How do I take Kratom?

There are many ways to take kratom, but the most popular is the “toss and wash”. You can also make kratom tea and consume it that way. To learn more about this check out our guide.

How much Kratom should I consume?

This is different for everyone. What we’ve notice is that the kratom dosage is usually based on the individual’s height. I am 5’8″ and my dosage is around 2 – 3 grams and my brother who is 5’4″ is around .5- 1.5 grams.

This isn’t always true so to start out, you should take a gram and add .5 grams every 15 minutes until you feel the effects.

Kratom taste disgusting! What can I do to solve this?

There are a lot of ways to solve this issue.

First you can try the cold brew method to making kratom tea which makes the drink less bitter and more easy to consume.

Or you can mix it in to these drinks.

My stomach gets upset when I consume Kratom?

Our best idea for solving this is to eat yogurt daily to help improve your digestive health.

What can I expect from Kratom?

The effects of Kratom is subtle, but you will know when the effects kick in. Don’t expect all your problems to magically disappear with Kratom. What will happen is relief of pain, relaxation, calmness, a happier mood, reduce anxiety, increase productivity.

Can Kratom relieve pain?

Yes, depending on the strain of kratom (slow strain) that you consume and the amount (3+ grams), you will be able to relieve your pain by a lot.

Can I use Kratom to increase productivity?

Yes, take the fast strain for increase energy and productivity.

Can Kratom help with my anxiety?

Yes, this is one of the most noticeable effect of Kratom. We recommend the slow and moderate strains for this.

Im in sports, will it be okay to take Kratom?

We had a friend that took Kratom while he was on the college track team and he had no problems. Although we are pretty sure that it won’t be detected on the drug test, it is best to do further research on it.

Is it safe to drive while on Kratom?

If your a beginner then this isn’t recommended.

    Hey Guys, great site and always enjoy your vids! Anyway, I’m wondering if and how often you guys take a break or washout from Kratom? Unfortunately, my tolerance is quite high at the moment and the times I’ve tried tapering have been difficult…I’ve tried stem and vein (gave me anxiety), but wondering if there are any suggestions or supplements that you guys have used to help take a break and reset tolerance? Thanks again and keep up the good work on spreading the love of this life changing herb!

      Hey Jae, Thank you! We take a break every 2-3 months, that’s usually when we run out of Kratom too. Where are you getting your Stem&vein from? How much are you taking? You can try Kava, but we suggest Stem&Vein cause it’s literally Kratom too and the safest washout. If nothing has been working, then you may have to take a week off cold turkey, it’s definitely hard, but not impossible to do.

    Hi, thank you for the insight & sharing your tips.
    Going cold turkey has been hard whenever I’ve tried it. About how long will I experience withdrawal symptoms? Is it mainly about 3 to 4 days and then just small lingering effects after that?
    Any insight would be very much appreciated.
    Thank you!

    • Ben Nguyen June 7, 2017, 4:11 pm

      Hey Kerrie, going cold turkey you will experience symptoms of runny nose, maybe get tired often. We suggest you get stem & vein and take it for a week straight while on your break and you will not experience any withdrawal. Apologies for the late reply to this I have been busy with life and have neglected checking comments.

    Hi guys, I just found your website by chance and I see it’s been a while since you’ve posted. Are you both still using kratom and has your tolerance remained so low since your last posts? Curious to see if you have any insights as the time has passed. Hope all is well and thanks for the nice info!
