Kratom & you
Who uses Kratom? The answer to this question is simple: All types of people use Kratom. This medicinal herb is most commonly used throughout Asia, and more recently the western world has caught on to it as well. For the same exact reasons. I’ve witnessed many testimonies from individuals who use Kratom for many purposes and I would like to share some of them here in this article. Please read through these carefully and put yourself in the shoes of these individuals who are resorting to this natural plant to treat and/or cure many of their ailments.
Why do people use Kratom? People use Kratom for reasons ranging from treating chronic pain, stress , stimulant , anxiety, treating drug addiction and detox,sexual enhancement, weight loss/ weight management, depression, anxiety, memory enhancement and studies,…etc. Kratom has many uses for many different ailments. Many people who use Kratom used more severe pharmaceutical drugs to treat their illnesses, but having experienced far too many side effects, have successfully switched to Kratom. Many Kratom users had previously used every anti-depressant with little improvement and horrible side effects. Kratom, however, essentially cures my depression when used on a regular basis in small amounts. Kratom has also been used by many people as a cure for addiction to various drugs, even including hardcore illegal drugs. The benefits of kratom are vast indeed!
The unthinkable is happening; Kratom is being mis-categorized as a “dangerous street drug” and is being lumped in with a new generation of “synthetics” such as Bath Salts and other dangerous products such as “K2″. It’s already been incorrectly categorized and placed on Schedule I by 3 states. Arizona was about to place it on Schedule I in February of 2014, but theBotanical Defense Group intervened at the 11th hour and, with the help of your voice, got Kratom removed from the bill.

Without exaggeration, we have found over 150 studies that have been conducted in relation to Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) around the world. Much of the research is happening in its own country, in a concerted effort by researchers to reverse the ban in Thailand in 1943.
First and foremost, if there isn’t an agenda going into the study, there is one overwhelming conclusion that every researcher is reaching: Kratom does not belong in Schedule I, period.
Kratom has already demonstrated it’s vast medical potential in studies that have shown it to be a powerful anagelsic. To quote from the Botanical Legal Defense Newsletter: “Current peer reviewed studies on Kratom and its constituents have shown that Kratom has no acute toxicity, displays powerful antioxidant and antibacterial properties, assists with drug and alcohol withdrawal symptoms, contains several oxindole alkaloids which have exhibited potent immunomodulation properties, and even contains constituents that have exhibited anti-cancer properties! A brief search in any scholarly database will present many peer reviewed studies and clinical trials that can attest to the medical potential of this plant. In short, Kratom does not present a significant threat to human health or safety on any level.”
This page’s sole purpose is to gather as many of the studies we can find that point to the medical value of Kratom. There is a flood of research happening right now, and this absolutely needs to be considered as new bills are drafted that incorrectly lump Kratom; a completely natural plant, used safely for thousands of years, in with dangerous synthetics such as “Bath Salts”, “K2″ and others.
We’re on the same side are our lawmakers and Congresspeople; we want to see dangerous synthetics and Designer Drugs removed from the marketplace and our streets. The Botanical Legal Defense team was formed to prevent other completely natural, proven-safe herbs from incorrectly being lumped in with those dangerous substances.
