If you think finding the right Kratom dosage is easy, think again. Determining the right amount of dosage could be very tricky since there are a lot of types of Kratom found in the market today. Not only do multiple Kratom types like Malaysian, Deep Jungle, Red Veined, Green Veined and so forth but also multiple names for the same product exists nowadays. These only add further confusion to the Kratom user who is trying to find out about the right dose for his Kratom need. Consumers should also take note that the strength and purity of the product may vary from one vendor to another since it is still unregulated. An unregulated product connotes a non-standardized quality control. In this case, a normal dose of 5 grams of Kratom leaf or powder bought from vendor A may already lead to lightheadedness or nausea when used for the Kratom bought from vendor B. Lightheadedness or nausea indicates an overdose of the product.
To avoid overconsumption it is best to start with small amounts, adding little by little if the current dose is still not enough. A little overdose may already lead to lightheadedness, headaches, nausea or vomiting, so be cautious with your estimates. Also, avoid purchasing Kratom in the form of tea since it further complicates the process of finding the right Kratom dosage. It is much easier to control the dosage if the product is bought in its powdered form or capsule form. The powdered form can even be mixed with any drink to drown out its strong bitter taste.
The Kratom herb has become well-liked by many people due to its effectiveness in providing chronic pain relief and managing depression related symptoms. In order to enjoy its optimum potential it is important that the product is taken in proper amounts. The easiest way in getting the right dosage is purchasing Kratom in its capsule form since the amount of herb present in the capsule has already been carefully measured. But since other forms like tea and powder could also be found in the market, it is best to take the mentioned safety measures in finding just the right amount of dosage. Teaspoons and tablespoons may be used in regulating dosage amounts but aside from these, digital scales could also be used to measure Kratom dosage. According to some of the product consumers, teaspoon and tablespoon measurement are only advisable for part-time Kratom users. For those who purchase Kratom from different vendors and use the product on a regular basis, it is best to utilize a digital scale.
Have you ever wondered about the actual effects of the perfect Kratom dosage? With all the Kratom forms such as Kratom powder, Kratom leaf, Kratom tea, and Kratom capsule, how would you know about the most relevant dosage? Kratom comes in different forms, in different strains and from different countries hence the Thai Kratom, Malaysian Kratom, Indo Kratom, White Vein kratom, Green Vein Kratom, and so on. These Kratoms may not only vary in their consistency but also in their effects. The different strains have slightly different effects such as the more energetic effect of the White Vein Kratom or the more opiate effect of the Red Vein Kratom. The dosage for each Kratom type as a result varies because of these.
One Kratom tree can be five to ten times stronger than other Kratom trees, which is why there is no established Kratom dosage. To address this difficulty, Kratom Connoisseurs have developed a Kratom Infusion, which takes away the variability and makes use of the best Kratom found. According to them, the secret in finding the best dosage is considering the age of the tree, with older trees having higher alkaloid contents. Kratom infusion uses a 2g dose in Kratom Infusion Tea Bags. This dosage is based on the principle that Kratom leaves or powdered leaves are approximately active at the 2g level. Since the active threshold falls around 2g, an amount of 2g-3g is a good testing ground if the consumer is trying a new strain or buying from a different vendor .Unfortunately, this only applies to crushed leaves and powdered leaves. It doesn’t include the extracts or the otherwise enhanced Kratom forms.
Kratom is used both as a stimulant and depressant. In general, small doses give a stimulating effect while larger doses produce a more sedating effect. Kratom dosage is regulated depending on the need of the consumer. At a low dosage, Kratom gives an individual more physical energy and alertness. Some users also claim a sense of well being and increased sensuality. As for a high dosage, Kratom makes an individual less sensitive to physical and emotional pain. To avoid over consumption of Kratom which usually leads to headache, nausea and vomiting, it is highly recommended to start off from small doses. The knowledge on the 2g active threshold is most helpful in this regard. Like other drugs, Kratom can have different effects on different people. It can also produce negative effects such as constipation, sweating, appetite loss, dry mouth, increased urination and nausea. A heavy dose of Kraton can even result to prolonged sleep so be careful with its dosage.
