Hiya Kids,

My scale refuses to work, so I have been guesstimating my grams according to the volume I see in the baggie. This is obviously not very accurate.

I can't imagine that the different powders are SO different in weight that they can't be translated into, say, a quarter teaspoon or a half teaspoon, roughly?

Thanks for your help.

Gosh, I gave up measuring a long time ago. I don't believe anyone really does that lol. I just take a rounded teaspoon and whatever...Sorry if I sound like an idiot; I woke up in a fog. Probably shouldn't be typing.

I know one teaspoon is usually equal to 5 grams of Kratom. I would buy a new Digital Scale for measuring such a small amount. I have been taking Kratom for so long that I don't have to measure. I can just look at the Powder on the teaspoon & guess about how much it is.

Now if I can only figure out how much to take for me and hubby. I was going to start with the Brahma Bali, and I was going to start him out on the Mitra White Borneo or the Green Maeng Da. I have some more on order that isn't in yet. Might be in today, that is Wild Harvested Red Borneo, I think. It gets confusing.

So I had ordered a book from Amazon last week about Kratom for beginners, which is due in later today. But right now I have to guess what to do. I'm thinking of starting with 1 1/2 grams for me and 1 gram for my husband.

Hello ladywolf, I just went through my stash of kratom and measured out a leveled off teaspoon of each strain that I had. It measured anywhere from 1.9 grams at the lowest and 2.6 grams at the highest. None of them were packed down, I just did a scoop, leveled it off, and weighed it. This was with 9 different strains. The more grainy the powder the more it weighed. The fluffiest kratom I had was cambodian and it was at 1.9grams. The grainiest one was white sumatra, at 2.6 grams. The green and red bentuangie from PDO each measured 2.2grams, red indo was 2.3.. and so on.. The average would probably be 2.3 grams per teaspoon.
This is a pretty good guesstimate .. so a half teaspoon would probably be around 1 gram.. Hope this will help, it should.

Thanks to everyone!

Yes, Jason, that is about what I got when I divided a ten-ounce baggie-full into ten parts with a knife. About half a teaspoon per gram. Thanks for weighing and measuring out your own powders for me--I really appreciate it.

However, this differs radically from what you, madmax, said. You said five grams to the teaspoon. If this is true, then I have been taking enough to fell an elephant, and still feeling no effects! I don't have any ill effects from it either--but maybe I have been taking too much?

I can't afford a scale right now. In fact, I can't afford any more kratom either. I can't afford anything right now! I am a freelance writer and editor with NO WORK. Sigh...

I have a little more kratom left--I guess I will be conservative with it.

Thanks again.

You are Correct cybin_spores about the Teaspoon Measurement. I was wrong about the 5 grams. It depends on the size of Teaspoon that you are using. But if you are using a Standard Teaspoon it is usually around 2.5 grams for the weight of Kratom Powder. Now it is different for Crushed Leaf.
