Kratom, also known as Mytrogena Speciosa, is a plant that grows in South-East Asia.
From the coffee family, it has been used in the traditional medicine of Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, and China since ancient times. In small doses, it is a stimulant used by day laborers to increase productivity and reduce the effect of pain at work.
At higher doses, it reduces chronic pain. It binds to opioidmu receptors, but chemically, it is not an opiate or opioid.
Fast forward to 2016 in the USA. It is now a popular supplement used by thousands of people to reduce the effects of chronic pain, and to fight depression and PTSD. There have never been any deaths resulting from it and it is impossible to overdose because if one consumes an unhealthy quantity, the body vomits it up.
Kratom has helped people who have suffered from dependence on opiates to taper off of them finally. It also helps former addicts deal with cravings. It has been used for many years under the radar but everyone knew that at some point the corporate establishment would interfere to maximize their profits.
This supplement is cutting into the profits made by the Pharmaceutical corporations. The Pharmaceutical (which means sorcery in Septuagint Greek) corporations sell opiates which have caused addiction & abuse epidemics such as: Oxycontin & Percocet.
