Some wild accusations and ridiculous statements are made about kratom. To cut through the deceptions, we’ll examine a few of the most ludicrous assertions made about kratom, generally from people who trust Big Pharma and dislike natural substances.
Like with anything in life, kratom is subject to extreme views both negative and positive. Kratom has to be researched by everyone who wants to explore its benefits, without worrying about any bad side effects or terrible addictions.
Many wonderful things in life upset the status quo, attracting envious attention from from competitive product producers — causing them to be the target of unfair criticism, false reports, and exaggerated stories.
Kratom is a member of the coffee family. It’s not some weird designer drug or recreational “get high” thrill to abuse. But those who fear how kratom might harm the profits of Big Pharma often try to scare people into staying away from kratom, while prescribing truly dangerous and potentially addictive drugs like Fentanyl, Adderall, Ritalin, Xanax, Tramadol, and Gabapentin.
As your knowledge and experience with kratom grows, you’ll more quickly and decisively identify nutty viewpoints about our beloved plant. To speed things up a bit, here’s a peek at five of the goofiest remarks ever made about kratom.
Kratom is just like heroin or cocaine.
No, kratom is a natural plant that, while it is said to have narcotic qualities, is not technically an opioid, nor does it seem to have anything like the addiction and withdrawal symptoms associated with street drugs like heroin, black market Fentanyl, crystal methamphetamine, or crack cocaine.
In addition, kratom uses tend to lead quiet, happy, productive lives. They don’t have to keep escalating their dose amount or frequency. They don’t have steal and sneak around and lie. They don’t have shameful guilt about what they use to solve certain issues. They can hold down good jobs and are good moms and dads.
Kratom has killed people.
No, kratom, on its own has never killed a single person.
When there are news stories that an individual died and kratom was found in the toxicology report, some media hacks want to focus on the kratom, while the presence of heroin, ecstasy, meth, alcohol, and other hard drugs was also involved in the death.
It’s not easy to abuse kratom or take too much of it. If you took a big amount, you’d probably just vomit it up and then rest with a headache and wobbles (a condition where eyes can’t focus and seem to bounce around, unsteady, uncomfortable).
Kratom use means you still just want to get high.
No, kratom users don’t really feel any super strong euphoric buzz. What kratom provides is a way to overcome certain issues, while gaining energy, good mood, and merry sociability. Users of kratom typically don’t experience a chemical thrill or artificial rush. They just feel normalized, balanced, and adjusted.
Anyone who tries to use kratom as just a party drug will be sorely disappointed. It doesn’t work that way. Kratom is targeted to specific areas of the human condition. As more research is conducted, we as vendors will be able to describe more definite benefits of kratom. Until then, we can share what customers say, in general terms, about their experiences with kratom.
However, it’s wrong to state that kratom users are just ordinary dope fiends. Kratom users occupy a whole other realm in life. They aren’t depraved, hedonistic, pleasure-seekers looking for new kicks. They tend to be serious students of nature, who enjoy the abundant goodness of mitragyna speciosa.
Kratom cures…… _____________
No, kratom, as far as science can tell us currently, is not a cure for anything.
Reputable kratom vendors will never make wild claims or medical promises about kratom. They will explain the vein color, region of origin, date of packaging, 3rd party lab tests, and other pertinent information about the kratom they sell, but will describe the products with dignified restraint and factual clarity.
Never tell someone that kratom is guaranteed to solve any problem for a person. For a few folks, kratom doesn’t seem to do much at all. This rare condition is not met with often, but like with anything else, some products just don’t click with everybody.
Never get someone’s hopes up high about how kratom will destroy what’s wrong and firmly establish health and happiness. Kratom is something that helps certain issues. People’s problems are varied and each of us has a unique system. What works well for one person may not be so great for someone else.
Feel free to share you own kratom experiences with others, but don’t exaggerate or make unverifiable assertions.
Kratom is technically an herbal dietary supplement and we hope the FDA classifies kratom as such and regulates it accordingly.
Kratom is poison.
No, kratom, according to current research, is entirely benevolent for most people.
Many medicines of Big Pharma have toxic qualities, and sometimes are so deadly that, even though they were approved by the FDA, not enough testing was really done. Consequently, they’re taken off the market.
Other plants that people use may be dangerous, even when they’re used for medicinal purposes, spiritual rituals, ancient traditions, or investigations of the properties of psychedelic, hallucinogenic substances. Too much of these, or misidentifying a plant and being deceived by a deadly look-alike, can be harmful or fatal.
Alcohol and tobacco have proven to be potentially unhealthy and detrimental to society in various ways. Even junk food, candy, pastries, and soda have their negative side effects and tragic life results.
But kratom? Not so much. Not at all, actually. About the worst thing that could happen to a kratom user who went overboard is wobbles, dizziness, nausea, and desire to sleep it off. Now this condition could be unsatisfactory and risky, but there’s nothing our research has discovered that could be harmful in kratom.
However, the definitive answer to kratom’s benefits and downsides has yet to be determined. Hopefully, the next few years will be very fruitful in adding to our knowledge about this wonderful plant.
