CBD Kratom: Is It Wise To Mix These Supplements?

Spread the love

Lately two organic supplements have been taking America by storm: CBD & Kratom. This article discusses if it is wise to mix these natural supplements together, and any potential benefits or consequences of doing so.

First off, it is important to understand what Kratom and CBD are. A previous article on Organic Health Adviser discussed how Kratom is perfect for anxiety, and how it is 100% natural. Indeed, Kratom is literally the leaf from the Mitragyna Speciosa tree without any further processing, so it is completely organic. Further, the reason that Kratom has so many benefits is it contains dozens of unique and miraculous alkaloids, with the primary alkaloids being Mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. These primary alkaloids induce opioid effects, which can include pain relief, warmth, euphoria, a mood lift, anxiety/stress relief, and sedation.

As for CBD, it’s full name is actually Cannabidiol, and it is an alkaloid from the Cannabis plant. The general point of CBD, and why it has become so popular, is that CBD can provide the stress relief and pain relief properties of Cannabis without the high. Essentially, almost all of the Cannabis high is due to Δ⁹-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and therefore by taking pure CBD with little to no THC in it, you can get the medicinally beneficial properties of Cannabis without compromising your sobriety. This makes CBD perfect for work, relieving chronic pain, etc.

Generally, I would recommend that you take these organic supplements separately, and even if you regularly use both of them you should take them at different times of the day. This is because both are powerful, and it doesn’t really make sense to add them on top of each other. Some side effects of that could include lethargy and powerful sedation, as well as not being able to think too clearly.

That being said, in a situation where someone is really in pain and Kratom or CBD alone are not enough, then mixing these supplements can be a good idea. However, if you are going to mix, start with much smaller amounts than usual since they will likely potentiate each other.

On a final note, it is important to make sure that you always get 100% pure, lab tested, and organic Kratom & CBD, in order to ensure that the supplements you are taking are completely natural, uncontaminated, and effective.
