Kratom is a plant-based supplement which has become popular in recent years. It is known for its anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and relaxing effects. Many people are now turning to it as a natural pain relief or stress reduction remedy. If you’re looking to take advantage of these benefits without having to buy kratom from HGL then making your own kratom tea, capsules, and tinctures can be a great option. Here’s how you can make your own:

Making Kratom Tea

This is the most common way of taking kratom powder or leaves. The process is simple – all you need are some crushed kratom leaves or powder, water, and a pot. First pour the desired amount of water into the pot and bring it to a boil on medium heat. Once boiling add your chosen dose of crushed kratom leaves/powder and stir until completely dissolved in the liquid. Then reduce the heat and let it simmer for around 10 minutes before straining off the liquid with a fine mesh sieve or cheesecloth into another container. Let cool before drinking!

Making Kratom Capsules

One of the easiest ways to take your daily dose of kratom is by using capsules, as they provide an accurate dose every time without any mess or fuss. To make them at home, all you need is gel capsules (available online) and ground kratom powder/leaves – preferably from HGL. Fill each capsule with an appropriate dosage (see our dosage guide), taking care not to overfill as they won’t seal properly when closed!

Making kratom tinctures

Tinctures are one of the oldest methods used in traditional medicine to extract active compounds from plants such as kratom alkaloids (the active ingredient responsible for its effects). This method requires more effort than making tea, but offers longer-lasting results due to its higher concentration levels than teas or capsules made at home. To make your own tincture, grind some dried kratom leaves/powder to a fine consistency before adding this to a jar filled with vodka, rum or glycerine base liquid until only ½ inch of space remains at the top. Seal tightly with a lid and store in a dark place such as a cupboard shelf for 4 weeks, shaking occasionally during this time, before finally straining off all the solids, leaving only the clear liquid, which can be stored in an airtight container ready for use whenever needed!


Making your own homemade version of kratom tea, capsules and tinctures can be both a fun and rewarding experience if done correctly following the steps outlined above. it also allows the user the freedom to customise dosages according to personal needs while saving money on buying pre-made versions from suppliers such as HGL. Be sure to do your research beforehand to ensure safety and avoid potential risks associated with misuse and improper preparations!
