Thanks to kratom’s medicinal and psychological effects, there are a multitude of reasons people have used this plant throughout the ages; however, before the modern era, these kratom experiences could only be accurately understood through direct association with the person who had the experience.
Luckily, thanks to the internet, there are a vast variety of resources that can help one understand the kratom experience and the effects of kratom, which can often vary from person to person, without traveling to distant locations.
The benefits of having kratom experiences available from a variety of users are vast, especially for those who want to understand the pharmacological, psychological and medicinal properties of kratom for personal, or widespread benefit. There are a variety of sources that can provide deep insight into the experience of kratom.
One of the primary benefits of reading kratom experiences is the increased understanding of medicinal properties of kratom. In fact, nearly every plant that has proven to have medicinal benefit has started as an anecdotal report of the benefits that a user, or multiple users, had while experimenting with the plant. Because of the vast alkaloid assortment of mitragyna speciosa, there may be a multitude of untapped and unknown benefits waiting to be revealed; in fact, some benefits of this plant, such as immune system stimulation, have already been revealed through this process.
As the FDA has not seen fit to classify kratom as a dietary supplement, we don’t recommend ingesting, or any other internal use of this plant in any way, and we promote reports on the kratom experience reports as a means of harm reduction.
By reading the positive, and negative experiences of many different users, it is easier to avoid problems, side effects and contraindications that would otherwise be easily avoidable. Through sifting through a variety of experience reports, you can get great overview and help reduce the risk of side-effects and potential harm resultant in mixing this and other plants, information which is not commonly available through other means.
For anyone who is new to this plant, experience reports can be helpful for another set of reasons. In most reports, especially on forums, there is information on the strain of kratom being used as well as the dosage and vendor that it comes from. Because of this, it is easier to find a safe and helpful variety for one’s own medicinal needs. However, because kratom dosage can vary from plant to plant, ensure not do over-do it, as some may have a higher tolerance to kratom than others.
Thanks to the internet, there are many different experience reports easily accessible to nearly anyone, given they know the right places to search. By far, the most common and popular resource for finding experience reports on any psychoactive substance or herb is Erowid. As of June 2014, this website has accumulated more than 243 different experience reports on different kratom strains, doses and even offers retrospective reports from long-term users.
Another common place to find kratom experience reports are forums. There are a few great forums available that offer first-hand experiences of different strains, doses and vendors, which can be helpful for those looking to find a great vendor as well as those who are searching for kratom strains with particular medicinal effects. These forums are also a vast resource on other topics on the subject, such as legality.
Through these popular and comprehensive resources, it is much easier to find exactly the information needed in order to have a safe, and effective, experience as well as provide information necessary in researching the pharmacological properties of kratom. We at Enso Botanicals highly regard all of these sources.
