“Imagine if the DEA bans Kratom.”

Posted by SOL Botanicals


Kratom has long been used in Southeast Asia for thousands of years for its many health benefits. It was culturally woven and touted as a traditional remedy before its criminalization in 1943 due to opium prices skyrocketing and the government trying to control the market. Just recently the governemnt in Thailand removed the ban on Kratom and is allowing the sale and consumption of it  A plant in the coffee family (Rubiaceae), Kratom has helped in pain relief and as a mild stimulant. Millions of Americans use Kratom as well, making many claims, of which chronic pain and addiction relief are just to name a few. With the CDC’s restrictions on legitimate opioid prescriptions, some with chronic pain are left with few options. Some options could be worse than the prescription, like illicit opioids or even in extreme cases suicide. However, many have relied on Kratom to fill a much needed void in the U.S.
 
Some details on Kratom.
 
Kratoms effects vary. If you take a low dose, it can produce a mild stimulant effect. For instance, in places like Malaysia people chew Kratom leaves to stay focused, just like we in the states drink coffee or tea to stay alert. Now if you take a higher dose, depending on the kind of Kratom, it acts as a pain reliever or a sedative. This part of kratom isn’t entirely understood, but what we do know is that kratom’s active ingredients, 7-hydroxymitragynine and mitragynine, do some very interesting things. For example, based on limited but thorough lab studies scientist have found that both of those ingredients somehow bind to what’s called the mu-opioid receptor, the receptor that also binds things like morphine and other opioids.
 
The mu-opioid receptor causes different effects when it binds to different molecules, through an amazing process called biased-agonism.  This allows opioids and mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine to have different physical effects. How is this great? Well opioids activate a protein called beta-arrestin, which has been linked to dangerous side effects of opioids such as slowed, shallow breathing, that could lead to death. However, the ingredients in Kratom do not activate beta-arrestin. But you probably won’t hear that from the DEA or FDA.
 
Where does Kratom stand as of now?
 
As it stands the DEA and FDA have not been able to impose a ban on Kratom in the U.S. The FDA may however make a recommendation to the WHO (World Health Organization) that Kratom be banned internationally. If that were to happen millions of people not just in the U.S but across the world will be negatively impacted. There are countless testimonials from Americans who claim Kratom reduces opioid cravings, meaning they don’t have to go purchase some illicit drug that many times is laced with extremely dangerous fentanyl. CDC themselves have stated that synthetic opioids are the main driver of drug overdose death. Imagine banning the plant that reduces that, what good would that do? Prohibition also prevents valuable studies of Kratom effects to be conducted by researchers. What may prove to be a better option is that the FDA regulate Kratom. That would at least give way to industry safety standards and procedures. There are many conspiracy theories out there as to why certain governing bodies want to ban Kratom, big pharma being the main one. We hope that Kratom can one day be purchased at your local vitamin or health food store, but till then we’ll keep enjoying the plethora of health benefits this great plant provides.

When you're looking for that perfect pick-me up after a long day, sometimes coffee just won't cut it. Instead opt for Kratom which is like the younger energy brother of caffeine and can be used to give your body a more natural boost than anything else on the market today!

Kratom powder, Kratom Leaf

Kratom comes from Southeast Asia where local farmers have been using its leaves as an herbal remedy since ancient times because they produce similar effects to stimulants such as tea or coffee but with none of their undesirable side effects.

 

Kratom is a new and unknown plant to most people. It's not as well-known as coffee, but it does share some similarities with the popular beverage. Kratom is in the family of plants classified as Rubiaceae, as is coffee. However, the two have a very different alkaloid content and profile all together. For instance, the main alkaloid present in coffee is 1,3,7-trimethylxanthine or caffeine as its commonly known. The content of caffeine is about 1%-2.5% by weight of dry green coffee beans. In terms of profile, coffee plants contain only two different alkaloids, purine alkaloid like Caffeine and pyridine alkaloid like Trigonelline. Trigonelline is and has been investigated

 

Kratom or Mitragyna Speciosa as it’s known in the scientific community, is a colossal assortment of multiple alkaloids and capacities. Kratom contains at least 54 alkaloids! Now you’re probably thinking, what’s with all this alkaloid talk? Well, if you consider that coffee with just 2 alkaloids has about 58% (193,000,000 people) of the U.S. population drinking it to wake up in the morning, just imagine what Kratom with 54 alkaloids can do for you! While all alkaloids contribute to the complex effects of Kratom, the main ones responsible are mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. Both are partial agonists, or bind to and activate receptors inside of us. For thousands of years in certain pockets of the planet, where Kratom naturally grows, native people of the land have been consuming and enjoying the multiple benefits of Kratom. Like coffee, there are different kinds of Kratom strains or species, each with its own unique ability to help in your well-being. There is Kratom for natural sustained energy. There is Kratom for mental clarity and mood enhancement. Also, there’s Kratom for things such as anxiety, sleep aid, and so forth.

