Can You Take Kratom Multiple Times a Day

Whether you’re a newcomer to the kratom community or an experienced kratom aficionado, dosing is extremely important. Too little and you won’t get the amazing benefits that the plant has to offer, but too much and you can get sick including headaches, nausea, vomiting, and other side effects.

That’s not fun…

Which is why the experts here at Shop Ketum put together this blog on “How much kratom should you take without getting sick?”

How Much Kratom to Take Without Getting Sick?

The first thing to keep in mind is that everybody is different and there are plenty of different factors that influence how much kratom to take without getting sick. For example, low-quality kratom is more likely to cause side effects while it’s easier to overdo the benefits with premium kratom powder.

That being said, there are rules of thumb that you can follow:

Beginner Kratom Dose: 2-4 Grams

Medium Strength Dose: 4-6 Grams

Large Strength Dose: 7 to 9 Grams

Huge Strength Dose (For experts only!): 10+ Grams

How Much Kratom Should You Take as a Beginner?

We always recommend starting as slowly as possible, at least until you see how your body is going to react. For example, start with 1 to 4 grams of kratom. More than that and you might get some unwanted side effects. If you don’t get the benefits you want after 30 to 45 minutes, then you can take an additional gram or two.

If that still doesn’t work, then we recommend waiting a few hours before trying again. If you don’t get the results you want, then it might also be the kratom. The best kratom is found with specialty online vendors who test their kratom products and have a good reputation in the kratom industry.

How Much Kratom Should You Take For Energy and Focus?

Typically, lower kratom doses produce energy and focus. In addition, it’s really important to choose a high-quality white strain for the most energetic results like Super White Kratom. Some green kratom strains are also great for speedy results, particularly Green Borneo.

If you’re looking for energy and focus, then we recommend taking under 6 grams. For many users, that’s where the effects start to shift to very relaxing. That being said, it may take some experimentation with your particular strain to get the dose perfect.

Some people even like using microdoses of 1 gram or less to achieve a caffeine-like mental boost throughout the day. This is good for productivity at work as well as social situations without being too potent.

Finally, you can also drink a little coffee with your kratom dose to boost the energetic results. Lots of people find the synergy highly beneficial for their kratom routine.

How Much Kratom Should You Take For Relaxation and Discomfort?

Relaxing kratom doses are usually higher than energetic doses, but it also helps to start with a relaxing yellow or red kratom strain. Our customers love Red Bentuangie Kratom for exceptionally potent, but powerfully relaxing results. One of my favorites is Yellow Gold Kratom because it still has a slightly energetic feel while also being very physically sedating.

A relaxing kratom dose will typically range between 5 grams and 10 grams depending on the strain and your experience level. However, that may be too much for a beginner and if you’re new to kratom you may get great relaxation from a 3 or 4-gram dose as well.

One trick when talking about relaxing doses is to add a little crystal kratom extract to your kratom powder. This maximizes the results, elevates the mood, and relaxes the body and mind without you having to take more powder. That means less risk of getting sick too.

How Long to Wait Between Kratom Doses? How Often Can You Take Kratom?

Now that you know how much to dose, how often can you take it? While it will work better if you take it only occasionally, many people like taking it multiple times per day. However, taking it sparingly can help you prevent tolerance as well as side effects.

If you do want to take it multiple times in one day, we strongly recommend a maximum of three doses per day. Additionally, you will get the best results if you wait at least 4 hours between doses. I have found that if I eat between doses, as long as the meal is more than an hour before my next dose, it helps to eradicate remnants of the first dose to unlock the potential for the next dose.

If you are wondering how much kratom to take without getting sick, remember that doubling down is much more likely to do so. That’s because the effects from the alkaloids build up in your system.

What Happens If You Take Too Much Kratom?

If you take too much kratom, it is unlikely to do any real harm. However, it won’t be fun. It can cause tons of nausea as well as vomiting, feeling hot and clammy, headaches, lack of balance, wobbly eyes, uncomfortable sedation, and other side effects.

That’s why it’s always smart to start as slow as possible, especially if you’ve never taken kratom before. You should also start with high-quality tested kratom powder from a reputable vendor. This will reduce or eliminate the risk of contaminants that can cause worse side effects for you and your body.
