When time is not an issue, many kratom fans prefer kratom powder. This gives them the most diversity in their kratom consumption and dosage. Kratom users can add the kratom powder to a smoothie, create a kratom tea, or even measure and make their own kratom capsules.

Kratom shots provide a quick delivery method and faster absorption. If you’re a kratom user more concerned about convenience and optimal results, our kratom shots are often chosen by people who want to take kratom.

The capsules have the convenience of being pre-measured, so users experience the same type and dose of effects each time they consume kratom. Taking kratom capsules has one additional benefit, the capsule shell does not have an effect on the potency of the kratom powder.

Capsules across the supplement industry remain a consistent favorite, and it’s no different with kratom fans. Kratom capsules are a discreet and portable method of consuming kratom when you want it. Whether an occasional or regular kratom users, many people take kratom capsules to get their desired impact.

How Kratom Works

Kratom effects are different from person to person. How it works depends on the kratom dosage and the frequency of use.

Kratom has two main active chemicals that affect the body: 

  1. Mitragynine – This is the main active ingredient of kratom. Mitragynine acts as a stimulant in low doses but can act as a sedative at higher doses.
  2. 7-hydroxy mitragynine – This is a derivative of mitragynine. Studies indicate that it is the main active ingredient, and it has been shown to bind to the brain’s opioid receptors and is thought to be 5-7 times more potent than morphine.

Like many other herbal remedies and drugs, kratom works by altering the chemical balance in the body. It enhances or dampens the activity of certain chemicals in the brain, which in turn has an effect on the person’s mood, perception, and thinking. Kratom activates opioid receptors in the brain, works in a manner similar to opioid drugs like heroin, and is regulated by the same brain cells the opioids are. This is what distinguishes kratom from other stimulants or drugs. Kratom is said to work by binding to the opioid receptor, enhancing the effects of the opioid drugs, and helping addicts kick the habit.


Kratom has been used for thousands of years, and it is yet to be discovered why it is effective in helping people with various ailments. Yet many people choose to take kratom for one reason or another. As a result, some countries and states have banned its use. Others have banned its use but allowed it to be used in a controlled way.

Regardless of your reason for taking kratom, always abide by the recommended kratom dosage and slowly increase your intake until the desired effect is reached. Unfortunately, like other herbal remedies, kratom also has its side effects.

So if you want to use kratom, be it for entertainment, health, or just because you want to, be sure to do so in moderation.
