Kratom Addiction: Is It True?

If you’re new to buying kratom or you’re in “research mode,” you may be wondering how addictive is kratom.

Kratom addiction is real, yes, you can get addicted to kratom. But for some people, it boils down to risk versus reward, benefit versus benefit.

Let me explain.

If you drink alcohol for a long duration, you can become addicted to it. If you smoke cigarettes, you can become addicted to them. If you drink Mountain Dew or any type of drink, you can become addicted to it.

All of these are legal, kratom is legal too.

Now, can you become addicted to porn? You bet. What about addicted to your smartphone? Yep.

There’s a lot of “legal” addictions and just like with anything you do, it can become a habit, an addiction.

Then there’s all the illegal addictions, like pain killers, heroin, cocaine, oxy. Are they addictive? You can bet your bottom dollar on it.

What Kratom Addiction Really Means

Earlier, I touched on risk versus reward, benefit versus benefit.

A lot of people go to kratom because they’re trying to escape something else, such as opiate addiction, anxiety, chronic pain, ect.

For these people, kratom is a safer option. I’m not saying it’s right or wrong, I’m just calling out the fact.

When you’ve lost everything due to being an drug addict, kratom is viewed as a “second chance.”

How can I fault someone wanting to use kratom to leave that life behind? I never will. I understand, most people won’t.

You Can Become Addicted To Anything

The bottom line and to my point, you can become addicted to anything.

I’m not saying that gives kratom a pass because it clearly doesn’t, but it’s the truth.

If you’re not responsible with your kratom, you can become addicted to it.

What It Boils Down To

When all is said and done, if you’re taking kratom, that risk of addiction will always be there.

When I started taking kratom, I was on uppers, downers and felt like death. Kratom was a huge relief for me. I can’t state it enough, kratom changed my life. The countless stories I’ve heard from friends and customers have been the same, kratom helped.

When I look back at the first time I took kratom, it was because I hated taking pills. I already knew opiate addiction was a concern. These pills are manufactured, kratom is natural. Weighing in on my decision to buy kratom for the first time, it was because I was searching for a solution. I was trying to find an answer.

When I weighed out all the risk and rewards, that decision to go to kratom was easy.

Kratom has so many benefits.

Opiate Addiction

The opioid crisis is real, it’s terrible and it could have been prevented. It wasn’t, that’s history.

The war has reduced pain pills a lot. However, people suffering from chronic pain struggle to get help now. I know this because of our customers. While doctors are no longer writing prescriptions for those that really need such a medication. Due to the vacuum, we’re seeing more people buy kratom for its pain relief abilities.

A lot of people buy kratom to help with opiate withdrawal too. While kratom is not an opiate, the kratom effects it delivers can be opiate-like.

Kratom History

The ancient tribes have been using kratom as alternative medicine for years.

Kratom’s history is one that dates back many, many centuries.

Why I’m sure some take it for the kratom high, many others take it for particular reasons.

Farmers took kratom for extra energy, more stamina and persistence. Kratom farmers had tough jobs back then, they still do today. It’s the ancient farmers that have kept the traditional kratom strains alive, like Maeng Da kratom. While many of them used kratom powders, others would make a traditional kratom tea to consume their kratom.

In Closing

I want to end this with my own personal experiences using kratom as long as I have.

While I’m a kratom user, I use it responsibly.

I don’t take very high doses of kratom. I’m not saying you should or shouldn’t, only you can find that out.

I function every day. I feel more healthier today than at any other point in my life.

Kratom addiction is always going to be a concern for anyone that takes it. It doesn’t have to be though and that’s my primary point in this guide.

With that said, don’t feel bad that kratom has helped you. Many have found kratom to be a solution, this is why it gains so much popularity.

Control how much kratom you take. Be responsible with your kratom. Be safe.
