Kratom is very popular nowadays in the western world as an alternative medicine to treat debilitating pain. Those that need chronic pain management such as individuals afflicted with arthritis, repetitive sports injuries, fibromyalgia and the like have been exploring the many benefits of Kratom when it comes to relieving pain.
Kratom experts say each type of kratom can have a different potency level when it comes to pain relieving properties. The strain usually rely on where the plant has been grown, and the type of plant that has been propagated.
The US National Library – National Institutes of Health has published a study that tried to explain some of the properties of kratom plant. One of those extensively discussed is its pain relieving properties.
“This alkaloid is the one responsible for analgesic activity that has been linked to kratom use mostly due to its potent opioid agonist property . Although mitragynine can act on the mu (μ), kappa (κ), and delta (δ) opioid receptors, it is structurally different from morphine and other components from the opioid family; the reason why it has been suggested is that it might also present with a more broad receptor binding activity.”

Kratom from the Borneo region in Indonesia is generally somewhat sedating and highly analgesic. Red veined Borneo will be more sedating and pain killing than the green or white veined leaves. Borneo kratom is often a dark green color due to the brightness of the red in the veins which represents the sedating and pain killing compounds within the leaf itself.”
