A friend's grandmother bought a pound of low quality thai leaf (tapering from extract...seems to be harder to get addicted when it's much more difficult to dose) and was stumped as to how to consume the necessary (for her) 15-25 grams. The toss/wash method is bearable for her, but she prefers to take it before her manual labor job, and needs to have food in her stomach. Here are some findings. kratom oatmeal: maybe the easiest on the stomach...lots of oatmeal, water, 15g (this is as much as can reasonably be added to a normal quantity of oatmeal), peanut butter, honey. This is maybe a 5 on a scale of 1-10 in disgustingness...bearable. kratom freezer cookies: melt a stick of butter, add a few tablespoons of sugar, cocoa powder (1TB?), 2-3 TB natural peanut butter...turn off heat, stir in up to 40 grams kratom, a cup of oats...optional coconut shavings (yum). Very tasty...sorry, grandma never measures preciceley, just eyeballs it. 2 doses. Put the mixture in the freezer and break off hunks/eat it like a cookie. Grandma is on a high calorie diet because she has a job breaking down pallets of heavy boxes all day, which is why she takes kratom. kratom granola: same as cookies, only minus the peanut butter, and a little extra oatmeal...optionally add flax meal. Great way to start the day. Same taste as cookies...only a 2 or 3 on the disgustingness scale. kratom "syrup"...add powdered kratom to honey and let it slide down the throat...grandma shys away from this, as it takes about three spoons of honey to eat three spoons of kratom powder, and that's too much sugar for her. other food tips: never, ever toss and wash with an acidic beverage...gives the "orange juice after toothpaste" reaction. Mint milkshakes with kratom are very palatable... grandma only did that once, with extract though. Overall, she finds it wise to take kratom on a medium full stomach...seems to slow it down a little. Efficiency wise, the toss and wash on an empty stomach is best though. Tea, to grandma, is utterly disgusting and a waste of herb.
