Can You Smoke Kratom Powder?

Can You Smoke Kratom Powder 

Kratom, and the resulting kratom powder, is an herb native to the southeast Asia region. It has enjoyed a meteoric rise in popularity over the last couple of years in the U.S.A. This powder is derived from leaves from the Kratom tree (aka Mitragyna speciosa). The leaves contain some compounds (alkaloids) which possess opiate-like effects. 

To answer the question, ‘can I smoke kratom powder?’’, the answer is no. To begin, taking in kratom through the lungs could have long-term effects on the lungs and central nervous system. Large amounts of kratom can have negative effects on the capillaries in your lungs when smoked. 

Why smoke Kratom powder?

While Kratom has been known and used in Asia and parts of Europe for a long period, it only found its way to America recently. Since then, researchers have continued to explore its limits and find answers to many of the questions asked of the substance. 

Today, we know about the benefits of Kratom, recommended dose, and other wonderful benefits it adds to the body. But, smoking kratom has always been advised against by scientists. To begin, kratom powder is too finely ground, and smoking it alone is almost impossible. However, what some people do to bypass this is to add kratom to other substances like cannabis or tobacco. This is very dangerous and could inadvertently lead to severe side effects. 

For example, cannabis is known to have a huge impact on the central nervous system, as does kratom. Mixing Kratom with tobacco might leave your body with toxic side effects over a long period. The presence of nicotine which is the active compound found in tobacco has been known to have toxic effects on the liver and mixing both substances could increase the toxicity levels.

      Hey there, first off please understand this isn’t medical advice as we aren’t medical professionals- this is merely our best understanding on the subject. Starting off with a dose of a few grams, 3-4, is a great place to start out. You can work up slowly from there in dosage till you feel like you’re getting ideal effects, most people don’t take more than 8-10 grams at a time (this is a fairly large dose). THC tolerance won’t really come into play with kratom as the alkaloids that cause kratom to have effects are different from cannabinoids and THC, and kratom interacts with the opiate receptors in your brain while THC works on endocannabinoid receptors. Finally, we have lab testing for our kratom! When you visit a product page, you should see the ‘Lab Results’ section which will let you open a third-party lab test which verifies our kratom is pure. We absolutely never cut or adulterate our kratom in any way, but for peace of mind you can see this for yourself!

    My friend said that he took one and that “one” capsole of the basic. Kratom silver o.p.m.s.
    Was enough to feel the effect and how it works. Just a bit. I felt good then one more 20min later felt good but less time them 2hour later the come down sensation…mental and physical.. 600mg per capsule. M9= 7.8mg per capsule and 7-oh-m9= 0.27 per capsule. But so 3 to 4 grams. (Which I thought was alot) Is 4 to 5 capsules… 5×600=3000mg =3g is that correct? So after he experimented with two he took two more capsules same day just 2 hours apart. And got increased effect. So I think 1 to 2 capsules is the stimulate effect and 4-8 is the p**n reliver… Etc. Again. This maybe be simple because one has to see how this reacts with one…so as to be able to know for oneself when too little is too little and too much is too much. So dont think it will be ok. This stuff is very effective… He felt it in the first 2 to 5 mins. From taking the capsule. First sensation cahmger in the eyes and the arms then the whole body. So the ……bodys system is …. Put into a chemical reation for which the body is made to become …changed. And so…to someone it could be good and too someone else he prob found it not the best scenario to put your body into.
