Strongest Kratom of 2017 and 2018 The question that is asked the most is, “what is the strongest Kratom?”
By Sol Gold
Strongest Kratom of 2017 and 2018 Many users often ask us what the strongest strains of Kratom are, and before we attempt to tackle that question, it’s worth explaining why the answer is kind of tricky. The strongest strains are obviously those with the highest Alkaloid content. The problem with this is that, is there are many different factors that determine the potency. Due to differences in environmental conditions, growing techniques, genetics, and overall alkaloid makeup, one strain of kratom can have a higher alkaloid content than another.
With this variability, it is almost impossible to declare one strain the overall strongest. There are strains that tend to express better results for different effects and are better for specific purposes. Let’s take a look at some of the kratom heavyweights that have earned accolades for their potency and effectiveness, based on user reviews that testify to their healing power.
Finding the Strongest Kratom
When selecting a cell phone plan, we make a decision based on a number of factors. To find the best overall plan for our particular needs, we will use the same format for the different kratom strains. However, instead of pricing, performance, customer service and phone selection, the categories are going to be: energy boosting, pain-killing, sedation and mood enhancement.
For energy properties, the strongest kratom strains are:
For many, an energy boost is one of the most desired effects a strain can offer. The energy that a great kratom strain provides is much smoother and more powerful than what caffeinated energy drinks can offer, making it one of the best for focus and difficult or tedious work.
Top Kratom strains for Energy:
- Maeng Da – Very stimulating strain of kratom, and also has the “low-end” alkaloid composition that provides pain relief. Typically, one of the strongest kratom strains.
- Thai – Tied with Maeng Da for #1 spot for kratom strength, as the stimulation effect of both are fairly even, with some exceptions. Less “low-end” alkaloids.
- Malaysian – Considerably less stimulating than Thai and MD, slightly above average for stimulating properties.
- Kratom Fusions and Fusions Plus – The combination of multiple strains mixed together work synergistically and amplify the effectiveness of the product. This is the Most effective and most targeted Kratom available.
Pain-Killing Effects (Analgesia)
Pain-killing ability is one of the greatest kratom benefits for many who use it as a natural remedy. For this reason, it is necessary to know which kratom strain is most effective. This kratom’s pain-killing effects come primarily from alkaloids, mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. These alkaloids also contribute to mood boosting properties.
For pain killing properties, the strongest kratom strains are:
Bali & Borneo – Over time, these kratom strains have become very similar to one another and have a very similar alkaloid spectrum.
Maeng Da – By far the most stimulating strains for analgesia, good for pain relief without typical sedative effects.
Indo – While Indonesia encompasses a large area, Indo strains are commonly used as an umbrella to describe the more sedative varieties — often hybrids (intentionally or unintentionally) of Bali and Borneo strains.
Malaysian – Middle-of-the-road stimulation, great for daily pain relief without negative side effects
Like energetic strains, sedative strains may be helpful for those wanting to unwind after an extended day of labor, or for those that experience anxiety.
Top Kratom strains for Sedation:
- Bali – Overall, Bali is one of the foremost sedating strains of kratom and will always hit the spot.
- Borneo – Strikingly comparable to Bali in pain-killing effects. Borneo from most popular sources is moderately less sedating than Bali for the most part.
- Indo – Normally, Indo strains are equal in sedation effects as the above two, on the other hand, Indo’s sedation effects seem to be much more fluctuating.
The mood-enhancing effects are another critical area for those trying to find the most effective or most euphoric kratom. In general, the essential chemicals that influence mood are the opioid receptor agonist alkaloids and the adrenaline receptor antagonist (and agonist) alkaloids.
Top Kratom strains for Mood Enhancement:
- Maeng Da – Due to the perfect combination of pain-killing and stimulating alkaloids, it has been crowned the most euphoric and strongest kratom. there are many new and potent competitors, which becomes apparent when buying kratom powder online.
- Bali & Borneo – People who have had a great Bali or Borneo kratom know the incredible potency that they hold for mood enhancement. Depending on the strain, growing conditions and kratom tree itself, Bali can certainly compete with MD.
- Indo & Malaysian – Overall, the mood-enhancing effects of both Indo and Malaysian strains are comparable. On the other hand, Indo is much more inconsistent in its effects and occasionally can be one of the most euphoric or slightly mood-lifting at all, based on its level of quality.
Because of the differences of these strains, it is difficult to accurately to determine what the strongest kratom strain is. However, we have found that the fusions and the fusions plus are the most effective when looking for specific and targeted results. We have rated them as follows.
