Here is the age-old question: Are there different dosages for different strains of Kratom? Although the question is straight forward the answer might not be. A common answer we find giving is it depends. There are many factors that go into taking Kratom so we want to give you some insight on different dosages for different strains of Kratom.
Difference in Kratom Strains
There are different types of Kratom; the strain varies depending on the color of the vein of the leaf. Another factor is the place of origin although most Kratom comes from Southeast Asia. We carry Maeng Da Kratom which originally comes from Thailand; but the name can also refer to Kratom from Indonesia and Malaysia. Other stains include Indo, Bali, Thai, Borneo, and more. These strains of Kratom get their name from their place of origin.
The color of the vein of the leaf is what determines what kind of Kratom it is. We carry White Maeng Da, Red Maeng Da, and Green Maeng Da Kratom. However, another popular color strain is the Yellow/Gold strain. Unfortunately we currently don’t carry this color strain. Now that you know a little bit more about the difference in Kratom strains there are differences in doses.
Differences In Kratom Dosages
The alkaloid content can vary between strains but not because of the color of the strain. This has more to do with the batch of Kratom rather than the color. Therefore, the vendor is more important than the strain. You’re able to find different color strains from one vendor that’s good quality; but the same color strain from a different vendor might differ. So because of this the dosage might differ from batch/strain.
When taking Kratom you typically will take a certain amount of grams depending on your tolerance. A typical starter amount can be between 2-3 grams but will increase over time. If you find that the color strain is less satisfying from a different brand you’ve had before you might need to increase. This is because a batch can be less potent from a different brand. Once you find a vendor that you like we advise to stick with it but even different batches can vary.
Finding Your Kratom Dosage Strain
When determining the dosage amount for a particular strain you have to take the vendor into consideration. One thing that really helps out a lot is past experience with that particular brand. You might have to increase or decrease the amount of Kratom if you’re taking it from a different vendor. We like to call this the adjust-to-taste method where you keep adjusting until you find the amount of Kratom you’re comfortable with. When considering how much Kratom to take, consider the batch/vendor and not necessarily the color strain.
