How To Take Kratom

Whether you’re a seasoned kratom enthusiast or a newcomer exploring its benefits, there are various methods to consume this herbal supplement. In this blog post, we’ll delve into different ways to take kratom, helping you discover the method that suits your preferences and lifestyle.

Traditional Toss & Wash

The most straightforward method involves taking a measured amount of kratom powder and washing it down with water or a preferred beverage. This method is quick and efficient, but the taste may be challenging for some users.

Orange Juice Method

Have you ever tried mixing kratom with your favorite orange juice? Kratom can definitely be a bit of an acquired taste, and nothing masks the flavor better than some good old fashioned oj! Using a scale or a measuring spoon, measure the desired amount of kratom powder. Grab a small bottle of your favorite orange juice, or any citrus based drink (pineapple works well!), pour in your desired amount of kratom, then shake it like a polaroid picture! While this method is super effective in masking the flavor, there’s also a belief among some kratom enthusiasts that consuming citrus fruits or juices, such as orange or grapefruit, may enhance the effects of kratom.

Kratom Tea

Brewing kratom into a tea is a popular choice for those looking to enjoy a milder flavor. You can use this method to make a single serving, or you can make a large batch to have your kratom ready for the week.

Measure Kratom
Determine the total amount of kratom you want to use for the batch. Follow the recommended dosage per serving and multiply it by the number of servings you plan to make.

Boil Water
Bring the water to a boil, use a ratio of about 1 cup of water for every 1-2 grams of kratom. Once the water is boiling, reduce the heat down to a simmer.

Add Kratom
Gradually add the measured kratom powder or crushed leaves to the simmering water, stirring to ensure even distribution.

Let the mixture simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Stir occasionally to ensure that the kratom is well-infused into the water.

Strain The Tea
After simmering, use a fine strainer, cheesecloth, or a coffee filter to strain the liquid from the kratom. You may want to strain it into a large bowl or pitcher.

Optional: Flavoring
Feel free to add honey, lemon, or whatever you’d like to enhance the flavor. Adjust the amount of lemon or honey to suit your taste preferences. Some people also add other herbs or flavorings to customize the taste.

Once it’s strained, it’s ready to be served! If you plan on storing a large batch, allow it to cool to room temp before refrigerating.


For individuals who find the taste of kratom unpalatable, or if you don’t have the time to measure, capsules or pills offer a convenient option. Pre-measured doses are encapsulated, providing a tasteless and discreet way to consume kratom. Great for on the go, and an awesome option for when you’re traveling! Our capsules here are size “0”, meaning a 1/2 gram of kratom is in each one. If you normally have 2 grams of kratom as your dose, then you would take 4 capsules. Keep in mind when taking capsules the effects can take a little longer to kick in.

Kratom Tinctures

Tinctures are liquid extracts of kratom that offer a potent and convenient method of consumption. A few drops under the tongue provide a rapid onset of effects, making it a popular choice for those seeking faster relief.

Brew It Like Coffee!

Using a French Press

Place your Kratom dose into the French press and add boiling water. Allow the blend to steep until it reaches your preferred potency. When ready, press down the plunger to separate the liquid from the Kratom residue. The intensity of your infusion is influenced by the steeping duration, with a longer steeping time resulting in stronger effects.

Cold Brew Method

Combine Kratom tea or powder with cold water in a jar or pitcher, and let the mixture steep in the refrigerator for 12-24 hours. Cold brewing Kratom tea is a unique approach that maintains the integrity of Kratom’s alkaloids, resulting in a drink that lacks the typical bitterness associated with hot brews.

Experimenting with different methods of consuming kratom allows users to find the approach that aligns with their preferences and needs. Whether you prefer the simplicity of the toss and wash, the soothing ritual of tea, or the convenience of capsules, exploring these options can enhance your overall kratom experience. It’s important to start with low doses, be mindful of your body’s response, and always prioritize your well-being when incorporating kratom into your routine.
