Kratom is comprehensively used not only in Asia, but in the whole world for its analgesic, anti-anorexic, and anti-depressant effects.
It has also been used widely for opiate withdrawals. Even a bare dose of Kratom can infuse potent stimulatory effects on a person. They cannot be eaten directly, but are taken by mixing their dust powder into a liquid by making a tea from their leaves.
Desa Begen-Cico from the department of public health NY did a research which concluded that using Kratom in a tea helps in fully blocking opioid receptors and can be an effective substitute for weaning people addicted to opiates like morphine, oxycodone or heroin. This treatment must be carried out in a step-down treatment manner.
The commonly used techniques which include pharmaceutical drugs take a long time to work and could lead to non-compliance of the patient. On the contrary, Kratom holds a promise to eliminate opioid dependence within a limited amount of time.
According to research published in BioMed Research International, the role of Kratom in self-medication is not negligible. Kratom is considered as a “cheaper alternative” to various treatments, like in opioid replacement therapy by the locals.
