Kratom is a unique botanical herb that can offer various effects. However, you want to make sure you’re consuming the right amount for your mind and body. When you find your ideal kratom dosage, you’ll find your experiences to be even more impactful. But, what is the right dose of kratom for you — and how do you find that out?
In our kratom dosage guide, you’ll find everything you need to know about dosing kratom, different types of kratom, and why proper dosing is so important. Let’s get started.
How Much Kratom Should I Take?
Before you start consuming your favorite kratom product, you should always take the time to ask yourself, “How much kratom should I take?” If you don’t consider dosing before consumption, you may find yourself having an unpleasant experience. After all, our bodies are going to react differently to different amounts of substances. Thus, considering dosage is crucial to having your best kratom experience possible.
As much as we’d love to say that there’s a one-size-fits-all perfect dose of kratom, there isn’t. Every consumer will find a unique amount of this herb that works best for them. With this in mind, you have to be a little patient. It may take some trial and error to find your ideal dose! But, with our help, you can start determining the best kratom product for you and what strength you should start with.
First, let’s start by breaking down how to calculate kratom dosing, and then we’ll look at the different types of products you can choose from — and how their potencies vary.
What’s the Best Dose of Kratom?
Once again, there is no “best” dose of kratom. Kratom is going to act differently within the body, giving people unique experiences based on personal doses. If you’re new to kratom, you will need to take a much smaller dose than someone who has tried it multiple times. Therefore, the doses will be different!
However, it is easy to calculate kratom doses and discover what may be best for you. In general, it’s recommended to always begin with a very small dose and see how your body reacts. Then, you can consume a bit more each time until you find an amount that makes you feel how you want. When increasing your kratom amount, you want to do so slowly and in small increments. Now, you’re probably wondering how someone goes about dosing kratom in the first place. Let’s explain.
How to Calculate Kratom Dosage
Kratom, like many other substances, is measured in grams. You’ll likely find products offering doses in milligrams, as well. If you have powdered kratom, you’ll find that a pure teaspoon of kratom powder equals about 2 grams. A tablespoon, then, comes out to about 6-7 grams. If you’re measuring your kratom powder this way, make sure you pay close attention to
Typically anything under 2 grams is considered a microdose. This is ideal for people who are getting into kratom and just want to experience mild effects. Microdosing is also great for consumption over time and ensuring that you consistently experience the effects of this great herb.
When you consume more than 2 grams, you’re having a moderate to a strong dose of kratom. Anything over 6 grams is considered quite strong and should only be consumed by the most experienced consumers. Again, most people stay in the 2 grams and under range, as this dose still produces wonderfully beneficial results. But, if you need something strong, you can increase your dose just a few milligrams at a time.
Best Kratom Dose for Energy & Focus
If you’re wanting to enjoy kratom for a boost of energy and focus, consumers find low to mild doses ideal for stimulation. Usually, the more kratom you consume, the more sedative the effects are going to be. Thus, staying around the 2 – 4 gram dose may be effective for giving you a nice dose of energy.
Kratom doses at this level can help you perform and function better daily. You’ll likely feel more focused and productive, allowing you to complete your to-do list without hesitation. But, do be aware that high doses may create the opposite effect. So, stick with a low dose of kratom — maybe around one gram — at first to see how this may affect you. Chances are, you’ll be feeling more stimulated and upbeat in no time.
Kratom Dosage of Different Products
When you’re trying to decide your ideal kratom dosage, you have to consider the types of products you’re consuming. Different products have different kratom concentrations, and they also function uniquely in the body. The way that the kratom breaks down — and the way you consume it — can directly affect the potency of the substance in the system. Thus, it’s important for us to establish the different kratom doses you find depending on your ideal product.
First and foremost, if you’re trying kratom in its powder form, you have to keep in mind the dosing guide we mentioned earlier. Only about one teaspoon is necessary for most doses, as that is already about two grams. If you’re new and consuming powder kratom, start with half (or even less than half) of a teaspoon. If this doesn’t create the effects you want, you know you can try a little bit more next time.
