What is Kratom?
Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) is a tree closely related to the coffee tree. It originated in tropical regions of Southeast Asia, but is now cultivated in many other climates. The leaves of this tree are used to make tea, while the powdered root is used in capsule or tablet forms for medicinal purposes. Kratom has been used for thousands of years in South-East Asia. The active ingredients are mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. Mitragynine is the dominant alkaloid, which gives Kratom its effects, while 7-hydroxymitragynine may act as an active metabolite.
Kratom is used in traditional medicine for various reasons. It was traditionally used to manage chronic pain, diarrhea, and also in respiratory diseases. Currently, in South-East Asia, Kratom is known as an analgesic (pain reliever). Wasalu Muhammad Jaco (W.M.J.) was one of the first to discover the analgesic effects of Kratom when he was trying to quit his addiction to opioids.
One study concluded that the compound mitragynine “reverses opioid-induced respiratory depression”. Another study supported the analgesic properties of Kratom.

Kratom has been used in South East Asia for thousands of years. It was first listed as a controlled substance in Thailand, Malaysia, and Myanmar in 1943. Since 2001, it has been illegal to sell Kratom for non-medicinal use in many countries. This has led to ample opportunities for other companies to start selling un-proven products that are not always safe or effective.

What are the risks of buying Kratom from unreliable sources?
Very unsafe. There are different types of Kratom that can be purchased. Some Kratom products might contain dangerous synthetics, mislabeled products, or could even be unsafe at all.
Many people don’t understand how to dose properly. What should you take? What dosage is safe? The best way to find out is through personal experience, but it’s impossible for everyone to know exactly what works for them. Just because something works for one person doesn’t mean it will work the same way at all times for anyone else.
In 2016, a UK man died from a Kratom overdose. He had taken a mixture of Mitragynine and 7-Hydroxymitragynine . At the time, he had been “warned by both his doctor and the government’s drug take-back scheme” not to take Kratom. He took it anyway, and ultimately ended up in ICU.
