I just read this article posted today. www.inverse.com/amp/article/51089-can-you-overdose-on-kratom
Of course the lethal dose is probably way above what anyone would actually take. Unless they take it intravenously (hopefully no one actually does that). D=

I missed the part where the mice were injected with suboxone and methadone (FDA approved).

This evidence reminds me of Monsanto doing ALL scientific testing prior to introducing GMO everything into our food.

This reminds of me taking 20 plus grams of kratom with alot of alcohol and the time my friends showed me how to waste a ton of pot in high school. Technically you can't overdose, but if you replace every blood cell in your body with either substance...yeah eventully you die, unlike a tiny speck of herion thats the difference btwn life and death. Maybe the article has info, but ill stick with the hundreds of years of human trials, that science says no. Should remind people water has a lethal dose well below any amount of kratom you could eat, and american caffiene has this too. So do the math and tea leaves are probably more deadly, homework assignment for you college kids.

I don't get the numbers. Theres 1000 miligrams in a gram. So the rats only took half a gram?

You could say a rat weights at the most a pound. A half a gram a pound. I weight 220. So 110 grams would kill me, but you'd have to think how long kratom stays in your blood stream. You could easily accumulate 110 grams

Male rates 1.1 pounds

And the half life is 7 hours

@Phillycheeze That's true, you can die from too much of almost anything.

But us as a community are asking for trails and tests, so we have to be open to the results.

@Thefrogshateme So I guess it takes 9 days for all of the kratom to be eliminated by a person's system. I take 2 teaspoons a day (2 separate doses, 1 teaspoon each). I think its about 2.5 grams per teaspoon. So I guess that accumulates to about 45 grams in 9 days, if I'm figuring it right.
