Unfortunately, eating anything will disable the Kratom's bioavailability.
Kratom is best taken on an empty stomach. Then pig out 4 hours later, after most of the effects are diminished. It will be as if you are having a feast!
The best eats I have ever had were on Kratom. Oh my goodness, I remember when I took a bunch of Kratom and then got all my favorite foods from the store and ate them. The awesomeness of it was overwhelming!
Kratom, in it's own way, is just as good at making food ridiculously amazing as pot is. At least in MY opinion.
Question #2. Yup. It does. It also has a ceiling effect in the fact that one will throw up at high doses.
Question #3. Indeed I do! I take a particular extract called "Liquid Kratom". It comes in 1oz vials, and feels closer to morphine than anything else. Google "liquid kratom 1oz vials", if you are interested in procuring it. RIDICULOUSLY powerful.
Question #4. For sure! DXM helps immensely. No need to go crazy. 40mg a day is far more than enough.
Question #5. It prevents it, for me.
Question #6. Toss 'n wash is best, IMO. The less in your stomach the better.
Question #7. The body seems to be the most efficient, by far. If you wanted, you could try making tea and eating the leftovers too. Which would be disgusting. Lol.
Question #8. I hate the other strains too. Bali all the way. However, by FAR the most potent and by FAR the most euphoric was the "liquid kratom" I was talking about above.
BOOM. Answers are answered.
Have any others? I consider myself an expert in all things Kratom.
I have a question; if I did a simmer for like 10 min using ground up kratom, what kind of yield should i expect? i've done this and filtered the sludge and used the resulting liquid (like brown water) to make coffee. It seemed to work at 12 grams but i'm not sure if a higher dose is needed because i'm not getting many alkaloids with just heating (i've read using the freezer helps?). I don't care how many grams I use as it's just sitting around, just wondering if i would be killing more alkaloids or releasing more?
I've been using kratom since monday to manage the chronic phase of my ODT withdrawal. By the evening,when the aches and shivers are coming back a bit 8-10 gr of bali leaf has really hit the spot! Is there an asian tradition of using kratom in substitution opiate therapy? It seems a bit of a magic plant to me!
so I'm kind of interested in getting some kratom to help get off buprenorphine, or to at least help me skip days between dosages. I'm currently taking .5 mg 2x a day sublingually.
I want to use the kratom because I just can't deal with the anxiety and depression that I get when I attempt to skip a dose, I need something to keep me going. In my case, with my current tolerance, what would be the lowest amount of Kratom that could still help me with withdrawal? I know this all very's on person to person, but if I could just get an estimation it would be very helpful.
Also, If I did use kratom to stop taking buprenorphine, would my tolerance for buprenorphine actually go down, or is the kratom strong enough that it would basically just be like taking an equivalent dosage or more? It would fucking suck to think that I'm getting off of one drug and then come down with a worse habit.
any advice would be awesome, thanks.
^Self proclaimed Kratom expert is self proclaimed. Teach us your ways, oh Kratom guru
I've been sampling this stuff for the past month, and so far I have nothing bad to say about it. Except maybe that I wasn't too impressed with the "8x" resin. Or at least the way it is being marketed. That shit is weak, plain and simple. At least the stuff I got was. Maybe there is a way to make it better, but I will steer clear of it from now on unless it's free.
^Stay away from extracts. Overpriced, and the high from a good extract is too much like real opiates not to be addictive. At least with plain leaf, you're self limited: you can't eat more than 10-12g of plain leaf without feeling like shit, so you can't chase the high like you can with opiates/extracts.
Can someone give me advice on how much "Kratom 15x Capsules" it would take to equal the same dose of 5-6g of Maeng Da? <--I'm sure that stuff is just another marketing gimmick, but that's what I've been using the most of and had good results. The 15x is new to me.
^it would depend on the strength of the 15x, it can vary. 5-6g of good md can give me a good buzz so you'd think half a gram of extract should do it but when i've done this i've either gotten sick (too much) or felt nothing.
10-4, thanks. I'll start with half a gram and see how it goes.
The lemon juice is most certainly worth it IMO, if the taste is too much use less, you really only need to slightly cloud the water with it. Sweeten to taste with honey & sugar or light corn syrup and sugar to cut out the undesirable flavor of the lemon if need be.
Hi folks, I'm new to the site but I wanted to share an experience report that I wrote about Kratom. The experience actually is from a couple of weeks ago and I have another one to post since then, but I don't want to double post so I will wait a bit to post that one.
Kratom 20x extract powder experience report.
I met someone in a park near my house, he told me about a friend of his, his friend has been a lifelong daily pot smoker, once or twice a week drinker and once a week partier with things like cocaine and RCs. The guy also takes Hydrocodone whenever he can get it. Usually twice a week he will be able to get and take 30mg of Hydrocodone, so he probably has a bit of a tolerance to opiates.

20X extract powder. The guy hasn't eaten in about 4 hours. He did have a bit of smoke about a half hour ago but it would be unusual for him to be able to say otherwise at any time during his typical day.
