how do you measure the grams?
i havent ordered yet and was thinking of just getting capsules its so much easier but cant find a good place to get them?? also i havent tried it yet and dont know if kratom is for me i suffer from migraines and back pain, stress, anxiety just want to try this see if it helps anyone do the capsules? the tea sounds really gross lol and whats wash and toss?
Hello and nice to meet u :-h And welcome to ILK. 🙂
I would suggest against the capsules, yes they are easier to take but they are not as effective as they do not all break down at the same speed, thus making the dose a bit iffy about how much kratom you are actually digesting at a time.
Wash and toss is the best method in my opinion and that is where you put some liquid in your mouth and dump your kratom in and swallow it, making sure not to inhale during this process then chasing it with more liquid. I would suggest drinking orange juice with it.
Or you can pour a small amount of orange juice in a cup and dump your kratom in and stir it up until it finally starts to mix, then drink it fast and chase it with fresh orange juice. this makes the taste not so bad and the orange juice will get the taste out of your mouth almost immediately. This method may be best for your first time trying it. but i would def. suggest against the capsules, plus they are a little higher. Just ground plain leaf works great. 🙂
Since you are just trying kratom i would suggest looking through the vendor list and buying some sample packs, they are cheap and gives u a selection of dif strains to try to find your favorites. Herbal salvation i believe has a very good deal on their sample packs. For pain releif green strains might be effective, at least they are for me, like Green Bali, or Green Malaysion.
To measure grams without a scale, each level teaspoon is approx. 2 grams. for trying kratom i would suggest 2-3g. the first time, if it is not effective you may increase the dose but only do it at 1g, or half gram, at a time approx 30 min to an hour later If you feel no effects. But only do that once, then wait four to five hours before you try another dose.. Also wait about four to five hours in between doses works great. Kratom is very Subtle so you may notice effects but they are not very strong, if this happens be wary of adding more, as you might take too much and get sedation or negative effects.
I hope this helps and Anyone can correct me if i said something wrong i will not take offense 🙂

Solid Advice levonne. You have learned well.

I'll second that. Good solid advice, Levonne, only I haven't tried that particular vendor.
