So, let me tell you a little about kratom

Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) is a leaf harvested from a large tree native to Southeast Asia. It is in the same family as the coffee tree. Although using kratom has been common throughout its native range of Southeast Asia, this amazing plant has remained virtually unknown outside of that area until the last few years. In Southeast Asia, natives chew the leaves fresh after removing the stems and veins. But users in other parts of the world are discovering the benefits of the dried or powdered leaves as well. Harvesters and farmers of this wonderful plant work under special guidelines and licenses of their respective governments. 

Kratom offers a distinctly pleasant relaxation experience without any of the usual intoxicating effects of other plant substances such as marijuana, which also carries the unfortunate risk of being illegal at this time. Some people also use kratom for its amazing pain management attributes.

Small doses of kratom are known to have a simultaneously stimulating effect as well as relieving anxiety and depression. Larger doses of kratom can have a sedating effect. Some users say that not only does a larger dose of kratom help them go to sleep, it's also said to give the user pleasant dreams – sometimes achieving the lucid dream state. While smaller doses of kratom make physical labor easier, even after a long day already filled with hard work. Taken later in the day can keep the user awake.

When using kratom, as with any substance the user is unfamiliar with, it's not wise to operate a motor vehicle or operate machinery, at least until the user becomes familiar with the dosage amounts for the desired effect.

Kratom is being investigated by researchers for its supportive role in treating opiate addicts and alcoholics finding it difficult to be clean and sober. The most desirable quality of this wonderful substance is how it seems to relieve the addict of withdrawal symptoms without creating a new dependency itself. Long-term users might experience a craving similar to the yearning a coffee-drinker might experience, were they to miss their morning cup. This yearning might last only a day or two, even for heavier users – and is far more preferable to the withdrawal symptoms of an opiate or alcohol addiction.

How do you take kratom? Most people simply take it in two capsules of 500 milligrams each, per dose. If it's in a crushed leaf or powdered form, some might prefer to make a tea by bringing a mug of water to a very low boil and steeping the powder or crushed leaves for 20 to 25 minutes and then straining the tea out through a coffee filter, along with some honey for flavor. The taste of this tea is very “grassy” and some might find it unpleasant. Others do not and rather enjoy it.

Those who neither have capsules nor like the flavor of tea find it's easily ingested by being stirred into applesauce or a serving of tomato juice or V8. Beginners might want to stick with one or two grams at a time until they're familiar with the blissful effects. Kratom, again, will NOT get users “high.” So, if this is your intent, be aware, you're simply throwing your money away. At most, its effects are similar to a strong chamomile tea.
