Swim arrived home today after a greuling (s.p?) day of classes and was pleasantly surprised upon arrival due to seeing a package peering out from underneath the door, on closer inspection it appeared to be of his suppliers "new kratom 15x Standardised batch". Being his first time trying this substance, first thing I did was put a little bit on his finger to get a taste for it, and much to his surprise it tastes exactly like a chinese medicine I used to take for his bowels, so call him crazy but he likes the taste of kratom quite a bit. Yay.. now I has no need to find techniques to mask the taste. 3:30 P.M - Swim ingests approx 1 gram of the 4 grams he recieved. He threw the powder in his mouth and followed up with a sip of pepsi to get it all down to tummy land. 3:40 P.m - A very strong sedating / warm opiate feel begins to creep up swim from the inside out, slowly up the spine.. to the eyes.. much like one would attribute to taking approx a 250mg dose of codeine. 3:50 P.M - A small bowl of marijuana (just enough so the kratom doesn't fall through the screen) is mixed with roughly the same of kratom and smoked. Swim think's it's too early to tell at this point wether it had an effect due to the unexpected rapid onset of the oral kratom. However swim notes the substance smoked tastes very similar to the salvia extract he tried years back. 4:20 P.M - I am feeling very very nice at the moment. He puts the experience on par if not ahead of a healty dose of codeine. The Euphoria is amazing, there's no open eyed hallucinations but closed eye visuals are out of this world. I feel as if he can see through his eye lids. I am in love with kratom. 4:30 P.M - Swim ingests another 1/2 gram or so of extract in the same manner as before and smokes a manly bowl of weed this time followed by a cigarette. I am in kratom paradise. Talk about syngergy.. and swim fails to note the extreme bitterness that most users comment on. Oh and itchy! 5:00 P.M - Yes.. Oh yes... Swim cannot believe he let this wonderful substance elude him for all these years. But on the other hand he is very glad he did,as by now he would probably have quite the tolerance. All in all this has been the most pleasant experiences he has had in quite some time. 6:00 P.M - All is still well.. extremely. Swim even has a super appetite he cannot seem to satiate. Food tastes absolutely amazing and to boot I am still feeling very sedated @ 2.5 hrs after ingestion. So that's that. Kratom is the real deal. Being very pleased with the supplier he used and confident that this is a true or very darn close to 15x extract (considering I took just over what looked like 1.5 grams and got full effects off the first dosage alone) swim just placed an order. Overall it works out to 3$ for a night of fun for swim via the 15x @ quantity.
