Kratom Uses & Preparation

There are several ways to use and prepare Kratom. We've tried to list as many as possible giving you all the education and choice you need. Remember not to use to much, especially for your first time. Kratom works best on an empty stomach; you should avoid eating food for 3 hours before your enjoy any of the methods below (apart from smoking kratom).

Traditional Method:

In Thailand, they take fresh kratom leaves and often chew them (usually after removing the stringy central vein). People who've visited Thailand (or other countries where Kratom grows naturally) say there is no way better than the natural way of the native peoples who use these leaves on a daily basis. If you want to chew fresh leaves without having to fly to a countries where this grows naturally, then buy a kratom plant. Kratom plants make great house plants but they need to mature before the leaves get potent. Dried leaves can also be chewed, but since they are a bit tough, most people prefer to crush them up or powder them so that they can be swallowed.

Kratom Toss n Wash Method:

This is best for extracts and powders and is LOT easier on the taste buds than kratom teas alike. Kratom Extracts tend to be small amounts as their strength per gram is higher. Powders tend to be higher in volume as they are simply powdered leaf.

The Toss n Wash method means tossing the kratom into your mouth and washing down with a liquid drink. A fruit juice with a high acidic content (grapefruit juice) will help bring on the effects much quicker, however any drink works fine.

Kratom Suspension Method

Another method is to put kratom powder in a bottle with some juice, shake it hard, then drink it down while it's still in suspension. You can also add Kratom powder to juice in a glass and stir with a spoon. Grapefruit juice is best.

Apple Sauce Method:

This method is preferred by those who want to mask the taste. Simply take the kratom and mix with apple sauce, eat quickly.

Kratom Capsules:

If you simply cannot stand the taste of kratom , then use capsules filled with kratom powder or kratom extracts. This way you get to eat Kratom without the product touching your tongue. There are kratom vendors who sell pre-filled capsules, or you can fill yourself by hand.

Kratom Tea:

We have a whole category on Kratom tea. Kratom tea can be prepared with Kratom Powder, Kratom Resin, Kratom Leaf or Kratom extracts... enjoy !

Smoking Kratom:

Smoking Kratom is not recommended. We have heard reports of people smoking the Kratom resin extract, but even that we are skeptical over. The amount of leaf to be smoked is too much to constitute a typical dose.

Cooking with Kratom:

Cooking food with Kratom is not common, although can be fun. As Kratom is generally considered to taste bad, Kratom Recipes should be orientated around strong flavor foods like curries or game stews. Find a recipe you like and add the required dose of powder, leaf or extracts.

Kratom Smoothies:

  • 1 fresh banana
  • Frozen Mango Pieces (or similar frozen fruit)
  • Mango Yogurt (or similar flavored yogurt)
  • 2 cups of fresh orange Juice
  • 6-10 grams of Thai Kratom Powder

Put the ingredients in a blender and you can guess the rest. The onset is a little slower than Kratom tea, but some say the effects last longer.

Kratom Doses & Kratom Potency

Kratom 15x Standardized Extract

Kratom 15x recommended minimum dose - 1 Gram, preferred 2-4 Grams.

( 1 Tablespoon = 10.4 Grams)

( 1 Teaspoon = 3.8 Grams)

If you don't know, start slow, you should begin to feel the effects after 20 minutes. If you don't feel much after the first hour, take some more.

- The Best Methods of Kratom Extract consumption includes the following, and are in order of most effective to least effective.

1. Kratom Tea - To get the biggest bang for your buck with the above mentioned Extracts, your best bet is to make tea. The easiest way is to fill up a coffee mug with water and microwave it to boil. The hotter the water the better it will completely dissolve. You could chase it with a citrus juice to help with the bitter taste and the sugars assist with fast delivery.

2. Kratom Mixed in Yogurt, Pudding, Apple Sauce or any other similar food you can think of. This method has gotten many good reviews and may very well be just as good as tea but again, this will vary from person to person. It's just another idea to try.

3. Kratom Capsules - Many have spoke negatively about capsules when it comes to 15x while others have reported that its just as good as tea. From what we have seen, the vast majority prefer tea over capsules. If you're trying to evaluate product quality from different vendors, compare apples to apples and administer the product the same way.

4. Smoking Kratom 15x - Yes, you could smoke the Kratom 15x extracts but due to the higher cost associated with them, most say it's kind of a waste. Not because it does not work, it's just a lot more effective when you use one of the above methods.

Kratom Resin

Sure there are different types of kratom resins out there but the most common kratom resin being sold today is with the familiar Kratom Extract Resin Pie. It is believed to be all from the same source and therefore of identical quality from one vendor to the next. These are actually made from Bali Premium commercial leaves but are much more potent than Premium Commercial grade because the resin is a lot more concentrated. Many report Kratom Resin Pies to be as strong at equal doses as Kratom 15x Standardized Extract.

Kratom Resin recommended minimum dose - 1.5 Grams, preferred 2-4 Grams. If you don't know, start slow, you should begin to feel the effects after 20 minutes. If you don't feel much after the first hour, take some more.

Best Methods of Kratom Resin consumption include the following. With this particular product there have been no reports to our knowledge that one method provides better results than another so the below list is not necessarily in order of most effective, they are all believed to be equally effective so take your pick.

Before you can begin with the following methods of consumption you will most likely have to soften the kratom pie by heating it up. Microwave (about 10 seconds), steam, toaster oven, hair dryer, what ever else you can think of. This will enable you to cut it with a knife or break off pieces with your hands.

1. Kratom Resin Suckers - Break off around 1.5 Grams and suck on it until it completely dissolves in your mouth. Some reported a licorice taste and actually called it tasty. One of the benefits to this method is fast absorption into the blood stream through the lingual glands, placing it under your tongue makes this work even better. If you're not crazy about the taste then just swallow it instead. It may take a little longer for you to feel the effects but most reported the same end result.

2. Kratom Resin Tea - Break off around 1.5 Grams and heat up a coffee cup full of any consumable liquid - works better if extremely hot in order to dissolve the resin.

3. Kratom Resin Capsules - You might ask how I would get resin into a capsule, and why I would even want to. What you do with it is totally up to you, but I have seen people powder the resin and then stuff capsules with the powder. To powder the resin you have to first heat the pie, roll the resin it to coffee bean sized balls, cool them down, and then put them in a coffee grinder. Alas, Kratom resin powder.

Thai Kratom Powder

- Kratom Powder recommended minimum dose - 2-3 Grams, preferred 4-10 Grams, strong 8-16 Grams.

( 1 Tablespoon = 6.6 Grams)

( 1 Teaspoon = 2.5 Grams)

If you don't know, start slow, you should begin to feel the effects after 20 minutes. If you don't feel much after the first hour, take some more.

- The Best Methods of Kratom Powder consumption includes the following,

1. Tea - You could mix Kratom Leaf or Kratom Powder in a boiling cup of water but the plant matter does not dissolve the extracts do so you will probably want to strain it a few times or use a tea bag. You could chase it with a citrus juice to help with the bitter taste and the sugars assist with fast delivery.

2. Kratom Mixed in Yogurt, Pudding, Apple Sauce or any other similar food you can think of. This method has gotten many good reviews and may very well be just as good as tea but again, this will vary from person to person. It's just another idea to try.

3. Kratom Capsules - We have not heard anything negative about capping a kratom powder. It can take a little longer for some brands of capsules (veggies caps etc) to dissolve.

4. Smoking Kratom - Not recommended. You would need a LOT of powder and therefore would be a waste.
