Explore Kratom

Mitragyna speciosa (kratom) is a tropical deciduous and evergreen tree in the coffee family. Explore the different strains below to learn which one is right for you.

Bali kratom is commonly known as “premium commercial” quality kratom. It is the most well known kratom on the internet.

Maeng Da has been historically used for various purposes, but many find its energizing, yet still relaxing, properties to be most the unique and beneficial.

Red Kratom strains feels a lot like a traditional kratom. They are highly regarded for their pain relieving attributes. Maeng Da is known as one of the best examples of a premium red strain.

White kratom strains generally have the full range of kratom alkaloids. As a result, these strains are regarded for their noted euphoriating, stimulating aroma. 

Green strains are notorious for their distinct ability to combine the pain relieving properties of a red strain with the energetic boost of a white strain. Bali is the most well known green strain.

Many kratom extracts are a reformulation of a classic kratom strain. They are a potent alkaloidal extract of kratom thats reapplied to powdered leaf. This results in a significantly more concentrated version of kratom.

    Do you know that approximately five million people in the US use kratom for various purposes? Five million is huge! But why do they use kratom?Kratom is a unique medicinal herb that serves multiple benefits. The research says that from pain relief to help with opioid withdrawal, people use it for several reasons.

    Be careful as kratom has side effects like every other drug and especially like opioids and what it does to your digestive track. Make sure you are AWARE of what the strain does for you and how much you take. It’s easy to get stuck in that revolving door with kratom as well. IF you want to make the best choice, then use Kratom as a stepping stool so you can reach a platform you can work from to further yourself from addiction.

    Hi there I too am looking for a strain that will help with opiate withdrawal does anyone know which one I should order I have the red Borneo but I don’t see that one on many of the other sites and I seem to be taking 2 teaspoons of it I need help does anyone respond to these questions???

    1. Joey

      Maeng Da, or a white strain will be good for withdrawals. Personal experience, the Kratom won’t offer much relief until day 3-5. Hulu is another strain that I find to be powerful and effective as well. Good luck!

      1. Danton Killian

        Green or gold Maeng Da worked great for me. The only problem is that I’m now strung out on the Kratom and have been for over a year. If you use it for withdrawals I suggest you only take an amount that will keep you from feeling your worst. And then less and less as the withdrawals subside.

        1. Ginger

          Omg no ugh my heart is still racing 8 hrs later the clerk suggested Maeng Da having already tried the Red Borneo I am a 20 yr addict opioids, methadone,subs u name it the red Borneo worked wonders the mageng da to me was way to speedy.

    2. Michele

      Hi Trish, I just came on here for the first time or I’d have answered your question. I’ve been using Kratom for three years and nine months and it saved my life. I took it to get off suboxone which I took to get off ten years of taking methadone for pain. While I was doing this I didn’t know that I was also in heart failure (likely due to the years they left me on the methadone) but the withdrawal I’d literally the worst and can last up to two or more years. If I hadn’t taken the kratom my heart would probably have failed completely-killing me. I have been clean ever since- no thanks to any doctors-who would have let me die. But I started with green Bali but any green will probably be fine. Any of it will work. And ALL is better than not using it! It helps with pain, restless legs, body agitation, all the withdrawal symptoms. I no longer use pain medication for my chronic pain. I use my Kratom. Start with less unless you need more. If you feel nauseous, use less. Start at maybe a teaspoon of Kratom to any juice, tea, chocolate milk (which kills the yucky taste the best, believe it or not-or use it to chase it). I boil nestea or Lipton sweetened lemon ice tea and add my Kratom to that so it steeps for a few minutes- or you can take the capsules (but they suck to get down. They are what I started with.) you can add it to anything that works for you. It can and will get you off what you are addicted to as long as you want to. I’m proof of that. Good luck… you can do this!!! 👍🏼

