Opiate addiction is a path fraught with darkness and pain. Even as the victim injects himself/herself with a dose of the lethal drug, the chances of hope and life are reduced. Yet not every opiate addict consciously wishes for such a life. At some point of time, the addict wishes to break out of the vicious cycle and come out clean without the opiates running through his/her blood. Hence to the question-‘Is there life after opiate addiction’, the answer is a resounding yes if you are determined to embrace a new way of life.
Kratom makes life after opiate addiction worth living and hopeful. It also reduces the chances of slipping back into addiction. Let us see how Kratom achieves this:
Kratom which is a native of the South East Asian forests is a strong opiate agonist. This means that it mimics the effects of drugs such as heroin, morphine, oxycodone etc. There are medicines like methadone, suboxone, subutex etc which help to eliminate withdrawal symptoms and reduce cravings. However by doing this they create a substance dependency. Thus an addict moves from one addiction to the other.
How does Kratom do this?
Mitragynine, the primary alkaloid present in Kratom leaf is an opioid agonist producing effects similar to morphine. Another minor alkaloid- 7-hydroxymiragynine is believed to be more potent than morphine. Both these alkaloids bond with supra spinal mu- and delta- opioid receptors, thus alleviating withdrawal symptoms with ease and gentleness. By bonding with these receptors, the Kratom is able to significantly reduce pain and moods associated with withdrawal. The major difference between Kratom and other opiate drugs are that Kratom bond with the delta-opido receptors first while the opiod drugs bond with the mu-opiod receptors. However a large enough dose of Kratom activates the mu opiod receptors as well. At lower doses of 3 grams, Kratom stimulates while at higher doses it sedates and relaxes.
