Kratom: Benefits and Dosage

If you are just starting out with Kratom varieties, you may be asking questions like what is Maeng Da? Which variety should I choose? How to calculate the dosage? The matter is complicated by the fact that the choice of the variety depends on your needs. The dosage depends on the variety chosen and your purpose. As you can see, it is better to get a very detailed consultation from the seller. And before that, you need to choose a responsible supplier.

Safe Kratom Dosages

For beginners, just 1 gram is a safe amount. You can gradually increase the volume of the active substance, but not go beyond 15 grams per day. This is true when it comes to dry tea leaves. Powder or, moreover, concentrate requires even smaller volumes. Also, you must consider the variety. For example, Maeng Da dosage should not exceed 10 grams because this variety contains more active alkaloids than most others.

Things to consider

In moderate doses, Kratom can be used to treat a variety of ailments. When fresh, it helps relieve diarrhea, headaches and muscle pain. Tea drink with fried Kratoma leaves normalizes blood sugar levels. A solution of crushed leaves of Mitragyna speciosa and any alcohol promotes the rapid healing of herpes sores on the skin. In addition, kratom has a positive therapeutic effect on the entire body. For example, small Maeng Da Kratom doses raise the mood, relieve nervous tension and help you fall asleep quickly and soundly.

Dosage for depression and anxiety

Most users are inclined to believe that if it is necessary to cheer up and maintain vigor, 1-2 to 3-4 grams of the drug is enough. It depends on how long you have been using this supplement and how accustomed your body is to it.

If you have insomnia or need to relieve stress after work, then you can consume 5-6 grams of powder. Remember that for most people, over 8 grams is euphoric.

Consider the following factors when calculating the quantity:

  • Your height, weight and age;
  • How much and when you ate before taking the drug;
  • Have you taken such a drug before (if so, how often and in what quantities);
  • You want to relax or, on the contrary, feel more cheerful.

In all cases, you should consult a neurologist or psychiatrist if you are already taking psychopathic medications or antidepressants.

Overdose symptoms

The general opinion of most physicians and ordinary people is that the judicious use of Kratom does not cause serious side effects. However, there are many documented cases where long-term use of large doses of Kratom led to undesirable consequences. The most common of these are nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, muscle tremors, loss of appetite and weight loss.

The main active ingredient in Kratom is a poorly studied active alkaloid mitragynine. Frequent physiological consequences of long-term effects of mitragynine on the human body include darkening of the skin, chronic rhinitis, constipation and the formation of polyps in the gastrointestinal tract. The latter happens when a person eats not only the pulp of the leaves, but also elastic fibrous veins that are not absorbed during digestion.

Emotionally, excessive use of Kratom can lead to depression, insomnia, aggression and other manifestations of a nervous disorder. As noted by psychiatrists, high doses of mitragynine have a negative effect on the central nervous system. The person becomes lethargic and lethargic, which leads to loss of attention and increases the risk of accidents. In case of severe overdose, the patient may develop paranoia, delirium and hallucinations.

It is worth noting that regular consumption of Kratom can be addictive. People who eat the leaves of this plant for a long time get used to the daily state of “cheerfulness” and “positive” and over time begin to increase the dose. This dependence is not necessarily fatal. However, drug addiction doctors warn that excessive consumption of this plant can have a devastating effect on the human body and mind.


Be sure to consult with the seller about the choice of the variety and form of release of the drug. In any case, we recommend starting small. Even if you need strong pain relief, take 1 to 2 grams first, wait an hour and take more. Such a scheme will allow you to clearly control your feelings and prevent the appearance of unwanted effects.
