Kratom- Dosing and Preparation
In determining what strain and amount is best for you, consider what you are looking for; Stimulation, Euphoria, Analgesia (pain killer), Relaxation, or Sedation. Each of our varieties contains the effects of each. However, here is a breakdown per strain that we offer and the suggested use and serving size:
WIld Harvested Borneo Red or Yellow
Suggested serving size:
Small dose – ¼-½ teaspoon for Mood boosting, mental clarity, and overcoming fatigue.
Med/Lrg. Dose- ¾-1 tsp for Analgesia, Relaxation and Sedation.
Caution: 2 grams (one teaspoon) 2X a day of Kratom would be the max dose for anyone under 250lbs. Our opinion- we have found that increasing the dose does not mean increasing the benefits or effects. Taking too much (more than 2 g/ 5 grams plus, a day collectively) will cause you to purge. Less is more!!!
Plantation Grown Green
Our most user friendly and a good starting variety for energy, mental clarity, overcoming fatigue,
and mild analgesic (pain killer).
Suggested serving size:
Small/ Med dose 1- 2 grams (start with ¼-½ teaspoon, work up to 1 teaspoon 1 or 2X daily).
Large dose- 3g (over full teaspoon) 1x daily
Kauai Kratom- TBD
Suggested serving size:TBD
IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: Kratom can have mild side effects. It is best to stay with a dose of 1-2g no more than 2X a day. Take 1-2g once or twice a day, for productivity, irritable bowel, anxiety and less severe symptoms. Side effects of taking too much may include one or more of the following: constipation, dizziness and at high doses of 3g+ you may get nausea/vomiting. You will normally throw up before consuming too high a dose for your body to handle. Stay hydrated and don’t mix Kratom with excessive alcohol, depressants, benzos, antidepressants, and opiates (makes you quit the bad stuff, your body will reject the above, best used with plant medicines only). Take plant medicines safely and responsibly.*

Kratom Technical Sheet
The most dramatic evidence for Kratom is it’s therapeutic effects and the relief people experience who suffer from chronic illness, including people with an addiction to opioids and nicotine that are trying to manage withdrawal symptoms. Due to Kratom many have been able to function in their jobs and relationships where they have had difficulty before. These consumers believe that kratom is more satisfactory than conventional medicines with respect to effectiveness and fewer undesirable side-effects.*
When opium was in short supply, people with an addiction used it as a substitute as it has a similar effect on your brain’s opioid receptors, though it is not an opioid.*
Kratom contains more than 40 compounds and over 25 alkaloids, most notably mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. These are mild analgesics, and help interfere with the effects of opioids, to alleviate some of the suffering associated with withdrawal.*
At Naikela we have personally been experimenting with a few varieties of Kratom and pouring into lots of research. We always want to ensure we bring you the best. We have been working with our farmers in Borneo, Indonesia to bring to you three varieties specific to your needs. We have wild harvested Borneo (Red and Yellow) and plantation grown (Green). We are currently
growing our own Kauai Kratom with our 1st harvest come this fall!
Let’s dive in deeper to review the fullness of Kratom’s Key Features and Benefits:
Energy Giving As a central nervous system stimulant, Kratom, enhances cognitive function and improves focus without the jitters coffee might give you. Relieves lethargy and fatigue with the right dose of energy and motivation to work.*
Relieves Pain The alkaloids, mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine present in Kratom are responsible for the painkilling effect. These alkaloids act on the opiate receptors in the central nervous system. They send a message to the neurons which enhances the release of enkephalins and endorphins. These neurotransmitters then act by suppressing pain signals that go from the periphery to the brain.*
A low dose of 2 grams is effective in producing analgesic effects that last four to six hours, relieving pain in conditions such as osteoarthritis, osteomalacia, osteoporosis, chronic backache, joint pain, arthritis and more.*
Curbs addictions and cravings Kratom has a wonderful effect on regulating the satiety center in the hypothalamus of our brain. What this means is a reduction in cravings and curbing all addictions. A wonderful benefit for one who is struggling with obesity and needs to reduce their appetite to lose weight naturally.*
Specifically, in reference to opiate addictions and withdrawal, Kratom resembles the action of Opiates, yet it is not an opiate. By way of the alkaloid compounds present in Kratom the opiate receptors are activated in the brain and bind to the receptors before an opioid would. This action eases the effects of the addiction and curbs the recovering addicts cravings for the drug without the risk of long-term dependency.*
Kratom benefits also reduce typical symptoms of opiate withdrawal such as cramps, vomiting, nausea, sleeplessness, pain and anxiety.*
It has been a part of substance abuse treatments that have helped addicts overcome their dependency on a wide range of drugs like heroin and even alcohol. This is a major benefit of Kratom for people who have struggled a long time with addiction.*
Some of the strains important in reducing opiate withdrawal symptoms include; wild harvested Borneo Red and Plantation grown Green.*
Reduces Stress, Anxiety, and Depression The psychoactive substance of Kratom releases endorphins and serotonin which enhances your overall mood and can give users a euphoric feeling.*
The calming effects of Kratom eases tension helping with social anxiety, insomnia, heart palpitations, sweating, hyperventilation, muscle cramps, and more. This makes the benefits of Kratom ideal for people suffering from mood swings, anxiety, depression, PTSD, panic attacks, chronic stress and those with highly demanding jobs.*
Kratom Strains and Alkaloids Some Kratom strains are stronger than others. The alkaloids are the active ingredients in Kratom that impart various properties and effects. On the basis of their interaction with the opiate receptors in the brain, differing alkaloids have a stronger affinity to binding than others.*
Alkaloids are natural occurring molecules composed of nitrogen and carbon. They are basic in nature yet have very important physiological effects on a human being. Some well-know alkaloids you may have heard of are morphine, quinine, nicotine, and ephedrine.*
Kratom consists of more than 40 alkaloids. The main alkaloids we have mentioned are Mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. These are the ones that act on the opiate receptors as well as on adenosine-2a, postsynaptic a-2, dopamine-2s, and serotonin receptors. These are the strongest alkaloids that correlate to analgesia (pain killer).*
Hydroxymitragynine forms 2% of the 40 alkaloids in Kratom. Other active alkaloids of Kratom are ajmalicine, mitraphylline, rhynchophylline, mitragynine pseudoindoxyl, raubasine, pausinystalia johimbe and corynanthidine, 7-acetoxymitragynine, Corynoxein, Corinoxin, 3-Dehydromitragynin, Epicatechin, 3-Isocorynantheidin, 3-Isopaynanthein, Isomitraphyllin, Isospeciofolin, Isospecionoxein, Mitraciliatin, Mitrafolin, Mitragynalin , Mitraphylin, Mitraspecin, Mitraversin, Paynanthein, Speciociliatin, Speciofolin, Speciogynin, Specionoxein, Speciogynin, Speciofolin, Stipulatin.*
Other than alkaloids, Kratom consists of terpenoid saponins, flavonoids, glycosides and various polyphenols*
