Is Snorting Kratom a Good Idea?

Snorting kratom is not advised because it can cause some damage to your mucous membranes. Although it is possible, there are a variety of other ways you can consume kratom that is more suitable. Make sure you always consult with your general practitioner before buying any new dietary ingredient.

Can You Snort Kratom

Smoking or snorting kratom can shorten the time needed for the drug to reach the user’s bloodstream, which may be appealing to some. If you are not familiar with kratom dosage, however, these methods may be dangerous to your health. Taking kratom orally may cause it to take a few hours before feeling any type of wellbeing. However, the wellness will last longer when taken orally rather than snorting kratom. 

Kratom originates from tree leaves and contains high quantities of plant fiber and cellulose. Because kratom naturally contains these materials that are not intoxicating, users would need to snort a large amount of kratom for overall wellness. It’s much more manageable to take in these large quantities of kratom via capsule or tea.

Another reason snorting kratom is not a popular choice is that kratom contains alkaloids, which are not readily absorbed into a person’s bloodstream from the mucous membranes (i.e. the nose). As a result, snorting kratom is unlikely to yield the results you may be seeking. Furthermore, users who choose to snort kratom may experience nosebleeds and other respiratory issues.

Therefore, though you may be interested in snorting kratom, it is a better idea to choose one of the more popular consumption methods.

Kratom Consumption

Kratom belongs to the same family as the coffee tree, which is the Rubiaceae family. Kratom is a versatile substance and can be taken in many different ways. Most commonly, it is taken by consuming capsules, putting kratom powder into tea, or by putting the powder directly into your mouth and drinking some water with it. Users also may choose to smoke kratom, but this method of intake is less common. Because of this versatility, some users may be interested in snorting kratom, but doing so may not be advisable.

Traditional Consumption Methods:

  • Chewing Leaves – In the native regions like Thailand, Myanmar or Papua New Guinea, the kratom leaves are chewed after the central vein has been removed.
  • Tea – The dried kratom leaves can be consumed as a tea. You can also prepare an extract which is similar to a resin after evaporating the entire water from the tea. This can be used again later. Pellets of the extract can be used for making tea. Kratom tea is also mixed with black tea or other herbal tea to mask the taste. Most people also prefer mixing honey or sugar to add a sweet taste.
  • PowderKratom powder can be mixed with some other liquids like water, milk, kefir or fruit juice for easy consumption. You can also mix it in chocolate milk as it helps in getting rid of the bitter and harsh taste of kratom. 
    • Paste – A paste can be made from the powder to make it easier for you to swallow. This would be done by mixing the powder with applesauce or yogurt.
    • Capsules – For convenience, the kratom powder can be packed into capsules for you to consume

Even with a traditional consumption method, you will need to check with your general practitioner before buying any new dietary ingredient.
