Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa)

What is Kratom?

Kratom is a botanical product; harvested from leaves from the Rubiaceae (coffee) tree found in Southeast Asia for many years as an opium substitute and . Trees grow from 12 to 50 feet tall and approximately 15-20 feet wide.

The large leaves are traditionally used for their medicinal values and the two main alkaloids/compounds the leaves contain are Mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine among an array of other alkaloids (total 25 alkaloids). These alkaloids interact with the opioid receptors of the brain described as providing various effects including mood enhancement, stimulation, analgesic effects and overall sense of well-being to combat depression, anxiety and stress. Also known to help control alcohol, opiate and similar abuse symptoms, Kratom for detox and withdrawal is reported to ease taper concerns associated with blood pressure, diarrhea and increase anti-oxidant levels.

Although using Kratom is common wherever it grows throughout Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Papua New Guinea, this amazing plant remained virtually unknown outside of those areas until fairly recently. Kratom is structurally related to yohimbine, but the pharmacology is quite different. It contains many alkaloids that we are just now beginning to be understand the effects. Kratom has proven a remedy for acute opiate withdrawal pain for many people.

What are the effects of consuming kratom?

When consumed orally or chewed in leaf form its effects have been described as less intense but similar to the feeling of opioids. Kratom is described as stimulating at lower doses and more sedating at higher doses. Most would agree is far less powerful than opiate and far less additive.

The key to successful Kratom use is to only consume the product through opiate withdrawal phase, and without relapsing. Kratom itself is an Opiate replacement drug, so Kratom can be addictive as well. Kratom is as useful taper tool to address extreme narcotic withdrawal discomfort. Because it help you manage withdrawal pain and make it through the worst 3, 4 or 5 days. Be sure you only use it for 1 -2 weeks max because it can create dependency and that’s the last thing we want.

How Long Does KRATOM Stay in your System?

You may be wondering how long does kratom stays in your system?  Ground leaves of Kratom (Mitragyna speciose) come from a tropical evergreen tree from the coffee family (Rubiaceae) native to Thailand and other parts of Southeast Asia. Kratom leaves contain an array of therapeutic alkaloids, which are commonly ingested by chewing or in tea-like medicinal beverages. The Mitragyna speciosa plant and is widely considered a folk medicine. Most kratom strains contain no less than 27 alkaloids, some of which are natural muscle relaxers, antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, antidiarrheals, anxiolytics, and analgesics.

The most prominent alkaloid is mitragynine, which upon ingestion, creates a physiological response when in contact with a mu-opioid receptor (MOR). During this encounter, the mu-opioid receptor yields potent analgesic effects similar to detox tapper drugs like suboxone (buprenorphine). It is so no surprise that several people purchase Kratom as a means of treating chronic pain and/or inflammation, easing Suboxone withdrawal symptoms, and/or using recreationally.

In recent years, the popularity of Kratom has continued to increase largely because its medicinal properties are becoming more well known, and it is l in the U.S. It is also an appealing drug to many because it is unlikely to be detected on a standardized 5-panel drug test. Now specialized tests are designed to notice Kratom metabolites, leading large numbers of users to ponder how long Kratom stays in their system once discontinued.

We learned earlier; the elimination half-life is the amount of time it takes for 50% of the alkaloid content to be removed from the body. The fastest half-life of alkaloids found in kratom is around 7 hours. Using this information, kratom would take one day, 14 hours days to be fully eliminated.

The use of this substance has become a running trend that you should really avoid. Yes, it’s much milder than any opioid and nearly impossible to die from but, it’s far less desirable recreationally because it has a ceiling effect. Any opioid addiction is devastating on any scale. Countless users have reported disappointment with the buzz and much harder to deal with outcomes like effects of severe physical/psychological withdrawals that don’t match the high.

Many buyers have been deceived into purchasing bogus products like ”Krypton” Kratom because it’s readily available at paraphernalia shops and some convenience stores. Labels will read that it’s a highly potent kratom extract, but this is not true. First, it was Bath Salts. Then it was Spice and, more recently, kratom products that are anything but pure Mitragyna speciosa (kratom) powder. Krypton Kratom is not an enhanced kratom product but a tainted one that happens to contain Mitragynine. Krypton Kratom is not actually kratom at all. Rather it is a bastardization of what kratom is all about.

So, what’s the problem?
By comparison, most of the Krypton Kratom lab-tested has been found to contain only one alkaloid—Mitragynine. Even the Krypton Kratom samples that have been found to contain more than one of kratom’s alkaloids were also found to contain an inordinate amount of the prescription pain drug O-desmethyl tramadol, which is an opioid analgesic and an active metabolite that is produced in the liver after the consumption of Tramadol.
Most users say that they had to choose between any other opioid and kratom. They’d pick kratom, but that’s a slippery slope once you get into opioids, especially for opioid virgins looking to experiment. It is not some party drug. ”Stay away,” they say…

Kratom dosing instructions:

What’s the best type/strain/kind of Kratom is best for Opiate Withdrawals?

#1 – Maeng da Kratom – Maeng da is know to be very good for staving-off cravings and making it so your body doesn’t ache. It’s probably the strongest kratom and works well for opiate withdrawals.

Conclusion: Kratom has been proven by certain substance abusers as an effective withdrawal taper tool. The best product will be wild-crafted and harvested from mature trees located in the jungles away from any potential pesticides or insecticides to ensure the cleanest natural and organic product. Precautions should be taken to when attempting to self-manage any addiction. Professional detoxification treatment centers are highly recommended to minimize the discomfort, create the best environment for sustained abstinence and ensure patient safety.
