How To Potentiate Your Kratom

Ever thought about how to potentiate your kratom? You’re not alone my friend.

It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been using kratom powder, making kratom more potent is something we all want to do. That leads to the question, “how can I make my kratom more potent?” Kratom users believe so.

The kratom community is always experimenting with new kratom methods. So we get a ton of great new ideas for creating potent kratom. Kratom has a lot of benefits, but like most things we take over a long duration of time, the effects are usually not the same as when we first started using something. For some users, kratom will soon follow suit.

After you use kratom for some time, many users say the kratom doesn’t work as well. We have a lot of customers that say this, it’s something the kratom community is often talking about. One of the tips recommended is mixing your kratom strains up. I’ve talked about this in other guides.

Another way kratom users are battling this is by using potentiators, which we’ll be discussing today in this specific article.

Below, I’m going to share what I know has been said to enhance your kratom experiences and things I’ve tried using myself.


There’s a number of known kratom powder potentiators, some of these you’ve likely heard of, perhaps a few of them will be new to you.


One of the most popular kratom powder potentiators is called turmeric. In fact, there’s a lot of kratom users that buy turmeric to enhance their kratom high. If you want your kratom experience to last longer and be more enhanced, try using turmeric with it.


Grapefruit is a great kratom potentiator as it has the ability to break down the kratom you dose. You can take both grapefruit or grapefruit juice, they both work! It may benefit you because it allows the kratom to stay active longer than usual.


This one is not for the faint of heart. Some kratom users recommend it. You don’t want to take the akuamma seeds whole, they need to be crushed up. Some people say it may enhance their kratom, others stay away from it.


Magnesium is the type of potentiator that can work with you or against you. Some kratom users swear by it, others say magnesium has a reverse effect. I’d be careful trying this one. It may be worth trying once though.


This is an interesting spice that shares similar alkaloids to the kratom leaf. Because of that, it may certainly enhance your kratom experience in a great way.


There’s a lot of mixed opinions about using cayenne pepper with your kratom powder. I’ve tried this myself, I actually love spicy, fire food. While it’s not long lasting, it may certainly enhance the effects of your kratom.


If you’ve read any of our blogs, you may have read about one of my favorite kratom dosing methods, which is red kratom with Mountain Dew. Not only does this specific pop cover the kratom taste well, it also enhances my kratom experience.

I also know some kratom users will take caffeine pills with their kratom. I haven’t tried this myself, but it may be something you want to consider.


Coffee is another potential potentiator you may want to try. This is another reason some kratom users may enjoy using kratom tea, kratom coffee, ect. Not only is this a great way to take your kratom, you can add coffee to your kratom as it may enhance the euphoria experience you may want to feel.


Both chamomile and green tea are favorites for enhancing kratom.

Chamomile is an ancient herb that have a ton of great health benefits. The two types of chamomile that has therapeutic effects are called Roman chamomile and German chamomile. If you’re allergic to pollen, you may not want to try this one.

Green tea is also healthy for you.

Here’s some tips for making kratom tea.


For relaxation, sedation, this type of kratom experience, you may want to consider valerian root. Valerian root is a fragrant plant that’s commonly used to aid insomnia and anxiety because of its relaxing properties. For those of you that take kratom for its relaxing effects, valerian root can make for a good potentiator.


Watercress is a well known kratom potentiator. Watercress is a dark, leafy green that is often grown in spring water. It’s also healthy for you, some people calling it the next big super food. When combined with kratom, it may really enhance your kratom euphoria.


In closing, I want to talk about your kratom dose. Personally, I use my regular kratom dose when I feel it’s time to add a potentiator. It’s all about the experience, so I’m leaving your dose up to you. Just be careful, be responsible.

You’re obviously looking for more kick, so experiment with these and see what works best.

Lastly, how do you use potentiators with kratom?

This is more about personal experience than anything.

Even so, I wanted to leave you with a few pointers on what I know personally works.

Take your kratom first. Give it a 30-60 minutes before you try the potentiator of your choice.

Again, you can experiment with these, get creative! Enjoy it!

For the best results, I’d recommend waiting at least 30 minutes, up to an hour.
