If you’re new to taking kratom, you may be unsure about what method of taking it is right for you. Here’s a guide on several ways to take kratom that’ll help you figure it out, plus a couple tips on using kratom, like taking kratom with food!
Grassroots kratom comes as a powder or in capsules.
First off, let’s figure out if powder or capsules are best for you:
- Easy to take
- Almost no taste
- Easy to dose
- Slower acting effects
- Less bang for your buck
- Fast acting effects
- Great bang for your buck
- Harder to dose precisely
- Strong taste makes it harder to take (there are tricks to help this!)
If taste is a dealbreaker for you, capsules are probably the way to go!
Here’s a dosing guide for Grassroots Harvest capsules. This is based on an estimated average, and should be adjusted according to body weight and/or tolerance.
Mild- 1 to 2 g (2-4 capsules)
Moderate- 2 to 4.5 g (4-9 capsules)
High- 4.5 to 8 g (9-16 capsules)
(our capsules are .5 g each)
Kratom powder has a strong taste, but there are ways to take it that minimize the flavor and make it easier! Here are some of the most popular ways of taking kratom powder:
- Like Protein Powder- One of the fastest ways of getting kratom into your system. Measure the desired amount into a teaspoon/tablespoon with a glass of water or flavored liquid prepared. Toss the kratom powder as far back as possible, making sure not to breathe in, and immediately wash down with the prepared liquid. The effects will kick in quickly and powerfully.
- As A Tea- This method is growing more and more popular. Simply place the desired amount of kratom into a coffee filter and let steep in boiling water for 10-15 minutes to brew a strong kratom tea. The effects are pleasant and long lasting.
- Mixed Into Food- Kratom can be mixed with food and eaten, some of the most popular things to mix it into are smoothies and orange juice, as they mask the flavor well. Effects will take longer to kick in with this method, but they will also last a long time.
If one of those options sounds good to you, kratom powder might be the way to go! Here’s a dosing guide for Grassroots Harvest kratom powder. This is based off an estimated average, and should be adjusted according to body weight and/or tolerance.
- Mild- Up to .5 tsp.
- Moderate- 1 to 1.5 tsp.
- High- 2 to 2.5 tsp.
Taking Kratom With Food
It’s always best to try to take kratom with food, not on an empty stomach. Especially for those that are newer to kratom, having a bunch of raw powder in your stomach without much else in there can cause discomfort and nausea. So, for the best results when taking kratom, we recommend taking it with food- a snack or a whole meal.
