After deciding which dose suits you best, it’s important to make sure your measurement is accurate to achieve your desired effects. There are only a few ways to measure kratom powder accurately:

After the second one, it’s best to avoid giving yourself any additional treatments until the kratom wears off after 5 hours.

If you’re taking kratom too much, too often, then you need to slow down a bit. You can start by mixing up different strains consistently.
