When trying any new supplement, it’s essential to proceed with caution. Even after thorough research, you can’t be positive how something will affect you until you try it. Because Kratom affects people differently, it’s best to start with a small dose regardless of size, age, or other factors. For instance: if the same size person takes the same size dose, it may affect them differently. Millions of Kratom users over the years have learned that using Kratom responsibly requires starting slowly. We encourage you to develop safe kratom habits from the very beginning.

First, make sure Kratom is legal where you live before you order or consume it. Kratom legality varies, so a little research will be required to determine if Kratom is legal where you live. One useful resource for that is the Kratom Legality Map, published by

What Is a Dose of Kratom When Using Kratom Responsibly?

Kratom comes in multiple forms, but two types are widely accepted and used most frequently. The most popular ways to take Kratom are in powder form and in gel capsules full of the powder. The tricky part is that there isn’t a standard recommended dose for Kratom as there is for prescription medication. In general, a minimum Kratom dose is equal to a standard measuring teaspoon, or roughly 2.25 grams. Kratom powder should be organic and consist of ground-up, crushed leaves with no additives. Online references usually give dosage levels in terms of teaspoons, tablespoons, and grams.

It’s usually easier to calculate the amount of Kratom per dose when taking capsules because capsule weights are typically predetermined. Not only is Kratom easier to measure in capsule form, but capsules also let you avoid the bitter leafy taste! For these reasons, capsules are great for new users. However, if you don’t mind the bitter taste and have a proper measuring utensil, kratom powder is a better option. Kratom powder will always be cheaper than capsules, and you will be able to taste firsthand how fresh the product is.

Make a Kratom Dosage Plan and Stick to It

Once you have decided the type and amount to start with (by way of research), create a diary of dosages to track how much you take, what the effect is, and how often you seem to take it. At first, this may not seem necessary, but as you take it for a while, a tolerance level will build, and you may start taking a little more each time, without realizing it. Keeping this dosage diary will help you maintain safe kratom habits.

Look around the web, searching on different Kratom terms, compile your information, and create a starting guide for your Kratom therapy. Then be consistent about it.

Choosing a Vendor

One of the most important aspects of taking Kratom responsibly and safely is finding a trustworthy vendor. With new Kratom vendors popping up everywhere, perhaps the best way to find a great company is on the internet. With a growing amount of companies popping up online, consumers should be cautious when choosing the right now. Reputable Kratom companies should have a professional-looking website, in-depth product information, and reviews across multiple platforms. Reputable vendors will always take the time to educate their customers about Kratom and the products they offer. This especially holds true for people seeking additional guidance because they have never taken Kratom before. To learn more, head on over to our blog about evaluating and choosing a Kratom vendor.

Use The Internet!

Another way to find a well-respected company is to hit the forums. is a great place to see whether your vendor is mentioned–either positively or negatively. As with most types of businesses, word of mouth is another great way to find good service. Don’t be afraid to ask around in your area to see if friends or family have specific websites they prefer. It’s worth noting that most unpleasant Kratom experiences stem from lack of vendor research and taking too much Kratom in one dose. With this being said, those who most enjoy their Kratom take the time to do proper vendor research first!

Using Kratom Responsibly is Said To Solve Many Problems, Though Not All.

Though many people frequently use kratom and benefit significantly from its effects, some also encounter mild side effects. If you were to take too much at once, it could cause slight nausea or constipation. These are problems. Avoid over-doing it, moderate your dosage, and you’ll be fine!

Some helpful sites for advice and user experience are Healthline and Reddit. Many vendor sites also have extensive information about dosages and types of Kratom, as well as forums.

Disregard the Hype About the “High”

Be careful about your expectations. Some Kratom users declare that it gives them a light “high” feeling or relaxed feeling. Since each of us is different in that respect, know your body and figure out what you can and cannot tolerate. Using kratom responsibly in itself is subjective to how it affects each person individually.


If you’re looking for a supplement to help with pain, anxiety, depression, energy, or focus, Kratom can be very beneficial. It’s good to pay careful attention to the amount you start with, the type you take, and your expectations for the result to maintain safe Kratom habits. You should take Kratom with an open mind, but don’t count on a complete cure for what ails you. Don’t expect a perfect solution with Kratom, just a lot of help.
