Loperamide Gone Wrong (Possible Journal) - Part 37

By girlondrugs · Apr 13, 2015 · ·
  1. Hi Guys!

    So I'm planning on making the Kratom tea tonight. I hope it comes out right.

    Heat the water, let it come to a boil and then add five grams of the powder to to the water for 15 min? Then strain it? Hopefully that's the right way to do it.

    I didn't want to do the toss and wash method because it seems that the tea is more effective.

    Also trying to find out the proper way to measure of the 5 grams seeing as though I don't have a scale. I do have measuring spoons though.

    I'm so excited lol Roaddoggy I would love to hear all your input on Kratom! And how you think I should use it.

    Thank you Ian for your input as well I will DEF be using it because I really don't want my tolerance to build too quickly.

    I don't know if anyone is going to get back to me tonight *im hoping* but if not I hope all is well with you guys!

    Oh and I miss you so much cielochick! She's the one who gave me the name GFOD (Girl Formerly On Drugs) instead of GirlOnDrugs and I want to thank you for that. I use it all the time now.

    How did it go? I find toss and wash quicker, stronger, and certainly less involved than tea. But both work great. Find your dose and toss loperamide from your life forever. :)

    There are a multitude of methods of taking kratom.

    Kratom tea.
    There are 2 main ways to make kratom tea.
    The first is to take your dose and add it to a pot of water and mix it well and boil for 15 minutes, then you can strain out the powder and drink the tea. Some people leave the powder in, it makes no difference.

    The other way is to add your dose of kratom to a cup of boiled water and stir it for a few minutes, let most of the kratom fall to the bottom and drink it, then top it up with more water or just drink the powder if you want to.

    The first method will extract more alkaloids than just steeping the kratom in the cup. If you intend to drink the powder too it makes no difference.

    Tea hits faster than any other method because the alkaloids are already extracted from the powder into the water and can be absorbed faster. Tea kicks in around the 10 minute mark.

    Many people find tea is not as potent as eating the powder itself. It is worth experimenting with different methods to find out what works best for you.

    Toss and Wash

    The basic method involved spooning the kratom powder into your mouth and then drinking some water.
    Some people put the kratom as far back in the mouth as possible then just drink as normal.
    Some, myself included, put the powder into the mouth onto the tongue and use a water bottle with a sports cap and slowly squeeze water in while using the tongue to mix the kratom and water and then swallowing, all the time keeping the water at a slow but steady stream.
    Others Swish and wash which is just another style of the T&W where you put the kratom in your mouth, take a mouthful of water and mix it around and swallow.

    It can take some practice but once you get used to it then it is a very easy method.
    It takes about 20-30 minutes to feel the effects of eating the powder this way.


    Many people find the taste and texture of kratom too bad to toss and wash it or make it into tea so they mix it with something that will mask it.
    I find pesto works great. As it is already a bit gritty you can simply imagine what you are eating is just pesto. I mix the kratom wit just a little over the same amount of pesto. It can then be toss and washed pretty easily.

    Others mix it into juice or sauces. I recommend that you keep the amount of liquids or sauces low because if you find it still tastes horrible and you have used a lot of juice/sauce then you have a lot of eating/drinking to do.
    Thicker drinks mask the texture better, some people use smoothies or yoghurt.
    This way takes as long as toss and washing to kick in, it can be delayed a little longer as the stomach has more work to do with the extra food.


    Capsules are my least favourite method but many people love them.
    They completly mask the taste and texture but they take longer to take affect. It can take up to an hour for the capsules to be dissolved and the kratom broken down and absorbed.
    I do not believe they all break down at the same time in some cases so you are getting a slower onset.

    To speed things up i recommend you do not pack the capsules tight or if you do poke some pin holes into them to speed up their disintegration. Take them with a hot drink like green tea, this will also break them down faster.

    I hope these suggestions help.

    Can't wait to hear how the kratom works. I hope you are feeling better and getting on with your
    new life! I am so excited for you! Yes, let us know how you are getting along as you can.

    I wasn't sure how much loperamide you were taking when you stopped, I'll have to read back, but I am
    right behind you and can't wait to join you being free! I am at five 5 but am getting close to the end of
    this also, whether I jump off or keep tapering!

    Keep up the good spirits, because you are worth it!

    Much Love, GB:)
