A Guide to Enhanced Kratom Dosage

Spoons with kratom powder

Many experienced kratom users turn to stronger kratom products for a more potent experience. However, how to dose these kratom products can sometimes be a problem. Unlike regular kratom powder, enhanced kratom and kratom extracts require much lower doses to obtain the desired effects. So, in this article, you will find a recommendable enhanced kratom dosage guide both for newbies to this kind of product and for expert users. But we will also talk about how enhanced kratom works and discuss its properties.


What is Enhanced Kratom?


Regular kratom powder is simply kratom leaves that have been dried and crushed to create a fine powder. There is nothing else. Kratom leaves contain mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine alkaloids that act on some of your opioid receptors triggering different effects. These effects range from pain relief to euphoria, from relaxation to energy.

For many kratom users, the effects that these regular kratom strains are enough to cope with their issues (chronic pain, anxiety, depression…). However, when you have been using kratom for a while —especially in large doses, you may need more potent products to get those effects. And this is when kratom extracts and enhanced kratom come in handy.

But what is enhanced kratom? Enhanced kratom is regular kratom powder containing an extra amount of alkaloids mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine that have been artificially added. Of course, the result of this process is a more potent type of kratom. And that is something that you cannot forget when considering your enhanced kratom dosage.


Alkaloid Content in Enhanced Kratom


The alkaloid levels of an enhanced kratom product are not always clear. Not all vendors who sell enhanced kratom disclose the alkaloid content of their products. However, it is very unlikely to find enhanced kratom products that contain more than two percent of alkaloids. And why is that? Because in those states where the Kratom Consumer Protection Act has passed, the alkaloid level of kratom cannot be greater than 2%. So, kratom vendors will not risk selling products containing higher levels than what the law allows. Even so, enhanced kratom contains very high levels of alkaloids. And this is something to bear in mind when talking about enhanced kratom dosage.


Are Kratom Extracts and Enhanced Kratom the Same Thing?


Many people think enhanced kratom and kratom extracts are the same. However, they are not. Kratom extracts are concentrated forms of kratom powder that have been “extracted” to produce a product smaller in volume that contains a higher level of alkaloids. You will often see that kratom extracts are labeled as 25X, 50X, 100X. Does that mean that a kratom extract can be one hundred times more potent than a regular kratom strain? No, it just means that by using 25 grams (or 50, or 100g) of regular powder, you get one gram of kratom extract.

Moreover, kratom extracts have higher levels of alkaloids. But these alkaloids are obtained naturally during the extraction process. However, in the case of enhanced kratom, vendors add these alkaloids through different artificial chemical processes.

Both enhanced kratom strains and kratom extracts are more potent than kratom powder. Therefore, only expert users should use them.

Enhanced Kratom Dosage Guide


Now, what is the correct enhanced kratom dosage? That answer will depend on several factors:

  • Tolerance levels
  • Experience with kratom
  • Regular doses of kratom powder
  • Uses of kratom

Nevertheless, there is an enhanced kratom dosage guide that you can follow (even if you adjust it later to your own needs):

  • 0.5g: This amount is ideal for new users of enhanced kratom. It may sound like a very small enhanced kratom dosage, but if it is the first time that you try enhanced kratom, you should avoid higher doses.
  • 5 – 1g: This dose will bring mild, yet pleasant effects.
  • 1 – 3g: With this type of enhanced kratom dosage, you will likely enjoy all the benefits and effects of kratom.

Doses higher than 3 grams of enhanced kratom are not recommendable since the risks of side effects are very high. Also, a large enhanced kratom dosage will make you build tolerance quicker.


Tips to Use Enhanced Kratom


Learning the right enhanced kratom dosage may not be enough to use these products. There are other things to consider before using enhanced kratom:

  • Do not use enhanced kratom if you are new to kratom: Enhanced kratom is a very potent form of kratom. Therefore, kratom newbies should avoid it. That is the best way to prevent bad kratom experiences.
  • Avoid enhanced kratom on an empty stomach: We know that kratom kicks quicker on an empty stomach. But using kratom on an empty stomach also makes you likelier to suffer from side effects, let alone if you are using an enhanced product.
  • Do not use enhanced kratom if you do not need it: You may think that enhanced kratom is more potent than regular kratom. And you are right. But being more potent does not mean that it is better. So, if kratom powder is working for you, stick to it. While enhanced kratom and extracts are more potent, they can also cause side effects and kratom tolerance more easily.

Moreover, if you notice that enhanced kratom is not working for you, you may need to consider taking a kratom break rather than increasing your enhanced kratom dosage.
