Holiday Gift Guide 2020: The Best Kratom Products – Forbes


Break the norm this holiday and introduce a new natural supplement as a gift this year—kratom. As the CBD bandwagon subsides, shoppers are aglow with other new plant derivative choices. Choose your strain of kratom for desired effects and lift off!

Kratom contains highly useful botanical agents with opioid-like effects and endless potential in the future of medicine. Mitragyna speciosa, its formal botanical name, is indigenous to Thailand and neighboring countries in Southeast Asia. Kratom’s most active compounds—mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine—produce stimulant, analgesic and opioid-like effects. In higher amounts, you can expect a pain-killing effect, or a stimulant effect in smaller doses.

Check local laws to determine if kratom is legal in your neck of the woods. While most U.S. states allow kratom, Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Wisconsin banned the herb and its extracts, and several cities have banned the herb as well at the local level.

We found the best kratom gifts for introducing your friends to a more natural approach to handling pain without powerful opioids—which have the power to stop breathing. Peer-reviewed evidence suggests that kratom has less potential for addiction than opioids, and may be the key to weaning off opioids. Here’s a list of possibilities for the kratom-curious:
