What is Kratom?

It is a native tree from Southeast Asia which includes Thailand, Malaysia, Borneo, Indonesia, and many others. It has a botanical name, Mitragyna speciosa. It is related to the common coffee tree which is known as Rubiaceae as they come from a similar family.  

How is it taken?

Within the region of its origin, the kratom leaves mostly are chewed when fresh that is after the removal of the fibrous central vein. Those dry leaves can as well get chewed, however, because they seem a little hard, a number of individuals alternatively crush them while others powder them in order to swallow them with ease. The kratom in powder form can also be mixed up with water which then can be drunk. This is the easiest and quickest method. The powder can as well be combined with different liquids like fruit juice, kefir or milk. Chocolate milk serves the purpose of masking the flavor.

The powdered kratom as well can be formed to a paste which can with ease be consumed with water. Powdered kratom can as well be combined together with yogurt or applesauce. It as well can be formed to being capsules. The leaves of dried kratom mostly are prepared to a tea which gets strained and becomes ready to drink. It is possible to smoke Kratom; however, it is not practical to do this as the quantity of leaf which comprises a normal dose is a lot to be easily smoked. You can prepare an extract similar to the resin through evaporation of the water you get from the kratom tea and you can preserve it to use it later. You can swallow the small kratom pellets from the extract, or you can dissolve them in very hot water then taken as a tea. A number of individuals enjoy mixing the kratom tea together with black tea that is common, or with different herbal teas, ahead of taking it.  People do this in order to make kratom tastier. You can use sugar as well as honey to make it sweet.

How does one prepare a powdered kratom SLURRY for drinking?

  1. Slowly put the kratom which is powdered into a glass of water, though you can preferably use a different beverage. If it is for a normal kratom dosage, use about seven grams, and a cup with water of about eight ounces.
  2. Stir systematically until all the powder becomes fully suspended; swallow it faster before it gets to settle down. The experience is similar to that of taking a sour-tasting, fairly fibrous smoothie.
  3. Put in additional water into the glass so as to remove all the material that could have stuck on the sides of the glass. You can use a half cup of water; however, there is no harm in using more of it.
  4. Stir once more and then drink.
  5. After you are done with everything, you can take fruit juice which will help you do away with the sour taste. You can as well use a flavored mint chewing gum as it may serve the purpose too.

 How does one measure dosage?

Scaling is a better way of measuring a dose. As a normal kratom dosage contains a number of grams, you should preferably utilize the scale which might measure up to one gram and is exact to slightest one-tenth of a gram. The cost-effective, very correct, modernized scales are all over in the stores and buying yourself one is worth it because it is durable and can help you in a lot of different things apart from measuring kratom. They are available at Sage Wisdom Botanicals, and also different suppliers.

If you measure kratom using its volume, the results may be less correct compared to measuring using weight, the reason is that the amount that a provided volume has is dependable on how thinly ground the substance is. Apparently, a teaspoon with kratom that is finely powdered weighs more compared to a teaspoon containing a not finely crushed or roughly ground leaves. Below are some rough guidelines. Normally one teaspoon of a lot of kratom for sale that is finely powdered weighs around two grams, for kratom powder that is extremely fine it can weigh about 2.25 grams. And because there exist three teaspoons in a tablespoon, it implies that a tablespoon of kratom that is finely powdered weighs on a standard scale of at least six to seven grams. This is a middle-sized kratom dosage of average strength that is perhaps a strong dosage for kratom with a high-potency or a gentle dosage for kratom with a low-potency.

Caution: Individuals have different sensitivity to this herb, and kratom obtained from various sources may differ in its effectiveness and at times may be so much, thus the dose estimate can be considered as rough calculations. You ought, to begin with, a lower dosage whenever you decide to try a brand new set of kratom. You can enhance the dosage slowly with continued experiments till you get the intensity of effects which you desire.

Avoid taking a strong, or a very strong dosage, if you are experimenting a current set of kratom for the first time. Many individuals get nauseated if they use a very strong dosage. Those people who are sensitive experience nausea even at a lower dosage. That is why it is advisable to use a strong dosage of kratom when your stomach is empty meaning that you should take kratom after three hours of consuming food. Other individuals are hypersensitive to kratom, so they might experience unfavorable reactions like extreme and continued vomiting if they use a dose which is very strong.

What is the duration of kratoms effects?

