What is kratom ? 

    
     Kratom is a tree native to Southeast Asia (Thailand, Malaysia and Myanmar). Its botanical name is Mitragyna speciosa. The leaves of kratom have been used as an herbal tea from time immemorial by tribes of Southeast Asia. It is used as a stimulant (in low doses), sedative (in high doses), pain reducer, medicine for diarrhea, and treatment for opiate addiction. It has been used as an aide against alcoholism, tobacco withdrawal, and as a male tonic.
