Kratom Side Effects

While kratom (Mitragyna Speciosa) has the ability to help a lot of men and women, kratom side effects may occur and kratom users should be aware of what side effects could occur while using kratom.

If you’ve never heard of kratom, it originates from the kratom tree, the kratom leaf is what makes it special. The leaves are crushed and dried out to create kratom powders. Kratom comes in 3 different strains;

  • Red Vein Kratom
  • White Vein Kratom
  • Green Vein Kratom

While there’s only 3 kratom strains, there’s many different kratom powders. Each kratom strain can be sold as-is, but other strains are mixed together to create popular kratom powders users love to buy.


Many people wonder if kratom is safe to use, here’s what I know.

Kratom has never caused anyone to die. Out of the recorded deaths that include kratom, all of them included some other type of drug. If you’re taking kratom, we never recommend taking kratom with other drugs. I don’t even recommend taking kratom with alcohol.


There’s a number of different short-term side effects that may occur when taking kratom.

  •  Itching
  • Sweating
  • Dry Mouth
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Drowsiness
  • Loss Of Appetite
  • Hallucinations
  • Fast Heartbeat
  • Seizures


There’s a number of different long-term side effects that can occur when taking kratom.

  •  Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Constipation
  • Nausea
  • Dry Mouth
  • Drowsiness
  • Loss Of Appetite
  • Tremors
  • Fast Heartbeat
  • Seizures
  • Skin Pigments


There’s a lot of talk about whether or not kratom is addictive.

A lot of what’s out there is studies done with mice and rats. It’s inclusive at best.

Many things are addictive, humans are creatures of habit, so is it possible to get addicted to kratom? Yeah, if you’re not careful, that is possible.

If you’re not careful, you can develop a tolerance for kratom. This usually takes a long duration to develop, so you do have to be aware of your kratom dosing.


As I end this, for those of you that have never taken kratom before, here’s a few tips you should follow.

First, when you buy kratom and you’re ready to start taking it, make sure you start with a low dosage. You should start with 1-2 grams of kratom, give it 30-45 minutes to kick in and see how you feel.

Pay attention and see if you feel any of the side effects above.

If your first few days of doses go well and you don’t feel any side effects, you should be good to go.

Everyone reacts to kratom differently, the only way you can know for sure is by trying it for yourself.
