Whether you’re an experienced kratom user or a beginner, you are probably curious to find out the best way to take kratom powder. This super-guide by Super Speciosa is here to give you all the proven ways kratom powder can supercharge your wellness routine.
By now, you’ve probably heard your friends raving about the energizing effects of kratom powder as it is a natural product from a tropical evergreen tree, Mitragyna speciosa. This tree can be found in Souteast Asian countries such as Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, and Papua New Guinea, and is also known as ketum by some locals.
The use of kratom by the indigenous people of Southeast Asia has long been proven to have these effects:
Energy and focus – White and green vein strains enhance daily productivity by improving energy levels and focus and can have stimulant effects. It is psychoactive like caffeine, just without the jitters.
Relaxation and sleep – Red vein strains can be very effective in helping you relax, relieve stress and give you a good night’s sleep
Kratom contains alkaloids like mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine which are responsible for these effects. Although kratom is not classified as an opiate, it works by binding to the opioid receptors in the body.
How to Take Kratom Powder
Kratom has a strong earthy taste and some kratom lovers even call it an acquired taste. But since there are plenty of ways to take kratom powder, you can easily choose the one you like.
Mix Kratom Powder with Water
If you are looking for the simplest and quickest way to take kratom powder, simply mix it with water. This method is the most common but might be hard to get down if you struggle with the earthy taste of kratom. Kratom may cause dehydration and constipation, so this method is great to relieve some of its side effects. Whether you decide to take kratom by mixing it with water or not, its very important to continue to stay hydrated throughout the day before and after your serving.
Toss and Wash Kratom Powder
The toss and wash is another quick technique. All you need to do is toss the kratom powder in your mouth with the help of a spoon and wash it down with your favorite non-carbonated beverage, like orange juice.
This might be challenging to master for beginners because you need to make sure you are not inhaling any of the powder until you wash it down with your drink. If you still want to toss and wash kratom powder, break down your serving sizes for a much easier intake.
Kratom Powder Tea
If you are a tea lover, making kratom tea from kratom powder is a great way to mask the bitter flavor.
Simply add hot water to a cup with kratom powder. Some kratom users find this method even more stimulating with enhanced euphoric mood effects.
Pro tip: Use a coffee filter or sieve to catch any leftover residue.
Another trick for even more potent tea is to squeeze some lemon juice to break down alkaloid compounds. You can also use sweeteners to make it taste like your perfect cup of tea.
Juices & Smoothies
If you like cold beverages like milkshakes, fixing yourself a blended smoothie or mixing kratom powder in a cocktail can be a go-to choice. The sweet flavors of the fruit or added sweeteners like almond milk or vanilla soy milk can be a game-changer with bitterness.
We know mixing kratom powder in food sounds ambitious. But we assure you, kratom can be effectively potent with your daily nutrition without any cooking or baking.
Consider it with your morning meals like yogurt, oatmeal, or applesauce with a touch of lemon and have a kickstarting experience.
You can wrap your kratom serving in an edible film and parachute it down into the stomach like any other pill. If you have access to homemade capsules, that can also be an effective bitterless way to take the herbal kratom powder.
How much Kratom Powder should I take?
The right way to experience the benefits of kratom depends on many factors but here are a few rules of thumb when it comes to serving sizes.
New to kratom? Start small. You can always gradually increase your serving size to your liking.
Less is more. Smaller servings are much more stimulating and energizing than taking larger servings.
Take a tolerance break. If you are a long-term user experiencing diminishing kratom effects, it might be best to go without your daily friend for a while.
We recommend no more than two servings of 2.4 grams each in 24 hours. Large serving sizes can have sedating effects. For a detailed take, see Super Speciosa’s ‘sweet spot’ serving size guide
