Over the last few weeks, we have had a surge of customers asking if Kratom will help with Anxiety issues. Given the current Coronavirus health crisis we’re experiencing both here in the United States and worldwide, it’s natural that people are anxious and looking for anything to help calm their nerves. We’ll try to answer your Kratom and Anxiety questions and offer some recommendations below.
HOW KRATOM WORKS
If you’re not familiar with Kratom, it’s a tree native to Indonesia and other countries in Southeast Asia. People have used the Kratom leaves for centuries to help with anything from chronic pain to anxiety to energy. Where the Kratom plant is grown and for how long it is grown, Kratom can have different properties which are referred to as Kratom strains. There are multiple Kratom strains that have different effects.
We have more detailed information on What Is Kratom here.
With multiple strains of Kratom, there will be a variety of effects different strains and products will have. Our customers will often use red strains for a more sedative effect at night, while other customers will use a green strain in the morning for a more energy-based effect throughout the day.
While a red strain might have a more sedative effect, it also can have different properties associated with the sedative effect. WSC customers will use some red Kratom strains for a sedative, anti-anxiety effect at night. Other customers will use a Gold strain for a mild euphoric effect during that day that also helps with anxiety and chronic pain. Every different Kratom product has slight differences and effects they produce.
According to a recent Johns Hopkins Medicine study on Kratom, Kratom user participants used Kratom for a variety of effects. 91% took Kratom to alleviate pain while 67% used Kratom for anxiety and 65% for depression.

Kratom strains will affect people differently, so it’s always best to try different strains to find the effects that work best for you. If you’re very sensitive to caffeine, it’s best to try a more mild strain like Gold Bali before you try a more stimulating strain like Green Maeng Da. And it’s always best to try a lower dosage first to find an appropriate dosage amount balanced with the effects you desire.
We understand this is a trying time for you, your family and our country, and if there are any Kratom related questions we can answer for you, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
