When it comes to living life, your attitude plays the part in your viewpoint to life and how you react to everything it throws at you. Whether you believe in God, Mother Nature, or the natural process of evolution, one thing is very clear…..nature provides us with the precise tools we need to survive as human beings. From lavender that helps us destress to Oregano and it’s cancer fighting benefits, nature is here to assist us when we need it—and for all various reasons.
If you haven’t heard yet, Mitragyna speciosa (#Kratom) is a tropical evergreen tree in the coffee family native to Southeast Asia. M. speciosa is indigenous to Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, and Papua New Guinea, where it has been used in traditional medicines since at least the nineteenth century, if not longer. Much like marijuana, kratom provides a variety of benefits for a consumer. It can help with pain, fatigue, insomnia, poor immune system, anxiety and depression. It is natural, not chemical, so it is not something that will magically make everything all better. It is a natural supplement that will help and might relief certain symptoms you may be dealing with. Take Melatonin for example…. It helps many relax and get good sleep; but comparing it to Ambien would be dumb. It doesn’t come close because it’s an herb, it’s from nature. Same goes with kratom.
Let’s focus on mood though in this article. What might kratom do for you to help you lift your mood and ease depression symptoms naturally and subtly? Here are 4 strains that might be able to help:
Power Green (Green Malay) is a renowned strain for helping uplift your spirits, naturally. It is among the strongest Kratom strains and is the best for beginners to use. Moreover, it can be used at any time without fearing any rough effects. This strain can also provide additional effects to brighten the day. When consumed moderately, it will act as a mood booster and energizer during the first hour. The results gradually become more relaxing during the next hour as the stimulating impacts slowly begin to wear off–much like coffee.
Green Dragon (Green Hulu Kapuas)
Not many know about the extraordinary effects of Green Hulu Kapuas. This is because this strain is rare and is quite hard to harvest. Green Hulu Kapuas grow in the deepest parts of Hulu forest that runs along the longest river of Indonesia named Kapuas. The mood lifting effects of this strain are so high that they even surpass the effects usually produced by the red strains. This Kratom species usually soothes the body and relaxes the mind to release stress and tension. The effects are rare for their unique blend and astonishing balance.
Green Hulu Kapuas leaves do not stimulate or sedate the body. They produce mood-lifting effects in moderation.
White Borneo (our Super White)
As the name indicates, White Borneo comes from Borneo, the largest island in the world.
This Kratom strain is different and unique considering its effects and properties. It is impeccable for those who seek overall uplift and serenity. It is the strongest strain within the Borneo family with effects that last even longer that Maeng Da.
White Maeng Da
White Maeng Da is an extremely beneficial strain of Kratom, especially for those who are looking for a break from daily life stressors. White Maeng Da is also known for inducing a state of lightness and extreme happiness. It allows the mind to relax and permits the person to live in the moment. For this reason, this strain is equally effective for combating stress and depression.
But remember, every body is different. What works for one might not work for another. It’s important that you know your body and try out different strains to see what works best. Kratom is not for everyone. Though doctors tend to be skeptics at this time where kratom is being misrepresented in the media (for the most part), it’s important to do your research and consult a physician who knows your health and knows what your body can or cannot handle. Just like caffeine. Not everyone can handle a Monster Energy drink! It is 100% legal and loved by many, but deaths have occurred from drinking a Monster because of a person’s kidneys (etc). SO, as with anything, use caution and KNOW YOUR BODY. As with all things, everything in moderation.
