Kratom, known as Mitragyna speciosa, is a plant from Southeast Asia. Locals have been taking it for centuries due to its many beneficial properties, both medicinal and recreational. It originates from a deciduous tree that is part of the coffee family, making it sought after by those looking for a natural source of energy. It was also discovered to have amazing pain relieving qualities. Workers in Thailand have been chewing on the leaves or making tea out of the crushed and dried plant part, and found that when more of the powder was taken, the same plant that provided their stamina for the day, also brought about relief for their back aches at night. It has since gained wild popularity in the United States, and has proven to be a viable alternative to prescription pain relievers. The user’s ability to control the dose and the effect Kratom has sets it apart from other natural remedies. In lower doses, it acts as a stimulant, while higher doses yields pain relief. Interested? Read on to learn how kratom can start benefiting you (regardless of what end of the mind altering spectrum you are looking for).

How to take it
The taste of kratom can take some getting used to. Users have come up with a few ways to ingest the herb. For those who experience nausea, it might be best to start by taking it in capsules. Lazars has the capsules premade, or you can easily buy vegetable based empty capsules from any local health food store in town. The starting dose is 1-2 grams for those looking to see how the herb affects them and users seeking a stimulating effect, or 4-8 grams for experienced users or those looking for pain relieving qualities. Long-term users report taking up to 12-15 grams for maintained effects. It is not recommended that you go to a higher dose without experimenting on the lower levels to avoid unwanted side effects such as headache or nausea. Many customers like to mix Kratom with grapefruit or orange juice, as this heightens the speed and intensity in which the herb enters the body. A third way to ingest the herb is to dilute it down in hot or warm water. Some users mix it in tea. A last option is to stir it in to a solid such as yogurt. After time, people report not minding the taste at all, and take it quite easily.
