Now, let’s dive into some exciting ideas about what we can expect from consuming kratom in 2023!
What is Kratom?
If you have recently learned about kratom, you might wonder exactly what it is and why it has become so popular. First, kratom is a natural substance found in the wilderness, specifically in Asia and Africa. The substance itself can be derived from the leaves of a type of coffee tree.
Kratom was first widely heralded as a wonder substance that could give people energy, but many other benefits have been discovered since then. Kratom comes in various forms, such as powder, capsules, tea bags and tablets which can be purchased at any well-known kratom retailer. However, if you are thinking of consuming kratom, you should consult your healthcare provider since it is known to be incompatible with certain medications.
The Benefits of Kratom
Now that you have a better idea of what kratom is, you are probably wondering what the benefits mentioned above are. The interesting thing about kratom is that the amount that you take will determine its effects.
For example, if you are looking for extra energy, you should consume less than 5mg, which is very important to note. The next benefit of kratom is pain relief, which can be experienced if you consume 5-15mg. If you have trouble sleeping, kratom can act like a sedative if you consume more than 15mg.
Now that you know the benefits that kratom provides, it’s time to take a look at look at how it can be consumed. The first method to consume kratom is the direct powder method. How this works is you will basically just pour the powder directly into your mouth and wash it down with a liquid of your choice.
This method is popular with many users since it is very convenient and you can do it with water, as well as if done right, you won’t taste anything. However, for someone new to this, it can be easy to either breathe in the powder or even let it get stuck in your throat.
The next method on this list, which has also become popular because of its convenience, is to consume kratom capsules. Basically, a kratom capsule is simply just kratom powder that has been encapsulated for easy consumption. You can buy pre-filled capsules or make them yourself, but then you would need to get the dosage right.
This method might be convenient, but it is also one of the most expensive, especially if you buy pre-filled capsules. Another issue with making the capsules yourself is that it will take time, so it won’t be easy to do on the go. However, using kratom capsules means there isn’t a terrible taste, and you won’t be consuming extra calories.
Kratom in Liquid
Another very simple method of consuming kratom is to simply mix it with other liquids. This method is one of the most common for kratom users because of its convenience. Many users typically use liquids such as orange juice, water, or chocolate milk.
The downside of using kratom liquid is that it will have a very strong taste, which many new users might find unappealing. In addition, it might add a chunky texture to the liquid you are drinking, which is hard to stomach for a few users.
Finally, one of the most popular methods of consuming kratom is by drinking it in tea. This method is quick and easy. Some users prefer mixing the powder in the tea, whereas others use kratom leaves and let the tea brew.
Unfortunately, much like mixing kratom with liquid, kratom tea can have a rather unpleasant taste. More importantly, it can be easy to dose kratom tea incorrectly. The benefits of using tea are that you can adjust the strength of the brew to your liking and add stuff to the tea to improve the flavor, like lemons or honey.
