You might be wondering, what is kratom? Even though used by millions of Americans on the daily, it is not something that is talked about a lot. Kratom leaves come from a tropical tree that originates in Southeast Asia. The leaves contain a substance called Mitragynine that is able to have subtle, yet mind-altering effects. It is known for being able to soothe pain, anxiety, or depression. This article will be focusing solely on the strain of kratom which is ‘white vein kratom’, it will dicuss the product itself, the benefits, some possible side effects, and the recommenden dosage.
The origin of White vein kratom
White vein kratom leaves are found in the middle of the kratom tree, getting a balanced amount of sunlight. Generally, the white strain of kratom is known to be a stimulant and to enhance a positive feeling and mood. Each strain of kratom has variations as to what it can do for you, and of course the effects also depend on the indvidual themselves. The white strain, however, is generally the most ‘euphoric’ one out of all of the strains. It is also common for white vein kratom to be taken as a substitute for coffee, as it will increase alertness, focus, concentrations, and also cheerfulness. It can also be a substitute for medication such as ritalin; as a better alternative, individuals will use white vein kratom for a long day of work for an increase in motivation and concentration. It is not really a good idea to take white vein kratom very late in the day, as it can result in very restless sleep. You can chew the Kratom leaves, or boil them and make them into a tea. Kratom extract can be used and made into a liquid product, and this is the kratom form often used to treat muscle pain. Probably the most ‘popular’ way of consuming kratom is in powder capsule form. Generally, though, this product will heighten your positive mood, and de-stress you. As mentioned before, it also depends on the person, so your white vein kratom experience might not be exactly the same as your friends.
Depending on the exact type of white strain kratom you choose to use, here are some of the general benefits:
- Helps you feeling focused
- Provides relaxation to decrease stress
- Provides an enery boost
- Helps to relieve pain
- Mood-boosting abilities
- Relaxing and calming effects for better sleep
As you can see, white vein kratom has a lot of benefits to it. If you are facing a tough day at work or school, feeling focused is really able to help you get far. The same counts for if your stress levels are high, you will hardly get anywhere because you will be too distracted. Of course, if you are in a good mood everything that you do will be more enjoyable and you will be able to proceed in a smooth manner. And a good nights sleep is essential for a productive, good day. Overall, little reason not to give white vein kratom a try.
There can however, be some side effects. Even though kratom users praise the product, research has shown that there are also drawbacks to this tropical leaf. Some of them include:
- Dry mouth
- Nausea and vomiting
- Liver damage
- Constipation or changes in urine
Side effects on the mind and nervous system include:
Further research has also shown that, kratom on its own is not necessarily harmful, it is rather the (subconcious) mixing with other substances. Mixing high amounts of kratom with alcohol can have extremely harmful consequences. Mixing it with perscription medicine may cause abnormal brain function; if this happens you might experience severe headaches, feel confused or unable to communicate. Kratom is not advised to be taken before using machinery or driving, as it can cause drowsiness. It is also definitely not advised to be used during pregnancy, as the child can develop withdrawal symptomps which will then need be treated.
There is a slight difference in kratom dosages to be taken, depending on the reason you are taking it. To increase energy, mood, and focus, you should between 25mg and 50mg. In order to remain safe, you should not take it every day, but rather when you really need it; the maximum should be 3 times a week. On the other hand, if you are taking white vein kratom for other purposes, such as treating anxiety and pain, between 50mg and 100mg will do, of course depending on how severe your case is. The best is to start with lower amounts and work your way up to a desired quantity. White Vein Kratom has higher amounts of Mitragynine (the substance that works all the magic), so ridiculous amounts of it will most likely not be needed.
To summarise, white vein kratom is definitely something to think about if you need that extra boost in terms of mood, focus, concentration, joy, or pain relief. It is a natural cure that can be consumed in a variety of ways, making it accessible to many. On the other hand, it remains very important that you do not become dependant on this multi-purpose leaf. And as much as it has a number of benefits to it, research has proven that there are also limitations. Even though these limitations usually only occur if the kratom is taken in ridiculous amounts, or mixed with other substances such as alcohol or prescription medicine, you should still be very careful because side effects could be lethal. It is also important to keep an eye on your dosage, not that this is expected to be a big problem, as white vein kratom has higher amounts of Mitragynine, meaning it will be able to serve its purpose with the recommended amounts of dosage. Overall, it is a good alternative for any kind of chemical medicine or things of the sorts, but it should still be taken with cause.
