                                         Information @ a Glance
General
  • Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) is a medicinal leaf harvested from a large tree native to Southeast Asia in the Rubiaceae, first documented by Dutch colonial botanist Korthals. It is botanically related to the Corynanthe, Cinchona and Uncaria genera and shares some similar biochemistry. It is in the same family as coffee, and the psychoactive plant Psychotria viridis. Other species in the Mitragyna genus are used medicinally in Africa, and also used for their wood.
  • Kratom contains many alkaloids including mitragynine , mitraphylline, and 7-hydroxymitragynine . Kratom has many potential medicinal uses, for example as a low grade analgesic comparable to codeine or propoxyphene, as an alternative to methadone, and as a source of other chemicals with a wide range of beneficial activities which could be isolated from the psychoactive constituents.

Growth & Cultivation

  • Kratom refers to the plant Mitragyna speciosa Korth., a tree indigenous to Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. In Thailand, kratom is mostly grown in the central and southern regions of the country, and only rarely in the north. The Mitragyna genus, part of the family Rubiaceae, is found in tropical and sub-tropical regions of Asia and Africa. Botanically and chemically, kratom is closely related to yohimbe. Other relatives include cat's claw, with which it shares several active chemicals, coffee and cinchona
  • Mitragyna speciosa is a beautiful, hardy, and extremely tall tree, sometimes reaching heights of 300 meters! The seeds produced by these trees couldn't be more delicate; they grow in podheads, that contain about 50 seed pods per head, and each pod can contain about 50 seeds. The seeds are no larger than a sliver. Because the seeds are so delicate and so many, they also have a low germination rate as well.

Production

  • The traditional usage of Kratom is only known from Thailand and Malaysia. In Thailand it has been used since hundreds of years as a substitute for opium. Thai workers use it to get through a hard day of work. There are some reports from the nineteenth century which also mention traditional usage in Malaysia.  Pharmacological studies of the main active constituent (mitragynine) began soon thereafter.
  • Super Indo Kratom from Indonesia is our newest offering and is the highest-quality. It is finely powdered and is about 25% more potent smelling than the Thailand strain.

  • Kratom is a controlled substance in Thailand, Australia, Malaysia and Myanmar (Burma). A handful of people in Malaysia and possibly other countries are lobbying their governments to allow medical research into kratom as a potential prescription substance.

Application

  • In addition to being used as a narcotic drug in its own right, it is often used as a substitute for opium when opium is unavailable, or to moderate opium addiction.

  • In folk medicine, it is often used to treat diarrhea. A small minority of users use kratom to prolong sexual intercourse.

  • The most dominant one in kratom is mitraphylline, which has shown activity as a vasodilator and lowers blood pressure.

  • One study has shown that it increases memory retention performance in animals treated with amnesic drugs. It also acts as a diuretic

Market

  • Over 100 kilos of this mystery herb may have been distributed by Phillips worldwide at prices ranging from $200.00 to $600.00 per kilo, there is a lot of bad material on the market.

There are 2 kinds of Kratom available on the market today; one finds it origin in Bali, Indonesia and the other originates from Thailand. They are both the same plant, Mitragyna speciosa, but when consumed they do have a little bit a different effect on the mind.
