The kratom plant is a unique and different from other herbs, at low or moderate the effects usually are stimulating doses, however, at high doses, the effects are sedation in most cases. This is because the active alkaloids in this plant have both stimulant and sedative effects.
When Kratom is taken alone (not mixed with other herbs), the greatest danger is falling asleep while performing dangerous activities. You should never drive under the influence of Kratom, although you may feel energetic rather than sleepy, as drowsiness may occur without warning. Common sense should always be used. Do not use power tools or climb stairs while under the influence of Kratom. Be careful not to leave a pot on the fire and then fall asleep.
Pregnant women should not take any drug or medication except under medical supervision. Since there have been no studies on the side effects of kratom in pregnant women, it is not known whether it can cause birth defects or death of the fetus. It is imperative that women who believe they may be pregnant do not consume Kratom.
Is Kratom addictive?
Although a small number of people are dependent on kratom (mainly in Thailand), kratom itself does not create habit when used responsibly. If consumed from time to time, there is virtually no risk of becoming dependent. That is why it is extremely important not to fall into the habit of taking it every day. Kratom, like many drugs (such as alcohol, coffee, tobacco, etc.), If taken daily for an extended period of time could become a habit difficult to break. It is important not to consume kratom every day. Before starting to take it would be advisable to set some guidelines for use. If it is believed that it is difficult to keep within your guidelines of use, it is advisable to stop consuming kratom immediately.
What are the guidelines for safe use?
It is better to bet on caution. Thus, it is recommended that people do not consume Kratom more than once a week. Preferably not more than once or twice a month. This will ensure that Kratom does not become a habit. In other words, Kratom should be reserved as a special gift. By using it infrequently, addiction will be avoided and consumed with more pleasure.
