What is Kratom?

Kratom is a strong medicinal herb. It is the leaf of the Kratom tree, which is indigenous to Thailand. Unfortunately, Kratom is illegal in its native land but it is completely legal in the United States.

In small doses, it is stimulating like caffeine, though with none of the negative side effects such as tension and headache. In high doses, Kratom crosses over into the brain to the mu-opiate receptors and functions as a potent painkiller and narcotic. It is comparable in strength to hydrocodone, the active ingredient in vicodin.

Kratom is commonly used to help individuals that suffer from chronic pain. Many prefer a natural solution over pharmaceuticals and for those without prescription drug coverage Kratom can be much more affordable.

Kratom also is a blessing for those dealing with opiate withdrawal. Kratom is of great help to individuals trying to taper off opiate usage.

If Kratom sounds like something that might work for you, Get Kratom is a high quality vendor selling premium powdered Kratom at a great price.

Even though Kratom is completely legal, it is not a registered supplement with the FDA. Because of this, sites like Get Kratom sell Kratom as an incense not intended for human consumption. Fortunately, individuals in the USA have the right to make their own choices about what they put in their body.

How do I consume Kratom?

Kratom is generally consumed as a tea, though it can also be smoked or eaten alone. To prepare kratom tea, boil water in a saucepot. Once the water is at a roaring boil, turn it down to low heat and stir the kratom in. Then, turn the heat off and add a lot of sugar or other sweetener. Stir a little and let it sit for about 10 minutes to let the kratom settle to the bottom. Then, pour your kratom into a pitcher, taking care to leave the powder at the bottom of the pot. Then, you can add more water and boil again up to two more times.

Kratom can also be prepared in a french press, which will filter out all the extra powder.

For someone inexperienced with kratom, I would recommend about 1 tablespoon of kratom, or 5.75 grams. This is a good dose for gauging how kratom works for you. Up to 14 grams is a common dose, but this may cause some nausea for some individuals. Some people have been known to take up to one ounce of kratom at a time but this is not recommended for the uninitiated.

Kratom is currently legal in all 50 States. It is illegal in Thailand, Myanmar, and Australia. Will Kratom ever become illegal in the USA?

It is all about the political climate. If there is no anti-Kratom hysteria, it will never happen. I just don't understand where the hysteria would come from. The DEA knows about Kratom but there is no push because there is no problem. I would hope that our elected leaders realize that there never will be a problem.
