4. Is Kratom safe?
If excessive amounts of kratom are taken at any time nausea and or
vomiting is quite likely to occur. One should not drive or engage in
other physically hazardous activities under the influence of kratom,
for one may unexpectedly fall asleep. Occasional use of kratom is
quite safe. Fatal overdose has not been reported. Health problems are
possible in those who use kratom on a daily basis in high dosage. It
has been reported that In Thailand those dependent on it may
experience weight loss and develop an abnormal dark pigmentation of
the face. If a heavy habitual kratom user abruptly quits he may
experience withdrawal symptoms which may include one or more of the
following, irritability, crying, runny nose, teary eyes, diarrhea,
depression, drowsiness, insomnia, and muscle jerking. However, health
problems are VERY unlikely to occur in OCCASSIONAL kratom users. Like
any drug or medicine, people's reactions vary. All medications have
the possibility of causing allergic reactions in some people. Thus,
although it is unlikely, one could possibly have an allergic or other
unusual reaction to kratom, even it is used responsibly. Those with
high blood pressure should be cautious about using kratom, if they
choose to use it they should check their blood pressure while on
kratom and the day after to be sure kratom is not causing their blood
pressure to become too high, If kratom is causing blood pressure
problems it should be avoided. Kratom has antidiarrheal properties
and can be constipating.
8. Is Ayahuasca legal
Ayahuasca: not controlled by international conventions.
In the criminal procedure against the Santo Daime churches in the Netherlands, the District Attorney delivered an official letter from Mr. Herbert Schaepe, Secretary of the United Nations International Narcotics Control Board. The letter answered some questions from the Dutch Ministry of Public Health about the use of a preparation called 'Ayahuasca' by religious groups in the Netherlands.
The letter says: "The above-mentioned issue was consulted by the INCB Secretariat with the Scientific Section and the Legal Advisory Section of the United National International Drug Control Programme (UNDCP). It is our understanding that 'Ayahuasca' is the common name for a liquid preparation (decoction) for oral use prepared from plants indigenous to the Amazon basin of South America, essentially the stem bank of different species of a jungle vine (Banisteriopsis sp.) and the tryptamine-rich plant Psychotria viridis. According to the scientific literature, Ayahuasca commonly contains a number of psychoactive alkaloids, including DMT which is a substance included in Schedule I of the 1971 Convention on Psychotropic Substances.
The letter concludes with the statement: No plants (natural materials) containing DMT are at present controlled under the 1971 Convention on Psychotropic Substances. Consequently, preparations (e.g. decoctions) made of these plants, including Ayahuasca are not under international control and, therefore, not subject to any of the articles of the 1971 Convention.
16. What are the effects of Kratom?
Kratom has stimulant, narcotic-analgesic, and visionary properties.
In low doses, the stimulant effects predominate. The stimulation is
mild and somewhat like coffee, but not identical to it. Higher doses
bring out the sedative effects. Kratom can be used as a recreational
drug, a potent pain killer, a medicine for diarrhea, and even as a
treatment for opiate addiction. At high dosage, the user often will
lie down listen to music and enter a world of ‘waking dreams’.
17. Is Kratom addictive?
That depends on how it is used. A small number of people (primarily
in Thailand) have become dependent on it. Kratom is not habit forming
IF USED RESPONSIBLY. It is very important NOT to get into the habit
of using it on a daily basis. If used everyday for a prolonged time,
kratom, like coffee, alcohol, or tobacco, can become a habit. It is
best to use kratom no more often than twice in any week, and not to
use it two days in a row. Unless kratom is being used to treat a
medical condition such as chronic pain (consult a physician before
using it to treat any medical disorder), it is best reserved as an
OCCASIONAL treat, rather than as a daily indulgence. By using it
occasionally rather than daily, one avoids becoming dependent on it,
and will experience more pleasure from its use.
18. Can Kratom be safely combines with other substances?
We recommend not mixing but many herbs do mix well but be careful!!.
Some people experience increased nausea and headaches if they combine
kratom with coffee. Kratom should not be combined with large doses of
alcohol, however, small doses; e.g., one beer, seem safe to take with
it. Certain herbs reportedly increase the euphoric qualities of
kratom. Some legal psychoactive herbs that users have combined with
kratom without reported problems include chamomile, red poppy
(Papaver rhoeas), kava, Melissa (lemon balm), peppermint, and
Nymphaea cereulea (Blue Egyptian Water lily). Some people have
combined Salvia divinorum with kratom (making a very powerfully
psychoactive combination). Some people reportedly like to combine
kratom with cannabis. No health problems have been attributed to this
(illegal) combination. Kratom should not be combined with narcotics,
barbiturates, large doses of benzodiazepines, or with sedating
antihistamines such as Benadryl as respiratory depression might
occur. Those with sleep apnea should probably never take kratom.
