If you’re a fan of kratom or have been interested in trying it out, chances are you’ve heard (or know) all about kratom’s unique flavor!
If you’ve never tried kratom before you’re probably wondering what does kratom taste like? We’re going to be totally honest here- kratom has a strong flavor, to put it mildly. Some people aren’t bothered by what kratom tastes like, while others find the flavor very off-putting, and stick to taking kratom capsules because of it.
So What Does Kratom Taste Like?
The best way we can describe the flavor of kratom:
Kratom tastes a lot like tea leaves that have steeped WAY longer than usual. If herbal, grassy flavors don’t bother you, chances are you might not mind kratom too much- but often people find the flavor hard to deal with at first. But don’t worry! There are a few easy things you can do to help mask the flavor of kratom.
How To Make Kratom Taste Good
One of the most popular ways of taking kratom is by mixing it with acidic juice- not only does this help bre
ak down the alkaloids in kratom, it also helps mask that strong flavor!
What does breaking down kratom alkaloids do?
- Kratom is absorbed more quickly, therefore effects are felt faster
- Because it makes it easier for your body to process the alkaloids, the effects feel stronger as well
Some of the most popular juices to mix kratom with are –
Orange juice: This is perhaps the standard mixer for kratom lovers. Orange juice is acidic enough to make the kratom powder kick in a bit quicker & with more potency, while the flavor is strong enough to make it taste better.
Lemonade: A bit less popular, but tasty all the same! Lemonade (not lemon juice) is sometimes less acidic than orange juice so it may break down the alkaloids less effectively, but it does a good job of masking the flavor.
Lemon juice: Straight up lemon juice, not lemonade, is highly acidic and will break down alkaloids & hide kratom’s flavor- but be warned, it is a pretty crazy taste! Try mixing with some sugar and a splash of water to mellow it out.
Honorable mentions: Cranberry juice, apple juice
