Kratom Tea vs. Kratom Powder – Which Is Stronger!

Kratom, a herbal plant that exhibits innumerable medicinal properties, is originally grown in Southeast Asian countries such as Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia. But due to its increasing popularity, kratom is widely available in the markets of western countries, especially the USA and Canada. To overcome the bad taste of Kratom, people consume it in various forms.

Kratom lovers consume it in the forms of:

1. Tincture
2. Capsules
3. Tablets
4. Powder
5. Kratom extract injections
6. Brew Kratom Leaves – Tea

With Kratom gaining its popularity and being considerably famous, there are quite a lot of people who have opinions about different forms of Kratom, especially the form of tea compared to powder. Most often you find people arguing over the most preferred way of consuming kratom. In such a scenario, there will always be a tug of war between people who would suggest kratom tea and others advising to go for kratom powder.

In this article, we would be comparing Kratom Tea with Powder to know which one is stronger.

Do You Think Kratom Powder Is Stronger?

Kratom powder is considered as the ancient and old method of consuming Kratom. The people of its origin used to crush the dry Kratom leaves and then consume it. Sometimes, they even chew the raw leaves to get the maximum benefits from the juice that is released while chewing. Most of the native people and modern-day kratom users believe that Kratom in its powdered form is more of a natural method that provides more benefits than Kratom tea. This is because the powdered form has small granules that increase surface area for absorption and provides effects efficiently. They claim that the powder is also an efficient method of checking the quality of Kratom as you can feel its actual texture properly leading to better recognition of Kratom leaves and its types.

Do You Think Kratom Tea Is Stronger?

Kratom tea is made by brewing the kratom leaves in hot water. If you are regular kratom users, then you can consume kratom tea 2 to 4 times a day depending on physical tolerance and behavior. You can experiment with different kratom strains. Generally, it was found that the US population used to consume coffee to keep themselves active and energetic throughout the day. But nowadays they have turned to kratom tea. Kratom provides similar stimulating effects as coffee as well as mental alertness, and the best part is that it does not contain caffeine. So Kratom tea might be the next big thing or the alternative to coffee. Consuming kratom in the form of tea shows a very mild sedative effect and because of this people prefer to consume it in the daytime. This shows that kratom tea is not as strong as kratom powder. It’s easy to go and easy to consume anywhere at any time.

Why Kratom Tea Is Not Stronger Than Kratom Powder?

Kratom tea is not stronger than directly consuming kratom powder, also known as the toss and wash method.

Kratom Tea Destroys Alkaloids

Kratom contains a vast number of alkaloids. The more important ones, 7-hydroxy mitragynine, and mitragynine are the main alkaloids responsible for producing kratom’s many effects.

7-hydroxy mitragynine is known to be more potent than its counterpart and plays a key role in pain relief. Unfortunately, 7-hydroxy mitragynine and mitragynine are not heat resistant.

Boiling water, which occurs at 212 degrees Fahrenheit, destroys most of the alkaloids and thus reduces the potency of kratom.

When you use the toss and wash method nothing is heated so you can expect to experience the full effect of kratom powder. The alkaloids are extracted and absorbed in your stomach. Thus, kratom powder is superior to kratom tea.


Kratom is a herb that is consumed by millions of people to get pain relief, reduce anxiety and stress. Moreover, it also boosts the energy level of the body and keeps you active throughout the day. It is known that Kratom, in some way or the other, links to healing and curing as it contains restorative and therapeutic properties. But while consuming kratom always make sure that you are taking the dosage as per the guidelines. For beginners, it is advised to start with a small dose of 0.5 gram, observe the effects, and then increase the intake.
