Medicinal leaf can help overcome opiate addiction


Kratom (also refered to as Mitragyna speciosa) is often an option in opiate withdraws due to its active alkaloid 7-Hydroxymitragynine. It creates a relief similar to codeine depending on the amount consumed. Many individuals use Kratom as an alternate to pain medicine because of this.

As a tool for opiate addiction, Kratom offers many other effects with its use. Kratom is capable of producing up to three different effects depending on the amount consumed. At low dosage, around 2-6 grams, it creates a stimulating effect. Enabling the mind to become more alert, increasing energy, and sexual energy is also increased. At mid dosage, around 7-15 grams, effects start to become more sedative-euphoric-analgesic while minimizing the stimulating effect (you become less edgy). You will start to feel and look calm, become less sensitive to physical or emotional pain, and have feeling of a comfortable pleasure. At higher dosages, around 16-25 grams, you will increase the sedative-euphoric effects. At extremely high dosage, 26-50grams you will increase sedative-euphoric-analgesic effects simultaneously.

Dosage really depends on individual body chemistry; there is no perfect universal dosage. Each individual will have to experiment until they find the right dosage for them. A word of caution more is not always better. If you overdo your intake with Kratom you will just become physically ill, and possibly vomit. So use Kratom with the best intentions, and not to abuse it.  Just think of the negative effects like Tylenol in vicodin (except it won’t damage your liver) it’s there to prevent abuse.

I hope everyone enjoyed my brief coverage on Kratom. I personally use a mid-dosage of Kratom as a tea daily, and sometimes mix chamomile with it. If anyone is interested in Kratom, I usually purchase it from www.getkratom.com or you can just look for it at your local head shop. The taste is bitter, so you can add stuff like cinnamon, honey, or lemon to make it taste more desireable.

  5. @jeanjean yes, but most of them are manipulated and can cause harsh side effects. opiates in its own is derived from opium poppy, lol. I just wanted to make a post about Kratom specifically. I guess my intro is misleading, I'll remove it.
