Before you buy Kratom, you should have some knowledge about the many strains and their different characteristics as well as the various forms it is sold in. Getting the most out of your Kratom will depend on the symptoms you are trying to treat.
Kratom is a 100% natural supplement that is being rediscovered in today’s world. This plant derivative has been used for centuries to treat various symptoms such as low energy, depression, pain and anxiety.
However, if you are going to try Kratom, you need to know something about it.
Choosing a Strain:
Kratom originates from Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia and each region produces plants of different strains. The potency and effects of each strain (Red-Vein, White-Vein and Green-Vein) depends on the color of the veins of the leaf of the plant. Each color has distinctly unique characteristics and will produce different effects on the body when consumed:
Red-Vein (sedating calming) Strains: These strains will give you energy, make you more focused and productive and provide a general sense of well-being
White-Vein (stimulating, pain relief) Strains: This will help relieve anxiety, help you to feel calm
Green-Vein (somewhere-in-the-middle) Strains: This is the most popular strain among new users. It offers a general feeling of well-being and the ability to “try out” the other strains by going up or down on the dose.
Which Form to Buy?
Kratom can be purchased in one of three forms:
Crushed Leaves- It is sometimes chewed, but that provides the minimum results. If you don’t mind the taste, you can brew the leaves for an herbal tea. Most of the time it is crushed up and added to drinks or foods for easier palatability.
Powder-It may be a bit more expensive in this form since preparing it requires labor and work, but it is the most convenient form. It is easy to measure, change the dosage and it provides the quickest results as it can be immediately absorbed by the stomach lining.
Capsule-This is a popular way to ingest Kratom for newcomers, as it is most convenient and it masks the taste, but there are a few other downsides to buying Kratom this way: it will be the most expensive form to buy, it’s harder to change the dosage and it takes the longest amount of time to be absorbed into the bloodstream, which delays the effects.
Final Words of Advice:
Shop around and look for a reputable seller. Read online reviews and read up a bit on what’s available for sale before you buy. Decide which strains will provide the maximum effects that you seek. To get the most for your money, check to see how many doses you will get from each purchase by comparing the price according to the potency, dosage and form.
