Kratom Science


The first thing i'd like to do in this article is quickly and once again debunk the myths stated by many authoritative figures against kratom, in a diabolical ruse designed to devolve the masses and lead us astray from real medicine, to synthetic hell. If there has been no scientific research on this herb, then why are there academic journals up the ying yang filled with scholarly information on it? Check out this link if you wish: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4657101/ I digress. On this page I want to share with you some new knowledge regarding the pharmacology of Mitragyna speciosa.


Aside from the well known mitragynine compound, there are some other less commonly known alkaloids and compounds in the tree. I want to talk about speciogynine, paynantheine, and speciociliatine today because I don't believe I have covered them in the past. It's hilarious actually, that according to an academic resource which ends with a .gov domain, it contains "40 structurally related alkaloids as well as several flavonoids, terpenoid saponins, polyphenols, and various glycosides." So why did the DEA tell us we don't know enough about Kratom to "allow it"?


It's actually quite epic what we DO know about Kratom. It seems as though there's as much research conducted on the herb as Cannabis. According to research AND observation, kratom produces, "both opioid- and psychostimulant-like subjective effects" There are so many constituents found in this tree that it's unreal. Have you ever heard of speciogynine, paynantheine, and speciociliatine? They are "indole alkaloids" of the Corynanthe-type. If Corynanthe sounds familiar to you that's because it is. I'll talk more about that in the next paragraph.


The similarity between pharmacological or psychoactive substances found in plants, is a very common occurrence. A psychoactive botanical known as Corynanthe yohimbe contains very similar and in fact nearly identical chemical compounds. The relationship and similarity between Kratom, Yohimbe, and even Voacanga and Iboga are VERY fascinating. That's right, there is a very close resemblance to that of Iboga phytochemicals, and mitragynine and others. While their structure is nearly the same, the effects can be quite unique.


What we are observing here when we contemplate the scientific facts behind Mitragyna speciosa and related plants, is that nature is in fact the most sophisticated and genuine pharmacy on the planet. No chemist, drug lord, scientist, or even alien species could possibly ever compete with the innate system of creating and perfecting pharmacological gems. It's an epic display of significance that has been set in place by the phenomena which I will simply refer to as source. Through some mind-boggling series of unexplainable, and unfathomable events, existence somehow exist, and within it lies an infinite array of tools and gifts to the children of its loving embrace. ENJOY IT!
