Both kratom and cannabis have been used for thousands of years, yet it was only within the past century that the potent medicinal and psychological synergy between these two has been discovered.
As far as we can see, throughout the vast amount of time that these two compounds have been used, there is yet to be any reports of serious physical harm that has come from either of this compounds, either alone or together.
Because the legal status of cannabis varies from country to country and state to state, we trust you to use these compounds responsibly and we don’t condone breaking the laws of your region.
Besides mood enhancing, the combination of kratom and weed has a tremendous variety of medicinal effects, and the synergy between these two is quite apparent for those with chronic pain, or opiate addiction.
If there is one trumping medicinal use for this combination it is for pain. Both of these compounds alone have proven to be highly effective in fighting a variety of types of pain, and together they can help with conditions such as:
This list is in no way definitive, as the vast majority of pain varieties can be treated with this combination.
In order to understand why this compound is so effective for pain, we need to first look at the effects these two compounds have on the brain and body.
Kratom’s pain relief potential comes primarily from two alkaloids: 7-hydroxymitragynine and mitragynine. Like our body’s own natural painkillers, endorphins, these two alkaloids target the body’s mu and delta opiod receptors, effectively dampening the pain signal that the brain sends. In the right dosages, this effect alone can take a normally severe pain to a moderate/mild pain within an hour.
Cannabis’ is far unlike any pharmaceuticals that are used for pain, and it’s pharmacology is quite unique. The cannabis plant has over 66 known alkaloid variations, some of the most effective for pain include: THC, CBD,and CBG. These compound work in tandem, in order to attack pain and the perception of pain in multiple ways.
First, cannabis, like kratom, decreases pain sensitivity, however, cannabis goes even farther to increase the body’s natural pain tolerance. With a healthy dose of THC, even the perception of pain is interrupted by dissociating the patient from the every-present pain consciousness that chronic pain patients deal with.
By using both kratom and weed together, you impact not only the pain signal strength, but also the body’s natural pain tolerance, and even the perception of pain. This synergy can be hugely effective for any pain patient who is not seeing good improvements from their current pain treatment.
Although kratom has proven to be a very effective standalone treatment for opiate withdrawals and PAWS, many users have found the combination of these two compounds even more effective than the sum of their parts. While no research, to our knowledge, has been done specifically testing the synergistic effects of these two compounds, many users’ anecdotal reports show much praise for this treatment, as it can dramatically reduce some symptoms, such as RLS and anxiety quite effectively.
Similar to the medicinal effects of kratom and weed, the psychological effects are similarly synergistic. Many who take these two compounds report a large amount of potentiation, making it very effective for, among many others, stress and anxiety relief. Accord to anecdotal reports, the most common benefits conferred by this substance include:
Together, all of these effects make this combination very worthwhile, both for those who are interested in increasing their sphere of experience as well as those who are looking to treat psychological ailments, such as stress, anxiety or depression, with much less side effects and unpleasantness than the kratom and alcohol combination.
Because both kratom and weed are extremely diverse plants, the effects can be quite dependent upon the particular strains of both that you choose. For cannabis, a general guideline is that sativa strains tend to be stimulating, whereas indica strains tend to be sedating. Strains such as Thai, Maeng Da, and types such as white veins, tend to be stimulating, whereas Borneo, Bali and Indo, and types such as red veins, tend to be sedating.
With these differences in mind, it is important to choose strains that fit your needs. For example, if you have chronic fatigue syndrome, you may want to consider mixing a Thai kratom strain with a sativa. However, if you’re looking for stress, anxiety or pain relief, mixing and indica with a red vein Bali, Borneo or Indo, is often a great choice.
Because many users feel that kratom takes away the anxious edge that stimulating strains of cannabis can bring, many enjoy mixing sedating kratom strains with a stimulating cannabis strains in order to achieve a best-of-both-worlds psychological effect, which often proves to be quite euphoric.
Overall, the combination of kratom and weed is highly synergistic medicinally and psychologically. As always, it is a good idea to start low and slowly increase the dosage in order to have a good understanding of how this combination of compounds will effect your body.

With current legislation pending, it seems kratom may no longer be legal in the United States. Although we haven't sold kratom directly in over a year, this legislation will negatively impact hundreds of thousands throughout the country. Please contact your local congressmen.
