Kratom has been used for hundreds or even thousands of years in Southeast Asian countries like Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand. But here in the United States, there are not that many kratom connoisseurs who can give you helpful insights on what kratom strains to take or how to take them.
Kratom is used by many to address specific concerns that include chronic pains from surgeries or injuries, headaches, stress, insomnia, and even diarrhea. The term “kratom” is the name of the tree or plant where those amazing powders, capsules, and essences come from.
You can commonly find kratom products still in their leaf form, but you would probably be more familiar with powder or capsule forms.
For some strains, the effects of kratom can be immediate while others take a while to take effect. But the thing is, those effects often last for five to seven hours. Of course, factors like the particular strain used as well as the dosage taken weigh in here.
If you’re new to kratom and you want to try to see if you will enjoy its effects, kratom connoisseurs suggest these methods for consuming this wonder herb:
Kratom strains come from different varieties of the kratom plant. Sometimes, they are named after the color of their vein. Generally, you can classify kratom as a red vein, green vein, or white vein.
Red vein kratom strains are considered more potent and more sedative compared to other varieties, while the white vein is more stimulating. The green vein variety, which is also a popular choice, offers balanced effects.
This strain is probably the strongest one you can find, that is why it should be taken with care. You should start with no more than 1 gram to 2 grams when you are new to this variety. You would not need a lot of product for you to enjoy the euphoric effects of Maeng Da.
Red vein strains of kratom are known for their potent effects. You can even induce daydreams with just a moderate dose. If you’re looking for euphoric and sedative effects, you will do well to choose a red-veined variety of kratom.
If you do not like euphoric effects that much and you prefer one that is more stimulating, then white vein varieties of kratom would suit you better. White Vein Thai Kratom, in particular, offers remarkably long-lasting stimulating effects.
Green vein kratom varieties, like Borneo Green, sit perfectly between the white and red vain strains when it comes to effects and potency. When taken in moderation, you can achieve the perfect balance of relaxation and stimulation with a green vein kratom product.
As most kratom connoisseurs will tell you, other people cannot tell you which strain you should use. This is because preferences vary and what you want from a kratom product may not be the effects that the person next to you wants.
So go ahead and look for the kratom strain that would suit your needs. Take time to know what you want really and study the effects of different strains. Who knows? You can be one of the known kratom connoisseurs in the future, too!
