Kratom Effects and is Kratom a Legal Opiate?

White Vein Kratom Tree

Kratom effects vary from strain to strain and from one person to another. There are many Kratom strains from varied geographical locations for example, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos.
Each location produces exceptional Kratom however there are many varieties and each one has its own and unique effects. What is more relevant to the kratom effects is the vein color which many people forget to take into account. We will look at vein colors and effects further in.

Red Vein Kratom Effects

Red Vein Bali Kratom effectsLets move onto the different types of Kratom available and how to choose the best strain and vein colour for its effects. Lets start with some very popular types of Kratom, for example Bali kratom or Thai. These are largely sold without their vein classification but generally, these strains come from red vein trees. Red vein kratom is by far the most popular and commercially available in todays market. So why is red vein kratom so popular?

There are many areas of South East Asia where red vein grows naturally, and more importantly in abundance. Our farmer’s studies suggest that red vein kratom seeds and cuttings are far more viable than that of green and white veins. This gives you an idea why Bali red vein kratom is commercially available and our number 1 product. What about the effects?

Premium red vein Bali kratom is highly sought after for its strong analgesic properties, promoting deep euphoria and relaxation. Many people are using Kratom as an alternative to opiate based prescription medicines. Kratom is being used to great affect to provide relief of opiate withdrawal whether from prescription medication or recreational use. By substituting a strong habit forming opiate with Kratom many people have successfully weaned themselves off the semi-synthetic drug Hydrocodone, then reduced their kratom dose to live a drug free life. For those of us that have to manage pain daily, Kratom is 100% natural and isn’t going to leave you foggy minded on a day-to-day basis.

I hope you are beginning to have an understanding of how premium red Bali kratom is being used in cases of advanced pain and opiate withdrawal. What makes Kratom interesting is many people find it has multiple uses depending upon dose, personal tolerance, weight and metabolism. Using a small dose of Kratom (1-2g) tends to be more stimulating with mild pain relief even when using a premium Bali red.

Maeng Da Kratom is another extremely popular product with a slightly different alkaloid profile to that of the Bali kratom. While maeng da has many followers for pain relief it’s the clear leader for use during the day. Proving popular for energy and stimulation.

Red Vein Bali Kratom EffectsAs you are beginning to learn Kratom can have varied effects depending upon the dose and strain you choose. An example would be helping to control stress and anxiety especially in smaller 1-2g doses. All Kratom should help you relax, feel calm and be contented.

We stock many different strains in various vein colors so you have variety. We strongly believe having a diverse range of products makes us a one stop shop and being able to cater for all of your health needs.


I hear that White Vein Kratom is the best for energy?

Green Vein Kratom

White vein kratom is steadily increasing in popularity as customers realise the many benefits of a good white. White vein kratom is well documented to have more energetic effects than the red Bali kratom for example. While red veins are very popular many people want a Kratom that can be used during the day without being over relaxed. We know many people use white vein kratom as their morning tea to promote energy and concentration.

White vein kratom comes from many areas of South East Asia but the most prominent is Indonesia, the island of Borneo to be precise. Some people may find white vein kratom mildly effective. This can be the case if the user is accustomed to a more sedative red vein. We offer the rare Sunda white vein which is proving very popular. We find customers that sample the Sunda tend to order it over and over again. Highly recommended.

White veined kratom is known to have profoundly relaxing effects when using a higher dose. This can have advantages. Using 1-2g of Kratom in the morning as a pick me up is popular then bumping up the dose late in the afternoon helping to wind down and relax after a hard days work. Remember all kratom has pain killing properties some more than others, so it’s up to you to find which Kratom works best for your needs and in what dose. Now you have a general idea about red and white vein kratom effects but what about green vein kratom?

Not much is known in the west about Kratom’s effects, why is that?

maeng da bali kratomThe East has always been known for amazing herbal solutions to everyday problems. Many wondrous herbs and roots such as Ginseng and Gingko Biloba were ignored for decades by Western society. Only since the information revolution has the discovery of beneficially rich flora, such as kratom been so prevalent on this side of the Pacific Rim. Green vein kratom is probably the most underestimated Kratom of all three strains.  The best way to think about this strain is imagine its effects are in the middle of the red and white vein. Green vein kratom is harvested from Indonesia and Thailand but the most potent is green Malay kratom. Many people prefer the stimulation from Green Malay Kratom and still benefit from its pain killing effects. Green Malay kratom is a good all rounder; it has energy, great for motivation, calming and strong analgesic qualities.
Is Kratom addictive? What you need to understand is that Kratom can be habit forming, meaning if you were to use it every day or you have an opiate tolerance you would require a higher dose to get the same effects. Depending upon what you want to use Kratom for we would advise to alternate your strains. So for example you could use a red Thai maeng da one week then a green Malay the next and so on. What is becoming popular is making blends allowing you to hone the perfect kratom. Also don’t forget all of our powders are super micronized (flour). Tiny particles doubles the surface area, enlarges alkaloid profile and greatly increases the kratom effects. If you are not sure what kratom will be best for you I would highly recommend one of the 9 gram or 1 ounce sample packs. They are the cheapest way to go if you are not sure Where to Start.

