You’ve probably heard of “Bath Salts,” which are psychoactive stimulants with the Spice of synthetic marijuana. These drugs were easy to find and could be purchased at local gas centers or tobacco shops throughout the country. These drugs have been regulated by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). It is required to label the ingredients of these products at the product. Although producers of these drugs continue to find ways to circumvent regulations, it is much more challenging to purchase them now than it was a year ago.
Have you known about the craze (a new legal drug) hitting a gas station near your home? Kratom is the name of the newly legal drug. Unlike bath salts, Spice, or other synthetic drugs that are on the radar of DEA, Kratom is entirely organic and has not been listed as a controlled substance.
Kratom is the new name of Mitragyna Speciosa leaves. They look similar to large, smooth oval mint leaves. These trees are native to Southeast Asia, and their leaves have been used for centuries as traditional medicine in Thailand and other Asian countries. The United States isn’t the first to use Kratom. Kratom has been around for many decades in herbal markets, used as a tonic for many purposes, but it has slowly gained popularity as one of the top legal drugs among the Bath Salt, Salvia, and Spice crowd.
They range from sedation, pain relief to intense euphoria. There are several side effects associated with opiate use, such as nausea, dizziness, and constipation. In extreme cases, hallucinations, delusions, and hallucinations.
You can buy Kratom in raw or ground leaves, which can be smoked, brewed for tea, or used as a gel cap. Prices vary depending on the strain and potency. A five-gram packet costs $15-50, while 50 capsules cost $18-25. The average dose is between 2 and 10 grams.
According to the DEA, Kratom is a “Drug or Chemical of Concern.” It has been banned in several countries, including Australia, Finland, Denmark, Poland, Lithuania, and Malaysia.
It was impossible to identify Kratom through drug tests until recently. However, a new urine test has just been developed that can isolate critical components of the drug.
Kratom has its advocates. They argue that Kratom can be used safely to relieve pain, increase energy, and reduce anxiety. To learn more about Kratom and the reasons its supporters fiercely defend it, visit the Kratom Association.
Kratom supporters claim that there is no evidence that Kratom can be addictive. However, this is not true. The “Josai International University,” Japan, and Chulalongkorn University, Thailand, conducted a 2004 study examining Kratom’s tolerance and withdrawal symptoms in mice. They found that tolerance to 7hydroxymitragynine, which is thought to have addictive properties in Kratom’s chemical, developed “as happens to morphine” and evidence of cross-tolerance. MSNBC reported that Kratom use has been increasing in hospital emergency rooms.
It is good to be cautious before putting Kratom in the same basket as Spice and Bath Salts. At the very minimum, a relatively safe drug when compared to other synthetic chemicals known to be toxic. It remains to be determined if Kratom is worthy of a DEA-exempt existence in legal substances on the market.
