…kratom extracts

History has shown that developing enriched natural product elixirs or purified active agents, as with cocaine from the coca shrub and morphine from the opium poppy, can be both a blessing and a curse.

Concentrated kratom extracts are analogous to these historical examples. Though the extracts may provide benefits to some, they may also result in unpredictable, adverse effects and other potential harms resulting from dependence and drug-drug interactions. The blessing is that some of these concentrates can be medically useful to improve quality of life for patients suffering from numerous disorders, but the curse is the increased risk of adverse effects and the potential for misuse… though the… extracts may provide benefits to some, they may also result in unpredictable, adverse effects and other potential harms resulting from dependence and drug-drug interactions… as researchers studying the therapeutic potential of kratom, while also desiring to reduce possible associated harms, we strongly recommend that kratom in its native form (unadulterated fresh or dried leaf material) remain available to consumers. In addition, there must be thorough and proper oversight and regulation, including clear labeling that describes the amount of mitragynine per kratom dose, recommended maximum daily doses, potential for drug interactions, and implementation of proper Good Manufacturing Practices (similar to what is done for other dietary supplements).
