Indo Kratom Strains

Kratom, also known as Mitragyna speciosa, is an evergreen tropical tree from the coffee family and is native to Southeast Asia. The plant is indigenous to Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Papua New Guinea, and Myanmar. It has been used as a form of traditional medicine since it contains stimulant-like effects and, above all, opioid properties. When the leaves of the Mitragyna speciosa are crushed into powder form, they form a powder known as Kratom. Kratom extract vs powder is a standard comparison, as the extract is a concentrated powder form with a higher alkaloid content per volume.
