There are a few popular methods of using powdered leaf, but the most common are capsules or tablets,Toss and Wash, food mixing, and tea preparation. The following is a guide to help users find their favorite way to enjoy kratom:
Kratom Capsules and Tablets
Kratom capsules have become one of the most common ways people are using kratom. Pre-capsulated kratoms can be found in almost any head shop in the US, while some choose to buy empty 00 or 000 capsules and their kratom capsules for themselves.
It is important to note that 00 capsules are much better suited for kratom extract (because of the necessary dosage concentration of approximately 1/2 a gram to 1 gram).
Toss n’ Wash
“Toss and wash” is basically just spooning the powder directly into your mouth and washing it with a liquid. Kratom is known as a diuretic and associated with dehydration. It is important that you hydrate when using this method. This could be your favorite sports drink, or you could just stick to the water. The word hydrate comes from the Greek word water, so it’s hard to find a better hydrating drink.
This is commonly referred to as the most “difficult” method, but it is the quickest one in a pinch and is likely to have some of the strongest effects. The downside to this method is that the powder is incredibly dry and sticks to your mouth and throat, causing many to gag or cough the dry powder out of their mouths. If this method of consumption is used, it is best to spoon small amounts at a time.
Taking Kratom With Food
It’s always best to try taking kratom with food, not with an empty stomach. Especially for those who are newer to kratom, having a bunch of raw powder in your stomach without much else in it can cause discomfort and nausea. So, for the best results when taking kratom, we recommend that you take it with food-a snack or a whole meal.
Kratom Tea Preparation
It is important to note that only powdered leaf should be used for making tea. Extracts are not to be used. Start by measuring between 1 teaspoon of powdered leaf. It is not recommended to use an extract because hot water can break down some of the alkaloids, there is no added benefit, and it is more expensive. Boil 2 to 4 cups of water. The more water you use, the less powerful the taste, but as long as you drink it, all the effects will be exactly the same.
Put the kratom powder in a large cup or container with a pour lip and pour the boiling water over it. Stir until the mixture is thoroughly mixed. Be sure that there are no clumps of dry powder. I highly recommend adding sugar, artificial sweeter, or honey (honey works best to reduce bitterness) and stirring. If you use an artificial sweetener, 2 packets are a good starting amount. Let it sit until cool (at least 15 minutes), stirring occasionally.
Allow the powder to settle down to the bottom once cooled. Pour the tea into a cup of drink, and enjoy. You can add more sweetener to your taste at this point, or add water or ice cubes to dilute your taste. As long as you drink all the liquid, the effects will be the same.
