Kratom has become increasingly popular due to its exceptional benefits, particularly as a natural wellness dietary supplement. One question that all kratom beginners find challenging to answer is how much kratom they should take. In this blog, we provide you with the necessary information to determine your ideal serving size.

Factors to Consider for Kratom Serving Size

Due to the distinct alkaloid compositions of kratom leaves, the effects can vary with each use. It is crucial to prioritize safety by choosing only lab-tested high-quality kratom for consumption and measuring serving sizes based on the Mitragynine percentage in the kratom powder. Now, let’s delve into the key factors to consider when using kratom.

Body weight and metabolism

Due to individual biochemistry, the effects of kratom vary from person to person. Depending on your body weight, the serving size may need slight adjustments. Higher body weight may require a higher serving size for the same effects. If you have an active metabolism, the effects may relatively be quicker. On an empty stomach, the effects can be even stronger.

Tolerance level

The effects of kratom may not be felt as expected if you have a high tolerance level. High tolerance levels can be due to regular use of kratom. As a kratom beginner, you should assume a lower tolerance level for yourself when taking your first serving and start with less. To reset your tolerance level, try taking a break from kratom for a few days, or gradually lower your serving size each time you take kratom.

Desired effects

The unique alkaloid profile of kratom gives it a range of benefits from stimulating and uplifting to deeply relaxing effects. Lower kratom serving sizes are known for energizing effects while higher serving sizes are known for soothing relaxation. Depending on your desired effects you might want to dial up or dial down your serving sizes. 

Strain Strength

Not all kratom is equal and the alkaloid profile can vary in strains and different batches of the same strain. This natural variation can also affect the density of the kratom powder. The higher the alkaloid percentage or the density of the kratom powder, the less you have to take.

At Super Speciosa, we separate and grade high-quality kratom based on batches and lab-tested alkaloid profiles. Our Signature Reserve is guaranteed the highest Mitragynine percentage. The Maeng Da’s are the next highest, followed by the milder Bali, Green Malay, and White Thai strains. 

This provides our customers with more consistency and a clearer understanding of what they are purchasing. For more information, read the truth about kratom strains.

Weighing your kratom powder vs. using a measuring spoon

Weighing your kratom powder is the best way to measure your serving sizes. As the kratom powder can vary in its density, using a spoon to determine the amount of kratom may not be precise. In this case, a digital scale is recommended. For consumers without a digital scale, 1 teaspoon roughly equals 2.4 grams of kratom powder.

General Kratom Serving Size Guidelines

Super Speciosa’s recommended serving is 2.4 grams of kratom powder per serving. This is roughly equal to 1 teaspoon, 5 kratom capsules, or 8 kratom tablets. This is a moderate serving size for both beginners and experienced kratom consumers. Depending on whether you want stimulating or relaxing effects, the serving size can be lowered or increased. 

How often should I take kratom? We recommend that you do not take more than two serving sizes within 24 hours. A second serving size should only be taken once the prior effects can no longer be felt.

When determining the sweet spot for yourself, trial and error is the best approach. Start with a low serving size and observe the effects of kratom. Do they feel just right for your desired effects or milder? Make sure your body has taken the kratom well and has not caused any adverse effects. 

Taking medical guidance from a healthcare professional is always recommended before first-time kratom consumption. Once you are sure kratom is good for your body, you can adjust the serving size for yourself for stronger or milder effects.

Remember not to exceed your serving size too much as heavy use of kratom can lead to unintended side effects such as nausea, drowsiness, constipation, itchiness, headache, frequent urination, or weight loss. Super Speciosa also doesn’t recommend kratom use as a medication for opioid withdrawal symptoms or chronic pain relief.

What to do if the kratom is not as effective as before?

When you feel kratom is no longer having the same effects, it is most likely that you have developed a tolerance. In this case, taking a tolerance break for a few days is recommended. Some kratom consumers also like to reduce their serving size known as tapering to restore the effects of kratom. Another alternative is to try a different strain to switch things up a little. This can also help make your kratom experience enjoyable.
