Researcher suggests kratom may have medical benefit as opioid alternative – Medical News TodayTue 29 Nov 2016

A delayed U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration ban on kratom would stifle scientific understanding of the herb’s active chemical components and documented pharmacologic properties if implemented, according to a special report published in The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association.

The report cited the pharmacologically active compounds in kratom, including

  • mitragynine,
  • 7-hydroxymitragynine,
  • paynantheine,
  • speciogynine and
  • 20 other substances,

as one basis for further study.
