Powder to Tummy

When I was first researching kratom, I wanted to find out how people were actually consuming kratom. Were they smoking it, eating it, drinking it? It turns out there are a number of different ways that people consume kratom. I've found that kratom mixed in with a cup of tea works very well for me. I prefer chamomile or peppermint, which help mitigate the bitter taste. I recently discovered that low-sodium tomato juice also works very well with kratom, and almost completely masks the bitterness. On most days, though, I'll drink it with a tea, and I've come to accept the bitter taste to the point where it no longer bothers me. I've also found that kratom mixed with Greek yogurt is a tasty snack.

Have any favorite recipes? Feel free to share them with me -- and fellow readers -- in the comments!

    2. I make a little "parachute" with some thin toilet paper with the kratom inside, put it on the back of my tongue and swallow it down with a swig of juice or something, never taste it at all. Quick and easy. Can make just one or a few of them depending on the dose. One time I burped shortly after swallowing one and I burped out a little cloud of kratom powder, it was funny (doesn't take much to entertain me!)

    3. I've heard of that method before, but was always a little weirded out by the idea of swallowing toilet paper. Congratulations on the kratom burp; my kid would have LOVED that! ;-)

  2. How does one go about making a kratom tea? May sound like a silly question, but I've never been a tea drinker.

    1. Howdy! Great question. I can't speak for everyone, but the way I make it is very simple. I just add my dose to a cup of green tea or chamomile tea, stir it up and drink. I do end up drinking the kratom powder itself, which gets a little grainy toward the end, as you can imagine. I usually wash what's left down with water. There are more elaborate recipes on YouTube, and other places on the net that might be easier to swallow, so to speak, but this method has worked for me for years. If you want to get rid of the bitter taste, a pinch of stevia works wonders!
