Because kratom isn’t FDA tested or approved, kratom can only just be sold in the United States for burning as incense – it can burn quite nicely, with smells similar to a crisp fall day. I cannot condone the ingestion of kratom or kratom tea, but also for those who are looking for an all-natural, effective, legal method of attenuating chronic pain – say from Lyme Disease or spinal-cord issues, Kratom is an amazing leaf, and may provide relief you seek.
buy kratom powder wholesale Kratom is the dried and crushed (or powdered) leaves from the species Mitragyna speciosa, a tree that is native to Southeast Asia. The kratom tree is in exactly the same botanical family as the coffee tree. It’s been used as a medicinal & recreational herbal drug for thousands of years, and will be offering stimulant (at low doses), sedative (at higher doses), analgesic, and (yes) euphoric, opiate-like properties. Kratom contains similar alkaloids as the pharmaceutical, synthetic opiates, but is said to be significantly less addictive. In-fact, sometimes kratom is used as a means to reduce opiate addiction withdrawal symptoms. If you’re going to utilize it for pain relief, however, please be cautious and address it with respect.
how to use kratom powder kays After 2 back surgeries and years of occasional, yet severe discomfort, I’ve arrived at recognize that I needed a non-addictive means of controlling the spells of severe back pain that creep-up from time-to-time; kratom fits that bill perfectly. Kratom can be an all-natural solutions that basically works for me personally. Frankly, I’m uncertain if it actually dulls the trunk pain, or whether it creates me just not value it (because, frankly, it offers a really wonderful opiate-like buzz that feels just GREAT!). I assume it really doesn’t matter; I occasionally use kratom, Personally i think better… period. Life is good!
Now, there are a few who actually benefit from the age-old ritual of boiling-dipping-stirring-straining-repeating, to make a batch of kratom tea. Indeed, some also savor the alkaline-bitter, green-grass taste of kratom tea… but personally, I don’t care-for either. Do not get me wrong, I really like the smell of fresh kratom leaves & powder, and I really like the pain-relieving and attitude-altering effects of kratom, but that bitter alkali taste – the very ingredient which makes kratom so special, just turns my stomach. Kratom tea preparation isn’t ritualistic for me personally, but instead a required evil, a real pain-in-the-butt chore that needs to be accomplished in order to enjoy the benefits of the leaf.
BREWING THE BREW: I’ve found that utilizing an old-school coffee percolator takes the pain out of brewing kratom tea. I purchased a vintage glass Pyrex 8-cup percolator on eBay for 15 dollars, and it makes really great kratom tea. I’d stay-away from the automatic, plug-in tea or coffee makers, because you will want to brew your kratom tea much longer compared to the typical automatic coffee percolator cycle. I like my clear glass percolator for kratom brewing, in order that I could watch the tea darken as I go. Find a reliable source of kratom… remember, kratom is normally sold as incense. Personally, Personally i think you need to stay-away from extracts and adulterated “enhanced” mixtures – I stick with standard, all-natural kratom leaves.
Here’s my simple brew technique, you will need: – Half-ounce of crushed-leaf kratom. Some use powdered kratom, but I personally don’t like it, since it produces a muddy kratom tea. – 2 Litres of water (for just two 1 liter brewing cycles). – OPTIONAL, Lemon Juice (see amount below) – A stovetop percolator. – Another container – such as a 2 qt. pitcher, to combine both brew cycles together
LET’S GET STARTED!
1- Place the kratom in to the percolator basket, and pour 1 liter of water through the basket and in to the percolator before placing the upper strainer on, to dampen the kratom leaves. I then like to make sure that the kratom is evenly distributed in the basket after pouring. Some think that adding up to 25-percent lemon juice with the water supports extracting the alkaloids from the kratom leaf – it is a judgment call that only you possibly can make.
2- After the water heats-up & starts to percolate, start the clock – and let your kratom tea brew for at-least 15 minutes… 20-25 minutes is more to my taste. Keep as low a flame as possible, a really hard boil produces terrible-tasting kratom tea!
3- After the 1st brew, leave the kratom in the basket (it is possible to press them with a tablespoon if you like, to extract more liquid, but you no longer need), pour your brew right into a 2-quart container, then pour the next liter of clear water (or lemon-water) through the kratom filled basket and brew in addition, it, similar to the 1st. brew… again, a quarter-hour or more.
4- You’ll notice that the next brew cycle produces a lighter tea, because you’ve extracted all of the good things from the kratom leaves, thereby exhausting them.
5- Once finished I discard the leaves (some individuals eat them – YUCK!), Then i mix the 2 2 brews together in the 2-quart container to cool. Some boil the mixture down farther, to produce a stronger tea… I don’t.
6- After some cooling, I pour the kratom tea into cleaned-out plastic iced tea bottles, refrigerate what I’ll used in a couple of days, and freeze the rest. Refrigerated kratom tea is only going to last about 5 days, frozen tea will last months.
MASKING THE FLAVOR: As I mentioned above, I hate the taste of kratom tea. While I’ve never been able to totally mask the bitter flaver and aftertaste of kratom tea, I’ve found that a half-teaspoon of a commercial flavoring extract per 16 ounces of tea will really help. My favorites are raspberry & peach, but spearmint & peppermint also work quite nicely. I also add 2 teaspoons of sugar, Splenda or Stevia. I drink my tea cold (iced tea), and usually with a straw, because I can’t stand that mouth-numbing sensation, and the straw helps bypass the old tastebuds.
OTHER OPTIONS ON THE MARKET: I’m a large fan of capsules… because there’s hardly any tastes at all. “Toss-N-Wash” is another option… place a teaspoon (or tablespoon) of kratom toward the back of the throat, and quickly wash it down with a liquid – a large swallow. I use orange juice, but others claim that there’s actually benefit in using grapefruit juice – a a reaction to the acids in grapefruit juice.
Believe it or not, “toss-n-wash” can sometimes leave less aftertaste then tea, but the big problem with toss-n-wash is that occasionally, the kratom gets “stuck” in the throat – that is not just a pleasant experience! I haven’t tried “tossing-n-washing” anything apart from powdered kratom – I can’t imagine trying to swallow crush-leaf kratom!
So there you own it… an “easier, gentler’ approach to kratom use. I certainly hope that my experiences and observations with this amazing ethnobotanical will help you and others gain the beneficial ramifications of kratom. Again, please use kratom responsibly. Don’t drive while under it’s effects, make sure to give yourself the time needed to enjoy kratoms’ benefits; count-on the effects of kratom to last over 4 hours, and become sure that you’re in a safe, relaxing environment before using kratom.
