Lack of sleep, a lot of people may have this problem. First of all, I do not have any serious sleeping disorder, but I have developed a habit of little sleep while spending a majority of my time in college.

It wasn’t just because of the loads of late night studying and waiting until the last minute to get things done.

Another problem was that I had roommates that lived the party life. Music was always blasting, people yelling, and a lot of smoke that even got into my room.

After that year, my lease was over and I never looked back. I moved in with my brother and his roommates for my last semester at the university.

The funny thing was that my brother’s roommates were just as loud as any other college apartment. I hated having roommates.

I knew that I had the option to move out and keep searching for better roommates, but I was too much of a nice guy who didn’t complain or try to speak up. It was foolish of me, and now thinking back I would have done a lot of things differently.

I also didn’t have enough money to rent a one person apartment or a studio. Living with roommates was cheap for only $399, and I couldn’t pass that up.

Don’t get me wrong, I would love to party too and sometimes would join them every once in awhile, but not 24/7. A lot of college parties aren’t what they seem. A lot of times it’s just a bunch of “bro dudes” with loud music, unless you’re in a frat, then there’s always girls around to make it more interesting 🙂

Enough of my ranting and onward to Kratom and sleep.

Why Should Use Kratom For Sleep

Kratom is probably one of the best supplement to use for sleep if you’re new to it. For beginners, kratom will usually make them feel sleepy after consuming it. There will also be lingering after effects that makes you feel very calm and relax.

As you know, the fast strain makes you energetic and social, the medium strain makes you happy and calm, and the slow strain makes you relax and sleepy.

For beginners who want to use it for sleep, it doesn’t matter which strain they take because the result will always be a strong feeling of sleepiness after the effects have faded away.

As the body readjust and gets more use to kratom, the user will have to eventually start picking out specific strains to get the desired effects and in this case the slow strain would be the best choice.

The slow strain relaxes you’re body, calms your mind, and make you a little tired which is all the right conditions for you to fall asleep.

It also makes you feel rejuvenated in the morning because you will have really good sleep from the kratom.


Is Kratom Better For Sleep Than Nyquil?

I know that a lot of people use Nyquil to help them fall asleep, and some might even use it on a daily basis. The problem I see with this is that they’ll eventually build up a tolerance to Nyquil and need to take higher dosages that can really harm the liver due to the amount of Acetaminophen which is present in Tylenol.

Acetaminophen can cause liver damage from the excessive use or using products that contain this substance at a higher dosage such as Tylenol and Nyquil.

With Kratom, you have the option to rotate it at the same dosage to get you right to bed. Also, since Kratom is a natural plant and not a man-made substance, it does yields more health benefits without doing harm to your vital organs.

There is no doubt that I believe you should stop using off-the-counter drugs as a sleeping aid and choose to substitute it with Kratom. It will be more beneficial to you in the long run!


Utilizing Kratom For Sleep

Kratom can be used for sleeping and it does quite a good job.

I always find myself on the phone going through social media or on YouTube. Eventually after some hours later I look at the time and it’s usually midnight or later.

Kratom can help you sleep, but it also takes some discipline from you too.

You need to:

  1. Set up a time when you would like to go to bed and get to bed 15-30 minutes earlier.
  2. Put all devices away.
  3. Take a slow or moderate strain of Kratom.

If you fail to complete first two steps, Kratom will most likely not put you to sleep unless you go over your recommended dosage which will sedate you and you will definitely fall asleep. This method however might give you some side effects such as nauseousness and headaches.

If you want to be sedated by kratom then you should take 1 – 2 grams more than you’re recommended dosage.

Ex. If your dosage is 2 grams then you should take 4 grams to feel the sedation.


Dosage: How Much Kratom For Sleep

For me I usually would take my normal dosage of 1.5 grams. I know some of you are shocked by this ridiculously low dosage. I feel thankful and blessed because I don’t run out of Kratom too quickly.

If you’ve already taken Kratom in the morning, then take a slightly higher dosage for bed time. By slight higher I mean .5 gram or 1 gram higher.

This will take some experimenting to find the right dosage for you to have a good sleep.

First, try out your normal dosage and see how it affects your sleep.

You can slightly up the dosage next time and see if it’s better, if not then go back to your normal dosage.

Avoid fast Kratom strains for sleep. I would recommend slow strains above any other strains. You can try moderate strain too, but slow will be best.


Kratom does wonders for my sleep, and I am sure it can help quite a few people who have the same problem.

To recap everything, If you’re trying to use Kratom for sleep, make sure that you have some discipline on your part too by having a bedtime and turning off all devices. Put your devices outside of your bedroom if you have to.

Good night all,



P.S: I would recommend trying these slow strains to aid you in your sleep: Snuggie Hippo, Sleepy Hippo, Pleasant Green Hippo, and Top Bali Hippo. These are the strains I primarily use for sleep and have had more than great results with them.
