So this gnome has been a regular user of kratom since first discovering this wondrous herb in 2008.

I haven't found too much detailed information on how people prepare their kratom.

I personally feel steeping the leaf leaves behind most of the desirable alkaloid. I'll show you how the gnomes been preparing tea for the last several years.

 

What you'll need:

A small cooking pot

A strainer or colander

2 bowls

2 coffee filters

4 cups of fresh water*

3-15g Kratom

 

I won't get very into doses, I find a 3-6g cup to be stimulating and a 7-15g cup to be relaxing and sedative with strong pain killing qualities.

First, pour two cups of fresh water into your pot and bring it to a light rolling boil just barely higher than a simmer (med/low on my stove)

Then directly dump the leaf into the lightly boiling/simmering water and mix till leaf is saturated.

Let this water/leaf mix very lightly boil/simmer for 15 minutes.

Set up your strainer over a bowl and place coffee filter in. Strain tea through filter. Ball up ends of filter and squeeze out excess liquid.

Refill your pot with another two cups of fresh water and bring to a light boil.

Now dump your coffee filter of leaf into the fresh boiling/simmering water and allow it to simmer another 15 minutes.

Again, set up your strainer over a bowl and place coffee filter in. Strain tea through filter. Ball up ends of filter and squeeze out excess liquid.

At this point your leaf is mostly spent of it's alkaloid. (although I save my spent leaf and freeze it. A 30g cup of "third brew" kratom following the same tek above is a decent dose when your all out of fresh kratom)

WP_20160806_11_22_31_Pro.jpg

 

Combine both bowls of first and second brew, let cool, and enjoy.

WP_20160806_11_39_48_Pro.jpg

WP_20160806_11_39_57_Pro.jpg

 

 

Or drink the first brew while you wait on the second to finish up.

 

I like to split it up to 2-3 doses to drink at different times of the day.

*adding additional water I feel gives more room for the alkaloids to suspend in the water. Of course this means more liquid to stomach at the end.

 

 

**Note: If your water/leaf looks like this your heat is too high!

When I use kratom I use a tea spoon and let it soak in grapefruit juice until saturated then stir and drink.
I also use water with a splash of lemon juice in it let it sit 15 -20 minutes until soaked then stir and drink.

I probably have 2 pounds of Kratom though I have not had any in over 2 months maybe longer.

I am interested in how others use this leaf.

I wonder how kratom and mushrooms mix? good or not?

Great right up Gnome. I personally have never tried kratom yet..... I definitely plan too in the future. Working my butt off to place an order for some papaver samniferum, mimosa hostilis, and more lophophore williamsii seeds. Looking to get some San Pedro's too.

Sade Kratom is subtle at first then afterwards you notice how powerful it really is. I like others found my first experience with Kratom
was not so powerful. I noticed after a time or 2 that the Kratom was powerful

look into Kratom by its scientific name  - mitragyna speciosa. to understand the chems involved.

I think you should find while it can be stimulating it is an opiate.

We want to here about your experiences with Kratom.

I have at least a pound or more .
