What You Need to Know About Using Kratom for Sleep

Open Sidebar

One in three adults don’t get enough sleep, and 50 to 70 million adults suffer from some sort of sleep disorder. If you count yourself in this category, you’ve likely tried all the conventional remedies: over-the-counter sleep medicines, melatonin, sleepy teas, mindfulness meditation, cutting out the blue light before bed, the list goes on. Now, a growing number of people are exploring kratom for sleep. But does it work?

Kratom is an herbal extract derived from the mitragyna speciosa tree, native to countries like Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand. Its two dominant alkaloids—mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine—have been shown to encourage certain physiological effects in the body.

If you’re interested in exploring kratom for sleep, there are a few things you need to know.

1. Kratom May Assist Sleep in Multiple Ways

Reports regarding kratom for sleep are largely anecdotal. There haven’t been any major double-blind studies involving the use of kratom for sleep. However, it’s widely understood that kratom’s alkaloids can have a relaxing effect, and this in turn may assist with sleep. In addition, some research has shown kratom may be effective for addressing daily stresses, and this too may play a role. Stress is a leading contributor to sleeplessness, so for some people, the solution may be as simple as quieting the restless mind.

2. The Strain Matters

Different kratom strains are recommended for different purposes. White strains tend to be energizing, green strains tend to be slightly relaxing and mood-elevating, and red strains tend to be the most relaxing. So when it comes to kratom and sleep, red strains like Red Maeng Da and Red Vein Bali are generally the way to go—though there are some excellent green strains as well. For instance, a lot of customers love to buy Maeng Da Kratom in its green variety because this alkaloid-rich strain is more mentally relaxing than the average green strain—Green Maeng Da for sleep is perfect for anyone whose mind tends to race after dark.

3. Product Quality Matters

If you want to achieve the maximum benefit, you have to shop carefully. There is no kratom regulation at the federal level, which means that there’s not a lot of accountability for disreputable or poor-quality distributors. When buying kratom for sleep, make sure that the manufacturer offers all-natural kratom sourced from Southeast Asia—there should be no synthetic ingredients or adulterants of any kind. Quality is everything.

4. Kratom Is Not a Cure for Sleep Disorders

Finally, it’s important to manage expectations. When trying Green Maeng Da for sleep (or any strain, for that matter), you should expect moderate support for common sleep difficulties. Kratom is not a cure for insomnia, sleep apnea, or any other chronic sleep conditions. For major, persistent sleep issues, speak with your doctor. 

If you’re curious about the potential that kratom may offer, the best thing you can do is explore it for yourself. Buy kratom online, and discover what it has to offer.
