EPISODE 61: CHRIS MCCURDY DISCUSSES KRATOM AND THE OPIOID CRISIS
It is my understanding that you are interested in hearing about people’s experience with kratom. I am a 61-yr-old wife, grandmother and homeowner. I am not an addict. I have never had addiction issues, nor am I seeking a cheap ‘legal’ high. Until recently, I’ve been a compliant chronic pain patient who has never once abused my prescription pain medications.

Over the last several months, the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Commissioner Scott Gottlieb M.D. has issued several aggressive and misleading statements in a continued attempt to target the natural botanical commonly known as kratom. Kratom, scientific name Mitragyna Speciosa, is a traditional tealeaf that belongs to the Mitragyna species and is a member of the Rubiaceae family which is the same as coffee. It has been used since at least the 19th century in its indigenous place of origin in Southeast Asia for various beneficial qualities. This tropical tree is used in its raw plant form and the dried leaves are used to make a tea.
