i was reading this post on how kratom has been used in traditional South Asian medicinal practices for centuries and has only recently gained popularity in the Western world and I think it will be a great read for anyone who is interested in how kratoms work.
Kratom is a mitragyna speciosa tree that is native to Indonesia, Thailand and South Asian countries. The leaves of the tree are carefully picked, dried by improved and safe mechanisms and then processed into powder which is used in treating various medical problems.
It is noteworthy that kratom in its finished form is not available only in powdered form, it can be found as capsules as well in both physical outlets and online stores.
The choice of form is dependent on your peculiar need.
Findings reveal that maeng da kratom, which is a superior form of Kratom came to be through grafting and the various strains of maeng da are as a result of the leaves positioning which influences how much sunlight it receives and hence the reason for the variety in strains. The strains of a typical maeng da kratom tree vary from green to red and white.
Another source claims that the differences in drying methods are what gives Kratom its different color strains of red, green, and white.
It’s normal to think these strains just imply difference in colour, however this is found to be untrue as their impact is far reaching in their potency and beneficial qualities.
Red Kratom is usually preferred for use by individuals who may be experiencing withdrawal symptoms from heroin, cocaine or any other opioids. It works in the same way as opioids by binding with opioid receptors in the brain, giving you a relaxing feeling.
White-veined strains are suitable for people who need a remedy for their low energy levels. It stimulates the body while alleviating the energy so that they can work for a prolonged time when ingested at suitable doses.
If taken in large quantities, findings reveal this strain may work as a sedative helping people struggling with insomnia and chronic pains.
Green Maeng da kratom on the other hand is an intermediary between the white and red leaf strain. Most users of this strain are looking for a safe way to improve their moods and balance their emotions.
Like I earlier stated these strains vary in intensity and beneficial qualities from the red’s sedative and pain-relieving effects, the white’s energy boost and mood enhancement properties, and green’s mixture of pain relief and increased energy.
Maeng Da Kratom is viewed by many as the most potent form among the types of Kratoms existing.
Is there any side effect?
Each strain of maeng da Kratom is suited for certain condition, so it is always advisable that you choose a strain that relates to your condition.
If you buy based on popularity, you may experience side effects like headache, digestive upset, nausea, dizziness, irritability, increased anxiety, changes in appetite, constipation, and restlessness.
