What are Kratom Pills?
Kratom is a Southeast Asian herb that has taken the western world by a storm. Asian countries such as Thailand have been using this plant for centuries. They have used it to boost mental focus, concentration, enhance alertness, relieve pain, promote sexual performance among many other functions. The herb didn’t become a hit in the western countries until multiple studies started showing just how beneficial it is. This saw its popularity increase significantly both in America and other European countries.
As more people start to embrace this powerful alternative medicine, it is essential that they learn on how they can use it to get the most out of it. Kratom capsules are one of the many forms in which you can get this herb.
Kratom pills are available on different online platforms. However, you have to be very careful when shopping for these pills. The quality of the Kratom pills you are taking will decide whether you will achieve the benefits you are looking for or not. Even worse, taking pills of poor quality will result in severe adverse reactions which can escalate into serious medical complications. Therefore, you must be very keen on who your supplier is. Do thorough research on each vendor before placing your orders. Look at the user reviews for their products, check the concentration levels of the products they are offering and compare various vendors before settling on one.
Some people find the process of scrutinizing different online vendors too exhausting to undertake. Others have been constantly let down by different vendors and gave up on all online retailers. If you feel like that describes you, you will love the fact that you can make Kratom capsules yourself from the comfort of your home. Yes, with the use of easily available materials, you can make your own high-quality Kratom pills. This means that you will be in control of the purity and contents of the pills. This eliminates the possibility of taking contaminated or ineffective pills. All you have to do is pay close attention while making them.
The process of making Kratom pills isn’t exactly easy. Putting the Kratom powder in capsules alone can be very difficult especially if it is done manually. The good thing is that at the end of the day, you will be taking a high-quality product that will deliver the desired effects in the safest way possible.
How to make Kratom Pills?
Making Kratom pills will be a bit challenging in the first few attempts. It will also be quite a time consuming if you won’t have any machines to help you out. After a few trials and with the right equipment this process should get much easier.
Here is how you can make Kratom capsules:
- Choose the capsules you want to use
There are two types of capsules that are safe for human consumption and digestion i.e.
- Gelatin capsules – Gelatin capsules are very common. These affordable capsules are made using animal by-products containing chemicals that are usually fed to animals. Since they are made of animal by-products, it’s vital that you check out if you might be allergic to the capsules before using them.
- Veggie capsules – Veggie capsules are vegetarian-friendly, non-GMO and free from gluten, preservatives and other chemicals. They are made of cellulose, hypromellose and purified water. Veggie capsules dissolve much faster than gelatin capsules and they are also safe from most allergic reactions. As you can guess, veggie capsules cost more than gelatin capsules but the good thing is they are much safer and they also dissolve quicker.
- Choose the capsule size
Capsules are available in different sizes. It’s important that you get the appropriate size as this will make your dosing much easier. Bear in mind that if you use capsules that are too small, you will have to swallow too many of them to attain the required dose. You also don’t want to use capsules that are too big as they will become really difficult to swallow.
Some of the sizes you can choose from include:
- Size ‘000’ – 1-gram capacity
- Size ‘00’- 0.375 grams capacity
- Size ‘0’ – 0.5 grams capacity
- Size ‘1’ – 0.4 grams capacity
- Size ‘2’ – 0.3 grams capacity
- Fill the capsules
After selecting your ideal capsule and acquired them in the perfect size, the next step involves filling the capsules with the Kratom powder. This process can take quite a lot of time if you do it manually. To save on time, you can purchase a capsule filling machine. Some of these machines are even sold with a tamper which helps in packing the Kratom powder into each capsule. It’s advisable that you get this machine especially if you are planning on using Kratom capsules for a long time. If you are still experimenting on Kratom capsules and you’re not sure whether they’ll be a good fit for you or not, then you can skip on the machine.
You can also invest on a scale. These will help you to dose the Kratom capsules accurately.
A parchment paper can also be very important here. With the paper, you can collect all the Kratom powder getting spilled while filling the capsules. It helps to minimize wastage.
After filling the capsules, you just wrap it up by covering the caps with the other half. With time this process will not just feel easy but it will also become really fun to do.
Drawbacks of Using Kratom Capsules
Kratom capsules are not without their own limitations. For one, Kratom caps are not fast acting. After swallowing these pills, you have to give your body some time to digest the outer layer of the capsules before the powder inside is accessed and absorbed into your system.
The delayed action also means that you have to wait for quite a long time before you know whether the dose you’ve used is working or not. Therefore, it’ll take long before you know if you should top up the dose or not. Of course, this is only an issue for beginners who are still unsure about the doses that work for them.
Filling the capsules will also be very time consuming if you don’t have the filling and tampering machine.
Types of Kratom Capsules
You can make different types of Kratom capsules using the different strains of Kratom available. Some of the most popular types of Kratom pills include:
Maeng Da Kratom Capsules
These are a favorite to a lot of people thanks to their immense potency. Some people argue that Maeng Da Kratom is the most powerful strain of Kratom and hence if you can make capsules from it, you can enjoy vast benefits at very low doses.
Maeng Da Kratom Capsules can be used to improve focus, for pain relief and sedation. When used in excess, the capsules will even deliver a euphoric feeling.
Red vein Maeng Da Kratom is the most powerful of the three types of Maeng Da Kratom available. These caps can be used for different purposes but they are particularly helpful in fighting opiate withdrawal symptoms.
Green Malay Kratom
Green Malay Kratom has a mild stimulant effect when used at low doses but it doesn’t have a strong analgesic effect.
The mild but effective nature of Green Malay Kratom makes it an excellent choice to both beginners and experienced Kratom users.
Red Bali Kratom Capsules
Red Bali Kratom caps is another extremely powerful type of Kratom caps. These caps contain Kratom powder from the big leaves of the Red Vein Bali tree. They contain lots of alkaloids that deliver different effects.
At low doses, the strain has an uplifting effect but it becomes more sedative as you increase the doses.
Kratom Capsules Dosage
The exact Kratom caps you will have to take will hugely depend on your body’s tolerance, the effects you are looking for and how powerful the particular strain you are using is.
To make sure that you don’t start off on the wrong foot, it’s advisable that you start with around 1.5grams. You’ll have to consider the size of the capsules you used to know how many of them you will swallow. Depending on how the reaction will be, you can increase the dose slightly after half an hour.
To make it easier for you to know how many capsules you need to take, you have to research the particular strain you have used and checked the recommended dosage under it.
The only significant drawback about Kratom pills is that you may have to swallow a lot of the pills to get the dosage you need. Other than that, these pills are a very convenient way of consuming Kratom. You can pop the pills from anywhere without raising any red flags. They will also save you from the miserable taste of Kratom powder.
