    Hi
    SWIM read up on Kratom alot and decided to buy 2g of 15x Powder from my regular head shop

    I was advised to Either make up with hot water or T&W, SWIM decided to T&W, after 30 mins started to feel tired, then nausea set it, decided to lie down to help nause, which wasn't unbearble, but not wasn't pleasant.

    After a few hours of feeling like this and hardly being able to keep eyes open SWIM fell asleep and slept on and off for 2 days!!

    I am now awake, but feels like they have a sleeping tablet hangover. I had NO pleasant feelings from the Kratom at all.

    P.S.. I have no experience with opiates.

    Any thoughts??

    Please read this guide to buying kratom https://drugs-forum.com/threads/200101

    Head shops are to be avoided for several reasons.

    15X and similiar products should be avoided.

    Basically you bought a terrible product from a terrible source. The guide should help you know what to avoid in future.
    Stick with plain kratom leaf/powder and avoid extracts.

    With no prior opiate experience, jumping into kratom extracts probably wasn't the best move. Too much of any opioid can be a pretty miserable, drawn-out experience.

    That said, as ian suggests, head-shop-derived extracts - and kratom extracts in general - are fairly unreliable, as they can easily be adulterated with synthetic compounds. I'm not suggesting your long hangover is evidence of an adulterant - but it's just something you need to consider should you continue to explore this landscape.
