Its worth noting that with Kratom less is more. The lighter the dose the more energic it will make you vs heavier doses making it more sedative. Each person has to find their own “sweet spot”. Every person has their own dose and you have to sort of test the waters and see. But start small! Start with a teaspoon (which is about 2 to 4 grams). Wait for the effects. Kratom does have a noticeable effect. Not a “high” but a mental focus that you can tell. Wait 30 minutes and if no noticeable effect then take another teaspoon. You should not have to exceed much more beyond that. Some people who have a higher tolerance might not to increase dose but once again start small and find your sweet spot. You will be able to tell the difference in kratom dosage depending on food intake. Finding your proper dose is easiest found on an empty stomach.
