World Health Organization Expert Committee on Drug Dependence [ECDD] recommends against critical review

“The Committee concluded that there is insufficient evidence to recommend a critical review of kratom.” While the decision was based on a scientific review of the risk of dependence, abuse potential and therapeutic applications of kratom, advocates also touted the fact that about 80,000 people submitted comments to the panel, sharing their perspectives and experiences

“People report using kratom to self-medicate a variety of disorders and conditions, including pain, opioid withdrawal, opioid use disorder, anxiety and depression,” ECDD said in its report. “Kratom is being used as a part of traditional medicine in some countries.” “The Committee considered information regarding the traditional use and investigation into possible medical applications of kratom,” it continued. “The Committee concluded that there is insufficient evidence to recommend a critical review of kratom.”
