Does anyone have any experience using kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) for pain? I have used it several times over the past year and was wondering if anyone else could share their experiences with it. I have been considering ordering some for treatment of my pain as a result of lyme disease and coinfections.
Here is a quote from a webpage about
kratom so you guys can get a general idea of what it is:
"Kratom is a tree native to Southeast Asia (Thailand, Malaysia, Myanmar [Burma], and elsewhere). Its botanical name is Mitragyna speciosa. Kratom is in the same family as the coffee tree (Rubiaceae). The leaves of kratom have been used as an herbal drug from time immemorial by peoples of Southeast Asia. It is used in folk medicine as a stimulant (at low doses), sedative (at high doses), recreational drug, pain killer, medicine for diarrhea, and treatment for opiate addiction."www.sagewisdom.org/kratomguide.html
There are many websites that sell this herb online and it is completely legal in the United States and most countries. Let me know what you guys think.
