Hello all! First time poster here, long time kratom user.

My question is about ways to "activate" kratom once it's been taken. I almost always take capsules instead of straight powder, and I've found that unless I eat or drink something, I won't feel the effects of the kratom. Unfortunately, I started drinking Coke as a way to get the digestion (I guess?) started. Now for years I've been drinking upwards of 4 cokes a day, which is not good. What I like about the coke is that it seems to activate and maintain the kratom effects, probably because of the caffeine (I also drink coffee with my morning kratom). This could also just be a placebo effect after years of associating drinking coke with the positive effects of kratom, I'm not sure.

Anyway, I'm looking to start a keto diet with my wife (the years of cokes are finally catching up with me :D), so cokes are off the table. I could drink diet coke, but I'd rather get away from it completely while I'm motivated. I've gone through a few cycles of drinking grapefruit/orange juice mixed with club soda as an alternative, but those juices aren't compatible with the diet either.

Long story short, does anybody have any recommendations for what I can replace the coke with? I'd like to avoid eating anything to keep my stomach empty, and I'd love it if I can keep the effects sustained for a while like I get with coke. Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Derek

I mix my kratom with powder matcha green tea and sweetener. Sometimes I drink it hot and sometimes cold. It does seem to work fine. At night I mix kratom with a powdered magnesium drink such as calm.

Hello welcome to the forum.
My suggestions
Club soda or seltzer(add lemon or lime juice)
Take a pin and poke holes in your capsules.
If you are going to start a keto diet buy coconut oil. A half teaspoon is usually enough on an empty stomach right after you take the kratom, It will potentiate the kratom

Good luck let us know your results

Nice to meet you Derik!!

Maybe a nice coke substitute... kombucha !! Probiotic .. bubbles(carbonation)... and caffeine!!

Here’s something that could be helpful as well, naturalnffod store here in Santa Cruz carries it .. I’m sure you could order it online though RAWake “vegan ghee”

I also on occasion take the same mag supplement as gman.. feels effective in potentiating Kratom more times than not !!

Be good Derik , hope to see you here more !!

Brandon

heey derik!

glad you found us. wow keto.. you brave soul! the 'fancy' refrigerated juices now have low sugar light options. that really aren't bad. you can mix that with club soda or tonic. I also add essential oils. weird I know but they even make turmeric, black pepper, orange, grapefruit ect. all have some kind of health benefit. and mixed with kratom they make each other taste better!

but I love coconut oil as well. almost seems like a treat. walnut and almond oil are nice too on occasion if you want to mix it up.

or out in left field.. make a frappe or shake with the kratom. almond, soy, hemp milk, any other seeds, nuts, fruits. make it your own. I just make a banana chocolate with peanuts and chocolate protein powder. Bennis even started with a café blend which has about 5% coffee in it. masks the flavor nicely.

anyways, good luck! and happy to have you here!

My husband is on the the same diet. He mixes his powder with bullet proof coffee and it hides the bitter taste of kratom. You could always use the sugar free flavor packets too and mixing them with your kratom and water.

I cycle from coffee a portion of the year and mate...
I grate some ginger and turmeric root and and simmer for a few minutes... make the base tea with that ... add the Yerba mate.. some 1/2&1/2... maple syrup... and of needing extra boost guarana!! Fire !!!

It’s like a chai type set up ... yum yum get some lol!!

As far as my dose of Kratom goes .. 90% of the time it’s in GFJ, the other times it’s good ole toss and wash ... I’ve gotten pretty darn good at it !

Happy new year :-P B-) (L)
