@Julieanne-Marie-Klinger Hamilton is such an interesting trail blazer of the life of crash test dummy activities I’m always doing with different types of herbs and even different strains of kratom from different vendors, since they are all so different (except for the ones sharing tons of powder, all of which are similar and helpful)...
Thanks for posting the photo. It looks a lot like Hamilton, but I haven’t seen his series in months
<p>@will</p><p>Just watched show last night from 2017 on Hulu, Hamilton’s Pharmacopeia, About Kratom. Showed a guy chewing A leaf for a few secs and spitting out. Was asked why such a short time, but I don’t think he answered. Just smiled. <br /><img width="2557" height="1438" /><br /></p>
Its because the 7hydroxy Mitragynine is very water soluble in the mouth. The regular mitragynine is in 'base' form, and 'lipid soluble'. That means it's better dissolved into an oily or organic solvent, not the chemistry encountered in the human mouth. The lemon's citric acid in tea helps to convert insoluble mitragynines into water soluble ones. The chemistry is beyond even this pyro.
