Kratom is a herbal extract that comes from the leaves of evergreen trees (Mitragyna speciosa) grown in Southeast Asia. Traditionally, the fresh or dried leaves are chewed or brewed into tea. Kratom has been shown to increase mood, sociability, and alertness. Kratom has been used to help people wean off opioids as Mitragynine, the major alkaloid identified from Kratom, has been reported as a partial opioid agonist producing similar effects to morphine. Kratom has a strong bind to mu-opioid receptors, comparable to scheduled opioid drugs.
