KRATOM DEFINITION

Native to the Southeast Asia, kratom (Mitragyna Speciosa) is a powerful medicinal plant used by thousands throughout the world.   The use of kratom goes back several thousand years, but it was first formally documented growing abundantly in Thailand.  The medicinal potentials of this plant are vast, some of the most prominent include: pain relief, opiate addiction treatment, mood lifting, energy and immune system stimulation.  In addition to this large range of medicinal applications, this plant also has other positive secondary properties such as high-antitoxins and vitamin content, which has made it worthwhile for general health purposes as well.   Stress relief is a big reason why Kratom is so popular. 

KRATOM EFFECTIVENESS

Consumers who use kratom anecdotally report lessened anxiety and stress, lessened fatigue, pain relief, sharpened focus, relief of withdrawal symptoms. Beside pain, other anecdotal uses include as an anti-inflammatory, antipyretic (to lower fever), antitussive (cough suppressant), antihypertensive (to lower blood pressure), as a local anesthetic, to lower blood sugar, and as an antidiarrheal.  It has also been promoted to enhance sexual function.   However  I would advise people who suffer from mental disorders not to substitute medical treatment with kratom or mix it with other drugs.  Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers must not use kratom.

HOW TO USE KRATOM

The leaves of kratom are consumed either by chewing, or by drying and smoking, putting into capsules, tablets or extract, or by boiling into a tea. It is marketed in a variety of forms on the internet, which include raw leaf, powder, gum, dried in capsules, pressed into tablets, and as a concentrated extract.  

TYPES OF STRAINS

There is a wide variety of strains  offering a wide range of results. There are a number of reasons why some strains of kratom perform far better than others for particular desires. The performance of a specific vein depends upon how the body reacts to that vein color, the quantity of dose you are taking and specific various other aspects. Some Kratom strains offer beneficial outcomes for some people, as well as others do not see the very same results when utilizing the very same vein color. You may need to explore various colors to find the one that is best for you.  Strains used for stress relief and alleviation of anxiety include:

Borneo

Borneo is sedative, bringing calmness, leisure, and also drowsiness, making it ideal for people who experience difficulty sleeping, stress and anxiety.  A small dosage of only 2 grams of Borneo kratom can generate efficient outcomes.  Borneo leaves have an abundance of alkaloids that makes them the best among Kratom strains worldwide. Borneo’s discomfort soothing abilities make it an optimal option for pain monitoring. It works well for light, moderate, along with persistent pain. Borneo is the most heavily marketed Kratom strains that really has lots of effects. Borneo is available in three colours. the Red Borneo (most preferred of all 3) which is extremely effective for optimum discomfort control, White Borneo (less preferred than red Borneo), but has its own impressive qualities (excitement and analgesia), and Green Borneo (one of the most favored Kratom supplements ever) with the extreme anti-anxiety and discomfort soothing effects. 

Indo

This variety of kratom is super environmentally friendly, and rapidly getting a large appeal due to its capacity to create two different effects, excitement and relaxation, at the same time. The origin of a strain of kratom and the type and amount of alkaloid inherent in the plant establish its efficiency.  Some effects of Indo kratom are pain relief, mood elevation, leisure, as well as sedation.  But it is less sedative than Borneo strain.  Consumers who use Indo kratom  for anxiety have actually reported having the longest lasting result. Similar to Borneo and also Bali strains, Indo kratom is most commonly used for anxiety alleviation.  This strain is made from super-sized kratom plant leaves. These fallen leaves have much higher level of alkaloids compared to average kratom leaves, hence this strain is more powerful than the others.  In addition, the physical and psychological impacts created by this kratom strain are much more extensive. These aspects make this kratom the best option for those seeking to alleviate anxiety.

Bali

This type of kratom is in high demand because of both its sedative power and relief of anxiety.  Bali strains cost much less than the Borneo and Indo, making them an affordable alternative.  A high dose may lead to side effects, like nausea or vomiting.  Proper dosage is advised.  It is recommended that you only buy product in sealed packages with dosage indicated on the package.

Red Vein

Red kratom is also sedative, and relieves pain and anxiety.   But, like with any type of strain, it is important to buy the right product from a trusted supplier.  Some suppliers tend to exaggerate the effects of kratom, and there are a lot of fake kratom in the market.  Hence you have to do a research before buying the kratom, to ensure that you get a good value for your money.

WHERE TO BUY KRATOM

Kratom strains are marketed on the internet, and also available in most of the tobacco shops.  It is recommended that you buy from your nearest and trusted tobacco shop, or order from internet after you have done a thorough research.  Freshness is important for kratom, choosing the right supplier results in greater satisfaction with the product.  You must ensure that you buy kratom in sealed package with a recommended dosage written on the package.

DOSAGE

Use of proper dosage is crucial.  The effects are unique in that stimulation occurs at low doses and opioid-like depressant and euphoric effects occur at higher doses. Stimulant effects manifest as increased alertness, boosted physical energy, talkativeness, and a more social behavior. At higher doses, the opioid and CNS (Central Nervous System) depressant effects predominate, but effects can be variable and unpredictable.  Kratom can bring side effects, particularly to brand-new customers.  It is recommended that you begin with smaller dose and progressively raise it.  Consumption of high dose  by a beginner may lead to unwanted results such as:  tongue tingling. queasiness as well as vomiting; dry mouth, regular peeing, trouble breathing, irregularity, hostility, hallucinations as well as delusions.  The same side effects appear when you take a significantly high dose of Borneo, regardless of your previous use of Kratom.

  1. What a very interesting article.  I suffer of depression, have done so for many years.  I take anti-depressants to manage this.  I don’t think that I will stop taking them, certainly not in the near future, but I am very intrigued by the Red Vein.  

    I think it is great that it relieves anxiety as well as pain.  I suffer of arthritis in my hip, so I would like to know if Red Vein would be able to relieve the pain of that?

    i will certainly be back for more tips.

    Thanks again

    1. Thank you for stopping by.  I highly appreciate your time and comments.  And YES Red Vein will lessen your pain.

      All the best.

  2. Hello!
    What interesting properties does Kratom have as a medicinal plant. I am a person who, due to the type of activity, tends to stress me quite frequently. 

    As you explain Kratom consumers report decreased anxiety and stress. I will consult my trusted doctor for dose and other important consumption recommendations. 

    Thank you very much!

    1. Thank you Claudio for stopping by.  I highly appreciate your time and comments.  Dosage is very important, so it’s a good idea to follow your doctor’s recommendations.

      All the best.

  3. It sounds like this product has some good medicinal benefits but, I’ve done a little more research and it seems that there are some not so great side effects with this product as well.  Some of them are: drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, seizures, liver toxicity and excessively rapid heartbeat and has been linked to both narcotic and stimulant-like effects.

    Health Canada has also suggested that Kratom exhibits the potential for abuse and dependence.

    I have not used this product but \i would suggest that anyone interested in trying it should do some further research.  It is legal, at this time in Canada, but there is still a fair amount of debate over whether it should stay that way.

    Just saying, buyer be aware,

    1. Due to high demand for kratom, the number  of suppliers selling fake products, using unethical ways of maximizing profits, is unfortunately increasing.  The benefits depends on where you buy your kratom products.  The listed side effects are due to overdose and can be eliminated by reducing the dose.
