Prepare a large glass of either fruit juice or water. Fruit juice is recommended as it is much more effective at clearing powder from the mouth due to higher viscosity, is better at masking the bitter taste and can potentiate the effects of kratom.
Place your measured dosage of kratom onto your tongue. Use caution at this point and don’t place the powder too far back down the throat, or inhale while powder is on your tongue. Inhaling kratom powder is extremely unpleasant and risks damage to the lungs.
Then, with the kratom still on your tongue, fill your mouth with liquid from the glass. Shake your head without swallowing and try to get the liquid to pick up all of the kratom particles. You want to try to swallow everything in one gulp.
Once the powder has detached from your mouth, quickly throw your head backwards and swallow. This should prevent the powder from separating in your mouth and leaving a trail in your throat.
Try to swallow everything at once, but if any powder remains after drinking the liquid, continue to drink until all the powder is gone. If you’re finding your kratom dosage difficult to take all at once, consider taking multiple, smaller doses consecutively.
