Powdered Kratom leaves are highly soluble in tea or in a juice so you can create a really special energy drink in no time at all. Kratom works differently from a sizeable dose of caffeine and although it has things in common with it a Kratom high is something else altogether. Kratom has more in common with opium. You have to try it once to know what it’s like.

What is Kratom?
Kratom is extracted from a fifteen-metre high tree in the rainforest: the Mitragyna speciosa. This tree’s leaves contain more than twenty-five substances which influence the effect of Kratom to varying degrees.
Kratom is mainly known in South-East Asia where it is used in many countries as a mild stimulant. At a lower dosage the effect is comparable to coffee, cocoa leaves or nicotine, but it differs according to variety.
The Bizarre Effects of Kratom
The Kratom plant is highly sensitive to where it is growing. This makes it very difficult to grow Kratom yourself. Depending on the environment from which Kratom comes, its effect can be quite different. Compare it to the taste of wine. Connoisseurs will notice the difference immediately. The effect of Kratom is also somewhat subjective with most people reporting they experience the effect differently. For example, a low dosage of the Thai variant stimulates you and gives you energy. Maeng Da goes a step further and promises you a euphoric feeling. If you want to chill out nicely then Bali and Malaysia are the variants you need, also at a lower dosage.
Whatever the type, they all get you drunk if you take enough, just like wine. That’s roughly true of Kratom in the same way. A bigger dose of Kratom deadens you and sedates your body somewhat, irrespective of whether you take Thai, Balinese or Malaysian Kratom.
The effect of Kratom is noticeable between 5 and 10 minutes after intake. The effect can remain for several hours and is both relaxing and stimulating. It’s a different experience; you can feel relaxed and dreamy, whilst also feeling active or being in the mood to work. Sources say that Kratom, in lower doses, has a stimulating effect and in higher doses, a relaxing one. Euphoric and dreamlike feelings are the most prominent effects. A high dose of Kratom can cause prolonged sleep.
Use and Dosage of Kratom Powder
Kratom powder dissolves very well in water. This makes it particularly suitable for putting in a smoothie, juice or milkshake. Then you’ll hardly notice the nutty, slightly bitter taste. Use 3 to 5 grammes for a light dose (the effects vary by type) and 10 grammes of powder for a high, sedating dose. The exception is Maeng Da Kratom - 1 to 2 grammes of this is enough to experience that euphoric feeling.
As far as dosage goes, we just want to let you know the following. At high doses, Kratom is slightly addictive. If you use it consecutively for a number of days to weeks, you could suffer from congestion, facial discolouration, reduced appetite and ultimately even weight loss. As if that’s not enough you may also have withdrawal symptoms: irritability, runny nose and very thin bowel movements which will make withdrawal uncomfortable for you and your environment. So make sure not to use Kratom continuously.
Is Kratom dangerous? Not per se. But do note: in the case of regular use, Kratom can be addictive. With tiresome side effects as a consequence. Insomnia, weight loss and a deterioration in physical appearance can result. Do you use Kratom from time to time? Then there’s nothing to worry about. Don’t use Kratom Drugs in combination with MAO inhibitors or when driving. Using the substance if pregnant is also strongly discouraged.
