Kratom is a natural botanical ingredient that can be ingested in a number of ways. Kratom is almost never smoked, and many believe that smoking is not an effective way of taking kratom.
Kratom is typically available as either a powder or in capsules.
Capsules are a popular way of taking kratom as they’re super easy to take and don’t have much taste, but they may take longer to set in and are a bit more pricey.
Powder is the most common form of kratom available and is popular for having low prices, however, the strong flavor may be off-putting for some.
Here are some of the most popular ways of taking kratom:
- Toss ‘N Wash- This is one of the most common ways of taking kratom powder as it’s fast, simple, and requires no prep time. The basic idea of a toss ‘n wash is to measure out how much powder you’d like to take, toss it into your mouth, and wash it down with a lot of water. You’ll feel the effects really quickly when taking kratom this way, but the downside is it tastes horrible. According to those who like this method it apparently gets easier over time, but fair warning- it’s not the easiest flavor in the world.
- Capsules- Kratom-filled capsules are perhaps the easiest way around the flavor of taking kratom powder! Many kratom companies will sell pre-filled capsules with a set amount in each cap, making dosing easy and taking the kratom even easier! Simply select how many capsules you’d like to take, count ‘em out, and swallow them with water.
- Make a Tea- This is another popular way of taking kratom powder as it lessens the undesirable flavor a bit. Make kratom tea by boiling the powder in water for 30 minutes, let it sit, and then strain the liquid to create the final product.
- Add to a Smoothie or Protein Shake- This is a great method when it comes to masking the flavor of kratom. Pour the dose of powder you want to take into an already-made smoothie or shake, and stir to mix. Super easy!
