This was such an important topic for me to cover that I even went out of my way to make a video about it. I even through in some short clips for social media channels. This is something that needs to be said and understood if you value kratom and desire it to be or remain legal.
Why do I do the above ritual? Why do I happen to think the moon holds some God like power? In Shakespeare’s “Othello,” Emilia tells Othello that the moon has “drawn too close to the Earth” — and driven men insane. The idea that full moons hold power, can disrupt emotion state of minds, and might even cause physical illness or changes, is a very strong belief for generations and even in today’s generation. Here are some recent research that is beginning to confirm some truths to those ancient rumors.
In Shakespeare’s “Othello,” Emilia tells Othello that the moon has “drawn too close to the Earth” — and driven men insane.
The idea that full moons hold power, can disrupt emotion state of minds, and might even cause physical illness or changes, is a very strong belief for generations and even in today’s generation.
In fact, one study says that nearly 81 percent of mental health professionals believe that the moon has the power of making some people ill.
Here’s what researchers have found about the moon’s effects on human bodies and behavior.
You may have heard of the seed called, Akuamma. It is usually ground up in powder form because these are not seeds one can pop in their mouth like sunflower seeds. I made the mistake in buying the full blown seeds and wasted my freakin money. Don’t buy the seeds. Buy the powder either by itself or in capsules. Now, what is so great about Akuamma seeds? Well, it is commonly known to help control pain and relief some of the discomfort pain causes. It works with the same opioid receptors, but there are so many other benefits it has. The seeds contain various types of alkaloids which include akuammine and pericine.
I often times mingle both my real life and kratom life together, sharing with you little pieces here and there. I rarely throw in my spiritual practices in the mix, but as society continues to go down a path that seems to greatly lack this once popular mindset, I am beginning to feel the need to talk about it at least every once in a while.
Hirsuta is like kratom’s little sister. Mitragyna Hirsuta is apart of the same family, just like the coffee bean (Rubiacease family). The leaves are green with a light green/white veins. They are smaller than the kratom leaves in size, but hold a similar structural appearance. It too is native to the Asian Pacific area (Cambodia, Malayasia, Vietnam & Thailand), and it pretty popular over there right along side kratom.
Whether you are a kratom guru or a newbie, consuming kratom can be done in a variety of ways. Some hate the taste and don’t consider it an enjoyable drink, no matter how it’s prepared. They would rather toss it back and be done with it. Others are ok with the taste and like to come up with different ways to consume the tea.
