Kratom vs Kava Kava?
    #8533356 - 06/17/08 01:28 PM (6 years, 1 month ago)

Ive been doing some research around here and online. Is Kratom and Kava Kava similar? I was thinking about trying it, since I cant smoke weed, or any drug, due to some legal issues.

Which would you suggest to take? Why?
How are they each prepared/whats the best way to prepare them for their fullest potential?
What are the differences between the two?

Thanks!

Kava is a muscle relaxer which inhibits MAO-B and inhibits the reuptake of noradrenaline. Kratom is an opioid agonist. They aren't really comparable in terms of effects. Kratom is stimulating at low doses and relaxing and sedating in higher doses. I've used kava a couple of times. Nice and relaxing. I enjoyed it. Never done kratom. I'd imagine that a combination of the two could be quite relaxing and moderately euphoric.

if your looking for something to trip on I'd go with HWBR seeds. If you want an opiate like effect go with kratom. Kava is nice to take if you have insomnia to relax. I remember when it was easily obtainable OTC I haven't seen in in stores for quite sometime. shit i remember back in 1996 when codeine was over the counter (i swear) i had a whole bottle no shit!!

I'd compare Kava to benzos and Kratom to opiates; two very different effect profiles. I like Kava for chilling out, but it's nowhere near as powerful as Kratom. Don't underestimate Kratom, it can give you a real strong nod.

I would suggest at least trying both. In a way it's like asking someone to describe the differences between coffee and beer.

I started with Kava Kava by making some smoothies out of it. It's like your mind is drunk but you body is functioning perfectly. I would put four spoon fulls into a blender with soy milk, ice, a banana and any other fruit available. I've tried making teas but with no success.

Kratom feels like an opiate, but without the stomach ache afterward. It takes about an hour to kick in and depending on the dose the effects vary I've noticed. I usually put 2g in a cup, fill with water, drink water as fast as I can and repeat this until there is no more powder in the cup. Usually takes 3-4 cups of water (12oz). This is just my current method and I've only done Kratom and handful of times. I'm interested in finding something new.

This doesn't benefit you, but I've found that if I smoke while taking either one the effects are intensified. This is usually expected.

Good luck.

I use the chai mix for the Kava and the 15x of Kratom. I would like to try some of the other products still.

kratom by far is better
u need like 2 ounces of kava to get an equivalent high off of 10g of kratom
they are different highs obviously but kratom is better in everyway
high, dose, preperation, price, easy to take

I agree that Kratom is better. Kava is something I would drink before going to class just to feel the relaxing effects. I usually save the Kratom for rainy day fun.
