plant named Kratom or mitragynaspeciosa has been used as an herbal medicine
for several years. It is a native coffee plant in some countries in South East
Asia namely Indonesia, Thailand, Myanmar, and Malaysia. Traditionally, it was
used by the natives of the countries mentioned for treating diarrhea. As time
passed by, people already started using the plant for treating pain, as well as
improving a person's productivity and energy. Such is due to the fact that it
contains painkilling and immunostimulating alkaloids.
the plant has opioid contents and psychoactive effects, many countries have not
legalized the use of such. Prior to the legality issues, the controversial pain killer and immune-stimulant have sent many
individuals to the emergency room. Similarly, in Thailand, where it is grown
and is currently illegal, about 13,000 individuals have committed crimes while
under the influence of high doses of kratom. With such in regard, regulations
in its use have been developed in countries where its use is legal. Likewise,
proper dosage is also very important.
who will be taking kratom should be mindful because overdosing may cause some
side bad effects like nervousness, lethargy, delusion, and paranoia. At proper
high doses, it acts as a stimulant. Meaning, the person will be more sociable
and productive. At low doses, it acts as a sedative. Meaning, the person will
be calmer. Therefore; knowing the proper dosage is very important. It should,
however, be remembered that since there is a variety of Kratom products
for sale, the dosage levels are not actually standardized. Such is due
to the fact that different strains have different potencies. Nevertheless, in
order to serve as a guide, the acceptable dosages mentioned in this article are
formulated based on some experimental and historical data.
most kratom for sale in the market are sold in powder form,
the first measurement will be based on weight. People who want to take it in
mild doses are recommended to take one to two grams. For moderate effect, two
to 4.5 grams is acceptable. The right amount to achieve stimulating effects
without any bad effects is 4.5 to 8 grams. Additionally, in case people choose
to add water to the powder form and create a paste, dosages are measured by the
number of teaspoons. People who will take 0.5 to 0.9 teaspoonfuls will
experience a mild effect. For acceptable moderate and high dosages, people
should take one to two teaspoons and two to 3.5 teaspoons, respectively.
addition, since people have different body mechanisms, the effect for each
dosage level may also vary from person to person. In order to determine the
right dosage, the user is advised to start by taking in the lowest dosage
suggested. After which, he or she should observe the effects. If the desired
effect is not achieved, they should slowly increase the dosage until the
desired effect is achieved. Through such, those who want to be stimulated will
not be overdosed and their bodies will not be immune with the high dosage immediately.
Similarly, many previous users and experts suggest that people should use
alternating doses. Such is due to the fact that continuous use of the same dose
will make the body immune to it, thus, the effect will be gone.
