How to use Kratom?
It is always a good idea to put the myriad health benefits and healing power of Kratom to good and effective use. Consider the crushed leaves or powder as a potent ingredient for any recipe, and you have plenty of options at your disposal. Following are some of them:
Toss and wash: The quickest way to ingest Kratom powder is to directly swallow a suitable dose with a big sip of water. This also helps the body to absorb it faster.
Kratom Tea: This is an all-time favorite treat for tea addicts and the most widely used method. Scroll down to learn how to brew your perfect cup of Kratom tea.
Pre-workout drink: This is an effective way to tap on the energizing benefits of Kratom. All the athletes or gym fanatics can mix the powder in their pre-workout drink and experience an instant boost of energy.
Chewing Raw Leaves: For centuries, locals in the native herb regions, were habitual of chewing the fresh or dried kratom leaves (after removing the central vein) to get immediate results. However, this is a relatively tough given the pungent taste of the herb.
Kratom Slurry: This is yet another quick and convenient alternative to use Kratom. Add the desired dose of Kratom to a glass of water, stir thoroughly to distribute it evenly, and immediately gulp down the suspension before the residue settles down.
Kratom Smoothie, Juice, or Shake: If you can't stand the bitter taste of raw Kratom, you can consider mixing it in a beverage of your choice and making it more palatable. From banana smoothie, chocolate milkshake, apple juice, orange slush. You name it. (To avoid lumps or the powder to float on top or settle at the bottom it is recommended to add it while preparing the beverage instead of tossing it in last).
Adding it to the Meal: If the above methods don't work, we promise this won't fail. Add kratom powder to your food recipe or even flavored yogurt to remarkably mask the original flavor as well as fragrance. And enjoy all the Kratom health benefits without actually experiencing it.
How to make Kratom tea?
Brewing a piping hot cup of Kratom Tea is super easy yet flavorsome. Here's how to make it: a) Preparing Tea From Kratom Powder
Pour a cup of water into the saucepan and heat it (but don't bring it to boil).
Add your dose of kratom powder and stir vigorously until the powder is completely dissolved.
Let it simmer for 15 minutes and switch off the flame.
Add a sweetener of your choice if you don't like the natural bitter taste.
Add an enhancer like lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, pineapple juice, or honey if you wish to enhance the flavor.
Mix thoroughly until the mixture is even.
Stain your tea with a strainer or coffee filter to separate residue that did not dissolve. Your tea is ready to gulp down.
b) Preparing Tea from Crushed Leaf
If you like a clear tea, without that powdery texture, then this alternative is for you. The steps are pretty much the same as above except that you need to add crushed leaves, simmer more thoroughly till around 20 to 30 minutes on a low flame to render a strong flavor, and strain it well.
Add an enhancer and a sweeter of your choice and indulge in the pure pleasure of a hot cup of tea on a chilly morning or a cold evening.
Tip: If hot beverages are not your type, how about a refreshing iced tea perfect to relish on a sunny day? All you have to do is make tea using the steps above and add two teaspoons of honey, ½ cup orange juice, and ½ cup pineapple juice. Stir to form a perfect mixture, let it cool, pour it in a tall glass, toss in some ice, and you are good to go!
