Kratom Story, 7-Hydroxymitragyninean (Metabolite of Mitragynine), Key Mediator of Analgesic Effect (合法 天然 超强镇痛 比吗啡强十多倍)

Image
Kratom (Mitragyna speciose) is an evergreen tree native to the tropical jungles of Southeast Asia, the leaves of which have been used traditionally as a stimulant, analgesic, and treatment for opioid addiction for the last century. In its native regions, leaves of the kratom tree are typically consumed as a tea or chewed directly, and are purported to induce stimulant and opioid-like analgesic effects in the user in a dose- and time-dependent manner. These effects have traditionally made kratom popular among agricultural workers, who use the plant to aid in long hours of hard labor. Kratom has also been reported to be useful in ameliorating withdrawal symptoms following cessation of opioid use, and it has achieved some popularity for this use in its native regions. Recently, growing use of the plant in the United States and concerns that kratom represents an uncontrolled drug with potential abuse liability, have highlighted the need for more careful study of its pharmacological activi…
