As you know Kratom originates from the Southeast Asian countries where the natives used to chew on these plants for its therapeutic and recreational properties. However, with time, the chewing practice of Kratom leaves started fading away when many companies and manufacturers identified the benefits associated with Kratom. Hence, these sellers have come up with different ways by which Kratom can be consumed so that the bitter taste is not felt. So this post is going to highlight the variety of ways by which Kratom can be ingested by users without having to subject their taste buds to a taste that is extremely bitter.
Kratom powder is quite popular since most of the strains are available in the powder form worldwide. The powder came into existence due to the fact that the leaves can’t be stored for a long time. The leaves are perishable and hence they are dried by various methods and then crushed to get the resultant fine powder. The fine powder has the consistency as that of the flour. By this way, the powder can be stored safely for a long period of time without getting spoilt. Also, make sure you store your powder in a cool, dark place away from sunlight. The powder can be mixed with tea or any other beverage to get rid of the bitter taste.
Kratom capsules were introduced in an attempt to get rid of the bitter taste completely. Most users decided to even stay away from Kratom after their futile attempts to digest the bitter taste. Hence, the manufacturers came up with the traditional way of having capsules. This mode of consumption can be considered as an extension to the Kratom powder since the very powder is contained in the capsules which can be veggie or gelatin. The veggie capsules are made up from HPMC and purified water and they are non-GMO, Gelatin free and devoid of any chemical preservatives. The gelatin capsules are made from animal-byproducts due to which they contain preservatives and other chemicals. If you are someone who tends to get allergic reactions due to chemicals, then you can very well go for the veggie Kratom capsules that are less risky.
On average, a Kratom capsule would contain 0.5 grams of Kratom powder. Also, Kratom capsules take much time to get absorbed into the bloodstream since the outer layer has to get digested first and only then the absorption of Kratom powder by the gastric enzymes take place.
Kratom tea has become quite popular and common now that it has started replacing the usual beverages like tea and coffee. Also, a cup of Kratom tea in the morning is said to impart various beneficial effects for the whole day keeping the users calm and relaxed.
You can prepare your own Kratom tea in easy steps. For example, you will have to take up 50 Kratom leaves and boil them in one liter of water up to half an hour. Once you heat them well, you will get a strained liquid which must be retained. Repeat the process with the liquid again by adding one more liter of water and heat it again. You will now receive a strained solution after removing the leaves, which must be heated again and again to reduce the quantity up to 100ml or less. There you go with your Kratom tea which must have the consistency of the tea and not that of syrup. The 100ml of Kratom tea is equal to two strong doses.
This is one of the forms of Kratom that is consumed by some users. Kratom resin is nothing but a concentrated form of Kratom liquid which looks like tar or a syrup. It is achieved by boiling the leaves for a long time after which a paste-like resultant is obtained.
The process of preparing Kratom resins is easy and quite similar like the process of Kratom tea preparation. You will have to take a handful of Kratom leaves and then boil it in one liter of water for an hour. Once the liquid is strained and the quantity is reduced to half, then you will have to add one liter of water again and heat it gradually. The straining process happens again and with repeated steps, the resultant liquid possesses a consistency similar to that of syrup. This syrup is then frozen and can be used in small doses with juice or any other beverage due to the concentration.
These are some of the ways by which you can consume Kratom. It is up to you to decide on one particular way that suits you the best.
