Kratom is a naturally occurring, unaltered substance used to provide a sustained energy boost and physical relaxation without any dangerous side effects. It has been used in parts of Asia for thousands of years as a natural stimulant in a similar way other cultures have used coffee. From chewing on leaves and eating the fruit to brewing it in hot beverages and taking it in condensed forms, kratom is a safe alternative to many other substances for energy and relaxation.
Kratom has two common effects on a person – an energy boost followed by a physically relaxed state of being. Unlike other stimulants and relaxants, kratom doesn’t bring extreme highs or lows with it. Its double effect balances itself out nicely for a comfortable experience from beginning to end. It is important to note that not everyone feels kratom the same way, and dosage plays a big part in how it works.
The energy starts off similar to what one would feel after drinking a large cup of coffee. It provides a noticeable boost that lasts for a long time, but doesn’t have a crash at the end. The energy from kratom tapers off slowly and fades out just as the relaxation feeling starts to take effect.
The relaxation effects come on slowly and mix with the energy as it starts to wind down. It provides a directly calming effect that is a pleasant difference from the crashes of coffee, energy drinks, sugar, and other stimulants. The relaxation kratom brings is often the preferred form for those who have often relied on other stimulants for extended periods of time since kratom’s energy overrides the need for the other stimulant while the relaxation effects calms anxiety and stress.
Again, kratom is different for everyone and the two benefits of it can be affected by dosage. We’ll cover more of that later, but in the meantime feel free to stop by and ask us all the questions you have. We’re happy to help!
