This green kratom from the Indonesian part of Borneo is a mild variant. It is calming and stress-reducing. Several users report that it makes for a good mood. Ideal for people with a morning mood. At a small dose, it has a stimulating effect like coffee.
Researchers praise this green kratom from Borneo for its many positive properties. This may be partly due to the fact that many researchers specifically use this kratom for their research. And that the properties found also apply to many other kratoms.
The benefits found in studies are very diverse. A reduction in exam stress was observed in students after consuming green kratom tea. Another study reports that it reduces ‘neuropathic’ ailments. The researchers give joint pain and migraine as an example.
Also interesting is a recent study in which the scientists concluded that green kratom improves alertness, concentration, and mental clarity.
Most studies are less clear about dosage. Users must therefore determine this experimentally.
Start with a low dose and build up slowly. When using kratom, also take breaks afterward. Because kratom is more powerful than coffee and just as addictive.
In addition to your own body weight and sensitivity, the dosage also depends a lot on the strength of the kratom. Normally, 5-10 grams of dried leaves should be enough for inexperienced users. The dosage can be slightly lower with kratom powder, which is usually stronger than regular leaves (3-5 grams). The same goes for extract. Kratom is not addictive when used responsibly and no more than once or twice a month. More experienced users will feel the need to increase the dosage after some time.
Kratom in higher doses tends to have sedative effects, regardless of which strain is used.
Mild Effect: <3 gram
Reasonable/Good Effect: >3-5
Strong Effect: > 5-6 gram
Kratom has a strong effect on your mood and energy. It reduces fears, while the feeling is described as happy, strong and active, with a calm mind and a strong will to work. Thai workers use it to get through the working day. The effects are felt after 5 to 10 minutes and can last for several hours.
Most people call the effects stimulating and euphoric at a low dose and sedative at a higher dose. This can probably be explained by the fact that mitragynine stimulates the delta opiate receptors in small amounts, but as the dose increases, the more and more the mu-opiate receptors stimulate.
Although the main alkaloids in kratom are related to psychedelic substances, kratom does not appear to have psychedelic effects. The main effects are similar to those of opiates: analgesic and cough suppressant, but also narcotic and euphoric. These effects are approximately comparable in strength to codeine.
Some sources claim that kratom, like other opiates, increases sexual desire in women and can reduce erection problems in men. The positive effect of mitragynine on mood and a reduction in anxiety is probably responsible for this.
Other effects of mitragynine include decreased muscle tone, local anesthesia, and central nervous system depression.
Direct negative effects can include dry mouth, increased urination, decreased appetite, and constipation. Unlike opiates, mitragynine usually does not cause nausea or vomiting. Intensive use can result in a mild form of lethargy.
Kratom is not medicine but has a positive effect on things like:
- Improved concentration
- Energy deficiency
- Pain relief
- Reduction of “craving” in addictions
50 grams of Mitragyna Speciosa Kratom powder.
Most Kratom sold online comes in powder. The easiest way to use Kratom powder is to take it together with a simple drink (water or juice). Here’s how you would take Kratom with a drink:
- Take a small sip of your drink, don’t swallow, and keep the drink in your mouth.
- Take the desired amount of Kratom with a spoon and put it inside your mouth.
- Immediately take another big sip of your drink to wash it off.
- Repeat this as many times as needed for your preferred dosing.
Kratom flavor is very bitter, this method allows you to taste the Kratom as little as possible.
You can also make cold or hot tea together or out of Kratom if you feel like doing so.
