WHO Decision on Kratom Review

Many nervously awaited the WHO Decision on its review of kratom. Kratom advocates will be thrilled to learn that the World Health Organization (WHO) decided not to recommend an international ban on kratom.

There were concerns that WHO’s Executive Committee on Drug Dependency (ECDD) would recommend international controls placed over kratom or a critical review that might have led to a recommendation to schedule the plant. While the WHO does not police or regulate substances, recommendations carry significant weight. fortunately,

In its report released this week, the ECDD voted 11-1 to monitor kratom rather than implement any controls. Members found “insufficient evidence” that kratom warrants a more in-depth review. The kratom community knows about its safety. However, WHO faced extreme pressure and misinformation from the FDA, and luckily, they let the science speak for itself.

Due to the efforts of the American Kratom Association and other associations and advocacy groups, more than 80,000 comments were submitted from the public, sharing their experiences with the plant.

Kingdom Kratom thanks everyone who took the time to submit comments to WHO. Kratom’s widespread use as an aid for both energy and pain and its worldwide historical use weighed heavily on the WHO’s decision/

    Not only was this good news, but it’s the right call. Overwhelming scientific evidence AND user input can’t be ignored, and since the WHO is supposed to represent the people, they did the right thing. Glad to hear it, thank you all for your efforts!

    Organic substances from the same Earth the humans Anthropos came from, cannot be banned. We the people did not put anyone in WHO.
    We did not elect them. They serve interests antithetical to best interests of humanity. Isn’t WHO the group that started this covid vaxx nightmare on the population of the world? Now perhaps people who are suffering and dying from the vaxx can get pain relief with Kratom.

    That just makes me so happy!!! Cause it really does help so many people. And it even helps me think more clearly and helps me with pain and energy, I’m so thankful for it.

    I’m a retired Victim-Witness Coordinator for a prosecuting office and I am SO relieved. This plant has kept me focused and off of alcohol going on nine years. It is my miracle plant. I don’t know where I would turn if it was banned World-Wide.
