I have been wanting to make this post for awhile. But I’ve been somewhat afraid of being judged for it. Despite that fear, I feel it’s my duty to share the benefits of this amazing plant powder with others. Even though it seems to be controversial and I have gotten very adverse reactions from people I know when they discover I use this substance, I still feel obligated to speak out in its defense.
A few years ago my sister introduced me to this new legal “drug” she found online. I won’t deny being a curious soul and partaking in various drugs throughout my life. So upon hearing this I was interested in giving it a try. The first time I had it, I was almost instantly euphoric. I felt like I had taken pills or something. I laughed and laughed. However, every time since then it has had a much milder effect on me. It isn’t exactly like building up a tolerance though as I have taken it pretty regularly for months now without noticing any further difference in effect. I have also never experienced any negative side effects.
That being said, this substance has drastically changed my life for the better. I would highly recommend it for anyone suffering from anxiety or even depression. After taking a few grams, I immediately feel my anxiety disappear. It is truly like a miracle. I can feel calm and content for a few blissful hours when I need to. It helps me be more productive as well. I am able to feel excited and interested in anything I choose to work on.
Kratom comes from a plant in the same family as the coffee bean. And like coffee I would say kratom is just as harmless and helpful. It may even be a nice alternative for people who are very sensitive to caffeine, as it gives energy as well. It saddens me to know that there is a growing movement to make this drug illegal while so many more harmful substances such as alcohol and tobacco are so easily available.
That’s another reason why I wanted to share my experience. I want to speak out so the world can learn more about kratom and its amazing benefits. I believe it may already be illegal in some states in the U.S. However, I’ll leave links to a few of the websites where you can buy some to try it for yourself if you are unable to find it locally. Mystic Island Kratoms is where I usually buy from. Although their stock has become somewhat limited due to Covid. Also checkout the American Kratom Association so that you can stay educated on legalization and protection efforts in your state! Let me know if you’ve tried it and what your experience with it has been like if so.
