I Feel Like I Just Wasted $20
Kratom

DOSE:
1 Tbsp oral Kratom (tea)

BODY WEIGHT: 155 lb


Okay First Time

I got 20g of crushed leaves(non-extract) from a reputable source, and used a tablespoon in a tea ball to make tea. After letting steep for about 10-15 min, I chewed and swallowed the wad of wet Kratom (it's not bitter when it's just leaves, not extract, similar to jasmine or black tea). Within about an hour, I felt the stimulant effects, but by an hour and a half they wore off and I felt like I had just taken a vicodin/opiate or perhaps valium. Blood pressure began to rise and now it is at an uncomfortable level, but I still feel good. It also gave me diarrhea.

Verdict: Will try again with Propanolol (a beta-blocker) to combat the circulatory side effects and to enhance anxiolytic effects. I was looking for something to combat anxiety, and I think it might do that well, if only it didn't raise blood pressure. Overall, I feel like I just wasted $20.
