Can You Smoke Kratom Powder
Kratom, and the resulting kratom powder, is an herb native to the southeast Asia region. It has enjoyed a meteoric rise in popularity over the last couple of years in the U.S.A. This powder is derived from leaves from the Kratom tree (aka Mitragyna speciosa). The leaves contain some compounds (alkaloids) which possess opiate-like effects.
To answer the question, ‘can I smoke kratom powder?’’, the answer is no. To begin, taking in kratom through the lungs could have long-term effects on the lungs and central nervous system. Large amounts of kratom can have negative effects on the capillaries in your lungs when smoked.
Why smoke Kratom powder?
While Kratom has been known and used in Asia and parts of Europe for a long period, it only found its way to America recently. Since then, researchers have continued to explore its limits and find answers to many of the questions asked of the substance.
Today, we know about the benefits of Kratom, recommended dose, and other wonderful benefits it adds to the body. But, smoking kratom has always been advised against by scientists. To begin, kratom powder is too finely ground, and smoking it alone is almost impossible. However, what some people do to bypass this is to add kratom to other substances like cannabis or tobacco. This is very dangerous and could inadvertently lead to severe side effects.
For example, cannabis is known to have a huge impact on the central nervous system, as does kratom. Mixing Kratom with tobacco might leave your body with toxic side effects over a long period. The presence of nicotine which is the active compound found in tobacco has been known to have toxic effects on the liver and mixing both substances could increase the toxicity levels.
