An overview of the Most Euphoric Kratom
Kratom or Mitragyna Speciosa has been around for centuries now. Over the years, the herb has been used for many different purposes. The native Southeast Asians – where Kratom comes from – used this herb for medicinal as well as recreational purposes. One of the most common medicinal remedies of Kratom is in the treatment of pain and opiate withdrawal while in the recreational sector, the herb is commonly used to induce euphoria.
The euphoric properties of Kratom are just but one of the factors that have led to its controversy and subsequent ban in several states within the US as well as other countries. While the herb has proven to be very beneficial medically and recreationally, its psychoactive properties have pointed to the possibility of dependence and addiction. That explains why the FDA identifies Kratom as an herb of concern.
The good news for you is that the risk for addiction increases when you start to abuse the drug. This essentially means that if you were to use the drug as recommended, you’d be much safer from developing dependence, not to mention a host of other side effects.
Here is the problem though, anyone who is using Kratom for the sake of feeling euphoric will always be at a high risk of using more than is required. Whenever someone is using a drug (or herb in this case) to get “high,” there is that chance that they will always take more than is required every now and then to intensify the experience. Besides that, there’s also the possibility that they could start taking it more frequently while chasing that “high.” Both of these scenarios increase the risk of addiction. On top of all that, we cannot ignore that excessive usage of Kratom results in the buildup of tolerance. This is when your body gets used to the compound, thus forcing you to start taking more than your regular doses to experience the same effects. When this happens, you’ll be forced to increase the doses or to switch to a stronger herb, and this will increase the risk of addiction plus adverse reactions.
All these are just but some of the concerns that you need to be aware of before you start using Kratom for its euphoric purposes. Next, you need to know that all Kratom strains do not act the same. Some are more aligned towards delivering certain effects than the others. It’s all dependent on the alkaloid composition. Take note that the dosages used will also play a role in producing the euphoria you are looking for.
How Does Kratom Induce Euphoria?
All the properties of Kratom can be attributed to the composition and concentration of alkaloids. Alkaloids are the compounds found in the leaves of the Kratom trees where the powder you take is extracted from. Typically, you’d find more than 20 different alkaloids in a Kratom leaf. Of the many, only two are dominant, and these are Mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine.
The two alkaloids are responsible for several benefits, including euphoria. Mitragynine and 7-Hydroxymitragynine possess opiate-like properties. This allows the two compounds to get into your brain and interact with some of the opioid receptors in the brain to produce different effects such as euphoria. They are believed to interact mostly with the mu and kappa opioid receptors, where they induce signal transduction to assist in the release of endorphins. In case you didn’t know, endorphins are the chemicals responsible for elevating confidence, uplifting mood, relieving pain, and producing euphoria.
From the working mechanism of Kratom, you can tell that it functions almost the same way as opioids to deliver euphoria except for a few key distinctions. The good news is that it is much friendlier to the system as compared to the aggressive and extremely harmful hard opioids. This should also explain why Kratom is also used for the treatment of opiate withdrawal.
With that said;
What are the most Euphoric Kratom Strains?
Maeng Da Kratom is a special Kratom variant that traces its origin to traditional grafting of several Kratom strains. This resulted in a high alkaloid content strain, which is extremely powerful, unlike the regular Kratom strains. It’s for this reason that Maeng Da Kratom is one of the most euphoric Kratom strains around. It is widely used by seasoned Kratom users who are battling depression, anxiety, and other issues. And that’s because other than inducing euphoria, happiness and mood elevation, Maeng Da will also fight anxiety and depression and deliver a sense of calmness and relaxation.
Maeng Da Kratom is known to deliver fast results. This is good if you don’t want to chill around, waiting for the effects. Unfortunately, it does not last very long, and hence, you may find its effects short-lived.
To many, Maeng Da Kratom is undoubtedly the most euphoric Kratom strain around. However, its extreme potency means that it is not intended for everyone. New users, for instance, are likely to find the strain too aggressive for their liking. For that reason, beginners are urged to go for the lesser intensive strains for a more tolerable experience.
Being such a potent strain, just 2 grams of the herb can be sufficient to yield the desired results. Some people can take up to 4 grams. Not everyone has the stomach for such high levels of Maeng Da, though.
White Borneo is another incredibly euphoric Kratom strain, but it does not get as intense as Maeng Da. This makes it an excellent choice for the guys who are looking for a less aggressive experience. On top of that, White Borneo will also benefit the user in other ways, such as increasing energy levels, concentration, enthusiasm, motivation, and optimism.
Most users have reported the effects of White Borneo Kratom is more long-lasting. This excellent news to everyone who’s looking to enjoy the benefits of the herb for slightly longer.
For the best results, users can take anything between 3 to 6 grams. You have to do some experimentation to find the exact dosage that will work best for you. However, you should avoid going beyond 6 grams as it can get really ugly with dizziness, nausea, and other adverse reactions.
Green Malay Kratom is another remarkable option for anyone who’s looking for long-lasting effects. It may not be as euphoric as Maeng Da, but it’s definitely a decent option for the mere fact that its effects last for an extended period.
Besides being euphoric and delivering happiness and a sense of well-being and satisfaction, Green Malay is also known to offer mental stimulation, energy boost, mood elevation as well as pain relief.
A dose of between 2 to 6 grams should be enough to induce euphoria. Just start low and increase the doses gradually until you hit the desired effects.
So here is the simple wrap up, the above three strains are all incredible in their own ways. If you are looking for an intense experience, Maeng Da Kratom is your best pick. However, this is better suited for experienced Kratom users. On the other hand, if you are looking for a milder experience or if you want the effects to last longer then the other two strains are your best options.
You must also remember to follow the dosage guideline carefully. New users should start low and work their way up until they start feeling the desired effects but without the side effects. Avoid going beyond the set dosage limit as it can get very harmful.
