Taking the Smallest Amount Possible is the Best way to go with Kratom. I sometimes dial down my dose about 25% & get about the same effects as far as Potency. That means I was wasting 25% of the Kratom if want to Look at it that way.

Everybody has that Certain Strain that gives them the Best Mood Lift & usually that one is their Favorite Strain. You can't go wrong with any Malay or Maeng Da Strains.

Try one and a half? Sometimes that works for me. Not always. Every time give a lower dose a fair try (set my timer for 40 mins), my tolerance goes down ever so slightly so the next regular sized dose is more enjoyable as well! Having the patience is very difficult sometimes!

Word Laurie!!!
I always take 2 tsp ( 95% of the time ) these days ... so maybe the knockout strain cut even lower would be something to look into , don’t believe I’ve ever taken less than 2tsp...

For the longest time I was taking 3 tsp or 1 Tbs.... I will say that I really enjoy the benefits tremendously with the down regulation of my dose amount.... yes... we’ve touched upon this a many a times ... less is more with Kratom .... taking 2/3 of what I used to take is WAY BETTER !!! Feels like I’m taking more !!! I wonder ... what will 1 tsp do? I’ll report back .... hard to imagine it being better than 2 tsp... but Kratom is a riddle I like figuring out .. at least always learning more , and then more , and then recalibrating what you thought you knew .... haha, yep, it keeps you guessing but in all that guessing there’s consistent relief , 8/10 x for me .. if not more !!!

Let’s not forget that dialing DOWN on dose can produce a completely different experience. In particular with strains that are “sedating”. Take half of that dose and you’re zipping around like a hummingbird! In some cases! LOL

I should point out that “most “ greens are how I like them to be ... butbevety so often I’ve tried diff batches/ vendors and have found those greens to be of knock out effects ..

Which are good for nighttime to shift down but I primarily use for the pain relief and energy/ moodlift ...

I’m testing some Green Riau from a new vendor and I liked it so much I’m putting in a 1/2 kilo order ... amazing moodlift , and decent pain relief ... if it’s the same batch as the sample , gonna be stazoked!!!!

That’s so fascinating how different we all react to “strain colors”.... greens for me are energy , pain relief and moodlift...

Sedating for you ..? Far out


I thought it was weird myself. Couldn't figure out why I was so tired at times, and I finally put two and two together and realized it had to be the green strains that I currently have. I still need to do some experimenting to make sure, but it seems to be the case.

Im a serial lurker, but this post was calling for me to chime in. :cheer:

I wrote up a mini-blog on another website about strains and veins... there is a lot to say here. I think I will make a whole separate post as to not clog up this thread.

Definitely reds since pain relief is my main reason for using Kratom. However, I also find the reds very useful for promoting a really good sleep!

Off all the reds I would list in order red borneo, red Horn as top of the list then some other reds such as Red Bentuangie, Red Sumatra,and Red Maeng Da.

I also have an Indo Maeng Da that is as good as any red for pain relief, but a little more energizing so I use that a lot for mornings.
