Mitragyna speciosa Kratom has been used as a medicine and as a recreational psychoactive for a long time in South-East Asia, and is therefore known to be relatively safe. Yet it is important to note that Kratom’s action and eventual side effects are not yet fully understood or documented, and one should always proceed with caution.
Western science is only beginning to pay attention to the effects and uses of Mitragyna speciosa Kratom, and what research already does exist contains some apparent conflicts and, unfortunately, is often imprecise, or with a tangible bias on the researchers’ part.
However, independent researchers and users have also begun experimenting with Mitragyna speciosa Kratom in many different ways, documenting and sharing their research and impressions, which is starting to constitute a good empirically based corpus on non-traditional use of Mitragyna speciosa Kratom.
In such a context, safe Mitragyna speciosa Kratom usage guidelines really imply that one should stay on side of caution, and respect Kratom’s potency, especially when it comes to the issues of Kratom doses and frequency of Kratom use.
