Mitragyna speciosa, commonly known as "Kratom", is a tropical tree in the coffee family (Rubiaceace). Like coffee, Kratom acts as a mild stimulant, an invigorating energy supplement, but only when taken in low doses. At higher doses, it causes a narcotic-like effect and functions as an opiate substitute.
Preclinical research has determined that Kratom’s physiological properties are mediated by several neurotransmitter systems—dopamine, serotonin, GABA—in addition to its unique interactions at the opioid receptors. But MG’s painkilling activity does not directly involve the cannabinoid receptor (meaning that Kratom’s MG does not affect cannabis receptors the same way), according to a 2012 study by Malaysian scientists.
Depending on the strain and quantity used, it can either be euphoric/stimulating, or very sedating.
Mitragynine (MG), the dominant indole alkaloid found in Kratom, is responsible for much of Kratom’s analgesic activity.
A potent analgesic, Mitragynine (MG) compound has a high affinity for the mu-opioid receptor but it is structurally different from other types of opioids.
Even more, these promising medicinal compounds can confer beneficial effects that differ from those of pharmaceutical opioids.
The two main active ingredients of kratom are the alkaloids mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. There is evidence that these alkaloids can have analgesic (pain relieving), anti-inflammatory, or muscle relaxant effects. For this reason, kratom is often used to ease symptoms of fibromyalgia. MG’s painkilling potency is equal to codeine.
Some of the Main Benefits of Kratom’s MG are:
Ability to treat pain, chronic pain (opioid alternative, not additive)
Helps to enhance mood imbalances
Relieve depressive tendencies
Aid for opiate withdrawal
Combats fatigue and tiredness
Boosts endurance of manual laborers
Stimulants Effects - According to the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA), a small dose that produces stimulant effects is just a few grams, 5 to 7. The effects usually happen within 10 minutes after ingesting kratom and can last up to 1 1/2 hours. These effects can include: mental alertness, sociability, giddiness, reduced motor coordination.
Sedative Effects - A larger dose of between 10 and 25 grams of dried leaves can have a sedative effect, with feelings of calmness and euphoria, which could last for up to six hours.
Side Effects - Reported side effects of long-term use of kratom include: potential addiction, constipation, nausea, lack or loss of appetite, severe weight loss, insomnia.
Legalities - The DEA and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officials view Kratom as a threat to public health, on August 25, 2016, DEA announced its intention to add Kratom to the list of illegal Schedule I drugs. Yet due to the huge amount of claims and disputes of hundreds of thousands of people who find it favorable to opioid, the made it legal for sale due to the incredible amounts of help and healing its brought to many getting off of opiate’s or seeking an alternative solution to pain killers.
