Fact about Kratom – Infographic

Published July 23, 2013 by Hadufuns Bernardo

Above image is a comparison about myths versus reality about Kratom. For my opinion either it’s myths or reality both are right, why? Simple because data do change and improve. As each generation pass, a new era will be born and old data will be use for reference but ofcourse not all things in this world can be updated immediately.

Today kratom can be use in United State, I’ m pretty sure that US wont allow people to use it if there isn’t any scientific research. I’ve also research that many people are using kratom for cooking and some people drink it like tea. We all know that taking too much of anything is not very good to our health so we just really need some self-discipline, even drinking to much water before we sleep is not good to our boy, so either it’s myths or reality we still need to be caution about our healthy.

Kratom in Hot Chocolate Drink Recipe

Kratom in Hot Chocolate Drink

Kratom in Hot Chocolate Drink

Ingredients:

  • The amount of kratom for one dose (dry leaf or powder)
  • Hot chocolate mix (syrup or powder)
  • Distilled water

Special Tools:

  • Grinder (a coffee or pepper grinder will do)

Procedure:

  1. Start by weighing out the amount of kratom you usually use for one dose.  If your kratom is already a very fine powder, jump to Step 3.  Otherwise, go on to Step 2.
  2. Take the kratom leaf and grind it until it is as fine as you can get it with your grinder.  The smaller the particles, the better.
  3. Weigh out the hot chocolate mix for the recipe.  Ideally, you want to go with a ratio of equivalence: x grams of kratom will get x grams of hot chocolate. It is perfectly possible to add more hot chocolate than kratom to the mixture, however, if you find that the kratom is still too hard to swallow with less.
  4. Put both the kratom and the hot chocolate in a cup and fill that cup with boiling water.
  5. Stir the mixture gently and then leave it for a quarter of an hour.
  6. Stir the mixture again after the 15 minutes are done and then drink down the cup in as few gulps as possible, making sure to stir in between gulps so that the kratom goes down with the liquid.  Consume all the plant material.

Taking kratom with hot chocolate actually helps those who have a tendency to vomit or get nauseated from kratom consumption alone.  The hot chocolate helps to mask the flavour, which is often the case of the nausea, and consuming the entirety of the plant material—as opposed to just drinking a liquid or tea made from infusion of the leaves—delivers a more potent and swifter experience of the herb’s effects.

This is actually taken from the toss and wash method, which most beginners (and even long-time kratom users) find gag-worthy.  In my experience, this is one of the best ways to get the plant material down without having to fight back the urge to vomit.

Kratom’s Effects and the Opiate Euphoria Connection

Published July 15, 2013 by Hadufuns Bernardo

Among the most popular of the queries presented to people with knowledge of kratom has to be that inquiring about its effects.  What does kratom usage feel like?  The answer to this, unfortunately, is not precise: like most other psychoactive substances, kratom can be experienced in slightly different ways by different people.  Of course, there are some generalities that may be noted by way of answer, but it is nevertheless important to note the individual/subjective nature of every kratom experience, as well as the individual nature of every experience’s description, given that different people have different vocabularies.

The best way of describing kratom’s effects would be to say that the herb is capable of inducing a two-tiered—sometimes subsequent, often simultaneous—effect that combines elements of stimulation with sedation.  For many, this means a boost in energy combined with an analgesic and relaxing or anxiety-relieving sensation.  The curious combination has been likened by some to a cup of coffee, but with a gentler onset as well as comedown.  Effects can change due to dosage, of course: higher doses tend to be more sedative and pain-relieving, which is where the herb comes in handy to those with painful complaints.

Indeed, this analgesic faculty is what makes kratom so popular in informal medical usage not just in its native lands but also in countries such as the US.  Its opiate-like pain-killing mechanism makes it an attractive option to those hoping to wrest themselves free of dependence on standard opioids like morphine, as kratom is largely reported in anecdotes and preliminary studies to have less addictive potential for most users, besides also having far milder withdrawal symptoms compared to other opiates.  That having been said, it must be noted too that something rarely mentioned in most cursory examinations of the herb’s potential as an opiate substitute deserves more attention, given its importance to most users’ experiences: the euphoria it induces.

For many opiate users, the euphoria they often get from morphine and similar opioids is as important as the pain relief.  Pain of the type requiring opiate medication usually comes hand in hand with anxiety and depression, and people often end up becoming addicted to opiates even after the pain is gone simply because they are still medicating the remainder of the anxiety and depression.  Kratom induces a mild euphoria similar to that produced by other opiates but also has a milder addiction level, which means that with smart usage, it can become the solution for those hoping to beat their pains and anxieties without having to sacrifice a little of their independence.