Because raw kratom powder is difficult to measure, you have to be extra careful when dosing. Always measure closely and use an accurate teaspoon. If you just eyeball it or use a spoon itself, this is going to create inaccurate doses and you may end up consuming more than you intend. Thus, be vigilant and pay attention to just how much kratom you’re putting in your teaspoon.
Recommended Kratom Shots Dosage
Kratom shots are something we’re proud to offer here at Topps Kratom. These are liquid shots of kratom that you drink as you would a wellness or energy shot. Each one of our kratom shots has two servings of kratom, so you can choose to either drink half or the whole shot depending on how strong of a dose you want to consume.
If you haven’t yet tried kratom, we’d suggest starting with just one serving and seeing how it works. Once you become more comfortable and build up a bit of a tolerance, you can drink the whole shot in one go. However, always do this with discretion and understanding of kratom’s potency. With kratom shots, your body gets a quick dose of liquid kratom that’s easily broken down. Compared to other products like capsules, this form of kratom will get to work quickly and last for several hours.
Recommended Kratom Capsules Dosage
At Topps Kratom, we offer high-quality, pure kratom capsules for you to enjoy. In our capsules, we pack each one full of 70 mg, making them the perfect dose for beginners and those looking to get comfortable with kratom. If you’re more experienced with kratom, you can take both capsules that our two-packs come with, giving you stronger effects. But, first-time consumers and those still new to kratom should try just one capsule.
Do keep in mind that kratom capsules may take a bit longer to take effect than other products. However, this doesn’t mean they’re any less potent! On the contrary, these kratom capsules are incredibly potent, offering a concentrated dose of kratom that you can consume on the go. This form of kratom is incredibly discreet, making them ideal for everyday use. But, just make sure you’re patient when waiting for effects! They will come — your body just has to break down the capsules first.
Recommended Dosage of Kratom Gummies
Dosing your kratom gummies is both easy and tasty. Our gummies come pre-infused with 10 mg of kratom in each, giving you a subtle yet beneficial experience with every bite. 10 mg is an ideal dosage to start with regarding gummies, as this concentrated dose of kratom can be quite intense.
If 10 mg isn’t enough for you, that’s okay! You can always consume another gummy to double your dose and get the strength you’re looking for. That’s one of the best things about kratom gummies: they’re delicious, so you won’t mind consuming another dose when needed. But, always remember how potent these candies can be! You don’t want to take too many just because they taste good.
How to Measure Your Kratom Dosage
When you’re measuring your kratom dosage, you want to make sure you pay close attention to the amount you’re using. If you are working with raw kratom powder, the best route to go is by using a digital scale. You can scoop out about a teaspoon of kratom and then place it on the scale to see how many grams you’ve collected. From there, you can add or subject your kratom powder depending on the strength of the dose you want to achieve.
When you buy products through Topps Kratom, you don’t have to worry much about measuring your own dose. Our products come pre-dosed and ready for you. So, with your gummies and capsules, you know exactly how much kratom you’re consuming every time. When having these, it may be best to mark down how much you consumed to keep track of your doses and discover what’s best.
With your kratom shots, measuring your dose is going to come down to how much you drink. If you only drink half of your shot, you’ve had one full serving. If you consume the whole thing, you’ve had two servings.
How Long Does Kratom Last?
The effects of kratom are going to last different amounts of time depending on a few factors such as age, body weight, amount of kratom you consumed, and genetics. In general, though, the half-life of kratom is around 24 hours. Thus, it’ll be close to five days before the substance is out of the system entirely. Depending on the product you consumed, you may feel the actual effects of your kratom for between 4 – 8 hours.
Studies show that kratom’s effects last longer within older populations than it does within younger populations. The body takes longer to break down the metabolites, struggling a bit more to flush them out of the system as the days go by. Thus, the half-life of kratom in an older person will be longer than that of a young person. Those with higher body weights will also have kratom in their system for longer than someone who has less fat. This is because of the substance’s fat-soluble composition.
How Much Kratom Is Too Much?
Taking too much kratom can be quite dangerous for a person. We promise — that you only need a small dose to help you feel your best. Do not try taking more than your body is used to.
