Psychonaut is a term which describes any individual who deliberately submits to states of altered consciousness in an effort to better understand their mind, body and soul. For psychonauts, ethnobotanicals represent nature’s most sacred bounty.
Some psychonauts are self-proclaimed mystics, the sort of contemplative human beings who wish to experience “Ego Death” and become unified with a “higher power.” Others use the term more broadly to explain away their recreational pursuits.
The Psychonaut sub-reddit is a place where users frequently post questions about what they can expect from previously unexplored kratom strains. With 312,000 members, it should go without saying that posts are varied in topic, but the Mitragyna speciosa plant has been one of the most talked about substances on the this and other online forums.
Past subjects have included quitting kratom, kratom withdrawal, kratom hangover and microdosing kratom. Users often discuss the differences between vendors as well as the benefits of buying kratom capsules versus raw powder.
Kratom Psychonaut Wiki (psychonautwiki.org/wiki/Kratom) is another popular spot for the uninitiated psychonaut, one that illuminates the genus of the Ayurvedic herb and its mechanism of action. It is also one of few resources that bother to inform noobs of the facts about kratom legality.
As I try to stress in almost all of my posts, kratom and its alkaloids—mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine—are not approved for medicinal use by the FDA. On the contrary, the administration has ruled that there is inconclusive scientific proof of the compound’s purported benefits.
When approaching a substance such as M. speciosa for the first time, psychonauts should be aware of what they can anticipate. In fact, I would go so far to say it is beneficial to their well-being to understand the pros and cons of a compound’s potential effects.
Kratom Psychonaut Wiki does just that by reminding them of this substance’s psychoactive properties while illustrating its many indole alkaloids. The page is also quick to point out that kratom effects are subjective and based on anecdotal reports from recreational users and experimental parties.
If you are a psychonaut who intends to buy kratom online, be sure to familiarize yourself with these potential effects and the adverse effects which may occur as a result of kratom consumption. Be safe, be smart and be well. Feel free to share your experience with us in the comments.
