Greetings, I absolutely think this site is the tits! I feel it's a great way for those of us interested in experimenting with drugs, to do so in a safe and well informed manner. On top of that the open-minded community is always there to lend some extra support and answer any questions that I might have! So, I'm writing this in hopes that a future visitor will find the answers they're looking for or even prevent someone from wasting they're time or money. Subject: 25 year old male weighing approximately 180 lbs (81kg). Recent experiences with hydrocodone and poppy seed tea around twice a week; most recently 1 month ago. Last meal was 4 hours ago. Product: Thai Kratom Mitragyna speciosa purchased from a local headshop in Texas. Silver packaging with three leaves on the front. Package contains 16 large capsules, each containing ~0.5 grams of ground up leaves. Doses & Effects: 11:00 pm - 4 grams 8 capsules were broken apart and the contents of each capsule was dumped into a water glass. Approximately 300ml of room temperature water was added into the glass along with the grounds. Glass was stirred then digested. No unpleasant taste, similar to tea. 12:15 am - 2 grams As of 12:15 am, there are no noticeable effects. Another 2 grams of grounds were digested via the same method as above at 12:15 am. 1:00 am - 2 grams 3:00 am - As of 3:00 am, some subtle effects were noticed. A pleasant calm and relaxed disposition were noticed. Fell in and out of sleep throughout the night, similar to what is experienced with opiates. Conclusion: While the product purchased was nice, the effects were only that of a mood enhancement and not what I was looking for. I will try to find a reputable source online; which seeing as how source discussion is not allowed, I fear is more easily said than done.
