More and more people are using kratom for energy and euphoria. People are finding that it can help with energy levels through the day, and also can create euphoric effects similar to an opiate, which can replace both opiates, and other substances such as alcohol.
Choosing the best kratom for energy and euphoria is not simply a case of naming the best strain, because different strains lift energy, while others are euphoric, while others are more sedative.
On top of that, people react to kratom differently, meaning that a different strain, vein color and dose will deliver a different feeling depending on the person. However, certain types of kratom are more closely linked with increased mood and energy.
So let’s look at what is generally accepted as the best kratom for energy and euphoria, and what the dose required to achieve these effects normally is.
Why Is Kratom Good For Energy And Euphoria?
Kratom has been used for both energy and euphoria in Asia for many centuries. Amongst workers who have physical jobs it has long been used in small doses to produce an energy boost, which has allowed them to work at higher levels of physical efficiency.
In some cases, the combination of energy and euphoria has helped people to push themselves further in things like physical sports, and academic situations.
Kratom contains several alkaloids which mimic the action of opiates, which give both a feeling of energy, can be uplifting, and at higher doses, and among certain strains, sedative.
The lower doses are more linked to increased energy and euphoria, and certain strains of kratom are better for producing these effects, while others are known to not produce these feelings so strongly.
In terms of finding the best kratom for energy and euphoria, it’s all about finding the strain which works for you because each strain and vein color has different levels and types of active alkaloids.
Maeng Da is generally recognized as the strain that has the highest number and concentration of the alkaloids that create both of these effects, however as we will now explain this is not the whole story.
The Best Kratom For Energy
When it comes to finding which kratom is best for energy levels in you, there are several strains of kratom to consider:
- Thai kratom
- Maeng Da kratom
- Green Malay
When looking at kratom strains generally, you should be aware that Red Borneo, Bali and Indo kratom are more closely associated with calming and peaceful effects, so shouldn’t be considered for energy or euphoria.
From the three strains most suitable for raising energy levels, Maeng Da is often seen as the best kratom strain to use. If purchased from a good source, it is generally seen as the strongest kratom, containing the widest range and depth of alkaloids.
Thai kratom strains are renowned for their having energizing and stimulating properties, both in relation to energy levels and euphoria.
Thai kratom comes in three vein colors, green, white and red. Red Thai is most used for pain relief, so it’s the green and white veined Thai kratom that you should consider for raising energy levels.
Green Malay is also associated with raising energy levels, but it is generally accepted to not have a strong ability that Maeng Da and Thai does at normal dosage levels.
However, effects are longer lasting, which is why people choose the gentler but longer effects of using Green Malay to boost their energy levels through the day, rather than for a couple of hours.
The Best Kratom For Euphoria
When considering the best kratom for euphoria, a lot of it is about the dose. Most kratom strains produce an uplifting feeling at lower doses, but once you move into a higher dose, most become sedating.
This sedation can vary between peacefulness and a significant “drop out”.
Most users report that the best kratom strains for euphoria, a feeling of joy and pleasure, are:
- Maeng Da
- White Borneo
- Green Malay
All three of the strains can be the best kratom for euphoria, but again it’s all about the dose. If you would like to experiment with different strains, I recommend this variety pack.
Maeng Da can be powerful as we have already mentioned. At high-dose its effects can be quick to come on, overwhelming and intense. At mid doses it can be energetic and euphoric, but at higher doses it can become deeply sedative.
Green Malay is also euphoric as well as energizing, but again it’s about the dose.
It is not as euphoric as the other strains of kratom mentioned, but its effects are longer lasting, which is why it is famous in Asia as a gentle euphoric.
White Borneo is the strain of kratom which is linked to euphoria strongly. It can produce a strong, deep euphoria that comes on quickly and can last a long time.
At medium doses it can be significant, but euphoria comes at a cost in energy, which is why it’s not recommended for both purposes.
So to summ it up, the best kratom for energy and euphoria is Maeng Da.
What Dose Of Kratom For Energy And Euphoria?
Once you have decided which strain of kratom to experiment with for increasing your energy levels, or getting a euphoric feeling, this time to think about what dose to take.
The quality of the kratom, you as an individual, alongside the type of kratom, and vein color, will all affect the dose taken, so experimentation and understanding general guidelines are key.
Generally people respond to kratom use for energy and euphoria at the following levels:
- A dose of 2-4 grams is accepted as a low dose that will still produce the stimulant effects of kratom. If you have never tried kratom then far better to start at a low dose of around 2 grams. Once you feel the effects, you can always “top up” an hour after taking the initial dose with another couple of grams.If you are going to experiment with Maeng Da, then be careful about raising the dose to high as it is generally accepted as the most potent strain of kratom for stronger effects.
- At a dose of 4-6 grams most people will feel the full effects of kratom in terms of both energy and euphoria, but at the upper level of this dose some people may find effects too.
- Doses above 6 grams are generally seen as high. In some strains this can produce a strong euphoria, but in other strains this can turn to sedation, which is obviously the opposite of euphoric and energizing This is why higher doses are only recommended for sedative and pain relief effects.
