Kratom is a medicinal herb, the leaf of which comes from the kratom tree known to the scientifically minded community by its Latin name, Mitragyna Speciosa. The kratom tree is, predominately found in the lush forests of southeast Asia and can grow 12 to 50 feet in height, with leaves dark green in color; growing approximately 7 inches in length and 4 inches in width. Kratom is a distant relation to the coffee and Yohimbe tree. Kratom has similar effects as coffee in lower dosage. Higher dosages produce phenomenal relief from aches and pains, relieves fatigue and can produce amazing results as an antianxiety and anti depressant helping you achieve a deeper rest.
Kratom has been used in Southeast Asia for thousands of years to combat pain and fatigue. Thai farmers typically eat the leaves on a daily basis to help fight fatigue, increase productivity, and reduce pain. Research has shown that Kratom is a very effective pain killer and is being used as an alternative to expensive prescription drugs. Kratom at higher dosage tends to have an opiate effect much like Hydrocodone or Oxycodone but with a contradictory effect of a stimulant at the same time. The active alkaloids in kratom interact with the same opioid receptors as codeine but to a lesser degree. Studies have shown that Kratom is actually being used to treat opiate dependency.
Kratom is completely legal in the US and has had no reported serious health risks or dangers. However, being that we are human and all unique in our physical make up, it is wise to use caution when first trying Kratom herb. Low starting doses are recommended until you know how your body will react to the new product.
