Potentiating Kratom

What is Potentiate Kratom?

Potentiating kratom means using an herb, fruit, or process to make a serving of kratom more effective. If you feel like you’re consuming too much or your usual serving size is less effective, then trying a natural way to potentiate your kratom might be the right move for you. There are a number of ways to potentiate your daily servings. We are going to discuss some of the most popular potentiators being used today.

Herb Potentiators

Some popular herbal potentiators are cayenne pepper, chamomile, and turmeric. A small amount of cayenne pepper and turmeric can just be added to a serving (preferably in capsules for taste). Both are commonly used as an herbal remedy for inflammation and pain. There are two ways to add camomile to a serving. Either add dried chamomile to capsules, or make a tea and add kratom to the tea. Chamomile is generally used to enhance relaxation and relieve anxiety. Herbs like akuamma and cat’s claw are also known to affect the perceived potency of kratom. Austin Organic Village sells akuamma and cat’s claw. They are also known to help with pain, mood, and inflammation on their own and have been used for thousands of years in different regions. 

Citrus Potentiators

Any citrus juice can help enhance your servings. There are many ways to use citrus to potentiate, so you can get creative.  Consumers have been known to soak their kratom in lemon juice or other citrus juices for at least 30 minutes and up to a couple hours before consumption, making a sort of shot. Some freeze their kratom in a cup with lemon juice and water until a red bubble appears, this is known as the “red bubble method.” Perhaps the easiest way is just to swallow it down and chase using your choice of citrus juice or lemonade. Just be aware that consuming large amounts of citrus juice all the time will increase sugar intake. One of the main complaints by those who use lemonade or orange juice is that they start to have stomach issues from the large amounts of citric acid they are consuming. 

What About Extract?

Perhaps the most well known potentiator is extract. The difference with extract compared to other options is that extract merely adds more of the alkaloids that are already in the kratom. This may not be an effective solution for those who are worried about reducing their serving size. However, extract is an excellent solution for those severe days where a little something more is needed. 

The Wrap Up 

As discussed, there are so many ways to make your kratom consumption more efficient. Many of these methods come with their own health benefits. Always do your research to figure out which options will fit your unique needs and tastes.
