Strains, Effects, and Dosage

Strains and effects

Many people new to kratom have questions about the effects of different strains and how much they should consume. The following table serves as a good resource:

Strain Effects Dosage
Bali Euphoric and the most classic opiate like among the strains of kratom 1/2 – 3 teaspoons
Maeng Da Energizing and stimulating with pain killing effects 1/2 – 3 teaspoons
Red Vein Thai Similar to Bali with fewer negative side effects 1/2 – 3 teaspoons
Super Indo Similar to Bali with less euphoria 1/2 – 3 teaspoons
Super Green Malaysian Varies between suppliers but is typically more stimulating with little euphoria 1/2 – 3 teaspoons
Ultra Enhanced Indo Most euphoric of the extracts and works well for reducing social anxiety 1 gram or less (if mixed with powdered leaf)
Thai Essence Somewhat weaker than Ultra Enhanced Indo by weight with a bit of a Maeng Da kick 1 gram or less (if mixed with powdered leaf)
Full Spectrum Tincture (FST) The original likely had synthetic 7-hydroxymitragynine but current formulations are basically Ultra Enhanced Indo in liquid form 0.25mL or more

Methods of consumption

There are a couple popular methods of consuming the powdered leaf, but the most common are “toss and wash”, mixing with food, and preparation as a tea.

“Toss and wash” is basically just spooning the powder into your mouth and washing it down with a liquid. This is the most “difficult” method of consumption but likely gives the strongest effects. The powder is incredibly dry and will stick to your mouth and throat, causing many to gag or cough “blow” the dry powder out of their mouth. If using this method of consumption, it is best to spoon small amounts at a time.

Kratom can also be mixed into a food and eaten that way. Apple sauce and ice cream are often used.

Lastly, preparation as a tea is convenient and effective. We have written detailed instructions for preparing kratom as a tea. It is important to note that only powdered leaf should be used to make tea. Extracts should not be used.

    As far as taking down the powder goes, why not dump it into a water bottle with a little water, shake it, and down it as fast as you can?

    You can ingest Kratom by mixing it as well – but being that I’ve been using kratom for a couple years to combat intolerable pain at the recommendation of doctors – I can day that I recommend against it. Depends partially on what kind you have, but I’m telling you it can be Horrendously bitter. I’ve thrown up just from drinking this stuff mixed with just water. It’s easier to toss and wash. I have a strong stomach too – I was prescribed extremely high doses of hydrocodone and then some time later oxycodone and then hydromorphone later after that – I never got so much as a stomach ache from these. I have a strung stomach. So I mean that – feel free to test your bounds man but it sucked. There were many times where sure I didn’t feel even slightly sick. But the capacity of bitterness was there my friend.
