Kratom is becoming more well-known as a psychoactive and medicinal plant, and is originally found in Southeast Asia. The Kratom tree is usually between 4-9 meters tall, but under the right conditions it can grow up to 30 meters in height. The leaves of the tree are dried and grinded. In Southeast Asia, Kratom has been used for centuries for its calming and relaxing effects. In low dosages (2-4 grams) it is used as a mild stimulant. Higher dosages (4-6 grams) give an opium-like high. It makes you feel good, it clears your mind and is mildly euphoric. It also has an analgesic (pain-killing) effect. Too high dosages can cause nausea and a nervous feeling. The active compounds in Kratom are mitragynine, mitraphylline and 7-hydroxymitragynine. Bali Kratom generally has a more sedative effect than the Thai or Maeng Da Kratom. Kratom gives a dreamy effect, but it does not stop you from being active. This is why many artists prefer Kratom over Cannabis.
50 grams (powder)
Bali Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa)
Kratom does not taste nice. Cold water seems to have a better effect on the taste than hot water. In order to minimize the amount you have to swallow, use a little bit of water to mix the powder with. You can also boil it slowly, using very low heat. Let it cool down before drinking. Making a milkshake or smoothie with Kratom is also an option. The last method is to put the Kratom into capsules. In low dosages (2-4 grams) it is used as a mild stimulant. Higher dosages (4-6 grams) give an opium-like high. The effects usually begin after about 10 minutes and last for about 4-5 hours. This depends on the dose. Taking Kratom on an empty stomach results in stronger effects than taking it on a full stomach. Kratom can make you feel a bit nauseous. This nausea is a normal side-effect that disappears by itself.
The use of Kratom is not without risks. When used regularly it can be addictive. Side-effects such as a dry mouth, diminished appetite and constipation have been reported. Extensive use can lead to weight-loss, sleeping problems and skin discoloration. Driving under the influence of Kratom is NOT recommended.
