Will Kratom Show Up on a Drug Test?

Kratom has been a controversial drug. It has long fought its way in legality issues and other health-related concerns. It was considered a psychoactive drug that could alter the brain chemistry. It was banned in many countries including the United States of America.

However, after scientific experts studied this medicinal plant extensively, it was confirmed that this natural drug is not dangerous for one’s health. Since then, almost 48 states in the U.S. have lifted bans from this miracle plant, and the DEA has reversed their decision to mark it as Schedule I drugs  due to lack of studies on Kratom.

Kratom is extremely useful in helping people to withdraw from opiate addiction, and this is what adds to its popularity, considerably. If you have struggled with opiate dependency and you want to get rid of the disappointment that comes with the ‘POSITIVE’ that shows on the drug test, then it is high time that you switch to Kratom.

Kratom is an astounding drug that delivers similar effects as opiates but does not show up on Drug tests. According to many users reviews, it doesn’t give positive results on the test. Not even on the urine tests.

People, who work with organizations where employees have to take monthly drug tests, can benefit a lot from using Kratom. It will boost their energy the same way as opiates do, and it will keep them active and alert throughout the day.

Thus individuals can enhance their performance by being more productive at work and at the same time they can spare themselves from the opiates as well as the worries of drug tests.

But why is that so? Why does Kratom not show on a drug test? Let’s find out!

Why does Kratom not Show on a Drug Test?

Well, the credit should be given to its chemical makeup. Kratom belongs to the botanical family Mmitragyna Speciosa, which is the same as that of Coffee plant.

The species belonging to this family, especially the Kratom do not have the same chemistry like that of illegal narcotics. While they still can produce similar effects like stimulation, mild euphoria, energy boost, increased focused, calm and relaxation, and pain relief.

But the chemical composition of Kratom does not affect the brain at any level to achieve these results.

The alkaloids only interact with the opiate receptors to deliver opiate-like effects.

This is the reason why Kratom is a safe drug and helps with opiate withdrawal. It does not cause dependency and addiction. But it must be ensured that the Kratom, users are buying, it 100% natural and pure.

Several scam products in the market claim to be pure and best quality Kratom supplements, while unfortunately they are tainted with other substances to increase the effects.

Thus make sure that you survey the market properly before investing in any Kratom product.

However, there is a minimal chance that Kratom might show on a drug test. But that is only if the laboratory tests are exclusively meant to detect the mitragynine residue, for certain purposes.

The mitragynine residue and its metabolites can be detected through urine tests, but it is doubtful that someone may be asked to take Kratom drug test.

Since it is not a narcotic drug and its use is legal in most parts of the world, the chances of getting mitragynine tests done are very less.

Is it Likely to get False Positive with Kratom?

Getting a false positive with Kratom is a rarity. It is not possible that Kratom would show on a drug test.

However, there are exceptions in which people may have consumed Kratom medication or supplements right before the test, or they have been tested for the mitragynine, for some particular reasons. Otherwise, mitragynine, as well as the alkaloids in Kratom, do not give False Positive in any case.

Another reason that may contribute to a False Positive is the use of impure or tainted Kratom product or supplement that may be modified with narcotic drugs or other brain altering substances to give maximum satisfaction to the users.

Special Recommendations

People who are scheduled for a drug test should take care of certain things before their lab examination.

Although it is unlikely to get a Positive with Kratom on a drug test, it is recommended that people should avoid the use of this herbal plant at least a week before they schedule their appointment. This is to guarantee 100% desired results, which is a Negative drug test.

Final Words

So in case, you want to spare yourself from the worried of monthly drug tests at your workplace and yet want to feel confident and upbeat, replace other dangerous and harmful drugs with Kratom.

It will not only save you from your opiate addiction and other health-related concerns, but it would also protect your reputation in the eyes of the employer.
