How to make Kratom powder taste better?

Though it seems impossible, there are some simple ways you can hide the herbal taste of Kratom. Some users prefer capsules, as it is a convenient way to avoid the taste and get the job done. Kratom capsules are Kratom powders in gelatin capsules. The capsules reach your gut and dissolve, so capsules take some time to start working.

Mixing your Kratom powder with acidic fruit juice is a well-known way to take your daily dose of the drug. The acids help break down the alkaloids, so you can feel the herb working faster. The acids also enhance the overall effect. The most popular choice is to add the drug with orange juice. Squeeze 3-4 oranges and add one dose of your favorite strain with it. The mixture creates a unique taste though you may taste some earthy flavors. You can also use lemon juice or lemonade for the process. Lemonades are less acidic but do the job well. If you are using lemon juice, add some sugar or honey to tone it down.

  • Mix it with smoothies:

A glass of smoothie is always fun and tasty. Mixing some Kratom powder with it will enhance its health benefits and hide the bitter taste of the drug as well. Here are some preferred smoothie recipes for you to try.
