The effects of each type of kratom are unique and depend on the alkaloids contained in it and their power. Scientists have classified varieties into three main categories depending on their characteristic effect: moderate in strength, soothing and stimulating.
Short term effects
Due to the unique composition of chemicals in the leaves, people who use it in small doses felt different effects. Depending on the accepted amount, as well as anthropometric indicators, age, tolerance and other factors, the effect could be stimulating or analgesic.
The smallest dosages of 1-4 g usually stimulate. The action occurs within 10 minutes and lasts an hour or longer. Most regard the sensations as pleasant, but to some they may seem a little uncomfortable. The following effects are also observed:
- increased libido;
- increase in energy;
- improved cognitive functions.
When the dosage is increased to average values (5-15 g), effects similar to the effects of opiates predominate, but not as intense as compared to them. The action lasts longer than at low dosages, up to several hours. Accepted in such quantity by Kratom:
- relieves pain;
- improves the psychological state;
- facilitates withdrawal syndrome.
The use of large quantities (15 g or more) gives a strong sedative effect and sometimes leads to loss of consciousness.
Not a single death related to the use of kratom alone has been reported.
Kratom effects by variety
Maeng Da is an excellent variety known for its high potency. It stimulates and anesthetizes well. It is recommended for those who need a natural analgesic that gives strength, encourages vigorous activity and increases motivation.
Approximate grade characteristics:
- painkillers: 7-9.5 / 10;
- stimulating: 7-8.5 / 10;
- mood boosting: 7.5-9.5 / 10.
Effects of Soothing Varieties
Typically, varieties indicated as sedatives contain less stimulating alkaloids (such as mitraginin) and more painkillers and mood enhancers (e.g. 7-hydroxymitraginine), so they are great for stopping withdrawal symptoms.
Borneo is one of the most powerful sedative varieties of kratom, which relieves chronic pain well, and also relieves stress and anxiety. Despite its power of exposure, it rarely causes side effects. The purity of the variety can be determined by its characteristic aroma. Ideally, red species should be chosen.
Approximate grade characteristics:
- painkillers: 8.5-10 / 10;
- stimulating: 1-2.5 / 10;
- mood boosting: 8.5-10 / 10.
Coloring veins of Kratom leaves: research and analysis
Kratom is unusual in that its action can vary greatly depending on the color of the veins of its leaves. All three species (red, green and white) have unique effects due to different concentrations of alkaloids – in fact, these are almost different varieties. The fact is that the color of the veins is formed under the influence of environmental conditions. It also means that the power and medical effects of the leaves depend not only on the variety.
Red Kratom has a strong sedative effect, relieves pain, relieves anxiety and stress. Compared to other species, it contains a high concentration of 7-hydroxymitraginine.
The leaves of green kratom have a pleasant and harmonious, but the most moderate in effect, therefore they are good for those who do not really need the stimulating and soothing effects of the white and red varieties. Green kratom has higher compatibility with most people than white.
All the above data on the medical benefits of different types of kratom are based on averaged research results.
