I've seen the scales (Diagem) that most people use to measure such amounts, but we really don't have the extra ~$150 to spend on one. If anyone has any advice or suggestions, please reply!
    If anyone uses the pure salvinorin A powder, about how much do you use for a good, say, 5x-10x trip? Please refrence your dose to an object or size it!
    (We are aware of the great intensity that pure Salvinorin A extract has in the powdered form and we are also aware that it may cost us some money to obtain an efficient scale. ALL SUGGESTIONS ARE WELCOME!) Thanks!

    scyrusurcys: In a simple answer, no. You need a scale to weigh any amount. It may be one single milliigram or one gram. But you still need a scale to do it.





    Alfa: The first poster in the link you gave is dead wrong when assuming that the amounts sold by the vendors arecorrect. Some vendors are known to have shipped 5-MeO-AMT when AMT was ordered. Others have sent1.2 grams when 1 gram was ordered. Every "researcher" need to get off his cheap ass and buy a fucking scale.
