    My ferret has only used Kratom once and it was just an ounce of Bali power.
    He started making tea with it as he would with his pods(stove-top espresso machine), but later in the day he just started Tossing & Washing. He seemed to have a good day and didn't even need to make any pod tea that day. The problem may have been taking around a dozen Some 350mg through the course of the day. He recently just ordered a few onces of Bali powder and an ounce of Maeng Da Kratom Powder.
    And wanted to make sure the espresso machine which works wonders with his pod tea would be the way to go with this next Kratom batch or just stick to T&W.
    Thanks fo any advice on the subject, my ferret appreciates it.:vibes:

    I have tried using coffee machines in the past but finds that a 20 minute boil seems to extract more alkaloids.
    Swim usually lets his leaf/powder soak in water with lime juice in the freezer until it starts to freeze then he puts it into a pot and brings it to a boil and then strains and drinks.

    Some people prefer to Toss & Wash, both methods have their benefits.
    T&W probably utilises more alkaloids and it seems to last longer, but I find the initial Euphoria is much stronger when it is taken as a tea, probably due to the alkaloids being absorbed faster due to them already being extracted into water.

    If You could replace their pod use for Kratom use they could find this very beneficial. Many people have successfully used Kratom to replace harsher opiate use, and although it might be swapping addictions Kratom is definitely less damaging.
