kratom and sore throat

Does anyone experience this? SWIM has had ongoing throat issues that come and go, and they noticed it the other morning after drinking kratom tea... SWIM figured it could be from smoking, but realized they hadn't smoked many cigarettes at all that day. It has been a sore feeling similar to a common cold, but they also have this cool, menthol-like feelinig in the back of their throat. SWIM has noticed their mouth and throat get slightly numb when drinking the tea.

SWIM is using about 1-20grams of dried leaves in tea, they don't think it's a bacteria from the source as this should be killed in the boiling water. SWIM has searched online and heard multiple complaints from users, has anyone here experienced anything like this?

Re: kratom and sore throat

The effects came the morning AFTER the night of drinking kratom tea... sorry I can't figure out how to edit.

Re: kratom and sore throat

SWIM never linked these together, SWIM never felt a sore throat from Kratom use and SWIM uses every day, however thats not to seuggest SWIY is wrong. Kratom produces many different effects in people.

Re: kratom and sore throat

My friends have never had a soar throat from Kratom, in fact they have never had any lingering effects.

Re: kratom and sore throat

SWIM has found that it wasn't kratom, but an allergic reaction from avocado! He noticed the same throat feeling while munching on some fresh avocado at work... tight feeling in throat, and menthol-like feeling while breathing. The throat pain may have been due to a cold.

Re: kratom and sore throat

Swim uses Kratom approx twice a week and has noticed a mildly sore throat during some stage of the experience more times than not lately. It seems to be there for a bit then its gone.

He wonders if it could be from some kind of contaminant in the Kratom.

Re: kratom and sore throat

SWIM thinks kratom, like opiates.. effects the immune system. Is SWIY a smoker? SWIM smokes like a chimney on kratom... that combined with a cold cold be the issue.

Re: kratom and sore throat

Funnily enough Swim is full of the flu this week and has used Kratom to successfully get rid of the sore throat and many of the other symptoms.

Re: kratom and sore throat

it is powdered leaf with extra alkaloids added in:

"Finely powdered, it has been carefully standardized and enhanced with a generous helping of ultra-pure Kratom alkaloids - 1250 mg / 25 g - for astonishing potency and convenience. This enhanced leaf has been custom crafted by a well-know vendor using an exacting process developed after months of research."

Re: kratom and sore throat

I am sorry to reply to such an old thread, but I remembered it was in this forum and my friend is complaining about a sore throat the day after using his kratom. My friend uses kratom about twice a week now for two years. But the hangovers seem to worsen. Part of it might be due to the increased dose, but that is stable for months now.
Lately he noticed a sore throat every time he used kratom. He uses a combination of powder and tea. It is for weeks now after each use, and it has nothing to do with a cold or something. The sore throat dissapeares in a day (after the next sleep). But one time it was bothering him for three days in a row, he tought it would be a cold, but he is sure it wasn't.
He noticed that especially the powder hangs around in his throat for a while, and that this might be the cause, so last three times he flushed his throat after ingesting the powder, and drinking some water. He noticed a decrease in sore throat the next day. But it was still there.

My friend wonders if it really is the powder left in his throat. Because that would say something about the grams he has in his intestines. And he also wonders why it never bothered him, and now suddenly it does. He is already cutting down in his kratom use because he doesn't feel like walking around with such a throat all day.
He also suggested it might be the vendor, so the next batch will be from another vendor, so he can compare.

Anyone has advice on this or remarks, it would be more than welcome!!

Re: kratom and sore throat

My ferret experiences a sore throat sometimes, but it's generally from the powder being swallowed poorly and it scraping along the throat tissues. Could this be the case?

No, my friend says it is unlikely it is the scraping. Some foodparticles he swallows are bigger and sharper and also stick around in his throat sometimes. He suspects the powder particles irritate his throat chemically (something that diffuses out of the particles in his throat). Then flushing quickly after swallowing will help.

But of course it is hard to know which is true.

Re: kratom and sore throat

Perhaps the sore throat is caused not by Kratom, but by other Sth East Asian floor scrapings, eg: Birdshit?

Swim has not found this problem on newer batches, so has put it down to a bad or contaminated batch.

My ferret supposed her post was kinda silly and would have been quite obvious to your friend, but she said it couldn't hurt to mention. Silly ferret.

Swim has not found this problem on newer batches, so has put it down to a bad or contaminated batch.
So Swiy has experienced it on older batches?

The batch my friend is on lately is a batch that he received a few months ago. It was a pretty big amount in a ziplock-bag that is opened a lot.

My friend also has a newer batch waiting for the old one to be finished. I will advice him to try the new batch to see if it makes a difference. I will keep you guys informed about this.

You think that there might be birdshit in kratom?? It must have been a shitload then to cause this much problems in my friends poor throat.

Re: kratom and sore throat

swim uses kratom a couple of times a month, and also doesnt experience this correlation. swim gets soar throats, but not when swim had taken kratom. swim think theyre do to living in a dorm with dry air and many other people.

Re: kratom and sore throat

Alfa has noticed this recently. He says that previously he had put it down to smoking, but he recently quit, and noticed that his throat problems still flare up after the injestion of kratom.

He's starting to think that guzzling grainy gritty clumpy powder might not be so great for the throat. He tried smoking again and funnily enough it didn't really add to the irritation.
