In addition to this large range of medicinal applications, this plant also has other positive secondary properties such as high-antitoxin and vitamin content, which has made it worthwhile for general health purposes as well. Kratom is safe in almost every regard, as there have been no known deaths from this plant, except in combination with other dangerous substances.

PAIN RELIEF

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.

As awareness increases, expect to see this plant as a commonplace alternative to opiate medication.

Kratom can effectively reduce pain from conditions such as:

  • Migraines
  • Cluster Headaches
  • Back Pain
  • Minor Injuries: Burns, Scrapes, Broken Bones
  • Arthritis
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Carpal Tunnel
  • Torn Muscles
  • Scoliosis
  • Neck Pain & Soreness
  • Abdominal Pain
  • Chest Pain

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

STRAINS FOR PAIN

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:

STRAINS

  1. Borneo
  2. Indo
  3. Maeng Da
  4. Bali

PREFERRED VEIN COLOR

  • Red

DOSAGE

  • Moderate/High

KRATOM AND OPIATE WITHDRAWAL/ADDICTION

Because of this plant’s pain-killing and mood-lifting effects, it has been used effectively to quit opiates and dampen withdrawal symptoms for both prescribed pain medication and illegal narcotics.

You can find many cases of people using kratom for opiate withdrawal and addiction to both help transition to sobriety, and to combat cravings and post-acute withdrawals as a maintenance substance.

STRAINS

  1. Borneo
  2. Bali
  3. Indo
  4. Maeng Da (Situational)

PSYCHOLOGICAL EFFECTS
(ANXIETY, DEPRESSION AND MOOD-LIFTING)

The psychological effects of kratom are of a very unique nature in comparison to other plants found in nature, contain both sedating and stimulating properties; these effects can differ depending on the strain, plant and one’s own personal chemistry.

Nearly any strain can cause general mood-lifting, but the differences in strain can shift the spectrum of effects between stimulating and sedating.

DEPRESSION

According to uses, this plant may also be beneficial for the treatment of depression; however, not every strain is fit for this purpose. The more sedating strains may have some temporary effects on depression but are lacking in effectiveness long term.

STRAINS

  1. Thai
  2. Maeng Da
  3. Green Malaysian

PREFERRED VEIN COLOR

  • White

DOSAGE

  • Moderate

Some green vein strains have been used for well-rounded depression relief, though individual brain-chemistry may come into play.

ANXIETY RELIEF

There are several ways to maximize anxiety relief through kratom — the ideal strain for anxiety relief is a Borneo strain, though other sedating strains can work effectively, and can also double as a great kratom for sleep. A Borneo kratom strain has a subtle, yet powerful effect of destroying anxiety and restlessness better than nearly any other strain.

STRAINS

  1. Borneo
  2. Indo
  3. Bali

PREFERRED VEIN COLOR

  • Red

DOSAGE

  • Moderate

IMMUNE SYSTEM STIMULATION

Due to the immune-stimulant alkaloids found in kratom:

  • Isopteropodine
  • Isorhynchophylline
  • Isomitraphylline
  • Mitraphylline

Kratom can be extremely effective for boosting the immune system for conditions ranging from the common cold to the flu, or even more serious conditions. Because of this, many have learned to take it at the onset of a sickness to dramatically reduce its duration.

STRAINS

  1. Green Malaysian
  2. Borneo

PREFERRED VEIN COLOR

  • Green Vein

DOSAGE

  • Moderate – Low

NOOTROPIC (COGNITION ENHANCING) EFFECTS

Nootropic substances are a relatively new field of interest, yet it shows much promise. Interestingly, due to strain differences, it has been used as a nootropic in several different areas, such as focus and memory.

Unlike traditional medications for focus, kratom doesn’t make your focus “stick” psychologically, rather it dampens psychological background noise, promoting natural focus ability.

Because strain differences can vary, there is typically no set dose for peak cognition-boosting effects — though it typically ranges from low/medium to medium.

STRAINS

  1. Green Malaysian (Focus)
  2. Thai (Focus/Energy)
  3. Maeng Da (Focus/Energy)

PREFERRED VEIN COLOR

  • White
  • Green

DOSAGE

  • Low – Moderate
