Kratom is an indigenous tree that thrives in the deep jungles of Southeast Asia. For many years now, the people in these forests have been using Kratom as a part of their healing routines. For a farmer who spends the entire day toiling under the hot sun, nothing is more soothing than a warm Kratom tea brewed with simplicity and very less effort. Let us understand the Kratom experience as described by many Kratom users:
Kratom – The Stimulating Beverage
Most of the Kratom users prefer to start their day with Kratom. Kratom unlike coffee does not produce sudden bursts of energy. Rather the release of energy is slow and sustained so that the body gets used to it. Also there is no sudden slump of energy. Hence for a typical user, who begins his/her day with 2-4 grams of this herb, the typical Kratom experience can be described as “stimulating”, “invigorating” and “energizing”. At this stage the mind is more alert, one’s concentration improves and all melancholy disappears.
Kratom – The Relaxing Beverage
Many a times a person wants to relax, yet he cannot. His body is overcome with fatigue. There are a thousand things weighing on his mind and he is unable to fall asleep. At such times, Kratom lulls the body into a complete state of relaxation. At this stage, a person is able to completely De-stress and fall asleep. Conditions like insomnia disappear. Hence, at higher doses like 8 grams, the Kratom experience can at best be described as “relaxing” and “sedative”.
Kratom – The Healing Herb
Kratom is gentle on stomach. At slightly higher doses, it eases the chronic, nagging pains of many years. The aches disappear. You will be able to breathe in a lot more easy and experience a healing at both the physical and psychological levels. With the pains behind you, you will finally be able to experience freedom. Hence people who suffered from conditions such as lupus, fibromyalgia and other chronic pain conditions have described their Kratom experience as “Healing” and “Gentle”.
Kratom – The Euphoric Herb
As the pains and aches gradually subside, the body slips into euphoric state of mind. The user hovers between lucid dreaming and waking up. At this stage, there might be a little nausea, but it gradually subsides on lying down. At this stage, the Kratom herb mimics the opiod. But herein lies the difference, Kratom does not damage the body the same way as these opioid do. Kratom heals the body. Hence by a recovering drug addict, the experience is most often described as “euphoric”.
The Kratom experiences as described above are unique and different depending upon the type of body, metabolic rate and the purpose for which the user is consuming Kratom. However in a nutshell, the Kratom experience can be described as “enriching” paving the path for many users towards hope and freedom.
