What is Kratom?

The Benefits of Kratom

Kratom (pronounced KRAY-tom) is a common name for the powders or leaves from the Mitragyna Speciosa Korthals. It is a member of the coffee (or Rubiaceae) family, this tropical tree grows in Southeast Asia, particularly Malaysia and Indonesia. Traditionally, users in Asia would chew on the leaves to improve mood and for medicinal purposes.

Today, the leaves are dried and ground into fine kratom powder. While Kratom is not a medicine, when ingested, users have reported that Kratom expresses various medicinal qualities, depending on the strain. These positive effects include:

  • Reducing restlessness
  • Improving focus and concentration
  • More energy
  • Reduces insomnia
  • Pain relief
  • Stress reduction
  • Relieves “craving” in addictions.

Does Kratom have side effects?

Usually, Kratom has few or no side effects. In some cases of frequent and excessive use, nausea and constipation can occur.

What is the dosage for Kratom?

The general rule for dosing Kratom is less than 4 grams for a mild effect and 4 to 6 grams for a more substantial effect. Wait at least 4 hours between Kratom doses. When using Kratom for the first time, exercise caution. Always start with a low dose and wait for the effect.

What types of Kratom are there?

People who take drug tests for their job or school position need not worry, since the herb does not show on drug tests. The reason for this is that it isn’t the same form as narcotics.

Moderate consumption of alcohol with the Kratom may cause more potent, long-lasting effects. If you take alcohol before Kratom, you are likely to experience mild side effects such as headaches and nausea. Also, it is not a good idea to mix large portions of alcohol with Kratom since the interaction is unpredictable.
