Effects of Kratom

Kratom is a rather unique plant in that a low to moderate dose will usually (but not always) be stimulating, while a high dose is almost always quite sedating. This is apparently because the active alkaloids have both stimulant and sedative effects. 

At a low dose (1-5 g) of Kratom, stimulant-like effects predominate. These are felt within 10 minutes and last for 60 to 90 minutes. They include

  • Increased energy and alertness. 
  • Decreased appetite. 
  • Increased sociability. 
  • Heightened libido. 


Moderate to high doses (5-15 g)
of Kratom have primarily opioid-like effects that last for several hours. Those can be

  • Analgesia (pain reduction).
  • Drowsiness.
  • Calm, dreamlike mental state.
  • Cough suppression.
  • Reduction in symptoms of opioid withdrawal.
