What is Kratom?
Kratom (Mitragyna Speciosa) is a tropical evergreen tree that belongs to the coffee family. It is native to Southeast Asia, and is found most commonly in Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, and Papua New Guinea, going by other local names such as Biak, Ketum, Kakuam, Ithan or Thom. It is not the tree itself, however, or its abundance of names that Kratom is particularly known for: it is the leaves which give Kratom its fame. While it has a history of traditional uses, Kratom leaves have slowly been gaining traction in Western countries for its psychoactive properties.
The History of Kratom
Traditionally, Kratom was used by manual labourers such as farmers and fishermen to combat fatigue and enhance work productivity. It was a popular opiate-substitute particularly in Malaysia during its period of opiate scarcity, and in Thailand is more commonly used as a self-treatment substance for medical symptoms or problems such as diabetes, fever and pain. It has held a place in ceremonial practices for centuries, and in some rural areas of Asia, is still consumed in community gatherings. With its modern spread to the West, and staying true to its roots in Asia, it has become a popular and natural alternative for medication and recovery from opioid withdrawal.
The Effects of Kratom
Kratom has natural psychoactive properties which causes feelings of euphoria and relaxation, in turn creating antidepressant effects that makes it medically beneficial for those who suffer from severe chronic pain, mood disorders, and even for users withdrawing from opioid use.
How to Use Kratom
Kratom leaves can be used fresh or dry, and can be made into powders, or extracts, which are more potent, either of which can then be smoked or brewed in drinks. It can also take the form of capsules, and a more traditional method of consumption is by simply chewing on the leaves. The substance can be bitter, so many users opt to infuse it in sweets such as juices or pastries to contrast or balance out the flavours.
Is Kratom Safe?
It is best to consume with caution and be moderate when increasing dosage. Since it varies between strains, we recommend beginning with a small amount for beginners, only increasing in increments later for reaching the desired effects.
