The popularity of Kratom has resulted in the proliferation of numerous different Kratom products, and it can perhaps be overwhelming for new users to figure out how to use all of the different products. That being said, have no fear, since the below guide written by the experts at Amazing Botanicals explains how to use Kratom, whether you’re using powder, capsules, or extracts.
How To Use Kratom Powder
The most popular form of Kratom is Kratom powder, since it has the fullest spectrum of effects and it is the cheapest, with a cost of just $75/kilo on Amazing Botanicals if you use the code DECEMBER. However, powder is quite bitter, and it can be difficult to take it if you don’t know the proper techniques.
Toss N’ Wash
By far the most common way to take powder is toss n’ wash, where the powder is taken with a spoon and then quickly washed back with a drink.
In order to perform a proper toss n’ wash you should level out a teaspoon of powder. The keyword here is level teaspoon, since if the teaspoon is heaping with powder it will be hard to take.
Once you got your level teaspoon of powder, put the powder into your mouth between the tongue and the roof of your mouth and hold it there. It is essential to not let the powder go all over your mouth, and to not dump it into your mouth, since that could create a nauseating experience.
After that, quickly wash back the powder with a drink. The best drink to use is orange juice, and in particular real orange juice that is not from concentrate. Other drinks may suffice, but orange juice is the best at negating the bitter flavor.
That’s all there is to toss n’ wash! It may take some practice to get the technique right, but once you master the technique it is one of the best ways to take Kratom.
Mixing Kratom Powder With A Drink Or Food
Another common technique for taking powder is to mix it into a drink, or mix it into a food like apple sauce or honey. Personally I can’t handle this technique, since no matter what you mix powder with the taste is still extremely bitter, but apparently a lot of people have success with this technique so it is worth mentioning.
A lesser-known technique for taking powder is to put it into an oblate disc, which is essentially a thin piece of plastic that encapsulates the powder, allowing it to be quickly washed back by drinking some water. That being said, although this technique is gaining popularity, it is somewhat of a choking hazard, since oblate discs have been known to break, which causes the powder to get caught all over the throat.
How To Use Kratom Capsules
Kratom capsules are designed for convenience and don’t require any special technique to take them. Simply take them like any other capsule using the drink of your choice. The only catch is that it requires a lot of capsules to achieve a significant dose of Kratom, and therefore in many cases it is easier to do toss n’ wash rather than capsules. That being said, many people cannot stand the taste of powder, and capsules are certainly the best option for such people.
How To Use Kratom Extracts
Extracts are the most convenient form of Kratom, and are the best choice if you want to quickly take your dose without any hassle. Whereas a strong dose of Kratom requires 7-10 grams of powder, equivalent to 11-16 capsules, with extracts a strong dose can be achieved with just a couple of tiny Kratom extract tablets, or a single Kratom Shot.
The only thing to note with extracts is that is important to get the dosage right. Kratom leaf on average contains 10-15 mg of Mitragynine, and therefore in order to calculate dosage, simply divide the Mitragynine content of the extract by 10-15. For example, an extract shot with 90 mg of Mitragynine contains the equivalent of 6-9 grams of Kratom leaf.
