@roadkill oh definitely, I have seen one of my sadder looking trees put out new leaf about 2 days ago. None of the others have joined it but still encouraging to see, seeing as last year it's brother died next to it from February.
For some context here are some pics of our trees. Our tallest being around 30 ft tall. Which is something of a feat on it's own as I have seen only 2 other growers that have trees that can rival our size. However we are the only vendor that offers fresh leaf from fully mature kratom trees.
I tried it on several occasions and there is a lot of talk about oils used for cooking like coconut oil, for example. People are having great results by mixing their kratom in an edible oil product. Potentiators do not work for me. But they do for a look folks. Adding turmeric/curcumin with black pepper extract, black oil extract included is something I do daily. Just for the antioxidants if nothing else. My kratom benefits do not increase unless I add some kind of enhanced product or extract into the leaf. Otherwise, good leaf is good leaf is good leaf.
I’m also interested in the dehydrator aspect. Interesting 🧐! Sounds like you’re noticing that midday dose is needed. I find the day’s kratom use can sometimes seem cumulative. So I use half my usual amount during that 2-3PM crash. Hopefully you tried that by now, @Patrickc
@Gary-Hargus Right on man! Thanks for checking out our trees! I'm very proud of them. If you have a chance, check out this video. It is of our automated 3D drone swarm mapping program for our kratom avatar chat Kynto and for documentary purposes. We plan on also rendering this data in Unity so we can run it on the Playstation 4 and 5 vr system, Oculus platform, and google cardboard.
