The truth is that many people are discreet about their kratom use, they don't want to advocate on social media or publicly at all. It may be a personal reason, it may be a professional reason or maybe you just don't want to explain yourself anymore. When someone first learns about kratom they will usually jump on the computer and “Google it”. Unfortunately, what you find are misnomers and negative articles. This will make for an awkward conversation with your boss or family member.
We will go over a few ways to help support the industry whether you want to keep your anonymity or you're happy to scream it from the mountain tops.
The coronavirus is plaguing mankind at the moment, and governments are trying to hold the casualties at bay. On March 11th, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a pandemic. That makes it the first virus to be labeled as such since 2009—when H1N1 (the swine flu) wreaked havoc on our planet. Back in 2010, the WHO’s statistics had the confirmed cases of deaths from the swine flue at 18,449, but later reports claim the toll was tenfold.
Right now, the confirmed cases of death from the coronavirus on a global scale are pushing 30,000. So it’s probably going to get a lot worse before it’s all over. And at the moment, there are no scientifically-known treatments that have been developed yet. But some countries state they’re close to a breakthrough vaccination.
Scientists have worked at incredible speeds, despite the governmental blunders that took place. One reason for the momentum moving toward a vaccination was the Chinese government’s ability to sequence the genetic material (genome) of SARS-CoV-2—the virus responsible for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
The program is asking the consumers of this industry to report vendors marketing “impermissible health claims”. The reports can be made by using an online form on the AKA website. If the AKA agrees and deems these vendors are not following the FDA’s labeling standards of the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic act they will forward the information to the US Food and Drug Administration.
A huge controversy that has arisen with Kratom, is whether or not it's addicting. Something to keep in mind is that virtually anything can be addicting. It all depends on you as a person and how you choose to treat any substances or product. People who watch movies can be considered addicts if they watch them on a consistent basis or schedule. So what the true problem is how we avoid addiction.
There are certain substances that interfere with your brain chemistry and can cause addiction easier than any others, but Kratom is not one of them. Kratom is an all-natural herb and does not contain any enhanced substances. It works with the opiate receptors in your brain, much like a prescription medicine. And just like a prescription drug, if a person takes Kratom on a daily basis, their body will become dependent on that daily dose and will crave it when it is gone.
