Kratom’s pain-killing effects are very pronounced and are much more effective than OTC substances when dealing with chronic pain. Many people have become entirely pharmaceutical free thanks to its pain-killing effects.

Besides these, there are many more areas in which using Kratom for pain can be effective.


The primary reason kratom is so effective for pain are it’s two primary painkilling alkaloids: Mitragynine, and 7-OH-mitragynine. Which have agonist activity at mu and delta opiod receptors, effectively dampening the body’s perception of pain. As a result, those who are looking for pain relief from kratom have had best effects with strains high in these two alkaloids.


Leaf alkaloid content can vary from plant to plant, and from strain to strain, however, there are a few strains which seem to be the most effective for pain overall. The most popular strains for this purpose are:
