Kratom is indigenous to a handful of countries in Southeast Asia and has been used medicinally by the local populations there for centuries. Users in Asia report mild stimulant and pain relieving effects. It is very popular among the rural populaces that worked long, hard days in the sun doing physical labor. They find kratom very useful for relieving aches and pains while at the same time providing a boost of energy and mental focus. Many users in Asia chew the kratom leaves or brew the leaves into a tea. There is an ongoing debate in the United States about the safety and medicinal benefits of the kratom plant with each side of the debate holding vastly different opinions about its medicinal potential and its side effects/addictive potential. Millions of US citizens firmly disagree with the federal government’s anti-kratom stance.
Kratom In The United States
The popularity of kratom has exploded in the last decade as globalization has brought many products to our shores that have historically been contained within the local communities where the plant naturally grows. Many people in the United States have found kratom to be useful as a pain reliever and believe that kratom is an excellent alternative to prescription opiates. The FDA disagrees claiming the plant is dangerous and addictive. To date, the FDA and DEA have been unsuccessful in their attempts to ban the substance. The kratom community in the US is growing rapidly as many people firmly believe the dangers/side effects of the plant are grossly overstated by these government agencies. The American Kratom Association estimates there are roughly 4 million people in the US that use it regularly as part of their health regiment.