Normally the effects you may experience from using kratom lasts for about five to six. If you take it when your stomach is empty, you will experience the first effects usually half an hour or forty minutes after consumption. An instance when you have a full stomach, the effects may be felt after an hour or ninety minutes. If you take kratom capsules that is vegetarian or gelatin, the beginning effects may take more time, since a lot of time is needed so that the capsules can be dissolved in your stomach.

What are the risks? How safe is it?

If kratom is consumed exclusively without combining it with different drugs, the highest risk maybe getting to sleep even when engaging in dangerous activities. Do not drive after taking kratom, it doesn’t matter whether you are stimulated, or not feeling like sleeping, sleepiness may strike without knowing. Make use of your senses, and avoid using power equipment or climbing ladders after using kratom. You should be cautious, never leave a pot on a cooker which is on and sleeps.

Expectant women must avoid using any medicines or drugs not unless they are prescribed by a medical doctor. As no study exists of the risk involved in the use of kratom by expectant women, we are not aware if there could be risks of fatal deaths or birth defects. So our recommendation is that expectant moms should shun from using kratom.

Is kratom habit forming?

It is not addictive if its usage is done with care. Using it infrequently as a leisure time drug, instead of using it regularly reduces the risk of being dependable on the drug. However, you should avoid using it on a daily basis. This is because kratom, just like most drugs such as alcohol, tobacco, coffee, when you get so much used to them breaking the addiction becomes difficult. Ahead of using it, you should lay down some guideline of its use. Whenever you get it being difficult following the guidelines, you should instantly stop its usage. Although individuals making use of kratom to beat addiction with opiate require to use it on a daily basis to keep away from opiate withdrawal.

Individuals with chronic pain require to use pain medications daily, and a number of individuals prefer using kratom rather than the pharmaceutical pain relievers. Researchers have discovered that opiate drugs such as morphine and those related to it seldom cause addiction to pain sufferers apart from those individuals who have a history of drug abuse. It is as well true when it comes to kratom, since similar to opiate drugs, those effects caused by kratom are because of the opiate receptor agonist activity.

Is it possible to develop tolerance to kratom?

You can develop tolerance to kratom. Just like most drugs, when you use kratom daily you will at some point become tolerant to the effects it has and you will regularly require increasing the dosage so as to get similar levels of effects. Developing tolerance cannot be achieved if kratom is used infrequently that is less than two times a week. This is because the active elements found kratom is known as opioid receptor agonists, thus making it possible for cross-tolerance with different opioid drugs. It implies that individuals with tolerance to some opioid drugs have to use kratom dosage that is higher compared to individuals that have not developed any tolerance. However, tolerance does not last for long. Ordinary sensitivity continues following some weeks of moderation.


I have heard that the potency and quality of kratom’s effects are correlated with the color of the central leaf vein. Is that true?

The inner leaf vein has a color that varies from different green colors to different red colors. What determines this is fairly the genetics; however, it as well differs regarding on the level that the leaf has matured, the amount of sunlight that each tree gets, and various factors of the environment. One tree can consist of leaves that have pale green, red veins, and dark green. Normally, you will get to see that the leaves that have not matured consist of red veins, however, the red shade fades away when the leaves get to mature, thus they change to green. In due course, the leaves lose color to yellow, and eventually brown. While this leaves cycle goes throughout these different colors until they come to maturity, they may all be seen on one tree at a similar time. Apparently, during harvesting, you can choose a specific color of the leaves. A number of trees fail to bring forth leaves with the red color, thus it might be a genetically changeable characteristic. No constant connection has been seen among vein color, the effectiveness or kind of effects experienced. It seems that most of these connections are regularly marketing publicity made-up by kratom sellers. We have seen some differences in potency among various batches of leaves; however, these dissimilarities have no connection with color in any constant way. While the effects experienced after using kratom differs on the basis of dose, dissimilarity in effectiveness causes a weak set of leaves to appear to have dissimilar effects compared to a stronger set, if similar quantities of the two get contrasted.


Is kratom use detected on drug tests?

Even though kratom does have alkaloids which connect them to opiate receptors, in structure, they are not related to opiate drugs thus cannot be identified using the opiate drug experiments. Detecting the alkaloids found in Kratom in the body fluids is possible; however, because kratom is legalized in many places, no testing is actually done. This might not be the case, particularly when kratom happens to be a controlled substance in the U.S.
