Mainly known for its energetic and relaxing effects, the leaf of Kratom produces a spectrum of opioid effects. These effects range from stimulation to sedation depending on the dosage consumed. Its combination with coffee has been gaining popularity lately to amplify effects of stimulation.

Kratom with Coffee

Coffee is an essential day starter for most people because of its energizing effects. It is a morning ritual that people globally cannot break free from. People are reliant on coffee to kickstart their day by causing drowsiness and morning sickness to subside. Coffee and kratom are both stimulants with similar effects. This has led some to replace coffee with Kratom, while others have just devised the idea to combine both for a more energized consumption. When both are combined, people gain a true synergism to benefit from. But what are these combination effects precisely? They are long lasting boost of energy, relaxive feelings and a soothing state of mind. These are few of the many effects we’re looking to experience every morning. The synergy between coffee and kratom stimulates the central nervous system. Coffee and kratom are known as psychomotor stimulants because of their trigger functions. They cause excitement and euphoria in people.

How Does it Work?

The mixture of these two stimulants potentiates the motor activity and reduces fatigue. The main component in coffee responsible for this effect is methylxanthine, which is commonly known as caffeine. It is the most utilized stimulant globally. As a result of stimulating cortex and other parts of the brain, caffeine increases mental sharpness and reduces fatigue.

Brewing Coffee with Kratom

This section covers the techniques used to brew coffee and kratom together. People can mix kratom with coffee after making their coffee, or brew them both together. When using kratom with coffee, ensure using a higher amount of sugar and milk than usual to eliminate the bitter taste. If using a powder form of kratom, then brew it with coffee directly. Make sure kratom is grounded well to easily mix with coffee beans. People can also use kratom leaves to make tea first and later mix it with coffee. Boil the leaves with some water for about 15 to 20 minutes to make kratom tea. Avoid overheating kratom, or the water that is to be be added to it. Kratom is easily denatured by heating it above a certain temperature. The alkaloid present in kratom leaves, which is one of the stimulating qualities of the leaves, becomes damaged when exposed to high temperatures. Best way to minimize this risk is by boiling water separately. After allowing the water to cool down, in about 2 minutes, add kratom leaves with coffee.

Kratom and Coffee Doses

Mix about 1 – 2 grams of kratom with coffee as a small dose. If more tolerant, a person can mix about 2 – 4 grams as a medium dose. But he must be careful of the adverse effects of a high dosage. These dosages can be combined with .5 to 1.5 grams of coffee. Those who consume higher doses of coffee can reduce a little amount of kratom and increase the coffee dosage instead.

Although kratom has not been associated with any serious or disastrous condition, abusing it does result in dangerous side effects.

Trying different strains of kratom can help prevent the tolerance build up.
