Kratom – introduction
Kratom is the name of the tree Mitragyna species, indigenous to Southeast Asia (Thailand, Malaysia, Myanmar, Indonesia, etc.) as well as the name for the psychoactive preparation that is done from the leaves of this tree. Kratom traditionally was chewed or smoked and used for making tea.
As for the chemical composition, Kratom is one of the “non-opioid” because of its sedative effect, although it can have stimulating effects.
The best kratom grows in Southeast Asia, and we know a little about its use outside of Thailand, Malaysia, Burma. The reason is that although people used it in major cities, its use is more common in rural areas.
What kratom was used for was a remedy for strengthening the immune system, pain, diarrhea. They used it as a sex stimulant (as well as the prolongation of sexual intercourse) as well as a common drug for the treatment of addiction. Improves blood circulation in the body reduces the symptoms of diabetes and is an excellent beverage for energy.
Effects of Kratom
When we use Kratom in small doses, it acts as a stimulant, but by increasing the dose can be very sedating. Many people compared it with the effects of caffeine, ephedrine, and even with the cocaine. A person might feel less tired, energized, motivated and also experience increased sexual energy.
It causes people feel more open, talkative. But some say that Kratom makes them feel somehow nervous. Stimulation and activity are reduced over time and feels a slightly sedative effect. It is also often the person may feel tired and relaxed but not sleepy.
Some reports mentioned that regular use of Kratom has a tendency to increase the stimulating effect at lower doses. Stimulating and sedative effects of kratom have a simultaneous action, but tolerance develops rapidly in a soothing effect, causing increased stimulation over time, even with lower doses.
The psychedelic-physical effects of Kratom are very complex and depend on the dose. The most common include stimulation, euphoria, talkativeness and stress reduction, relaxation and a slight drowsiness. As for effect on fatigue, can act as a remedy but it could cause insomnia.
How to avoid negative effects
Most of the report is positive and has an emphasis on a sense of euphoria, although constant use can lead to addiction in light psycho-physical abuse and irresponsible consumption. Negative reports that we read are associated with excessive doses, in patients who are dependent on the plant or combination with other drugs.…
