Journal of Psychoactive Drugs ~ Social Functioning of Kratom

Studies show Kratom can lead to dependence in animals. Nevertheless, Kratom preparations were also suggested as a less harmful substitute in opiate withdrawal.

A cross-sectional survey was carried out in three Northern States in Peninsular Malaysia investigating 293 regular Kratom consumers, using the Addiction Severity Index, in a snowball sampling technique.

Findings showed that regular Kratom users do not experience major impairments in their social functioning, despite being dependent on Kratom for prolonged periods. Blog Written By Kami Ann Davis
