Advice please...

Two days ago made my first tea. Steeped 2g in middle of day to try. Felt sedated. Was awesome just what I want.

Last night put 2.5g in orange juice at 9pm. Didn’t fell much of anything this time.
Ideas????

Well there could be many factors that play into while one time you had better results than the other, one of them is the form you took it in… Some feel that when you drink tea your body can of absorb the alkaloids faster and more efficient… The other is did you take your dose on an empty stomach on a full stomach or…? Even when you have the most mindful of prep to get the best out of it…There’s no guarantee that the next dose will be just like the previous one, just my thoughts! Others might have some other ideas… Maybe for your body tea is the best method for taking kratom??

I actually put 2.5 g of powder in 500 ml of orange juice. It wasn’t in pills. It was at 9 pm so was an empty stomach.

Try again making it in a tea the next time.

I handle the two doses of 2 g the first time and 2.5 the second. Can I increase to 3 or 4 g now? I don’t get any side effects. I’m really trying for sedation to ease into sleep.
Oh if I prepare a hot teA amd let it cool, is that ok?

I know from my personal chemistry that I need a bigger dose when taking red compared to other “colors”... also .. when taking for sedation , a slightly higher dose will be more on the relaxing spectrum versus a smaller one which will tend to be more stimulating... it’s not carved in stone . but that’s generally how it works out ... and some varieties tend to be more relaxing or stimulating as a signature trait !

Totally fine making tea and letting it cool down and to store for a later time ... tea can keep in the fridge for a while ... but probably good to drink it within 5 days ... if using some citric acid / vitamin c ... could last longer ... also you could freeze it and thaw in advance or heat up in a pan when wanting to take a dose ..

I have not yet tried tea. And I haven't yet had the experience of Kratom being sedating.
I would love for it to be, as insomnia is an off and on issue with me. And when i don't get my sleep, I am miserable.

I have tried scullcap with mixed results. Aside from the fact that I find it slimy and nasty, I am not sure it really works for me. I had some cbd that I got in the Netherlands. I tried it a few times with no results. However, I tried breaking the gel capsule and holding it in my mouth and it seemed to work fine. I suspect that with cbd, that under the tongue thing may be needed, at least for me.

I am still working on a good knock out for the night blend of herbs.

I hear you ! I too am seeking that right blend. That’s why I’m trying Red Bali tea. Got up to3.5 g I tea but was not what I was hoping for. Doubt it I can increase that dose as I had nausea and bad bitter taste the next day ALL DAY.

Interesting about CBD under ur tongue vs capsules.
How much under your tongue?

What dose of scullcap did you try?
