The substance Mitragyna Speciosa, more commonly known as kratom, is a natural opioid that has been used in Eastern medicine for centuries to alleviate pain, lift the user’s mood, and boost overall productivity. It comes from a leafy plant that is native to southeast Asia and is a member of the coffee family. While its many benefits can be experienced by chewing raw kratom leaves, most users opt to consume the substance in powdered form.
How should I Consume Kratom Powder?
If you’re new to taking kratom, the best way to ensure you ingest the proper dose while disguising the distinct and not always appealing taste is to mix the powder into a glass of juice. Note that the fruit juice only masks the taste of the kratom to a certain degree, so you probably want to drink it quickly.
Another popular method for ingesting kratom powder is by sprinkling it onto a cup of flavored yogurt or mixing it into a protein shake. As with juice, these items can partially disguise the taste of the powder, though the remaining taste may linger in your mouth longer than is desirable, and you may want to follow it with a glass of water. Kratom users who consume it for a quick boost of energy before exercise sometimes find that taking it with a source of calories–particularly dairy–can disrupt the digestive process and lead to a delay in effect.
Most importantly you have to take legit and pure kratom for better effects. Many kratom vendors are selling fresh and pure kratom. However, finding the trusted kratom vendor online is a little bit tricky. As you have to consider its reviews, reputation, certification, kratom prices, lab-tested products and variety of strains. So choosing the right stain for your body with knowing its effects play a vital role in getting the long term and smooth effects.
Should you find that you do not need to mask the taste of kratom with other flavors, you can drink it as a brewed beverage not dissimilar to tea. Kratom tea is remarkably easy to prepare: simply put the desired concentration of powder into a saucepan, and boil for roughly 30 minutes, after which point you should strain out the remaining residue, and drink the infused brew. If you prefer a chilled beverage, you’re most welcome to store it in a fridge or freezer (set a timer so you don’t forget about it!) and enjoy a kratom iced tea later on.
What is the “Toss and Wash” Method?
For experienced kratom users who want to ingest the powder as quickly as possible and minimize the time spent tasting it, there is the “toss and wash” method. As the name suggests, this involves tossing a measured quantity of the powder into your mouth and washing it down with a mouthful of water or other beverage.
To avoid choking on the fine, dry powder, many users opt to drink a small mouthful of water and hold it in the back of their throat as if planning to gargle and add the kratom powder to that reserve before swallowing the mixture in full. This method can be problematic for users with strong gag reflexes and should be eased slowly and carefully.
We hope that your new understanding of the basic ways to ingest kratom powder will help you decide which method works best for you. Good luck!
