Pain is one of the major factors associated with disability. Many people across the world suffer from some kind of chronic pain and related ailments. According to the Centre for Disease Control (CDC), in The United States of America alone, doctors write over 250 painkillers per year. So if pain is such a chronic problem, there is bound to be allopathic solutions. But allopathy is not without its side effects. So people have been looking into more natural effective ways to treat pain, and a lot of people have found their remedy in Kratom.


Kratom is a South East Asian herb that is known for its psychotherapeutic properties. It has myriad applications, and a lot of studies indicate that it is quite effective as a painkilling agent. Pain can be both physical and emotional. The advantage of kratom is that it eases both types of pain simultaneously. It is not just physical pain that can cause dangerous problems, mental pain can drive people insane if not treated effectively and timely.


Some of the ways kratom helps is the following:

  • Reducing anxiety due to social imbalances
  • Overthinking related mental stress and illness
  • Mild or serious physical and mental trauma
  • Helping to control drug or alcohol abuse
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Irritable bowel movements
  • Physical pain due to any reason
  • Reflex sympathetic syndrome
  • Lupus or related autoimmune diseases
  • Ehlers Danlos Syndrome
  • Complex regional pain syndrome


The operation of kratom is unlike most allopathic solutions to pain. In allopathy, anaesthetics are given to palliate the pain and not make it go away. Kratom on the other hand, releases the person of their pain, making it go away. Since there are hardly any side effects recorded for kratom, even in the long term, there is literally no harm in trying kratom if you are suffering from chronic pain.


How to Decide What Strain of Kratom To Choose


Different strains of kratom affect different people differently. However, the analysis of what kind of kratom suits you is actually decided by a lot of other factors. Some of these factors are listed below.


  • Body weight, height, shape etc.
  • Emotional strength : the person’s response to emotional stimuli
  • Physical health of the person
  • Metabolism of the user
  • Lifestyle: Is the user active throughout the day, are they semi active etc.
  • Eating habits
  • Pain management strategies till date
  • Quality of kratom in question


Mostly, red vein kratom is preferred by beginners because it has zero side effects and is very similar to analgesics and anesthetics. the important part is that it does not cause dizziness, confusion, drowsiness, etc.


Best Kratom Strains For Pain Management


  • Maeng Da Kratom


Considered the most powerful variant of kratom currently available, Maeng Da Kratom is the most preferred for pain relief and management among kratom users in the world. It is extremely rich in a particular combination of alkaloids mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. This combination makes the user stimulated rather than sedated and therefore can be used even during daytime. It has very strong analgesic properties and can be used to treat joint pain, muscle pain, etc. Mitragynine is known to be a mood booster and can be very good in uplifting your mood. So in short, Maeng Da Kratom can boost both your mental and physical health. However taking higher levels of kratom might cause an opposite effect and induce drowsiness, unconsciousness and whatnot.

Red Bali Kratom is found in parts of Bali Indonesia and is a very good relaxing agent. This is considered one of the purest forms of kratom and is quite popular in and around Bali, if not the entire world. It is very popular for its high energizing power and medical uses.

  • White Borneo Kratom

  • Red Horn Kratom


Red Horn kratom gets its name from the leaves of this particular strain of kratom. The tips of the leaves of the kratom in question are supposedly shaped like the horns of a dragon.
