Re: how many cups of poppy's equal 1 pound ?

One really needs a scale for this. Since weight is variable, no one can accurately answer that question.

What SWIY could do is make a simple, albeit crude, fulcrum/balance scale and weigh the poppies using something that is a fixed weight on one side(like a pound of butter or 2 rolls of quarters minus paper) and poppies on the other until the weight balances out. Then it'd be close to equal assuming the scale was set as precisely as possible(center balance, even arms).

1 cup = 5 oz
SWIM just measured it to see.

Yes, but one must take into account the fact that poppy seeds (along with most other organic substances) will vary greatly in weight from one batch to the next, depending on fluid content, density etc. So IamN2's 1 cup = 5 oz is all very well, but this is not a constant measure by any means.

A US cup (237 millilitres) is a unit of measurement for volume, not for weight. The only reliable way of measuring weight is with the aid of weighing scales. They're really not in the least bit expensive, just go to a high street kitchenware/ cookery shop, and depending on how much (or little) you wish to spend buy either a very basic old fashioned set or some more expensive digital ones.

Considering your ability to calculate safe dosages relies in part on accurate measurement of weight, in my opinion there is no excuse for not getting hold of some scales.

Re: how many cups of poppy seeds equal 1 pound ?

With ALL due respect to the moderator, SWIM respects the point made and always weighs SWIM's dosages. But unless one can establish the amount of active ingrediants in the plant material someone wishes to consume, measurment by any means, weight or volume of plant material, is at best guess work.
Case in point, SWIM currently has pods from 2 venders. SWIM consumes a dosage of 6 grams from vendor A and all is good. Swim consumes a dosage of 20 grams from vendor B for an equal effect. If SWIM is basing dosage on vendor B and trys vendor A pods at 20 grams, there is trouble, thus the warning to ALWAYS TRY ANY NEW BATCH OF PODS WITH CAUTION!!!. But my point is made.
If the OP measures out X oz of seed to make 1 cup of tea, because the last batch of seed SWIY used that was a good doeage, but the seeds from the last batch were from SWIM's vender B and these seeds are from vendor A, having a scale (or cup) will not make any differance because the OP does not know that these seeds have 3.5 x more active ingrediants.
I guess I'm really just trying to say, BE CAREFUL, however you measure. The amount of active ingrediants of plant material is always an unknown.
Be safe!

Very true, potency/ amount of active ingredient in any plant material will vary, and the same weight will not necessarily equate to the same strength or effect.

However, adding another uncertainty into the mix (such as vague ideas of volume/ weight) can only makes things even more ambiguous. Be as precise with measurements as possible - granted, this will not guarantee the same amount of active ingredient every time, but it's certainly better than not knowing the starting product weight at all.
