What is kratom?
The scientific name for Kratom is Mitragyna speciosa. It is a tropical evergreen tree in the coffee family. Kratom, also called ketum, is native to parts of Southeast Asia, such as Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, and others. Kratom contains a number of active components, called alkaloids, that are believed to be responsible for most of its effects. Kratom acts on the opioid receptors in the brain. These receptors have an influence on one’s mood and helps reduce anxiety. In general, many people use Kratom for pain relief, for anxiety, and to help fight addiction for hard drugs. However, there is a growing trend for recreational use. There are many users who claim that Kratom helps immensely with focus and motivation. Different Strains & Forms Red Vein Kratom
Red Vein Kratom is one of the most popular due to its high potency as well as less variability in effects based on user. This strain produces both painkilling and stimulating effects. White Veined
White vein is known for it’s effect on depression and lack of focus/energy. White vein Kratom shows the most potential for being a nootropic (cognitive enhancing substance). Many users enjoy using white veined kratom leaves as a coffee substitute in the morning time as it produces a clean alertness and focus. However, white vein does seem to be at the mercy of personal brain chemistry, so the effects can be hit or miss. Green Veined
Green vein Kratom is a more balanced strain that produces moderate effects. You can expect nootropic like stimulation, mood enhancement, and pain reduction when using green veined kratom. Effects of green leaf kratom also tend to be more consistent from one user to the next. Extract
Extracts are made by boiling powdered kratom leaves to the point when all the water evaporates, leaving a residual substance that is highly concentrated with alkaloids. For this reason, this form of kratom is much more costly than others. Resin
Kratom resin is created when extract is allowed to solidify. So put simply, resin is a solid form of Extract. Powder
Powdered kratom is just crushed up leaves. This method is the most highly suited for beginners as it is easy and less potent than other forms of intake. You can mix it with water and drink it, you can swallow powdered kratom with capsules, or you can make a tea out of it like I’ll show you later in this video. Tincture
You may hear this term often in the Kratom community and not know what it means. Simply put, a tincture is an extract made from kratom leaves and extracted in alcohol, vegetable glycerine or apple cider vinegar. These are liquid solutions that you can take orally.
