A couple times in the last two weeks I took my normal evening kratom dose. I always just mix my smoothie of kratom and water, then chuga lug. I also once in a while will indulge in a cola. A short time after wow kratom hit and was a solid punch. If you have been using kratom long enough you all know what im talking about. Yes I have been using good sized doses lately but shouldn't have hit me like that. Before you ask no I don't bother getting a scale and being exact but I am pretty good at using the same size spoons and measuring. I suppose this could be part of it but I wanted to see if anyone else has had this experience. I did do a little interwebbing and found a horrible sounding mix of kratom, cough syrup, and cola. I have no intention of trying this.... (well maybe the dumba** in me thought about it). Maybe some of you smart people can explain the science of it? Maybe just a fluke and my bad measurements.....?

Sounds like you stumbled upon a useful potentiation tip! I cannot drink cola very often because the bubbles give me acid reflux unless it’s over ice and called, “Diet Pepsi” or “root beer”.

The sugar is also instantly bothersome. I feel a need to brush my teeth after drinking a full sugar version.

I don’t think your measuring is the issue. The carbonation might be. Or the sugar? Or something else in it. What kind of cola EXACTLY please
:-D

I didn't know if I could name drop brands but one day was a Pepsi and another was vanilla Coke. I should also mention neither were iced, nor were they diet. Carbonation? Sugar? I should also mention this happened after a proper meal. I have in the past forgotten effects of empty stomach dosing. Whoops lol.

I will do some more testing and will post any results or lack there of but honestly I don't really enjoy soda or sugary treats. I for the most part kicked a nasty drinking habit about two years ago. I often times don't know what I am supposed to drink as before all i really drank if thirsty was beer or gin. Sorry to get off topic there.

Thanks for posting this! That is a REALLY FUN EXCUSE for trying a cola for a special occasion!
I only drink that stuff when I eat at Village Host pizza for the salad bar lunch special. Sometimes I even SKIP getting pizza because their salad bar just hits the spot! It’s not very elaborate, but it’s fresh. Over here by Nob Hill! Hey Somethingsacred Brandon, you should try it sometime if you get over to this side of town (I hang in East Cliff/Live Oak/Capitola and surrounding areas. Always have - not sure why). They also have a location down in Seascape that is also incredibly fresh. Especially for like $3.99 during 11-1 or so!

Thanks for posting this interesting discovery, Ndgreen1981!

OMG I was working at Chuck E Cheese in 1981! Right by this same pizza place where I like to drink sodas and eat salad. I dressed up in the big mouse costume and danced around the place, scaring children and adults for 2 years! Right there next to Nob Hill!

Hard to believe y’all kids could be my kids or even grandkids now :-O

Soda has citric acid, and is carbonated, so the citric acid could help in freeing up the good stuff from the plant matter, and the carbonation can speed up their delivery into the bloodstream.

I know, right (1981)?!

Spell check. I meant to say MOUSE. But a moose would probably have been more welcome. Children AND adults were often scared of me in that costume until they were used to it.

I aspired to be a Disney character for a while there, as I enjoyed the work. The pizza was awful and I had never met a pizza I didn’t like except that stuff. I’m sure they’ve improved upon the recipe by now in the remaining Chuck E Cheese’s! I was so glad to have a job with my friends and I really enjoyed not working in the kitchen!

There was a pet pig loose in our neighborhood earlier today! Everyone wanted to adopt him once the owners demonstrated how he “sits” for Cheerios! I tried to attach a photo, but my phone photos are always “too big”. The pig wasn’t that big! Very fun holiday distraction at Pleasure Point this afternoon! Oink
