Frequently Asked Questions

Is Kratom Addictive and can I build a tolerance?

Kratom is about as addictive as a cup of coffee and like caffeine you can build a tolerance.  While Mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine are the two main alkaloids in kratom there are many other alkaloids that make up the kratom leaf.  And each strain has different amounts of these alkaloids.  This is why we recommend switching strains occasionally to minimize tolerance issues to that particular strains alkaloid make up.

How long will it take for me to start feeling the effects of Kratom?

It depends on the person and how empty your stomach is, but you should start feeling the affects around 15-60 minutes.

How many times a day can I take Kratom?

This is really up to you.  Some people dose up to 3 times a day and are very happy with the results.  Personally I only dose once a day in the morning to help with anxiety and give me a little bit of energy, but that is just me.  If you are taking Kratom to help you stay off of pain pills, suffer from PTSD, or a severe case of anxiety then it may be necessary to dose up to 3 times a day.  This is something you will have to experiment with to find what works with you.

How can I take my Kratom powder?

If you don’t have bad gag reflexes than the fastest easiest way is to use the toss and wash method. Simply take a spoonful drop it in the back of your mouth and wash it down with your favorite drink. Or you can use gel capsules, which you can buy already prepared here from us or empty capsules at your vitamin store or cheapest online(  Or you can parachute by wrapping the kratom dose in a piece of toilet paper(single ply preferred) and then swallowing it with a drink(It’s not as bad as it sounds).

It is my first time. How much Kratom should I take?

In general a good starting dose of Kratom would be about 3 grams or 1 1/2 teaspoons.  This should be enough to feel the effects without it being too strong.  Where your right dose is going to vary person to person, so you will have to experiment gradually increasing the dose 1-2 grams at a time or whatever you feel comfortable with. Our capsules contain just over 1 gram each.  A teaspoon is about 2 grams and tablespoon about 6 grams.  Here is a general dosage chart:

Mild dose               2-4 grams                 1-2 tsps.

Medium dose         3-7 grams                 1.5-3.5 tsps.

Strong dose            6-7 grams                 3-3.5 tsps.

Very Strong dose   8-16 grams              4-8 tsps.

Kratom makes me itchy. Is there something I can do about this?

Yes.  If you are getting itchy from taking too much Kratom, then Benadryl and most other allergy pills will work wonders for this.

How do I make Kratom Tea?

Here is a good Kratom Tea recipe.

Do you accept Paypal?

No.  Unfortunately PayPal considers Kratom high risk for chargebacks and it violates their Terms Of Service.  So as much as we would like to give our customers this payment option we cannot at this time.

Why don’t you carry more strains?

Kratom Pros believes in only providing the best kratom that works.  We don’t believe in carrying a strain just because it has a popular name or is cheap.  Most kratom is not that good and we won’t carry it.  We have gone through 40-50 different suppliers to find the best and got rid of all the strains that didn’t meet our expectations.  Our goal is to have at least 2-3 really good strains of each color.

Is Kratom an Opiate or Opioid?

No.  Kratom does not contain any opiates or opioids whatsoever.  It does attach to mu-opioid and kappa-opioid receptors, but it does not bind to them like opiates. Which is why kratom is safer and does not posses the same dreaded withdrawal symptoms of opiates.  This is why it helps with pain relief, sedation, getting off pain pills, and other opiate like qualities without the negative side effects.

Where does Kratom Pros get their Kratom from and is it fresh?

There are NO middle men.  We get our Kratom directly from the source in Borneo, Indonesia that is hand selected by our farmer.  So we can provide the freshest and most potent Kratom to our customers.

Will it say what the contents are on the outside of my package?

No.  The return address, name, or anything else on the outside will have nothing to do with Kratom.  Don’t worry here at Kratom Pros we value our customer’s privacy and realize not everyone may agree with the controversial subject of Kratom.  So for those who don’t agree, it is up to you whether you want to tell them and for those who do well enjoy!

Where does Kratom Pros Ship to?

We ship to whatever address you give us as long it is not outside the US.  We are based out of Texas, so we follow Texas based laws.  While we haven’t had any issues shipping to anywhere in the US, it is the buyer’s responsibility to check with their own state’s local laws.

What is the difference between the Green, Red, and White strains?

  • Green strains are a good all around strain and include the best qualities of Red and White.  They also provide a much better euphoric/happy feeling then the other strains.  This is why it is the most popular strain.
  • Red strains are also popular as well.  This strain provides more of a relaxing opiate like feeling and would be best used if you are in some pretty bad physical pain.
  • White strains are a little less common.  I would recommend the white strain if you have trouble focusing, lack energy, or if that cup of coffee just doesn’t get you going in the morning anymore.
