Kratom is the leaf of a tree, known as Mitragyna speciosa, a tropical evergreen native to Southeast Asia. It grows naturally in Malaysia and Indonesia but is cultivated in Thailand. Its leaves have been used by natives of Southeast Asia as a cultural stimulant and have been used as a way to increase endurance and ease physical pain.
Kratom is legal in most countries around the world. It is not a drug or an opiate. Kratom is not a synthetic substance.
There have been no deaths reported that occurred from the consumption of Kratom.
If you do not mix Kratom with drugs or alcohol, Kratom is safe. Even in high doses, Kratom does not cause respiratory failure. Kratom contains no opiates but it does bind to the same opiate receptors in the brain. That is why it is so successful in opiate addiction withdrawal. By the way, chocolate, coffee, and exercise bind to the same opiate receptors in the brain.
According to the American Kratom Association, there is no more potential for “substance use disorder” than caffeine. They point out that Chamomile, St. John’s Wort, and nutmeg are dietary supplements that are comparable to kratom in terms of the potential for addiction and there is no basis for classifying kratom like heroin or LSD.
Kratom has been known to have positive results with:
Boosting the immune system
Increasing energy and focus
The dose comes down to what you are trying to achieve. You can first start out with a smaller amount and see if it helps you. It will then be easier to determine from there as to how much you will need to get the effect you want. You can build up a tolerance to it so you should try not to use it frequently and not exceed a certain amount and only you will know that amount.
