kratom tea

What are the different ways to get kratom into your system? Most importantly, which one is the BEST one? Those are all valid and important questions. The good thing is, there are many ways to consume kratom.

The best one, so far, remains simply ingesting the raw kratom powder. While some might attempt to smoke it, we highly recommend you don’t do that.


It can take you up to an hour to feel the full effect of kratom. Sometimes, it takes a while to understand your body’s rhythm with this plant and how it works best in synergy with all the factors personal to you.

We suggest you start slow; preferably with 3 grams. Always remember, when it comes to kratom – less is more. Also, the quality plays a big role so be sure to buy only premium quality products. For that, you can check out Kratom Crazy, an online kratom store.

Without further ado..let’s look at the different methods of kratom consumption so you can decide which one sits right with you.

Oral Administration

This method continues to be the favorite of many. There’s really not much to it which is the beauty of it. It is simple and effective. All you need is the right kratom dosage and a glass of water. You can also grab any other beverage like juice or smoothie (no alcohol, though).

So, you toss the dose quickly at the back of your mouth and don’t wait for it to start settling on your tongue. The idea is to quickly wash it down with a big gulp of water so you don’t feel the bitter taste.

We also suggest avoiding using soda to wash it down.

Although you should not feel the taste, if there’s any lingering aftertaste that is hard for you to handle, we suggest pairing it with juices or having a chewing gum handy.

Kratom Drinks


Taking kratom with a juice is easily the most effective and simple way to mask the bitter taste. Orange, cranberry, and pineapple are the juices that pair well with kratom.

Just grab your favorite mug/cup. To this, add your favorite juice along with your kratom dose. Anywhere between 150-200 ml should suffice.

Keep stirring until there are no lumps and the powder appears to be fully dissolved. Remember, it could take some time (presumably a couple of minutes). So, you’re going to have to be patient. Once the dose is fully absorbed, drink it up!


This is the perfect choice if you want to up the ante in terms of nutritional value. Not only are you going to achieve the intended benefits of kratom, but you’re also going to reap the goodness of the milkshake itself. Let’s not forget, milkshakes are yet another excellent way to enjoy an otherwise awful tasting herb.

A chocolate protein kratom milkshake is the best thing to load up on right before hitting the gym.

You can also add some other supplements like collagen peptides or something else to your regular milkshake recipe to reap the full range of benefits.

Kratom Tea

Kratom tea is the latest ‘in’ thing in the arena. Everyone is talking about it and for good reason!

You can find a whole lot of different recipes for kratom tea. Here’s a simple, basic one just to give as an example –

Measure your accurate kratom dose and put it into a mug along with a sweetener of your choice. It can be agave, honey, maple syrup, sugar, stevia, etc. To this, add a tea bag that you normally brew.

Add hot water. Do not go overboard with the water otherwise, you might dilute it. Keep stirring until everything is fully blended. If there are lumps, you can strain the tea using a mesh cloth or a strainer.

You can choose to add milk or you can skip it. If you want to turn it into an iced tea, you can add a couple of ice cubes as well.

A quick Google search should give you plenty of interesting kratom tea recipes.

Kratom Capsules

Capsules are the best way if you don’t like the fuss of making milkshakes and teas. If you want a simple, straightforward method – capsules are undeniably the way to go.

What’s more, they are discreet which means you can carry them around without feeling weird about it. They also happen to be accurately dosed and pre-measured so it takes the guesswork out completely. Let’s not forget, the edible casing completely seals and masks the taste. If you just can’t stand the bitter taste of kratom, go with capsules.

But, do know that capsules happen to be more expensive than powdered kratom. However, if they serve your purpose, they are worth every penny.

Kratom Candies

Chocolates are great at masking basically any flavor you don’t like. Therefore, a chocolate kratom bar or candy is the perfect way to go about making a kratom delight.

You can also explore kratom gummies, gums, and hard candies. You can either find them in the market or you can find a recipe for DIY kratom candies on the internet. Since the kratom dose is not too high in each candy, you might not feel the same range of effects as a regular kratom dose. This is something you can try just for fun.

With Food

There’s literally an endless list of foods that you can add kratom to. You can go with chocolate puddings, yogurt, parfait, bone broth, soups, etc. But, we suggest sticking to the sweet stuff because they work better at masking the taste.

Final Thoughts

It’s super important that you measure your dose accurately. Most importantly, you need to establish and know your exact dose.

Once you’ve done that, feel free to play around with these methods like you would with any other everyday kitchen recipe.
