Kratom can be used in many different ways, and one of the most common ways of taking this powerful herb is through Kratom tea. Taking it as a tea offers a variety of benefits and downsides in comparison to other methods.
Aside from the popular ‘toss and wash’ method of taking Kratom, the tea is relatively quick and easy to prepare for anyone with pretty good results.
Kratom tea is a favorite drink, particularly in Southeast Asia, where it replaced the regular consumption of coffee and tea due to its stimulating, invigorating and energizing capabilities.
This traditional tea is prepared with use of Mitragyna Speciosa leaves, which contains alkaloids known to have sedative and stimulating effects on the mind and body.
When compared with liquid extracts and raw leaf, Kratom tea has its unique benefits. The leaves are known for the potent alkaloids embedded in it. These natural compounds are released much faster when exposed to heat.
By drinking the tea, it reaches the bloodstream more rapidly and has a faster onset of effect. Contrary to what others claim, the original Kratom alkaloids are not destroyed or damaged when exposed to high temperatures.
Compared to ‘toss and wash’ method, Kratom tea offers a slight difference when it comes to the experience. Most Kratom users reported that the tea is more stimulating while the pain relieving effect is a bit reduced.
Also, many claims that the euphoric and mood-boosting effects are enhanced compared to the usual effect of directly taking Kratom powder, especially on an empty stomach. These claims are probably because of the rapid digestion and absorption of Kratom alkaloids.
If you are looking for maximum pain relief and sedation, then this method of preparation may not be the best. But if you are seeking for an increase in energy and enhanced mood, you will significantly benefit from this method. Interestingly, the unpleasant ‘wobbles’ can be avoided with Kratom tea, which is a common side effect when taking Kratom powder straight.
Each person has their preferred way of making Kratom tea. Regardless of the way you make it, it will always bring positive effects to your body.
Below are the top 5 benefits of taking Kratom in tea form:
When it comes to choosing which Kratom tea powder to use, it is essential to know what kind of effect you want. Any powdered Kratom will work, but many people often prefer the red-veined Kratom strain, specifically the Red Bali as it produces a powerful relaxing effect, providing a soothing, comforting feeling that will make you forget your worries.
If you want an opposite effect – that is, a strong kick on your energy level, then Maeng Da Kratom powder can do this. The White Vein Kratom can also provide this effect. Aside from the strain, the Kratom effects that you can experience will also depend on the dosage you use and your taste. Still, it is necessary to experiment on various strain to discover the right one for you.
