What is kratom?

Overview:

        Kratom, also known as Mitragyna Speciosa, refers to the leaves of a South East Asian tree that are closely related to the Coffee & Tea family.  The Kratom tree is found in a number of countries within Southeast Asia, specifically Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia where it thrives in wet, humus-rich areas and mineral abundant soil. This tree grows leaves that according to research are abundantly rich in therapeutic and soothing properties, therefore considered to be one of the most sacred herbs in the world. In Southeast Asia, Kratom powder and leaves have been used in ceremonies, rituals and folk medicine for centuries and only in recent years have made it’s way to the western world.  The tree normally grows to a height ranging between 12 to 30 feet tall and approximately 15 feet wide, though some species have been reported to exceed 70 feet in height. All Kratom strains contain 2 effective alkaloids, Mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine, which are known for pain relieving, anti-anxiety, energetic, and euphoric properties.
