I recognized that Kratom is a tree native to Southeast Asia.
Kratom can be smoked, but doing so has no advantage over chewing or making a tea from it.

What should I know before taking it? Any experiences people here?

Keep in mind if mixing it with fluids, it will not dissolve completely. Prepare for the earthy taste, I like to mix it in with cinnamon applesauce, it helps :P Also you must be pretty new to it if this is your first time. So keep in mind with Kratom less is always more, what I mean by this is the lower doses will provide you with energy while the higher doses will be more sedating. Also know the strain you're taking, while whites tend to provide most pain relief all strain do have pain relieving qualities. Green vein tends to be more energizing while the reds are the sedating strains. Hopefully this helps a little B)

One thing that you should know is that you may get nausea. When my mother took it for the first time, I gave her a meager dosage of only 2.5 grams and she got very nauseous a few hours later. She didn't respiond to it well. Although that is uncommon, just be aware that not everyone responds to the herb the same. Also, as Marie C stated, know what your taking. Some strains are best for pain relief, some for energy, some for relaxation. I generally prefer red strains, especially Red Vein Sumatra as it's the longest lasting strain I've tried.

Also, don't smoke it. You would need to smoke a huge amount, it will be horrible for your lungs, and most of the compounds would be destroyed from the heat. Taking it orally is best. I prefer capsules because I don't like the taste of the tea or from chewing. Start with a few grams or just 1 or 2 teaspoons.
