Rapid Drug Tests for Kratom (KRA)

Kratom drug test is used to detect Mitragynine, an alkaloid of Kratom, found in a urine sample. Kratom was developed from a plant in the same family as coffee, is a drug that is sometimes used in the management of chronic pain and therapy for opiate addiction.

It is also taken recreationally for the high it produces. It interacts with opioid receptors in the brain, producing sedation, pleasure, and decreased pain, especially when users consume large amounts of the plant. Users report increased energy, sociability, and alertness instead of sedation when kratom is taken in small amounts.

Once considered a safe and natural analgesic, kratom is an emerging drug of abuse that, while currently legal in many States, as of April 2019, 10 states have taken action to ban Kratom as a “controlled” substance.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have linked many deaths in 27 states to kratom over an 18-month period. The people at the highest risk of kratom-involved deaths are those with a history of substance abuse.
