Either through tolerance, getting poor quality kratom, or just wanting a better experience, a lot of people out there are wondering how to make kratom stronger. The great news is that kratom potentiators do exist to achieve the following:
- Get the effects of kratom working more quickly
- Allow kratom to work in the body for longer
- Create a more intense experience for you
Kratom potentiators are also mostly household items that are readily available in large supermarkets, or online marketplaces like Amazon and eBay very cheaply.
So let’s take a quick look at how to make kratom stronger using six different methods, several of which can be combined to make the ultimate kratom potentiating stack.
How Do Potentiators Make Kratom Stronger?
A potentiating substance is something that enhances another substance through interaction with it, or by blocking something that interacts with it.
Mostly, in the body, a potentiator works by blocking enzymes that then allow an improvement in the absorption and use of the substance you are targeting, in this instance kratom.
As well as potentiating the kratom using the six methods I’m now going to tell you about, there are also a few things you can do outside of potentiating the kratom to make sure you have the best experience:
- Always make sure you take kratom on an empty stomach, don’t eat for at least two hours before you take kratom.
- Make sure you experiment with kratom to understand the dose you need. You don’t want to be topping up so you are wasting time and potency, and you don’t want to be building up a tolerance to kratom by taking a higher dose than you need.
- This is the most obvious and critical thing, but a lot of people don’t realize it. The kratom you buy has to be high in alkaloid content because otherwise, you will never get the best experience. The benchmark is around 5 g. If you’re not getting a low full-spectrum experience from 4-5 g of kratom, then it’s rubbish quality kratom. The bottom line is you need to buy quality kratom from a trusted vendor.
The Best 6 Kratom Potentiators Revealed
So let’s take a look at the top six best kratom potentiators out there, any of which will make kratom stronger. You can also stack a few of these methods together to make it even more certain that you will potentiate the kratom you are taking.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is a common kratom potentiator. That’s because it’s acidic, and it has a lot in common with method two outlined next.
Basically, the acidity in apple cider vinegar can potentiate the kratom. The acidity has the ability to enhance absorption, and due to this gives you a more unified experience because the full dose is hitting you quicker, and in one go.
Unfortunately, apple cider vinegar isn’t that palatable. You literally mix it with the kratom powder to create a thick liquid. I tried it once, and it’s disgusting, but it is definitely a way to make kratom stronger.
Grapefruit Or Other Fruit Juice
So moving on from method one, of using the base of acidity to potentiate kratom, we will talk about fruit juices.
Now nearly all fruit juices are acidic, and the most potent ones are lemon juice, lime juice, things like that. But again, they are pretty unpalatable. Next on the list of high acidity fruit juices though is grapefruit juice. It’s palatable and acidic. So mixing your kratom powder with grapefruit juice is a great way of potentiating the kratom.
Better than that, the grapefruit juice also disguises the powdery and bitter nature of kratom. So all round, using kratom with grapefruit juice will give you a better experience.
Freeze The Kratom
The third best way to potentiate kratom is to freeze it. You know how when you freeze fruit and vegetables, they break down to get a different consistency, well it’s the same with kratom. Doing this apparently helps to break open the kratom to allow the active ingredients, the alkaloids, to be more readily available. This means you’ll get a quicker and better hit of kratom.
But the thing is, you can’t just freeze the powder. It needs moisture to crack open the kratom. Water is no good for this because you are diluting the potential of the kratom. That’s why I’d recommend you mix it with your grapefruit juice and then freeze it. You are getting the acidic potentiator, and also the kratom is being broken down so it’s in a better format for digestion.
Another great way of potentiating kratom is chamomile tea. I’ll be honest, I haven’t found how this works, but it definitely does. I suspect the basis of is the two substances complement each other. Chamomile tea is a mild relaxant, which means it has something in common with kratom, so it will enhance those traits.
Plus, chamomile tea helps to soothe the stomach. As kratom can unsettle the stomach, this allows for a better experience and potentially better absorption.
Turmeric & Cayenne Pepper
Turmeric and/or cayenne pepper are also great kratom potentiators. Just make sure that you mix either/both of them with a bit of black pepper. This is because black pepper contains Bioperine, which is one of the most renowned ways of aiding the absorption of multiple supplements, especially turmeric.
You could mix turmeric and cayenne pepper with water and then add your kratom. Or you could go one step further and add fruit juice. Let’s be honest, you could create the ultimate kratom potentiating stack here. Mix the kratom with grapefruit juice, mix in turmeric, cayenne pepper, and black pepper, and then freeze it.
When you consume it, you will be drinking a deliciously cold slush with a potency that is rarely matched.
Valerian Root is known as “natures Valium”. It’s been used for millennia to promote sleep, calmness, and improve a sense of wellbeing. So you can already see how it will help to potentiate kratom, in the same way as chamomile tea.
But it is more potent than chamomile tea. Just be careful about taking it with a high dose of kratom because you are potentiating those effects that kratom produces, especially red kratom. You could put yourself in a position where the combination creates an overwhelming tranquility and pain relief that leaves you unable to function, but it is a brilliant kratom potentiator.
