Please be aware that the below charts reflect estimates and not exact measurements consistent across all kratom vendors. While it is recommended that you buy a scale to correctly measure your kratom, these charts offer support for those who are unable to do so.

When measuring an extract, we strongly recommend purchasing a small digital scale as they often have a significantly higher degree of variability.

    J Boy, You’ve probably been taking Kratom since you’re last message. Try white maeng da 7grams of powder is a tablespoon of powder or 14 gel tabs. It is euphoric and works for the symptoms you’re taking it for. I wouldn’t steer you wrong brother. I’m a disabled Veteran who needs relief. I hope this message gets to you and helps!

    So 1 cap is around .5 grams unless their the bigger caps. So to get the 6-7 grams you need to take 12-14 caps

    Hi J. Boy,

    Usually in powdered capsule form, they are each approximately 500mg a decent dose can start at 1gram-3gram depending upon weight, age, sensitivty etc. I am 23 5’10 and 185 and when I first started I took 2grams on an EMPTY STOMACH. This IS ABSOLUTELY CRUCIAL otherwise your body will have a difficult time metabolizing the kratom. Red Thai Kratom is a great blended strain which I think will workout nicely. U may also want to try green bali or a less euphoric more lethargic type of strain.

    Hey, I’m new to Kratom and am attempting to use it for Anxiety, Depression and Migraines.

    I have Red Thai Kratom. I believe they are 5mg capsules. How much can I take safely to help me?

    I am 185lbs, 5′-11″, 37 years old.

      I would start with one and then wait about 45 minutes, and see how you feel and work your way up. In my opinion it’s trial and error, and you may not feel a thing with one capsule, or just the right amount!
