One thing that we love about kratom, aside from its many interesting and potentially useful properties, is the fact that it comes in so many forms. Each form is referred to as a delivery method, and each delivery method absorbs into the body at its own rate and provides its own unique period of activation in the system, as well as its own potency level. This means that those who are interested in starting a kratom routine can choose a method that truly suits their preferences and goals.
But, what happens if you take two different delivery methods at one time? Well, today, we will be answering that question.
The Different Forms of Kratom
Before we talk about combining delivery methods, let’s break down each one that’s widely available.
- Capsules: Kratom capsules contain ground, dried kratom. They travel through the digestive tract before taking effect, which means that it can take up to two hours for the kratom to activate. However, it’s one of the most long-lasting methods in terms of its effects.
- Teas/Beverages: Take effect slightly sooner than capsules due to the absorption rate of the liquid. Kratom teas and beverages can stay active in the system for quite a while.
- Tinctures: Kratom tinctures will be felt more potently than delivery methods that are ingested, because the sublingual tissue allows for a highly bioavailable absorption method.
- Flower: Will create the most potent experience in terms of how it’s felt in the body, and activate within minutes for most people, while being relatively short-lived.
Reasons for Taking Multiple Forms of Kratom
So, why would someone wish to take multiple forms of kratom in the first place? Well, there are a few reasons. One is that they wish to extend the period of activation. For example, smoking kratom flower and consuming a kratom capsule at the same time allows the kratom to peak in the system quickly from the inhalation method, while lasting for hours long after from the ingestion method.
Another reason is that different delivery methods may produce slightly different effects. In other words, some may find that using a tincture helps with some things, while drinking a tea helps better with others.
What Can Happen if You Take Multiple Forms of Kratom
Well, it actually depends on many factors, with the most important one being the milligram strength and dosage level of each. As of now, little is known about what can happen if you take extraordinarily high doses of kratom, which is why it’s important to make sure that you take an appropriate amount of each delivery method.
Depending on how much you take of each determines how potent the overall kratom experience will be. It also depends on which delivery methods you combine, as some combinations will cause an overlap of peak effects from each, while others will spread out the kratom experience gradually.
How to Get the Most Out of Daily Kratom Combinations
Now, let’s talk about what you should bear in mind prior to taking two forms of kratom at the same time.
Make Sure That All of Your Kratom Products are Equally High in Quality
First, always make sure that all of the kratom products you’re taking are equally high in quality. Taking two low-quality kratom products won’t be conducive to having a positive experience overall.
Be Conscious of the Milligram Strengths of Each
Pay close attention to the milligram strength of each product, which represents the potency level. Taking two extremely potent doses of kratom is very different from taking two very low-potency products. Determine how strong you want the kratom to be, and choose your milligram strengths accordingly.
Consider Starting with a Low Dose of Each Kratom Product
If you’re still relatively new to kratom, opt for a low dose of each product when you first begin combining delivery methods. This way, you can gradually increase it as needed, as you may not need to take a full dose of each when taking two different forms at the same time.
Pay Attention to How You Feel
Of course, after doubling up on different forms of kratom, you should pay attention to how you feel to determine whether or not you wish to continue a double-delivery method routine.
These days, it’s easy to find kratom in an abundance of forms, including capsules, tinctures, flower and beverages. While many people have success with just one type of form each day, others find that by taking two different forms at once, they’re more capable of achieving what it is that they want with this plant.
