Kratom and Seasonal Allergies


Kratom and Seasonal Allergies

March 20, 2021

Hay fever, puffy eyes, and runny noses. You know the annoying symptoms many get during spring, especially in Central Texas where allergies are a Regular Guest ®. The most common way of treating seasonal allergies is using antihistamines or other types of over-the-counter drugs that reduce symptoms. Having said that, consider trying kratom before you run to your nearest pharmacy. Kratom- an all-natural supplement that may ease the discomfort associated with seasonal allergies!

Note: If you’ve found this page due to an allergic reaction to kratom, this article is not for you nor are we medical professionals. Reach out to a doctor should symptoms persist or be worrisome, and if you are experiencing a severe allergic reaction, call 911. 

How does kratom help with spring allergies?


Given kratom’s long list of benefits, it’s no surprise it might help relieve the pesky symptoms of spring allergies. Why? Because of the alkaloids present inside of it. 


Kratom abounds with mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine, the predominant alkaloids. These alkaloids produce a mildly sedating and analgesic effect. That could explain why many kratom users find this plant to be really helpful in treating allergies.

There are many other chemical compounds inside kratom that help make this plant what it is, here are a few of them:


  • Epicatechin – this flavonoid is also found in dark chocolate and has an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial effect, all of which help tremendously with allergies;


  • Ajmalicine – an alkaloid that is used as an antihypertensive remedy and also helps control the number of platelets produced by the body. Platelets are tiny cells that stick together and form blood clots. When we experience an allergic reaction, the amount of platelets in the body increases rapidly. By helping control platelet creation, this alkaloid present inside kratom may help with allergic reactions;


  • Speciogynine – severe allergic reactions may cause muscle spasms, and this alkaloid acts as a smooth muscle relaxer (antispasmodic effect).


Although there are about 40 alkaloids in kratom, these are the only ones that appear to help manage allergy symptoms in individuals. These alkaloids all work together to control how our body reacts to minor and severe allergic reactions. There’s also a theory that kratom, when ingested, causes histamine release. Over time, this helps the body become more tolerant to other histamines that may cause spring allergies. However, we feel the need to mention that everyone is different and, therefore, might react differently to kratom. Some people find that kratom is excellent for dealing with allergies, and others don’t exactly notice any difference after ingesting it – this is perfectly normal! What’s most important is that you listen to your body and how it reacts.

Kratom and Antihistamines


If you still believe that using over-the-counter drugs (antihistamines) will help you get back on your feet, that’s absolutely fine! But if you are considering taking kratom to treat spring allergies, then you should probably be mindful about using them together.


Antihistamines generally have the tendency to be sedating – if you’ve taken antihistamines at some point, you probably already know this common ‘side effect’. Since kratom, especially red vein kratom, also has a mildly sedating effect, combining them together could cause an unpleasant reaction and drowsiness, which is not exactly what we’re looking for when we want to eliminate allergy symptoms. 


Small doses of both antihistamines and kratom generally don’t appear to be unsafe and don’t cause any side effects. Still, you should always check the labels and speak to a doctor beforehand. 

Our Founder/CEO Kemal Whyte also swears by kratom for his seasonal allergies. We’re not medical professionals and this isn’t medical advice, merely our experience with the subject. Kemal has used kratom for years when allergy symptoms kick up, and says he notices a decrease in congestion after using kratom. 

Final Thoughts


All things considered, kratom may have the potential to help with allergic reactions caused by irritants due to its unique alkaloid content, but these are only the opinions of kratom users worldwide. All the points mentioned above remain theories that need to be backed up by scientific research to be deemed appropriate.
