Study: Kratom Linked To Serious, Life-Threatening Side Effects
The herbal remedy kratom is often touted as an alternative treatment for opioid withdrawal or chronic pain.
But according to Gizmodo, kratom is now in for more bad publicity.
New research shows the plant is linked to reported dangerous side effects, like seizures and deaths.
Some people also appear to go through withdrawal when off kratom, much like conventional opioids.
Parts of the government have lobbied for kratom to be classified as a Schedule I controlled substance.
