Kratom is a large tree native to Southeast Asia.
Those who used kratom as a natural antidepressant also attribute stimulating, energizing properties to it. Kratom also contains alkaloids found in the Peruvian cat's claw plant, which are strong immune system stimulants (immunomodulators) and lower blood pressure. Kratom is recognized by the FDA as an opioid.
Traditionally, kratom leaves have been used as a stimulant by peasants in Southeast Asia. Kratom has also been used to treat hypertension, cough, and diarrhea.
Kratom has the ability to alleviate withdrawal from alcohol and opiates, since the mixture of alkaloids contained in it is an μ-receptor agonist. The analgesia caused by it, according to some reports, is several times higher than that of morphine. In many countries, people suffering from cancer, instead of prescribed chemicals, take decoctions or extracts of kratom.
A strong decoction of kratom (more than 10 grams of dry leaves per serving) has a pronounced analgesic and sedative effect, if the required dosage is exceeded, blurred vision, nausea, and vomiting are possible. A weak decoction (about 1-3 grams) has slightly stimulating properties similar to caffeine, without side effects (such as heart palpitations, etc.), relieves mild pain, helps to focus on any type of activity, increases physical endurance.
The duration of analgesic action is approximately 4-5 hours, stimulating - 2-5 hours.
