DOSE:
5 - 10 g oral Kratom (tea)

BODY WEIGHT: 175 lb


After 7 years of consistent Tramadol use for disc issues (not abuse, but rather taken daily in non-variable doses of 100mg 4x daily), I made the decision that I no longer wanted be a slave to a pill, let alone Big Pharma. I wanted to purify, and knew all too well of the horror stories of people coming off Ultram / Tramadol after extended use. Its unique combination of opiate antagonist/anti-depressant, makes for one NASTY time going clean, from everything I've heard.

Having known of Kratom from past interest and use in both MJ and psychoactives--I've dosed LSD and psilocybin socially about 7-8 times--I knew that many had found success in using Bali Kratom [Kratom Bali Leaf Green Vein] tea as a means of more successfully tapering off.

Now, it was by mere coincidence that I happened to be in the possession of a bag of homemade tollhouse cookies, and having always enjoyed dowsing these in coffee, milk or what-have-you, the idea of pouring the opaque yellowish liquid over some crumbled up chocolate chip cookies just sort of happened. 'Why not?' I thought. So I retrieved my K-tea from the refrigerator, which I'd prepared 6 hours prior, and heated up just a small amount (maybe 1/3 cup liquid) in the microwave for 25 seconds, and proceeded to crumble in a large tollhouse cookie… one that appeared to have notable chip content.

After stirring it into a nice mush, I was still very resilient about that first bite, and was honestly expecting to gag or end up dumping it. To my surprise, it completely killed ALL bitterness, and I do mean all. Immediately I prepared a full dose, estimated at 6g Kratom, with three cookies stirred in. I know this sounds nuts, but it actually was very enjoyable… almost like a nice coffee-ish dessert.

Of course, this could easily get addictive and I will need to work out a little more to compensate for the extra calories. I hate the taste of choking down 2-3 doses daily during my opiate tapering phase, it honestly doesn't get more yummy and pleasant than this. I'm still shocked at how good it was. My guess would be that it has something to do with the brown sugar and maybe the vanilla extract, though I'm not sure.
