Kratom Dosage Revealed

Kratom therapy can be life-changing, but only if done correctly.

The quality of your Kratom is the biggest variable in determining a proper Kratom dosage.  You must use high quality Kratom above anything else.

Now that you’ve bought your Kratom, how much should you take?

The optimal dose isn’t always cut and dry.  Everyone reacts differently when first starting out, so there can be a bit of a learning curve.

It is also important to understand that Kratom produces many different effects and most of those effects are dose dependent.

For example, you will not use the same Kratom dose for pain relief as you would if you are looking for an energy kick.

There are several factors that influence how many grams you should consume and how long the Kratom will take to affect you.

When and how much you have eaten, how much you weigh, your method of consumption and the quality of the Kratom itself are all things to keep in mind when determining your optimal dose.

High quality Kratom will generally produce effects from a minimal dose and at the quickest rate when it is taken on an empty stomach.

For the best results, it is recommend that you consume your Kratom at least two hours before or after you eat a large meal.  This way the Kratom will enter your bloodstream faster and require a lesser dose then if you were to take it while full.

How Much Kratom Should I Take?

It is usually recommend that a novice Kratom user begin their dosing level at 1 or 2 grams.  Allow 30 minutes to pass before you consider taking more…by this time the plant should be working its magic on you.  Allow approximately 20 minutes or so more if you consume Kratom capsules.

If you are feeling the effects at this point then you may choose to ride it out.  If you’re not quite where you want to be, you may add an additional 1/2 to 1 gram until you reach your desired outcome.  Dosing in this manner will allow your body to become accustomed to the Kratom at a rate that is comfortable.

It isn’t recommend to exceed the 5 gram mark on your first time around.  People can get sick when they try to take too much Kratom at once.  If you are using high-quality product from one of our recommended vendors, 3 grams should be plenty.   Many long-term users never go above this amount, while others take much more.  It just depends on what your goals are.

Once you have reached your desired effect, you can coast for 3-6 hours before you need to re-dose, if you feel that is necessary.

After you determine what your optimal dose is, your body will require that dose every time for you to feel the same effects so try to stay consistent.

You may find that a digital scale can be helpful for this.

Below is the Kratom dosage guide that lists the basic layout of a Kratom dose.  It is recommend that most users stay within the mild and moderate ranges.  Many will require less of a Kratom dosage.  Some may want more.

The higher doses should mainly be used to come down from a severe opiate addiction or to temporarily treat severe pain.
