Kratom is known as a staple of natural medicine throughout many areas in Southeast Asia. History indicates that it’s been utilized for such purposes as far back as the 19th century, and in the modern-day, it’s emerged as a popular supplement for a range of different issues. If you’ve heard stories about the many benefits of kratom, and you’re curious to try it for yourself, you’ll need to know exactly how much to take. Your experience and the effects of kratom are dependent upon the dose you consume.
Read on for a comprehensive guide to accurately dosing your kratom.
Finding Your Ideal Kratom Amount
There are many factors that will determine what kratom dosage is right for you. Characteristics such as your height and weight may influence the effect achieved by dosage. Your individual tolerance level will, too — meaning that people who use kratom regularly may have a different experience than those who are new users. Generally speaking, anything below one dose is considered a microdose, and anything above six grams is not recommended unless recommended by a health care provider. Read this chart if you’re wondering how much kratom to take.

Kratom Tinctures Measurement & Ways to Take
Kratom is notable for being one of the most versatile natural substances that’s available. One of the many ways users can enjoy kratom is in tincture form, which is made from kratom powder and leaves. Many people prefer tinctures because they are particularly fast-acting compared to other forms of consumption. The measurement of kratom will vary based on the product you select, but most kratom tinctures offer about one gram per 1ml. It should then be consumed sublingually by placing it under your tongue and holding it for a few minutes.
Regular Kratom Measurement & Ways to Take
If you prefer regular kratom to tinctures, you can consume it straight from the source in powdered form. Unlike other natural supplements, kratom is typically consumed orally and not smoked. It has a distinctly earthy taste, and it is best consumed by adding it to another substance, such as juice, yogurt, or a smoothie. One tablespoon is typically equivalent to six to seven grams.
Kratom Capsules Dosage
Kratom capsules are often considered the most convenient way to consume the substance, and it’s also the easiest for controlling the dosage. In most cases, one capsule will contain one gram, though you should always verify the dosage by checking the packaging of your product. Capsules are consumed by simply swallowing with your drink of choice.
Kratom Drink Stick Pack Measurement
Kratom powder, tinctures, or capsules are no longer the only way to consume kratom. No more dealing with the organic taste of kratom either. KRATOMade Single Stick Pack has two servings per drink when you add to a 500ml bottle of water, juice, or tea. KRATOMade currently comes in 24 unique flavors. Perfect for people who want a flavorful experience with kratom and don’t want to worry about measurements. The stick packs are everything you enjoy about kratom without the plant flavor and inconvenience.
Tip for Taking Kratom
Kratom is useful for many uses. It should be noted, though, that you may build a tolerance over time. This can be delayed or avoided by taking tolerance breaks or rotating the strains you consume. Experienced kratom users often keep up to five different strains on hand and use each intermittently to avoid developing a tolerance for any one strain. Another important consideration is the source of your kratom. You’re likely to have the best experience when you get your kratom from a trusted source, so you should always do your research before buying.
