Title: Ancient drug might be partial solution to opioid crisis
Abstract: [Kratom]’s a leafy plant from South East Asia from the coffee family that some say could be an alternative to opioids and may help put a dent in the record number overdose deaths in Canada.
University of British Columbia Okanagan (UBCO) assistant professor, Zach Walsh, is the co-author of a study that concludes that Kratom can’t be overlooked as a tool to combat the opioid crisis.