      Probably put really any strain Into capsules and do it that way and get good results. Also Maeng Da would be my recommendation For daytime, I would take a good red vein strain in the evenings/bedtime. Red Bali, red Borneo, red Horn, red indo as well. Then take 3 to 6 of them and start there. Kratom is a natural safe therapeutic, pain relieving, anxiety and depression helping, mood elevating, mental focusing earth made medicine. In my opinion this should be used in opiate addiction recovery. Been sober for 6 years now. Built a family had our son, got a career, and bought a nice house in those 6years of being sober!!! :))) Before finding Kratom I tried everything to help fight the opiate demon. I was homeless 6 years ago due to addiction. Then one day I stumbled across this wonderful Plant Mother Earth made to help Us humans ;D My experience with opiate addiction and The process of the withdrawal/detoxing of your body is a horrible deathly sickening dangerous experience to go through. That’s why people get stuck in a opiate addition cycle due mainly to the sicknesses withdrawals cause. Definitely was one of the most difficult battles in my life for me, Physically, mentally, emotionally, and personal/social/family impacting. Kratom was a god send to help battle my 10 year addiction. Kept my mind, body, and wellbeing together during the process. I wish addiction clinics or even rehabilitation centers would use this to control the horrible deathlike withdrawals opiates induce. Just my random opinion…good luck you can conquer the opiate demon. Much love!

    Hi i just brought the super blend one do that help with opiates withdraw

    1. Sonja

      Hi, Dominique can you tell me what the super blend consists of, I’m interested

  5. Donna

    I just bought a red kali and Maeng Da. I am working toward a hip replacement and have fibro and arthritis. I am active and healthy other than those things. I have a couple of questions:

    What exactly am I supposed to feel? Other than taking the edge off the pain for a little while I do not feel anything else.
    I am doing 1/4 teaspoon right now, not sure how many grams that is and do not know if that is a light or heavy dose.
    I do not have an addictive physiology but I will not take any prescribed pain medications because I do not feel the benefit is worth the side effects. So I do not need recovery, just help with my arthritis and fibro.

    Any advice for me? Thanks in advance

    1. Karen Mokas

      I also have fibro pain and I use 2 teaspoons of red maeng da in orange juice one to two times a day sometimes I only do it at night this works great for me I think you are not taking enough.

    2. Trent

      I use a couple tablespoons at a time, but I have a higher tolerance than most. Regardless, you can probably up the dose to get better results.

    3. Priscilla Hause

      Take at least a tsp

      1. Janice

        I need something for knee pain at night and then something for energy in the day. I am so tired and have trouble staying awake at work. I have had blood work done. They tell me nothing is wrong. I don’t know what or how much to take. Thank you for any help.

  6. Courtney Meitz

    I just heard about Kratom. I have severe back pain, and several other pains naturally. I also have a lot of anxiety. Caffeine really effects me so I’m worried about being amped up, but I’m also susceptible to anything that “ may “cause drowsiness ( I’ll be out for 1/2 a day) I would love to try kratom because I hate the way Percocet makes me feel. I usually take on half at a time, which barely helps. I’m also fortunate to have a sensitive stomach. Yay for me .
    Can anyone help me figure out which kind and dosage to get? Please 🙏

    1. Danny

      I have been on 45mg. A day of oxycodone for 6+ years. Just started using Red vein Borneo a few days ago and the very first day I cut my oxy down to 20mg. a day. I use 2 tsp. dissolved in about 4-6 oz. of water or warm orange juice on is the best to mask taste. Will take 2-3 times a day.

