The use of kratom should not be confused by drug use and in no way is part of legal drugs, kratom is a plant that was put here so that we could find her.

I very much believe that the world as we know it would be EXTREMELY different if plants were never derived and used beyond their purpose.

Kratom is in the coffee family and it is in its pure form nothing is done to it to become what you get. When you receive kratom powder it is the the leaf that was just picked off of a natural growing tree.

Nothing is added or taken from this plant in any way shape or form. The stems are removed from the leaf foliage and it is than powderized.

Opium on the other hand is derived from the seeds of a poppy. Opium contains opiates that has many compounds. We than derived opioids (heroine, oxycodone) from the opiates.

If kratom would have been founded before opium, the world would be a MUCH DIFFERENT place. Especially for your close relatives that suffer from all the pain kratom can help with.

The fact that people push this as drug use and legal drugs is absolutley going to ruin the reputation of kratom and does not give it the right persona for people looking at it for the first time.

Kratom is not a legal drug and should not be put into the category of drug use at all. Most people using the terms “legal drugs” and “drug use” usually intend to use the said substance in an abusive manner.

    Is Kratom legal in Croatia. I can’t seem to find any piece of information stating so. I don’t know where to go to find out. Going to Croatia in October 2018 this year and really would like to know if I can take it with me. I took on the plane to California with zero problems.

    Something to add for Germany:
    Kratom is only illegal if you plan to injest it. Shops in Germany therefor sell it as dye or incense material.
