A close friend of mine recommended Kratom for relief from my back pain (due to a climbing accident a few years ago) They swear by it, but having done some research I see it can be addictive although it seems to have no side affects. Has anyone come across or used Kratom?
yea, i've taken kratom before, not for too long, it is a pain reliever, i think it was used as a treatment for opium addiction a long time ago. I'm not a doctor so you'd probably be better off checking with a doctor or specialist who knows about this type of stuff, but from my experience it may work, and would be no more addictive than any controlled substance pain killers such as vicodin, percoset, oxycontin, morphine, dilaudid, etc., probably less if anything. In my opinion Heroin is to methadone as Vicodin is to Kratom
Kratom is grown only in thailand, and thailand is the only place its illegal, people chew the leaves to aleviate pain or make a concentrate tea. I've tried the concentrate tea 25x potentcy.... It doesnt really work well and it makes you a little nauseas. Poppy Pod tea works much better as a pain reliever.
Kratom works on par with tramadol, but no doc should have a problem perscribing you that
Yeah, I take Kratom twice daily for my chronic nerve and hip pains. I have 95% of the signs for MS but my doctors are relucktent to diagnose same. I have also done lots and lots of research on Kratom. It is known for being addictive if consumed every day for several years (2-3). In my case, my entire body is in pain at one time or another. If you ask me, I would risk the addiction if it meant less or no pain any day of the week and twice on sunday. I
