(The below article is an example of an ideal Kratom dosing schedule for minimizing tolerance. If you’re interested in learning more specifics about Kratom, check out our Ultimate Beginner’s Guide to Kratom.)

Let’s pretend that you have ten different strains of Kratom and they happen to be:

  1. Red Thai
  2. Red Malaysian
  3. Red Borneo
  4. Ultra-Premium Elite Elephant (white strain)
  5. White Vietnam
  6. White Hulu Kalimantan
  7. Green Borneo
  8. Green Sandai
  9. Yellow Sumatra
  10. Maeng Da

An ideal Kratom schedule for the week would be:


Monday – White Vietnam (Fast)
Tuesday – Red Thai (Fast)
Wednesday – Green Borneo (Moderate)
Thursday – Yellow Sumatra (Slow)
Friday  – White Hulu (Fast)
Saturday – Green Sandai (Moderate)
Sunday – Red Borneo (Slow)

Now this is only an example dosing schedule and it can vary based on your personal preferences. Some people opt to use only moderate and fast strains on weekdays if they have labor-intensive work to do. This will work IF you alternate strains each time you take a dose and don’t mix strains more than twice a week. (If you do mix strains, try to mix in a red strain.)

If you find yourself mostly mixing white and green strains, your tolerance may start to increase. To eliminate this problem and keep your overall tolerance low, make sure to set aside a brief period (about 3-5 days) to only use red strains or take a couple of days off all together as we’ve mentioned previously.
