I don’t know where to ask the

I don’t know where to ask the following question:

I got some hirsuta for a kratom break. Took double the amount of my usual kratom dose and became very sick to my stomach within 5 minutes. Thought it was food poisoning from the night before. I took it again today and within 5 minutes started vomiting 🤮. I find nothing Around the Internet about hirsuta doing this to people.  ??

A few people in a MeWe Kratom group were discussing Hirsuta earlier today. Consensus was that it’s easier to get the wobbles from it. Most seemed to take either their normal dose size or a bit less. 

Are you making tea with it?

no tea. T&w. I read all over to take more because it is weaker. I usually use one and a half teaspoons of Kratom during the day and maybe 1 tablespoon at night. I took 1 tablespoon of this junk. Yesterday I didn’t take quite so much, maybe that’s why I actually did not throw up. Wow. I’m scared to death to touch it now though.

Hope it’s not contaminated, and that it’s actually hirsuta as opposed to a Kratom blend or something else. Did it taste different? I’ve heard hirsuta tastes worse than kratom. If it was me I’d ditch it and contact the vendor.

vendor is really popular with you guys.

I had recommended him. If the hirsuta is from Shaun it’s very likely good quality, and probably a dosing issue. Have you reached out to him?

Had a brief chat with Shaun from Fused Flora. 

He's tried around 30 different batches/suppliers. He said Hirsuta has a low ceiling and is very hard to get dialed in. It’s also very course so you should use a scale. Hard to say what amount is best for you, but he takes 3.5 grams, gets wobbles at 3.8 grams, and no effects at 3 grams. It’s a very small window. 

Thanks for posting about this. I’ve been seeing more and more people talking about hirsuta recently, many complaining about issues after taking too much. Hopefully this helps others avoid what you went through. 

And please get a scale, there’s really no way of knowing how much you’re taking without one. Even plain kratom powder varies in density, especially with the new nano grinds becoming popular.  Amazon has a bunch around $10.
