Before you go and judge my plant Kratom, you better take a look at what you drink every single day. I am talking about CAFFEINE.
Caffeine is classified as a psychoactive drug, which is ridiculous, but it’s because it’s a stimulant and binds to your adenosine receptors. Kratom works the same way by binding to receptors but only partially. Many foods are considered a ‘drug’ if they are stimulants containing alkaloids, if they have any kind of physiological effect within the nervous system or brain.
Ask yourself if you consider yourself to be a drug addict because you drink coffee everyday? Or do you do drugs since you consume energy shots, Red Bull, or Monster Drinks? Or are you addicted and dependent because you hit Starbucks in the afternoon, because you’re so incredibly tired from your workday so far, and need a pick-me-up to get through the rest of your day?
EXACTLY, I’m guessing your answer is a big fat DOUBLE AND TRIPLE NO. MAYBE, truthfully we coffee drinkers can honestly be put in a category of having a harmless addiction to caffeine. I say harmless because for the most part you are not going to die of an overdose from drinking too much coffee. It’s rare. Withdrawals are painful but in my opinion that isn’t the definition of being harmed because you simply feel sick.
Same with Kratom. To date, no one has died from a Kratom overdose. IF someone dies from Kratom, it would be something VERY RARE to have happen. Kratom is scientifically proven to be 1,000 times less addicting and safer than morphine. Numbers do not lie.
The FDA, DEA, and media try so hard to paint Kratom a bad thing because it is a psychoactive substance and ANY psychoactive, technically alters the mind; but not to impairment, like they want you to believe. Caffeine is a psychoactive drug and also <<<technically>>>alters the mind. Stop trying to confuse people into thinking ‘psychoactive’ means impairment or intoxication.
My point is that stop being manipulated into thinking a psychoactive substance is bad or intoxicating. Because it’s ‘psychoactive’ it doesn’t mean it alters your mind to the point of impairment. If that were true, we as a society would be really a mess. Because look at these statistics ~
‘How many cups of coffee are consumed daily in the US?’
‘Coffee Statistics: 50% of the population, equivalent to 150 million Americans, drink espresso, cappuccino, latte, or iced/cold coffees.’
‘Coffee Shop Facts: Independent coffee shops equal $12 billion in annual sales. At the present time there are approximately 24,000 Coffee Shops across the country. Statistics show there will be approximately 50,000+ Coffee Shops within the years to follow. The average Espresso Drive-thru Business sells approximately 200-300 Cups of Espresso and Coffee Based Drinks per day.’
The average amount per person a day is 3 cups of coffee. ☕️
Kratom is a partial agonist, the same as coffee and caffeine. They both bind to receptors within the brain, therefore; they are classified as a psychoactive substance. Kratom has been demonized into making people think it’s something more than a tea leaf because so many people are benefiting from it. Big Pharma cannot get part of that profit. No one can because it’s a plant created from above. It’s a GIFT to human beings. ~ Respectfully Yours, Kam🍃
