All I have to say is that you guys are most definitely a rare breed!!! I've been dabbling in Kratom for a couple of months now and I finally decided to dive into it a little deeper and made my first purchase of actual powder form Kratom the other day. I've been buying prefilled capsules from an online vendor,and while I've been pleased with the results so far, I figure I'm getting more value for my money to just buy it in powder form. I've had the opportunity to try several different strains from yellow,red,green,and white vein Kratom so I decided to purchase 30 grams of various strains now that I feel I have found my sweet spot dosage and figured out which strains were more effective for me.

Well I've read from several of you guys how bitter and disgusting this stuff is......but NOTHING could prepare me for what I was in store for!!!! Now I can handle just about anything when it comes to food,but this stuff......I don't even have the words to express the horrid taste! I decided to go with the toss and wash method after carefully weighing out 3 grams of Red Vietnam,and first off, this stuff adheres to whatever surface you put it on,and does not like to free it's grip. The miniature scale I purchased would not hold more than a gram safely in the small included plate that rests on the scale so I eventually found a plastic shot glass I had in my cupboard which sufficed perfectly. I attempted to use a small plastic spoon to place about a quarter of it on my tongue and I about spit it out everywhere. Eventually I grabbed a small bathroom cup and poured a little kratom at a time into the cup from the shot glass and filled the rest of the cup with water. I went thru about 40 ounces of water before I finally got all of it down!! I can still taste it when I burp. I may have to rethink purchasing kratom in powder form and just bite the bullet and pay a little extra for capsules lol. You guys are tougher than a Waffle House steak for being able to toss and wash this stuff. Any tips any of you could share to make this more manageable would be greatly appreciated !!

I put a small square of wax paper on my scale and measure onto that.

I NEVER put dry powder into my moth.

Sprinkle the dry powder onto the surface of some water in a glass and let it sit until it is all dissolved. This will take about 5 - 10 minutes depending on the amounts of water and powder.

Then you just give it a swirl and knock it back. It is a bit like drinking muddy water!

You can also make your own capsules...very economical.

Glad to see you are staying well hydrated!=D>

Like Bomalley said, you can make your own capsules. Buy empty capsules on Amazon and fill them up yourself.

You could also try putting some Kratom in a small glad ware tub with a lid and shake it, if you don’t want to wait for it to dissolve. Or you could try the same with orange juice instead of water, it masks the taste more.

Duly noted,guys. I will without a doubt experiment around til I find something that works for me. Orange juice does sound intriguing and I've also read mixing with Apple sauce sometimes helps. I will say this much though, ingesting it directly instead of thru capsules definitely sped up the time it took to feel the effects so it was somewhat worth it

I just put a teas spoon in my mouth ( dont breathe ) and then put in some luke warm water in, then swish it around like mouth wash then swallow. Then add more water, wash then drink the rest.
Pretty painless IMO. I find mixing it with stuff like orange juice makes it taste far more undesirable than just plain water.

Also when you go over a teaspoon you will have less space for the water and get dry crap against the tonsils or through the nose which can be annoying and the warmer the water, the quicker it mixes in there. Haven't had a issue in over a year since.

To tack on to one of Roadie's points - when you breathe through your mouth in process you will suck light particles down your throat and things will turn into Cough City.

It does take a little getting used to Tossing & Washing. The Taste is just Horrible at first but once you do it long enough you won't even taste it anymore. I always take a Swallow of Water first in my Mouth & hold it, Then put the Kratom on top of the Water in my Mouth & then take a Bigger Swallow of Water & then Swallow it Fast. That's always how I've done it for 8 years & I never have any Trouble. I can tell you that Kratom can be very messy if you ever spill it. You can use Orange Juice to Mask the Taste.

I take a small, capped jar (like a spice jar or an empty, clean prescription bottle), use a bit of Emergen C, my measured Kratom dose, small amount of water, cap, shake, drink and keep filling the bottle with water, drinking until it is clean.
The Emergen C is fizzy, so just a small amount is good.
Sweet, vitamin b, c and electrolytes + Kratom = easier to get down for me.
These days, I have two empty script bottles to use because Kratom has helped me control my chronic pain.
Cheers
