Kratom can be intimidating for beginners; here is a guide explaining the different forms of kratom and how to use them.
Different Types of Kratom
Kratom leaves are ground up into a fine powder to make consumption fast and easy, but many people find the taste hard to deal with. Kratom powder has a very strong bitter taste, which can be a little difficult to mask. Luckily, kratom has more than one form. Other forms include but do not limited to
How to Use Kratom Powder
Firstly, kratom powder is a popular and quick way to take kratom; it is also convenient for precise dosing. The powder has many uses, the most popular way being toss and wash. This method includes sticking the recommended powder dosage in your mouth and washing it down with your choice of drink. For instance, orange juice is popular due to the fact of citrus is a potentiator for kratom and helps mask the bitter taste. With this method, some people may even move the liquid around in their mouth to mix with the powder making it easier to swallow.
No worries if that method did not sound appealing to you, there are many different options. A great way to mask the taste of kratom is by adding it into smoothies or foods like apple sauce. Kratom is difficult to mix in liquids, but the powder mixes effortlessly in smoothies just like any smoothie additive. Just measure, add, and blend!
How to Use Kratom Capsules
Kratom capsules are super convenient for traveling and are mess-free. Another added benefit is not having to experience the kratom powder’s bitter taste due to it being encapsulated. Capsules are perfect for beginners and are a lot less of a hassle. Like most other capsules, it takes time for the body to break down the capsule to release the kratom powder. This method has a slight delay-off effect, whereas ingesting the powder with liquid or mixed in food is almost an immediate effect.
Not only are there capsules, there is also something similar called kratom extract tablets. They are incredibly potent and are more geared towards people with more experience with kratom. These tablets are packed full of alkaloids; our 45% kratom extract tablets have around 50mg of mitragynine. In conclusion, kratom capsules and tablets are fantastic on-the-go options for everyone on their kratom journey.
