Kratom 101: Everything You Need to Know About Kratom

Kratom is produced from the dried leaves of Mitragyna speciosa.  Mitragyna speciosa is an evergreen tree which is part of the coffee family. In Southeast Asia where it is mainstream and culturally abundant, Kratom is often used by chewing the leaves of Mitragyna speciosa or making a tea with them. In Thailand, Kratom is known as krathom, from which its name is derived.

Most Kratom sold commercially is dried and powdered Mitragyna speciosa. Many consider the powder form the cheapest way to take Kratom, but some people consider capsules the best way to take kratom.

Depending on the user and individual, the dosing of kratom can vary. Low doses of Kratom are reported to produce energetic and euphoric effects, whereas higher doses are reported to produce an opiate-like effect.

Similarly, different types of Kratom can produce different effects. At Kratom Bloom we sell only the best Kratom, which is lab tested, verified, and of the highest quality. Our current selection includes, re white and green Maeng Da Kratom; red, white and green Borneo Kratom; red, white and green Bali Kratom; red, white and green Malay Kratom; red, white and green Sumatra Kratom; and red, white and green Thai Kratom.

The most important distinction to know here is that the maturity of the plant is what varies between red, white, and green Kratom. White comes from an immature plant; green from a maturing plant; and red from a mature one.  White and green Kratom are said to produce stimulating and euphoric effects, whereas red Kratom is known for its opioid-like and pain-relieving effects. The geographic part of the names, such as Thai or Bali, denote where it was grown.

Kratom has been used in Southeast Asia for well over 100 years. Many have reported to use it for energy, pain, anxiety, depression, mood swings, and opioid addiction. The best Kratom strain will always depend on the desired effect. Many people say that the best Kratom for pain and the best kratom for sleep is red Kratom. The best Kratom for energy is white Kratom. And the best Kratom for euphoria is green or white Kratom.  

You Can Use Kratom to Help Alleviate Pain

Kratom is increasingly studied for its potential in the management of pain and opioid abuse.

A popular documentary, A Leaf of Faith, explores Kratom’s use by ex-athletes for pain management. Former WWE wrestler Chris Weisse is an outspoken supporter of Kratom and reveals in the documentary that he used Kratom to help him stop taking a variety of pharmaceutical drugs.

Kratom’s therapeutic potential derives from the 40 alkaloids the plant provides. Alkaloids are nitrogen-containing organic compounds that perform a variety of functions for plants and are consumed whenever people eat those plants. Importantly, alkaloids can produce mind-altering effects. Caffeine is an alkaloid, for example. The therapeutically beneficial alkaloids in Mitragyna speciosa are mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. These alkaloids interact with the brain’s mu opioid receptor which is responsible for processing reward-related signals, such as pleasurable feelings, when a person uses opiates or other narcotic substances.

The appeal of using Kratom for pain management and opioid addiction is two-fold: (1) anecdotal evidence suggests that it helps tens of thousands of people with pain management and (2) it works without the negative side effects of opiates.

As mentioned previously, many people consider the best Kratom for pain to be a Red strain, often the Red Bali or Red Maeng Da strains.

Kratom has also been known to promote general well-being. Many people have used Kratom for the euphoria and energy it induces. These attributes are known to be found in the green and white strains. Some of the most popular are the Green Maeng Da, Super Green Malay, Green Thai, and White Borneo. So if you want the best Kratom for energy then you want a white or green kratom strain.
