First Time Kratom
I am a long time drug user of 19 years but this my first time using kratom. I have used pot, coke, lsd, meth, shrooms, and opiates. Opiates are my favorite. After reading about kratom online I decided to try it. My package of premium dried leaf kratom that I ordered from an online retailer arrived today. I ate a normal breakfast, lunch and a small dinner.
Prep: I emptyed 1 ounce (28 grams) of premium crushed dried dried leaf kratom into a pot and added 24 ounces of water and 3 tablespoons of bottled lemon juice. I brought the mixture to a low boil and boiled it for 20 minutes. After boiling I strained the liquid into a coffee pot using a screen like strainer, I squeezed the liquid out of the kratom by pressing it with a spoon. I repeated the boiling 2 times for a total of 3 adding 24 ounces of water and 3 tablespoons of lemon juice the second time and 16 ounces of water and 3 tablespoons of lemon juice the third time. I pressed the liquid out with a spoon each time and squeezed the liquid out of the kratom with my hand after the third extraction. I added 1/3 cup of sugar to the liquid in the coffee pot stirred it then emptied the liquid into two 500 ml. Bottles putting one bottle in the refrigerator.
11:45pm I poured as much as I could from one of the 500 ml. Bottles into a coffee mug and drank it and repeated until the bottle was gone. The kratom tea was kind of bitter but not really hard to drink. No other drugs were consumed today or tonite other than cigarettes.
11:55pm After I drink all the kratom tea from one 500 ml. bottle I lit a cigarette and laid down in my bed and watched some tv and I am starting to feel the effects of the kratom. Kind of like a light opiate buzz.
12:30 am The kratom buzz has reached its peak. I have a stronger opiate like buzz kind of like taking 2 or 3 vikoden 10s. I feel no nausea.
3:00am. The effects of the kratom is fading. I did feel a little nausea around 2:00am but it wasnt enough to bother me and it is gone now.
Conclusion: I enjoyed kratom and will use it again. Opiates are a better buzz than kratom but kratom is a good legal alternative.
