What Kratom Is. What Kratom Is Not.

Written By Kami Ann Davis 🌹🍃

Kratom is a coffee tree plant from Southeast Asia. Kratom is derived from a tropical evergreen coffee tree. Kratom produces leaves in which Indonesian farmers chew and suck on, for energy and pain relief, to help with working long hours in the sun.

Kratom is a weak partial agonist. Kratom does attach to the receptors in the brain, however; it doesn’t attach fully. Therefore, it doesn’t cause respiratory depression like morphine-like opioids. Naturally occurring Kratom is a safe herbal supplement. Kratom is a food, not a drug. Therefore, Kratom is a dietary supplement, ALSO. The FDA recognizes dietary supplements as food. In 1994, the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) defined dietary supplements as a category of food, which put them under different regulations than drugs. They are considered safe, until proven otherwise.

The American Kratom Association has been fighting the FDA, tooth and nail. They want to discuss with them, the science that backs this plant up and the fact that Kratom is a dietary supplement/food. Therefore, it should be treated as such. The FDA has ignored the AKA’s request for a meeting, for 757 days. That is a total of 2 years now ..that the FDA has ignored them.

What Kratom IS NOT ~
Kratom is not a deadly opioid. Kratom is not a full-agonist opioid. Kratom is NOT an opioid. Therefore, it does not produce the same withdrawals. Kratom is not addictive like morphine-like opioids. Kratom is not a synthetic substance. For the majority, Kratom does not produce withdrawals that are hard to deal with.

Kratom is not derived from any opioid plant. It’s not even in the same family. Nor, is it chemically made up the same.

Kratom is not highly addictive. Kratom doesn’t cause people to steal and beg, while taking it. Kratom doesn’t cause people to go to jail. So far, Kratom alone, doesn’t cause death or overdose. We are not saying it can’t. However, to date, there are no records of death or overdose. Kratom is NOT a drug.
