Using Mitragyna speciosa Kratom

Mitragyna speciosa Kratom leaf, Kratom leaf powder and extracts are best preserved in an cool environment where they are not exposed to air, humidity, heat or U.V. light. One could say that the storing conditions of Kratom are similar to those that one would use for good tea leaves. An airtight environment, such as an opaque sealed box placed in the refrigerator would be recommendable for storing Kratom. A vacuum-sealer would also increase preservation further. Freezing Kratom products has...
Mitragyna speciosa Kratom products can be brewed into tea or drinks, but leaves and leaf powder can also be swallowed directly, and still be active, which makes “cooking” with Kratom a real possibility- though one should keep in mind that these ideas or recipes actually aim at masking the somewhat bitter taste of Mitragyna speciosa Kratom, rather than actually nourish. Mixing Kratom with normal food works but probably slows down the absorption process, and diminishes Kratom’s maximum...
Extraction of the Mitragyna speciosa Kratom alkaloids into the tea is show to be facilitated by using powdered material, as this increases the surface area. So if one has crushed or whole dried Kratom leaf, it is best to grind the leaf to a rough powder in a food processor or a coffee grinder. Place one dose of Mitragyna speciosa Kratom and the equivalent of one mug or coffee cup of water in a small saucepan, and bring to a very light boil, over medium heat. Boil the Kratom for about 15...
Kratom can be smoked, but this is less recommended, as it is less effective than oral consumption, and slightly more complex. Indeed, the amount of leaf that constitutes a typical Kratom dose is too large to be smoked easily. This implies that smoking Kratom products has little real advantage over chewing or making a tea- not to mention the potential health issues linked with smoking any burning plant material. Yet this is partially true, as different routes of intake can often highlight...
A paste-like concentrated Kratom extract can be prepared by boiling of a quantity of fresh or dried Mitragyna speciosa Kratom leaves, which is then lengthily evaporated by boiling down, until the liquid is reduced to a concentrated tar / resin like extract, which can be stored for later use. Small pellets of this Kratom extract can be swallowed, or they can be dissolved in hot water and consumed as a Kratom tea. The effect of the Kratom extract are said to take longer to take effect, and...
This is a very simple and efficient way of consuming Mitragyna speciosa Kratom. The simplest way would be the “toss and wash”, placing the Kratom leaf or Kratom leaf powder in a glass of water, stirring and then gulping down the glass of water followed by another one. Mitragyna speciosa Kratom leaves are quite bitter, and this is therefore not to everyone’s taste. Another option is to place Mitragyna speciosa Kratom powder in large .00 size empty gelatine capsules, and swallow them. A...

Some people like to mix Kratom tea with some other infusion, such as ordinary black tea, or other herbal teas, in order to make the drink more palatable. Sugar or honey can be added to sweeten it and diminish Kratom’s bitterness and does not...
In South-East Asia, and Thailand in particular, Mitragyna speciosa Kratom is most often chewed fresh, in whole leaf form, usually after removing the leaves’ central vein, which helps chewing and is said to prevent nausea. This method of using Kratom is by far the most common, but is also greatly linked to the fact that Mitragyna speciosa Kratom actually grows in South-East Asia, implying that leaves can be picked and sold in a relatively quick time, without fear of rotting. Fresh Mitragyna...
There are multiple ways to prepare Mitragyna speciosa Kratom, from making a simple tea with the leaves, leaf powder or extract, to more complex preparations, such as “Kratom cooking”.
