Many people who are new to kratom find that they get the best experience when they take it with food. Using kratom on an empty stomach can lead to nausea, so it’s best to have either a snack or a full meal.
Incorporating kratom powder into your preferred foods is one of the best ways to consume it. Pudding, oatmeal, and yogurt are a few foods that pair well with the herb.
However, there are some foods, the powder can not mix well with, especially if you add too much of it. In this case, add small doses at first until the desired effects are seen.
Note: Keep in mind, that eating food and then taking this herb will help with nausea- but it might also cause the Kratom effects to feel a bit weaker. For the strongest effects possible, take kratom on an empty stomach. But be aware this might cause an upset stomach, especially for someone newer to kratom.
How To Take Kratom Capsules
Kratom capsules are easy for most people to take. It’s easy to get the dosage right and you won’t really be able to taste the kratom. However, when you take the substance in capsule form, it takes longer to work. Capsules also tend to cost more than powder. Meanwhile, the powder acts faster but it can be hard to measure the dose accurately. The strong taste can also be too much for some people, although there are ways to minimize the flavor.
If you decide that capsules are best for you, you should probably start with a mild dose and then
work your way up if necessary. Since the effects will depend on your body weight, tolerance, and other unique factors. The below doses are merely suggestions.
- Energy – 1 to 2 capsules
- Relaxation – 3 to 4 capsules
- Relief of discomfort – 4 to 5 capsules
How To Take Kratom Extract
For those who don’t want to deal with the potent flavor or smell of the plant in its powder form, a kratom extract is a popular option. Extracts are more concentrated than direct, undistilled substances since they are distilled. Here are a few tips and tricks for using Kratom extract.
- Similar to how you would with powder, brew the extract in tea or combine it with juice. You can also add a few drops to your food or even your drink.
- Drops can also be applied sublingually, which is referred to as “sublingual administration.”
- At first, add just a few drops at once to gauge your tolerance levels. You won’t need to use as much of this extract to get benefits because it contains more alkaloids than other ways of consuming it and hence is more potent.
Kratom is a versatile substance, not only because of its numerous benefits but also because it may be consumed in a variety of ways.
If you’re new, we advise trying Kratom capsules since they don’t need to be measured and are simple to use. You also won’t be put off by the taste or strong smell of kratom. However, if you are a seasoned user, level up with some powder or extract. You can better tailor your dose and achieve stronger Kratom effects.
