1 gram of kratom powder equals how many grams of kratom leaf?

SWIM accidently ordered an ounce of leaf instead of powder. SWIM has never had leaf before and is wondering how much to take. He usually takes about 6 to 7 grams of powder. He is guessing he needs to take more leaf to get similar effects.

SWIM thanks you for your help.

Re: 1 gram of powder = how many grams of leaf?

1 gram leaf=1 gram powder, its just the volume that changes. Try eating the reg dose weight and see how it feels

Oh dear, looks like someone skipped Maths at school

A gram of leaf is the same as a gram of powder, its all 'a gram'

There is no reason why Swiy should have to take more or less. Powder is just ground leaf, its the same thing.

A gram of Gold weighs the same as a gram of feathers.

If Swiy is used to using the toss & wash method with their powder they might want to grind the leaf as trying to swallow ground leaf matter could irritate Swiys throat.
This can be done in a coffee grinder or by placing the leaves into a sieve an rubbing it through into a bowl to powder it.

Re: 1 gram of kratom powder equals how many grams of kratom leaf?

Sorry, SWIM asked it wrong. Like mentioned above SWIM is speaking of volume. SWIM doesn't have a scale, he measures the amount to take using a tablespoon. How much leaf would SWIM need to take if he usually takes a tablespoon of powder.

Its very hard to call it exactly, although a gram of leaf or powder is not going to do much anyway.
Swim would suggest that Swiy grinds up the leaf into a powder, this can be done with a coffee grinder but if Swiy does not have access to one then another method Swim uses is to put the Kratom leaf into a Sieve, crush it up and rub it through the mesh into a bowl below. This will leave Swiy with a pretty fine powder.

Swim would make a guess that a tablespoon of leaf would be about the same weight as a tea spoon of powder but its only a rough estimate.

Swim had a quick look around and came across this chart, he does not know how exact it is...

Re: 1 gram of kratom powder equals how many grams of kratom leaf?

If the powder has been 'de-stalked' then it will have a higher alkoloid concentration as opposed to the leaf itself, however the difference will be negligable

so yeh, gram for gram they will be pretty much equal

Re: 1 gram of kratom powder equals how many grams of kratom leaf?

This looks like yet another one of those unanswerable "how do I measure X without a scale" type questions. Ianzombie's advice is the best. Leaf will not have the same density per equal volume as powder, so a teaspoon (which is a measure of volume) is not going to work. The only other option here, besides getting a scale, is to crush the leaf to a similar consistency as the powder. Basically making the two equivalent in terms of density per volume.

But then you're saying that 1 gram of powder = 1 gram of powder, which should be pretty obvious. Without a scale, there is no way to say how much powder equals how much leaf.

Re: 1 gram of kratom powder equals how many grams of kratom leaf?

Real quick, make sure to de-stem the leaves. In the shiva cat's experience one gram of leaf does not equal one gram of powder because kratom leaves have a lot of stems, and they are very woody/sharp. Consuming them causes serious gastrointestinal pain, at least in shiva kitty.

Edit: make sure to remove the stems by hand before grinding the leaves up.

The difference between 1 gram of powder and 1 gram of leaf is 1 food chopper.

Re: 1 gram of kratom powder equals how many grams of kratom leaf?

SWIM gets around 60 to 85% powder weight from his leaves. Depends a bit on the harvest and age of the leaves. Stems and veins are probably around 15% average weight of total leaf weight.

SWIM takes out rotten leaf parts and brown spots, so his powder has a nice green color. This causes some weight loss as well.

SWIM loses also a percentage during grinding, partly due to the grinding dust and extra loss of moisture.

Fluffiness of powder and the size of SWIY spoon will differ all the time, so make sure SWiyou weight your doses of Kratom properly.

Re: 1 gram of kratom powder equals how many grams of kratom leaf?

A gram of powder = gram of leaf. It's like taking a dollar bill, then weigh it. Shred it up, and it's still the same weight.

SWIM doesn't know if he is allowed to post brands of scales he recommends so he will just give a description. He recommends a scale that is disguised as a CD case, or a scale who's display projects out the side using a spring mechanism. They are cheap and can easily be found on an auction site.

These are used for jewelry, of course.

Re: 1 gram of kratom powder equals how many grams of kratom leaf?

If swiy knows how many grams of powder it takes to launch his rocket, it should be easy to figure out.
How many grams of leaf did he get? Measure the volume, reduce the measurement to it's lowest i.e, cups to teaspoons and simply do the math.

If swiy needs an example, swim will break it down for him. He just needs to know launch weight, weight on hand and it's volume.
