It is difficult to get fresh leaves of kratom in America. Most vendors sell kratom in the form of powder, capsules, or extract. You can also get a kratom shot and gummies. However, if you ever visit any of the native kratom lands, viz; Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Borneo, or Bali, you must search for fresh kratom leaves.
Chewing kratom leaves
Chewing raw kratom leaves can be one of the most enriching experiences of your life. A lot is said and written about this marvelous herb. Coming face to face with real kratom and tasting its true bitterness is a unique experience.
However, chewing fresh leaves of kratom is for the brave-hearted, thanks to the herb’s bitter taste. You need to have strong willpower to continue chewing despite tasting the bitterness.
If you are a beginner and not much sure whether you can tolerate the bitterness, try Maeng Da Liquid Kratom Extract Shot. This too has a tinge of bitterness to it as it is a concentrated extract of alkaloids; however, you quickly gulp down the shot in seconds. This is better than chewing the leaves slowly and “terrorizing” your tastebuds with bitterness.
Grind leaves to make fresh powder
If chewing leaves is not your cup of tea, neither is gulping pure extract, then grind the leaves to make a fine powder. Dissolve this powder in water, although kratom does not fully dissolve in liquid.
Drink this “kratom juice.” Either drink it on an empty stomach as hundreds of users do, or take a light meal before you consume this herb.
Powder too will make you taste the bitterness of this herb, but the taste gets diluted.
In case you are in no mood to do all the grinding and powdering, simply search “kratom shop near me” and order a pack of powdered kratom of any strain you like.
Crush leaves to brew kratom tea
How about putting your feet up and sipping some freshly brewed kratom tea? You can mix a few drops of fresh lime juice and some honey to add to the flavor. A great way to unwind on a tropical evening in Indonesia or Thailand!
For the tea, you can crush fresh kratom leaves. Just a single teaspoon is enough to make 4 cups of tea. Boil some water and let it cool for half a minute. Then pour this hot water over the crushed leaves. Let it steep for 10-15 minutes. Strain the tea and add sugar/honey/lemon drops as per your taste.
Instead of crushing the leaves, you can also use whole leaves to make kratom tea.
This is a great way to use kratom for mood. Sip the tea, close your eyes, and let the calmness sweep over you.
These are a few ways you can use fresh kratom leaves. The next time you visit any of the tropical countries where they grow kratom, make sure you try some fresh kratom. And for those who are not going anywhere outside America, find licensed vendors near you and enjoy the fabulous kratom products. Kratom in Nevada is available through GMP-certified vendors online.
