So it’s official kratom has been banned in the state of Georgia, as we go state by state the question looms what will take kratom’s place as the new alternative for million’s of people nationwide. In this episode I cover some of the plant based solutions I’m looking at right now to find kratom alternatives and you should check them out too.
News broke recently that Georgia did in fact pass the bill that bans the sale and use of kratom within the state. This isn’t shocking but I’d say disappointing and even discouraging for me and millions of you out there that use it everyday. It’s a constant battle and fear of is my state next. The ban has been on going for years from the DEA, to the FDA all the way to this current administration which attempted to ban the export using the World Health Organizations Authority globally. All of these attempts failed, the last stand is ofcourse state to state.
Naturally many people will begin seeking alternatives within the state of Georgia from consumers to retailers. In this part I want to break down many of the plant based substances I’ve been looking at as a potential replacement, unfortunately none have had the same exact properties as kratom. This was going to be a difficult search from the get go and I knew this but I also know that hundreds of people rely on me nationwide to provide safe and effective solutions for their supplement needs. This is why finding kratom alternatives now is critical.
Finding Kratom Alternatives Top Choices So Far
Mitragyna Javinica: Relative of kratom. Also grows in southeast Asia.
• Pros: mildly euphoric, relaxes muscles and mind similarly to kratom.
• Cons: overall more mild than kratom, less prominent mood effects and pain relief.
Mitragyna Hirsuta: Another relative of the kratom plant.
• Pros: Seems to be stimulating and pain relieving almost as well as kratom.
• Cons: Little to no euphoria, sedation. Higher doses needed makes it pretty uneconomical, especially as it is only available at high prices to begin with.
Kava: Root that grows in the Pacific Islands. The process is more involved than kratom, but it can actually be a fun little ritual and social activity.
• Pros: Very relaxing (much more than kratom), slight pain relief (not as much as kratom). Kava probably has the most visibility of any of these, meaning there are more vendors, better prices etc. As a bonus it makes your mouth all numb which is cool.
• Cons: Much more expensive than kratom, not really much euphoria. Can be too sedating.
Akuamma: Seed that grows in Africa. Indigenous people used it to treat pain among other things.
• Pros: Kills pain effectively, probably the best on the list. Pretty cost effective since you only need about 2 seeds. Seems pretty relaxing as well.
• Cons: horribly bitter to the point of inedibility. Short duration. No effects on mood, euphoria or anything besides the pain killing and relaxing effects, making it more practical than recreational.
Kanna: Plant from South Africa used for thousands of years for pain and hunger. One of the best.
• Pros: Slight pain relief (only mild). Amazing mood boost, like 0 to 100 puts you in an outstanding mood. Relatively cheap. Multiple roa’s to explore: oral, sublingual, smoked, apparently snorted although I’ve never attempted.
• Cons: Not all that great for pain, not really relaxation per se, just great mood boost.
Blue Lotus: Flowers used by the ancient Egyptians for their relaxing qualities.
• Pros: One of the most relaxing. Mild euphoria. Slight mood improvement.
• Cons: no effect on pain
Damiana: central American plant used for aphrodisiac properties.
• Pros: relaxing, may have said aphrodisiac qualities although it may be placebo. Felt like it was mildly aphrodisiac
• Cons: Subtle, barely perceptible effects. No effect on pain, euphoria
Lettuce Opium (lactucarium): used as a pain killer in medieval times, it has been forgotten for a few hundred years.
• Pros: Second most relaxing behind kava. Great pain killing effects on par with akuamma or at times even better.
• Foul taste. Subtle on its own, great in combination. No euphoria, only slight mood change.
Conclusion On Finding Kratom Alternatives

I will continue to tap into my resources and relationships to further develop new and sustainable options for the future. Finding kratom alternatives has never been more important than now.
