Everybody, every day finds ways to get an energy boost so to fulfill a difficult task, or just to start their morning and being productive rather than drowsy at work. Everybody is used to coffee and cigarettes giving the energy boost they need, but nevertheless, a single cup of coffee with a cigarette cannot give you energy for the whole day and you get to feel tired after some hours of working either physically or mentally; and also you won’t have the chance to drink coffee whenever you like to, due to the fact you will be busy the whole, or most of the day.
Yet a great way of stimulating yourself is Kratom; in Indonesia and Philippines the working class chewed its leaves and could be working energetically for long hours! It is amazing how these people had the energy boost leaf with them to chew whenever they want, plus they enjoyed its great stimulating and tiredness relieving effect!
The chemistry behind a lot of energy
Mitragyna Speciosa is a stimulant at low doses, used traditionally to combat work fatigue. Classified under the coffee family Rubiaceae, M. Speciosa also has stimulant properties. The most important alkaloid in Kratom- mitragynine actually behaves like an adrenergic receptor agonist. What does that mean? Adrenergic receptors are the parts (receptors) of our nervous system that answer for our motor function signaling and the send the signals to keep us pumped up and ready to work. So by being the agonist, means it help keep the signal strong; also mitragynine relieves pain by slowing down or blocking pain signaling, so the effect is triple and you get:
- An energizing effect
- A pain-relieving effect which will boost your energy effect
- A tiredness management effect
What are the best types and doses?
The preferred types are green vein strains, but nevertheless, you can use red ones. Some preferable types are:
- Green Borneo
- Green Malay
- Maeng Da
These offer well-balanced effect, where it relieves pain and offers an energetic effect. A very good idea is to use white vein Kratom as well, as its strongest effects are energetic and nootropic (memory enhancing):
- White Borneo
- White Indo
- White Thai
You are also welcome to use Red vein, like red Bali, but in very low doses.
The secret of an energetic dose is a low dose, as it is a fact that Kratom acts like an energetic in low doses and as a sedative at medium to high doses. For green and white vein you can use low to medium doses (as they offer mostly energetic effect as described above), from 1 to 5 gr. If you intend to use red vein strains it’s better to keep the doses very low and use from 1-3gr.
Strength and conditions
The fact is that green and white vein strains have mild and more balanced effects than Red vein, so they are a perfect choice for the next conditions:
- Slight pain
- Energy deficiency
Thai and Malay workers chewed their leaves for exactly these reasons and it has proved its effects over many years. So any tiredness and slight pain of any reason will go away and you will feel very strong and ready for action.
