    So SWIM got 28gs of Thai Kratom Powder. SWIM wanted to know how many tablespoons would she have to put in a glass that would equate to about 5 or 6 gs. Swim has never ever taken any opiates or kratom before. Neither has SWIM taken any other drug similar to this.

    So SWIM has no tolerance. So please, how many tablespoons does SWIM need, and more importantly, how many G's does SWIM need for a really good euphoric, and sedating effect?

    Also, what juice should SWIM mix it with? Swim only has Orange Juice and water pretty much. Should the water be hot? What should be done?

    SWIM has no measuring device to measure the powder, so please, how many tablespoons is good?

    Have to agree with the poster above .. this topic has been covered many times, just take a little time to read the threads related to the question you have and you will most probably find the information you need there!

    SWIM would also suggest that key to trying anything new is researching the product/chemical/drug before use so maybe a little more research is needed before SWIY takes their Kratom to ensure they are being safe in its use!

    Keep safe! :)

    true OP should have UTFSE,

    Just a comment thought. OP says hes got Thai Kratom. That is not the best type for sedation. OP should consider trying some Bali kratom.

    And as SWIM is typing he would suggest 1st time that OP takes 5g (if its standard leaf and not enhanced or maeng da). 10g is a normal dose. SWIM has scales so he doesnt know how mant spoonfulls but as others have said its been discussed ad nausium.

    He would also suggest OP just tosses and washes the powder i.e chuck the powder in his mouth and wash it down with juice. There is some suggestion that grapefruit juice may potentiate Kratom.

    p.s ALWAYS take on an empty stomach

    I did not understand that thread explaining the teaspoon thing at all.

    I grabbed my sugar bag and it said that 1 tsp equals 4gs of sugar. Can this be roughly the same with Kratom?

    Also, remember, SWIM is a noob and has absolutely no tolerance. Its SWIMS first time, so how should SWIM consume it? Put it in hot water and mix it or something? Or Orange Juice?

    Can Thai Kratom Sedate SWIM even barely at all?

    Yes Thai has some sedating properties, it is a stimulating type which will sedate at higher quantites.

    SWIM's already told SWIY how to take it. Toss and Wash. And yes SWIM would guess 1 heaped teaspoon would be around 5g

    SWIM just weighed out a teaspoon of kratom at 4.7gs.

    SWIM thinks that SWIY would need about 1 and a half to 2 teaspoons for SWIY's desired amount.

    Thank you. SWIM also ordered a batch of Bali Premium Powder for the Sedation.

    As SWIYs is a neebie SWIM recommends a teaspoon of powder in a 500ml bottle of water/juice. Drink slowly and see what happens, dont rush it. Its a good idea to note down details as you go. Soon you will have complete record and be able to judge individual tolerance. Enjoy Yourself!

    Does the water have to be cold or hot? How much is 500mL?

    Daveslaine added 3 Minutes and 27 Seconds later...

    Never mind. Is the taste bitter? Will a no tolerance random noobie get good effects?

    Which one is more preferable by SWIMS, Thai which is energetic, or something like Bali which sedates? Does Bali give a sedation? Is it similar to like 20mg of Hydro?
