What is Kratom?

Traditional Medicine for Modern Ailments

Kratom is a tropical tree native to Southeast Asia. Part of the coffee family, the leaves of the Mitragyna speciosa (Kratom) tree have been used in traditional medicine and religious ceremonies for centuries due to its natural pain-relieving and energy-boosting properties. Leaves from the kratom tree contain two active compounds (mitragynine, an alkaloid, and 7-hydroymitragynine, a mitragynine metabolite) that interact with opioid receptors in the brain, leading to sedative and analgesic (pain reducing) effects, as well as increasing feelings of pleasure.  Used in smaller doses, the kratom leaves result in alertness instead of sedation.

Simply put, kratom is a traditional and natural means of controlling pain, boosting alertness, and increasing pleasure.

Popular Kratom Strains and Their Effects

Maeng Da

This is a potent kratom powder that is revered for its strong analgesic (pain-killing) and energy-boosting properties. While Maeng Da can be manufactured from red, white, or green vein kratom, the most popular products tend to be from red vein kratom. If you’re looking for the pain-relieving  effects of red vein kratom, but need an energy boost instead of a calming effect, Maeng Da kratom powder is the perfect choice for you.

Red Vein

Known for producing a calming effect, red vein kratom is great for well-being and peace of mind. With pain-relieving properties as well, this is a great strain for individuals looking to achieve a higher level of calmness or tranquility in life while simultaneously reducing physical pain and discomfort.

White Vein

White vein kratom is known for being a mood and energy booster. If you’re looking to improve concentration, increase your energy, and improve your mood, these are the preferred products. Don’t just survive the day, own it.

Green Vein

Green vein kratom is known for offering a more subdued energy boost while improving mood and focus. More mellow than red and white vein kratom, the energy boosting and pain-relieving combo provided by green vein kratom allow people to remain active while managing pain. However, green vein kratom can be mixed with white vein kratom to reduce its stimulant effects, or with red vein kratom to negate its drowsy effects.

Green vein kratom is an excellent entry-level kratom product because of its milder effects, but it can still serve as a potent pain-reliever and mood booster. Additionally, green vein kratom can be used to address anxiety and confidence as users report feeling more relaxed and sociable.
