What Does It Mean To Potentiate Kratom?
Potentiating kratom means using an herb, fruit, or other substance 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 serving. We are going to discuss some of the most popular potentiators being used for kratom today.
Some popular herbal potentiators are cayenne pepper, chamomile, and turmeric. A small amount of cayenne pepper and turmeric can 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 powder 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. They can also help with pain, mood, and inflammation on their own and have been used for thousands of years in different regions.
Any citrus juice can help enhance your kratom 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 of 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.”
The easiest way is to swallow it down and chase using your choice of citrus juice or lemonade. This is commonly known as the “Toss and Wash” method. Just be aware that consuming large amounts of citrus juice frequently will increase sugar intake and can lead to stomach aches.
What About Extract?
Perhaps the most well-known potentiator is kratom extract. The difference with extract compared to other options is that extract merely adds more of the alkaloids that are already in kratom. This may not be an effective solution for those who are worried about reducing their serving size. However, an extract is an excellent solution for those severe days where a little something more is needed.
The Wrap Up
There are numerous ways to make your kratom consumption more efficient and potentiate its effects. Always do your research to figure out which ways to potentiate kratom to fit your unique needs and tastes, ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience.
