A Beginner's Guide To Using Kratom Powder

Posted on

Kratom is a natural substance that comes from a tree native to Asia. It is known for its stimulating and psychotropic effects. Many describe its effects as being a cross between those of caffeine and THC. Kratom is legal in the United States, and many people find it beneficial for managing symptoms associated with withdrawals, relieving fatigue, and fighting symptoms associated with mental health. If you are someone who is thinking of using kratom for the first time, there are a few tips you should keep in mind.

Choose a mild strain.

There are different strains of kratom, and they have different potency levels. When you are new to kratom, you want to be able to start with a low dose and slowly use more and more until you arrive at the right dose for you. This is easiest to do with a milder, lower-potency strain of kratom. Green Indo Kratom powder is a common choice for new users. It comes from Indonesia and is known to be quite mild and balanced in its effects.

Use kratom when you don't have anything important to get done.

Ultimately, you may benefit from using kratom when you need to focus or when you need to manage anxiety in a social setting. However, the first couple of times you use this substance, you really want to make sure you have a few hours cleared from responsibilities. Some people do experience side effects like dry mouth and mild nausea, so you need to figure out how to manage these when you're not under pressure to get anything done. Often, these side effects are worse the first few times you try kratom, and then they go away. You also want to be able to focus on honing in your dose, which is easiest to do when you're home, relaxed, and obligation-free.

Consume it with some food.

Most people find that taking their kratom with food helps minimize the side effects they experience. Food does not make the kratom less potent or active. Eat a little before you brew your kratom tea, and then keep nibbling on food while you sip the tea. Light, carbohydrate-based foods like biscuits, crackers, and cereal tend to go well with kratom. 

The first few times you use kratom powder may come with a little experimentation. Remember to use a mild strain, increase your dose slowly, take your kratom with food, and spend your time relaxing at home.
