Enhance Your Kratom Experience With These Potentiators

1 Comment

As beneficial as kratom is on its own, its effects can be increased with the use of potentiators — foods or herbs which can intensify the calming or energizing properties depending on the strain. And in addition to enhancing the effects of kratom — which can result in utilizing a smaller dosage — potentiators also offer the benefit of a more palatable kratom experience by introducing flavors that cut into the natural bitterness of Mitragyna Speciosa.


Many kratom users enjoy the flavor of grapefruit juice to cut the bitter flavor of kratom and although it’s useful in that respect, grapefruit is also an inhibitor that can result in higher amounts of kratom’s active ingredients in the bloodstream. But for grapefruit to work as an inhibitor, it should be ingested an hour or two before the kratom dosage is inhibited. And in that respect, the grapefruit peel is even more beneficial.


Starfruit, or carambola, is beneficial in the same way as grapefruit — as both a flavor enhancer and enzyme inhibitor. The difference is that starfruit is reported to work even better for both but it’s usually more expensive and harder to find.


Turmeric, the hip herbal cure-all, slows down the enzyme that breaks down kratom alkaloids. Although this doesn’t increase the effects, it does keep kratom in your system longer. One thing to keep in mind is that just like any effects you hope to obtain from turmeric, it’s important to ingest black pepper, which vastly increases the effects of curcumin, an active ingredient in turmeric.

Cayenne Pepper

Although nothing in cayenne pepper will directly result in greater absorption of kratom alkaloids, cayenne and similar foods increase the pH levels in the stomach which will increase absorption. Of course, cayenne pepper can be powerful stuff and just a pinch or two is recommended as an addition to a dosage of kratom powder.


Magnesium is an NMDA antagonist, which means it can reduce kratom tolerance when taken regularly. So when taken with magnesium supplements on a regular basis, less and less kratom is necessary. However, it’s important to note that magnesium can have a laxative effect, so dosages should be closely monitored.

  1. I would add Baking Soda and raw Coco powder not like Hershey hot chocolate but the raw bitter organic stuff, Coco plays off similar receptors in the brain so it strengthens the effects. I usually mix turmeric, coco powder, baking soda and a touch of Cyanne peper to my kratom then pour boiling water over it to make a paste then I fill the jar with OJ and shake.
