For thousands of years, the natives in various countries of South East Asia where the plant is found, Kratom has been used for boosting energy levels. The herb grows indigenously in these areas and the people chewed on the leaves of this Mitragyna Speciosa tree for boosting their energy, which allowed them to complete their daily work with ease. Today, Kratom is still widely used due to the stimulating effects it has to offer as well as the medicinal properties of the herb. These days, Kratom is being used as a supplement for dealing with opiate addiction and for suppressing and relieving pain. In fact, the plant has been found useful for dealing with a wide array of health problems.
However, it is essential to bear in mind that not all Kratom strains can have the same impact. You need to understand the differences between the strains as Kratom can be found in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and numerous other countries and its properties can vary accordingly. If you are looking for one that can boost your energy levels, you need to opt for the Kratom strains that have the strongest stimulating effects. Here are some of the best ones to consider:
- Maeng Da
One of the most popular Kratom strains that has the most stimulating and strongest effects is Maeng Da. You can enjoy a high energy boost with this strain and it also comprises of alkaloids that help with pain management. As it is very powerful, it is highly recommended for increasing your energy levels if you are feeling very down. But, it can also lead to euphoria and if you don’t want that strong an effect, you can go with the other less powerful strains.
Perhaps, one of the best Kratom strains for boosting energy is the Thai one. This is mostly because it has a very high level of the alkaloid called mitragynine, which is responsible for the energetic effects of this herbal remedy. As far as simulation effects are concerned, Thai Kratom strains are similar to Maeng Da, but it is not as powerful for pain relief. Therefore, it is chosen by those who are only looking for increasing their energy levels and not more. The green vein and white vein versions are the best choice in Thai Kratom for boosting energy and red vein is better for relieving pain.
This particular Kratom strain has only recently gained popularity even though it has been around for a while. Vietnam Kraton is also similar to Maeng Da in the way that the line between stimulation and sedation is not very defined, but recent use has shown that it is more stimulating as a whole. It has the ability of providing a lucid mental energy rather than the enthusiastic effects of Thai.
If you are using a strain that has a sedating effect as well, it is best to take it in low dosage so you are able to enjoy the simulating benefits.
