Is Kratom Safe?
I love how kratom is compared to opiates, marijuana, cocaine, heroin, alcohol and the list goes on and on. If you’re thinking about trying kratom for the first time, you may be wondering is kratom safe. Rightfully so, depending on where you’re finding your research, you can get 2 totally different answers.
Is kratom safe? Yes, kratom is safe. Kratom doesn’t belong in the same sentence as pain pills, heroin, cocaine and others. All of these are manufactured, kratom is not. Kratom is a natural growing tree. While kratom is legal in most U.S. states and the FDA has not approved it, kratom has a history of being very beneficial to its users.
A Safe History
Ancient Southeast tribes have been using kratom for centuries. They rely on the kratom tree to treat chronic pain, anxiety, depression and other health factors. It’s really not a question about kratom being safe, not in the eyes of the billion dollar pill mills. You know, the same ones that flooded small town America with billions of pain killers.
How many people have died using kratom? ZERO. Now, the FDA points out that kratom has caused 36 deaths last year. That’s not accurate. Out of all 36 deaths, all of them used control substances with kratom. WARNING: if you’re going to use kratom with controlled substances, it’s not going to be safe.
Kratom Is Safe
History doesn’t lie, kratom is safe when taken in the right dosage. Just like coffee, soda, cheeseburgers, taking too much of something is not safe. Kratom is the same way. If you’re taking too much kratom, it can be bad for you. When kratom is took in smaller doses, it’s a fact, it’s safe.
If you’re buying kratom for the first time, yes, you want to be safe how you go about it.
First, buy your kratom from a trusted kratom vendor like Kratom Exchange. We’ve served well over 10K customers and that continues to grow.
Secondly, use your head when you’re taking kratom. Easy does it, start slow and small. Take a small kratom dose, gradually move up as needed.
What We Do Know
We know a lot of people that take kratom regularly and it has changed their life.
Health lobbyist say kratom is not safe, ineffective and should be banned.
Who’s right? Wrong?
Nobody, because everyone is different.
There’s going to be some people that can’t take kratom. You can have reactions from taking kratom, but that’s not a majority of people.
Kratom is not approved by the FDA. That means it doesn’t have a long list of possible side effects.
If you’re taking any type of medication, you can have side effects. Take any medication, look it up, I guarantee it has a long list of possible side effects that include seizures, constipation, upset stomach, sleepiness, and another 20+ side effects most people don’t read. They do this to protect themselves legally. They do it to…… oh yeah, be safe toward their heavy loaded pockets.
Long-Term Kratom Use
We don’t have the research.
Here’s what the health capitalist say:
For someone who has been a long-term and heavy user of kratom, it can lead to problems with the liver and kidneys, including kidney failure. Signs of liver and kidney damage include dark-colored urine and yellow skin and eyes. Kratom tends to make it more difficult for the liver and kidneys to process toxins and filter them out, which is what contributes to the potential for this type of organ damage. High-dose kratom users in Thailand have also demonstrated long-term side effects, including hyperpigmentation of the skin and possible psychosis.
We couldn’t verify this as we don’t have those types of studies.
Here’s What You Should Think About
What can long-term use of soda cause? Kidney damage, kidney failure, kidney stones.
What about long-term use of eating greasy foods? Clogged arteries, heart complications.
Yet, soda is sold everywhere and you can get a good greasy cheeseburger from anywhere.
What about alcohol? It’s legal for everyone 21+. It causes major health problems, liver damage, ect. We do have studies on the long-term effects of alcohol on your body.
To my point, there’s risk in EVERYTHING. Kratom is no different.
If kratom can deliver me from opiates, is it worth any risk? Some people say yes.
If kratom can heal my chronic pain and I can get away from addictive pain pills, is it worth the risk? Some would say yes.
If kratom can help my anxiety rather than taking dangerous xanax, is it worth the risk? Yeah, I’d like to remember my life.
If kratom can give me the energy I need to get through the day, should I take it? Some will agree to do just that.
To The So Called Experts
The ones trying to say kratom is not safe, they haven’t been in our shoes.
They don’t know what it’s like to be an addict. They don’t know what it’s like to hurt and have no solution. They don’t get it, they don’t understand like we do. They don’t know how it’s like to be scared, hiding out cause your anxiety is hell. They don’t know what it feels like to be depressed. They don’t get you, we know different.
A natural plant versus chemically manufactured drugs, I wonder what’s safer?
You be the judge. Is kratom safe? Your call…
For me, I’ve never felt this good. I’ve never been this in-shape, yes I have a health routine I follow.
Since I’ve been taking kratom, I follow routines. My focus is sharp, the mental clarity is amazing. I’m in a much better place.
It’s not just me, it’s countless others that are brave enough to make their story public for all.
Myself and like so many others, I buy kratom because it’s much safer than the alternatives.
Kratom is not for everybody, I’m not doubting everyone can take kratom either, I know some can’t. We’re all different and you could be one of the people that have reactions to it.
To my main point, kratom is safer than many things out there that are legal and have billions behind their advertising.
Pain pills, nerve pills, hard core drugs, alcohol, meth, heroin, cocaine, I can go on and on.
Give me the natural beauty of the kratom tree any day over these others. Just because it’s manufactured doesn’t mean it’s safe, quite the opposite.
Lastly, taking kratom is high doses can cause you problems, we never recommend this.
Hope this helps and gives you the clarity you need.
