How Long Does Kratom Stay In Your System?

One of the more common questions we’re asked about kratom is “how long does kratom stay in your system?” For those of you asking that very question, I’m going to assume you have an employer that drug test you. Then again, you may be a parent and you want to test your child for kratom. Either way, we’re going to answer your question right down the middle. (Just in case you were wondering)

How Long Does Kratom Stay In Your System?

It all depends on how much the person uses kratom.

If you’ve used kratom for the first time ever or just once in the last month, kratom can run through your system fairly quick. On the other hand, if you’re taking kratom multiple times every day, it’s going to take longer for you to get kratom out of your system.

The amount of time kratom takes to leave your system depends on your biological makeup too. If you have a fast metabolism, kratom may be out of your system a lot faster versus someone that has a slow metabolism. All of these different factors can play a role in how long kratom stays in your system.

Factors That Can Determine How Long Kratom Is In Your System

  • Age
  • Weight
  • Genetics
  • Body Fat
  • Fluids/Food

Kratom Urine Test

Now, for a urine test, you’ll usually need at least 7 days in between from now and the last time you took kratom. If you drink a lot of water, you may be able to get the kratom out of your system in 5-6 days. Some drug test can pick up the alkaloids found in kratom. It’s possible trace amounts of kratom may be found after 7 days.

Kratom Blood Test

It’s possible to test for kratom using blood. They can also determine how much kratom you’re using by blood too. Kratom can be found in your blood and usually takes 3-5 days to leave your system on average.

Kratom Hair Test

To my knowledge, I don’t think kratom is tested via hair test.

How Long Does It Take To Feel The Effects Of Kratom?

As factors mentioned earlier, everyone is different and has different chemical makeups in their body. Kratom will effect you differently than the next person.

When you take your first dose of kratom, you can feel the effects in as little as 15 minutes. Overall, you should feel the effects within the first 30-45 minutes. If you’re taking a low dose of kratom (1-2 grams), you may not feel much effects, especially those of you taking your very first kratom dose.

You also have to consider the potency of the kratom you’re taking. Red vein kratom is often potent. Red kratom usually contains higher alkaloids than any other kratom strain. I don’t want to sound like a broke record but remember, everyone is different. This is why I recommend learning about the different kratom strains and the effects they provide.


Since all of us our different, it’s safe to assume that kratom can stay in your system from 3 days up to 14 days. I’ve never been tested for kratom.

If you’ve been tested for kratom or have tested someone for kratom, let us know. Share you knowledge!
