Mixing Kratom and Alcohol: The Dangers and Risks

Updated: March 13, 2024

At Blue Diamond Herbs, we’re familiar with how kratom can offer help for various ailments. While some people may prefer chewing kratom leaves to boost their energy levels, boiling them to produce kratom tea is also common. Kratom can also be processed into kratom extracts, powder, or even packaged as capsules.

Whether processed or taken in its raw form, the effects of kratom depend on dosage and other individual characteristics such as weight and age. As such, mixing kratom and alcohol or any other substance may produce unwanted results and should be avoided whenever possible.

In this guide, we help you understand the effects as well as the dangers of mixing kratom and alcohol, as we also strive to educate you on the best practices when consuming kratom.

Effects of Mixing Kratom and Alcohol

Kratom and alcohol act as stimulants and are also known to produce a sedative effect on consumers. At the same time, it is not advisable to combine drugs and other substances with alcohol.

There are instances where people have mixed the two, and no adverse effects have been reported. However, one factor as to why this is not advisable is the risk that this may have to your central nervous system.

Dangers of Combining Kratom and Alcohol

Mixing kratom and alcohol could lead to an overdose, which may produce potentially harmful side effects.

Taking a combination of alcohol and kratom has been linked to potentially dangerous side effects such as:

  • Seizures
  • Hallucinations
  • Heart problems, including tachycardia and cardiac arrest
  • Coma
  • Hypertension
  • Kidney failure
  • Increased irritability

Most kratom-related deaths are often related to combining a kratom overdose with an overdose of other drugs or substances, including alcohol. If you need to enjoy kratom and experience its positive effects, consider taking it alone, and never combine it with alcohol or any other drug.

When picking a strain of kratom, it’s also important to rely on a provider that offers lab-tested and precise products. At Blue Diamond Herbs, we ensure the production of high-quality kratom powder that undergoes rigorous testing, providing you with the most convenient and reliable means of consumption. Focusing on our customer’s health, we test every batch, ensuring that any kratom products sold from us are of the highest quality.

Ways to Take Kratom

If you are new to kratom and are wondering how to consume kratom products safely, it is worth noting that you can enjoy kratom in various ways and reap the benefits.

Most people prefer mixing kratom extracts with a beverage of their choice. You can mix kratom with juice or tea and enjoy your drink. Many customers prefer our KRATOMade flavored kratom powders, for example.

If you’re looking for a more convenient way to enjoy kratom, we have kratom capsules that can be taken with water.

If you are looking for a method that allows faster absorption into the bloodstream, many consumers implement the sublingual method, where you briefly hold the kratom extract beneath your tongue before you swallow.

Whichever method you choose, ensure that you take kratom in moderation so you can enjoy its positive effects.
