Kratom effects vary according to the ingested dose, low dose, generally, are euphoric and stimulant while a high dose is always sedative and narcotic. This is because the main alkaloid of Mitragyna speciosa, mitragynine, which at the same time has energizing and narcotic effects. Normally stimulatory doses are shorter than the sedative, before the effects appear and disappear sooner. Which effect predominates depends on the level in the blood and biochemistry of each person.
A stimulant level: At this level the mind is more alert, physical and sometimes sexual energy is increased. The ability to do hard monotonous physical labor is increased; one is more talkative, friendly and sociable. Some people find this more comfortable level.
A narcotic level: At this level analgesia occurs, becoming less sensitive to physical and emotional pain, achieving an overall very pleasant calm. If you lie on your back in a darkened room with your favorite music can get into a state of sleep-sailing and reverie, the same as both appreciate the romantic writers of the nineteenth century, only that they did not know the Kratom, and to reach them using opiates, most addictive and dangerous substances.
The effect of kratom usually last about six hours, the higher the dose, the greater and more lasting effects. Although the most important alkaloids are related Mitragyna psychedelic substances, there appears to be no psychedelic activity after consumption. The dominant effects are similar to opioids, including analgesia and antitussive; some compare the effects of codeine.
Although some cases are given dependency problems, mainly in Thailand, kratom is not habit forming if taken responsibly. If used occasionally as a recreational drug, rather than daily, there is virtually no risk of dependence or habituation. However, we must not fall into the habit of procrastination and take it every day. The kratom, like many drugs (alcohol, coffee, snuff …), if used daily for a long time can become a difficult habit to break. So we do not recommend taking Kratom every day, trying to space takes several days. Before you start experimenting with Kratom agree that the proposed limits. If ever you find it difficult to stay within those limits stop taking kratom immediately.
Health problems are unlikely to occur in occasional kratom users. Some users have reported minor nausea, increased urination and constipation as side effects. Like any drug or medicine, each person’s reactions vary and some people may be allergic to any component of Kratom or have any unusual reaction to the substance, even using it responsibly.
We recommend not using kratom too often: not more than once a week, and be preferably no more than once or twice a month. This will prevent any problems of habituation and will help you enjoy the plant more.
The combination of drugs is not a good idea. It is recommended not combine kratom with Yohimbine, cocaine, any drug similar to amphetamine action, or large doses of caffeine, the possibility of over-stimulation or increased blood pressure occurs. Kratom not recommend combining large amounts of alcohol, with benzodiazepines, opiates or any other depressant drug central nervous system. The risk that such combinations might cause over-sedation or even come to a possible respiratory depression (and possible death).
It is also recommended not to use kratom in combination with MAO inhibitors, such as Syrian Rue (Peganum harmala), Banisteriopsis caapi, Passion Flower (Passiflora incarnata) and certain antidepressants. . The combination of MAO inhibitor drugs with kratom, which contains monoamine alkaloids, has not been studied. But the reactions could be very serious.
Never use heavy machinery, drive or perform any other hazardous activity while under the influence of kratom. Even if you feel stimulated, rather than relaxed, drowsiness may occur without notice. Use your common sense.
Pregnant or breastfeeding women and children under 18 should not take any drug or medication unless prescribed. We strongly recommend to any woman who might be pregnant NOT use kratom.
Use your common sense when using kratom for medicinal purposes, such as Attention Deficit Disorder or mean depression, or addiction to opiates. It is very likely that you are not medical specialist, so we advise you to consult your doctor before using kratom for this purpose.
