What is Kratom?
Kratom is the leaf of Mitragyna Speciosa, a tropical tree native to South Asian countries like Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia. For centuries, these leaves have been consumed for energy, muscle fatigue, and mood upliftment.

How much Kratom should I take?
Like all psychotropic stimulants, your unique body chemistry is a great factor in how a substance will affect you. We recommend starting with a low dosage and working your way up from there.
What are the main compounds found in Kratom?
The two main chemical compounds found in Kratom are mitragynine and 7-OH-mitragynine. The primary actions for both compounds include the stimulation of serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine, and kappa opioid receptors.
Are mushrooms and Kratom the same thing?
No. Kratom is the leaf of the South Asian tree, Mitragyna Speciosa. This tree is native to Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia. Amanita Muscaria mushrooms are native to the northern hemisphere. In pop culture, this toadstool species is iconically recognized for its rounded, red tops with white dots.
Both species hold impressive psychotropic effects and have been used in various cultural generations for centuries. However, they do not contain the same reactive compounds or plant extracts.
Does Kratom get you high? What does Kratom feel like?
Though not specifically classified as a “high,” the unique effects of Kratom vary depending on the individual strain and one’s body chemistry.
At Modus, we utilize using three different strains of Kratom in our products.
· Maeng Da Kratom is known for its impressively potent effects. This strain is used for substantial energy boost, muscle fatigue, pain relief, and mood enhancement. Mang Da is recommended for those who enjoy a more powerful experience.
· Indo Kratom is primarily associated with blissful relaxation, pain relief, and mood enhancement. This strain is also known to mildly reduce anxiety and, in some cases, act as a sleep aid.
· Malay Kratom is known for its more balanced, even effects. Malay is known to reduce stress and uplift your mood. This strain also contains properties that boost energy without any jitters. Users often find it perfect for both relaxation and energetic purposes.
Of course, Kratom consumers must keep in mind that body chemistry, dosage amount, tolerance, and strain are all important factors in one’s individual experience with Kratom. For first-time users of any substance, we encourage starting with a smaller dosage and monitoring one’s reactions.
