Kratom Leaf Type
Green kratom from Indonesia can be taken as a capsule, or as a drink mix. A fantastic option for those dealing with pain, mood swings and a lack of energy.
Red kratom, from leaves that have red veins, has a much heavier effect on the psyche. Viewed as a relaxant, it’s the longest-lasting of all three kratom strains, lasting for between six to eight hours.
White kratom is made from young, unripe leaves when the veins are white. White kratom reduces pain and stress levels in the body while encouraging a euphoric, high-energy state.

Kratom is very good at energizing the body; it is why Kratom is primarily used as a psychoactive stimulant inducing high-energy and acting as a pick-me-up in the morning.
In terms of pain management, kratom also latches onto the nociceptors in the brain – nociceptors are the receptors in the brain that manage your pain threshold.
These leaves contain mitragynine, a chemical that activates certain receptors in the brain, particularly those receptors that produce dopamine, serotonin and adrenaline.
