Kratom Safety


Alcohol and kratom are both beneficial when it comes to lowering anxiety. Although there are some great benefits when consuming either one of these, there are also differences. Whether you choose to take Kratom or alcohol, you must keep in mind about the benefits and side effects of each.


  • Lowers anxiety
  • makes you more social
  • increase confidence
  • dangerous when consuming too much
    • not safe to function
    • damages the liver
  • empty calories
  • Hangovers
  • Bad Temper
  • Can potentially lead to death


  • Lowers anxiety
  • more social
  • feel happy
  • consuming too much at one go will cause nausea, headaches, upset stomach, bad temper, sleepy.


Kratom doesn’t make you as confident as alcohol would, this is due to the amount of alcohol consumed to the point of, “I don’t give a fuck any more…”

With Kratom you are more conscious and in tune with yourself without the negative thoughts of negative social consequences that runs through your head. This is mainly because you are reinforced with nothing but a great feeling of positivity and happiness.

Alcohol can have this affect on you too, but no one ever drinks alcohol in moderation to get the confidence they desire until they are or close to the verge of being drunk. This is not to say having one or two beers is a bad thing, you can have it once in awhile, but making a lifestyle out of alcohol is something that is unhealthy and can potentially shorten your lifespan.

I predict that in the far far future, Kratom will be an important part of many people’s lives. (If it doesn’t get ban before then)


Being In Control Of Your Actions


Your actions are based on the decisions you make on a daily basis. In other words, your actions control the outcome of the situations you put yourself.

Being in control of your actions isn’t something that alcohol can give you. Your mental focus is no longer there and a lot of stupid decisions are made that you’ll regret later on.

A benefit that Kratom has over Alcohol is that you’re comfortable in your own skin while being fully control for the decisions and actions that you make.

Why bother going through the whole “act like a stupid drunk” when you can be fully aware and in control of what you do and feel good about yourself at the same time.

You wouldn’t want to look back 5 years later and your family and friends remember you as that guys or girls who did something extremely stupid.

Be in control, make decisions based on you, and not your lack of consciousness.


Health Benefits Between Alcohol and Kratom


Health is often neglected in our modern society with so many fast food, sugary beverages and chemicals that are used to make fat food much more addictive.

Besides all that junk, alcohol has lead to many deaths, not just from intoxication, but drunk driving as well.

We know that Alcohol isn’t good for your liver and stores up a lot of unwanted fat (Beer Belly). Another thing about alcohol is it makes you depressed.

Ever heard of people who became alcoholics because they hate life and feel miserable? Plenty of times, even in movies.

The only benefit to alcohol is its moderate use from time to time to have a good time and get rid of some anxiety. Other than that, you’re asking for a whole lot of health issues in the future.

Kratom allows you to be fully aware and functional and does not cause you to be intoxicated since it has no negative effects to your vital organs. It’s grown from a tree in Southeast Asia and its leaves are grinned to a fine powder. In other words, Kratom is organic and is like vegetables.

There are many people who have used it for 5 to 10 years and have had no long-term side-effects. It has enhanced life.


What We Personally Prefer


You already might have guessed it. My answer is Kratom. It’s overall good for any occasion and the benefits that it gives out weighs the bad side effects. You can consume it while not ever reaching a level where it could be life threatening or risk your health. The worst thing that can happen is you will have a headache and nausea. Alcohol on the other hand can be life threatening if over consumed.

Plus all of the bad effects and problems that may occur can be fixed easily.

You have control of what you are doing and saying while having a boost in confidence and happiness.

You can’t really abuse kratom because if you do than the side effects will hit and that’ll teach you not to do it.

You can safely operate a vehicle while on it.

It doesn’t have much calories so you don’t have to worry about gaining weight.

You don’t have to take much to get the effects.

It’s easy to keep the tolerance low.




Alcohol is great sometimes, but don’t overdo it.

If you have an option to choose from Kratom and Alcohol, always choose Kratom. We don’t need more drunk people falling flat on their face every night out to the bars. Plus, think about others when you’re driving.

Stay alert and aware. Your actions are your responsibility.

P.S: We recommend that you buy Kratom from HappyHippoHerbals. They have always offered the best and freshest Kratom on the planet. You can check out reviews on our favorite strains on the right hand side bar ——>

Kratom and its affect on your Libido vary from person to person. Some say that after taking Kratom, they noticed that there was a drop in their libido.

My brother “ChiHao” does notice a slight decrease in libido from Kratom. He was taking Kratom three times a day, every day. He was also properly rotating the Kratom strains.

The good news is that he was able to regain his libido when he started taking less frequently and giving himself days off. Instead of taking 3 times every day, he reduced it to once or twice a day for 4-5 days a week with 2 days to refresh and take a break.

The libido comeback is usually on the higher end.

My brother like to describe it as “having a raging boner” throughout the day.

I find that Kratom helps me relax, I am happy, and I notice little to no changes in my libido if anything it probably increases it. That’s also because I don’t take too much and I give myself days off from Kratom.

Also to note: Kratom is an opioid and opioid do report to have some decrease in libido.

Is It Actually The Kratom or Something Else?

I like to say that Kratom does play a small part in it, but it could be something else if someone were to exaggerate the drop in libido, it could be many other factors that makes their libido low such as:

  • Hormonal Imbalances
  • Depression
  • Medication/Other Drugs
  • Diet


Hormones have a lot to say about your libido, and if your hormones are out of place then it could be the main reason why your libido is low. I would recommend for you to get your blood work checked out if you did take days off from Kratom and see no increases in libido.