 Kratom Leaf, Kratom Powder

If you’re looking to switch from coffee or tea to Kratom, then go with green or white strains of Kratom. Most importantly, go for high quality, all natural, 100% pure Kratom from a trusted source. You have your go-to coffee for a reason. You would want to have a go-to Kratom source as well. Kratom isn’t like coffee, in that you wouldn’t want to brew it, add sugar and creamer to it. In that regard it’s more like a tea. You could boil some water, add Kratom, honey and lemon to it (it helps with the natural taste). You could also purchase Kratom in capsule form, doing away with all the hassle. In the end, however you choose to enjoy your Kratom just know that you’re in many ways sharing in a tradition that dates back thousands of years and you’ll reap the same rewards.

Within How Long Does Kratom Take Effect? 

When someone uses kratom, one begins to feel an effect within 30 minutes. The effects of a small dose of kratom can last anywhere between 1-2 hours, larger  doses, effects may last up to 6-8 hours. Smaller doses can  A dosage of 2-3 grams can produce very  potent effects that last for about two hours, while seven to 5-6 grams can produce an effect of upwards of. The peak effects of using kratom are believed to be around 1.5 to 2.5 hours after someone takes it.

Kratom’s onset can be faster felt sooner if consumed on an empty stomach, opposed to consuming kratom after ingesting a full meal. If someone eats before taking it, the onset will take longer to feel. If someone takes the capsule form of kratom, it can also take longer for the effects to take hold because it has to dissolve in the person’s stomach.

What Influences the Longevity of Kratom in Your System?

As with any supplement , there are a lot of variables that would influence how long kratom would stay in a person’s system. Some of the factors that can determine the elimination time and, ultimately, how long it will stay in your system include:

  • Body fat:Another characteristic that can play a big part in how long it takes kratom alkaloids to be eliminated is each individuals body fat percentage. The mitragynine in kratom is very fat-soluble, which means individuals with a high body fat percentage will likely retain the kratom metabolites longer than someone with a lower body fat percentage.
  • Age: Older people tend to have a longer elimination of kratom’s alkaloids half-life than younger people. This is the case with kratom as well as with most orally-ingested supplements. This is usually due to factors such as renal function, age-related physical changes. 
  • Food and water intake: Kratom is best ingested with a high-fat meal, it could lead to faster absorption, which could also speed up how long it would take the substance to reach its peak concentration levels. If you’re well-hydrated, it can also play a role in how long it takes for kratom to be excreted via urine. The more water you consume daily the faster your system can rid the traces of most supplements consumed.
One of the biggest reasons people decide to consume kratom, especially as opposed to opioids and many other toxic substances, is that the likelihood of this natural supplement to appear on a drug screen is pretty slim. Kratom doesn’t show up on your typical drug screen tests like the SAMHSA-5. However, some kratom alkaloids can be traceable on certain drug tests, such as urine or blood tests. Because blood tests provide a shorter detection window for substances and are more invasive, it’s more likely that a urine test would be conducted. There is a specific drug test called the kratom 10-panel drug test that can be given as well. Remember to consume Kratom responsibly and always be aware of your jobs prohibited substances.

How long does kratom last?

Posted by Bianca Gonzalez

Kratom is renowned around the globe for its herbalistic predisposition and its ability to give its consumers a stimulating burst of focused energy or a soothed, unwinding feeling. When you are new to kratom or aren’t sure how it will affect your body, you may have plenty of questions regarding how long it lasts and similar topics. We have the answers for you.

What Does Kratom Do?

The primary active ingredient in kratom is mitragynine, which has been shown to have opioid-like properties and may also act as an agonist at serotonin receptors. Other compounds found in kratom include 7-hydroxymitragynine, 7-keto mitragynine, and O-desmethyltramadol. These substances all interact with different parts of the brain and nervous system.

What Types of Kratom Are There?

There are three main types of kratom: white veins, red veins, and green veins. It comes in either a powder or a capsule. The veins are determined by what color they are on the leaf upon harvesting, and they all have different effects. White veined kratom is energizing, green veins are euphoric, and red veins have a sedative and relaxing effect. Always be aware of the amount you take as well. A low dose of kratom is more energizing while high doses tend to be more sedative. Some types are higher in potency and require less of a dose to achieve the same effect.

High energy types of kratom are perfect for daytime focus and motivation boost. You’ll be alert and driven. Euphoric types will make you feel uplifted and more talkative. A red-veined kratom, such as Red Borneo gives a nice sleepy feeling.

The type of strain you choose and how your body metabolizes it depends on how long it lasts, but let's dig into this topic more.

How Long Does Kratom Last?

A kratom high usually takes effect within 30 to 60 minutes after taking it, but sometimes the effects can be felt after 15 to 20 minutes. Since body types, doses, and varieties are so vast it can’t be pinpointed but the broad answer is four to seven hours. The euphoric sensation can last from five to seven hours, but usually, the feelings are more intense after two to four hours of ingestion.

Depending on the metabolism and if you have an empty stomach at the time, kratom kicks in anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour. It is possible to overdose on kratom, and even though it isn’t fatal, it can still cause liver damage or dependence from overuse.

