Here is how you can take Kratom to achieve various effects:
For energy and Focus – Take 3 to 6 grams of Kratom every day. You can mix it with grapefruit juice for even better results.Pain and Anxiety – For the best pain relieving effects and to reduce anxiety, you need to take between 7 to 9 grams. However, new Kratom users are encouraged to start with low doses before they get to this point. Remember that a sudden spike of Kratom in your system can be very harmful and that’s why it’s paramount to start with low doses regardless of how desperate you may be for results.For Opiate Withdrawal – Kratom has been used as a replacement for opioid drugs for some time now.
This herb reduces one’s cravings for opiates thus helping addicts to stay away from heroin and other hard drugs. For this purpose, you need to start with approximately 7-9g taken either 2-4 times every day for the first three days. The dosage should then be reduced to 5-7g on the fourth day and 3-5g on the fifth day and just 2g on the sixth day. Most people experiencing opiate withdrawal quit Kratom after the seventh day.
The thing about Kratom is that no specific dose can work for everyone. People react differently to this natural plant and hence what worked brilliantly for your friend may not turn out perfect for you. Therefore, you have to go out in search for your own “sweet spot”. This is the dose where you will feel the effects you were looking for without exposing yourself to negative reactions.
The general rule here is that you start small and increase the doses with time. Scientists recommend that all beginners start with 2-3g of Kratom. Give the herb around 20-25 minutes and pay attention to how you are reacting. If you don’t feel any changes afterward, increase the dose by 0.5 or 1g and take your time once again to monitor how you are reacting.
The idea here is to identify the dose that gives you the slightest effects of Kratom. After knowing that dose, you can take it up a notch to a point where the effects are just enough to meet your satisfaction but you should always remain vigilant. You may be in excruciating pain and you hope taking lots of Kratom will help you but if you take it in excess, the pain won’t be the only issue bothering you anymore, trust me.
