What Is Kratom?

Kratom, also known as Mitragyna Speciosa, is a tree native to Southeast Asia. Kratom leaves have long been used for medicinal purposes in the region, particularly in Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Papua New Guinea.

Research shows that some compounds found in kratom can attach themselves to nerve cells, just like opioid painkillers, and create a similar effect in your brain. Due to its natural effects, kratom has become a popular option for a diverse range of uses, including elevating mood, enhancing physical endurance, relieving stress, and much more. While kratom and opiates bind to the same receptor sites in the brain, kratom contains no opiates. Kratom is a naturally occurring supplement. It is not an opiate nor a drug, and it’s free of any synthetic substances.

Kratom is currently legal in the United States at the federal level. However, due to its potent effects, some jurisdictions have placed restrictions on kratom use and commerce, while a few other cities are pending legislation regarding oversight and regulation of the plant

What Are the Benefits of Kratom?

Kratom provides users with a wide range of benefits for various wellness needs. The specific benefits of kratom will vary depending on the dosage (how much you take) and the variety of kratom you are using. Some of the most common types include red vein kratom, green vein kratom, and white vein kratom. Some kratom strains are known for having strong stimulant effects, while others are associated with feelings of calmness and euphoria. Overall, different dosages and strains of kratom can help promote:

  • Energy
  • Focus
  • Stress relief
  • Calmness
  • Feelings of relaxation
  • Euphoria
  • Relief
  • Mental clarity
  • Alertness
  • Sleep support

The effects of kratom are usually felt within 10 minutes after ingesting it. The effects of kratom can last anywhere from 90 minutes to 6 hours, depending on the strain and dosage you decide to take.

How Is Kratom Used?

Historically, traditional kratom remedies have been made from the plant’s leaves. These can be chewed, smoked, made into teas, and even used as an ingredient in everyday cooking. Today, most kratom supplements are still made from the leaves, but they are ground up in pills or sold as a powder, which can be mixed into foods and beverages. Because brewing kratom into teas or using it in food may lessen the plant’s overall effects, kratom capsules and powders are generally considered the best options in terms of bioavailability.

How to Choose the Right Strain and Dosage

Choosing the right strain can make a great difference in your personal kratom experience. For example, white strains have stronger energizing effects, while red strains are mostly known for their relaxing properties. Additionally, kratom creates different effects at different doses. Typically, low doses act as a stimulant, while high doses may bring out more of the plant’s sedative-like effects.

Ultimately, the appropriate type and dose of kratom will depend on several factors such as age, gender, health, and specific wellness needs. Having said that, it is always recommended to start with a low dose and gradually work your way up. It is also recommended that users follow relevant directions on product labels and consult with healthcare professionals before using.

Is Kratom Legal?

Since kratom is relatively new in the United States, its legal status is currently in a legal grey area. While kratom supplements are legal in most parts of the country, some jurisdictions have placed restrictions on its use, possession, and/or cultivation. There are currently six states in which kratom is considered illegal. There are also a few cities and counties in legal states where kratom use and possession are limited or banned.

Why Is Kratom Illegal in Some Places?

Because of kratom’s opiate-like interaction with nerve cells, authorities in certain countries believe taking kratom may pose similar risks. That is why kratom is considered a controlled substance in Malaysia, Thailand, Australia, and a few European countries.

In 2016, the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) proposed banning kratom at the federal level, but thousands of scientists, doctors, and law enforcement officers opposed the ban, resulting in the DEA dropping the proposal.

Despite concern from authorities, kratom remains largely safe. Reported side effects often include mild symptoms like nausea and constipation, and no fatalities have been linked to kratom. While kratom is still being studied in the U.S., numerous papers have been released supporting kratom and its potential benefits. One of the most comprehensive studies conducted so far shows that kratom’s potential for abuse and dependence is no greater than ingredients like nutmeg, chamomile, and guarana.
