What Is Kratom?
Kratom is not a new product, but it is new to many people in the USA. Kratom is made from the leaves of a very specific type of evergreen tree. This tree, Mitragyna speciosia, grows throughout Southeast Asia. Although harvested from old natural forests, the trees are now also grown on large plantations and farms. The trees are actually in the coffee family, and some of these trees can grow to be 100 feet or more in height.
The leaves are harvested and dried, and this process is unique to the different plantations or those harvesting the leaves. In Southeast Asia, Indonesia, and Thailand, these leaves have been used for centuries as a herbal drug. The leaves can be brewed into a tea or chewed, and it can also be dried and powdered or used as an extract. Historically, it is a natural option that has been used to boost energy, provide relaxation, and help manage pain.
The Basics of Kratom
Different types of kratom are produced, including red, white, green, and even golden varieties. It is typically ground into a powder and used in different products. There is also a kratom extract, which is also used in different products or in other types of edibles and beverages, like our kratom gummies.
Unlike CBD, which works with the endocannabinoid system in the body, kratom interacts with the opioid receptors in the brain. Like many natural products, kratom is regulated by each state. It is illegal in a small handful of states and also in different counties and cities within states.
