DOSE:
4.5 g oral Kratom (ground / crushed)

BODY WEIGHT: 140 lb


Wake up from sleep and go right to the bag of powdered kratom. No substances were ingested the night prior. I weighed out 4.5g of Green Maeng da Kratom and mixed in a small bottle of orange juice.

T 0:00 I drank the kratom and orange juice concoction. The bitter earthy taste, despite the orange juice, makes me want to vomit.

T 0:20 I feel warmth spread throughout my body and can feel energy like a weak cup of coffee. I notice I can稚 erase a smile off my face. Slight nausea. A little dizzy.

T 0:45 It feels like I have a warm blanket on my body. My body feels very relaxed and I知 motivated to get school work done.
My body feels very relaxed and I知 motivated to get school work done.
I知 still smiling and laughing at the smallest things. Vision seems a little blurry or hazy, but not impairing. The nausea is still present but not any worse. The dizziness has gotten stronger, but not unbearable.

T 1:30 This feels very comparable to a weak dose of Percocet. I have tons of energy and euphoria. My body is still relaxed and warm. The nausea has gone away and I知 banging out missed work from school like nothing. I still feel a little dizzy, but it seems like it痴 going away.

T 2:30 I知 starting to feel itchy, and the warmness is still mostly present. The euphoria for the most part is gone. I feel very tired and if I close my eyes feel as though I can drift off to sleep. The energy has gone away too.

T 3:30 The itching has increased, but is very tolerable. My drowsiness has increased, and I feel very hazy. I have a slight headache as well.

T 5:00 After finishing a paper for school, I was watching tv and fell asleep. I woke up around an hour later. The effects seem to have completely worn off and I feel back to baseline.

Summary:
The euphoric and relaxing qualities of kratom at 4.5g lasted around 2 hours. After that, drowsiness took over. The experience was great for getting boring work done due to its energy increasing and euphoric properties. Kratom produces a milder effect than marijuana, and is less impairing in my opinion.
