We all love kratom capsules’ ease and effects, but nailing down the perfect serving size can feel like a puzzle. Let’s tackle this burning question: ‘How many kratom capsules should I take?’

The answer isn’t a one-size-fits-all. It depends on several factors, such as your previous experience with kratom, how well you tolerate it, what effects you desire, and more.

You’re in the right place if you’re a kratom enthusiast scratching your head over this. This blog has some handy tips to help you figure out the ideal kratom capsule serving size.

Serving Size For Kratom Capsules

Super Speciosa’s recommended serving is five kratom capsules, equivalent to 2.5 grams of kratom powder which is roughly one teaspoon. Each capsule contains 500 milligrams of kratom powder. This serving size is ideal for both beginners and experienced kratom enthusiasts.

Disclaimer: It’s important not to exceed two servings of kratom in 24 hours. Please read our complete kratom guide to safe usage.

Strains Of Kratom Capsules

Kratom varieties are often misrepresented as strains. At Super Speciosa, we prefer to use the term “variety” instead of “strain.” We classify our kratom based on batches and alkaloid profiles.

Our Maeng Da and Signature Reserve varieties have the highest Mitragynine percentage, while Bali, Green Malay, and White Thai are milder options. This helps us maintain a consistent kratom experience for our customers. Read the truth about kratom strains.

Factors to Consider for Kratom Capsules Serving Size

Kratom’s effects can vary due to the unique alkaloid composition of its leaves. One must choose lab-tested, high-quality kratom to prioritize safety and adjust the serving size based on its Mitragynine content.

Now, let’s explore some essential kratom factors.

Body Weight and Metabolism

Kratom’s effects vary from person to person due to individual body chemistry. Factors like body weight can influence the ideal serving size; individuals with greater body weight may require slightly larger servings for similar effects.

Additionally, a faster metabolism can lead to quicker results. Consider taking kratom capsules on an empty stomach for a more potent impact.

Experience and Tolerance Level

If you have developed a high tolerance to kratom due to frequent use, you might not experience its effects as expected. To reset your tolerance, take a break from kratom for a few days or gradually reduce your serving size with each use.

For those new to kratom, starting with a smaller serving size is advisable to account for potentially lower tolerance.

Desired Effects

The distinct alkaloid profile of kratom offers wide-ranging benefits for well-being. Smaller kratom servings are often associated with energizing benefits, while larger servings are known for their calming and soothing qualities.

Depending on the specific benefits of kratom you seek, you may adjust your serving sizes accordingly, dialing them up or down as needed.

Strain Strength

Not all kratom capsules are created equal, and the alkaloid composition can vary between strains and even among different batches of the same strain.

The natural variation can also affect the density of the kratom powder within the gelatin capsules. However, it’s important to note that this variability typically occurs when making capsules yourself. 

At Super Speciosa, we ensure that all our kratom capsules are reliably measured and have consistent quality.

Effects of Kratom Capsules

The desired effects of kratom can be felt within 15 minutes of consumption and take about 45 minutes to kick in completely. Consumers have reported that kratom’s effects range from mood-lifting and energizing to overall wellness, depending on the variety of strains and serving sizes. 

It’s important to note that the onset of kratom’s effects is a little longer for capsules compared to kratom powder. This is because capsules have an extra capsule barrier which takes an extra digestion time.

What Is Kratom?

Kratom comes from the Mitragyna speciosa tree. The leaf of the kratom plant is available as a dietary botanical supplement to enhance the mind and body. Natives of Southeast Asia in Malaysia, Myanmar, Indonesia, and Thailand have used this herbal supplement for centuries to fight physical and mental fatigue. Traditionally, Southeast Asian natives chewed kratom leaves or brewed to make kratom tea.

Different strains of organic kratom can have other alkaloid profiles. Generally, red vein or red kratom strains, such as Red Borneo, are known for their relaxing effects. In contrast, green vein kratom and white vein kratom, such as Green Maeng Da, Bali, Malay, and White Thai kratom, are known for energizing and stimulating effects. Read why people love kratom!

How Do I Take Kratom?

Super Speciosa recommends 2.4 grams of kratom powder per serving. This roughly equals one teaspoon, five kratom capsules, 1-2 kratom tea bags, or eight kratom pills. Kratom supplements should not be taken more than twice in 24 hours.

Where Can I Buy Kratom Capsules?

Super Speciosa is one of the best kratom vendors to buy kratom capsules. We’ve helped over 100,000 customers and have thousands of positive reviews.

Can I Make My Kratom Capsules at Home?

You can create kratom capsules to customize serving sizes or use specific strains at home. 

This method also allows you to choose the size of the capsule form. However, maintaining consistent quality and precise serving sizes at home can take time and effort. For a reliably measured and convenient option, consider our Super Speciosa kratom capsules.

Should I Start With A Lower Serving Size If I’m A First-Time User?

Yes. If this is your first time taking kratom, take a small amount and see how your body responds to kratom and if the effects meet your desired needs.

Are There Any Potential Side Effects Of Kratom Capsules?

Super Speciosa urges everyone to use kratom safely and follow our product labels’ recommended servings and precautions. Heavy kratom use may lead to adverse effects such as nausea, drowsiness, constipation, itchiness, headache, frequent urination, or weight loss. If you have concerns about kratom safety, read our helpful guide.

Taking kratom in combination with other substances is also potentially dangerous. If you are on medication, consult a healthcare provider for medical advice. Kratom is also not suitable for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Do not use kratom for medical use, help with chronic pain, or opioid withdrawal symptoms, or manage opioid addiction or pain relief. FDA’s recommended addiction treatment or mental health therapy are better options.

Are Kratom Capsules FDA Approved?

Unlike drugs, dietary supplements do not need the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s approval. Because kratom is no exception, kratom vendors can market kratom supplements to consumers. However, the concern for safety in terms of quality is valid. We want to emphasize that all our products undergo strict quality control procedures to ensure our kratom is contaminant-free and safe to consume. We follow the American Kratom Association’s GMP Standards Program – a continuously improved quality standard for Dietary Supplements.
