Another year (one brutal year at that) gone by, and once again, the holidays are upon us. Songs, shopping family, travel, gifts, merriment — you know, stress. Call it what it is: the holidays are a stressful time of year and it quickly becomes overwhelming dealing with all of it and trying to get through it in one piece. Heck, 2020 isn’t over and this holiday season is going to be, well, weirder than previous holidays.

Thanks to the coronavirus, travel and seeing family members is even more strained than listening to your uncle rant about politics at the dinner table while your aunt tries to tell you about the new pyramid scheme she swears isn’t a pyramid scheme. If you’re worried about making it through the holidays, kratom may be your best bet to relax in an all-natural way without resorting to too much egg nog.

For the purposes of relaxation, the best kratom powder and kratom capsules are of the red vein kratom variety. Red vein kratom is known for its calming, soothing, and relaxing benefits, especially when it comes to being used as a sleep aid. However, the right red vein kratom strains and amounts imbue a sense of peace and calm without drowsiness. Need to go gift shopping for the family members you only talk to once a year and don’t want to be “that person” who only gets gift cards? Sounds a bit stressful to try and guess what people would like, unless you enjoy some kratom tea before heading to the stores so you can keep a calm, cool, and collected demeanor as you shop and realize that it’s not the gift, it’s the fact you went out of your way to get something for them.

If you need to face the wilderness that is a department store this holiday season, Red Maeng Da kratom may be the option you’ll need. While it is one of the most potent kratom strains available, it provides a mental clarity boost to keep you going while also imparting stress and anxiety-relieving benefit. It is also a good choice if you’re familiar with kratom capsules and want something with a little stronger effect so you can make it through the holiday party (or Zoom call) with your family without wanting to take a nap on the couch before you even eat.

If you’re new to kratom powder and are just testing the waters, our Red Dragon kratom may be a nice way to ease into the natural supplement. It’s recommended that you take low doses of the kratom powder as higher doses of Red Dragon have been shown to give a more euphoric and energetic feeling, rather than a joint and mind relaxing calmness. Take it low and slow and you’ll be sure to feel your stresses melt away this holiday season and you’ll be able to make it through without a sweat.
