    Kratom will not get you high in any amount. The only reason the Thai government banned Kratom was because it was cutting into their opium trade. The we’re losing money due to Kratom.

    As an RN I have done plenty of research reading studies and scientific papers on Kratom before deciding to switch from opiates. It is by far the most helpful of anything I have used for my managing pain and with none of the side effects that opiates have. It is safe and effective for Fibromyalgia in my opinion. Causes no respiratory depression or cognitive problems and virtually impossible to overdose on because the body will reject via vomiting if too much is ingested.
    I would recommend that before anyone takes Kratom they do their own education, talk to their doctor, and purchase from a reputable vendor not a head shop. There are groups on Facebook and Google to read about Kratom.

    I use Kratom for rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia and this is the only thing that has alleviated any pain. I have taken other fda approved drugs and there is no comparison. I feel better on Kratom than I have in years and for that I’m very thankful.
