Kratom strains for chronic pain
A large segment of the kratom-using population does so as a means to manage chronic pain without relying on dangerous and highly addictive prescription painkillers. Kratom can be a very effective painkiller, but you’ll have to known which strains to use. Kratom comes in many different forms and some are very beneficial for energy or euphoria, while others work well for sleep or to quell pain.
The best strains of kratom for painkilling include Bali, Borneo and Indo, with red and green strains often producing the most calming or analgesic effects.
Red strains often have higher levels of 7-Hydroxymitragynine, which is an alkaloid associated with analgesic effects and stress relief. Green strains can be stimulating and produce more euphoric effects, but types like green Borneo and super green Malay also offer surprisingly strong pain killing benefits whose effects are long lasting.
Many people will use two types of kratom to help control their pain: one for the evening to help them sleep and one for the daytime to help them stay alert and focused while still helping to control their pain.
Borneo strains and Maeng Da strains are often considered some of the most potent kratom types on the market. Maeng Da is a potent pain reliever and Indo and Thai strains have also been shown to have opiate like effects on pain. Some people mix two types of kratom to produce different effects, but we would only recommend that if you were well versed in taking kratom.
If you’re looking to buy green Borneo kratom, red Maeng Da or any of the other mentioned kratom strains, you’ll want to find a reliable supplier who has many positive reviews and to start slowly. Even if you’re a long-term user of kratom, it’s best to dose like a beginner when trying a new strain for the first time, or increasing your dosage.
