Did you know that you can also smoke kratom? Although most people take kratom by mixing it with food and beverages, making kratom tea, or by ingesting kratom capsules, there are some who prefer to smoke crushed kratom leaves. Find out how below.
How To Smoke Kratom: 7 Simple Steps To Follow
Step 1: Crush Kratom Leaves
Crush the dried kratom leaves using your bare hands. You may also use a pepper mill, blender, or food processor. If you don’t want to prepare your own kratom powder, make sure to purchase from reliable vendors like Kratom-K, the leading retailer of kratom in the US.
Step 2: Measure
One of the disadvantages of smoking kratom is that it requires a high kratom dosage to achieve minimal effects. The recommended measurement is 15 to 20 grams of kratom per joint. This is equivalent to the same effects as taking 2 grams of kratom orally.
Step 3: Place On Paper
After measuring, lay the kratom powder on a piece of paper. Use thin rice or wheat paper that may be purchased in tobacco stores. Carefully place the crushed kratom leaves on the paper and make sure to distribute it evenly. Don’t overload the paper with the crushed leaves, but make sure the paper is filled.
Step 4: Prepare a Filter
Before rolling the joint, you may add a filter similar to that of a cigarette. You can buy a pre-made joint filter or you can make your own with a thin piece of cardboard. Although this step is optional, adding a joint filter is recommended. This keeps the joint intact and allows for better airflow.
Step 5: Roll Into Shape
After loading the crushed kratom leaves and adding the filter, you are now ready to roll the joint into shape. Press down carefully while rolling to make sure that the leaves stay intact.
Step 6: Seal
Pack the end of the joint with a pen or a small stick before sealing to ensure that the leaves are firmly compressed inside. Fold the excess paper and tuck it into the joint. If you are saving the joint for later, seal it by twisting the tip.
Step 7: Light Up
The final product should be akin to a tobacco stick. It should also not be too tight or loose. After achieving the desired shape and firmness, light up and smoke the crushed kratom leaves.
These are the seven steps on how to smoke kratom. This article suggests using crushed kratom leaves for the joint, but another option is smoking kratom extract. Others also prefer smoking kratom using resin foil or a vape. Whatever your preference is, make sure not to overdo it as excessive smoking may potentially damage the lungs and cause serious respiratory ailments.
