Dr. Jon starts off talking about the art show that took place in October 2022 at the new Cannabis Museum in Athens Ohio. Then we cover a study out of Thailand on kratom’s effects on alpha-glucosidase and lipase, enzymes that are inhibited by medications for the treatment of diabetes. We see how kratom and mitragynine compare to standard prescription medications, and talk about the traditional use and possible advantages and disadvantages of developing mitragynine into a diabetes treatment drug in the future.
