Kratom has recently come to light for people looking for a natural, organic, herbal treatment. Others have turned to it for recreational purposes, made easy by the fact that it isn’t officially illegal. Users who want to feel more energetic, happy or focussed are experimenting with different strains of Kratom. Each strain offers different benefits, and there are a few which can provide the ultimate euphoric effects, perfect for those who want to unwind and have fun.
What are the effects of euphoric Kratom?
Kratom has most notably been used for treating chronic pain, and for people who want to treat opioid withdrawal symptoms.
The main alkaloid in Kratom is called 7-Hydroxymitragynine, which binds to the opioid receptors in the brain, and this causes the user to experience a range of feelings, one of which can be euphoria.
This euphoria is slightly different to that of opioids, because it doesn’t diminish the users consciousness, instead it leaves the user feeling relaxed, calm and happy.
Depending on the type of Kratom that is used, users have reported feeling:
- An Increase in overall level of energy and mood. Many people turn to Kratom to enhance their mood and some even use it to treat low levels of depression.
- Highly stimulated. Some strains are better for this than others, and the dosage can play a part in whether you become stimulated or go the opposite way and feel sedated.
- Better focus and concentration. This comes down to the strain, but some users have reported that they can work more efficiently when they take Kratom.
- Boost stamina and endurance. The history of Kratom’s origins includes labourers using the herb to boost their energy levels and reduce fatigue. 
What are the most euphoric Kratom Strains?
This is a list of the top three Kratom strains for those who are searching for one with the ability to give a euphoric experience. They are listed in order of potency, however some users find that mixing these strains with others works better for them. This comes down to the individual, who usually makes this judgement based on their experiences with different Kratom strains.
Maeng Da Kratom
Maeng Da is one of the most commonly used types of Kratom. Originating from Thailand, this strain is extremely strong. It is recognized by its dark colored leaves, and for its high potency due to its unique alkaloid composition. It’s considered to have the right balance between relaxation and stimulation, leaving the user feelings bouts of euphoria. The white strain of Maeng Da is considered to be the best for euphoria.
Green Malay Kratom
Green Malay, originating from Malaysia, is another favourite amongst Kratom users. Known for its energy boosting properties, the effects last longer than Maeng Da. It has a high potency, but is considered easier to take for beginners than Maeng Da. Used in small doses, it can be beneficial for users who want a motivational kick, mood enhancement or pain relief.
White Borneo Kratom
White Borneo originates from a tree in Borneo, which stands out because of the white vein running down the leaves (hence the name). Often likened to coffee, it gives its users an energy boost and alertness, without the twitching and anxiety that can with the caffeine drink. Although it doesn’t provide a complete euphoric experience, it may be more suitable for users who wish to have their energy levels raised, become more focussed and add feelings of happiness into their day.
What is the correct dose for euphoric Kratom?
Finding the correct dosage doesn’t come straight away, especially to new users. A number of other effects come into place, regardless of which type of Kratom you choose. The strain of Kratom will also affect how much will be needed to gain a real euphoric sensation.
As a general guideline, these measurements can be followed:
- 1 to 3 grams. This will give the user a mild euphoric experience, and is best suited for new users who don’t know how their body will initially react.
- 4 to 6 grams will give a stronger euphoric feeling, as well as intense relaxation. This is better suited for experienced users who will be able to handle a larger dosage.
- 7 to 10 grams is not advised for a euphoric experience. The dosage is too high, leading the user to feel sedated more than anything else.
New users should always start off with a low dosage and build their way up. Finding the right balance takes patience, as external and internal factors can affect how Kratom works in each individual person. 
What causes Kratom to give feelings of euphoria?
So how does Kratom have this euphoric effect on people? It all comes down to the chemical compounds of the leaves. All Kratom strains are known to contain over 20 different alkaloids, and it is these that contribute to the different benefits and properties in each strain.
Mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine are the two main compounds active in Kratom. After they are absorbed into the bloodstream, they reach the brain and bind onto opioid receptors.
Endorphins are released, because the alkaloids stimulate the sympathetic nervous system, which in turn can create effects such as euphoria. This is the same part of the brain that can also decrease pain receptiveness, and also produce sedation, pleasure and other stimulating effects. 
Finding the right strain can mean having to experiment with different types before achieving euphoria. The strength and the dosage play a big part in how the herb will affect each user, but it is important to keep in mind that Kratom can cause dependency and withdrawal effects if used frequently. It’s clear to conclude that Maeng Da is the perfect option for achieving the most potent euphoric experience, however this option may not be suitable for everyone.
Understanding that Kratom is not considered a drug, rather a herbal treatment, alongside responsible usage and finding the right strain, should allow most users to reach some level of euphoria during their Kratom journey.
