Vietnam Kratom: Effects, Benefits, Dosing And More
When it comes to popular kratom strains, another type of kratom that has a fan base is Vietnam. Vietnam kratom is an amazing strain that has a long list of effects and benefits. Vietnam has been growing kratom for centuries, but only recently has this kratom strain been able to penetrate the kratom markets. There’s a few reasons behind Vietnam’s popularity growth, one being the massive growth of kratom itself but another being the type of effects Vietnam kratom can give you (more on this in just a second.)
Vietnam Is Truly Unique
Growing conditions can play a big role in the quality of the kratom you buy. Kratom is a tropical tree that thrives on tropical environments. In Vietnam, the weather and conditions are different than other countries producing kratom in bulk.
A lot of kratom grown in Vietnam comes from areas near the Mekong River. The area is known for having rich minerals that many believe influences the kratom grown there. While Vietnam has similar effects to many other kratom strains, there is differences that others are now just learning about.
The Different Vietnam Kratom Strains
There’s a number of different Vietnam kratom strains. It’s important to note that kratom vendors are creating all kinds of different kratom strains these days, so you always want to be familiar with exactly what’s being used to create the kratom you buy.
Some of the most popular Vietnam strains include White Vietnam, Red Vietnam and Green Vietnam. You may also see Yellow Vietnam or Gold Vietnam.
Yellow Vietnam Kratom – This specific strain has less sedative effects, but is great for relaxing, calming the mind and body. Great for mental focus, clarity and alertness. It can help improve your efficiency, good for jobs or activities that require long periods of mental focus.
Green Vietnam Kratom – Green Vietnam is a powerful strain for pain relief. It is stimulating but at an easy going pace, without the big rush. This specific strain is something you can use during the day for pain relief, chronic pain. Many subtle effects, not overpowering.
Red Vietnam Kratom – The red Vietnam strain is equally a strong pain reliever. Very relaxing, may be able to help both your mood and sleep. Unlike other red kratom strains such as Red Bali or Red Maeng Da, red Vietnam is a milder strain. Mild stimulation, may help with stress and anxiety too.
White Vietnam Kratom – White Vietnam has a strong stimulation, immediate energy boost and a sense of overall well-being. It’s a great mood enhancer, good for social situations if you’re not comfortable out in the crowds.
I’d advise you to pay attention to the exact strains used in the strain variations versus paying attention to the names. Vendors get creative with names, so it can confuse someone that doesn’t know kratom as well as others.
There’s many kratom strains out there on the market and each one can be different, so we always recommend new users to take the time to understand the main kratom types and how strains can differ from one another.
Effects And Benefits
With Vietnam kratom, there’s a number of different effects and benefits this specific strain is becoming known for. Before we jump in, a good rule of thumb is to remember how kratom can give both stimulating and sedative effects. In low doses, kratom can give you stimulation effects while large doses can be sedative. (Don’t forget that, it applies to all kratom).
(1) Pain Relief
One of the main benefits kratom is known for is pain relief, Vietnam is no different. For any of you that suffer from pain and want a natural product that relieves pain, Vietnam may be able to help. We also know it’s good for chronic pain too. Kratom is able to interact with your pain receptors, in similar ways as opioids react to them. Vietnam can help you block pain, allowing you to get relief.
(2) Sedation, Relaxing
Vietnam can have sedation, relaxing and euphoria effects in medium to larger doses. This is why Vietnam kratom may be able to help with stress, anxiety and depression. For anyone that has a mind that races, this may be able to help you ease your mind, even helping with sleep.
Just like other kratom strains, Vietnam contains mitragynine. This is what can give you a boost of energy and help with fatigue. The locals know this well as its been used as a stimulant for centuries.
(4) Mood Enhancing
Vietnam kratom strains have the ability to put you in a “good” mood, helping you feel happier, cheerful, uplifting and more sociable. Many users say it gives them a sense of “well-being” and just makes you feel great.
Dosing Vietnam Kratom
Since Vietnam kratom has numerous strains, dosing can be across the board dependent on the type of effects you’re looking for.
Due to that, I want to leave you with some general sound advice as it pertains to dosing.
If Vietnam is the first strain you plan to take of kratom, just be sure to take your time. Start out slow, only take a low dose of 1-2 grams when starting. I always recommend giving it 30-45 minutes to kick in. You should start feeling the effects by this time, some of you may not. If you don’t, you can try taking 1-2 grams after you wait and again, wait an additional 30-45 minutes. By this time, you should be feeling the effects of the kratom.
If you’ve been taking kratom prior, you know more about how much you need than I do. Just make sure you’re using good judgement.
My Personal Recommendations
I know several people that really enjoy Vietnam.
The one big benefit I heard over and over again is Vietnam has long-lasting effects.
Remember, every Vietnam strain has different known effects. Despite knowing these, your experience may be different, so always be prepared for that.
The only way to know for sure how Vietnam makes you feel is by taking it yourself.
Always use your best judgement, be safe and I hope you find that perfect strain that can help you everyday life.
