Kratom is relatively new to the western world but has been used throughout Asian culture for centuries. There is a lot of controversy over this herb, not only across the nation but all over the world. Because of this, legally no vendor, shop owner/worker, or manufacture can give you advice on how to take kratom. Only a doctor is allowed to guide you when it comes to dosing and the different ways to take kratom. However, we get the question all the time, “how long after eating should you take kratom?” To give you an answer we reached out to medical professionals, and here is what we have found out.
Kratom is closely related to the coffee plant. It originates from Southeast Asia, which includes Malaysia, Thailand, Borneo, and Indonesia. While kratom has been used in many ceremonial practices in the Asian culture, there are some areas where it is banned.
There are many different forms of kratom, which include powders, capsules, extracts, and teas. Kratom is not regulated by the FDA, so each state is left to decide how they want to handle kratom. Some states allow the use of kratom, while others have banned it statewide or in specific areas. If you would like to know if kratom is legal in your state, check out our legality page.
Kratom is known to provide overall wellness and balance, so why would this herb cause such controversy worldwide? The answer comes down to research and the lack of knowledge. Kratom has not been widely studied, and more research is needed to help properly educate the overall wellbeing that kratom offers. Because of this, kratom has not been approved by the FDA and the only individuals who can advise on kratom are medical professionals.
The Answer To Our Question
So, how long after eating should you take kratom? This advice can only be offered by a physician. Therefore, I reached out to a few local general practitioners to see what they had to say. I was kind of shocked by the response that I was given.
Out of 5 general practitioners that I reached out to, only 2 of them had actively heard of kratom and knew what this herb was. The other 3 physicians had practices in smaller communities, so they have not actively had any interaction with kratom nor did they have the knowledge to share about its use.
The two doctors who were aware of kratom did not have any patients who were actively taking the herb. Nor did they have any advice to offer us on how long after eating should you take kratom. So, the question remains. With little to no help from the 5 physicians that I reached out to, none of them offered an answer to our question.
I did find a lot of kratom forms with users who were offering up their experience with kratom and how long you should wait to take it after you eat. However, everyone is different and it is a dangerous practice to take advice from an individual on the internet. While it is a good thing to see what others have experienced, a medical professional is legally the only one who can give you the guidance that is needed.
If a doctor cannot offer the advice, then one thing is for sure, you cannot take the advice that is being widely spread across the internet as accurate. Each of the physicians did remark that they were now interested in studying more about kratom. So, my hope is, that these doctors will take the time to understand kratom and come back to us with an answer once they have done their research.
Consulting A Medical Physician
Mitragyna speciosa can offer you overall wellbeing and balance. However, more research is needed to be able to give us all the answers to our questions. I am confident that your physician would take the time to offer you the advice needed when it comes to kratom. Therefore, if you are thinking about taking kratom, the best thing you can do is consult with your medical provider. If they are not highly versed in kratom, they would be willing to put in the time researching the herb to properly guide you. They are the only ones who have the knowledge when it comes to offering medical advice on an herb.