0:00- 50mg allergy test. Mixed with about 1oz of water and drank. Even that tiny bit had a bad taste, as he had read it would have but he said it wasn't horrible or anything. The taste has tinges of 'green tea' flavor. He thinks it might even taste good as a tea with sugar or honey.
0:20- Toss and washed a 1/2 gram. The 20X extract that he got was advertised as 1 gram per teaspoon, he measured out 1/2 teaspoon and weighed it, it was .7 gram, he removed the extra .2 gram and did exactly the 1/2 gram he was trying for. He decided on a 1/2 gram starter after reading about 70 reviews on the 20X extract. There were recorded doses from 1/2 gram at a time to 4 grams, almost all of the more than 2 gram doses resulted in sudden and repeated vomiting. The smaller doses mostly had good reviews, so he decided to start small and hope for the best.
0:50- Got that 'He thinks he feels something' thing going on but he thinks it's just anticipation.
1:30- He's still not feeling anything but he has to eat, he's starving. He's going to have a small Sloppy Joe, wait a half hour or so for his stomach to start processing the food and then re-dose. He was thinking of another 1/2 gram dose but if he still feels nothing he might just do a whole gram.
1:45- He finished eating, brewed a cup of coffee, relaxed for a half hour. He still dosen't feel anything and that includes no nausea so he tossed and washed a whole gram.
2:15- About exactly 2 hours after the first 1/2 gram and he's starting to feel something, it's very weak but there is definitely a feeling of 'relaxation'. He'll wait another 15 minutes to see if it gets stronger, and since he does feel something, he'll just toss a 1/2 gram instead of the full gram he was planning on.
2:45- Thought he might be feeling more so he waited a half hour instead of 15 minutes but the sense of 'feeling' something did not grow. Toss and washed a second 1/2 gram. If this does not work, he will call it a night and try again tomorrow with a full gram dose.
3:45- Nothing yet!
4:45- Still nothing, he must have taken too small doses. He's going to call it a night, get some sleep and he'll try a full gram tomorrow.
Next day, 13 hours later, no 'hangover' effects from yesterday.
0:00- Toss and wash 1 gram.
2:30- He's been feeling 'traces' of an altered state but just traces. Certainly nothing he would pay for, or think 'Boy I can't wait to get out of work so I can do some'. He said it's really not even strong enough to describe. There is however a taste in the back of his mouth that reminds him of the taste he would get when he was dropping blotter acid 20 years ago. He has 2 grams left, he will probably just wait until tomorrow afternoon and do both grams at once and see what happens.
Next day, 22 hours later. Well rested, empty stomach.
He decided to try a different method, he made the last two grams of his 20X extract into a tea. He brought two cups of water to a slow boil and poured in the two grams. Boiled it down for about 25 minutes until it was reduced to about a cup of tea. He stirred in a teaspoon of honey, as all the info he could find on the product said it tastes terrible, especially warm.
0:00- He drank 1/2 cup of the mixture. He thinks it's because he's using the 20X extract instead of the leaf, but it didn't taste bad at all.
0:30- He had read that it kicks in quicker when made into a tea. After the first 30 minutes he said he felt a little something kicking in but could tell it was like the other attempts and not going to go to far, so he chugged down the rest of the tea.
1:10- Actually he feels pretty good, not F'd up or anything but nice and relaxed with a hint of Hydrocodone like euphoria.
1:35- Still feeling pretty good but it's not getting stronger. He's starving so he's going to have a burger and see if that helps, hurts or gets him sick.
2:00- Yeah, eating just sobered him up, he can still feel it but eating definitely diminished the effects. That was the last of the Kratom but he thinks if he can get the technique and dosage right this could be quite nice. He said he will buy some Maeng da Kratom leaf next time, just to make sure he is getting the full spectrum of the alkaloids, and brew that into a strong tea. He'll review that when he gets it. BTW, he smoked a bowl after eating and discovered that the two substances work very well together!
Thanks for reading my review;
I've been 'studying' kratom for seemingly forever now and I have racked up quite a knowledge base of information on it. Kratom expert? I don't know if I'd go around claiming to be one, however I do seem to have quite a solid understanding of the plant. It is QUITE amazing in the way it works. I have a little bottle of orange juice w/ 10g of Super green Bali shaken into it, and I'm about to chug this mf'er in a minute, and then I will become an UNSTOPPABLE CLEANING & KRATOM INFORMATION SPEWING MACHINE!!!! Nah, I'll prolly just get a little euphoric and stim'ed, chatty, call some family for the holidays, do some online shopping, run an errand, etc..
Here's a question for you Mr. Kratomexpertman: Do you notice little fibers of kratom leaf in your stool after frequent use? Do you think this is a sign of a digestive problem? I would think not seeing how corn does the same thing, and that's good for you...
At your present dosage, the kratom may or may not affect you. At the very least, it would help with the withdrawals, but I would be surprised if you were to get high from the Kratom at this point.
You are looking at a dosage of 10-15g powdered leaf with your current dosage of bupenorphine, I would think. I know that is a lot, but it will probably be enough to get you out of withdrawal and help you feel ok for a while.
