How To Take Kratom Guide

Before you consider trying kratom, there are a few essential things you should know.

It’s very important that you know how to take kratom.

In this guide, we will be covering all the best ways on how to take kratom.

There are multiple ways you can take kratom. Most people will go with kratom powder or capsules. I’ve even read about people trying to smoke kratom, which is a bad idea.

By far the best way to take kratom is to ingest the powder. The powder is quickly absorbed and you will start feeling the effects within 20 to 30 minutes.

If you aren’t sure what to expect, it might take a little longer. I’ve heard of people wait close to an hour to start feeling the full effects.

Depending on the potency of your kratom the effects last anywhere from 3 to 6 hours.

If you are new to Kratom, there are plenty of different strains you can consider trying. But remember, it’s very important to start out with a low kratom dosage.

Make sure to accurately weigh out each dosage so you know exactly how much kratom you are taking. Remember, less is more.

A lot of people think that a larger dose will result in a better experience, this definitely isn’t the case.

How To Take Kratom Powder

Obviously, you want to get the most out of your kratom experience. It’s important that you get comfortable with how to take kratom powder.

Also, make sure to purchase kratom powder from a reputable source. I highly suggest checking out Topextracts if you need premium quality Kratom.

If you’re wondering how to take kratom powder, let me show you some of the most popular methods.

Taking Kratom With Juice

Taking Kratom powder with Juice might help cover the strong taste. Orange, pineapple and cranberry juice are said to be the most effective. The first step would be to grab an empty cup and add your kratom to it.

Once you have done so, grab your juice of choice and add roughly 150 to 200ml. Finally, keep stirring until the kratom fully dissolves in the juice.

This might take several minutes, once it has been fully absorbed you can drink the kratom juice!

Toss and Wash Kratom

This is my personal favorite method for taking kratom powder. It doesn’t really require anything specific besides the kratom powder and some water. The name pretty much speaks for itself.

You toss the kratom into your mouth and wash it down with some water or juice. Oh and make sure to not use any soda for the toss and wash method, its a bad idea.

A lot of people prefer the toss and wash method because it’s fast and simple. I like to take my Maeng Da Kratom this way even though the aftertaste is quite horrible.

Unfortunately, nothing fully takes away the taste of Kratom. If you really can’t stand the taste of the powder, I highly suggest checking out kratom capsules.

Kratom Tea

You’ll also see plenty of people make Kratom Tea. As you can imagine, there are a lot of different recipes on how to make kratom tea. Let me give you an example of a kratom tea recipe.

Kratom tea

Put your kratom dosage in a mug along with plenty of sugar or honey. Next up, add your preferred type of tea bag. It’s now time to add hot water but make sure you don’t add too much.

You can choose to add some extra milk to the tea along with some ice cubes. The ice cubes will help cool the tea down so you are able to consume it faster. Make sure to keep stirring, else the kratom will stay at the bottom.

Kratom Capsules

Another convenient way of taking kratom powder is through capsules. Kratom capsules are easy to take and you can simply take them whenever you feel like doing so.

On the other hand, kratom capsules are usually more expensive than powder. I would also like to add that capsules are often dosed at 0.5 grams per capsule. Let’s say you want to take 5 grams, that means you will have to consume 10 capsules.

But with capsules, you won’t have to worry about the strong taste. Some people can’t stand the taste which makes capsules a great alternative.

How long Does Kratom Take To Kick In?

People often ask me..

How long does kratom take to kick in?

Well, it depends. Are you going to take kratom powder or capsules? There is a difference in absorption between these two.

If I take my white vein kratom powder with a glass of water, I’ll start feeling the effects very quickly, probably within 15 minutes.

But, if I take kratom capsules it will take at least twice as long to feel any effect. This is because the capsules need to be broken down in the stomach.

Usually, this process takes around half an hour. So you’ll slowly start feeling the effects after roughly 30 minutes. However, it can take up to one hour for the kratom to fully kick in.

Keep in mind that the effects of kratom strains such as red Bali and gold Bali are very user dependent. Especially if you’re new to kratom just patiently wait for it to kick in.

It’s completely up to you which one you take. There is absolutely no difference in terms of effectiveness, the absorption just takes a little longer.

Get comfortable with how to take kratom so that you are able to enjoy your experience.
