A nice nameless fellow who is the owner of this particular head shop gave me a bottle of this stuff comp (it retails for around twenty-four bucks for 12ml which presumably is a one-time dose. It is in the form of a tincture. I agreed to post this review in return so he could get a gauge on the efficacy and effect. I can assure the reader that at no time under the influence of this product did I ever entertain the notion of eating anybody's anatomy.

I took a full bottle at 1:30 in the morning and will divide the review into three parts: Taste, Effect, Rating.
Taste: The taste of Lucky Kratom is ungodly bitter with an oily follow up. I was reminded of unsweetened absinthe. Lesser experienced souls may barf.
Effect: After about thirty minutes, a mild effect began to kick in. It was a slight body-tingling and overall, I can compare the next hour or so to the effects of a 5mg Valium.
Rating: From 1-10 and given the rather steep purchase price, mild effect and unpalatable taste experience, I could not recommend this product. I rate it a 3.
So there you have it. Honest, economical, no holds barred review. Although I deeply appreciate the opportunity to have given it a college try. I will be posting more reviews of alternative 'legal' pseudo-drugs as they come available.
