Kratom is a popular remedy for pain or anxiety, boosting energy levels, and improving mood, among other benefits. However, opponents are creating many myths about kratom that its use is risky and it is not safe to use as it has the same effects as some addictive drugs have.
The media is playing a big role in spreading the false statements about kratom and its effects. According to a few articles, kratom is a drug which causes addiction and even it leads to kratom abuse.
Safe Use Of Kratom
Kratom leaves, which grow on the Mitragyna Speciosa tree, can give negative effects which depend on you as a user and how you are using it.
- You must use a dosage of kratom according to the recommendations. Small dosages do not cause damage to you and you can use a controlled dosage without any fear of addiction.
- Usually the effects of a dangerous nature start occurring if the dosage is increased by almost 10 times the suggested quantity and the usage is for months continuously every day.
Why Do People Fear Using Kratom?
Due to the misunderstandings created by the media, people are now afraid that kratom is similar to dangerous drugs that lead to abuse.
Evidence Of The Safety Of Kratom
- The safety of kratom can be evident from its use in Southeast Asian countries for thousands of years. The locals in these areas have been using it for many purposes like pain relief and energy boosting, etc. They have been using it by making it into tea, using it in food or ingesting it in any other way.
- Recent reports can also prove that kratom does not have addictive effects or the effects of a severe nature. All the patients have been checked and their reports clearly show that the problems they are suffering from are due to other reasons and kratom has nothing to do with them.
Negative Effects Of Kratom
Kratom is beneficial although it has some side effects when you do not take the correct dosage and ignore the recommendations. In that case you will face difficulties like:
- Weight loss
- Darkening of the skin
- Frequent urination
- Dry mouth
These are the few side effects which can occur by using too much kratom, but they are not fatal as there are no such examples present. Therefore, there is no need to worry.

- Body pain
- Aggressive behavior
- Runny nose
- Mood changes
So, taking a break from kratom use can return you to your normal condition.
