Kratom, who’s scientific name is Mitragyna speciosa, is a tropical evergreen tree in the coffee family that is native to Southeast Asia. Kratom leaves have been traditionally used in these regions for centuries. The leaves are often consumed fresh from the tree or by brewing them into a tea or in a capsule form. Kratom is used to enhance energy, physical endurance, elevate mood and alleviate pain.
There are four major strains of Kratom which have different pharmacological effects in humans.
White Vein Kratom is an incredibly versatile herb recognized for its stimulating properties. It is widely used as a natural alternative to coffee and other stimulants to enhance energy and productivity.
Green Vein Kratom is one of the most popular kratom strains. It intertwines the stimulating properties of a white vein strain with the soothing benefits that come from red vein varieties. Green veins are known to give users a blend of mental clarity, focus, and calmness that lasts throughout the day.
This potent strain contains high levels of alkaloids which contribute to its signature potential effects: pain relief, sedation, stress relief, and relaxation.
While this variety can potentially provide temporary relief for chronic pain or anxiety, it also delivers a feeling of energy for many users while still being gentle enough for everyday use.
Gold Kratom is one of the most sought after strains because of its unique properties, which is its ability to attend to a large range of issues from pain to stress to focus. The gold strain will have a slight energy boost, while also having euphoric qualities and having some of the analgesic properties of a typical Red Vein.
