Is Kratom Right for You?

Kratom is a compound found in the tree leaves of the mitragyna speciosa plant that grows in southeast Asia. It is an herb and not an opioid, but it produces pain relief like an opioid. Biologically, it attaches to the opioid receptors (pain relief sites) in the brain and spinal cord, and relieves pain just like an opioid.
