Kratom

Kratom is a tropical tree native to Southeast Asia. Consumption of its leaves produces both stimulant effects (in low doses) and sedative effects (in high doses). Kratom leaves contain two psychoactive ingredients: mitragynine and 7-hydroxymytragynine. Kratom has a long history of use in Southeast Asia, where it is commonly used for pain relief. The leaves are usually crushed and then placed into gel capsules. At Hippie chicks we process the Kratom leaves and extract the 2 active ingredients and blend it in out delicious chocolate, gummies and liquid shots.

Most Common Questions

Kratom may be effective for easing chronic pain, as it works by attaching to opioid receptors. One compound found in kratom, 7-hydroxymitragynine, is 13 times more potent than morphine. Although kratom targets opioid receptors just like morphine and codeine do, it is considered an atypical opioid.

Users of kratom report multiple motivations for use, with the most commonly endorsed reasons being treatment of anxiety or depression, pain relief, treatment of fatigue or low energy, and treatment of chronic pain

While definitive information on the number of American kratom users is tough to pin down, estimates range from between 10 million to possibly upwards of 15 million users per day.

In vivo studies demonstrated that kratom alkaloids exert central analgesic, anti-anxiety, anti-drug addiction, and antipsychotic effects primarily through activation of central opioidergic, adrenergic, serotoninergic, and dopaminergic neurotransmission systems

A key feature of kratom is its dose dependent effects. Low doses, between 1 gram to 5 grams, are most likely to result in stimulant-like effects, such as increased alertness, energy, and restlessness. At doses greater than 5 grams, the opioid-like effects of kratom are predominant, including analgesia, sedation, and possible euphoria.

Kratom is widely used to alleviate opioid withdrawal symptoms. The alpha-2 noradrenergic activity of kratom may explain its use for minimizing opioid withdrawal symptoms.

There are three primary strains of kratom, named by the appearance of the Mitragyna speciosa leaves: red vein, which is indigenous to Bali, and white and green vein strains, from Indonesia. The presence of alkaloids varies in each strain, which is thought to be responsible for their varying effects.

  • Red vein is said to have relaxing, analgesic, and sedating benefits, most commonly recommended for insomnia or pain.

  • White vein, in lower doses, can provide “wakefulness,” and possesses stimulating properties, providing the user with alertness and motivation.

  • Green vein leaves provide a mix of red and white vein benefits and are considered milder.

The variable benefits from these strains are believed to be related to varying proportions of the differing alkaloids in the leaves.

7-hydroxymitaygnine content between the strains, with higher levels in red vein strains, trace levels in green vein strains, and none identified in white vein strain effects how the Mitragyna speciosa works in the brain.

Kratom is the common name for the leaves of Mitragyna speciosa, a tree in the coffee family native to Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, Borneo, and New Guinea. Its use has been recorded for more than 150 years with the first documented use in 1836 as an opium substitute.  Traditional Southeast Asian uses include chewing leaves by laborers for sustained energy and analgesia after a hard day’s work, as well as brewed tea in the evening for relaxation.

Despite its actions as an opioid agonist and reports of causing sexual dysfunction, kratom has also been used as an aphrodisiac.  One case report suggested the mechanism for sexual dysfunction may be linked to increased prolactin levels.

Mitragynine is the primary active alkaloid responsible for the effects of kratom. It’s main activity is on the mu opioid receptors and is responsible for the opioid-like effects including analgesic results you get with kratom.

7-hydroxymitragynine is eh other active alkaloid in kratom. It is more potent than mitragynine but is less prevalent in the kratom palnt.  7-hydroxymitragynine is estimated to be 13 times more potent than morphine and 46 times more potent than mitragynine for pain relief.. but there is only 2% of this alkaloid in the Kratom plant.

Some of the most commonly reported benefits include:

  • euphoria

  • a sense of wellbeing,

  • relaxation

  • enhanced sociability

  • more energy

  • analgesia

  • sensory enhancement

  • a warm and tingly feeling.

Those using kratom for pain management report preference for its stimulant effects rather than the sedation that often comes with using traditional opioids. However, to achieve opioid-like analgesic effects, higher doses of kratom are needed

The most common way is in a pill form but that is usually just ground up leaves in a pill. the Problem with ground up leaves is that they have a lot of undesirable side effects.

Kratom leaves have over 64 different alkaloids but only 2 are the desirable ones.  The other 62 can cause nausea, dizziness, headaches  and diarrhea. At hippie chicks we process the leaves the same way we process cannabis. we cook out the main actives into a pure form and then add it to our edibles.. all the benefits and no side effects.

Kratom has a very bitter taste from all the alkaloids that grow in the plant and leaves. So it can be very hard to make it taste good in edibles. But Once we cook out the 2 of the active ingredients, it looses 90% of the bitterness. FYI. You can’t taste it all in our chocolate and liquid shots..
