What is toss and wash?
This is a method of taking Kratom that is similar to chugging an unpleasant substance such as alcohol or medicine. The toss and wash method was invented to help individuals who dislike swallowing pills.
If you don’t want to take Kratom with your food or smoothie, this method could be a great way for you to enjoy what you love.
But why was it referred to as “toss and wash?”
The term comes from the action of placing the substance (tossing) on your tongue, and then quickly washing it down with water.
How to toss and wash?
It is as simple as it sounds. Once you place the substance on your tongue, take some water until you feel it is gone. You might need to practice a few times before you get it right.
Don’t expect to swallow the dose in one smooth amount.
Here are some detailed tips to help you out.
- Measure out your desired dose
This sounds like basic knowledge, but it is a very important step in the toss and wash method. Don’t just measure the amount with your eyes and hope for the best. Determine the amount that you need, according to the effects that you want to feel afterward.
Start with small amounts as you build up your skills.
- Don’t swallow it all
Unless if you are taking small doses, be patient. If you are not used to the taste, it may overwhelm or choke you. Try taking a conservative approach with Kratom. Put a third or half of the total dose on your tongue, then chug it away.
- Place the Kratom in a glass
After measuring out your dosage, don’t let it sit on the scale. This makes tossing and washing rather difficult. Place the whole amount in a shallow glass or bowl so that you can access it easily when need be.
- Use a spoon to place the Kratom on your tongue
Many people forget this step. You have probably skipped it as you tossed and washed in the past.
The best way of taking Kratom is scooping it with a spoon then carefully transferring small amounts on your tongue. Don’t just dump it without a care in the world.
Using a spoon allows you to introduce small amounts of the dose to your tongue without choking you. Don’t skip this step until you become a toss and wash expert.
- Place the contents on the middle section of your tongue
This is the best way to go about it. If you do otherwise, you risk pushing the contents to the back of your throat. This will choke you, and you might end up coughing uncontrollably. Plus, it is an unpleasant method of taking Kratom.
Scoop the desired amount using a spoon, then pour the contents right at the middle of your tongue. Chug the content down using liquids such as water or a beverage of your choice.
The choice of liquid to wash down the contents doesn’t matter. Once you start chugging, don’t stop until it is done.
