About Kratom

Kratom (Mitragyna Speciosa) is a tropical evergreen of the coffee family, native to South East Asia, where it has been used for its medicinal values for thousands of years and was first documented in the West by Dutch Botanist Pieter Willem Korthals in the 19th century. Due to it’s unique and varied alkaloid content, the medicinal effects of Kratom are highly flexible and diverse. Kratom has a profound effect on anxiety, mood,insomnia, energy levels, and immune system and is remarkably beneficial as a natural pain management remedy. Kratom is currently being used with high levels of success to effectively reduce opiate withdrawal symptoms due to it’s active compounds mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. Kratom has been attributed with effects that are anti-malarial, anti-inflammatory and lower blood sugar levels.

Kratom Varitals

Kratom has evolved through regional differences and breeding into a variety of strains. These strains are determined by where they originate and divided into three broad categories of effects, namely Stimulating, Sedating and Moderate effects, although alkaloid contents of individual plants may vary slightly. VEIN TYPES The vein colour of this unique plant give an indication of it’s alkaloid profile and a loose guide to it’s effects (with a few exceptions) guiding as to whether the strain will be more stimulating, sedating or a mix of both.

Dosage

Kratom induces stimulant and depressant effects according to the dose used:

low doses (1–5 g or 0-1 heaped tsp) induce stimulant effects, reduce fatigue, alertness, and sociability and are great for lifting the mood and increasing sexual desire

Intermediate doses (5-10g  or 1-2 heaped teaspoons) produce pain killing, anxiety reduction and stress relieving results.

High Doses (10g+) Produce increasingly sedative effects.
