Respecting Kratom | 10 Rules to Live By As A Kratom Consumer

repecting kratom

What happens when you drink too much caffeine? You get the jitters and then a burn out (in most cases). What happens when you take a multi vitamin on an empty stomach? Well, most get a God awful stomach ache and throw up. Why is it then that people make such a big deal about a person who overdid it with kratom? They were ignorant and took too much or had something else in their system so things get messed up…. Why is this a surprise? Why is kratom the exception to the rule?


Like everything else, kratom has its limits. If you take too much, it usually results in an upset stomach, maybe vomiting, maybe a scorching headache, maybe the wobbles. Every body is different; so therefore, we could react different to too much kratom. Lets say you just popped a multivitamin an hour before dosing with too much kratom, chances are you’re gonna throw up and have a bad headache. You overdid it. Big time. But sure, lets blame the vendor and their kratom you just tried. That’s got to be it….(yes, that’s sarcasm).

Follow these steps to ensure you are respecting kratom and getting the most out of every dose:

Don’t start with high expectations

Just like vitamin C is not guaranteed to prevent colds and flus, kratom is not guaranteed to prevent nervousness or help your mood. Take it going in with realistic expectations, and know your body. I cannot say this enough. MOST do not know their body, so they blame things instead of taking a look at their diet and lifestyle.

Start small and work your way up your dose

Start with half a gram and wait 15 minutes before increasing it. Next time you dose, say the next day, start with a higher dose, continue this way until you find your perfect starting dose that works for you. Not everyone is the same. Some have higher tolerances than others and that does NOT mean their body is getting used to kratom and that they need to pull back. That is not true in some cases. It simple means their body can handle more of something than the average body came.

Don’t stick to the same strain/blend every day

If you find a strain that works great, AWESOME, but don’t stick with just that. Find another! Find a good five blends/strains that work for you and switch off daily, so as to avoid a tolerance level increase on said strain/blend. That can happen with anything. For example, monster energy drinks don’t give me energy anymore because I have drank them daily for ten years.

Take a break every couple of months or so for a few days

It’s good with anything to take a break every once in a while. Your body becomes used to it and the strength goes down a bit.

Know your body and take care of what you put in it on a day to day basis

You need to know your body. It’s so important. For example, kratom will not work if you are taking narcotics (in most cases). Just like mushrooms will not work if you’re taking anti discomfort (in some cases). Sometimes if you take something with a full stomach, the effects are less or nonexistent. So remember what you are doing or what you are eating prior to taking kratom before you judge the kratom for being at fault instead of your own lifestyle choices.

Don’t mix alcohol with it

Alcohol will decrease the benefits of kratom and lower the alkaloids in your system from syncing with your receptors appropriately, preventing benefits from being delivered. Make sure you do either or.

Speak of it like it’s one of your many herbs/supplements you are benefiting from. #Normalizeit

It is important to speak of kratom as if it’s a supplement you just found and bought from Whole Foods. Kratom is NOT A DRUG. It should not be treated or talked about as one or you will be furthermore keeping the DEA on that hype that we use it as such. This is a supplement that benefits us like SamE and Ginkgo benefits us. All are holistic supplements.

Store it in proper containers

It is important to also keep kratom stored in proper containers like mason jars, etc. It helps keep it fresh and it also helps keep the “image” clean looking and respectable.

Kratom is a jealous and selfish plant

It doesn’t like you to mix things with it. If you do, it might give you LESS of the benefits it could offer you and that is simply because of the receptors being used during a dose.

Rarely is it the vendors/farmers fault for kratom not working

So remember to keep an open mind and know your body. Some blend kratom differently so the texture could vary strain to strain. Some vendors harvest it early or later, making it either stronger or weaker.

How about you try Ketum Green Wild. The effects range between those of Red and White Kratom. For some, it serves as a mild energy booster and might help in relieving nervousness. It could improve your wakefulness, helping you be less lethargic or fatigued, thus increasing alertness. It might increase attention span and promote focus.
