The Layman’s Introduction to Kratom Leaves
With Big Pharma taking over the medicinal scene everywhere, many effective organic treatments have gone mostly unnoticed by the public eye. One of these treatments is Kratom, a tropical tree out of South Asia.
The leaves of Kratom plants have been crushed into an extract to be used as a form of alternative medicine, bringing fast relief from chronic pain, injuries, and other emergencies. Take a second to think about that. Kratom is a much better alternative to traditional pain pills because these have a much-lowered chance of abuse. That means you can get the relief you need without risking anything.
And besides, that’s not all Kratom extract can do for you. It’s a recreational medicine used to treat symptoms of debilitating mental conditions like depression and anxiety.
Red Kratom: The Most Balanced Alkaloid Profile
Are There Different Types of Kratom Strains?
Yes! Like most organic treatments, different Kratom leaves are called different strains. Most types of Kratom are named after their place of origin, like Red Bali Kratom (which comes from, well, Bali) and Indo Kratom, which hails from Indonesia.
Different Kratom strains have other effects. The effects can vary depending on the grower and supplier, as different methods of growing the Kratom leaves will often result in slight changes to their chemical compositions.
However, we’re here to talk about a Kratom strain that’s quickly become the favorite of thousands of users around the world for its massive medicinal benefits:
Red Malay Kratom!
What Is the Origin of Red Malay Kratom?
The common belief is that Red Kratom comes from Bali, Indonesia. That’s a general belief, and it holds some value because the plant thrives in the climate of Bali, Indonesia, and Malaysia. On the other hand, some people believe it’s a mix of Red Borneo and Red Sumatra strains.
Regardless of where it comes from, it’s undeniable that Red Kratom is a helpful medicinal plant.
When taken in measured doses, Red Kratom is both a powerful mood booster and a very effective analgesic, which means it’s perfect for first aid in various scenarios.
What Are the Main Effects of Red Kratom?
Red Kratom benefits from a combination of alkaloids that enable it to be an effective medicinal and recreational substance. Besides being able to induce a state of euphoria, Red Kratom also has many other beneficial effects, like:
- Improving Sleep
The first and most common use you’ll see Red Kratom being put to is an aid for insomnia. It can significantly benefit anybody suffering from persistent sleeplessness if consumed a couple of minutes before the patient goes to sleep. Make sure to consume it close to when you’re going to sleep, however, or you could feel sleepy for hours before you can go to bed.
- Immediate Pain Relief
Remember when we said Red Kratom is great for pain relief? We weren’t kidding. Chronic body or bone pains are easily treated by the correct dosage of Red Kratom, letting you get relief for several hours. The best part is that Red Kratom is the most potent pain reliever of the different strains and can help you quickly with its powerful analgesic effects.
- Boosting Mood
Antidepressants are usually very costly. On the other hand, Red Malay Kratom is just as valid as pills to boost your mood and at very reasonable prices!
Red Kratom has gained a reputation as a slow-acting euphoria-inducing substance that helps with depression and signs of anxiety. Seriously, we’re not kidding. However, it’s worth noting that we recommend taking a time-out and coming to your dosage of Red Kratom due to its slow-acting nature.
Using Red Kratom as Relief From Depression and Anxiety
While Red Kratom isn’t what you’d call an opioid, its effects are pretty similar to opioids like morphine or codeine. However, what it means for many people is that they can use it as both a mood booster and a pain relief analgesic.
It achieves this through an ingredient called Mitragynine, which binds to the opioid receptors in the brain and provides pain relief. Believe it or not, a 2017 Drug and Alcohol Dependence review spoke for it in an international journal focused on alternatives to traditional drug therapy.
However, we’ll be the first to admit that research into the effects of Kratom is minimal currently.
Users should be careful when using the substance for the first time, or they could suffer side effects like slight nausea and dizziness.
In the end, there’s not much to say. Kratom is one of the few organic solutions to depression and anxiety that don’t have adverse side effects, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be careful.
Make sure you look up dosage recommendations and consider factors like your gender, age, and reason for use when trying to understand how much you should consume!
