SARMs… the difference between liquid and powder measurements.
Properly Measure & Dosage SARMs –
There’s a right way and a wrong way to do everything. Especially when it involves small, light-weight, powdery substances such as SARMs (selective androgen receptor modulators).
Sloppy and inaccurate dosing methods can not only prove to be dangerous but they also run the risk of skewing research results considerably. That’s why there are a few things to consider before delving head-first into the world of SARMs…
First and foremost, don’t even think about beginning research without the following items:
· Milligram (mg) Scale – There are many low-quality ones out there that don’t respond well, but the one I listed below is what I always use and it gets the job done. Plus, it’s CHEAP so let’s try to save some money where possible.
· Gelatin Capsules – The ones listed below are what I use personally and are small enough to accommodate any researchers’ needs.
· Micro Scoop – Listed below is the recommended ‘powder to capsule’ transference device. These are nice because it’s more than small enough to fit inside the capsules themselves without running the risk of losing any precious research material on the outside. · 1cc/1ml Syringe – These are basic liquid-dosing syringes and these are needed for accurately measuring liquid-suspended research materials.
Measuring / Dosing For Powdered SARMs –
Okay great, so now there’s an mg scale, pack of capsules, and micro scooper (listed above) at full disposal… down to business. Turn on the scale BUT make sure it’s on a level surface beforehand, then ensure that it’s measuring in grams (0.000g). Next, acquire the base weight of each capsule before deciding to put anything into them… (read below)
– IMPORTANT: (The following example is done with the capsules listed above and on the right!) Each individual capsule and their total weight, despite appearing exactly the same, can actually differ by 2-10mg (0.002-0.010g). Which is why it’s very important that each capsule is weighed beforehand, as each capsule can tend to range anywhere from 92mg (0.092g) to 102mg (0.102g) in total weight, but that’s nearly a 10mg difference between some capsules- so keep this in mind!!
Tip: Doing one capsule at a time will keep you organized and frustration-free.
After acquiring the base weight of the capsule, proceed by using the micro scooper to transfer the powdered material (SARMs) into the capsule before remeasuring. To clarify, here is a clean, clear, and theoretical example… Let’s say the capsule, capped and empty, weighs 101mg (0.101g)… and the dosing parameters state that 40mg (0.040g) of material is ideal… therefore the capsule, capped, with material inside, should weigh 141mg (0.141g) at the end of everything.
Measuring / Dosing For Liquids –
Now, the liquid-dosing method is very simple and much easier/user-friendly because there’s no need for any additional accessories besides a basic 1cc/1ml syringe. Just keep in mind that liquid-suspended material will typically cost you a few more $ out of convenience, so that’s why some researchers opt for powders…
– IMPORTANT: Liquid-suspended products will typically come with built-in droppers but these do not have the required markings for accurate dosing, so you’ll still need a separate syringe to conduct successful research.
Most liquid material will have the potency listed on the front of the vial in ml/mg format. Just keep in mind that it can also be listed in ml/mcg and various other units of measure, but that all depends on the material being used.
As for understanding what ml/mg means…
Example：1000ml 10mg/ml GW501516 solution
1. Add 30ml solvent (Propylene Glycol or Grain Alcohol) to 10g GW501516 powder
2. Mix well, let it sit for 30 minutes
3. Add PEG 300(about 670ml) to 700ml
4. Mix well, keep heating and boiling until it gets clear
5. Add slowly 300ml PEG 300 to the hot liquid, slowly, very slowly
6. Stirring slowly as you add it
7. Once all the liquid is hot and clear, you have successfully suspended the SARMs
