When it comes to taking kratom, a lot of people get an unpleasant shock when they first try it. This leads to them looking online, and wondering exactly how to toss and wash kratom to avoid that unpleasant shock ever again.
I will you in suspense for a moment, just in case you’ve never taken it, but if you have, then you’ll know what that unpleasant shock is.
So let’s look at exactly what that unpleasant shock is, tell you how to toss and wash kratom, and also tell you how to take kratom in some other easy ways as well.
The Problem With Taking Kratom
So let’s talk about that big problem with taking kratom. When it comes to the best way to take kratom powder, most people will initially just try putting in their mouth and then swallowing it down with water.
What actually happens is you get a mouth full of powder, which makes you choke. On top of that, kratom tastes really bad. It gets all over your tastebuds and tongue, and by the time you wash it down with water, you can be really struggling.
Which is where the phrase toss and wash comes in. It’s a slightly different method for taking kratom, but it’s basically the same as a just described, but with a slightly different strategy.
Kratom Toss And Wash Method
The kratom toss and wash method is the most common way that people take kratom. Even if people don’t get told what it is, they actually learn quickly how to toss and wash kratom naturally.
The basic method is that you open your mouth and literally throw the kratom from the palm of your hand, or a suitable small container, into the back of your mouth, into your throat if possible as much as you can.
You then drink liquid to flush it down your throat as quickly as possible.
This achieves two key things:
- It minimizes the bad taste of the kratom because you are minimizing contact with the taste buds.
- The full hit of kratom is flushed down into your stomach in one go, allowing the best processing of the kratom.
Other Ways To Take Kratom
If you’ve tried to toss and wash kratom, and you still not really loving it, then there are other ways you can try. At the end of the day, the best way to take kratom powder is quite an individual thing, so you could try several methods to find what works for you.
If you don’t want to take dry kratom powder into your mouth, then you could just premix it with liquid. Don’t do this with water, because it creates a foul tasting mess.
In Asia, kratom is mixed in bars with fruit juice, because the fruit juice overpowers the smell of the kratom, and because it’s thicker, it helps to disguise its texture and make it easier to drink.
So you could mix it with some sort of fruit juice and quickly drink it down. I personally recommend mango and peach juices, but orange juice is also popular.
Other people use a thick milkshake. Again, it’s sweet, and it’s thick, which allows the texture of the kratom, and the taste, to be minimized.
The third thing people do is to wrap the kratom up. Some people use cigarette filter papers. They literally just wrap the kratom up in it and swallow it in one go with water. This allows the taste to be avoided, and it hit your stomach in one go, although you may need to do this a couple of times for a larger dose.
Another variation of this is to buy kratom capsules. They are just like normal medicinal capsules, and they again allow you to avoid the taste of the kratom and get an exact dose into your stomach.
The Most Important Thing When Learning How To Take Kratom
The thing is, what actually is important in the way you take kratom, is the type of kratom you take.
It’s not rocket science to understand that if you have very good quality kratom, you will need less of it. So you won’t have so much trauma in swallowing it.
The taste will also not be as bad, and it will be a far more pleasant experience overall.
If you want to avoid the whole thing completely, there are several kratom retailers out there who I trust completely, who sell the most excellent quality kratom in ready-made capsule form.
Sure, these are slightly more expensive than loose powder kratom, but the convenience and controlled dose they offer, plus the fact you can take them anywhere, making them a good alternative solution to toss and wash.
