What is Kratom?

ABOUT KRATOM


Kratom, scientifically known as Mitragyna speciosa, is a towering evergreen tree indigenous to Southeast Asia. Its leaves possess opiate-like qualities, serving as stimulants, relaxants, pain relievers, euphoriants, and even substitutes for opioids, aiding in addiction treatment.

COLOUR VARIETIES: Red, White and Green


The primary medicinal compound, mitragynine, exists in various forms dictating the diverse effects of different Kratom strains. These strains, categorized by red, white, and green vein colours are based on the hue of the leaf veins, and each offer distinct benefits:

Red Vein: These strains excel in pain relief and aiding opioid withdrawal while also offering calming effects, serving as sleep aids, muscle relaxants and anti-anxiety agents.

White Vein: These strains are renowned for their stimulating and euphoric effects, commonly utilized to boost alertness, energy, and focus, making them popular choices for exercise and workouts.

Green Vein: These strains offer a middle ground between the effects of Red and White varieties, providing moderate pain relief alongside an energy lift. They are frequently employed to alleviate anxiety and depression, while fostering feelings of cheerfulness, sociability, and enhanced focus.

Kratom’s origin also influences its alkaloid ratios, with regions like Bali, Thailand, and Borneo yielding unique effects.

KRATOM DOSING


For those new to Kratom, a recommended starting dose is 2 grams (approximately one flat teaspoon). Effects typically manifest within 45-60 minutes. Subsequent doses can be increased by 1-2 grams every 45 minutes until the desired effect is achieved. The effects of a Kratom dose should last 5-7 hours.

1g-2g = mild dose 3g-5g = medium dose

6g-8g = high dose 9g-10g = very high dose!

Smaller doses, under 5 grams, make you feel more awake and alert, while also boosting your physical energy. Increasing the dosage results in sedative and pain-relieving effects, accompanied by dreamy sensations of euphoria and pleasure.

It’s best to use the minimum amount needed for the desired effect. Using Kratom regularly can result in withdrawal symptoms. If using to treat chronic pain or addiction, try to use only twice daily, morning and evening. Kratom alkaloids have a 24 hour half-life in your body – after 24 hours 50% will be flushed out. After 48 hours: 75%.
