How to Get rid of anxiety with Kratom?
Anxiety is a negative emotion, which is described as the unpleasant feeling of inner turmoil, which is accompanied by nervous behavior. In fact, anxiety is widely spread like a plague as for today; work, family issues and many more stressful situations which we face every day keep us anxious, as there is a lot needed to be accomplished and we worry about everything turning out to be well almost every day.
Anxiety is a very negative feeling, not only because it’s unpleasant, but also due to the fact that it may turn bad for our health leading to heart issues, stroke, cancer, stomach ulcer and so on. If you are experiencing anxiety you may feel:
- Elevated heartbeat
- Muscle stiffness
- An unpleasant feeling in your stomach
- Dry mouth
- Fast breathing
- A feeling of fear and inconvenience
You will also start being very nervous and also start repeating movements like walking from one place to another, scratching your head or doing the repeated movement with your fingers, shaking your feet while sitting and so on. In conclusion, anxiety is a really bad case scenario, which you must avoid or get rid of, which is not as easy as it seems. A lot of drugs have been invented for anxiety management which is called anxiolytics (from the Greek anxos, which literally means anxiety) but also cost a lot and, in most cases, need a prescription. But Kratom can help you manage it!
What is the chemistry behind this?
The exact mechanism of Kratom anxiolytic effect is not clear as for today. The general thought is that Kratom’s alkaloids (mostly mitragynine and 7-Hydroxymitragynine) work as benzodiazepine receptor GABA complex-receptor- chlorine ion channel agonists.
This means that Benzodiazepines bind to benzodiazepine receptors which increase the affinity of GABA to GABA-receptors; GABA is released which leads to the increased frequency of flow of chlorine into neurons. This, along with its antidepressant and mood enchanting effects leads to anxiety management (which is considered as a possible mechanism).
What are the best strains and doses?
To achieve an effect like this, you must use a strong and high potent kratom strain. The best ones to use are red vein strains:
- Red Bali
- Red Thai
The best doses are moderate to high doses, as they can help you achieve such effect (as low doses have more of a stimulating effect) and the best is from 5-15gr. If you are a newbie, don’t consider taking a dose more than 10gr at once, as it can lead to unpleasant side effects, which will only make the anxiety get worse. If you are an experienced user, then use the highest dose you are comfortable with.
Strength and conditions
As mentioned above, the strongest and most potent leaves are red vein strains. Kratom can be used in any conditions involving anxiety, fear due to anxiety, and an unpleasant feeling due to anxiety; technically every condition involving anxiety and its complications. If taken in the right dose, it will relieve anxiety symptoms and make you happy and relaxed (depending on the intake method it may take some time about 10-20 minutes).
