Okay, Kratom tea time !

I have found myself a bit confused. I took an empty tea bag and filled it with a 2.5oz dose of Kratom powder.

Well, after I steeped it and drank it, I realized that it was rather clear...like not “tea” colored hardly at all.

Should I have added more powder since I was making it into a tea ?

But...on the great side...much, much, much easier on tum-tum !

A little help would be appreciated. I am following Laurie’s advice and not ordering anything before I try the tea.

Any suggestions, will moreKratom powder help ? Or, will I need to be changing to leaves which I can steep in my tea ball ?

But I am so optimistic about how much easier it is on my body !

Without the tea bag, I would just have ended up with sludge on the bottom of the mug.

Thanks guys, for sticking with me !

For those who can access Netflix content, A Leaf of Faith can be an eye opener.

katrina!

I just missed you typing..

im glad you found us. even more grateful you found kratom. wait till you try some stuff from our vendors!! I swear you just may dance. even if its just a little hip shake...im happy with that!

I did some caps. took 2 g akuamma, 2 g Incarvillea and 1/2 g white wllow bark. and 1/2 g skullcap to rock me to sleep. no kratom since 1:00 and boy was I walking like the tin man after 12 hrs of a work day on my arthritic joints.

we discuss all herbal reliefs, with kratom being our sugar daddy. or mamma. whichever.

not too obvious im loopy..happy to have you here katrina. welcome!

hey suz!

im glad you aren't going the extract route. it can be horribly expensive, and harder to quit. serious w/ds from what I hear. I take 5-8 g a dose on average. way too much to toss. taking 1-2 g would be sooo much easier. but then your body stops responding to leaf and only wants the extract. not judging, but sounds like a habit I don't want!

when I first started taking kratom I got bad stomach cramps. you are ingesting a good amount of plant material. lots of fiber. BANG to your gut. I split up my dose in 2 by about an hour and my body got used to it. there are plenty of oils that can help with that too. if you like that kind of thing. peppermint is one that comes to mind that's reasonable. or tea tree is all purpose. I have one of those fancy ( expensive ) ones that's a blend but they are usually pretty high. mine came with a pack I got.

but yes, try tea as well. im in CT and its starting to get colder so tea with honey is nice on a cold night. anyone ever mix kratom with kava in tea? makes me curious. although im not sure how much id enjoy it! maybe if I mask it with a vanilla chi or something.

don't be afraid to ask any questions! we tell it like it is. but we are all grown peeps that do what we want regardless! im just glad its helping you! trust me you help welcome in new people with us, you get a special joy of helping another person you don't 'know' lol...

Hi Suz, I am new as well and using doctor prescribed opiates for severe arthritis in my feet,hands ,spine, knees, every where and nerve damage, permanent,lesions on one of the main nerves down my right arm into my hand,the right one. Three surgeries on my arm and hand. Scar tissue debriding of the ulnar nerve and other fun stuff, im still a mess of nerve pain, cant take gabapentin. Plus arthritis, severe everywhere. I have no life. Too much pain to go anywhere. Friends drift away, they cant handle the mess im in. Get tired of seeing their friend deteriorate. Too painful. Drs want to up opiates, pharmacist says no. Through dea efforts i am at 1/3 of dose. Also, pharmacy fills late . With a 30 day prescription filled on the 34th day, what do I do? Go thru detox? Scream in pain, emergency room? He is always with holding on me to make his c2 numbers.
My friend says his sister is using Kratom. Please excuse errors folks, right hand doesnt work and i d ont see a voice promt. A head shop in town has Kratom. I know its the worst but ive run out of time. So i get Mang da red. and it works! Holy mother Mary, it works on the withdrawl and on the pain. I have no idea how to use it or dosage. I have not been out of pain for over a year, even with the opiates but the Kratom did it. I am stunned. Its like a holy miracle happened.

Ive been prescribed Fentanal patches and, methadone with oxycodone for break through. This seems like lots of meds but they dontwork enough on the pain. They helpbut im always in pain. Until now. The plants mother nature puts on this earth are miraculous. What an amazing thing. And yes my scripts got filled and im still usin the Kratom and its working fine. Thank you to all you lovely people for sharing your experiernce.

I can't wait to hear how tea works for you., Suz! The potential for relief is still excellent! If you do find the results helpful, let us help you order products because a crushed leaf product will be more suitable. Point being, hold off on shopping while tea is steeping.

Some folks have more gut trouble than others when it comes to kratom ... I remember only having some slight issues in the beginning my regimen... and haven’t had any problems since ... but we all are different and some might have continued digestive issues ...

This issue may pass as your body becomes accustomed to kratom, eat a good amount of veggies & salad, stay hydrated ... hope that the discomfort passes sooner than not !!... if not, you can try the tea method like Laurie mentioned ...

It’s not for everyone but I wouldn’t throw in the towel just yet!! Don’t worry about asking questions .. that’s one of the reasons this community exists ... to help eachother out B-)

Thinking good thoughts and sending good vibes your way Suz !! (L) (L) :-bd >:D
Life is better with kratom !

I did not think you’d be angry, I just know I’ve asked a lot of questions and that must be trying for everyone to have to keep answering.

I certainly am an ask first person. Because of that, I’m not going to try the extract. Just too risky in my opinion.

You guys have been more than wonderful.

I am going to try to make tea with the Kratom, as I think it might go down better than the capsules.

I’ve never really had digestive issues, so that’s why I thought the capsules might be the problem.

I still think the benefits outweigh the negatives.

Thanks for being so kind and understanding !
