Research and safety precautions:
The Food Safety Administration(FDA) of the USA has banned this substance completely stating that usage of these will lead to addictions, drug abuse, and dependence as it contains similar traces of opioids which is a similar substance known for inducing euphoric feelings.
However, the federal government which has more authority and power than the FDA has allowed the use of Kratom and is legal in several states.
Rumors surround the Kratom:
According to Darshan Singh, a US-based scientist who has managed to track the users of Kratom through decades has found an interesting observation.
People have developed ailments and consider the cause as Kratom which are:
- Liver related issues
- Hair loss
By doing some research for proofs, he found out that these problems are unrelated to the dosage of Kratom and do not impact the individuals taking this, at all!. However, these can be caused by using Unadulterated ones and of poor quality.
There is no need to fear about using Kratom, the only thing which we should make sure of is the source I.e. from where it is obtained.
The manufacturing process must be looked into and quality must be reckoned. Recent developments include air-conditioned drying of Kratom, which provides way less chance to be contaminated.
Some speculations surround the banning by the FDA:
DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) which has similar motives like FDA, due to huge outcry from commons, lawyers have lifted the ban of Kratom in October last year. Therefore, it is more likely to be selling off the shelves in states where there is high demand.
The DEA’s ban on Kratom has placed it on hold for two years, meaning that it can be on the sale of two years until a case is started against it on the legal grounds.
Kratom has been popular especially in western countries like the United States, even though the distance involved is huge, thanks to modern logistics and shipping.
DEA is currently monitoring the usage by something called as Eight Factor Test, it applies the three of the factors namely,
- Substance history
- The pattern of Drug abuse
- The risk to public safety
The reason why it was banned even though it was slightly risky was that the fatality rates of using this drug are very low if by means it is negligible, considering other similar drugs.
However, if DEA considers banning this substance, it might pose risk to other similar drugs, Marijuana which is now completely legal in the United States.
