Kratom is an Energy Booster and best-selling in the US.

February 18, 2023


Kratom is a natural remedy derived from the coffee plant family’s Mitragyna speciosa tree. This tree is native to Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, and Papua New Guinea and grows primarily in Southeast Asian tropical climates. It has been used by workers in the area for centuries as an herbal aid for daytime focus and concentration, as well as for sedation and pain relief at night. The leaves of Kratom contain medicinal properties. These are the results of interactions between the brain’s opioid receptors and the alkaloids mitragynine and 7-hydroxy mitragynine. If you’ve researched Kratom, Kratom is one of the most widely used strains.

The five most popular ways to increase your energy that you may not know about.

Coffee is the most widely consumed energy source worldwide, so if you’re looking for a boost, you probably already drink it. Coffee consumption is rising at 15% per year in Thailand alone. The coffee industry is dominated by massive multinational corporations, occasionally doing more harm than good.

Recently, natural products like Kratom and cannabis have taken the place of coffee as the primary source of energy for people all over the world. However, Kratom is frequently favored over smoking or vaping cannabis for power. Let’s examine four common misconceptions and facts about this coffee-related energy boost.

The stimulant properties of Kratom work similarly to those of coffee:

Although Mitragyna speciosa is a member of the coffee (Rubiaceae) family, rather than the main active ingredient in coffee, mitragynine, and 7-hydroxy mitragynine are what give it its stimulating effects: caffeine. Another difference between getting energy from coffee and Kratom is that a high dose of Kratom won’t make you run around in circles or give you the jitters like coffee does; instead, it will probably make you feel more relaxed!

A new trend is using Kratom as an energy source:

It is true that many people around the world use Kratom to alleviate pain. However, substituting Kratom for your morning coffee cup is not a novel concept. Workers in Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia have chewed on kratom leaves since at least the middle of the 1800s to boost their energy, stamina, and endurance for long days at work. Students in Malaysia frequently drink kratom tea to help them concentrate at school.

Modern Western users consume Kratom as an energy supplement to enhance productivity and motivation. Because the leaf is also a well-known nootropic, it can help you focus, improve mental clarity, and feel better overall. 

Kratom only acts as a stimulant in low doses:

The pharmacology of Kratom and the origins of its use will reveal that the leaves of Mitragyna speciosa are sedative at low doses and stimulating at high doses. If you want to use Kratom for energy, this is a good thing because you will not only develop less tolerance to the plant but also use less powder and save money.

If you’re looking for an energy boost, 1–2 grams is a good starting dose, and 2–4 grams is a more common stimulating dose for seasoned kratom users.

Kratom strains with higher levels of energy include:

Although all kratom strains provide some level of stimulation, each one has distinct characteristics that will appeal to different users. For instance, some are better at relieving pain than others, while others are more euphoric.

Kratom has radically become popular in the last five years In the US. 

The herb known as Kratom, or Mitragyna speciosa, comes from a tropical evergreen tree in the coffee family that is native to Southeast Asia. It is native to Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Myanmar, where it has been used in herbal medicine since the nineteenth century. It has also been used to chew, smoke, and make tea. Kratom has effects similar to stimulants and opioid properties.

Due to the poor quality of the research, Kratom was not approved as a therapeutic agent in the United States in 2018. The drug’s efficacy and safety are still unknown. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the United States stated in 2019 that there is no evidence that Kratom is safe or effective for any condition. Some people use it for recreational purposes, to treat opioid withdrawal symptoms, or to manage chronic pain. Within five to ten minutes, the effects typically begin to manifest and last for two to five hours.

According to anecdotal reports, Kratom use at various doses has been associated with increased alertness, physical energy, talkativeness, sociability, sedation, mood changes, and pain relief. Loss of appetite, erectile dysfunction, nausea, and constipation are all common side effects. Respiratory depression (slower breathing), seizures, addiction, and psychosis are among the more severe side effects. Other possible side effects are:

  • High blood pressure and heart rate.
  • Trouble falling and staying asleep.
  • Occasionally liver toxicity.

There may be withdrawal symptoms when use is stopped. Using Kratom alone or combined with other substances has been linked to numerous deaths. High doses or the combination of Kratom and other substances typically result in severe toxicity, which is relatively uncommon.

In 16 countries, Kratom is a controlled substance as of 2018, and the FDA banned the importation and production of Kratom as a dietary supplement in 2014. In 2018, some argued that Kratom could be a tool to help the opioid crisis, while others have argued that there is a growing international concern regarding the possibility of a threat to public health from its use. 

Following a scientific review, the Executive Committee on Drug Dependence of the World Health Organization decided not to recommend a ban on Kratom in 2021. However, the committee suggested that Kratom be kept “under surveillance.” Numerous public health authorities have issued alerts, and its sale and importation have been restricted in some jurisdictions.
