What is clear is that Mitragyna speciosa Kratom is not recommended for daily use.

While such a practice is not nearly as problematic or dangerous as it would be with opiate or opioid use, it is clear that it is with regular use that most of Mitragyna speciosa Kratom’s side effects and health issues can occur.

This is obviously not the best way, from a psycho-physiological or financial point of view, to enjoy Mitragyna speciosa Kratom. Also, as far as the nature of effects go, it is known that tolerance to the opiate-like effects of Kratom builds more quickly than a tolerance to Kratom’s stimulant effects.

Since Mitragyna speciosa Kratom’s stimulant and sedative effects work in tandem, a more quickly developed tolerance to the sedative opiate-like effect implies an increase of Kratom’s stimulating effects over time with repeated use, even if Kratom doses do not change.

One should really not use Mitragyna speciosa Kratom more than once a week. Preferably, not more than once or twice a month, in order to make sure that Kratom use stays an occasional pleasure, and does not become a habit, and that tolerance is kept in check.

In other words, Mitragyna speciosa Kratom should be reserved as a special, but OCCASIONAL treat. By using Kratom infrequently, one will avoid habituation and genuinely get more pleasure from use, and avoid side-effects.

Due to Mitragyna speciosa Kratom’s sedative and relaxant qualities, one should NEVER drive while under the influence of Kratom, even if one feels stimulated, rather than sleepy, for sleepiness may come without warning.

One should also use common sense, and not do anything hazardous such as using power tools or climbing ladders while under the influence of Kratom, and be careful to avoid domestic safety hazards, such as leaving a pot on a lit stove and then falling asleep, for instance.

Pregnant women should not take any drug or medication except on medical advice. This goes for Mitragyna speciosa Kratom. Since there have been no studies of the risks of Kratom use by pregnant women, it is not known whether it could cause birth defects or foetal death. It is thus strongly recommended that any woman who might possibly be pregnant should NOT use Mitragyna speciosa Kratom. In the same line of thought, Kratom use should be avoided by lactating women, as there are clear risks that some elements of Kratom, as with other substances, might pass into the milk. As this mechanism has not been studied, it is best to stay on the side of caution and avoid using Kratom when lactating / breast-feeding a child.
