Measuring Your Kratom Powder Dosage

Depending on the dosage that you take, Kratom can either be used as a stimulant or it can provide you with sedative effects. If you want energy, focus, and increase motivation, you may want to use a small dosage. For more of a sedative effect, use a slightly larger dose. Keep reading to learn more about how to properly measure your Kratom powder dosage.


The Perfect Starting Amount

There is a debate about what is considered the perfect starting amount. Typically, most people will agree that anywhere between 1 and 3 grams is a good starting dosage for Kratom. Starting off with this amount will allow you to judge the effect that the herb has on you.

After you decide that you are comfortable with the effects provided by the smaller dosage, you can consider increasing the dosage. Increase your Kratom dose 1 gram at a time. If you start to feel dizzy, nauseous, or experience any other discomfort, bring the dosage back down a gram.

This is the simplest method of determining which dosage to use. Start small and work your way up. Typically, the more Kratom that you consume, the more of a sedative effect the Kratom will have. Lighter doses are recommended for increased energy and better mental clarity.

You also need to keep in mind that everybody is different. Weight, sex, age, medical conditions, metabolism, and other factors can all play a part in how much of an effect you feel with a specific dosage.


Dosage for Opiate Withdrawal

The use of Kratom for opiate withdrawal is still hotly debated. The information provided is offered only to give you an idea of what some people consider appropriate for dealing with opiate withdrawal. Your best option is to speak to your doctor first. Listen to their advice about withdrawal and whether you should use Kratom.

Many online forums suggest taking 7 to 9 grams of Kratom powder to help deal with withdrawal.

After several days, as the withdrawal symptoms become less severe, you may gradually bring down your Kratom dosage. Eventually, your withdrawal symptoms should pass and you can stop taking Kratom or just use it recreationally.


Using an Electronic Scale

The most accurate way to measure your dosage is to use an electronic scale. Some people avoid purchasing an electronic scale because they are worried about the price. You can actually find a quality scale for $20 or less, if you shop around online.

It is generally considered a bad idea to “eyeball” the amount and could cause you to consume too much Kratom – giving you one of the annoying side effects, such as nausea, headache, or irritability. Use a scale to get a more accurate determination of your dosage.

If you pay attention to what you are doing and how much Kratom you are using, you should not have any problem finding the right dosage. Start off slowly, if you have not used Kratom before, and try 1 to 3 grams of powdered Kratom. If you do not get the desired effect, bump up the dosage a bit.
