Ive been thinking about building some kinda pill press for powdered shrooms. I was reading that someone could put a gram in a 00 gel cap, so I bet I could press 2 grams in a downable pill.
What should I use as a binder? Elmers glue?

as i remember 00 gelcaps hold .8 of a gram. you dont use glue you just fit the caps together. go buy an asprin in a gelcap and take it apart and youll see how to do it.

00 jell caps will not hold a gram of ground shrooms ,this is 00 jell cap jellcap-1
and i find that .05 fits in them just packing the big end of the jell cap . you may get .8 but would be a lot of hassle imo .

there has been some discussion of this and i have come to some conclusions. if you have a cap m quik and you load the top sides full and packed hard and the same with the bottom ends 'oo's will get you .8 grams. it's actually not any harder and they go together fine.

I packed some shrooms in gel caps once and it didnt really seem to get me off

but i would think you would just keep it at .05 to keep things straight. that is if you care on how much you are takeing that is . and as for the binding agent . you may want to try some dextrose with gluecose dex-1 seems to work for other things when put in a press to make a nother big block . but then again i am useing a 10 ton press . and bye the way to all merry x-mas and may all of you have a happy new year .

Double-00 capsules actually hold approx one half-gram of dried P. cyanescens made into a powder.

This would make for a large pill.

Back in 1968, Owlsley created a one gram tablet of MDA. This was a giant pill which was 8 doses and hard to measure without a scale.

People want to see the mushrooms.

I personally bought twenty capsules back in 1974 at the Eugene, Oregon Country Fair. They were grocery store shrooms, dried out and capsuled. IT was a rotten burn. Many people burn people at concerts with these phony capsules so hopefully you are doing these capsules for your own personal use.

In the early 1970's I too made capsules out of several ounces for parties and concerts. The people I gave these shroom capsules to said that they would prefer to see an actual mushroom. Not a capsule. They also said the shrooms came on very fast, similar to that of tea. They preferred the slow come-on of consuming the actual mushrooms and knowing that they were really shrooms.

So I did not do that one again.

Also the high is fast in a capsule. The Mazatecs take up to 45 minutes or so to consume a dosage. whether it is one large P. Caerulescens or ten to twnety P. mexicnanas.

One dried ounce of P. cyanescens equals 40-50 capsules depending on how high you want to get a person. one to two capsules are equal to a Mazatec Indian ceremony.
