Hush Kratom Gummies Experience Report
Today I will be eating a Kratom edible for the first time in my life. Specifically, I will be taking Hush Kratom Gummies, which are infused with Kratom extract.
Apparently these gummies are ‘Tropical Passion’ flavored, and each gummy contains 10-11 mg of Mitragynine, but it is a full spectrum extract so it contains a bit of 7-hydroxymitragynine as well. Since a gram of Kratom leaf typically has 10-15 mg of Mitragynine, each gummy is like taking a gram of Kratom leaf. This is especially true when considering that Kratom extract works stronger and faster than Kratom leaf, so a dose of 10-11 mg of extract per gummy could actually have stronger effects than a gram of Kratom.
Further, this pack has 10 gummies in it, so if I eat the whole pack it will certainly be a powerful dose of Kratom. That being said, I’m planning on sharing a little of it with my wife.
Notably, I have not taken any Kratom since yesterday, so these Kratom gummies should work to their full potential. Also, my stomach is empty, so it should work more efficiently.
Without further ado, here is the experience report!
11:44 AM I open the bag and it smells like really strong pineapple. Each gummy is in the shape of a little star, here is the picture below.
11:48 AM I finally eat one of the gummies. It’s a bit chewy for a gummy, and is quite bitter for candy, and in-fact I can taste the Kratom in it a bit. That being said, it is quite palatable and tastes really good for a Kratom-based product. The pineapple really seems to equalize the Kratom taste.
11:51 AM Not even done eating the gummies and I feel a surge of opioid warmth.
11:52 AM I finish eating the gummies, and by the time I got to the last couple of them I am really loving the taste. It’s a very unique taste of tropical fruit with a slight note of Kratom.
I took 8 gummies total, which is 80-88 mg of Mitragynine, equivalent to 5-9 grams of leaf. I gave two to my wife.
11:55 AM Unmistakable feeling of building euphoria and stress relief. These gummies are surprisingly potent.
11:59 AM Feeling really sedated suddenly, which happens sometimes when I take Kratom after not getting enough sleep.
12:55 PM Well the sedation got stronger and stronger, and I was somewhere between a dream and reality while laying in bed, with strong euphoria and opioid analgesia. These gummies have way exceeded my expectations!
Now that I’m up feeling very relaxed and euphoric, zero aches and pains, and zero stress.
1:35 PM Incredibly talkative, articulate, and energetic, while simultaneously extremely relaxed and euphoric. It’s amazing how this experience has transitioned from a strong sedative effect to highly energetic.
2:28 PM Ate lunch, still feeling strongly relaxing effects.
Overall, I give these Hush Kratom extract gummies an A+. They far exceeded my expectations, and brought about an extremely powerful Kratom experience even though I did not even take the whole bag. Also, it is a much nicer way to take Kratom than powder or capsules. Based on this, I think Kratom edibles have a bright future, and I hope more varieties of edibles start to hit the market in the coming years.
What is Kratom?
Kratom is also known as Mitragyna Speciosa. Kratom is a tropical tree with a long history of conventional use in parts of Africa and Southeast Asia. Kratom is otherwise called Thom, Thang, and Biak. Its leaves and the teas prepared from them have for some time been utilized by individuals in that area. Kratom is really devoured all through the world for certain impacts (in the type of Tea, chewed, or ingested in capsules). The unique plant has been around this world for quite some time now. However, most people had never even heard of Kratom nor the origin of Kratom until as of recently, within the past couple of years.
Consumers all over the world now desire and have a strong appetite for this plant, as some of its effects have been recorded and well-documented to the public. However, there are effects and parts of this plant that are still unknown to the public. Till today, the plant doesn’t have much proper research conducted on it, so its efficacy is still not fully verified. However, scientists and curious people alike are working to change that and record any official effects.
Where did Kratom come from though? The origin of Kratom is not completely known. Only assumptions can be made from bits and pieces found within the recorded history of this plant. We know so far that the Kratom plant originates from Southeast Asia. It has been used within that area by native cultures for a variety of purposes, for many centuries. For example, tribal societies had used it in the past as a mild stimulant by chewing on its leaves, as it was very similar to Khat or Coca in a functional sense.
We also strive to remind people to always be careful with the amount of Kratom being consumed.

There are no FDA-approved uses for kratom, and the agency has received concerning reports about the safety of kratom. FDA is actively evaluating all available scientific information on this issue and continues to warn consumers not to use any products labeled as containing the botanical substance kratom or its psychoactive compounds, mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. FDA encourages more research to better understand kratom’s safety profile, including the use of kratom combined with other drugs.
While FDA evaluates the available safety information about the effects of kratom, the agency encourages health care professionals and consumers to report any adverse reactions to the FDA’s MedWatch program.
