The well known online authority on natural health, Naturalnews.com recently published a couple of articles about kratom. It acknowlegdes its usage in traditional herbal medicine to treat pain, boost energy, alleviate anxiety and depression symptoms, and promote feelings of wellness and happiness. The article also notes that kratom legal future remains insecure since the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has placed it on its infamous Drugs and Chemicals of Concern list, in the past. Based on the data that is available on kratom, it appears as though the actual plant itself is basically safe, and that the DEA is simply overreacting, according to NaturalNews.
It should be noted that the DEA by itself has no legitimate evidence showing that kratom is in any way dangerous.
