Basically, Kratom (or Mitragyna speciosa) is an amazing plant that remains legal because of its lack of publicity, toxicity and medicinal uses in rehab. This is an amazing legal high that is very similar to opiates and can even considered an opiod. As much euphoria as this plant can produce, at larger doses, It is less addicting than codeine regarding cravings and withdrawl, but of course that doesn't at all mean do it everyday.

If this plant is used wisely and in moderation it can give you many different effects within 2-3 hours starting with stimulation and gradually changing into an opiate high with very minimal withdrawls. Of course wisely refers to dosage which is usually between 5-14 grams depending on how much of a tolerance you have to opiods. A little more might cause unpleasent side effects that might ruin the experience, most common being nausea.

The standardized powdered leaf (best imo is bali) is the most common method and can be mixed with hot water to make a tea or just mixed with a type of juice can okay, whatever helps get it down. There are also resins and extracts, its all about preference, i know people who have gotten effects from smoking, but usually you get close to none. People that really despise the taste buy empty gel-capsules and fill them up with the powder. This powder is very bitter, but bearable and the warm fuzzy feeling definitley makes up for it.

Again, be wise! don't bring attention to it, always use moderation. please dont fuck it up for the rest of us. oh and im really baked right now so if any of this didnnt make sense, u kno.

Kratom refers to the plant Mitragyna speciosa Korth., a tree indigenous to Thailand; it is mostly grown in the central and southern regions of the country, and only rarely in the north.

The effects of Mitragyna speciosa are described as being a combination of both stimulation and sedation. The stimulatory effects may be shorter in duration than the sedation effect, coming on faster and fading sooner. Kind of like an opiate high.
I'm going to drink a little Kratom tea and chill.

Kratom (or Mitragyna speciosa, Urban Ice Organics) has been consumed for hundreds of years in Southeast Asia, but it is relatively new to being consumed in North America. It is usually taken in either capsule form (pills), mixed in water (tea), or by directly placing the powder in your mouth and immediately taking water/liquids to wash it down (toss and wash). It is not smoked or injected intravenously.

There have been ongoing movements to keep kratom legal in the United States of America due to the reported helpful uses but "lack" of scientific study. The kratom documentary called "A Leaf of Faith" directed by Chris Bell provides tremendous insight and educational information about the uses of the plant and the current political climate it faces.
Wow, have you heard of kratom? I've been taking it recently and it helps alleviate my pain after surgery and I don't feel addicted compared to the narcotics the hospital gave me.

No, I haven't heard of it before, does it really help?

Yes, it does! You should watch the kratom documentary "A Leaf of Faith". Chris Bell and the crew did a great job and I learned so much about kratom and am using it to improve the quality of my life.

A leaf that is primarily used for opiate withdrawals. Many swear by its power to get them off of painkillers. Kratom in itself has mild withdrawals that are very similar to the withdrawals from coffee.

Kratom is virtually pointless to try to get a "high" from. At any dose where you would feel anything, your stomach will so nauseated that you will swear to never do it again.
"Man I think I'm addicted to Oxycontin."

"Try some kratom, it got me off of painkillers."
