Kratopia Red Borneo Kratom
The Red Borneo Kratom is ideally suited as an energizing tea. It has a characteristic smell and a soft taste. The effect is maintained for a long time. This red kratom has a relatively high amount of psychoactive alkaloids. As a result, the effect is powerful and a search for a personal dosage is desirable.
More information about Red Borneo Kratom
Residents of Kalimantan, the Indonesian part of Borneo, are enthusiastic users of their kratom. They even call it 'the heavenly leaves of Borneo'. For them it is an herb against all kinds of ailments. Looking back, they now consider the leaves a traditional medicine. Today they use kratom in all kinds of forms. The leaves, for example, as a cigarette.
But modern Kalimantans mainly use it as a tea for extra energy. This kratom is particularly suitable for this. It is made from leaves that have been allowed to dry a little longer. This was followed by a special treatment with a light fermentation.
Some users report that drinking tea or water with a little of this red Borneo kratom helps with fatigue. It can also relieve a tickly cough. For this kratom, as with all kratom, too high a dose can lead to side effects and habituation.
Use: Prepare a cup of tea from this herbal preparation by dissolving 4 to 5 grams in boiled water 70 – 95 degrees. Recommended time to draw is between 3 to 5 minutes. The tea does not need to be filtered, everything can be consumed.
Sale and use under the age of 18 not permitted. Keep out of reach of children. Do not use in case of high or low blood pressure, heart and/or lung complaints, diabetes, pregnancy, when using medication, drugs or alcohol.
Recommended dosage: 4 to 5 grams
In addition to your own body weight and sensitivity, the dosage also depends a lot on the strength of the kratom. Normally, 5-10 grams of dried leaves should be enough for inexperienced users. The dosage can be slightly lower with kratom powder, which is usually stronger than regular leaves (3-5 grams). The same goes for extract. Kratom is not addictive when used responsibly and no more than once or twice a month. More experienced users will feel the need to increase the dosage after some time.
Kratom in higher doses tends to have sedative effects, regardless of which strain is used.
Mild Effect: <3 grams
Fair/Good Effect: >3-5
Strong Effect: > 5-6 grams
Kratom has a strong effect on your mood and energy. It reduces fears, while describing the feeling as happy, strong and active, with a calm mind and a strong will to work. Thai workers use it to get through the working day. The effects are felt after 5 to 10 minutes and can last for several hours.
Most people call the effects stimulating and euphoric at a low dose and sedative at a higher dose. This can probably be explained by the fact that small amounts of mitragynine stimulate the delta opiate receptors, but as the dose increases, the mu-opiate receptors are increasingly stimulated.
Although the main alkaloids in kratom are related to psychedelic substances, kratom does not appear to have psychedelic effects. The main effects are similar to those of opiates: analgesic and cough suppressant, but also narcotic and euphoric. These effects are approximately comparable in strength to codeine.
Some sources claim that kratom, like other opiates, increases sexual desire in women and can reduce erection problems in men. The positive effect of mitragynine on mood and a reduction in anxiety are probably responsible for this. Other effects of mitragynine include decreased muscle tone, local anesthesia and central nervous system depression.
Direct negative effects can include dry mouth, increased urination, decreased appetite and constipation. Unlike opiates, mitragynine usually does not cause nausea or vomiting. Intensive use can result in a mild form of lethargy.
Kratom is not a medicine, but it has a positive effect on things like:
– Improved concentration
– Energy shortage
– Pain relief
– Reduction of “craving” in addictions