It is recommended you wait four to six hours between kratom doses. Beginners should take smaller amounts and wait to see how the body reacts.

How Is Kratom Taken?

With higher doses, kratom can have effects similar to opioid substances, causing sedation, euphoria, and a possible dreamlike state.

The most common way to take kratom is by ingesting it orally. However, some people prefer smoking it because they find that method easier than swallowing capsules. Smoking also allows users to control how much they consume at one time.

When using kratom for its psychoactive properties, you should start with small amounts and work your way up until you reach an effective dosage level. This will allow you to determine what works best for you.

Understand Kratom Half-Life

The half-life for kratom depends on how much you take at one time. If you ingest too little, your body will not absorb enough of the drug into its system. This means that the amount of active ingredients left over in your bloodstream will decrease rapidly.

On the other hand, if you consume too large an amount, some of the active ingredients may remain in your bloodstream longer than usual. In this case, the amount remaining in your bloodstream will also decrease slowly.

How Does Kratom's Half-Life Affect How Long Kratom's Effects Last?

Although it doesn't get as much discussion, the duration of kratom's effects is also dose-dependent, though to a lesser extent than are the effects themselves.

With kratom, proper dosage is everything. According to a 2015 study, which remains the most accurate source on the subject, kratom has a half-life of just under 24 hours. The answer depends upon two factors: 1) what kind of effect do you want from kratom, and 2) how many times you consume kratom over the course of a day. Let's look at each factor separately.

In Closing, If You Want A Short Effect From Your Kratom Intake, Then Consuming It Frequently Is Best

Although it doesn't get as much discussion, the duration of kratom's effects is also dose-dependent, though to a lesser extent than are the effects themselves.

With kratom, proper dosage is everything. According to a 2015 study, which remains the most accurate source on the subject, kratom has a half-life of just under 24 hours. Absolutely not. caffeine's half-life is about 6 hours, its effects “peak” about 45 minutes after consumption, then gradually fade away. If you consume a single serving of kratom, you can expect to see its effects peak within 30–45 minutes, depending upon what strain you use. After that point, they should begin to wane over the course of a few hours. However, when you start consuming multiple servings per day, those peaks become less frequent and shorter in duration. This is because each additional serving adds to the total quantity of active alkaloids already circulating through your bloodstream.

We at SOL Botanicals look forward to guiding you through your kratom journey for whichever experience you require.

3 Major things about kratom

3 Major things about kratom.

Kratom is a natural supplement that has been used for centuries to help with pain, anxiety, and depression. In recent years it has grown in popularity due to the opioid crisis. It can also be used as a stimulant or sedative depending on the dosage. There are many misconceptions about this plant so we're going to break it down for you into 3 major things: what kratom is? why people use kratom? lastly what are some side effects of consuming kratom?  Let's get started!

Kratom is a natural plant from Southeast Asia that can be used for pain relief.    

In the leafy jungles of Southeast Asia, there is a tree called Mitragyna speciosa that only grows to be about 20 feet tall. It's leaves are long and thin, like fingers on your hand. People have been harvesting these trees for centuries for their medicinal properties. The locals call it kratom or mitra ika (the Thai word for "plant").

Kratom has some major benefits as a treatment for pain relief and other ailments without the nasty side effects of addictive drugs or withdrawal symptoms when you stop taking them – no more need to go cold turkey from painkillers! Some people have reported feeling euphoria while others say they experience sedation but one thing is common among all users: increased energy levels.

Kratom is not addictive and has no withdrawal symptoms.

Kratom is a natural herb that comes from the leaves of the Mitragyna speciosa tree found in Malaysia and Thailand. You’ve probably seen it sold at your local natural herb store, but what is kratom? The active chemical compounds are mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine, which act as an opioid agonist. It binds to the same receptors in the brain as coffee or even chocolate and sugar would. Giving similar effects without any risk of overdose or addiction! Kratom does not produce withdrawal symptoms like other drugs do when they are stopped abruptly because it lacks addictive properties. If you’re worried about addiction to prescription medication, try using kratom instead! 

It works as an anti-inflammatory, muscle relaxant, and much more.

Many people are turning to amazing plant, a natural alternative that not only helps with pain relief but is also used for other purposes such as an anti-inflammatory and muscle relaxant. Kratom can be extremely useful when it comes to inflammation, like arthritis or even chronic pain. It's also been known to help with anxiety and stress levels. Kratom has the ability to release alkaloids(alkaloids in Kratom is what helps bind with pain receptors to help soothe pain, or anxiety) into your system which in turn will give you some level of relaxation without any worry of addiction because there is no withdrawal symptoms from quitting use of the plant either.

 Kratom can be used when you’re looking for a pick me upper and also on those days you come home sore after a long day of work. The benefits are endless with this natural plant that has been around for centuries. It is now being studied in the USA by researchers who have found it to be effective in treating opiate addiction, depression, anxiety, and chronic pain relief  without any adverse side effects like some prescription medication may cause or addictive qualities like opioids do.
