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.

    Soo ive been on subs for 2 years now and have been trying to wean myself since august. the last few weeks ive literally been doing crumbles of sub every other day or when that 36 hours lapse starts. for some reason my withdrawls are really bad still even with how little sub i was doing and kratom isnt doing anything at all at night for me,. do i need to be doing way more? im doing about 4 grams every few hours and it only seems to help a little until night time where it doesnt help at all. im about to start doing my subs again and go back to the recovery center at this point….wash and tossing kratom is the last thing i want to do when i am withdrawing at 3 in the morning. anyone have any advice? i really want to be drug free

    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!

      I wasn’t on Subutex over 30 years ago. I was in the first few blind studies and helped get it passed by the FDA. After the trial they supplied with Subutex for many years. I was originally taking 16 mgs a day, as required by the study. It saved my life but at a point I wanted to decrease because I was terrified to get into an accident or get sick and that no pain med would be effective while in the hospital or recovering I was easily able to decrease to a CRUMB of the Subex which was still effective in preventing any withdrawal symptoms. But that last crumb was impossible. Krattom was the only thing effective. My son sent me several strains of Kratom. The first one I tried was Green Marne da I actually just chose one randomly. And a half teaspoon did the trick quickly. I just had a terrible knee replacement surgery. And I had a high tolerance to the narcotic although I stopped taking Subutex completely 3 years ago, but had only been taking 1 mg for 20 years. Nothing, unless given intravenously helped with the pain at all. I have a 100 of 5 mg. pills of oxycodone because they had no effect on my pain or my mood. They just did nothing. I decided to try the Green Marng da again and with in minutes my pain subsided. And my energy increased. But it must be taken in small doses. Between half and 3/4 of a teaspoon. The first time tried the kratom I took very little and said. Omg. This stuff is legal??? I had the euphoria sleep. But I didn’t want that. After my surgery I read that to manage the severity of my pain, to take about 3 teaspoons. And that was the worst mistake ever. I was in an opiod induced itch all over every inch of my body which is not caused by histamines so allergies meds ( antihistamines ) don’t help. It lasted for at least 10-12 hours. Do now I had both excruciating pain and itching. So you have to be careful and adjust the amount as you go along. Add after a half hour if you think you want more. I mix the powder in hot coffee and sweeten it with flavored creamer. Bentaguai Kratom is one of my favorites, also on very small dosages. Because unlike Maeng da, it’s more calming then stimulating but does the trick. So it’s good to take before bed. Good luck.

    How many capsules should i be taking to feel anything?

    1. Dill

      20.

  4. Paula

    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!

      I’m 50 years old, 175 lbs, 6′, and take 1 tablespoon of Green Maeng da on an empty stomach every afternoon and it completely eliminates my anxiety, depression and curbs the frequency of my migraines. Also makes migraines way more tolerable when they occur.
