Kratom( Mitragynaspeciosa ) is a tropical evergreen tree in the family of coffee. He is native to Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia and other countries of South Asia. Leaves or extracts from leaves were used as a stimulant and sedative. Also reported was the treatment of chronic pain, digestive diseases and as an aid to the abandonment of dependence on opium.However, there was not enough clinical trial to help understand the health implications of this element. It was also not approved for medical use. Read on to learn about what is known about this element.
Why and how do people use it?
In low doses, a high quality kratom is reported to work as a stimulant. People who use low doses usually report that they have more energy. They are more vigilant and feel more sociable. In high doses,this element was reported as soothing, causing euphoric effects, and dulling emotions and sensations.The main active ingredients of kratom are mitragynine alkaloids and 7-hydroxymetragynine. There is evidence that these alkaloids can provide analgesic (analgesic), anti-inflammatory or relaxing effects on the muscles. For this reason, this element is often used to alleviate the symptoms of fibromyalgia.
Dark green leaves of a plant are usually dried and crushed or crushed. You can find enriched kraut powder, usually green or light brown in color. These powders also contain extracts from other plants.Kratom is also available as a paste, capsule and tablets. In the United States, Kratom is mainly brewed as a tea for self-control of pain and the abolition of opioids.
According to the European Monitoring Center for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA), a small dose that causes stimulant effects is only a few grams. Effects usually occur 10 minutes after ingestion and can last up to 1 1/2 hours. These effects can include sedation effects where A large dose of 10 to 25 grams of dried leaves can cause sedation, feelings of calm and euphoria. This can last up to six hours.
Why is this contradictory?
Kratom has not been studied deeply, so it is not officially recommended for medical use. Clinical studies are very important for the development of new drugs. Research helps to identify consistently harmful effects and harmful interactions with other drugs. These studies also help to determine the doses that are effective, but not dangerous.this element has the potential for a strong effect on the body. Kratom contains almost as many alkaloids as opium and hallucinogenic fungi. Alkaloids have a strong physical effect on people. Although some of these effects may be positive, others may be cause for concern. This is all the more reason why additional studies of this drug are needed.
The results of one study confirmed the addictive properties of mitragynine, the main psychoactive alkaloid of high quality kratom. Dependence can often cause side effects, such as nausea, sweating, tremors, inability to sleep and hallucinations.In addition, the production of kratom was not regulated. The FDA does not control the safety or purity of herbs. There are no established standards for safe production of this drug.
