Although kratom is a humble herb, it can get notorious among some users. They may feel stomach discomfort or nausea after taking this herb. Do not panic, if this happens to you. First, make sure your kratom is pure and fresh.

Always buy from authentic vendors of kratom in Florida. They are known for delivering pure and fresh quality herb. Taking stale kratom can make you sick.

What causes Kratom nausea?

Kratom nausea does not happen to everybody who takes kratom. It happens only to a few users. According to experts, this happens when the herb works on the opioid receptors of your brain. This produces the sensation of nausea.

Nausea may further lead to vomiting.

Experts still don’t know why nausea happens to only some people, whereas kratom works on the same receptors for everybody.

What to do?

Nausea usually happens when people take kratom powder or capsules on an empty stomach. This does not suit everybody. So, if you felt nausea after taking the herb the first thing in the morning, stop doing so. Take a light snack first and then use the herb.

Or you may not take kratom in the morning at all. If you wish to use kratom for energy, take it in the afternoon, an hour after your lunch.

Some people may experience nausea and constipation after taking the powder. Please remember that powder of kratom is insoluble in water. When you toss and wash, the powder quickly sits in your stomach, instead of getting mixed in water. This can make you feel nausea or constipated.

Again, constipation and nausea do not happen to every user who uses powder.


Nausea is also one of the side effects of kratom when you overdose on it. So, check your dose. Did you take more than required? Did you take the herb many times a day?

Taking kratom several times a day is not needed, remark experts. Kratom is a powerful herb. Taking products like White Maeng Da Kratom Powder in the morning is enough to make you go through the day beautifully. And if at all you must take it a second time, you can do so in the afternoon.

You need not take the herb every few hours. This can lead to an overdose.

Fresh herb

If you took spoilt kratom by mistake, it can make you vomit or cause indigestion. Check the expiry date on the packaging. Ensure the powder is fresh. It should be completely dry, not soggy or lumpy. Check for molds. Also, check color and texture.

If you feel something is not right, please do not use such powder. Search for “kratom shop near me” to find licensed vendors who sell only pure and fresh kratom.

It can also happen that you bought fresh kratom, but it got spoilt due to improper storage. Or maybe you didn’t use it for too long (can this happen!!). Experts are of the view that, being a botanical, you must consume the powder within 3 months of opening the packet.
