When people talk about finding the best kratom for energy and focus, they’re actually talking about a variety of linked kratom benefits.
They are talking about using kratom to boost their physical energy, and sometimes their mental energy. But it’s also about improving your mental focus and clarity.
More than that, it’s about lifting your mood, even improving significant mental health problems like anxiety and depression. And even more than that, it can be about achieving kratom euphoria, an energetic, or peaceful, high, and sometimes and opiate-like high experience.
I’ve experienced all of these things in my journey over the past few years, especially as I’ve used kratom to help deal with a couple of mental health issues I’ve had very successfully. So let’s take a look in detail at which kratom strains are best for energy, euphoria, focus, and generally lifting yourself up, and creating a blissful but productive state.
Using Kratom To Lift Your Mood & Confront Depression
So look, for me, kratom was about lifting my mood. It wasn’t about getting euphoric, getting high on kratom, finding the best kratom for energy and focus mentally dragged me out of depression and helped with anxiety.
Now I have to be clear with you here. Depression is incredibly serious and you shouldn’t just suddenly swab into using kratom or start using it on top of prescribed medication. You need to do research, and speak to a doctor.
The reason I say this is because depression saps you of energy both mentally and physically. It turns you in on yourself. But what kratom does is it delivers a burst of energy that can go on for hours, and it can make you mentally focused, it can make you feel better emotionally, and it can drive you forward.
The strains I found which are best for lifting your mood are:
- White vein Bali
- White Maeng Da
- White Borneo
- Green Malay
- Green Indo
But those strains of kratom just helped me. Some people might find them too energizing, too much, especially the white kratom. But a lot of that depends on the dosage, the frequency, the type of person you are, and the purity of the kratom you’re taking.
Green kratom has more analgesic effects, it will chill you out a lot more, but it still retains enough of the energy and enthusiasm factors to lift you out of depression (that is important to note that the higher the dose, the more the differences between kratom strains merge).
A word here about anxiety though. You don’t use white kratom for anxiety. Anxiety relief comes from chilling out and getting control of your runaway thoughts. For that, you will need a red kratom. Any type of red kratom will do, but I’ll talk more about red kratom later when I talk about the most opiate-like kratom strains.
Which Kratom Is Best For Energy?
So let’s look at which kratom is best for energy, I’m talking physical energy now rather than emotional energy and uplift.
All kratom will energize you at lower doses. Red, green, white, it all gives you a physical energy kick at a low dose. However, the higher the dose, and especially with red kratom, that energy will turn in a couple of hours into a blissful desire to just chill out and not do much at all.
Sure you’ll feel calm and wonderful, it’s great for depression, it’s great for withdrawal symptoms, it’s great for feeling great! But it’s not going to give you a boost of energy over several hours.
So the best kratom strains for a sustained physical energy boost tend to be white and green. That’s why people in the regions that kratom are grown, and farmers generally there, have used white and green kratom during the day when they are doing hard work.
Again, almost any white or green kratom strain will do. However, when I need a physical energy boost I usually turn to a classic white like Bali or Thai. Just 2-3 grams, a couple of times during the day gives me almost endless physical energy, alongside cognitive sharpness.
For energy boosts, I tend to use kratom capsules. PurKratom sells excellent kratom capsules, and their White Bali capsules are a strong recommendation of mine.
Capsules are discreet. So I can just pop a couple in my mouth, a gram, and swallow with water easily. So sometimes do this through the day, or sometimes take a strong hit first thing in the morning, and then another couple 2-4 grams after lunch.
The Most Opiate-Like Kratom
Now I want to talk about the most opiate-like kratom strains out there. The reason people want to find out about kratom being opiate-like is that they want to use it for two reasons:
- They want to chill out. They might be anxious, they might have withdrawal symptoms, they might have physical pain: they might want a blissful and calming time.
- They are looking to replace a narcotics high, or an abused prescription medication high, with a less addictive kratom high.
So I want to be clear, we are really talking about opiate-like kratom for two different reasons, firstly chill you out and relieve symptoms and feelings, and secondly to get you high, to mimic that narcotics high for fun, or to help with getting clean from them.
For me, the most opiate-like kratom strains are reds. It doesn’t really matter what red, as long as it’s pure, it will have that opiate-like response, especially at higher doses. In fact, the dose is almost as important as the strain of red kratom.
I will talk about dosing kratom in a little while, but we are talking about a significant dose, for some people as much as 10 grams, sometimes more, to get that euphoric opiate-like kratom high, that narcotic-like hit, that feeling that you get with high doses of prescription opiates.
