All About Kratom
Kratom is an astonishing herbal plant that has been used for decades to relief pain, boost energy levels, improve focus and alertness.
Kratom, also known as Mitragyna Speciosa biologically, belongs to the same botanical family as coffee.
It contains special chemical compounds known as the alkaloids that interact with the Mu Receptors in the brain to produce its effects.
Thus it is not a psychoactive drug and does not alter the chemical makeup of the brain. This has contributed significantly to the growing fame of this medicinal plant.
Kratom – A safe & legal drug
Science backs the effectiveness of Kratom.
The scientific experts have confirmed through their in-depth research and extensive studies that Kratom is a safe drug and does not possess narcotic properties.
It is safe for use and does not cause addiction in the users.
Therefore, healthcare experts are also advising patients to replace the conventional medicines, they use for everyday relief from pain and anxiety, with Kratom.
DEA has also reversed its decision on categorizing Kratom as Category I drug and FDA is also regulating its use for medicinal purposes in the U.S.
Especially at the Rehab Centres to combat the opiate epidemic across the country.
Combining the different strains of Kratom together
Kratom is a leafy plant, with large and wide leaves. It has different strains depending on the following factors:
- Country of origin
- Color of the stem and veins in the leaves
Taking a closer look at the leaf of Kratom shows that the stem and veins carry a particular colour.
This colour shows a number of alkaloids in the kratom strain and the level of effects it will leave on the mind and body.
A lot of Kratom users often mix together the different strains of this plant to attain desired effects.
First-time users may find even one strain of Kratom enough, but those who know how to blend the different types together while still controlling the effects can benefit even more from using more than one Kratom strain.
Kratom strains are commercially available in the form of tinctures and powders.
It is recommended that users invest only in premium quality, pure Kratom products to avoid any inconvenience.
The users can simply combine the powder together and consume it.
Health experts recommend that Kratom users should not create blends from more than two strains as that can become extremely powerful and may cause adverse effects.
Choosing an appropriate Kratom dosage
The daily recommended dosage of Kratom for a healthy individual is grams.
Thus if combining two kratom strains take 1.5grams of each type and mix it together.
But this ratio of Kratom combinations also varies depending on the type of strains that a person is using.
- If you are using one powerful and one mild kratom strain, like the Red vein or the white vein kratom with Green vein kratom respectively.
The use only 1/3rd of the former strain and 2/3rd of the latter.
This ensures that the combination does not become extremely powerful and the effects also don’t go out of control.
- If you are using one mild strain and one slow strain, then the ratio would be ½ and ½ respectively.
- For one powerful and one extremely slow strain, the ratio should be 1/3 and 2/3.
- For both, the strains that are either fast acting or slow acting the ratio recommended is ½ and ½ respectively.
However, irrespective of the type of Kratom combination one is using, it is advised that the blends should not be used more than twice a week.
For example, one can take different strains of kratom on one day and then use it after few days.
And in between only one type of regular strain should be used. This prevents any likelihood of adverse effects and health-related problems caused as a result of an overdose.
