What is Kratom? (Everything you need to know)
May 1, 2020
Kratom is extracted from a fifteen-meter-high tree that grows in the rainforest: the Mitragyna specie. It would seem that the leaf of this tree contains more than twenty-five substances in different proportions.
Kratom is best known in Southeast Asia, where it is used as a mild stimulant in many countries. At a low dose, the effect can be compared to that of coffee, coca leaves, or nicotine, but this varies greatly depending on the variety of kratom.
The strange effects of kratom
The kratom tree is extremely sensitive to where it grows. That is why it is very difficult to grow kratom yourself. Depending on where it grows, kratom will have slightly different effects. Compare this to the taste of wine. Thin mouths will immediately notice the difference. The effects of kratom are also somewhat subjective, although most people say they actually feel a difference in effects. A lower dosage of the Thai variant, for example, puts you in a good mood and gives you energy. Maeng Da adds her little grain of salt promising you a euphoric feeling. Bali and Malaysia are the variants you need if you want to relax, even with a lower dose.
To resume the comparison with wine: we get drunk regardless of the variety, as long as we consume enough. It’s about the same with kratom. At a higher dose, kratom knocks you out, and your body is like slightly anesthetized, whether you’re taking Thai, Balinese or Malaysian kratom.
The effect of Kratom is felt about five to 10 minutes after taking. This effect may persist for a few hours. The effect is relaxing and stimulating at the same time, which is a special experience: you can feel relaxed, relaxed, and dreamy, and just as well want to be active or go to work. According to sources, Kratom in low doses has a stimulating effect, and in higher doses it is relaxing. Euphoric feelings and being drowsy are the main effects. A high dose of Kratom can eventually cause a long sleep.
Kratom Maeng Da
Do you want to try a kind of kratom different from all the others? It is not known from which country the leaves of Kratom Maeng Da come from. It is known, however, that the latter is manually selected according to their amount of active substance. They contain many alkaloids such as mitragynine and 7-hydroxy mitragynine, as well as other varieties. It is also suggested on the Web that kratom Maeng Da has been genetically modified to acquire this power, but no evidence has been found to date. Anyway: if you want to experience the power of kratom powder, buy Maeng Da Kratom.
Use and dosage of kratom capsules
Kratom capsules are perfectly suitable if you do not care about the characteristic taste of kratom. One capsule contains half a gram of kratom, which is enough to allow you to feel the first effects. Do you want some more? So, we advise you to take no more than 5 capsules to relax.
Take them with a glass of water or fruit juice and wait 5-10 minutes before the effects begin.
About the dosage, we want to clarify the following: Kratom is slightly addictive at high doses. If you use it for several days or even several weeks in a row, you will be constipated, have discoloration of the face, feel a loss of appetite, and eventually lose weight. You will also experience withdrawal symptoms when you have had enough: irritability, runny nose, and diarrhea make withdrawal uncomfortable for you and your surroundings. So be careful not to top abuse kratom.
