Medicinal herbs typically have an unpleasant taste, and kratom is no exception. The taste of kratom powder is often sharp and bitter. It also gives off an extremely earthy and herbal flavor.
Not everyone can put up with such an unpleasant taste and aroma. Of course, kratom users try to mask the horrible taste by infusing kratom powder in a smoothie, juice, or tea. Luckily, you can entirely avoid kratom’s terrible taste and chalkiness by using it in capsule form.
Capsules come in various sizes, which may be somewhat confusing when you’re trying to take the right dosage for your desired effects. One of the many customer questions on kratom capsule size is how much kratom fits into the 000-sized capsule.
After reading this post, you’ll have the answer to that question and how to encapsulate your own 000 capsules at home.
Generally, one gram of kratom powder can fit into a 000-sized capsule. Of course, you can stuff more kratom inside, but this is the average weight after filling a 000 capsule. The amount you can fit into this size of the capsule will depend on the density of the kratom powder. You can also use a tool to squash the powder into the capsule if you want to pack more powder.
Capsule sizes come labeled in numerical values, for example, 000. This may seem confusing, given the fact that higher numbers correspond to smaller capsules, not larger ones. For example, a #4 capsule is smaller than a #2 capsule.
You may also come across capsule sizes labeled with “0.” In this case, the more the number of 0s, the larger the capsule size. For instance, 0-sized capsules are smaller than 000-sized capsules, which are the largest. So, 000 capsules will obviously hold more kratom powder.
The first thing you need to do before filling your capsules is to figure out your daily kratom dosage. The typical dosage for most people is between 1 to 5 grams. Let’s say you want to consume 5 grams of kratom. Having bought a bottle of 000-sized kratom capsules, how do you calculate the proper dosage?
Each 000-sized capsule holds 1 gram of kratom powder. In this case, you will need to take five capsules sized 000 at 1 gram each to reach your standard daily dose of 5 grams.
Purchasing pre-filled capsules may be slightly costlier than making them on your own. Some of the premade capsules may contain fillers and binders that can contribute to poor disintegration rates and ineffective results. That’s why home encapsulation makes more sense.
Besides that, making capsules at home allows you to control the quality of kratom powder packed in your capsules. It’s also cheaper to make them at home, especially if you have to take them daily.
Amazon is an ideal place to get the tools you need to pack capsules at home.
Apart from masking the bitter taste of kratom, it’s also easier to dose the kratom with capsules compared to powder. Another advantage is that you’re better off making kratom capsules on your own than buying already encapsulated ones. This is because it’s cheaper and you can control the quality of kratom that goes into the capsules.
Once you have the kratom powder and empty capsules you want to use, you can start packing. A capsule-making machine can make your work easier and faster. Just make sure you match the size of the machine with your preferred capsule size.
