That’s so interesting. I have not ever been able to potentiate kratom with ANY other substance and I’ve tried a bunch over the years. My metabolism just refuses to respond to anything WITH kratom. So I just have whatever I’m having. After about 3 or 4 bites of food with carbohydrates, the kratom benefits are gone forever. A good hour of pain after eating, having waited 20-30 minutes to start over. Luckily it eventually helps again, but then I’m hungry again, lol (sarcasm and humor included here. I don’t always eat something every hour).
But. I absolutely recommend tea, but it’s not easy to get a good tea. In my metabolism, tea is more effective for pain than powder IN MOST CASES. I buy it by the case and each bottle has 1-2 servings, but it’s $7.50 a bottle! I use them sparingly, so I’m sure that’s part of why I find the tea so helpful.
I was going to meet a friend but they were delayed. I chewed three leaves at 930, but knew I had five hours. I made some tea, but didn't like the flavor. I added dark chocolate to it which made it palatable. I think it gave me an extra hour, because around 3:30 I felt the pain start. By the time I got home I could barely walk.
No results on the citrus juice yet. I haven't really noticed a difference in the efficiency.
