Kratom tolerance is never fun. It means you have to take more to get the same awesome effects. Is that really so bad? Well, you’ll learn that and more if you keep reading including tons of great tips to manage kratom tolerance.
What is Kratom Tolerance and Is It Bad?
Kratom tolerance, like tolerance to any substance, is simply when your body and mind start getting used to the plant. As you take it more often, the effects will diminish and if you want the same potent effects as the first one or two times you took this miraculous plant, you have to take more kratom.
That might not seem so bad, but there are some consequences of doing so. First, that means you have to buy kratom. While Ketum Superior Kratom is very affordable, nobody wants to spend more money than they used to. But you can also subscribe to our monthly kratom offer to get even more discounts, including 20% off your first monthly order.
Second, taking more kratom can contribute to minor side effects like constipation, aggravation, nausea, or headaches that you wouldn’t get with your starting dose. While high-quality kratom combined with antioxidants, like Blueberry MD Special Blend Kratom, can reduce the risk of side effects, the risk is even less with smaller doses.
So, you don’t want tolerance or maybe you already have a tolerance and don’t know what to do. We’re here to help.
How to Manage Kratom Tolerance
Here are some of the best tips and tricks by kratom aficionados on how to prevent, manage, or reduce kratom tolerance.
Stick to Your Dose
It can be easy to keep chasing more benefits, but if you stick with the same dose instead of fluctuating, then you can manage kratom tolerance in the long term. In fact, some people, myself included, have taken the same exact dose for years and still get great results from our favorite strains (like Green Maeng Da Kratom!).
Most people have a sweet spot where they get the best results anyway, so increasing your dose can actually lead to feelings of dullness and diminishing returns. That sweet spot is different for everyone, so just try to work up to it a little at a time.
Don’t Re-Dose Too Early
Similarly to increasing your dose, redosing before the effects of your initial dose have completely worn off is a fast way to skyrocket your tolerance. Instead, wait at least 4 hours between doses with 5+ hours being even better.
Additionally, avoid dosing more than 2-3 times per day because doing so can increase tolerance faster than almost any other tolerance-increasing method.
We all have our favorite strains, but taking 1 strain for a long period of time can get your body used to it, but not necessarily to other strains. That’s because there are numerous alkaloids in kratom and different strains have different balances and ratios of each one.
So, instead, try rotating your strains at least once a week. For example, if you love Red Bali Kratom, make sure you rotate in yellow vein kratom every so often. This could be rotating it 1 week on, 1 week off, or you could even try taking one in the morning and one in the evening if you dose twice per day.
There are some supplements and substances that can potentiate kratom, or give it a little extra boost. Some effective potentiators include turmeric, apple cider vinegar, CBD oil, and caffeine. Click here to read our dedicated article on how to potentiate kratom.
Reduce Your Dose (Or Take a Break)
While this might be the most obvious way to reduce tolerance, it’s also one of the most effective. By tapering down to a lower dose you can reduce tolerance. Just make sure you give it some time. Most kratom users can reduce dosage by 25% without much discomfort, but you can also taper down 5% at a time if that’s easier for you.
Furthermore, taking a complete break from kratom can be a great way to reset your tolerance. In fact, we recommend doing so 1-2 times per year. When you come back to kratom after a 2-week break, you will be pleasantly surprised by the potent benefits.
Practice Self Care
Taking care of yourself is of vital importance when getting good results from kratom and managing tolerance. Make sure you get enough sleep, eat healthy foods, and exercise regularly. This keeps your body’s natural chemicals in balance, which directly influences the benefits you get from kratom.
You can even use Super White Kratom capsules as a pre-workout supplement for a boost of motivation and energy. That way, you can make sure you get a good workout while reducing your kratom tolerance at the same time.
Use High-Quality Kratom
This is one final expert tip: use potent, high-quality kratom from reliable vendors to ensure the best results with fewer side effects. This keeps your tolerance and dose low to ensure you never have to increase tolerance to chase the benefits you crave. That’s why we always test our kratom trusted by hundreds of kratom users.