Let me ask you a simple question, do you know the right Kratom dosage for pain relief? You must have heard a lot of people asking things about Kratom and pain relief a hundred times already. But really, how much should one take to achieve their desired result? Here’s a tip to help you find just the right amount of Kratom to deal with your pain.
On the average, non-enhanced Kratom dosage starts to be active at a low dose of 2g-3g. This is around 1 ½ teaspoon of Kratom powder. A tablespoon or 5g-8g of Kratom powder is the middling dose while high doses amounts to over 8g which is a tablespoon and a teaspoon of the powder. These measures are only related to non-enhanced Kratom such as Bali Kraton, Malaysian Kraton, Thai Kraton, and Indonesian Kraton. The active level is a large amount lower in stronger strains and enhanced Kraton like Maeng Da, UEI and so forth, which means that less amounts of Kratom should be taken with these strains in order to avoid overconsumption. To address pain-related problems, a first-time Kratom user who does not have tolerance for opiates should start at a 2g dosage. Sensitive individuals or those that were able to purchase a more potent Kratom may find that 2g is too much already thus a lesser dose may be opted. But if an individual is currently taking weak narcotic painkillers in lower levels, then he/she may start from a 3g-5g dosage of the product. On the other hand, if an individual is already taking strong narcotics or opiate painkillers such as Percocet then he/she would have to take larger amounts of Kratom in order to obtain the desired result since there is a cross tolerance between these drugs.
Now start putting these together and formulate the right Kratom dosage for your pain-relief needs. With a bit of luck this will guide you in managing your own Kratom pain relief dosage. But put in mind that these guidelines are only estimates and that it doesn’t apply to extracts or enhanced Kratom strains. Kratom extracts and the stronger strains are already active at half a gram or less of the product. A 1g intake of these strains may already be considered an overdose and may lead to an unwanted headache, nausea and vomiting. Remember to always start with small amounts as you can always add an extra amount if it’s not enough. For pain relief, some users recommend the Bali Kratom at a 3g dosage.
Kratom leaves have long been used as an herbal drug by Southeast Asian locals. Its uses extend from being a recreational drug, stimulant, sedative, pain killer to treatment for opiate addiction. But did you know that Kratom varies in strength significantly from one strain to another? It even varies considerably from one batch to another. So a Kratom user should first gauge the strength of the product by starting out in small amounts. The Kratom dosage largely depends on the tolerance or sensitivity of the user to the herb.
The Kratom leaf and the powder forms that are available in the market are usually classified as Organic Commercial Grade, Premium Grade, Super Grade, or Enhanced Grade. The Organic Commercial Grade is the least potent type with a Kratom dosage of 5-30 grams of dried leaf. On the other hand, the dosage for Premium Grade Kratom ranges from 2-15 grams, 2-8 grams for the Super Grade, and 1-5 grams for the Enhanced Grade. A lot of vendors may not label their products according to this classification due to the non-standardized potency of their products but usually the ones that are mostly found in the market nowadays are the Premium and Super Grade products. Low levels of dosage usually produce a stimulating effect while high doses produce sedative effects. Mild stimulant effects are observed within 2-6 grams dosage of Kratom. On the other hand, 16-50 grams yields strong sedative-euphoric-analgesic effects, which may already be too strong especially for sensitive people. At the stimulant level, an increase in alertness and physical energy is observed. As for the sedative-euphoric-analgesic level, the user becomes less sensitive to any physical or emotional pain. They may even experience a pensive-like trance. This state is somewhat similar to the effects of using narcotics and opiates. It lasts for about six hours, depending on how high the dosage taken is. Higher doses produce stronger and longer effects.
Kratom potency greatly varies among Kratom strains and batch. Also, Kratom sensitivity varies among people so the given dosage estimates should be taken only as rough calculations. It is still best take in low doses on the first attempt, gradually increasing the Kratom dosage as needed. An overconsumption of Kraton, which usually occurs at doses above 25 grams for most people, leads to unpleasant experiences such as nausea and vomiting. Sensitive individuals may even experience adverse reactions like persistent and prolonged vomiting. Pregnant women are greatly discouraged from Kratom use.
