    Kratom overdoses

    But I thought it was natural and perfectly safe????

    Kratom – a plant grown naturally in Southeast Asia and often sold in powder capsules – was a cause of death in 91 overdoses in the United States from July 2016 to December 2017, according to a report released Thursday by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    Never heard of the stuff. I wonder how it was determined that this is the substance that caused to OD? Looks to me that all had contributing drugs/substances in their systems. Is less than 1% a clinically significant number?

    Well if they were taking it for weight loss, it worked.

    The amount of kratom you have to take to OD is ridiculous. The benefits kratom has for getting physically addicted opiate addicts clean are unmeasurable. You can similarly overdose on caffeine at a much much lower dose than it takes for kratom. Let's put things in perspective.

    From what I have read, because the suppliment industry is widely unregulated, shady Kratom companies were lacing their products with actual opiods and other dangerous substances to "enhance" it's effect. There have been cases of newborn babies being born with DTs due to opiods laced into Kratom products that the pregnant mother was taking. Kratom itself is pretty much harmless and has far more benefits than dangers. You just have to make sure you have a trusted organic raw source to order from.

    Most of the deaths reported are correlation, not proven causation. From what I have read, in most of the deaths other more dangerous prescription (and/or illicit) drugs were also found in their system.

    BigPharma is in bed with the government which controls the cdc so the data is OBVIOUSLY faked to make kratom look bad and let the pull problem continue.

    Duh.

    Before you get your balls stuck in your ass, I was 95% joking.

    I actually think the data is bullshit because finding real kratom is ****ing impossible lmao
