YES THE PAPER IS EDIBLE AND ITS NOT NORMALLY THE PAPER THAT CAUSE PEOPLE TO OD. IT THE FACT THAT PRECISE MEASUREMENT CANT BE MADE WITH THE PAPER AND HENCE DOSING ISNT THAT EASY. Sometimes depending how the paper was dried can have a huge diference on the effectiveness of each dose. For instance if the paper is hang dried the lower edges tend to be much stronger then the higher parts of the paper since gravity pulls the liquid down and pulls the compound with it. If it is flat dried the inside of the paper is the stronger of the doses because the edges have a tendency to curl up or down because the paper will dry from outside edge in the and contraction takes place pulling the product in towards the center, almost like a puddle pooling in the center. you cant normally force the paper flat because the liquid will run off the paper only leaving a small amount of product remaining and it will leave you with extremly bogus weak ****. The best way is normally the whole pad of about 25 sheets flat dried (remember the sheets are very small, about the size of post it notes are standard). Thats enough of your lesson for today children.
till next time.
