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.

    I take only capsules…how do I know how many gm Im taking. It takes min of 2 reds…sometimes 2 red 2 green.. I dont want my dose too high

    1. Windigo Jones

      Each capsule has 0.5 grams of kratom powder…

    This chart made me realize I’m taking 35 grams a day. I definitely am taking too much.

    1. Jess

      Sameer but I’m going through dental work and I’m in a lot od pain.

  3. Terry

    I was suggested to use this for pain since most conventional methods aren’t working. I have never used opioids for pain. How much should I take during a normal day?

    ok, 1st time commenting on one of these sites,
    i have been a chronic pain sufferer for years. having my 1st sign of back problems at 8 yrs old, again at 9, then my back did a big lock up at 12 and I started chiropractic care from then on, have had an ACL on my left knee @ 14 which was supposed to be replaced at 20, im 55 now.
    now I have bad shoulders, neck, back, knee. and wrists. (oddly enough my attitude is kinda shady as well)
    even with years of pain I owned my own wrecking yard, with employee’s, had been in business over 40 years, and lots of large cool toys to tear stuff up. i sold it all off last year.
    now working is not an option, and worried about increasing pain with minimal medical help, and now medication withdrawal.
    normal use of hydroco was 4 – 10\325’s a day. usually taken ½ at a time, wait an hr or so, then take the other ½ if needed.
    have been trying White Bali Kratom for about a week and a ½. started at 2g. (not much effect) next day tried 3g, and so far that seems to be my sweet spot. took for 2 days,(hydroco down to 1 tab, ½ tab 8 hrs apart) 1 day no Kratom (3 H tabs throughout the day)
    then i tried Red Bali that night due to hearing it helps pain and sleep,
    took 2g before bed. was up all night, mind racing, jittery, pain level through the roof.
    next day took my 4 hydroco tabs.
    then back to white bali. 3g 2 times a day 3 days. (only a single ½ tab of hydroco)
    1 day 1.5 tabs hydroco.
    today will be my 3rd day white bali 3g.
    i am slightly jittery, figured it is to be expected, but no actual cravings of hydroco. my plan is 1 more week, straight Kratom, (barring any severe debilitating pain days) 3 g. a day. stay on it for a week or 2, then taper off Kratom. and use as needed for severe pain only…

    I hear all the stories how kratom saved lives and gotem of opiates I’ve been on it for over 5 months now my buddy gave me 50 or so grams to try so I wouldnt be sick n I got started first I took teaspoons by I didnt kno how much they weighed 12 to 16 grams I got a scale and seen and knew right away I started wit to much the red and green never gave me trouble with doses of 14 to 20 grams bt the green after 8 or so grams I would get sick and puke. I’m trying to get my tolerance down to 5 to 7 grams makin tat my sweet spot as 15 grams or more which is alot compared to wat I’ve been reading I really dnt have much of a diffrence from the white or red kratoms except the white use to make me talkative and social went away tho bt whit or red I have energy idk if mixing 6 grams of white borneo with 8 grams of a red give me energy and euphoria since I’m takin small doses of both.. I tried taking suboxone for two days to take a break from kratom still was in pain and really wanted to drink the kratom and when I didn it helped last white I bought 20 10mg norcos I went thru 3 the first night was in pain 2 hours later drank kratom with it next day I tried not drinkin any kratom I took 2 norcos and and half a xanax bar and 2 hours later and other 2 norcos because I was still nauseous and In pain so I eventually gave in and drank smaller dose of red kratom I tried suboxone 2 bt everything got me bak to kratom dont kno how to detox from kratom without being sick my mane concern is nausea and jst the stomach issues tat cme with it I seen ppl sick and my stomach idk what wrong with it bt I literraly feel like dieing everymorning until I have my kratom I could wat n pop sum pills bt I still end up needing kratom witch I dnt kno if its jst diffrent on me bt feels like I grew a tolerance when full on opioids are not working please help

    I want to try Kratom but I am on Subutex. Does that interact? If I take Kratom in the morning and Subutex later the same day will it send me into withdrawals like it would if I took Vicodin now and then Subutex later the same day without waiting the full 24 hours?

    1. Dan

      No u can take both. I did not think i was going to be able to get kratom this morning so I took a suboxone. But u can mix em

  7. LeeAnne Williams

    I was on oxycodones for 13 years and I was introduced to Kratom by accident. After the research stage, I went off of the oxycodone 10’sand haven’t had 1 day of withdrawals. I make my own capsules using size 00 which hold .5g each. I will take 2 in the morning and most times that’s it, maybe another 1 or 2 during the day depending upon the pain level. The fact that I have no withdrawals from the oxys after 13 yrs is a wonderful experience. I will never take another. I mix Red and White evenly.

    I did digress but I would appreciate a response nonetheless.
    I have been using Maeng Da capsules and the bottle doesn’t say many grams per capsule. I have recently purchased Red Bali and decided to mix powdered Red Bali with the capsule Maeng Da but don’t know what ratio to go with. I have a high tolerance for anything I’ve ever been prescribed after about eight years of brining prescribed percocet (and other things but other drugs but I want off the percocet the most. I tend to take less than prescribed but still have to take it and have been through the hell of light withdrawal, they couldn’t get the pills to me for an entire day after I would run out. I didn’t want to start taking it all those years ago I’m on 10’s, my pain management specialist told me “pain is barbaric” I replied with “pain is human” a long speech later and I gave into getting the pills. Mostly in hope’s that it’d help my SSI, since apparently the surgery and issues wasn’t enough for them. I’ve been fighting to win for over a decade, at first they thought I was surely too young to be in enough pain. A couple years later I won my case within three minutes of speaking to the judge. Then they took it back three months after, stating they failed to record it; I recieved a new date and they gave me a different judge who gave new a different verdict. When the last prior good judge just read my file, which was smaller but she thought that me having 15 screws and two rods in my spine, with chronic pain was a good enough reason; especially since there were screws coming loose and digging into my back muscles. You could even feel the screws. I heavily digress…).
    So, my question is, as someone who sadly needs to take more of most things for them to work but also dont want to run the health risks. How many grams are in a capsule? I typically take between 3-5 capsules and wanted to properly mix Red Bali powder in with tea. I’ve done it three times, trying to play it safe and always before bed. It actually helps my pain enough to allow me 4-5 hours if solid rest, if not interrupted by my wolf pup. I want to use it during the day so I can avoid taking my opioids and what not.

      Alright so i noticed most the comments being extra uneducated ima throw in my two cents. I currently take white kratom to fuel my craving for adderal. I hate opiates so I’m not a recovering opiate addict. I prefer capsules due to the act of parachuting powder being so difficult. I know for a fact that capsules can vary from half a gram to 0.75grams. A normal dose of kratom ranges from 2.5 – 8 grams. Meaning i’m taking like 8 capsules every dose. Also, i tend to redose every 4 – 6 hours but try not to redose more than once a day. I only take kratom for the edge advantage at work. You can tell how easy it is to get addicted as the tolerance build up is real. I try to cycle white and green purely for focus and energy. I’ve been taking kratom for a good 2 – 3 years without any issues.

      1. a quiet respect

        Jesus finally a straight answer. I’m trying white vein for the first time and that’s all I’ve been looking for.

    New user, just trying to find out what average dosing and Max per day is.

  10. Melissa

    Is it possible to use 2 different kinds of kratom like green and white? Give me your thoughts. Tnanks

    1. Josh

      Yes, mixing is a nice switch up and adds different effects.
