How to Take Kratom: A Complete Guide for Beginners

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

There are estimated to be about 16 million Americans who take kratom. That’s based on an estimated 2,000 metric tons of kratom that are imported to the U.S. each month. 

If you’re a beginner, you might wonder how to take kratom. While there are various options to take it, one way might work better for you than others.

This article will go over the different methods of taking kratom. Read on to explore these different ways, and find the right way to take kratom for you today. 

Dosing Kratom

If you’re new to kratom or trying a new strain, you’ll want to start small and see how your body responds to it. You can take more kratom as needed. Begin with a gram and add more if you don’t feel anything after half an hour. 

Higher doses of kratom are more of a sedative effect. In lower doses, it’s more of a stimulant. 

1. Making Kratom Tea

If you’re looking for the best way to take kratom, you can make kratom tea. After reading about kratom and drug tests, you’ll want to boil one cup of water, and let it sit for 30 seconds.

Next, add in the amount of kratom powder you’d like to take and place it into a large mug. Pour the hot water over the powder and let it sit for 30 seconds. 

Stir and let cool. Add your favorite tea to the mix and enjoy. You can also pour the kratom powder through a strainer, and reuse the unused powder for later. 

2. Toss and Wash

In order to use the toss and wash method, you’ll first want to pour a large glass of water or other beverage. Measure the dosage of kratom powder you’d like to take. 

Take the kratom powder, and place it onto your tongue. Drink your beverage of choice to help swallow the kratom. Keep drinking it until the kratom powder is rinsed out of your mouth. 

3. Capsules

You can buy kratom as a capsule if you’re looking for a discreet and quick method. The capsule is filled with powder, and you won’t taste the bitter flavor.

You can also buy empty capsules, and make your own pills as well. For those looking for larger doses of kratom, it might not be the best option. 

4. Add It To Food

Since kratom has a bitter taste, many try to hide the flavor, including mixing it into food. Your best options are milkshakes, smoothies, and yogurt.

Try out soup or oatmeal as well. Mix the food up with the kratom powder within it. 

5. Kratom Smoothies

Whether you’re taking protein powder or not, you can add kratom powder to your favorite smoothie. First, place your milk of choice, optional yogurt, a few leaves of spinach, and fruit.

Add your kratom. Mix it up in a blender, pour, and enjoy. 

6. Mix With Orange Juice

You can mix it with orange juice in order to hide the bitter taste. First, measure out the amount of kratom you’d like to take. 

Next, mix it with 8 ounces of orange juice. Stir it and enjoy. 

Kratom Dosage

Start small and increase the dosage over time. Start with 2-3 grams of kratom at most. 

Once you take it, wait 20-30 minutes before taking more. See how you feel, and if you don’t feel anything then you can take another 0.5 to 1 gram. 

You want to find the right amount that you can feel the kratom at the lowest dose. Stay vigilant when taking kratom and never abuse it. 

1-3 grams are taken for mild stimulant effects. This is the perfect amount for an energy boost.

3-6 grams are taken for an improved mood, pain relief, and energy. Many say that they take this amount for anxiety relief.

6-8 grams is for seasoned kratom users. You’ll want to work your way up to this amount over time if you’re interested in this. This is the right amount for pain and anxiety relief. 

If you overdo it, you might experience the signs of a kratom overdose. This can include a coma, seizure, nausea, tachycardia, hypertension, drowsiness, and agitation. 

Stay Hydrated

Like tea and coffee, kratom can make you feel dehydrated. It’s important to drink plenty of water when you take it. 

Take on an Empty Stomach

For the best effect, take it on an empty stomach. Food can lessen the effect of kratom. 

Keep a Log

Keep a log of what strain you take, and how much. Since each strain and brand can impact you differently, you can reference it again in the future. 

Choose High-Quality Kratom

Choose the company that has customer support, plenty of reviews, and many satisfied customers. Find those who state that their kratom is tested by a 3rd party lab. 

Kratom Strains

The different kratom veins include white, red, and green. Many state that they choose green for a mix between white and red with a pleasing effect.

White vein kratom is said to help with motivation and alertness. Many take the red because they state it helps as a sedative effect. 

Speak With Your Doctor

Before beginning, you’ll want to speak with your doctor about any conditions or medications you’re currently taking. Kratom can be harmful if it’s mixed with certain medications. Common dangerous interactions include alcohol, opioids, and benzodiazepines.
