    I’m still trying to find a sweet spot with my food. I’m using it for suboxone withdrawals. So I dose regularly at this point. I can’t not eat, because I’m not healthy. I also have a physical job that’s I need energy for. I’m going to try tea. I’ve heard it works on a full stomach. I have to be able to do both. At this point in my therapy,I must eat 3 times per day. I also must dose 3-5 daily to remain functional and comfortable. I’ll update. Eating doesn’t destroy the effects. But it drastically reduces it.

    Hey Kaycee,

    Although kratom may work on an non empty stomach, I rather take it on an empty stomach for a couple of reasons.

    1. If I take it with food I tend to get bloated and burp a lot, as if I am full after eating a big meal.
    2. I have always found taking kratom without food to be a more intense effect than with food.
    3. I feel that for me it always hits better on an empty stomach. Same as pre workouts or anything that results in energy (but everyone is different)

    Hi, I spoke with Brad of Botanical Kratom about the issue of food and Kratom. I told him that I get the most effect when taking Kratom on an empty stomach. He told me it was a placebo effect and that, in fact, kratom works it’s magic in the digestive track and not the stomach. He said that eating with kratom is totally fine and will not affect it performance because of the above. He even said that eating fast food at the same time as taking kratom was very effective. I have serious crashing eating an hour or two after taking it on an empty stomach. He told me to take it with food. What are your thoughts about this since you are affiliated with Botanical Kratom and may know Brad. Could you add anything to the conversation?

    Hey Rich,

    I hear you on that one for sure man, I too hit the gym, however I do not eat as much as I should due to time (excuse I know!)

    Try taking your kratom about 1 hour after eating and see the effect. I personally wait 45 – 60 minutes after a meal to take my kratom, however as you mentioned, the effects are not as pronounced. I do still get a decent effect that helps me accomplish the task that I am using kratom for.

    I have found that kratom really only helps me, as I take it for chronic pain, on a fairly empty stomach. Problem is being so involved in body building, I eat every 3 hours at least, so it is not nearly as effective for me.

    You speak of Tim Hortens, does that mean you are in Canada like myself ?. I am just beginning on my Kratom journey, it sounds like you have a lot of useful information . I am hoping you can help me.
