Woohoo another new megathread
Anyone have any experience with doing their own extractions with kratom? I was wondering if preparing in a soy lecithin mixture or even warm milk might help to extract a broader alkaloid spectrum than just making tea with water
And from what I've heard, milk can 'ruin' the effects of kratom. I don't know why but I've seen quite a few posts about that.
I might just experiment a bit. Znegative about how much extra kratom do you have to use for a dose of resin compared to a T&W dose? That sounds super convenient, and convenience is one reason why I'm wondering about at home extractions.
I really don't want to fuck around with buying super extracts and killing my tolerance
Forgive me for the Newb Kratom question but what is the best way to take kratom, can I just mix it with juice? I am just skeptical of ordering anything over the Internet as who know what is really in the product. Sorry just my paranoid side.
Just to clarify, you'd reccomend 2 extractions vs a 50/50 single?To get the broadest spectrum of alkaloids, you would need to do separate extractions of the same plant material with 95% ethanol, water, then a mixture of the two. Combining these extractions would then yield a wide variety of alkaloids.
Basically, you can repeat extractions with different solvents on the solid plant material you collect from filtering. Since water and ethanol are miscible, you wouldn't really get a wider variety by using say 50% v/v ethanol solution
Stock up now, or make a friend out of state. Also dnm's seem to have a good supply so fear not lolLucky you. I got 250g of red vein sumatran coming tomorrow, just want it to keep me calm and happy. Hope to God it works cos if so I'm good for the next 25 days. Then game over for the kratom, illegal here soon :-(
Took 10 grams of Bali. Feeling very nice.
How long have you been taking kratom? I'm curious because I'm real new to it, and when I first started their didn't seem to really be a 'ceiling', the more I took the better I felt, though if I went to high I'd get nauseous and shaky, now though 2 1/2 months in to taking kratom every day, it seems like the more I take, the less 'effects' I get from it, to the point where I feel like taking a tablespoon would actually provide less then one teaspoon. I don't know if this is because my body is having a hard time digesting all the plant matter or what, but looking at whats left of my kratom stash today I've decided to try to dose as little and as infrequently as possible, since I don't feel the effects of T&W at high dosages anyway, might as well lower the dosage. I'd keep making the tea but I seriously have to use so much kratom and it's getting a little bit wasteful.
