Kratom is a legal recreational plant and tree form of opioids and it is illegal in some states. It comes in a capsule and or pill. Sometimes it comes in many forms including leaf form or gum and teas.
It basically does the same thing as opioids and act as a pain killer and stimulates your mind. Some sites and or products have not for human consumption on them.
Some say it increases your energy and alert system instead of making you woozy and drowsy. It also helps those that are on drugs such as heroin, and opioids withdraw since it still feeds their body the things that they are needing and wanting.
People with anxiety, depression, and pain also uses it to help them cope.
I personally would say take it at your own risk. It causes hallucinations, seizures and many other things. It has the same kind of effect like opioids and any other drug legal or illegal that you take to be honest.
It also kills people if you take other drugs, medicines, alcohol, caffeine and other things with it so please please please do your research about it before trying it.
Kratom can make you act like you are on hardcore drugs like cocaine, heroin, meth and basically any other drug when you are trying to withdraw so I see why they are banning it. It is not actually good for your body. You can withdraw from Kratom and it can become addictive. To me this sounds like the bath salt zombies that was happening.
Unlike Heroin and Meth there is no treatment for this.
