What Does Kratom Feel Like?

Kratom is known for its powerful medicinal properties. You already know that this life-changing plant can dramatically improve your health and happiness. But – what does kratom feel like?

In our years of experience helping individuals like you harness the power of kratom, one of the most common questions we receive here at Kingdom Kratom is, what does it feel like? So, we’ve put together a comprehensive guide so you can know what to expect when taking kratom.

Kratom produces various effects based on the vein, the amount taken, and other individual factors. If you’re new to kratom, you might want a deeper understanding of what it feels like before you embark on your journey. So, let’s not waste any more time. Depending on how potent the kratom is, the way it’s processed, and how much kratom you take, the effects of kratom you feel will differ. It’s helpful to separate the effects you might feel into two main categories – stimulant and relaxation. 

Stimulant-like effects

At a low dose and depending on the strain, kratom tends to create stimulant-like effects. White and Green strains will be more helpful for energy and focus. Stimulants increase catecholamine levels, a family of brain chemicals that includes dopamine and norepinephrine. By increasing the amount of these chemicals being released in the brain, a small amount of kratom is similar to other stimulant-like products like Adderall. Increased energy and alertness, an elevated mood, a faster heart rate, and potentially a suppressed appetite can be expected. This is because the rate of metabolism increases alongside these stimulant-like neurological pathways. 

As such, kratom and working out go hand in hand. People who work a nine-to-five job or are entrepreneurs building a company love using kratom to ramp up their focus, too. To learn more, read our article covering the best kratom for energy/motivation. For now, though, let’s talk about the opposite effect other strains provide. 

Relaxing and soothing effects

Opioids are known to release chemicals that relax the body. At the same time, quite a different substance, red strains of kratom, are known to be soothing and relaxing. Moderate to high amounts of kratom release chemicals that change the way your brain and nervous system identify pain, dulling aches and soothing the brain receptors. 

If you take a medium to large dose of kratom, you can expect to experience relief from discomfort, a sense of calmness, sleepiness, a lowered heart rate, and relaxation. Learn more in our article on the best kratom for relaxation or the best kratom for soothing aches

What do specific strains feel like?

While kratom can generally be lumped into one of two categories – uplifting vs relaxing – it’s not always black and white. So, what does kratom feel like based on the specific strain? Kratom feels differently depending on the strain and vein you consume. Different strains of kratom come from the various locations where it’s grown. Years of growth in a particular climate will inevitably affect the kratom and, therefore, the effects felt from consuming it. The shared feelings across all strains and veins are either stimulant-like or soothing.

Read below about the differences that appear across the kratom varieties: 

Thai Kratom

Thai Kratom is one of the most popular strains of kratom due to its unique, potent properties. Thai kratom is similar to other green strains but differs in origin. Green and White Thai Kratom may produce feelings of bliss. Red Thai Kratom has also been reported to help reduce feelings of aches and other discomforts.

Maeng Da Kratom

Maeng Da Kratom is another one of the more potent strains of kratom available, usually a blend of what the farmers think are the most potent leaves. It loosely translates to “pimp’s grade” in Thai. In low doses, Maeng Da may have stimulant effects and is thought to boost mood and reduce feelings of anxiety. In higher doses, Maeng Da can be very calming, which can also help control feelings of anxiety and reduce aches and discomfort due to injury or chronic issues.

Chocolate Kratom

Chocolate Kratom is a fermented red kratom strain that is known for its strong sedative and analgesic effects. 

Chocolate Kratom was named because it is similar in color to dark chocolate but does not contain cocoa products.  

Bali Kratom

Bali kratom is reported to be one of the strongest for soothing and relief of aches. Someone taking kratom for the first time can, therefore, expect to feel euphoria, mellowness, and a heightened sense of well-being.

Indo Kratom

Indo Kratom is one of the most versatile strains and provides almost immediate effects, unlike other strains. Indo-Kratom may produce feelings of relaxation and peacefulness while also containing mood-boosting qualities. This effect means it may also help with concentration. 

Borneo Kratom

Borneo Kratom is similar to Bali Kratom but is grown in Borneo, making it slightly different. This strain of kratom is considered one of the most relaxing strains and has been reported to evoke feelings of sedation and blissful sensations. This strain can offer powerful relief for chronic pain issues.

Malay Kratom

Imagine feeling invigorated and alert yet entirely at ease in your surroundings. This feeling is what you can expect from Malay Kratom. Malay Kratom offers a unique blend of energy-boosting and mood-enhancing effects, perfect for those seeking a clear-headed and focused experience. It’s one of the most well-rounded strains available.
