Kratom is a tree native to Southeast Asia (Thailand, Malaysia, Dalam negri, Borneo, etc. ). Their botanical name is Mitragyna speciosa. Kratom is the same family as the coffee tree (Rubiaceae). The leaves of kratom have been used as a natural drug from time immemorial by peoples of Southeast Asia. It is employed 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. Many people survey that Golden monk kratom is a powerful treatment for arthritis, sleepless legs syndrome (RLS), and fibromyalgia.
How is it taken?
In its indigenous region, kratom leaves tend to be chewed fresh (usually after removing the stringy central vein). Dried leaves can be chewed, but since they are a lttle bit tough, most people choose to crush them up or powder them so that they can be swallowed easily. Powder kratom can be combined with water and then drunk. This process is quick and easy. It can even be blended with other liquids, such as fruit juice, dairy, or kefir. Chocolate dairy works especially well for masking the taste. Powder kratom can be made into a paste that can certainly be swallowed with drinking water. The powder can be combined with applesauce or fat free yogurt. It can even be put into capsules. Dried kratom leaves are usually made into a tea that is drained and then drunk. Kratom can be smoked, but doing so is improper because the amount of leaf that constitutes a typical dose is too much to be reviewed easily. A resin-like remove can be prepared by evaporating the water from kratom tea. This can be stored later.

What are the effects?
Golden monk kratom is a rather unique medication because a low to moderate dose will usually (but not always) be stimulating, while an increased medication dosage is almost always quite sedating. This is obviously because the active alkaloids have both stimulant and sedative effects. Which predominates probably depends both on dosage and individual distinctions between users. Many people report that the results are incredibly similar to opiate drugs. From a medicinal perspective this is not surprising because kratom includes alkaloids that act as opiate receptor agonists. Oddly enough, although kratom has a similar mechanism of action as many opiate pain medications it does not appear to be practically as addictive. In simple fact many people use kratom to overcome opiate habit.
