How does Kratom Work for Anxiety?
Kratom is not an opiate. However, it does bind to the same receptors in the brain, and has similar effects. Subsequently, Kratom works wonders as a pain killer, which may be the cause of anxiety relief for some. But, Kratom also can help to lift your overall mood, keep you focused, and keep you energized. Some of the symptoms of anxiety are having trouble concentrating, and feeling tired or unmotivated. Kratom helps to alleviate these symptoms.
Additionally, Kratom in different doses has different effects. While the lower doses can be energetic and uplifting, higher doses of Kratom can have a sedative effect. Many people with anxiety have trouble sleeping at night, and Kratom works wonders for becoming relaxed and calm and ready for a good night’s sleep.
Many people have trouble with social anxiety, and find that Kratom takes the edge off of that, too. Importantly, Kratom makes people feel awake and personable, without feeling jittery or slurred. In the right dose, Kratom can be a great addition to your evening with friends, without keeping you awake all night, or leaving you groggy the next morning.
