What is Kratom & Get to know about Mmm Speciosa vendor review
Kratom (scientifically known as Mitragyna Speciosa) which is part of the coffee family, is a large tropical evergreen tree typically found in southeast Asia (mainly Indonesia and Malaysia). The leaves of these plants have been used, for many different medical purposes, for centuries. While kratom has an unfairly bad rap, which is mostly false by the way, many have successfully treated a myriad of issues. Including but not limited too:
- Crippling anxiety
- Debilitating depression
- Unmanageable chronic pain
- To treat a variety of addictions- namely opiate and alcohol addictions
- Increases mental focus
It comes in three different types or strains: red, white, and green. Each strain is determined by the vein color of the leaf and can be manipulated by the drying process (which is where the yellow and gold strains come from). While all kratom provides the same basic effects, each strain focuses on certain ones.
- Red- Pain relieving properties
- White- More of an energizing strain
- Green- is known for its mood-boosting qualities.
You can brew the leaves into a tea, pack it into a capsule, or grind it into a powder. In its powder form, it is typically taken like a ‘shot’ or mixed into the beverage of your choice. Contrary to popular belief, kratom must be ingested – ie: swallowed, for best results. While I am sure you could smoke the leaves, you wouldn’t be able to smoke enough to receive any benefits.
Interesting facts about kratom:
- In addition to its pain relieving properties, kratom is also known for being an immune booster.
- Also said to help ‘in the bedroom’ (libido boost)
- Managing your diabetes: the alkaloids have been shown to help regulate insulin and glucose.
- Boosts metabolism, thereby aiding in weight management and loss.
- Over 70% of the male population in Thailand chew between 10 and 60 leaves per day.
- Has been known to lower blood pressure.
Combating the False Opinions:
With what seems like a never-ending opioid epidemic, kratom could honestly be the light at a miserably long tunnel. There are so many negative assumptions, and most, if not all, are completely false.
Kratom is like Heroin– No. It is absolutely not. While it may activate the same receptors as opiates (heroin, pain killers) Kratom is not an opiate. It does not cause respiratory depression, which is one of the most common reasons people die from them. It does not cause a high (only a slight euphoria), and it is almost impossible to overdose on, as you are likely to vomit any excessive amounts.
People have died from kratom – That is going to be a big fat nope. Of the 40 something deaths that are being linked to kratom consumption, all of them were polydrug users or had a pre-existing illness.
Kratom users are robbing, stealing, pillaging the village (kidding), to pay for their kratom habit – Well, we have another no for you. I have yet to meet one Mitra-enthusiast that gets so hooked on kratom that they are willing to sell everything they have just to acquire some. Not only is it insanely cheap, it just is not that kind of substance. Which brings us to the next lie.
People are snorting and/or injecting kratom – Kratom is literally a leaf. If you were to attempt to inject or snort it, first of all, you are an idiot, secondly, it is not going to work. Kratom has to be ingested in order to have any effect.
Only junkies and/or lowlifes are using it – One of the most surprising things that we noticed about the kratom community, is that the majority of people that use this plant are high functioning members of society. Nurses, doctors, you name it, are using to curb cravings, or as an alternative to harmful pain meds. There is no shame in turning to a natural alternative in your time of need.
Kratom causes horrific withdrawals – Did you know that weaning off of benzos (ie: Xanax) can actually cause seizures? Yea, and news flash you can die from a seizure. While a regular user of kratom can experience withdrawals, they are nothing compared to many substances, including alcohol. Some of the symptoms of kratom withdrawals, according to daily users:
- Restless leg – This one is the most annoying in my opinion. I have also experienced restless arms, and they stink too.
- Hot and cold sweats – As if you had a fever.
- Loss of appetite – I was able to get my appetite back within a day or two.
- Runny nose – OMG a runny nose?!? Yea, buy some tissues.
- Diarrhea – Yes you will likely have some loose stools.
- Overall low mood – This only lasts about a day, and many reports no depression whatsoever.
That is pretty much it, and unlike opiates, these symptoms generally go away after a day or two. It has been described as having a mild cold/flu. Not pleasant of course, but much less dangerous than some of the alternatives. Please understand that these withdrawal symptoms usually only occur for heavy users.
Note: People who take less than 5 to 6 grams daily, rarely have any withdrawal. You can also avoid side effects by not using it daily, however, many do not have that option due to their actual need of it (chronic pain for instance).
The FDA at play –
The FDA has been raging a war on kratom, claiming that it should be in the same classification as cocaine and heroin, what??? Not even close. So why does the FDA want to ban this plant which has helped countless people lead better and more functional lives? The simple answer is money. People switching to kratom from more harmful pharmaceuticals means less money for these large companies. This is the general consensus of not only devout users but also a handful of qualified professionals, that have taken the time to actually find out what it’s really all about. Way back in 1943, Thailand banned kratom or ketum, as the natives call it. Thailand’s government admitted that they only did so because it was cutting into the profits of the sale of opium.
