If you’re interested in Kratom and its potential benefits it can have on your life, you’re not alone. There are many different ways to take kratom powder.
So what’s the best one?
This article will walk you through all the information you need to know to determine the best way to take kratom powder for you.
Kratom Powder’s Effects
It’s important to understand the effects of kratom powder if you want to figure out the best way to use it. Kratom has long been misinterpreted as a party drug, but that’s just not true.
Kratom has a range of effects. With certain strains, in higher doses, kratom is similar to caffeine in how stimulating it is. With other strains, in lower doses, it acts as more of a sedative and can be used to treat pain.
Because of its variety of effects, it’s important for new kratom users to take small doses in the beginning to understand the effects it will have on their bodies.
Now that you understanding the basics of kratom, let’s get into the many ways that kratom powder can be used.
Kratom tea is one of the most popular ways that kratom powder is consumed. The hot water helps combat the natural bitter flavor of kratom and brings out kratom alkaloids. The good taste and presence of more alkaloids make this the best way to take kratom powder for euphoria.
When making Kratom tea, you have several options.
If you want a cup of tea that will help you get up and work — kind of like a caffeinated tea, such as Irish Breakfast or Earl Gray — consider using white vein kratom. White vein kratom is the most potent form of kratom and operates as a stimulant on your body.
If you’re looking for a more soothing type of tea to help you relax, consider using red vein kratom. Red vein kratom works the opposite of white vein kratom, acting as a mild sedative.
Making kratom tea is simple. All you need to do is boil some water, fill up a mug with kratom powder, pour the hot water on top of the kratom powder, stir, wait a few minutes, then add your favorite tea.
The ease and diversity of use make kratom tea a good contender for the title of “the best way to take kratom powder”.
This method is not for the faint of heart. The toss-and-wash method is the gut shot of the kratom world. It’s also, technically, a very easy way to take kratom powder.
For the toss-and-wash method, measure out the amount of kratom powder you want, and toss it to the back of your throat. Then, fast as you can, wash it down with water.
This is an easy way to take kratom powder because you’re swallowing the powder directly. But swallowing powder isn’t exactly appealing to most people, so this one’s probably best for hardcore kratom fans.
However, also consider that this method eliminates taste buds from the process entirely, so if you don’t like the taste of kratom powder, this could be the method for you.
As you can see, there are many advantages and disadvantages to the toss-and-wash method. All we can say is to make sure you’re ready to swallow a mouth full of powder before you try it.
Just like marijuana, kratom is very easy to work into food for you to use in everyday life. Let’s take a look at some of your options.
Generally, people mix kratom powder into food products that do not need to be cooked, that way the potency of the kratom isn’t reduced. Some examples of products people often mix their kratom into are applesauce, cereal, yogurt, oatmeal, and pudding.
Kratom is known for having a somewhat bitter flavor, so make sure that you use your favorite sweetener to counteract whatever sort of kratom snack you’re whipping up.
It’s important to remember that taste is very subjective, and the world of kratom food hasn’t been explored all that much. When you’re approaching taking your kratom powder in edible form, make sure you approach it with a scientist’s eye. Explore, experiment, and don’t be afraid to take a couple of tries to get it right.

If you’re worried about taste, kratom capsules are the option for you. If you don’t like the idea of turning kratom into some sort of food or drink (totally understandable, you might want to keep your medicines and your nutrition separate!), you should strongly consider kratom capsules.
Kratom capsules are a simple, discrete way to take your kratom. You can take them with you in public to pop in your mouth at any time, or simply keep them around the house for ease of use. Capsules are a great way to treat kratom like you would any medicine to help you get through life.
You can make capsules with your very own capsule machine. There are many ways to buy capsule machines online, to help you get your dose of kratom.
