Watch This Video To Learn The Best Way To Measure Kratom Doses
If you use too much kratom it can make you feel sick. If you don’t use enough you won’t feel anything at all. It’s important to find a balance between the two extremes and burn just the right amount of kratom.
If you use the right amount you’ll experience the full range of benefits that kratom can offer. You’ll also save money by not wasting it.
What Are Some Wrong Ways To Measure Kratom?
Using a random spoon you find in your kitchen drawer is a bad idea. It’s hard to get consistent doses each time and impossible to figure out how to use a fraction more or a fraction less of that spoonful.
Pouring out the kratom by hand and “eyeballing” it is also an inconsistent way to measure it.
And the worst of all is not measuring it at all.
What Are The Best Ways To Measure Kratom?
Using measuring spoons is okay.
Using a scale is better.
Using a scale that measures out to at least two decimal places is the best.
How Do You Actually Measure It?
Scale Method (The Best Method)
Get out the kratom you intend to use and a scale. I prefer a digital scale that can measure in grams and that measures out to at least two decimal places, like this one.
Get a container to hold the kratom. I use a small plastic container like the kind you would pack in your lunch box to hold salad dressing.
Set the container on the scale and turn on the scale. The scale should read zero. If it doesn’t you need to zero your scale. I just push the TARE button on mine.
Scoop kratom into the container while watching the reading on the scale. Once your reach the amount of kratom you need you’re ready to use the kratom.

Measuring Spoon Method (Second-Best Method)
Get out the kratom you intend to use and a measuring spoon of your choice. I’ve found that one-quarter teaspoons work best.
Scoop out some kratom, making sure that the teaspoon is completely filled and there aren’t any little air pockets.
Scrape off the excess kratom so that the kratom is level with the sides of the teaspoon. Avoid tamping down the kratom.
Generally speaking, one-quarter teaspoon is equal to about 1.5 grams of kratom. This can vary depending on the type of kratom, how finely it’s milled, and the moisture content, so this is only an approximation.
Avoid measuring out heaping teaspoons because the amount you get will vary widely each time. Here’s an example of a heaping teaspoon.
Measure out how many teaspoons you’ll need and now you’re ready to use the kratom.
