Very potent natural pain relief

A very potent, natural pain killer: Kratom comes from a tree native to Southeast Asia and is in the same family as coffee. Leaves from the kratom tree have been used in herbal medicine for centuries. In a low dose, kratom is a stimulant but at high doses, kratom is used as a very potent sedative, a highly effective pain killer and even as a popular recreational drug. Kratom stimulates the mu and delta opioid receptors – much like narcotics and opium drugs do. Kratom also shows an affinity for the Serotonin and Norepinephrine receptors to elevate mood. Kratom tastes even worse than it sounds and is often powdered and capsulized to avoid the awful taste. Dried leaves can be chewed or made into tea but the tea is mostly boiled down to a small volume so it can be quickly swallowed. Side effects can be itchiness, nausea, edginess and an awake-dreaming state.

Even though this is natural - it is a drug.
