Effects of the Kratom start right after 10 to 15 minutes of its use, and can last for 2 hours if taken at a smaller dose and 8 hours at the higher dose. 4-5 grams is a good starting dose for having stronger effects and it last for 2 hours. 7-8 grams dose is for having more substantial effects which last for 6-8 hours but not usually recommended … be careful.
The peak effects of Kratom last around 1.5-2.5 hours and if you don’t eat anything right after consuming Kratom.
How Long Do The Kratom Effects Last?
Users have reported that the effects of the Kratom last around five to six hours. When you consume it on an empty stomach, the effects are felt 30-40 minutes after the consumption. If you have taken the Kratom on a full stomach, then it may take around 60-90 minutes before the Kratom begins to effect.
When you take the Kratom in the form of capsules, the conception of the effects may get a little delayed because it takes the time to dissolve capsules in the stomach.
How Much Kratom For Stronger & Quicker Effects?
Just like many medicines, when you take Kratom in regular doses the effects of it will last for three-four hours. The result that Kratom will have on a person involves lots of other factors like weight, age, general tolerance, etc.
It’s essential to understand that Kratom works differently for every user. In general, one should always be cautious and start with a little to average dose and then work their way up to higher doses.
Here is a brief dosage guideline and the effects it will generate:
- 2-4 grams Kratom = subtle effects (stimulant effects)
- 4-6 grams Kratom = medium effects (analgesic effects/stimulant or sedative)
- 6-8 grams Kratom = Strong effects ( analgesic effects.sedative; too strong for most people)
- 8 grams or higher = very strong effects, way too intense (analgesic/sedative effects; Not Recommended)
The Kratom doses mention above applies to Kratom powder or leaves (not extracts).
People’s sensitivity against Kratom can differ, and the potency of Kratom may vary based on where it was cultivated from or what type it is.
So the dosage mentioned above should be regarded as approximate dosages, it’s best you ask your vendor about the dosage and the effects of it.
As recommended above, you should always start with a low dose when you are an experiment with a new Kratom.
It is highly advised not to take a high dose of Kratom when you are sampling a new Kratom.
It is recommended that you take Kratom when you are an empty stomach, those who are sensitive to it may experience side effects like nausea and upset stomach.
Should I Use Kratom Powder Or Kratom Capsules?
Kratom capsules and Kratom powder produce the effects are the same. Some people are not comfortable with using capsules as they feel it won’t work or provide the same results. Using Kratom capsules does work.
They offer the same effects as Kratom powder.
Kratom capsules are Kratom powder stuffed into vegetarian or gelatin capsule.
If you ask me, my choice is taking Kratom capsules, because you don’t have to struggle with the wrong taste in your mouth, you don’t need to prepare anything, so there is no mess. And you can carry them easily to work, or anywhere you go. They are as effective as the Kratom powder.
Whereas, when you take Kratom powder, you need to deal with the horrible taste of the herb. Since the powder is not soluble, it’s quite difficult to mix in the drinks.
The process of making Kratom drinks can be time-consuming and messy. So if you plan to use Kratom outside your home, you will find it difficult in preparing Kratom drinks.
How Quickly Does Kratom Tolerance Build?
Tolerance to a particular variety of Kratom is referred as Stagnant Strain Syndrome. Some users have reported developing a tolerance after using it for just a few days while others haven’t experienced it for weeks using the same strain.
The main symptom to recognize Kratom tolerance is that you will take larger doses of Kratom powder to experience the effects you desire.
Kratom tolerance makes your body and minds more dependent towards Kratom and less sensitive, which at times forces the user to opt for larger doses to get the same results. An increase in dosage means increases in use which leads to rising in price per dose.
If Kratom tolerance goes unchecked, then it means you can have withdrawal symptoms in addition to adverse side effects.
Kratom users know about the Stagnant Strain Syndrome (SSS), this is a syndrome which indicates the effects that come from the extended usage of a particular strain or blend.
Distinctive Kratom strains have particular active elements that are different from other strains. The extensive use of same strain limits the exposure to other alkaloid mixtures.
That generates a tolerance for Kratom in your body.