Kratom is not considered addictive compared to opiates. It’s no harder to stop using kratom than stopping to take your morning coffee. Using Kratom daily is not recommended. To get the best kratom effects avoid building up a tolerance plus over use can become expensive. Personally, I use Kratom every other day to help manage lower back pain and I do not have any problems or withdrawal on the days off.  Like any natural herbal product, you have to use kratom responsibly. You need to find what your preferred strain and dosage are then don’t go above that threshold.

Has anyone ever overdosed on kratom? Kratom is quite unique in that your body will reject it before you overdose. The human body rejects high amounts of Mitragynine and once this has been expelled from the stomach the user soon feels fine. There have not been any legitimate recorded deaths from a kratom overdose.  Unfortunately, Kratom has been falsely labelled in certain media as a synthetic drug. Call me cynical but do you think Kratoms’ bad press could be anything to do with threatening the pharmaceuticals multi billion-dollar profits? Kratom is helping thousands of people to get off highly addictive Pain Killers and lead a normal life.  The pharmaceutical companies will  lose their repeat sales unless they are proactive in helping legislation.

How do I use Kratom powder for the best results and in what dosage?

Kratom comes in many forms from dried crushed leaf and powders to tinctures and extracts. The most popular method is to make a tea from loose powder or leaf, then strain and drink. Another popular way is the ”toss and wash” method, whereby the kratom powder is mixed with a drink of your choice, such as orange juice. The powder and liquid are drank as quickly as possible. Kratom can have a bitter taste, some strains are more bitter than others as you will learn. If you don’t want the hassle of making a tea or cope with bitter powders then a very popular product is using kratom capsules. Capsules are available in both powder and 20x extract. What if I don’t like bitter drinks or gag when trying to use kratom powder? You can add honey or sugar to sweeten but it’s not going to stop the gagging with the toss and wash method. If you are trying kratom for the first time I would recommend the cheapest option which is bulk buy powders or one of our sample packs. If you prefer to use kratom capsules be assured that best practices of manufacturing have been adhered to at all times. We use a state of art manufacturing facility encapsulating maeng da powder for each 500mg (1/2 gram) capsule.

kratom capsulesWhat is the recommended dose of maeng da kratom capsules? To keep things simple you should always abide by the following rules:  To start, take 2 capsules (1g powder) on an empty stomach followed by a hot drink to help the capsules dissolve quickly. Monitor your experience and see if the kratom effects are giving any relief. You can repeat the same dose in 1 hour when you have evaluated the effects. Remember when using powder the kratom effects are stronger than that of a tea where the leaf is not consumed. After the first evaluation of your kratom effects you can decide whether you need a larger dose. We strongly encourage you to keep your dose to the bare minimum when you decide your threshold for the best results. We offer you high alkaloid capsules for guaranteed product quality every time. If you don’t need to use your kratom capsules then don’t, it will save you money. You should only take your kratom capsules when you need to, not everyday like other supplements.

You mentioned earlier about bad side effects if too much Kratom is used? Let me reiterate a high dose of Kratom can lead to nausea, so you must learn your dose. How many Kratom Capsules would be a high dose? A high dose for one person is not a high dose for another. We are all different and therefore the kratom effects us all differently. This can be down to many factors your weight, the more body weight the more kratom you are likely to need. Metabolism, how quickly you can process the kratom, whether you have eaten before hand and of course your tolerance. Kratom tolerance is likely to be high if you are using opiate based prescription medicines. Always start with a small dose and find the correct kratom effects for your needs and NO more, it’s a waste of money. If you are here looking for legal opiates or consider kratom a legal high then it is not for you.

White Vein Kratom TreeAs briefly described there are many factors to the kratom effects but lets take a look at maeng da used in all of our capsules. There are many vendors selling Kratom, after HPLC testing random kratom samples, we found low averages of Mitragynine. Our test results showed Mitragynine content between 0.30mg per gram to 1mg per gram. A good quality kratom would have 0.50mg per gram – 0.80mg per gram. Unfortunately there is low quality kratom available so be careful where you buy. Low quality Kratom will be between 0.10mg per gram – 0.30mg per gram anything above 0.50mg is generally effective but an increased dose is required over a high quality kratom. So what’s the average Mitragynine content of the kratom capsules?

We only use certain parts of the leaf to make powder for the capsules. We take selected (premium) maeng da crushed leaf, then screen all stems and veins from the leaf as these generally have a lower alkaloid content than the fresh green leaf. By only selecting the strongest part of the maeng da we are able to average 1.7mg per gram and use this fine screen in capsule production. How strong are your capsules compared to a bad quality 0.30mg? That’s simple just divide 1.7mg / 0.30mg = 5.66 times stronger than the lowest quality kratom on the market. This means you need less capsules or powder to get strong kratom effects making them exceptional value for money. Do you want to take that risk and have a bad first kratom experience and waste your money? I’ll leave that for you to decide, we work scientifically and are presenting these comparison figures, so you have an informed choice. Whether you buy kratom or not it has been my pleasure to offer some valuable information about the different types of Kratom and effects.
