Kratom is an amazing herb that has been used for years for everything from pain management and relaxation in high doses, along with sexual longevity and mild euphoria in medium doses. Kratom also works great for mental focus and clarity in low doses. As a natural herbal pain management solution that actually works, and is considerably less addictive than any street based or pharmaceutical opiate pain killers. Many people who currently use prescription pain killers, use Kratom to ween off, and/or switch altogether because its a 100% natural solution with far less side effects. Additionally, the withdrawal symptoms after habitual use are only slightly worse than coffee, which is a walk in the park compared to all opiates. Last but not least, you can actually enjoy comfortable pain relief and still be able to function during day to day activities.
What may seem new to most, Kratom has been around for thousands of years and is native to South East Asia. Kratom has been used for years by the native people and has only recently grown in popularity in North America. Kratom is a very unique herb that offers the body an excellent way to deal with pain from both physical ailments, as well as mental issues, and has often been used to alleviate the stresses caused from detoxification of opiates. Although Kratom is not an opiate it tends to affect similar brain receptors, which in the end, enables it to have similar effects of Kratom without the intense withdrawal symptoms of opiates. Kratom can still be addictive but several reports from users describe the withdrawal symptoms to be approximately half as bad and lasting around half as long.
Kratom, Krathom, Ketum, Cratom, Kakuam, Ithang and Thom is a leafy tree native to Southeast Asia (Thailand, Malaysia, Myanmar, and elsewhere). Its latin botanical name is Mitragyna speciosa. Kratom trees grow wild in Southeast Asia, and in Thailand, strangely the consumption of the leaf was made illegal. I’ve been lucky enough to visit the countries where kratom grows; my best tree description would be height between 3 & 40 meters depending on the age of the tree and birds eye view would show a circumference spread of over 15 feet. Now the leaves and beautiful, they are a glossy dark green color, very thick and hardy. The biggest leaf I found was around 8 inches in length and 4.5 inches wide. All evergreen trees shed their leaves throughout the year and the shed leaves are replaced with new ones. This ensures a regular supply for those who use the leaves as described in this site. If you plan on growing Kratom plants you should water and feed them regularly, they enjoy rich, fertile soil and plenty of sunlight. There are two areas in the US where Kratom plants can be grown outside all year round. These place are zone 10 climates and small pockets in Southern California and Southern Florida enjoy this luxury. If you not in climate zone 10, you can still grow plants, and they survive very well indoors all year round.
