How much Kratom should I take?

Let’s Talk Kratom Dosage

There’s no easy answer to the question of how much kratom powder to take. Most first-time users would love it if someone could tell them the ideal kratom dose they should take. However, not all kratom has the same potency and everyone’s body is different. Both your metabolism rate and your tolerance levels will affect how the dosage affects you. Also, your experience may be different depending on whether you eat before you take your kratom dose. The best advice we can give you on kratom dosing and the ideal kratom dose is to take things slowly.

How Much Kratom Should I Take the First Time?

Are you new to kratom? This section is meant for you! It’s important to be cautious when trying kratom for the first time, as the effects can vary from person to person. Generally, the method below has worked well for us, however it is not medical advice.

Most people start with two to four grams of kratom. If you don’t feel the effects after 20 to 30 minutes, you can take an additional gram or two. This is better than taking too much at one time. If you start with a high dose, you may have to endure unpleasant side effects for a while.

Wondering How Much Kratom Powder to Take?

If it’s your first Bali kratom dosage (or any other type) and you’re trying the powder, you need to keep in mind that a teaspoon equates to three or four grams. Therefore, you’ll need just half a teaspoon for a low dose of two grams and one teaspoon for a moderate dose of four grams.

If it isn’t your first time taking kratom powder and you’re struggling to find the right dose, consider starting quite small and working up from there every half hour till desired effects are felt. Or, alternatively, trying a kratom tea recipe or another strain of kratom might be of more help.

How Many Kratom Capsules to Take?

If you’re taking our kratom capsules, you should note that each capsule contains half a gram of kratom. This means you would need to take four capsules for a two gram dose of kratom and eight capsules for a four gram dose. Regardless of whether you choose powder or capsules, you should start small so your body can adjust. You should also drink lots of water since kratom can be dehydrating. Keep in mind other companies might have larger or smaller capsules than us, which could impact kratom dosage. The amount of kratom per capsule is important to get ideal kratom dosing.

Kratom capsules are popular among those who can’t stand the taste of kratom, as it is a fairly strong flavor that is often described as grass-like or tea-like. If you’re new to kratom and not sure how many kratom capsules to take for a good starting dose, we would recommend going with 4 capsules (a 2 gram dose) and working up from there slowly if effects aren’t noticeable / not as strong as desired. 

How Much Kratom is Too Much?

It’s possible to develop a tolerance for kratom. Often, when taking the same type of kratom repeatedly and frequently, your body grows accustomed to the alkaloid blend of that strain. Then, you’ll feel less-intense effects from the same dose. This is when you might take higher and higher doses to feel the same effects. This is most likely to happen if you take kratom very frequently and don’t switch strains. To reduce the risk of developing tolerance and cravings, you should limit your usage to two to three times per week.

If you’re wondering if your large kratom dose is safe, here’s our opinion on the matter. We recommend not taking more than 10-15 grams of kratom a day. This would be considered a large dose of kratom, or several smaller doses taken over the course of the day.
