What is stem and vein?
Stem & Vein kratom, as the name implies, is made from the left over stems and veins that have been removed from the kratom leaf. The stems and veins are ground up into a fine powder and can be used just like regular kratom for various benefits.
What are the benefits of stem & vein?
The benefits of kratom specifically derive from the alkaloids in the plant acting on the opioid receptors in your brain. Over time, those receptors can build up a tolerance and thus lessening the effects. They get “used to the alkaloids”. The result is that you will gradually start to need more and more kratom to feel the effects. Taking more kratom to fix the problem would be in fact creating a bigger problem: overdose. Taking too much of kratom can cause you to throw up, get your heart beating too fast, etc. Though there is not a single death reported from kratom alone, it is best not to test that statistic. This is where Stem and Vein comes into play and can be very beneficial.
Other than making sure you are switching up your kratom batch and avoiding not taking the same batch, the same strain from the SAME vendor (this will increase your chances of creating a tolerance for kratom fast), stem and vein can be the next best thing to help:
First, you will have to take more stem and vein in order to get the effects. Take the stem and vein kratom for anywhere between three to five days consecutively. You shouldn’t take any other kratom during this time. You’ll notice the effects are similar to regular kratom. It’s a moderate strain and it’s more on the feel-good, calming side rather than energizing. One difference is that the effects won’t last as long as regular kratom does. Rather than four to six hours, you may only notice the kratom effect for an hour or two. After the three to five days have passed you can go back to your regular kratom rotation. You should notice that your tolerance kratom has now been lowered significantly.
Its best if you implement this routine into your schedule when it comes to kratom. Follow the above process every three months. Try to take a whole week off, using only stem and vein. You SHOULD notice a significant difference, lowering your tolerance levels back to the basics again.
Something to also note is that the stems and veins of the tree provide more nutrients to the user, which is something that the leaves sometimes do not provide when they are cured and dried.
