·    Bali Kratom:

An analgesic or pain-relieving properties of Kratom are mainly due to its composition which comprises pain-relieving alkaloid 7-hydroxymitragynine and the molecular contents of 7-hydroxymitragynine are quite high in the Bali Kratom strains. Bali Kratom is a healthy blend of Borneo and Sumatra strains and found its origin in the Bali region of Indonesia, thus got its name from there.

Among all of these, Red Bali Kratom Strain is the most potent strain and has the ability to provide pain relief for continuous 3 – 7 hours. This potent strain offers swift relief and because of its sedating effects, it’s recommended to take prior to going to sleep. Some people report a mild side-effect of using the Red Bali Kratom which is wobbling and this can be avoided by mixing this strong strain with some mild Kratom strain like Green Bali Strain, or by taking it in low or medium doses.

·    Malay Kratom:

If you are eyeing pain relief without any stimulating energy boost, the Malay Kratom is the best for you. As the name suggests, this Kratom strain finds its bases in the jungles of Malaysia. Alkaloid Mitragynine is in lower concentration in the Malay Kratoms and therefore it’s less sedative in nature as compared to the Bali Kratom strains and is preferred for aged people. From mild physical pain to inflammation, whatever is hindering your productivity, Malay Kratom will treat them all.

Elderly people who just want pain relief they are experiencing due to arthritis or joint stiffness can try this Kratom Strain as it will efficiently relieve the pain without providing some aggregated levels of energy or sedating them.

·    Maeng Da Kratom:

Maeng Da Kratom is one of the most popular and potent Kratoms currently available in the market. What makes it unique is the fact that this Kratom does not occur naturally but has been specifically bred in the way to possess high concentrations of pain-relieving alkaloids i-e Mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine.

Maeng Da Kratom has an edge over the Bali Kratom in the way that although they both possess high concentrations of pain-relieving alkaloids Bali Kratom is highly sedative in nature, therefore they can’t be taken during the day. However, Maeng Da is less sedating and more energy stimulating in nature, therefore they can easily be taken during the daytime.  Maeng Da Kratom is sedative only at high doses. Among all the three veins that are available of the Maeng Da, Red Vein Maeng Da is the most powerful Kratom strain and is beneficial in relieving chronic pain caused due to rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, pain due to cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome or chronic back pain.

Kratom for Pain Management:

Kratoms have been found to be beneficial in managing pain, no matter whether it’s physiological pain or psychological pain. Physical pain such as joint pain, chronic back pain, or inflammation is a result of some physical disease whereas psychological pain will end up causing anxiety, stress, depression, and distress. Both sorts of pain are exhausting and will leave you incapable of performing daily life functioning. In such situations, Kratom has found to be effective in providing relief from both chronic physical pain and inflammation and anxiety and depression. 

Mitragynine is found to be the active ingredient in the Kratom. This alkaloid imitates the effect of the opioid in the brain and binds to the similar opioid receptors in the brain, reduces the activity of the pain receptors thus relieving the pain. The same action contributes to the anxiolytic and antidepressant properties of the Kratom which in turn improves the general mood and well being of the user by relieving the anxiety and depression.

Continuous stress will have an effect on the serotonin and dopamine levels in the blood, as they both are responsible for the feelings of well-being and happiness, therefore stress will make you feel low and melancholic. However, the active alkaloids in the Kratom will attach to the opioid receptors in the brain which in turn will increase the release of dopamine and serotonin hormones making you feel motivated, happy and energetic.

Other notable effects of the Kratom include appetite-suppressing effect, anti-inflammatory effect, and immunity-enhancing property; these together will provide exceptional health benefits. People struggling with obesity can benefit from their appetite-suppressing property and control their weight. Those suffering from inflammation caused due to rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis should take Kratom strains as apart from relieving the chronic pain, they are also beneficial in treating the inflammation.
