A question often heard and seen in the forums that are related to kratom and usage of other herbal supplements is the following ;

“Will it be possible to detect kratom usage by a urinalysis check?”

Simply said, Yes it can…But, do read on. There is only a very few issolated cases (see below) of a documented drug test case where a person’s urine was being tested for mitragynine. Intake of kratom powder can  indeed lead to a detectable content of kratom 
substance residue and its metabolites in the urine.

But what is certain, on the other hand, that kratom is not examined in even the most extensive drugs test that a person will come across if he ever finds him or herself a drugs-screening position.  

Even if you are being tested for work, school, probation parole or for the Armed Forces, in whatever country, they will most certainly not test you for kratom use. Given that kratom is legal in all of North American and many of the European Union countries, there is no clear reason to test  for it. So it is not included in a drug test.

Another question that some worry about, related to this is the following.
“Will using kratom cause or show a false positive test result on a drug test?”

No it will not, simply said. 

The active alkaloids in kratom are very different from anything you are being tested for in a normal NIDA5 or even the most extended 10-panel urinalysis test. It is not very possible that mitragynine, or any of the other alkaloids etc, could cause a false positive for morphine, methadone or anything else that is tested for as a substance in these tests.

However, these is some medications that may result in a false positive conclusion in a drug test. Like Ibuprofen and pseudoephedrine which are common examples of these. Likewise 
there is of course the bagels with poppy seeds and some other poppy decorated bakery products that will show as an opiate as well, due to the 24 or more half life.

One anecdote tells us that before at some military test facility  they actually did hair tests as opposed to urine, merely because they are very accurate. Some test persons ate poppy seed decorated bagels, as part of their breakfast. Therefor everyone tested positive for opiates (heroin) after eating a bagel. So consider that when taking a bagel and the pee test the same day.

If you are being drug tested also, make sure to tell the testing entity about all prescription and OTC medicines you are taking to avoid such problems.  There is no need to tell them about your kratom use.

The previously mentioned case of kratom detection can be found here.
