Traditionally in Southeast Asia, kratom is usually taken, taking the leaves directly from the tree, chewing it. For those of us who are not lucky enough to live there, this way of taking it is complicated, so it is normal to buy kratom powder, crushed leaves or resins, and extracts. That is why we are going to see today what are the best ways to consume kratom.
Measure the dose
Before we begin, the first thing to do is to know what dose is appropriate for each person. The quantity will vary according to the variety of kratom and its potency, as well as the format in which it is presented since the resins and extracts are more concentrated. It also influences the tolerance and physical and mental state of each person.
The threshold amount for most varieties is one gram. But you must experiment for yourself until you find the correct dose. It is always better to start with low doses to see how our body reacts and thus adjust the amount.
Keep in mind that lower doses produce an energizing effect and high doses produce a sedative effect.
Ways to consume kratom
With water or juice
Let's say it's the simplest and most direct way. Also known as the "toss & wash" method. It consists of putting the amount of kratom (usually powdered) in the mouth and then drinking water, fruit drinks or shakes for those who want to hide the bitter taste. You can also add the kratom in a glass with lemon juice and mix well.
Mix it with food
Another simple way is to mix the kratom with yogurt or mash. Perhaps this is the best option for those who do not support the taste of kratom but you have to consider mixing everything very well and choosing sweet foods that counteract the bitter taste.
It is the most "professional" way. Online you can find kits to encapsulate and prepare your kratom capsules. It is a clean and comfortable way and allows you to store the doses for later use.
It is the most common way to take kratom in dried leaves. To make the kratom tea we put water in a saucepan and add the kratom. We put it on the fire and let it boil for about 10 minutes. We can add lemon juice, this helps to extract the alkaloids during boiling. We can also add honey to hide the taste.
