Beginners Guide to Kratom

Part 2


- If you burn more than 5 times/week, you should rotate your kratom

- Only burn one strain per day. You can burn that one strain as many times as you want, just don’t change it until the next day.

- Rotating kratom means alternating types each day. If Monday you have a Slow type, then Tuesday you should either have a Fast or Moderate type. There’s an example in a schedule below

- If your tolerance gets too high, you can use a ‘wash-out’ (article coming soon) to reduce it. Basically you take a break from kratom, but there’s ways I will talk about soon that makes this easy and more efficient

- If you plan to burn regularly, plan out what strains will be used on what days. So this way fast strains will be used on gym days, and slow strain will be used on a day like a Sunday where you just chill out. Use the table below to get an idea

What You Need To Know

The most important thing you need to know is that the quality in kratom can vary so much. I’ve tried around a dozen different vendors and only 2 of them could produce the effects described in this guide. Most kratom out there barely works, and even some I’ve tried can give you anxiety (often from smokeshops).  The better vendors remove the stems & veins from the leaf before they blend it; to make sure it’s potent and not full of ‘fillers’. Another concern is the cleanliness.  Kratom is picked by workers in Indonesia and other parts of Southeast Asia then put in a bag sit.  You never know how well of a cleaning process there is (if any) and if it just sat in a warehouse for months on end.

So often people will try kratom from some less than reputable vendor, then write it off as nothing special from a very sub-par experience.

In this guide I will be recommending the best vendor I’ve ever tried so far- but let me know if you find some contenders.  The difference is really night and day from the bad stuff. Whether you use my recommendation or not, it’s a good idea to just order a small amount first to make sure you respond well to it and you find which types work best for you. Then, you can decide after to get more and/or start rotating.


- Avoid extracts- Skyrockets your tolerance. Regular kratom is a powder while extracts are sold in a liquid form

- Avoid kratom capsules- It’s not that bad but you’ll likely have to pay more for the kratom (the caps) and need to take up to a dozen caps at once

- Side Effects- If you burn too much, there is potential for nausea. Most often burning too much means you’ll become a bit drowsy.

- Avoid crushed leaf- Crushed leaf is, as you probably guessed, the kratom leaf crushed down instead of being blended into a powder. To be honest I’ve never actually tried it, but the overall consensus is that it’s not as great.  If you like making tea out of kratom, it may not be a bad option.

My Recommended Vendor

I recommend CoastlineKratom

One of the more popular and highly rated vendor out there. Their price is really good and you don't need nearly as many grams per dose as most other vendors. Let me know what you guys think of it.

Starter Pack - 3 Strains

First strain I recommend is Red Vein Bali.  Bali is the staple strain that is synonymous with kratom.  If you want to try a SLOW strain- this is the one to go to.

Second strain I recommend to try is Maeng Da. Even though its red veined (usually means slower type) it being from Thailand brings the properties of it being a FAST strain.  This is one of the best fast strains out there

Third strain to get (and be the first strain you burn) is Green Malay.  It’s an all around balanced MODERATE strain which shows all that kratom has to offer. It’s actually a Bali/Indonesian blend. Odds are you’ll love it. If you only want to try 1 strain, this is it.

That's It!

That's basically all you need to know for now to start taking advantage of what kratom has to offer. I hope kratom has much of a positive impact on your life as it has on mine.  Even if you don't adopt the full kratom lifestyle, you'll still likely find at least some use for it for things like relaxing after a long day, getting yourself focused for work, relieving chronic pain, or boosting yourself into a positive mood (like after a recent break-up).
