Effect: Strong and calming
Recommended dosage: 1 to 5 capsules for the desired effect.
In addition to your own body weight and sensitivity, the dosage also depends a lot on the strength of the kratom. Normally, 5-10 grams of dried leaves should be enough for inexperienced users. The dosage can be slightly lower with kratom powder, which is usually stronger than regular leaves (3-5 grams). The same goes for extract. Kratom is not addictive when used responsibly and no more than once or twice a month. More experienced users will feel the need to increase the dosage after some time.
Kratom in higher doses tends to have sedative effects, regardless of which strain is used.
Because the capsules are an extract of the Mitraguna speciosa herb, the effects will also be many times stronger.
Mild Effect: 1 capsule
Reasonable/Good Effect: 2-3 capsules
Strong Effect: 3-5 capsules

Kratom has a strong effect on your mood and energy. It reduces fears, while the feeling is described as happy, strong and active, with a calm mind and a strong will to work. Thai workers use it to get through the working day. The effects are felt after 5 to 10 minutes and can last for several hours.
Most people call the effects stimulating and euphoric at a low dose and sedative at a higher dose. This can probably be explained by the fact that mitragynine stimulates the delta opiate receptors in small amounts, but as the dose increases, the more and more the mu-opiate receptors stimulate.
Although the main alkaloids in kratom are related to psychedelic substances, kratom does not appear to have psychedelic effects. The main effects are similar to those of opiates: analgesic and cough suppressant, but also narcotic and euphoric. These effects are approximately comparable in strength to codeine.
Some sources claim that kratom, like other opiates, increases sexual desire in women and can reduce erection problems in men. The positive effect of mitragynine on mood and a reduction in anxiety are probably responsible for this. Other effects of mitragynine include decreased muscle tone, local anesthesia and central nervous system depression.
Direct negative effects can include dry mouth, increased urination, decreased appetite and constipation. Unlike opiates, mitragynine usually does not cause nausea or vomiting. Intensive use can result in a mild form of lethargy.
Kratom is not a medicine, but can have a positive effect on things like:
– Improved concentration
– Energy deficiency
– Relief of pain
– Reduction of cravings (craving) in addictions
