Or spinach, do they mean cooked or uncooked? Packed or loose?

the recipe usually says if it needs to be precooked or not and I always use a packed cup because things like kale and spinach cook down so much

Depends on the recipe.  Most will give you some kind of idea of what they are looking for.  I would always measure fresh, packed especially if cooking it as it wilts down so much.

Raw unless otherwise specified.  And when raw, I pack it.

I agree with this. I need to start cooking with kale. Its so cheap. I love my spinach though!

I'd do uncooked, have you tried juicing kale, 1 cup raw kale and 3 cups grapes is delicious!! http://www.rawjuicecleanserecipes.com/kale-juice-cleanse-recipes/
