I have had kratom and weed at the same time and my experience was interesting to say the least.
Here's my story.
I used to be a kratom vendor and use kratom daily to manage chronic pain. Kratom by itself made me feel great. My mood would get enhanced and my back pain would completely disappear with red and green strains. White strains would relieve my pain but not completely.
Kratom had me feeling fantastic after years of living in pain. I felt like I was on top of the world and could do anything. Don't confuse this with the invincible crackhead feeling. I never did anything outrageous while on kratom. I just felt great, like the ultimate human being.
Here Comes The Weed
Eventually, I decided that it'd be a good idea to try kratom and weed together since it was my birthday. Due to it being my birthday, a special occasion of sorts, my little brother made these fat cannabis cookies.
They were over-sized gargantuan cookies.
I proceeded to eat the whole cookie. I had already burned 3.5g of kratom, which was my regular burn at the time. If you're new to kratom, you can start with 2g when burning it by itself. If that's not sufficient, bump it up .5g after an hour has passed until you find your sweet spot.
The hardest thing about kratom is getting the amount right.
Back to mixing kratom with cannabis.
Slowly But Surely…
I waited a while but didn't feel anything extraordinary. Edibles take about 45 mins to an hour to sink in so there was no surprise there.
Before I knew it, I was feeling a nice full body high. The high was good and getting stronger as my body continued to digest the cookie.
I was feeling the whole kratom and cannabis thing. It was kind of nice.
I kept getting higher and higher. And higher. And higher!
It seemed like the high was never going to plateau. I was higher than I'd ever been before. Legit. It was crazy. By body was buzzing and it was very enjoyable. Well, to be honest I was a little scared that I was too high.
But in hindsight and with future attempts it was quite pleasant.
The feeling is hard to describe. The best way I could describe it is picture every cell of your body getting a massage. Yeah, amazing!
There was a small downside of sorts. That high was freaking intense. I mean relentless!
I couldn't have acted sober if I tried. If I would have went to work like that, I would have had to pretend I was sick and Uber home. I would not have been able to drive or do much of anything. I was glued to the couch in relax mode.I wasn't going anywhere and I was perfectly fine with that. My birthday fell on the weekend so I didn't have anything I had to do.
Edibles Mixed With Kratom
Edibles last a long time, 6-8 hours and even more sometimes. Having a cookie with kratom made the high last for what seemed like an eternity. When I woke up the next morning I still felt slightly high.
My taste buds were going bananas when I woke up. So I ate breakfast and it was like I could taste every particle in the food. That's how I knew I was still feeling some of the effects. Other than that, I was chill but not feeling a full fledged high.
Eventually I started making edibles mixed with kratom. For these, I used a lot less than the 3.5g of kratom I normally burned. I think that was a little too much because I was not able to function like a normal human being. I was basically a couch potato, albeit a really orgasmic feeling one. Mixing kratom with my edibles were interesting. It definitely potentated the high. The downside is, it made the edibles taste like crap. Kratom is strong and doesn't mix well with most things.
Mixing Weed and Kratom
Nowadays, I burn anywhere from 2-3g of kratom with weed, but only when I'm looking to get really high. Yes, 2g is enough to potentate your weed.
Kratom and cannabis actually both start to set in right around 15 mins. Of course, edibles take a while longer. I have always had kratom first, then cannabis second. Not sure if the order makes a difference, but I thought it'd be worth mentioning.
I continue to mix kratom with my weed to this very day, and probably will forever. Unless there is some groundbreaking research that comes out saying not to, then I will just keep on doing what has been working for me.
Keep in mind that this article is detailing my personal experience and is not a recommendation or medical advice. Consult your doctor before using either of the aforementioned substances, especially combined.
I don't have any medical knowledge of the effects of kratom when combined with weed. I mean, like none. But I have done it too many times to count.
Seriously, proceed with caution if you are planning to experiment with mixing the two. Clear your schedule and make sure you won't be getting behind the wheel of your car or operating anything dangerous. And of course, consult with your physician first.
But most importantly, have your favorite food close by in case you don't feel like getting up off the couch.