If you suffer from serious depression, it could impact your body’s function along with causing imbalances in your hormones. We recommend getting professional help. Although Kratom does help with depression and should be considered.

Medication/Other Drugs:

You may be taking other types of medication or drugs that mess with your libido such as alcohol.


I believe Diet has a lot to do with libido too, and most important out of all above. If you are eating food with lots of sugar, bad fats, simple carbohydrates, and drink nothing but sweet sugary drinks, you will definitely do lots of harm to your body and hence affecting your libido. The food stores today are filled with sugar and bad fats, and most people still don’t know what they are putting into their bodies.

It’s best that you stay away from the cereal aisle all the way to the soft drinks unless it’s whole grained non-GMO oats and tuna. Stick to the vegetables, meat, fish, and eggs.


Am I A Healthy Person?

If you are a healthy person, then it could be that Kratom is having an effect on your libido, and our only solution to that is to go off Kratom for fews days or a week and see how you respond to it.

It is most likely that your libido will skyrocket and “having a raging boner” or return to normal.

So yeah, take a break from Kratom from time to time.

If you go on several forums or google “Kratom and Libido”, you’ll notice the half and half. Some people notice increases while others notice decreases.

One that’s interesting is that it helps people last longer in bed.



I personally don’t have to deal with Kratom and libido because I take Kratom around 4-5 days and giving myself 2 days off from Kratom. This resulted in no differences in my libido.

If you’re a regular user who does take large amount on a daily basis and you notice a drop in libido. Take a few days off from Kratom.

P.S if you’re new to kratom and wanting to find out more about it check out our comprehensive guide to Kratom.

P.S.S If you’re in need of one of the best vendor for Kratom check out Happy Hippo.

That’s all guys,




Our answer is “YES”. When Kratom is taken by itself with no mixture of any other substances it is very safe.

Just so everyone knows, my brother and I are not doctors. We however have been using Kratom for over a year and neither of us have had any problems. We haven’t even gotten sick ever since.

Why we believe that Kratom is safe is because Kratom has not had any reports of death when it is taken alone without mixing it with other substances.

As recommended, Kratom should be taken by itself with no mixture of any other substances. It should also be taken 1-3 grams for beginners and can go up from 4 to 6 grams for more experienced users. It’s pretty much about taking the right amount to hit your sweet spot.

The worse thing that Kratom can do to you is:

  • Make you feel very very sleepy
  • Nauseous like getting sea sick
  • Increase Anxiety
  • Stomach Ache

You can easily prevent these small problems by not taking a higher dosage than recommended. I however wouldn’t mind feeling sleepy later in the night or on Sunday though :).

Can Kratom get addicting?

Is Kratom Safe?

I’d be lying to you if I told you “No”.


Because if you think about it, anything can be addictive and it doesn’t necessarily have to be about drugs or herbal plants.

Take the addiction to gambling as an example, people become addicted to it, and it isn’t a substance.

There are also people who are addicted to video games too. There are reported deaths from playing too much video games.

Funny fact is my brother and I use to be glued to the computer playing endless amount of video games such as World of Warcraft and League of Legends. We were indeed video game addicts.

We believe addiction has more to do about the person.

I’d like to say that we are not addicted to Kratom. Not one bit. We’ve gone weeks without it and felt fine. But when we do have it, we’re always feeling happy.

Kratom Has Been Used for Centuries

Is Kratom Safe?

People in southeast Asia, especially in Thailand, would chew the Kratom leaf. They have been doing it for centuries. Buddhism also used Kratom as a healing and meditation tool.

The reason for Kratom being banned in Thailand was more because of political issues, not because they thought the leaf was dangerous. Just so you know.

It is also founded that back in the old days workers who chewed Kratom leaves worked harder than those who chewed Marijuana leaves.

Kratom as a PainKiller and Mood Enhancer.

Is Kratom Safe?

My dad has had back pain problems recently when he tries to reach for something on the floor and has to bend his back.

I told him to try Kratom out and gave him 3.5 grams. The first 15-30 minutes he did not feel anything. Around 45 minutes later his pain was gone. Not only that but he seemed less stressed out about his back and was peacefully enjoying his night, until bed time.

I’ve also had some minor injuries from lifting heavier than I should, and Kratom masks the pain quite well.

People who have used Kratom for pain also say that they were in so much pain to even walk. By using Kratom allowed them to walk again.

For pain relief I recommend slow strains and moderate strains of Kratom. The fast strains are more for motivation and boost in energy.

Also, when using Kratom as a pain reliever you can keep your tolerance quite low by rotating Kratom strain which we also talked about in our guide.

Comparing to prescribed painkillers you can only take the painkillers for so long that you’ll have a higher tolerance, thus need more prescribed painkillers.

If you can properly rotate you Kratom Strain, you will only need to use Kratom for pain anytime you want without building up a tolerance to it.

Final Note: Is Kratom Safe? To us, Yes it is.

So there you have it. our experiences with Kratom for over more than a year has led us to believing that it is safe when taken by itself and not mixing with any other substances.

Kratom has helped many people ranging from painkillers to anxiety, depression, uplift mood, and productivity.

Again we are not doctors and can only give you our thoughts from our experience.

We hope this has helped you.

Until next time.
