View Larger Image Oblate Bags: How To We have quite a few customers who love using oblates for taking their Kratom. We also have some curious on how these work. So, I put together a little video to help anyone curious. Oblate bags are available on Amazon. Enjoy! – Becca Sorry, your browser doesn't support embedded videos.

If you are just going to drop the disc into a cup of water, what’s the sense in using it at all? Why not just dump 2 grams in the water without the use of the disc? I generally take k-tea in my coffee, stirring in approximately 7 grams of it into about 4 ounces of coffee and drink. However, when I use oblates (I use the bags, not the discs), I just put it in my mouth, take a swig of whatever cold beverage I am drinking and swallow. The oblate filled with the k-tea just goes down with the drink so easily that it’s not even noticeable. Can you explain why you put it in an oblate first if you are just stirring it into the water anyway? Thanks! Otie's Botanicals December 8, 2019 at 7:13 pm - Reply I personally do it this way. It does not dissolve in the water, because I immediately drink the cup of water with the disc in it. Rather than putting the disc in my mouth then drinking. We all do things a little differently. 🙂 Mark Berkowicz January 28, 2020 at 3:51 am - Reply Hi Joyce! I use Oblate discs too. The concept is a little difficult to understand until you try it. Then it will make total sense. The point of the Oblate disc is to wrap the kratom powder into a little package and seal it with water like a little pill pocket. The water will start dissolving the potato starch disc pretty quick, so you can’t take much time with this process. You want to swallow the little pill pocket before it melts causing the powder to come out. Once you wrap the powder in the disc, you can give it a quick dip in the water or just drop the entire thing in the cup of water. The water makes the little package of kratom slippery. So when you drink, the little package of powder just slides down your throat. The kratom never touches your tongue because it’s sealed in the disc and you don’t taste the bitter powder at all. I also like the taste of kratom powder mixed into coffee with some cream and sugar or mixed into orange juice. But when I want to toss and wash, I’ve failed enough times that I fear turning into a green-powder breathing dragon. A toss and wash failure tends to mess up my throat and nose for a day or so. For those that struggle with toss and wash, like me, the Oblate discs makes it so simple. It’s almost the same thing as a toss and wash, except the powder is sealed up in the disc. As long as you don’t take to long to swallow it after wetting the disc, it make the toss and wash as fail proof as it gets. A disc can hold up to 3 grams of powder. The Oblate bags are the same material as the discs, just bigger. The bags are pre-formed like little bags. They are easier to work with if you want to make a larger 5-6 gram pill pocket. I hope that clears things up. I didn’t quite get the point of the Oblates at first either. Until I tried it. Best of luck.
