Precautions for Kratom Consumption

Besides cannabis, there is another organic substance that is known to be very potent to function as a painkiller, Kratom. It’s widely used in traditional Southeast Asia, but today, many countries have started to consider banning this plant simply because there have not been enough clinical trials and studies. Kratom, especially the high-quality strains like bali kratom, indeed possesses other potential medical benefits as well. It treats chronic coughing, digestive ailments, diabetes, and even opioid withdrawal syndromes.

Nevertheless, Kratom is not without side effects. Remember that you must maintain the dosage low if you decide to consume Kratom-based products. If you take a high dose, here are the consequences:

Drowsiness

This effect may not seem like a problem if you take Kratom in a controlled situation. But if you think Kratom can replace CBD (Cannabidiol) in terms of its therapeutic effect, then you are wrong. Do not ingest Kratom if you want to deal with your anxiety before a job interview or any other stressful professional conducts.

Having said that, if you have taken Kratom before, and you know your limit when you microdose, then you are welcome to test out your resistance against Kratom’s psychoactivity.

Loss of Motor Coordination

Moreover, there is another form of Kratom that has been refined, Krypton. It combines Kratom with O-desmethyltramadol, and together, they can have a powerful depressive effect.

Therefore, it is best not to take Kratom before operating any machines or driving. Not only will you put yourself in danger but also other people.

Nausea and Vomiting

If you are a first-timer analgesic drug user, then you probably have to think twice before taking Kratom. Start with a small dose as Kratom can cause nausea and vomiting. If you have a history of travel sickness, do not aggravate these side effects. Avoid taking Krato while traveling or driving.

Severe Weight Loss

Another precaution that you must take is that Kratom can suppress your appetite effectively. Your body thinks that it can survive by consuming Kratom alone, but in reality, you will experience severe muscle loss. People who use Kratom for years show this effect.…

It’s essential to wrap baked foods and meats tightly in foil before placing them in freezer containers. Meats from the stores are mainly wrapped in Styrofoam or plastic trays, and these materials aren’t ideal for freezing. But you may use them if you will use the meals in less than one month.

Use the Right Containers

You should use freezer-safe containers and ensure the meals to be frozen fit into these containers. Additionally, make sure you leave as little air as possible in the freezer containers. You should remove any air in the freezer bags before sealing them.

Even if you plan to use the food in a few days or weeks, it’s essential to make sure you have labeled the date on the freezer containers or bags.

Use Sizable Containers

Choose small containers for your meals if you want the food to freeze quickly. This ensures bacterial growth is kept at bay. The food in the container should not exceed 3 inches thick.

Cool the Hot Foods First

If the food is hot, you should cool it first before placing it in the freezing containers. You can achieve this quickly by placing the container with the food in ice water and frequently stir to distribute the cold in the meal.

Check the Temperatures

You can only thaw bread, muffins, and other baked products at room temperature. The rest of the meals should be thawed in the microwave or the refrigerator. When storing your frozen meals in the freezer, let them occupy the coldest part of the freezer until they are fully chilled.

 

Store Them for About Two Months

If possible, consume frozen foods in two or three months. Note you can freeze milk, but it may separate slightly when thawed. Cottage, blue and cream cheeses crumble when thawed, but will still have the characteristic flavor.…
