Get a micro weighing scale and measure the amount of Kratom you want and buy the outer cap from any medical store and stuff the cap with the Kratom and you are done with the capsule. You can make how man ever capsules you want according to your requirement. There are even two types of caps that are available in the market, one is the normal gelatine cap which is made from the animal by-products and there is also the veggie caps which are totally made from the veggie stuff. If you are a vegetarian or a vegan you can go for the veggie caps but the only thing you have to consider is the cost of these capsules. If you are a person who never cares about the money you spend on medicine then you can very well get the veggie caps from the market.
THINGS TO REMEMBER
- Always consult a doctor near you before you start your medication because doctors can only guide you on which strain of Kratom will be suitable for you and can tell you the right dosage of Kratom you should be taking during the course of the medication.
- Always consume Kratom in empty stomach as if you help you have the fullest effect of the drug on you. The reason behind it is that when you are consuming the Kratom in the empty stomach, you reduce the dilution of the drug allowing it to mix freely with the flow of the blood thus resulting in showing great effects after consuming it.
- Try to find the right medication or drug store from the market, if you don’t find any reputed, authentic store go for the online market where you can find many authentic Kratom sellers.
