This isn't posted 8n general dialogue, so its a serious post for me.

I noticed this morning my kratom smelled funny. I know it's a leaf, but it smells like a tangy leaf. It's all started in glass Marion hard that are usually cool to the touch. My house stays like 70 degrees. Do you think all my kratom is bad? I haven't smoked in 27 hours so maybe that's it, but I can never be sure.

Dang it is stored pretty close to a a/c vent. It could be mold. Is there anyway to test it myself?

Your ENTIRE COLLECTION is stored by an AC vent?

Sorry, some of your question has typos.

It's stored in mason jars, and the mason jars are stored close to the a/c vent in my bedroom. I really think they're all spoiled.
Is there a way to test them myself?

Take a peice of grass and rub it in your fingers into a paste. This is the only relatable smell I can think of

Sounds moldy. Pitch it and move your collection to a darker, dry space to avoid this in the future.

I have no experience with moldy kratom, but Indonesian’s see it ALL THE TIME. It’s not hard to get mold on kratom. Bummer. Hope it’s stuff you don’t like all that much. Don’t take the chance, you’ve got enough challenges to overcome.
How’s the family? Hello to the preemies!

She's 32 weeks now. So we're in the clear for q long nicu visit. And my son is starting to pull him self up on the crib. I just brought 150 grams from head shot and it's smelling the same exact way. I started back smoking you think it was because I quit smoking for 2 days?

Could be. MUST BE. Too bad you smoked to see if it’s that. Smoking screws up the senses of taste and smell. YES, MUST BE A FALSE ALARM.

A barrage of loved ones are losing pets this week (including Teeswaran, here) and simple tasks are getting all effed up! It’s impossible to focus when putting dogs down, having them lost through other circumstances, is REALLY making a few friends a safety hazard as they process these losses.

I would think YOUR STESS is similar in nature, what with all of the FEAR OF LOSING THE KIDS OR WIFE OR...

Please be kind to yourself and try not to do BIG PROJECTS while these life challenges are in process.

I’d say to quit smoking LATER, and I still might. But it’s not gonna go well with carrying kids everywhere. I’ve seen the STUFF you gotta pack to take a kid out of the house (never had them myself)! Holy mackerel! My back hurts WATCHING families go from car to beach (or whatever).

The smoking will become a hassle soon - you won’t have time! I’m trying to find a replacement for the habit also (I vape nicotine and it screws up my blood circulation). I have not yet come up with a suitable “reward” that “soothes” the way nicotine does. I’m open to non fattening ideas.

TODAY IS NATIONAL SMILE DAY! :-D

Glad your kratom is likely fine. Until the next crisis, so long as everyone is healthy and alive today - SMILE!

IF it is moldy then it would smell musty or fermented, either like cheese OR alcohol.

MOLD does not usually smell like grass.

OF course it is impossible to know for sure, BUT Kratom is a dried leaf.... Is it any wonder that it would smell like a crushed plant?

Another important thing is HAS THE SMELL CHANGED? What did it smell like before?

PS....glad to see you are trying to give up smoking Frogs...Glad about the maternity situation too!

Smelled like freshly strong kratom and now all of them smells off. Kinda like bentungi, but not as strong. I've had diarrhea last couple of days. I really hate to throw it all out. I'm going to put some in the the over. If it 2
dries it out and the smell is gone I guess I'll no for sure. Diarrhea could just be completely unrelated.
