Kratom (also known as Mitragyna speciosa) is a tree from Indonesia whose leaves produce a psychoactive effect. The leaf of the kratom tree is known to produce a full spectrum of typical opioid effects which can range from stimulation to sedation, and even both in some cases. It is commonly used as a substitute for opioid painkillers, a sleep aid and as a recreational drug. Personally, I favor Kratom over cannabis any day of the week. It gives a pleasant, but clear headed high. It allows me to function without any cerebral, paranoid, or trippy effects. It also greatly alleviates any back pain I may have during the day. Warning: Follow instructions on the bottle. The recommended dosage for ingestion of Kratom is 1 gram. Each capsule contains roughly .5 grams, so I suggest starting off with one, and easing your way up to two or three. Make sure to ingest on an empty stomach.
