While Kratom has been known to boost energy, there are certain strains of Kratom and equal doses that can encourage a good night’s sleep. Kratom as a sleep enhancer is perfect news for those with sleep problems because the herbal supplement can help induce sleep that is sure to refresh anyone the next morning.
Kratom enthusiasts advice a higher sedative dose of Kratom to achieve a more relaxing good night’s sleep. The sedative effect means that those who may be having a hard time getting a shut-eye can feel more rested and relaxed the next day because of the sleep they are going to get. Unwanted mental alertness during the wee hours of the morning will vanish when kratom capsules are taken in the right sedative doses.
Kratom experts explain that while in low doses Kratom has been used to boost energy, a relatively higher dose has always been used to sedate or relax people, even during the olden days as far back as the 1800s.
In the Western World, the explanation goes more beyond Kratom’s properties that enhanced sedation and feeling of relaxation. It also is anchored to its ability to relax the brain specifically to help de-stress and remove anxiety. Usually, it is anxiety and stress that keeps people awake at night – even non-insomniacs – and so relaxing the mind by eliminating stress and anxiety can help encourage sleep.
Best Kratom Strain for Sleep
Kratom enthusiasts warn though that not all strains can pave the way to a good night’s sleep. Some strains increase mental alertness and physical strength, and the user would not want to use that, of course, especially at night. It would be best to try the strain one wishes to use for sleep when he is at home at day time so he can test whether it relaxes and promote sedation or not. If it suddenly boosts energy and mental alertness, then that means that the strain is not for nighttime sedation.
Enthusiasts say the best Kratom for sleep is the Borneo Kratom Strain or any red vein strain of Kratom. Apart from being a sleep-inducing agent this strain can be best for reducing the feelings of anxiety, which can keep people awake due to unfounded worries. Enthusiasts advise keeping the dose as low as two to three grams initially until the preferred sedation levels are achieved. Users must note that each strain that can induce sleep may also have a variety of sedation level per dosing, so it is best to err on the side of caution, especially when starting.
Experts also warn against trying the Maeng Da strain to induce sleep because that particular strain is for boosting energy levels and mental alertness and not for inducing relaxation and sleep.
