I am sorry to reply to such an old thread, but I remembered it was in this forum and my friend is complaining about a sore throat the day after using his kratom
. My friend uses kratom about twice a week now for two years. But the hangovers seem to worsen. Part of it might be due to the increased dose, but that is stable for months now.
Lately he noticed a sore throat every time he used kratom. He uses a combination of powder and tea. It is for weeks now after each use, and it has nothing to do with a cold or something. The sore throat dissapeares in a day (after the next sleep). But one time it was bothering him for three days in a row, he tought it would be a cold, but he is sure it wasn't.
He noticed that especially the powder hangs around in his throat for a while, and that this might be the cause, so last three times he flushed his throat after ingesting the powder, and drinking some water. He noticed a decrease in sore throat the next day. But it was still there.
My friend wonders if it really is the powder left in his throat. Because that would say something about the grams he has in his intestines. And he also wonders why it never bothered him, and now suddenly it does. He is already cutting down in his kratom use because he doesn't feel like walking around with such a throat all day.
He also suggested it might be the vendor, so the next batch will be from another vendor, so he can compare.
Anyone has advice on this or remarks, it would be more than welcome!!
