The most common question we get from people who are interested in starting to use Kratom is “what dose should I take”?
There is no definitive answer for this, and it really depends on the individual. Some people can handle a lower dose whereas others need more of a kick.
If you are new to Kratom supplements, start by taking very small amounts and gradually build up until you find your happy medium. The amount of time necessary to do this will vary depending on your tolerance level. If you want to build up quickly, then begin with a smaller dosage than if you are a slow tester.
When determining the correct dose for yourself, it is important that you do not exceed your recommended daily limit (RDM). This is because Kratom may cause withdrawal symptoms if you suddenly stop using it. It is also important that you don’t use too much at once.
For example, it won’t be good to use 10x the RDM of Kratom in one day, but it could still be useful to have two doses of 2x the RDM of Kratom to help alleviate any negative effects of long-term use.
In addition to not exceeding the RDM, it is important to avoid taking Kratom within three hours after eating or drinking anything else other than water. Drinking alcohol or smoking cigarettes right before or after taking Kratom could make you feel even worse.
What Kind Of Kratom Is Best For Me?
This is one of the biggest questions you should ask yourself when deciding what type of Kratom to buy. There are many types of Kratom available, and each one varies slightly in their effects.
Some types of Kratom offer sedative effects, such as relaxing, pain relief, anti anxiety, mood enhancement, etc. Other types of Kratom have stimulant properties, giving you a boost of energy. Others still are full-on opiates, causing euphoria and relaxation.
It is important to remember that everyone has a different tolerance and reaction to Kratom. If you are used to taking prescription medication, then you may find Kratom easier to tolerate than another person who doesn’t typically use drugs. It is also important to note that some Kratom strains are stronger than others.
Should I Buy Raw Leaves Or A Pouched Extract?
Raw leaves contain chemicals known as alkaloids. These compounds give Kratom its unique taste and effects. Because of this, raw leaves tend to be more potent than pouches. In addition to being more potent, raw leaves also cost less per gram than pouches.
How Do I Take My Kratom?
One of the most important things you should consider when choosing how to take your Kratom is the effect you want. Most people prefer to use capsules because these are easy to consume and have a consistent strength throughout the duration of the product. Capsules are also convenient because it allows you to measure out exact doses without having to guess.
Capsules are also great for storing your Kratom if you plan to take it regularly. They are compact and dry so that you can store them in a safe place. On the other hand, if you prefer to smoke your Kratom, then you should consider buying loose leaf instead of a capsule. Loose leaf is usually cheaper, and it gives you access to all of the benefits of smoking without the hassle of having to package it into a capsule.
Another thing to consider is whether you would rather mix your Kratom with water or coffee. Mixing it with water keeps the overall potency fairly low, but it makes it convenient to drink when you have a busy schedule. Coffee contains caffeine, and caffeine can actually have an adverse affect on the high caused by Kratom. So, it is best to avoid mixing your Kratom with caffeine altogether.
Is Smoking Kratom Safe?
Smoking Kratom is a popular method of consumption because it gives users a rush similar to that of marijuana. Kratom has been found to produce a mild psychedelic sensation when smoked, making it feel a lot like cannabis. But unlike marijuana, Kratom does not contain THC. Therefore, smoking Kratom is completely legal and can’t be considered a form of drug abuse.
