First off this is another great documentary #leafoffaith🌿 by #chrisbell the maker of Bigger, Stronger Faster. As a #kratomadvocate, Bell does a good job of boosting public awareness about Kratom by presenting a balanced view of its benefits and dangers,(in that, I'm mainly referring to when shady vendors have sold kratom laced with #tramadol derivatives and other nasty compounds)and committing to further study of Kratom in the future. This informative documentary is essential watching for anyone who suffers from #chronicpain and/or is concerned about the marketing manipulations of big pharma in the U.S. If you are in pain, it is welcome news about a safe solution for relief.

#BigPharma wants to extract the main #alkaloids in #kratom... which are 7-hydroxymitragynine and #Mitragynine and of course add in addictive chemicals and patent #pharmaceuticals. They prefer to take it apart and sell it piece by piece, as new #drugs. Ultimately, their plan appears to be to patent beneficial alkaloids contained in #kratom, while using the force of law to deny access to the #naturalherb.
Kratom in it's natural form at small doses of this alkaloid acts as a stimulant at the delta opioid receptors. At higher doses, it acts as a painkiller by interacting with the mu opioid receptors. It's safe and very effective, but all these God given herbs need to be respected.
