Kratom is a substance that originated from the tropics of Southeast Asia.
Most people say they’re quite similar to cannabis because their leaves contain chemicals with various psychotropic effects. These may include polyphenols, flavonoids, and multiple glycosides.
The chemical compounds found in kratom are considered a potent opioid replacement, though it’s not as powerful as other types of opioids going around the market.
Initially, kratom was taken by workers around Southeast Asia to enhance their labor even under the scorching tropical heat.
Today, most people around the United States of America have been using this drug for recreational purposes – somehow like marijuana or cannabis.
One of the most common questions we get asked is this: is kratom a potent drug, and can you get addicted to it?
The simple answer to this question is yes.
Yes, you can get addicted to kratom as it’s still a substance that produces mind-altering sensations once taken.
Kratom produces an effect similar to marijuana, but these two substances vary in more ways than one.
Another thing that makes kratom more sought after around the country is that it is legal.
Unlike marijuana, that’s just legal in some states around the country.
However, most people who want to try kratom have to remember that this drug isn’t approved by the FDA. This is why there are still some risks when you take it, and it still isn’t advisable, as you can get highly addicted to kratom if you’re not careful enough.
Some of the side effects of kratom are the following:
- Bone Pain
- Dry Mouth
- Loss of Appetite
- Thyroid Problems
It’s still best to stay away from this drug, even though it’s not as powerful as most illegal substances on the market.
