is this like kratom? i've always been curious about kratom but then i open the thread and every post is like "it's been 5 hours since i've had my last kratom and now i'm vomiting blood" and i think "maybe not"

I think it's better than kratom but also used for totally different purposes

Kratom has very minimal effect for me and the trade-off is feeling very sad the first day I don't use it

Like people are always all "when I'm on kratom I can clean my whole house and go for a 2 hour jog" and yeah I get a minor energy boost but nothing more than some ephedrine

this is like the only thing I do in the evening now

I like this brand https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00TX2WJUA

I was using cheese cloth for a while but eventually bought like an actual reusable kava strainer thing and its so much easier

There are Kava bars all over town. You should see the low lifes who hang out at a kava bar...

It makes your mouth numb and you feel kind of drunk. Apparently it’s a reverse tolerance thing, so you won’t feel much the first few times you try it. Never really got into regular trips to the kava bar so can’t tell you if that’s true.

it feels like a mild benzo. it isn't addictive, I know this because I can get addicted to anything possible that can be. but no yeah I can use kava for two weeks and then just stop and feel totally fine

I don't think it's addictive

I've always likened it to Xanax it makes you zone out and talk more

Some people get an energy boost and I do too but it's not enough to really highlight

Helps that it tastes like shit.

There’s a few joints called Kavasutra around town. Iirc they all proudly flew Ron Paul flags out front in 2012.

I guess, it just kinda tastes earthy. I don't mind it. kratom is way more disgusting, I gagged rn just thinking about toss & washing

Kratom is definitely worse. A lot of the kava bars sell these disgusting kratom cocktails that I find undrinkable.

the kava bar in Williamsburg is pretty chill. I went in once randomly and it was empty besides the bartender, who was sitting at the bar eating ramen and watching a doc on burroughs. he hooked me up though
