Kratom has been on the rise in the United States after wellness enthusiasts were introduced to this natural herb’s versatile benefits. Occasional sleeplessness is becoming more prevalent in our society. From daily stress to mindlessly scrolling on social media, it keeps us restless and awake long after midnight, impacting our lives in a negative way. Read on to find out how kratom can be a natural sleep aid for occasional sleeplessness.

What is Kratom?

Kratom is a natural plant called Mitragyna speciosa Korth. The kratom plant is also known by other names such as ketum, biak, or thom in its indigenous homelands in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand. The plant thrives in the rainforests of these countries in Southeast Asia and is harvested from the wild. Kratom also has centuries of reported usage by Southeast Asian locals who use it for its relaxing or stimulating effects. 

How Kratom Can Naturally Aid Sleep

Depending on what’s affecting your normal sleep routine, kratom supplements can help in two ways. If you think you need to be more active during the day, kratom can be stimulating and energizing to get more done. Physical activities such as exercise and outdoor fun can tire you out and aid in better sleep.

If you occasionally feel restless and suffer from poor sleep because of stress and nervousness, kratom’s relaxing effects can lull you to peaceful sleep. The soothing relaxation also benefits recovery after arduous physical activities.

Kratom alkaloids elevate the mood while also having calming effects on the body and mind. Other than Mitragynine, lesser-known alkaloids like Paynantheine also promote relaxation and sleep. You may also want to consider kratom as a replacement for other natural sleep aids such as melatonin, cannabis, CBD, and valerian root.

Kratom Serving Size for Sleep Aid

As a rule of thumb, smaller servings are more energizing, while larger servings soothe. But taking the right strains and starting small is recommended to find the right amount of kratom that works for you and your body.

Taking a serving 1 hour before bedtime is optimal as the effects take a little time to digest and kick in. With that, you can incorporate some downtime chill activities into your nightly routine such as listening to music or preparing yourself for a good night’s sleep. The effects of kratom last about 3-6 hours, giving you quality sleep and helping manage sleep problems.

Best Kratom Strains for Sleep

Super Speciosa has three of the most popular red kratom strains for aiding your sleep. All our kratom products are made with high-quality kratom leaf – pure, unaltered, and untouched.

Red Maeng Da Kratom

Red Maeng Da is one of our strongest kratom strains, containing high levels of mitragynine, the main alkaloid in kratom. The word “Maeng Da” in Thai means “pimp-grade”, referring to the strength of this popular red strain. Optimal for late hours of the day to relax and ease the tension, Red Maeng Da makes your body feel right and calms the mind for restful sleep later.

This red vein kratom strain is great for taking it easy on yourself, reducing sleep disturbances, and improving your well-being through a soothing calm that cares for all the stress and bottled emotions.

What Super Speciosa’s Buyers Say about Red Maeng Da

Red Maeng Da is my favorite strain for sleeping. It’s very calming and chill. It also makes me have the wildest dreams…which is always fun. I always feel good after sleeping with this stuff. Highly recommend. Or even just sitting on the couch after a long day of work watching tv.”

“I would say Cherry Bomb Calm is perfect. I’ve only had 1 serving and it was great. It had very subtle effects that felt great. A relaxing calming peaceful feeling that lasted about 3 hours. It came on subtle and left subtle. It tasted like cherry with mint in it. I could hardly taste the Kratom at all.”

“Super Speciosa has the best Red Maeng Da I have ever had. I’ve tried over 20 different vendors and no one compares to Super Speciosa. I was lucky these guys were the first company I ever tried because I’ll be a customer for life.”

Kratom Safe Usage Guidelines

Our kratom is intended to be used as a dietary supplement and should be used only as directed on the label. While kratom users prefer larger serving sizes for relaxing effects, it’s important to not exceed the recommended serving size of 2.4g per serving. It is not recommended to take more than two servings per day. U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not approve kratom use at this time.

Potential Side Effects

When consumed as directed, kratom is generally safe. However, the effects of kratom can vary slightly for each person. To avoid any unwanted side effects such as drowsiness, nausea, headaches, frequent urination, dry mouth, constipation, sweating, or loss of appetite, for your safety, it’s recommended to consult your healthcare provider for medical advice. Long-term use of kratom may lead to tolerance and the risk of dependence, but regular tolerance breaks can help minimize these risks.
