Something that I haven’t experienced personally, though I know of several people who know otherwise, is that kratom can be effective for depression. Because I don’t suffer from depression, it is difficult for me to accurately empathize, though I know that kratom has had some great effects on mood for me, even long-term.
For those of you who suffer from depression, I highly suggest using a white vein strain as those seem to have the most profound effects for depression, even with long-term usage. Red vein and some green vein strains can be too sedative and create a tolerance over periods of time, making them less effective for this purpose, especially if your energy is already low.
Both Maeng Da and Thai strains can be effective, though I would only suggest them for short-term use in depression due to their strength and potential for creating tolerance.
