Tips for Taking Kratom Dosage

New users taking Kratom need to maintain a stable dosage, as developing tolerance for a particular Kratom strain after a while is a common. If you are taking Kratom in capsule form, follow the instructions on the package. Each bottle will inform you on the amount of Kratom contained in each capsule.

If you are taking Kratom in powder form, you should ingest it instead of smoking it.

Here are a few ways to take it:

  • Toss and Water Method — Eat one teaspoon of Kratom powder, put it in your mouth, and wash it down with a tall glass of water. For new users, the correct Kratom dosage is to eat two teaspoons each day, increasing the dosage after three to four days have passed.
  • Yogurt Method — The bitter taste of Kratom can make it difficult for a person to swallow it. If that is the case, you can combine Kratom powder with yogurt. Add two teaspoons of Kratom powder into yogurt and eat it. You can add more yogurt to the mixture if you want.
  • Protein Shake Method — Like the yogurt method, in this method, you need to add one and half a teaspoon of Kratom powder into a protein shake. The reason you are decreasing the Kratom dosage in this method is because protein shakes contain several proteins and nutrients, which are good for your health, but with a possibility of unwanted side effects. Therefore, you need to monitor the results on your health as you gradually increase the Kratom dosage.
  • Tea Method – In a pot of water, add Kratom powder and let it boil for 30 minutes or more. Turn off the stove, let it sit, and then strain off the liquid. You can drink Kratom tea either hot or cold.


How to Use Kratom

People take Kratom, also known as Biak, Ketum, Kakuam, Ithang, and Thom, in pill, capsule, and extract form. Some people chew its leaves or brew the powdered or dried leaves in boiling water and drink it as tea. Other times, people smoke the leaves or add them to food.

How Kratom Works

Kratom acts both as an opioid and stimulant. Kratom leaves contain two types of compounds, 7-α-hydroxymitragynine and mitragynine. These two compounds interact with the brain’s opioid receptors, producing pleasurable, sedative, and pain-relieving effects. Mitragynine interacts with other brain receptors to produce stimulants effects. Consuming large amounts of Kratom heightens these effects. Consuming it in small amounts, increases energy levels, decreases anxiety, making the person more sociable, and improves mental alertness.

The Health Benefits of Kratom

Here is a list of health benefits of Kratom:

  1. Relieves Pain

Karatom contains alkaloids, thus giving it the same pain-relieving effect as morphine, but without being highly addictive.

  1. Increases Focus

Kratom can enhance mental alertness by influencing the brain’s opiate receptors and alkaloids, periphery, mitragynine, and 7-hydroxy mitragynine. It will help people work harder for longer hours without losing their focus due to the release of acetylcholine.

  1. Increases Motivation Levels

Kratom activates the opioid receptors in the brain, causing the person’s motivation levels to rise. It offers people an adrenaline rush, which causes the person to complete a task, thanks to the sympathetic nerves releasing noradrenaline and adrenaline.
