UBC research points to tropical plant as potential way to fight opioid crisis

A leafy plant [Kratom] in the coffee family could help combat the opioid crisis, according to research from the University of British Columbia.

“It doesn’t cause respiratory depression, at least not in the types of doses that are regularly used that are causing all the fatalities around opioid use,” Walsh says. “There are certainly a lot of anecdotal success stories of people saying ‘I was able to withdraw from opioids and kratom sure made it a whole lot easier’.”
