Can Kratom Cause Headaches?

For those of you that take kratom, you may have noticed you’re experiencing headaches more than normal. Obviously, something is causing the headaches but is it caused by kratom?

There’s no easy answer here, your headaches can be caused by a number of different things other than kratom.

If your headaches didn’t start until you began taking kratom, you have a higher probability that they are indeed caused by the kratom you’re taking.

A Few Tips To Help Your Kratom Headaches

Over the last few years, I’ve tried dozens of kratom strains. Because I’m always testing kratom quality, I’ve found that a few specific strains I was taking at the time were causing my headaches. The good news for me and hopefully some of you reading this, when I changed strains, I was no longer getting headaches.

My recommendations, pay attention to the specific strains you’re taking.

Secondly, the quality of your kratom matters. I know many people have complained about getting headaches from older, dry kratom. I can second that myself. The quality of the kratom drops as it ages, which is why we continuously keep fresh content in stock.

Third, be careful who you buy from. Some of the Reddit boards are calling our several kratom vendors for their “headache” kratom. Why I won’t mention any names myself, you can check out the thread here.

Wait, Is It Just The Kratom?

There’s a possibility that the kratom is causing your headaches with something else that’s wrong with you. Also, it may not be the kratom at all, but rather some type of other condition you have.

I am not a doctor. I am not giving you medical advice, that’s illegal. Nobody knows your body better than you, just use sound judgement if you’re trying to determine if kratom is causing headaches.

Do you drink a lot of caffeine? If so, caffeine is known for giving people headaches. If you’re use to drinking 6 pops a day and you only have 1 for the day, you may get a caffeine headache.

Are you in front of a computer all the time? Maybe your iPhone? This can also cause your headaches.

Are you stressed? Stress can cause headaches, heck it can kill you too. Alcohol can cause headaches, skipping meals can cause headaches, sugar can too also.

Again, there’s a number of different things that can cause headaches.

When Are You Getting Your Headaches?

Some kratom users report they get headaches when their dose is wearing off.

When I first started taking kratom, I use to experience them myself. However, I was taking some shitty kratom back then, plus my body wasn’t use to it. I can’t say either way, but I do recall it.

I’ve known personal friends have the same problems.

How You Can Avoid Most Headaches

It’s important to know what’s causing your headaches and that’s tough for me to do here.

While you may not be able to control every headache, knowing what causes headaches in the first place can help you avoid a majority of them.

You know your body, you know what you’re doing on a regular basis. If you’re skipping meals, stressed out, drinking too much soda, try avoiding these and seeing how it goes. You may find your headaches will go away.

If you get serious frequent headaches, see your doctor. Having regular headaches is not normal and it could be a symptom of something else.

You have to treat your body good, especially as you get older. Trust me.

Hopefully this will help you determine what to do next because regular headaches are no fun at all.
