Of course, I can't be sure, but I think grapefruit juice freed up something in kratom that I'm allergic to. I thought I'd share here in case someone else wants to experiment with it. I had already read to burn less kratom at first when trying this, but allergic reactions might be another reason to take it slow.

I burned some kratom that I had tried before and was fine with, but this time I soaked it in grapefruit juice. Later I got a tightening sensation in my throat and increased saliva production. It wasn't scary or anything, just uncomfortable. I had this same reaction to sprouted lentils a while back (took me forever to figure out why I was drooling then!) and now know to take benadryl to make it go away. Nothing else in my daily routine had changed except for the grapefruit soaked kratom.

So if you're going to try this, you might want to use a smaller amount and have an antihistamine on hand. :)

That was thoughtful of you to mention this here. What you describe is what I encounter when eating eggplant. I get a tightening in the throat area and an itchy feeling in my mouth. Obviously, I stay away from eggplant. The thing with kratom that I have found is it can open up blocked sinus passages caused by seasonal allergies and even make the sometime severe symptoms diminish in intensity. Kratom does so many positive things for the health and wellbeing that it never ceases to amaze and delight.

That's interesting about the sinuses! I wonder what other new things I'll discover. =)

Try the grapefruit juice WITHOUT the Kratom and see what happens.

Will do... I've had this brand before though. Maybe it's bad.

I suspect the grapefruit juice but if you've had it before...? It is possible to allergic to substances at any time. If you do okay on the juice, I wouldn't mix it again. Many medications should not be taken with grapefruit or grapefruit juice due to a substance in it that can synergize the effects and/or slow the amount of time (increases the 1/2 life) it takes to metabolize.

I drank some juice without kratom and had no problem. It could have been anything, but I'm not going to be mixing my kratom with grapefruit juice again. :)
