Once you get to know about kratom capsules, then a series of questions begin to pop up, how does it work? What is the best strain out there? What is the ideal dosage? One of the most common questions people ask is, how long before it takes effect.
Kratom capsules have tremendous health benefits. However, the rate at which the capsules take effect varies from one person to another. Generally, it takes about 10 to 20 minutes for it to start working. And, several factors such as age, general tolerance, weight, water intake, among others, determine the duration that it takes for one to feel the effects.
- The amount of food in your stomach
Kratom should always be taken on a full stomach. If you are full in the stomach, you can expect to take some time for it to take effect. When taken on an empty stomach, it takes a shorter time for the capsule to be absorbed. But it is not recommended because you will feel nausea and at times, stomach upset. Instead, if you want the medicine to kick off very fast, you can consider taking a small amount of food so that it can have a shorter time to take effect, which is bearable.
- The size of your body
For people who weigh 70 kilograms and above, they will experience more time for the kratom caps to take effect. That is about 30 to 45 minutes. And for those who weigh fewer kilos the time is less. That is 10 to 20 minutes. If you have a big body size, it is good to take the drug a bit earlier so that you can have the effects at the right time you need it. You will have to be patient about this, and allow the effects to kick off when necessary.
- Water intake
The amount of water you use to take the drug determines the time that it takes to feel the effects. When taking kratom caps, the amount of water you consume contributes to digestion and absorption. It is advisable to swallow the capsule with enough water. This will make the absorption and digestion faster. If you do not take water, you will feel dehydrated rather than enjoying the effects. But taking too much water is also not recommended.
