KRATOM CAN GET YOU HIGH AF!!!
Kratom has been in use for thousands of years throughout the world. In its native Southeast Asia, it has long been enjoyed as a stimulant, but it didn't blow up in the Western world until the turn of the century.
Kratom took the Western world by storm somewhere around 2005 and has been steadily earning word of mouth ever since. Many first-time users want to know, is the hype true? Can kratom get you high like opiates?
The answer is yes! Kratom is a worthy alternative to opiates, but it doesn't stop there. Taken in a range of dosages, kratom can get you high as f**k and here we will take a closer look at exactly how it works.

WHERE DOES THE KRATOM HIGH COME FROM?
As I mentioned before, kratom has been used in Thailand and other parts of Southeast Asia for ages. It was widely used among factory workers and other heavy laborers for its analgesic properties. In certain doses, kratom can act as a natural pain killer.
The active alkaloids in kratom are what gives it its pain killing ability, not to mention its stimulating and, alternately, sedating effects. The chief alkaloid Mitragynine is the alkaloid that is believed to be responsible for its capacity for offering widespread pain relief.
Kratom is known to induce a sense of calm and well being while simultaneously alleviating stress. It is also a viable sleep aid that has helped many people suffering from night shift work disorder and/or insomnia.
The other active alkaloid in most kratom strains is 7-hydroxymitragynine which binds to brain receptors, altering our consciousness as well as our mood. This is what makes kratom a valuable mood-enhancement tool.
SUBJECTIVE KRATOM EFFECTS
Kratom users have reported improved focus, increased concentration, optimism, joy and euphoria. The euphoria that kratom can instill accounts for its reputation as an herb that can get you high.
The psychoactive effects of kratom can also result in increased sociability and talkativeness, making it the perfect all-natural alternative to drugs like Molly and ecstasy. All too often, club kids and partygoers drop “e” or roll on Molly that they purchased from some shady street dealer.
These people have no idea what they are getting and invariably the MDMA in their ecstasy is cut with dangerous narcotics like heroin, Fentanyl, methamphetamine or cocaine. Fortunately, these people no longer have to risk their lives with street concoctions because kratom offers similar effects in an organic, raw kratom powder. Remember, when you get top shelf kratom, you know exactly what you're going to get. No fillers. No additives. No B.S.
BEST KRATOM FOR OPIATE HIGH
Taken in larger doses, kratom can mimic the effects of opiates and opioids, offering the user a clean sedative experience. The sedating effects of kratom typically occur when taking 6-8 grams of kratom at one time.
The effects of kratom depend largely on several factors including your weight, physiological makeup and sensitivity to opiate-like substances. For those with an opiate tolerance, you may want to take 8-10 grams of kratom as a single dose.
It is important to note that we do NOT recommend users dose with kratom more than once per day as tolerance and addiction can become a concern and frequent large doses can result in kratom hangover or even overdose.
GETTING TURNT UP ON KRATOM
While it is ill-advised to take extremely large doses of kratom, many users have reported incredible experiences taking kratom in large quantities. In fact, one user over at drugs-forum.com said he took 80 grams of kratom and had an insane kratom experience.
“The buzz came on quickly,” he said. “...each gulp provided a small but quick feeling of stimulation, followed by the usual opiate feeling. The drink took about 45 minutes to get down and before the drink was finnished [sic] I was feeling pretty opiated.
“The high was very comparable to a dirty but strong opiate high. The effects lasted from 8:00 to when I went to sleep at 2:30.”
This same user warns of the fallout from taking so much kratom in one dose. “The night was a bit blury [sic],” he says. “And I only remember some significant points of the night. The morning however was hell. There were obvious withdrawl symptons including nausea, vertigo, intense sweating and a terrible feeling of being drained of energy.”
A user on Erowid wrote of the intense, blissful euphoria experienced after taking a 6 gram dose of kratom. And this is where it is imperative that users realize the potency of quality kratom. Unlike other substances that get you higher and higher the more you take them, kratom tends to work best in moderate dosages.
As a matter of fact, some users have even suggested that users who brag about insane highs in excess of 10 grams are likely experiencing a placebo effect. One user on Reddit had this to say about kratom dosages: “I know I get crazy stomach aches at around 25 grams. Some people claim they feel that way at as little as 5 grams.
“I don't know how I could handle 40 or more grams, unless the Kratom was just poor quality.”
GREATEST KRATOM STRAINS FOR SEDATIVE EFFECTS
There are several kratom strains and each of them is different from the next. Many people suffering from anxiety disorders have turned to kratom for its sedating effect. The strains that are most popular for this purpose include Green Vein Borneo, Indo, Red Vein Kratom, Maeng Da and White Vein Kratom.
BEST KRATOM FOR STIMULANT EFFECTS
The Mitragyna speciosa (kratom) plant is a member of the coffee family and, as such, it can be used as a powerful natural stimulant. For those looking for a significant uptake in energy levels and pain relief, Thai kratom is your go-to kratom strain.
Other strains that can offer stimulant effects include Green Malaysian, Vietnam kratom and Red Vein Maeng Da.
Thai is at the top of the heap because of its characteristic stimulation, offering users clean energy without the side effects typical of things like caffeine and Taurine.
KRATOM USER EXPERIENCES
One first-time user wrote about a wonderful first-time experience with kratom. “I weighed out 5 grams of the powder,” he writes. “And mixed it into a chocolate peanut butter protein shake.
“Within 45 minutes I started feeling stoned. Sort of like the lingering feeling of a generous dab of some nice indica. After an hour, I started getting those familiar waves of warmth and comfort that opiates give - my mind was surprisingly clear and almost stimulated, yet my entire body felt like a goddess was massaging me.”
He goes on to note the euphoric buzz of the kratom and the lack of side effects like nausea or constipation. He adds, “All in all, at less than $1/dose, I'd rate Kratom a SOLID 10/10.”
This speaks to the innocuousness and power of kratom as a natural stimulant. Not only does it have minimal side effects but it can get you high at very low doses.
