What Conditions Does Kratom Treat?

Kratom has been in the herbal market for many years and the most frequently asked questions is “Which kratom is the strongest?”

Even though this seems to be a very normal question, but for many getting the right answer is the most difficult part.

The main difficulty in stating which strain is the strongest than the other is because of the differences in the alkaloids of different kratom, which can have many various effects.

We know how much this question bothers the users of Kratom, so we created this article, which will discuss the different types of Kratom strains for different needs.

Each type of kratom plant, growing conditions, and strains are different, the dosage is different and hence its effects are also different.

We have different categories of moods for describing which kratom is best in which situation:

Kratom for pain reduction

Painkilling is one of those sensations for which Kratom is used a lot.

People who use kratom as a medicine know that one of its biggest ability is to reduce pain.

The pain-reducing effects in kratom come from the main alkaloids, 7-hydroxymitragynine, and mitragynine, which also adds a mood-boosting effect.

For pain killing, the most intense Kratom strains are:

  • Maeng Da: It is so far the most effective Kratom strains for painkilling, it is useful for reducing pain without any sedative effects.
  • Bali and Borneo: Over time these two Kratom strains have become similar to each other mainly because of their same alkaloid band. It is the highly recommended strain for analgesia.
  • Indo White: the Indo Kratom strains are commonly referred to sedatives with different sedative variations – often hybrids of Bali and Borneo Kratom.
  • Malaysian: This strain is excellent for use regularly for pain reduction without any negative effects.

Prescribed dosage: Moderate to high.

Kratom for energy boosting

A lot of Kratom users use it to get an energy boost. Getting the desired energy level makes kratom strains more popular among users.

The energy that a good strain offers is more powerful and much smoother than what you can get from caffeine, making it the right choice for getting the best energy and focus on challenging work.

Top energy boost Kratom strains:

  • Thai: This strain has a tough competition with Maeng Da strain, as stimulation of both the Kratom strains is fairly the same, with some omissions.
  • Maeng Da: Maeng Da is a great strain when it comes to boosting energy it also provides pain-relieving effects. Typically it is the strongest kratom strains.
  • Malaysian: Normally it’s a less stimulating strain than Maeng Da and Thai, but it has normal energy-boosting effects.

Prescribed Dosage: Moderate.

Kratom for better sleep

Similar to strains that used for an energy boost, many users take kratom for sedation to unwind after a long day of tiring work and for those who are dealing with anxiety.

  • Bali: To be honest, Bali is one of the most effective strains when it comes to sedation, and it will not disappoint you.
  • Borneo: Similar to Bali in pain reduction, Borneo is also a popular strain when it comes to sleep effects, but it is less sedative than Bali.
  • Indo: Normally, the Indo strains have the same sedation effects as Bali and Borneo. However, Indo’s sedative effects seem to be more flexible.

Prescribed dosage: Moderate to high.

Kratom for mood enhancement

The mood-enhancing effects are another major reason people use kratom strains to get the best and most euphoric strains.

On the whole, the main chemicals that shake the mood are the opioid receptor agonist alkaloids and the adrenaline receiving antagonist alkaloids.

  • Maeng Da: Because of its perfect combination of stimulating alkaloids and painkilling effects, it has considered being the most euphoric and most energetic kratom, even though there are many potent and new competitors in the market.
  • Bali and Borneo: Anyone who has used Bali or Borneo strains know their potency of mood uplifting. Depending on the strain and its growing conditions, the Kratom tree itself, Bali, can compete with Maeng Da.
  • Indo and Malaysian: Generally, the mood-enhancing effects of both the Malaysian and Indo strains are similar. However, Indo is more variable in its effects, and in some cases, it can also be euphoric or hardly mood-enhancing, depending on its quality.

Prescribed dosage: Low to moderate.

Kratom for depression relief

Kratom has also been used to deal with depression.

And the type of strain that should be used for dealing with depression is debatable.

Selecting the right type of strain and vein-type needs some patience, and it is essential to see that it affects your body – while one strain is good for depression initially with time, it can lose its effects.

  • White veins: Generally, people who used white veins for dealing with depression had great results. The reason is this the white strain is less sedating, and its effects are subtle and energetic, and they offer a feeling of natural happiness.
  • Green veins: Normally, green strains are not a good option for treating depression, but there are some people whose green veins work well. So if you think a green vein will affect you, then you must start by picking a less sedating strain like the green vein Malaysian or Thai.
  • Maeng Da and Thai: For energy, Thai strains are the boss. Along with Maeng Da, and so far, these strains are considered the best when you need a boost of energy. With that being said, they are not the right choice for using daily as their effects tend to wear out quickly, and it leaves you with a high tolerance level.

Prescribed dosage: Moderate.

Kratom for Opiate Withdrawal