The AKA (American Kratom Association) was formed as a defense to having our beloved plant demonized. This organization fights daily to keep this supplement available to those who need it. We should have the right to seek natural alternative medicines. If you would like to donate to AKA, you can do so here.
Where should I buy kratom?
There are many options when it comes to buying kratom. Online and specialty shops (be careful of purchasing from a smoke shop – more expensive/questionable product) are the best way to purchase good quality, fresh, kratom. Specialty shops can be a bit pricey but will do in a pinch. We cannot stress this enough – do your research. There are shady sellers out there that have mixed their kratom with other substances. They do this to increase the chance of you buying from them on a regular basis. They also do not test their kratom which raises the risk of salmonella or other contaminants. Ideally, finding a reputable vendor online, preferably one who understands this plant, is going to be your best bet. After scouring thousands of reviews, we recommend Mmm Speciosa.
Why Mmm Speciosa?
Truly one of the best online vendors available, Mmm Speciosa only offers the freshest (and safest!) mitragyna speciosa. The quality is superior to most of the competition and their customer service is outstanding! One of the newer vendors on the market, Mmm Speciosa has firmly earned its spot at the very top of the list, of the best kratom vendors on the internet. They offer a range of different strains, from a number of different sources, so you’re sure to find at least a few strains that work well for you. Kratom has 25 different alkaloids, and every person’s chemistry is different so the type and/or dose that you will specifically need will depend on a number of factors such as history, age, weight, diet, and tolerance. The best way to go about it is to try a few different kinds, and see which works the best for you. Mmm Speciosa gives a 25g sample free with every order! If you spend $125 or more, then they’ll throw in three 25g samples, so a total of 75g free. So you get a variety which will help you find the right strain for you. You really can’t lose.
Mmm Speciosa only offers kratom that was grown by established sources in Indonesia that adhere to ethical business practices. They purchase crushed leaves and grind it themselves using a hammermill grinder for the finest consistency available on the market. This also eliminates the grittier texture that sometimes plagues powdered kratom.
Customer Service: Mmm Speciosa prides itself on keeping its customers satisfied. They completely back their products 100%. They very much encourage any and all feedback and they also do whatever they can to resolve any issues, no matter what it may be.
Mmm Speciosa only ship from Monday thru Friday. If you get your order in before the 2 pm deadline, then your order will ship the same day. They supply tracking numbers for every order. Depending on the courier you could get in 1 to 2 days.
Buy in Bulk:
They offer both bulk and smaller quantities. The more you buy the cheaper it gets. You can also mix and match strains. While they can be a bit more expensive, their consistency in quality is well worth the minor extra cost.
While all of the strains are top-notch, there are three that everybody seems to love –
Green Malay – Highly noticeable mood boost, decent energy. One consumer called it the best she’s ever had.
Plantation MD (Maeng Da) – Both energizing and mood-boosting with moderate pain relief as well. Multiple buyers claimed they absolutely love this strain.
Baik Bali – Reports of super euphoria and unbeatable anxiety relief. A favorite strain per this Redditor.
Pros and Cons:
- Best quality and consistency
- Excellent customer service – multiple reports of replacements being offered if unhappy with the product that they received.
- Sourced from reputable suppliers.
- Ongoing deal with 25g free on any order and they also do other promotions throughout the month. They are usually announced in the Mmm Speciosa newsletter.
- The price. Mmm Speciosa is a bit pricier than its competitors. However, there are multiple reports that you can get the same results from half the dose compared to other vendors. This would cut your usage in half and help you save money in the long run.
- No shipping on weekends. So if you get your order in after 2 pm on a Friday, it will not be shipped until the following Monday. In our opinion, this small hiccup doesn’t take away from the quality offered by Mmm Speciosa.
- They currently cannot accept debit or credit cards. Acceptable payments: Zellepay, ACH Bill pay, checks, and money orders.
It can get incredibly overwhelming trying to find a good, reputable, honest vendor. As kratom has gained more and more in popularity, more and more sellers are popping up, especially on the internet. The problem is that profit is the most important aspect, to some of the less reputable vendors out there. At the risk of sounding repetitive, please do your research. While kratom is a godsend for many people, it is imperative that you use a trustworthy source. You are putting this into your body, so you want to be sure that what you are paying for, is what you are actually receiving. Mmm Speciosa goes above and beyond to bring their customers the absolute highest quality product, and really look out for their customers. After all, a happy customer is a returning one. The product speaks for itself and it truly does justify the price. That old adage is true, you really do get what you pay for, at least when it comes to Mmm Speciosa. Happy burning and be safe!
Note – If you are looking for a legal high, this is not going to be what you are looking for. There are effects, but they are very subtle. With kratom less is more, start low, around 2g, and gradually increase your dose by 0.5g every 20 to 30 minutes, until you find your ‘sweet spot’.
