What is Kratom
Kratom is an herb that has been used for centuries in Africa and Southeast Asia as an energy-boosting substance. The fieldworkers in Asia would chew the leaves to ease the pain of back-breaking labor in the rice paddies. The compounds in kratom relieve chronic pain and can both increase energy and help with relaxation, depending on the strain and dose. Kratom can also be used as a weight-loss aid. Addicts recovering from opioid abuse find using kratom helpful in decreasing withdrawal symptoms. The use of this amazing natural herb has shot up in popularity in the past five years.
Kratom Tea and capsules
The most common way of ingesting the healing compounds is in the form of a finely ground powder called kratom tea. Users who prefer tea bring a pot of water to a simmer, then add a dose of powdered leaves to steep for about fifteen minutes. The liquid is then strained through a filter, whereby the tea is ready to consume. The all-natural beverage can be fortified with lime or lemon juice, which strengthens the alkaloid (pain-dulling) properties. The effects of drinking the tea and ingesting kratom in this manner take about five minutes to become noticeable and can last for several hours.
Taking the substance in capsules is another preferred method of ingestion. The leaves are ground into a powder, which is then placed into easily swallowed capsules. Many people prefer taking kratom capsules over other methods of ingestion due to the ease of measuring a dose. When you want to keep your dosages exact, it helps to be able to count out how many capsules you need in grams.
The compounds in this amazing naturally occurring herb have curiously different effects when taken in different dosages.
A lower dosage will cause alertness, boost mood and energy, depress the appetite and behave as a stimulant. When taken in higher dosages, the substance has soothing properties, inducing a feeling of euphoria. Kratom can also help insomniacs find relaxation so they can slip into a deeper slumber. Too high a dose may cause problems from slowed breathing, slowed digestion symptoms (constipation), and anxiety. The typical dosage recommended for kratom powder tea is anywhere from one to five grams.
Whether you are taking tea, capsules, or any other form of the powder or leaf compound, experts recommend starting at low dosages and then ramping up slowly. Start with 2 to 3 grams, then wait 20 to 25 minutes to see if the effects take hold. If you still do not notice the effects, raise the dose by 0.5 to 1 gram at a time, waiting around 25 minutes, until the intended effects materialize.
