The time has come once again to dwell on the review of such a popular product in the world of entheogens as Kratom. As you can see, you will not find a definite answer to the question “What is the strength of psychotropic effects from Kratom use?”. This is not surprising, because all these above-mentioned effects are very specific, differing both in the plant variety, collection time, the producing country, and the individual characteristics of each individual consumer.
It is no secret that a great many achievements are attributed to Kratom. The most “truthful” and “proven” can be called the psychostimulant, tonic, relaxing and analgesic effects of this drug. It depends on how, in what way, and for what purpose you use it!
Speaking of how to properly and, most importantly, how to take Kratom, you always have the opportunity to get expert advice. Any self-respecting store of entheogens will never disregard this issue. So, let’s begin!
In pure form:
Not quite the traditional way to use the leaves of Kratom, which, oddly enough, is of great success with the peoples of Thailand. Everything is quite simple: the leaves chew, removing the central vein. Dry leaves can also be chewed, but in this case, it is better to buy Kratom in powder form and take orally, according to the dosage, drinking hot something.
In the form of a decoction:
Find Kratom in the form of a decoction is not so easy, and not quite appropriate. The art of preparing the extract does not require much time: you should simply boil the leaves in a small amount of water, evaporating the liquid. The substance that remained at the bottom – and there is an extract! In appearance, of course, not very, but stored for long enough.
In the form of tea:
Tea is simple! Fill Kratom leaves with hot water and boil for 10-15 minutes over low heat. Change the water and repeat the procedure 2-3 times. Tea can be made at its discretion – strong and not very. It is also recommended to take Kratom in combination with various herbal teas, using sugar, honey and sweets. By combining Kratom with one or another type of tea, you can enhance or weaken its effects on your body.
The most common type of kratom that you will certainly be offered in any specialty store is powder. In this case, Kratom is mixed with fruit puree, yogurt, fresh juice.
Kratom is a very unique plant. Its uniqueness is proved by the fact that small doses work as stimulants, and big doses – on the contrary, as relaxants. In fact, there is nothing unusual in this: active alkaloids always have a stimulating and relaxing effect.
Every person always has his own opinion on the account of any product that he has ever used in his practice. It should always be remembered that Kratom is a natural herbal tea, but not a healing magic drug, therefore, it should be used wisely. Your reaction to Kratom may be unpredictable. At the first acquaintance with this product it is better not to overdo it with the dosage, starting with the minimum proportions of 1-2 g. Having determined your sensitivity to the drug, you can safely experiment, discovering its new, sometimes unexpected, facets.