    2. Gil

      For which ever kratom vein you choose, they all cause an opiate-like stimulating, yet relaxing effect. It’s that unique blend of euphoric awakeness and calming sedation. How it effects you, in particular, and considering your sensitivities, will be unique, so experiment. The only sensitivity you should be aware of is, again like opiates, nausea. So dive in with the starter dose of about 3g, or 6 capsules and build from there. For you, I recommend a more mood focused strain like Red Vein Thai. I prefer a mix of white and green veins and currently take about 10-12g (I am 215lb with high liver function and moderate tolerance) depending on my tolerance. Tolerance builds exponentially like opiates, so try to limit use to 2 days in a row then take a minimum of a day off. To avoid the nausea, find your correct dose and ingest very slowly – over an hour or two, or even better, slowly in first 2-4 hours over the beginning of the day. The plant peaks in roughly 1.5hrs, and lasts up to 6 hours after ingestion. Best way to ingest is through tea, it also allows you to add herbs reflecting your needs and sensitivities. Yerba Mate as a stimulant, chamomile as a sedative, and/or mint or ginger to help with nausea, but the kettle is your oyster – put whatever herbs help you the most right on in. I also like regional honey for allergies and sweetness. Put the ingredients in a pot and simply add scorching water. Kratom does not completely break down like other plants so scorching water and the kratom sits for an hour or more; you can add the other ingredients later as water cools down if need be. Boom Bang Pow you feel like oonst rockstar yaa?

    I’ve been on pain meds for over 17 years off and on for chronic pain, back and neck. I have been prescribed high doses of OxyContin Er & Roxicodone for breakthrough pain.
    Now with the new opiate crisis.. now my insurance won’t cover the amount ‘s I’ve been prescribed and they require an authorization, plus the pharmacy now gets a say in what I can and can’t have…I’m really struggling with tapering down. I still work 40 hours every week, I’ve never heard of Kratom until now where some people are trying to sue drug companies. Crazy all of it. I’m just trying to function, work and not be struggling at home and work every day. Thanks for the information, but what would you suggest for someone like me.

    1. Sherish

      Hi I can tell you that I was in a wheelchair for 3 years and on intense amounts of oxycodone and dilaudid. Well they were tearing my stomach up and feeling like even the high amount wasn’t doing much I decided to try kratom. It is the most wonderful thing I have done for myself. I mean I’m outside doing stuff now. No side affects. If you start out and feel nauseous it’s just that you took to much . But once you get your dose right . You will feel great. And I’m finally going to the bathroom every day without having to sit there for hours . Please try this you won’t be sorry. If you are in Canada? Then I would suggest ordering from Canada kratom express. They have the best kratom at great prices and they also do COD so you can order it and it will come to the post office and they will hold it for you until you can come in and pay for it. Good luck my friend. You won’t be sorry 😊

    2. Jane

      I think the Green Maeng Da might be helpful to you. Along with Red Bali.

    3. Mark

      I’ve taken plenty pain killers in my time. I had more trouble with Tramadol than any and I’ve taken all of them. This stuff is a miracle for me. If the FDA takes this away from us they are just cruel. I don’t even want pills any more. I have no noticeable bad side effects from Kratom. It has helped with Anxiety and energy. The pain relief is where it has helped the most. I used to be in pain all of the time. I got so depressed taking Tramadol. Kratom has actually helped me to have normal bowel movements. I guess it has some type of good roughage in it. It has really turned my life around. I don’t feel that I’m a junkie any more. It dont give me that chemical medicated feeling. I can tell it is natural just by the way my body responds to it. I can only speak for me but I’ve struggled with pain med for 20 or so years and this is my miracle.

  8. Abby

    I am new to even hearing about kratom, but I need to find something to help my pain and keep up my energy. What is a good strand for me to start with? I am a 32 year old woman with 3 children and CML (leukemia). I have been having crazy bone and nerve pain that makes it impossible to sleep or even sit down sometimes. I take adderall to sleep (calms my mind enough so I can think about one thing at a time which allows me to cut it off and sleep) weird I know. They give me Percocet 7.5mg but I don’t like the feeling of being out of control or exhausted all the time. I suffer from migraines on top of this. I want to come off of all of my meds (besides chemo). I was counting on CBD but I have tried CBD and I get a massive headache, I tried using a thc/cbd pen and got the spins which made me nauseated. I was sad because I feel I’m running out of options. Any suggestions? I’m willing to try just about anything at this point….

