What Is Kratom

Kratom is a native Tree of Southeast Asia (Thailand, Malaysia, Myanmar and elsewhere). Its full name is Mitragyna speciosa. Kratom is in the same family as the coffee tree. Kratom leaves have been used as an herbal supplement for hundreds of years, and has recently made its way to America. Traditionally chewed in leaf form by people in Thailand and the surrounding area, it can now be found encapsulated or as powdered leaf. Kratom is 100% legal in the United States, and is not detected by typical drug screening.

A Stimulant and a Sedative?

Kratom PlantAt low doses:
At a lower dose (depending on tolerance, a low dose is under 4 grams) Kratom is a potent stimulant. For most its effects are stronger then coffee, and with out the jitters associated with large coffee consumption.

At high doses:
At a higher dose (more then 5 grams) the herb is a sedative with mild to moderate euphoric effects. This is due to the active alkaloids found in the kratom leaf.

Common uses include:

- As a stimulant like coffee
- As a mood elevator
- As a pain killer
- Medicine for diarrhea
- As a treatment for opiate addiction and withdrawal.

Kratom for opiate withdrawal

Kratom is a blessing for those addicted to opium for the management of opium withdrawal. The alkaloids in kratom behave as a μ-opioid receptor agonist, emulating the effects of opiates. Those experiencing opiate withdrawal know how horrible it is, and would be surprised at how taking kratom alleviates almost all symptoms of withdrawal.

As with anything you put inside your body, the decision is yours to make, and an informed decision is always better then a decision made with out all the facts. Browse our articles and our forum to gain all the knowledge you will ever need when it comes to this wonderful, natural herb.
