Before rushing off to buy kratom, expecting miraculous, profound results straight-off-the-bat, you first need to understand the plant, its effects, the onset, and the subtle feeling of what some call the high. Some new users expect an instant quick fix with benefits so blatant that they will need to instantly bring their appreciation and addiction under control.
Kratom delivers blissful benefits to those who take the time to understand what it is doing for them. It is not going to zap your life, sleep, and stress levels into balance. It does bring down the burden of fatigue, foggy focus, and lessen pain, but it takes time to find the right strain, dosage, and frequency of dosage. Supplementing with kratom takes trial and error, and a certain degree of patience, but the rewards are well worth it.
Here we’ll be taking a look at the effects of kratom, detailing to you what to expect from the onset, and what different degrees of intensity will feel like. We’ll also be covering what to do in the case of queasiness, and how to find the dosage which is perfect for a crystal-clear day, free from haziness and laziness. You’ll find that kratom affects our well-being on many levels.
Finding Your Dose
If you are sensitive to the effects of medication, then kratom effects may be quite strong for you. Start with a dosage of 0.5 grams, but for most people, 1 gram does the trick. Most people have to wait for about 45 minutes before the onset begins, but this depends on your individual metabolism.
Begin small and up your dosage every 45 minutes until you are happy with the results. If you don’t find an appropriate dose within three tries, then start again the next day but this time with 3 grams. Many users find that dosage size is so important with such a fine line between stimulation, sedation, and stomach complications (nausea), that they measure out their dose with a digital scale.
Getting it Right
A low dose will stimulate you, upping your energy, talkativeness, and overall drive, while a high dose will sedate you. Any nausea or other discomfort indicates an excessive dose or contradiction with an underlying medical condition, or existing medication. Be sure to evaluate your dosage with every strand and adjust accordingly. Constipation is known to be caused as a common side-effect, with this worsening as over-use of kratom rises. It is, therefore, a good way to evaluate your frequency of use.
At a very low dosage, the onset of kratom arriving within forty-five minutes is barely noticeable. A mild euphoria and heightened alertness increase in intensity steadily, but if your dose is very low, this may be missed. The high experienced by most comes with a fairly high dosage and gives a rush of euphoria within fifteen to twenty minutes. This is also felt when taking kratom for pain relief.
As the level of neurotransmitter activity rises, one mellows out, feeling free from both pain and anxiety. As this happens, some may notice strange tingles and irregular itchiness sporadically occurring. This should be very mild and never cause irritation, but it is a sign that your kratom is kicking. Some feel a slight dizziness which soon passes, but nausea shows that you took too much. The full onset has run its course by the time 35-45 minutes has passed, leaving you with a lasting buzz.
What It Feels Like to Be on Kratom
You may be quite surprised at just how sedative kratom can be if you take too high of a dosage. As little as two grams can send some people straight to bed while others are rewarded high energy and mental clarity for the rest of the day. Once the onset has run its course, you will notice that you are more eager to approach social situations, while benefiting from a much lower overall sense of anxiety.
A good dose is empowering, giving just mild bodily effects, but a boost to your cognitive function which often goes overlooked but definitely makes a difference. The heightened motivation and enthusiasm backed by a steady stream of energy lasts between two to five hours.
At a high dose, you will notice a dilation of your pupils and an immensely elevated mood. Confidence is boosted which thus translates to better decision making. It relaxes without causing lethargy, while increasing your sociability and affinity for empathy. For up to five hours, you will have high levels of pain relief, enhanced sensory perception, whereby everything is more vivid and attention stimulating, and a steady stream and unwavering energy. The most prominent benefit is the euphoria, both mild or profound from a high dose.
Numerous individuals describe this as being very similar to the feeling of opiates. While generally mild, kratom is pleasant, and whether or not you found the benefits noticeable, you will notice them missing once you stop taking this supplement. One can develop a tolerance and the greatest benefits are reaped from a consistently low dose.
Recreational Use of Kratom
At a high recreational dose, some users prefer the sedated feeling of euphoria to the stimulant effects of kratom. While this can be dangerous, hallucinations can occur due to compounds present which have a deliriant effect. General confusion follows high dosages of kratom, with users relishing in the fun found thanks to the elevated feeling of well-being and general good mood which it causes. Dependence can arise, with those addicted even being at risk of falling into kratom-induced psychosis. We do NOT recommend using Mitragyna Speciosa in that way.
The Many Benefits of Kratom
The calm and clarity of kratom come with an elevated overall sense of happiness, and enough energy to back anything that you want to do. Various strains exist delivering specific effects in a similar way to that of strains of cannabis. You can find kratom which is better for relaxing you, others better for pain relief. Be sure to adjust your dosage every single time that you change your strain.
When used responsibly, kratom will lower inflammation throughout your body while bolstering the immune system, and it will help protect you from cancer. The extra energy is undeniable and you’ll love the mood and focus lift. Recovering addicts of all types, from those kicking alcohol, to cigarettes, and opiates, will all find great value in the support which kratom gives. This great herb helps people of all ages bring their body into balance when administered carefully and purposefully.
Until next time,
