Learning The Secrets About Supplements

Will Kratom Become Illegal in the U.S.? Although there already are millions of proponents of the safety and effectiveness of kratom, the herb is currently subjected to possible ban by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). According to the DEA, the fact that kratom contains two chemical ingredients in the form of mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine with psychoactive properties could mean it could be utilized in some way that’s similar to illegal drugs. Kratom is actually classified as an evergreen tree growing in the tropical regions of Southeast Asia, more specifically in the countries of Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar, and Papua New Guinea. Although kratom isn’t popular in the west, it is actually part of traditional medicine in Southeast Asia, where the native population has been using it since the 19th century. Nevertheless, there always will be some intrigue or even controversy as to the plant’s natural opiate and stimulant properties. Proponents of kratom in America argue that there is no reason to ban the leaves for the simplest reason that its use doesn’t lead to any “high” effect similar to that of illegal drugs. They even are quick to add that the leaves provide the most effective pain relief that even traditional drugs and medicine cannot give. Aside from relieving pain, kratom also was quite fast to spread the word that it can help in treating psychological disorders. In most instances, kratom leaves are turned to powder or consumed in tea form to get the benefits.

The DEA went further by saying that it wants those caught with the possession of kratom to be meted with the same penalties to those who are caught with illegal drugs such as heroin and metamphetamine.

Also, the same agency is saying that the intended ban of the plant is based on a poison control issue. Seriously, the DEA thinks kratom can poison humans? We would have seen hundreds of thousands of deaths by poison in Southeast Asia by now because of using it as medicine. Well, there’s no blaming anyone if ever kratom officially becomes illegal in this country since no one would want to take the risk of either fearing the falsely made information of it being addictive and poisonous or the fear of getting caught with mere possession of it. But one particular property of kratom that these so-called DEA experts cannot deny is the fact that its pain relief properties are attributed to alkaloids found in the leaves of the plant. And about that issue of the possibility of getting high when consuming excessive amounts of it, it is safe to say that there is no such thing as overdosing through the consumption of kratom. As a matter of fact, once the human body detects that it already has ingested too much of kratom, it naturally responds through vomiting. This means that there really is no reason to label this plant in the same league or classification to that of heroin or any other type of prohibited substances.
