Long story short, I've been using the toss and wash method and taking Kratom daily for the past month and a half, and up until recently, it's been amazing. I'm taking it for depression/anxiety and have been so thankful for the daily mood lift, it's made life so much more pleasant as well as giving me huge energy boosts and allowed me to be more productive. I was taking 1 teaspoon daily in the morning on an empty stomach with grapefruit juice so that's only 2.5 grams but that seemed to be enough. I was feeling so good that I casually ignored the side effects (gas, bloating, constipation, weird stools) and tried to deal with it with making sure I was hydrated and taking various fiber supplements. Anyhow not sure if I had a bad batch last week but I had some serious stomach pains/vomiting and stopped the kratom for the last few days and have been clearing out my system on a fiber cleanse etc, I feel a lot better but after doing research it's time for me to put in the time to start making Kratom Tea.

I found this youtube video was the most detailed and easy to follow on instructions on how to make it,

Also, this reddit link is helpful as well,


Just wondering if anyone else has made this transition? I realize my issues could just be a bad batch but as mentioned the constant gas and thin stools/constipation/bloating that was occurring even before my physical meltdown leads me to believe that my digestive system just can't handle this kratom powder on a daily basis without these issues. Obviously, since I won't be digesting any of the actual powder with this tea creation this should solve my issues as it has for many others apparently. In the youtube video, the mixing with the lemon juice and heated water to increase the effects of kratom should hopefully be enough to make the mood lifting effects I desire as strong (if not stronger hopefully) as my toss and wash method even though I'll be straining out the powder etc.

Anyhow, for anyone else looking to try the tea making method hope those 2 links help as I spent a lot of time researching this method. Granted in the youtube video it's a very time consuming process but if you make a big batch and store bottles in the fridge that is very efficient for daily consumption. Going to go to bed bath and beyond tomorrow to buy a
Melitta Pour Over Coffee Cone Brewer & #2 Filter Natural Brown Combo Set which seems like an inexpensive and simple way to start filtering out the powder for my Kratom tea.

I woud suggest you start looking after your digestive health first before adding Kratom into the mix.

I hope you are taking probiotic supplements.

I have used some brands of Kratom that do create a lot of gas (probably something to do with the processing) BUT Kratom should not change the shape of your stool.

Kratom will however, cause constipation by affecting the bowle mu opiate receptors, so this MAY have precipitated some of the symptoms you have experienced.

Is the cleanse working for you?

Also do a search on "digestion issues" on this forum. It is a very informative thread for looking after your intestines while taking kratom.
