What Kratom Dosage is Safe? No One Knows. Our Attorneys Are Actively Investigating This Potentially Dangerous Substance.

Originally a Southeast Asian folk medicine, kratom (mytragynine speciosa) is derived from the dried leaves of a tropical evergreen tree from the coffee family native to southeast Asia. Despite its natural origin, kratom is a dangerous substance and can cause severe harm and even death — especially in concentrated extracts found in the United States. Touted as a “natural opioid,” kratom mimics the effects of an opioid and can have catastrophic side effects, including addiction, organ failure, psychosis, or death.

Unfortunately, kratom is classified as a food by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) instead of a drug, leaving users guessing about kratom potency and putting them at risk of a fatal overdose of the unregulated product. With kratom easily accessible at gas stations, vape and tobacco shops, liquor stores, bars, and more, over 1.5 million people in the United States have purchased kratom and could be at risk of an overdose or other adverse health effects. While kratom manufacturers advertise their products as safe and effective, their failure to warn consumers of the severe health risks and the numerous reports of lethal overdoses say otherwise.

No family should go through the loss of a loved one due to an entirely preventable kratom overdose. When tragedy strikes, our kratom lawsuit lawyers are ready to step in.

What is Kratom?

Kratom is a tropical tree native to Southeast Asia. Consumption of its leaves could produce a stimulant effect in low doses and a sedative effect in higher doses. Individuals tend to use kratom by crushing and smoking or chewing the leaves, brewing the leaves into a tea, or taking liquid kratom extract in a gel capsules or as drops. Kratom use can lead to psychotic symptoms and physical and physiological dependence, among other serious health effects.

Kratom Uses

At lower doses, kratom produces stimulant effects, with users reporting increased alertness, physical energy, and talkativeness. Kratom has also been touted as a treatment option to ease opioid medicine withdrawal symptoms.
