Are there any rules or guidelines about when you should take kratom?
Is it a good idea to take your kratom dose at night, right before retiring to bed at night? Or will it energize you too much and prevent sleep?
Should you take kratom first thing when you get up in the morning? Or should you give your body some time to wake up and settle into the day’s affairs, before introducing the strong effects of kratom into your system?
Should you use kratom routinely, every day, just as consistent maintenance of well-being? Or should you take it only when you feel unbearable pain or other unpleasant symptoms intensifying?
Your body will tell you when to take kratom. It may take some time to develop an innate feel for how to manage kratom and its effects, but you’ll get there. Advice from others, the experiences of strangers, and well-intended recommendations can give you ideas, but the royal road to your desired functioning is being sensitive to what your own body is telling you.
The timing of your kratom dosage is a very personal thing, but after a while, you may get to wondering if there any guidelines or interesting experiential anecdotes related to what time of day, or in what particular circumstances, one can most effectively take advantage of kratom’s multi-faceted benefits.
You could argue about this topic endlessly, but there do seem to be some general guidelines that may help you figure out the most ideal timing of your kratom doses. Let’s consider some of these suggestions.
Time of dosing relative to your personal itinerary, your schedule of activities and responsibilities, is a very important issue but contains so many different contexts.
Suffice it to say, your body will tell you how to manage your kratom use, whether or not you can safely drive a car, care for a baby, repair a roof, hike a long distance into the woods, stitch a sweater, or read books on heavy topics while soaring on kratom.
Laying down strict rules would not do much good. Each person is different. Kratom can help some people focus, but for others, it makes them dreamy, hazy, and less attentive, but dreamy and velvety. Some folks use kratom to overcome insomnia, while others use it to start their engines and get motivated every morning.
Time of day only matters in certain situations. For example, some customers say that no matter how much or how little kratom they take at night, it will keep them awake like a few cups of strong coffee. Then again, you may have a favorite time of day to take your dose.
Perhaps you wake up, turn on some music, brush your teeth, eat a grapefruit, toast a slice of organic bread, cut up a melon, brew some coffee, swallow some lysine, magnesium, multiple vitamins, probiotics capsules, and other tonics and supplements.
So it makes sense to fit in your kratom dose at that time, too. After putting boiling water from your kettle into the French press loaded with coffee, you are in the habit of also pour simmering (not boiling) water into a cup containing your powder dose,
As with most medicines and dietary supplements, kratom should probably be used moderately and routinely.
If you have severe symptoms that require substances for you to live a somewhat normal and productive life, you likely want to keep that kratom goodness flowing through your system without interruption.
Keeping in mind that Less Is More when it comes to kratom, that you don’t need to keep escalating your dose amount or frequency, and that the Lowest Possible Dose is the best, you may wonder about one time of day versus another, or taking a special booster dose in preparation for a dentist or eye doctor visit, etc.
Also realize how to be savvy and handle tolerance successfully.
You have miserable symptoms to counteract – but at the same time, you certainly understand the need to be wary, self-aware, and careful.
You need to maintain a mature, reasonable attitude, not a “party animal” mentality.
You most definitely don’t want to overdo it, splurge, or be extravagant and excessive, no matter the reason for a celebration or desire for relief. Taking too much kratom, or taking it too often, can start creating a whole new set of problems for you. You don’t want that.
You can be consistent in taking your dose daily – but interrupting your dosing schedule, skipping days or weeks, abstaining to do a reset, and avoid developing a tolerance, is smart.
Once you get past the first 3 or 4 days, it’s generally easy to keep going, being free from kratom for a week, or two, or a whole month. Your body will probably like having an extended break from kratom. Your digestive system and bowels may be happy that the kratom intake has stopped for a while.
Now, some people cannot do this. They would have a miserable day if they took nothing to combat their dysphoric, annoying symptoms. To refrain from taking something is nearly impossible and not a comfort. Still, if you can tough up yourself and endure a day or a few days without using any kratom or other symptom-stopping substances, you’ll benefit your body in multiple ways.
When should a person take their kratom dose?
When it feels right. When it makes sense to you alone. That’s exactly how personal kratom dosage timing is.
When a person takes kratom is entirely up to them and there’s not much to say about it really, aside from the safety and tolerance concerns already discussed.
Your adventure in the benefits and social advantages of kratom usage will be relatively smooth and non-drama tinged, as you maintain a wise and mature attitude, don’t deliberately abuse it, and you keep on learning about all the many interesting and beneficial aspects of kratom and how it works.
