How to Master the Kratom Toss and Wash

Kratom toss and Wash technique

When it comes to taking kratom, every enthusiast may have a preferred technique.  The botanical taste may take some getting used to, so it’s a good idea to understand the different formats kratom products can come in and how to ingest them.

One great way to ingest kratom powder comes via the “toss and wash” technique. Toss and wash may sound like a way to do laundry, but it’s actually an excellent method to take kratom, rapidly experience its potential benefits, and avoid its bitter taste.

Let’s take a look at how this method works, its pros and cons, and the different ways to take kratom.

What is the toss and wash?

The toss and wash method refers to a technique popular with kratom enthusiasts that involves tossing a small serving size of kratom powder into your mouth and washing it down with a beverage. 

This method has become popular based on the ease in which it allows kratom users to absorb a product easily, quickly experience kratom’s benefits, and get rid of possible aftertaste with a refreshing glass of water or orange juice, among other drinks.

How this technique helps with taking kratom 

Kratom products are often sold in powder form, like Golden Monk’s Maeng Da Kratom. Even flavorless powder can be difficult to consume without a drink to help your body absorb it quickly. Although many kratom fans may choose to blend powder into a smoothie or stir it into a drink, the toss-and-wash method eliminates the work these methods entail. 

This technique isn’t overly complicated and doesn’t require time-consuming effort. It’s a great, effortless way to take kratom powder amid a busy daily schedule.   

Toss and wash pros and cons

The way people choose to take kratom powder boils down to personal choice — one method isn’t necessarily better than the others. The toss and wash technique is a popular choice because of its efficiency, but it also has drawbacks.

Here are some of the pros of the toss and wash technique:

  • Allows for taste variations: 

It’s hard to change the tastes of kratom gummies or liquid kratom products, but the toss and wash technique allows you to taste your drink of choice rather than the kratom powder.  

  • Cost-effective:

Small serving sizes of kratom powder can help you get the most out of the product, whereas a bottle of capsules can be more expensive and rapidly depleted. 

  • Quick body absorption: 

Kratom powder enters the bloodstream faster than other kratom products, allowing you to experience the results immediately.

The following could be cons of the method:

  • Equipment:

A measuring scale is the only way to measure mg of kratom. This may especially prove problematic for beginners.

  • Taste of powder:

Although drinking your beverage of choice can help mask the taste of kratom powder, the initial bitterness may be off-putting and is an acquired taste. However, kratom gummies are often citrus-flavored, and capsules are tasteless.

  • Easy to take the wrong serving size:

Measuring out the correct serving of kratom powder requires practice and skill. Beginners may find they take too much (or not enough) of the powder and could feel unwanted or no effects.

Tips for the toss and wash technique 

It’s tough to know what foods and drinks work best as mixers for kratom powder, which is why the toss and wash has become such a universal method for ingestion. The technique doesn’t require experimental mixing and can save time. 

Want to know more about this technique? Here are some tips to help master the toss and wash.  

Choose a preferred drink

Before measuring the kratom powder, choose a preferred beverage as a “washer.” For example, orange juice may be a delicious chaser for the powder and can help speed up the body’s absorption process.   

It may be wise to initially avoid thick drinks and carbonation, as they may make it challenging to swallow kratom powder. It’s also a good idea to have a drink pre-poured before measuring out the kratom serving size. Mastering the toss and wash technique is relatively simple, but it may take practice.

Measure the kratom

Follow any suggested serving sizes on the product label, but take experience into account. For example, kratom beginners may want to start with a smaller serving size, observe how their body reacts, and increase to the suggested serving size over time.

After using a measuring scale to ensure the desired serving size, it’s wise to use a spoon or pour the powder into a separate glass before taking it.

Take the kratom  

Once the serving size is measured and placed on a spoon or in a glass, and a pre-poured beverage is on hand, the kratom should be placed on your tongue, rather than swallowed whole. When ready, toss the kratom to the back of the throat.

Drink the beverage

As soon as the kratom is tossed, drink sips of the desired beverage to wash it down. The beverage will help thin out the powder and allow swallowing sans difficulty. Continue to drink until confident that the kratom has been absorbed.

Different kratom products

Kratom powder is a standard choice for enthusiasts and beginners alike. However, no individual kratom user is the same. It’s a good idea to research and explore the variety of kratom products on the market before choosing which is the best option.

Along with kratom powders, capsules, gummies, and liquid extracts are options that may work best for your needs.    

How to purchase safe kratom products

As kratom continues to rise in popularity, a multitude of vendors have cropped up. However, not every kratom brand is reputable. The purity of kratom products is vital to a positive experience, and some brands infuse their products with secret additives. So, how can these sketchy brands be avoided?

A great place to start your research is with the American Kratom Association (AKA), an industry group and leading advocate for kratom education, awareness, and regulation, and an excellent resource for all things kratom. 

The AKA website features Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) Qualified Vendors, including industry leaders such as Golden Monk, who are committed to transparency, thorough testing, and accurate product labeling.

Research any kratom brand before making a purchase, whether online or in a physical location, to ensure the products are safe and high quality.
