You look back at your life these days and not only have memories of the stupid stuff you "used" to do, but documentation as well. All references to SWIM removed for compliance purposes.
My cousin used a rendition of the “Siebert Method” and spooned approximately 14 grams of Bali powder into a small pot. Boiled with about a cup of water and filtered liquid through coffee filter. Re-boiled filtered material, re-filtered, etc. 2 more times. Boiled collected liquid down to about 1/3 of a cup, added 3 tbsp of white granulated sugar. Poured mixture into Pyrex measuring cup with 1 packet of Knox gelatin, stirred rapidly for 30 seconds. Poured kratom-gelatin mixture on to dinner plate, cooled in refrigerator. Process produced a round fruit rollup-type thing equivalent to 2 doses. Separated fruit rollup thing into two more or less equal portions, kept in refrigerator overnight.
Here’s the problem – my cousin drank a 12-pack and about 6 fl. Oz of vodka, stayed up all night drunk and on other substances, and wasn’t feeling well at 7 am. So my cousin tore a kratom rollup into swallowable pieces and washed about half of them down with more beer. Within minutes my cousin vomited profusely. Not sure what to attribute this to, but there were carrots and greasy pork loin in my cousin’s stomach before taking the kratom rollup. For my cousin kratom has always come back up when s/he has eaten greasy food. My cousin then washed the rest of the pieces down with more beer and even raided about half the other gelatin dose to make up for the dose lost to vomit.
Overall, my cousin thinks the kratom rollup method has promise, but s/he chose the wrong circumstances under which to take it. The gelatin and sugar content do a lot to help one bypass the hideous kratom flavor and the procedure is certainly worth trying again. My cousin has questions about the shelf life of such rollups.
20 minutes into the experience it appears that extra kratom (perhaps 10 grams per dose rather than 6-7) is needed to make the gelatin method as effective as the tea method. My cousin still would like to try it intra-anally so as not to taste it at all. An hour into it and my cousin can barely feel any kratom effects. Perhaps the general consensus is correct; there are many pleasant alkaloids in powdered kratom that do not come out in a boil.
