In our last article, we discussed the different strains of Kratom and the type of effect they elicit on the body. It is pertinent to note that each of these Kratom strains has a unique half-life, which makes it the best for certain disease conditions in the body. In this article, we shall take a look at what Kratom strains last longer and why.
What is Kratom’s half-life?
It is quite impossible to discuss the interaction of Kratom with the body cells and system without referring to its half-life. A half-life can be described as how long it takes a substance to be become active and start acting on the body. It plays a critical role in how long the substance lasts in or is expelled out of the body. The half-life of a substance also determines the correct dosage and the maximum benefit to be obtained from such a product.
Please note that Kratom is relatively new to the system; thus, only little is known about its reaction with the body cells and systems. At the time of writing this article, only a handful of facts is known concerning its effects on the brain and half-life. The half-life of Kratom strains is determined by the concentration of alkaloids in it. While Mitragynine has a half-life of 3.5 hours, 7-Hydrocymitragynine features a half-life of 2.5 hours. This means, on average, the effect of Kratom lasts between 5-7 hours.
Also, note that our genetic make-up, age, and immunity may also play a key role in determining how long the effects of Kratom may last. Let us take a look at the most commonly encountered strains of Kratom and how long they can last in the body.