An opiate-like kratom, a red kratom like Thai, Bali, Indo, or Red Maeng Da, will deliver a blissful rush of enthusiasm, happiness, delight, positivity, and pleasure. That then sinks into hours of feeling totally chilled out, free of concerns and worries, and also free of any physical pain.
I have never had an addiction to try and break. However, I did take high doses of red kratom to see how it felt. I’m telling you that when you take 10 grams of pure red kratom in one go, you’re going to feel a smooth, blissful rush I can only describe as feeling wonderfully high, with the delicious side effects of not feeling any emotional or physical pain.
When I’ve done it, and it’s only been a few times, I’ve to use classic red’s: Bali, Borneo, and Thai. Many people say that Bali is the most opiate-like kratom, so my suggestion is it’s a great starting place if you want to get that feeling (Coastline Kratom do an absolutely blissful Red Bali).
Best Kratom Strains For Euphoria
So linked to them talking about the most opiate-like kratom is talking about the best kratom for euphoria. Some people don’t even believe you can get a euphoric kratom high, but I’m telling you that it’s definitely possible.
But the type of kratom high is going to be defined by the type of kratom you are taking, and the dosage. Because the high is different, it’s important to understand this, so that you can tailor the high you want to the kratom you buy:
- For a pure, clean, uplifting euphoric kratom high, one that is packed full of physical energy, you’re looking at white kratom. Sometimes a strong dose of green kratom, Green Malay is renowned for its strong euphoric high for example.
That clean euphoric high, with caffeine-like energy, has been likened to taking MDMA. Physical energy, emotional energy, happiness, positivity, and brilliant for a night with friends.
- You could be looking for an opiate-like high. Something like you would experience with opium, heroin, stuff like that. Red kratom is best for that. That’s because it will give you an initial rush of energy, a real enthusiastic high, but will quickly start to dip into a wonderfully rich feeling of bliss, not wanting to move, just laying around listening to music, talking, experiencing sensations and feelings.
- The middle ground is literally between those two types of kratom high. I talked earlier about Green Malay, well green kratom is good for this because it can give you the burst of energy that you will get with white kratom, but also mixed with the benefits of red kratom. So you’ll experience wonderful energy levels, enthusiasm, happiness, but you’ll still get that blissed-out, pain-free, nothing worries you, feeling as well.
Red Maeng Da is also good for this middle ground. That’s because it tends to be a very strong red kratom, often infused with strong white or green kratom as well. So it’s like a classic red, but if you get the real deal, then Red Maeng Da can also give you more energy and keep you mentally and physically more alert than just taking a huge dose of other classic red kratom strains.
Dosing Kratom For Energy, Euphoria & Focus
Before I move on to the conclusion of this piece about the best kratom for energy and focus, by giving you some quick reviews of places I’ve bought kratom from to achieve this, I want to talk to you about dosing kratom for energy, euphoria, and focus.
Kratom is a spectrum drug. What that means is that the effect you feel at a lower dose won’t be the one you feel is a high dose.
At low doses, all kratom delivers a burst of physical and mental energy, alongside happiness, and feeling highly motivated.
As the dose of pure kratom increases, those effects of green, white, and red start to kick indifferently. As you now know, white kratom delivers a huge physical and emotional energy boost, that some people can find too much.
Red kratom starts to dive you down into a rich experience of feeling blissful, at peace, pain-free, and not really wanting to achieve much at all.
The middle ground is green kratom, which can have both of those traits, giving you a slightly more rounded experience, but generally at a lower intensity for the same dose.
So all we can do is tell you to experiment here I guess. That’s what I did. Everyone is different, every batch of kratom is different, every experience is going to be slightly different. It also depends on how much energy, focus, euphoria, whatever, you want to achieve.
In terms of dosing the best kratom for energy and focus, I would work my way through the following brackets:
- A low dose of around 3 g to begin with
- Next step up is taking around 6 g
- A high dose of kratom will be up to 10 g
- An overwhelming dose will be above 10 g
So if you want a euphoric kratom high, an opiate-like kratom experience, I’d be taking close to 10 grams for your first time, and see how it goes.
If you want the burst of mental and physical energy, you’re talking around 3-6 grams. I found my sweet spot with white kratom to be between four and six grams. That gave me a huge rush of feeling great, feeling productive, feeling focus, and having bursts of energy.
