A 2021 study suggested that in that year a meager 0.8% of the U.S. population used kratom. So, although Kratom use is becoming more popular right now, as awareness grows, there’s still a long way to go.
Kratom leaves come from tropical evergreen trees. The tree species are related to the coffee family, and they are indigenous to South East Asian countries such as Thailand and Malaysia.
In this short guide, we’ll first discuss kratom types and the benefits of the leaves. We’ll then finish up with a fantastic kratom tea recipe that you can make at home. So let’s get started.
Types of Kratom
There are three kratom types that you can easily classify as different colored veins in the leaves. There are green-vein, red-vein, and white-vein varieties to choose from.
The different colors occur in Kratom leaves due to growing conditions that change their alkaloid content. For instance, soil quality, wet or dry conditions, and the part of the tree where the leaves grow influence Kratom leaf colors.
Arguably the best kratom leaf type is the red-vein variety. The reason is that it has powerful sedative effects that people enjoy and use medicinally.
The Benefits of Kratom Leaves
In general, kratom leaves are good for pain relief and people may use them to treat depression. Others use it to treat addictions, especially opiate addictions.
The reason why people use Kratom for opiate addictions is that there are two compounds in the leaves that affect the opiate receptors in a similar way to how opiates do. However, with kratom, people report fewer side effects than what they would get from using opiates.
Other kratom uses can include treatment for diarrhea and stomach cramps. You can also use it for appetite suppression, meaning you can use it as a dieting tool. There may be many other benefits to Kratom that you can research about.
