We have been waiting to hear from the World Health Organization’s Expert Committee on Drug Dependence regarding their meeting that took place on October 11th to October15 2021.
Part of their discussions revolved around the potential to recommend a worldwide ban on kratom.
After digging through the WHO website, we were able to obtain a copy of the recommendations.
The ECDD is recommending:
“The Committee concluded that there is insufficient evidence to recommend a critical review of kratom. With respect to mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine, the Committee, except for one member, also concluded that there is insufficient evidence to recommend a critical review at this time.
Recommendation: The Committee recommended that kratom, mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine be kept under surveillance by the WHO Secretariat.”
