Default Kratom And Its Psychoactive Effect - 05-23-2013, 06:06 AM

Hello Everyone,

Kratom, botanical name Mitragyna speciosa, is a tropical tree native to Southeast Asia. This tree falls under the Rubiaceae family or more popularly the coffee family. The tree bears yellow flowers that bloom in clusters. But it is the leaves that are harvested for its medicinal properties. Traditionally consumed as a stimulant and an opiate substitute in Thailand and South-East Asia, Kratom leaves have a long history of human consumption. The psychoactive effect induced by the herbal extract proviedes a relaxed feeling of the mind and body; the user feels energized, elated and active, and it is this state of being that makes him work tirelessly irrespective of the heat of the tropical sun. Kratom is also hailed as a cure for opium addiction. In Thailand drug addicts smoke Kratom leaves to fight their opium urge and to manage their withdrawal symptoms. At best the effects are stimulant-like and at worst opiate-like. And so though Kratom is effective in fighting opiate addiction this substance itself can be addictive if abused.
