7-Hydroxymitragynine is an indole alkaloid that naturally occurs in the plant Mitragyna speciosa, commonly known as Kratom. The alkaloid acts as an agonist at the μ opioid receptor, with a potency around 17 times that of morphine. 7-Hydroxymitragynine is therefore thought to be the primary alkaloid responsible for the opioid effects of Kratom.
