Using Kratom for Sleep: Everything You Need to Know
Getting better sleep consistently is one of the most effective ways to boost mood, wellness, cognitive performance, and overall health. Indeed, people who sleep well are happier and healthier than those who don’t. So it’s not surprising that any substance that delivers improved sleep will attract a loyal following. Such is the case with Kratom. Many Kratom users enjoy the calming effects it has been reported to produce. Others claim that Kratom helps reduce pain from chronic conditions, allowing them to get a better night’s sleep. Today, we’ll take a closer look at how people use this herb for sleep and highlight a few best practices for getting that sleep.
There are two active ingredients in the Kratom plant –– the alkaloids mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine (7-OH). Mitragynine is often associated with pain relief, while 7-OH is considered the ingredient that boosts energy and focus. Different veins of Kratom contain varying amounts of each compound. For example, red and green vein Kratom tend to have more mitragynine (relaxation), whereas white and green Kratom generally contains higher levels of 7-OH (energy). Red strains specifically have low quantities of the energy giving 7-OH, which means the best strains for sleep are going to be reds!
The most popular Kratom Strains for sleep are:
Kingdom Calm Blend is a NEW product that helps take the guesswork out of finding relaxing Kratom strains. Kingdom Calm is a blend designed for relaxation and is perfect for the evening or nighttime. We have taken the best of the “slow” red strains and merged them into one! This blend will boost your mood and relax you, which is rare for potent Kratom. So if you’re unsure where to start with red Kratom strains or want to try a new staff favorite, check this out!
Red Bentuangie Kratom (or Red Bent) is one of the “slowest” strains of Kratom, making it the perfect nighttime strain. In addition, Bentuangie is one of the few fermented strains of Kratom. This fermentation process causes this strain’s alkaloid structure to change, giving it some unique effects.
Red Vein Thai Kratom Capsules are said to have remarkable effects for analgesia and are something the locals have taken for ages. This is considered one of the more potent strains of Kratom.
The effects of Kratom consumption may vary significantly from person to person. A significant factor in determining the type of experience someone has with Kratom could be the dosage size. For instance, at lower doses, Kratom users have reported stimulant-like side effects such as increased energy and alertness, decreased appetite, and heightened libido. On the other hand, side effects of Kratom at moderate-to-high doses may include pain reduction, drowsiness, sleepiness or even a euphoric high. So the amount of Kratom taken may impact a person’s ability to get to sleep.
It is widely reported that when you sleep, you can lose up to a pound of water through sweat and sweating. While Kratom has many benefits, it also dehydrates you. So if you plan to use Kratom as a sleep aid, ensure you hydrate more than usual! It would be best to incorporate a glass of water before bed and when you wake up. Staying hydrated is one of the most important and healthy things you can do for your body. In addition, water or liquids in the form of teas or sports drinks should be incorporated throughout the day – particularly if you use Kratom.
Possible benefits of Kratom
At one time or another, Kratom has been said to help with problems like anxiety and chronic pain. As one might imagine, people who experience less stress and pain relief probably have a much better chance of getting a solid eight hours of sleep every night. But, of course, Kratom has a wide range of reported benefits and side effects –– so research individual strains before making a purchase decision.
