Kratom helps transplant recipient avoid relying on prescription medications

Perhaps soon the feds will do the right thing and remove marijuana from the list of Schedule I drugs. Given the fact that the therapeutic value of cannabis has now been indisputably proven, and that 25 states have now legalized medical marijuana, it’s high time the federal government recognizes what the majority of Americans already know – that natural herbs like cannabis and kratom are better than Big Pharma poison.

People like 27-year-old Jordan Dodson from Texas, a multiple transplant recipient who suffers from chronic pain, were also extremely concerned about losing access to a natural treatment that makes pain management possible without the use of dangerous and addictive prescription drugs. “I am still elated,” Dodson told WFAA8. “It’s given back quality of life for me. For sure.” Dodson has survived two kidney transplants – the first when she was 2 years old – as well as a liver transplant. “I used to be [on] so many medications, it was hard to keep up,” she said. Suffering from from back pain, anxiety and depression, Dodson decided to try kratom and found that it eased the pain and her other symptoms. Nonetheless, the DEA [and FDA are] threatening to put kratom use to an end for people like Dodson.
