What is Kratom?
Kratom, or Mitragyna Speciosa, is a tropical evergreen tree in the coffee (Rubiaceae) tree family. This plant grows naturally in Southeast Asia and is indigenous to Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Papua, New Guinea, and Myanmar. Kratom is available in several strains, primarily green vein, white vein, and red vein. Each strain type is associated with a slightly different alkaloid profile. Green vein and white vein Kratom strains tend to contain more stimulating alkaloids, whereas red vein Kratom strains tend more opioid-agonist type alkaloids. Kratom has been traditionally consumed in the form of fresh leaves (chewing) or in the form of tea. More recently, it has become popular to consume Kratom in the form of finely ground leaf powder, or capsules containing finely ground leaf powder.Continue reading What is Kratom? How to Use Kratom?
