A Kratom gummy works in a similar way to a CBD or THC gummy in that it delivers the active compounds of the Kratom plant into your body. The compounds known as alkaloids interact with receptors in your body for a wide range of effects.
Mitragynine, the main alkaloid in Kratom, may interact with the opioid receptors in the body, which control pain and emotions. It is thought that this interaction will have effects like those of opioids, like relieving pain and making you sleepy.
Another alkaloid, 7-hydroxymitragynine, found in Kratom, is thought to interact with the body’s receptors for the neurotransmitter dopamine, which is responsible for regulating mood and energy levels. This interaction is believed to produce effects such as mood enhancement and increased energy.
The effects of Kratom gummies can vary depending on the individual, the dosage, and the quality of the gummies. Kratom use may have negative side effects, so you should always talk to a doctor before taking it.
