When it comes to psychoactive substances, like Kratom, there are sadly no set dose recommendations. As mentioned on our ‘Effects‘ page, there are simply too many variables that can heavily influence the effects and intensity. Indonesian and Malaysian Kratom are often weaker than Thai Kratom and even the plant’s age, environment and time of harvest can influence its potency. You’ll also have to take into account what type of product you’re taking. For example, you’ll typically need a lot less of resin than of your normal dried leaves or powder in order to achieve the same effects.
Most commercially available Kratom (from reputable suppliers) often include some recommendations to help get you started. Be sure to take your time with this. More so than with other herbs, there is definitely a ‘bliss point’ that you want to try and find by building up slowly over time. Starting off low and then slowly increasing your amount is best in this case.
