by Admin OJS (2018-11-22)

Living with chronic aches and pain can really be a true nightmare. Not only will these aches and pains have a negative effect on your health, but also it will drag down your mood and productivity.


Just the smallest task will become so much harder and take twice as long. In the past the only option you had to dealing with these pains were pharmaceutical painkillers. Thankfully, that is no longer the case. Kratom is an all-natural herbal extract with analgesic properties that will enhance you overall quality of life.

 How Does Kratom Block Pain In The Body?


Kratom is widely known for its painkilling effects and it really is easy to explain why the substance is so effective at battling pain. However, in order to truly understand how Kratom work within the body, you need to learn more about its chemical makeup.


 When you are injured from a stubbed toe or even a broken bone all that damage sends a message to your central nervous system and the brain through receptors and nerves. This will in turn cause the body to feel pain and release delta, kappa and MU opioid receptors to decrease the pain.


 Kratom is full of different compounds, but it really is two compounds that shine when it comes to producing painkilling effects.


 These two compounds are mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. Both of these compounds are extremely similar to the endorphins that are released when you partake in activities like running.


 When they are released within the body they will bind to the delta and MU opioid receptors in the brain and block out pain.




What Strains Will Provide The Best Pain Relief?

 It is important to know that no two strains of Kratom are created equal. In fact, some strains will provide stimulating and energetic effects, while other strains will provide the pain relief that you are seeking.


Before buying kratom online, I recommend you to check out some reviews from kratom experts. Its also a good idea to buy kratom variety packs, so you can experiment with different strains without spending much money.


So, which are the best strains for pain management and what do they have to offer?


  • The Malay Strain – When it comes to pain relief many people opt for the Green Malay strain. This is because this specific strain provides potent pain relieving properties. However, one of the most impressive things about this strain is that it provides pain relief without sedating the user. This makes this strain perfect for morning and midday use. Most analgesic strains are accompanied by sedating effects.
  • The Borneo Strain – The Borneo strain is growing in popularity and this is because it contains high amounts of both mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. With such high amounts of both of these compounds, the Borneo is perfect for chronic pain, joint and muscle pains and inflammation. Since both compounds are so highly present in this substance, you really have to be careful with the dosage. A little can go a long way with this strain. Too much and you might be dealing with some unwanted side effects.
  • The Maeng Da Strain – If you look up the Maeng Da strain, you will see that most people are referring to this strain as the ultimate Kratom strain. And, this is because it is one of the strongest and most euphoric strains available on the market. It is these qualities that make this strain perfect for relieving pain and enhancing the mood at the same time.
