The effects of kratom vary depending on a few different things: the kind of Kratom taken and the amount of kratom taken.
In general, White Veins are energizing, Green Veins are euphoric, and Red Veins are sedating and relaxing.
That being said, the amount of kratom that you take can also impact what effects you feel. Low doses tend to be more energizing and focusing, while larger doses tend to be a bit sedating.
If you’re looking for a specific effect from kratom, it’s important to use a strain and an amount that will provide the desired properties. For example, if you’re hoping to take kratom for energy, be sure to use a White Vein or a Green Vein and take a low to moderate dose. If you’re hoping to take kratom for relaxation, be sure to use a Red Vein and take a moderate to high dose (but be sure not to overdo it!).
What to expect from…
Energizing Kratom- Feel more alert, awake, and energized. Increased motivation and desire to accomplish tasks.
Euphoric Kratom- Feel positive, talkative, and sociable.
Sedating Kratom- Feel very relaxed and calm. Most people describe sedating kratom as highly pleasant. You may notice less pain and increased sleepiness.
How Long Do the Effects Last?
Typically, the effects of kratom last roughly 4-6 hours. This could be different based on metabolism, the way you took kratom, or if you had an empty stomach.
How Long Until Kratom Kicks In?
When taking kratom on an empty stomach, effects are typically noticeable in 20-30 minutes. If you have food in your stomach, it could take 45-60 minutes for kratom to kick in fully.