    1. Sherish

      Hi sweetie ok it sounds like your tolerance level is very low and with the children you still need to be alert. I would suggest for the pain and headaches/nerve pain to get Red Bali and for energy and anxiety attacks I would suggest White Maeng Da. But you must start at a small dose . Take 1 gram of the Red and 1 gram of the White . You can get the measuring spoons from a dollar store or 1 teaspoon is 2 grams. Mix them together in a small amount of chocolate milk and chug it real fast. And chase it with chocolate milk. Now this tastes pretty gross like green tea on steroids! Lol. Ok if you find you feel nauseous just take a couple gravol about 30 minutes before you take the kratom and if the gravol makes you to tired then tell your doctor you can’t take gravol and that you would like Meteclorpromonide. It’s a very useful medication for people taking chemotherapy . It’s just for nausea it won’t hurt you. Good luck my friend. Oh if you order kratom and your in Canada. I would suggest ordering from Canada kratom express. They deliver it to your post office and you can pay at the post office when you pick it up COD. And they deliver in 2 days or less. You can also pay to have it delivered that day by airmail 😊

      I just read your post and would recommend Jillian’s juice— you can look it up on internet or Facebook — it’s basically making your own fermented cabbage juice ( one cup shredded raw cabbage to one cup water to one teaspoon of Himalayan pink salt or Celtic gray salt because it has the minerals) put in a jar for 72 hours minimum then drink it — it’s a probiotic and alkaline boosts the systems immune and gives body a chance to start healing itself. Many people have benefited from it who are in situations similar to yours.

      1. Barry

        This has been debunked on the Dr Phil show. She was on there and proved it was nothing more than snake oil.

        1. Anon

          You sound like you work for a pharmacuetical company or at least a representative for one. Snake oil? Who says that anymore? What would be beneficial wise one? The money maker Suboxone or the life sentence of methadone?

          1. allan

            Amen brother. I would eat a turd to get away from pain meds . White mang di. Seems to be helping

        2. Angela

          You have no idea what you are talking about and neither does Dr. Phil!!!!

        3. cass

          DEBUNKED??? Dr. Phill is an idiot anyway…

    3. Aguywhocares38

      Your getting the Rhodes brand of Percocet aren’t you which used to be Perdue! The Percocet causes you to have crazy sciatic nerve like pain it’s insane and the side affect kicks in way later. Insane ! Let me guess medicaid or Medicare? Cvs? Which insurance which pharmacy ? It’s your Percocet generic ! It’s awful trust me it took me 2.5 years to figure it out ! Wean off with kratom and hopefully Xanax and get off of it . Or force it to be in name brand do not go to cvs or major drug stores I guarantee you are getting Rhodes Pharma manufacture. Now what you need to do is a metals detox ! Edta you can find the supplement on eBay 11.69$ ! It took me 1000s of $$$ and years of shaking like crazy in the morning not getting any sleep and yes same here Adderall stopped it same with Xanax but they are gunning for those generics too

    4. Charlie

      Abby, you take Adderall in order to sleep? I have never heard of this unless you have bipolar disorder and you don’t know it. Taking adderall and being bipolar will give you the opposite effect, e.g. stimulants make you drowsy/ alcohol giving you energy

      1. jimmy

        i agree with charlie, if i took an adderall before bed id be sorting my clothes by color at 4 am

      2. Rusty

        For those of us who actually have ADHD adderall calms us down. Take too much and it makes us plain out tired. Most people take it for the wrong reason. If you are hyperactive is has the opposite affect, it calms you down. A little education for you.

      Kratom will be a wonderful experience. I don’t think doctors have a clue about how chronic pain affects people. I was in a car accident almost seven years ago and it did major damage to both shoulders and my right hip. I continue to suffer with horrible pain, but thanks to Kratom I am able to function – not well, but something is better than nothing. I use a walker or two canes to get around, but my mobility is very limited. Kratom has been a God send. It was hard for me to try it, but I am so glad I did. I was beginning to have thoughts of suicide because of the never ending pain. I use Maeng Da either white or green. I wish I could find more people to discuss what works best for their pain. I hope you try it, because I believe you will fine relief.
