Kratom or Mitragyna Speciosa is a tree native to Southeast Asia.  Being part of the coffee family, the leaves of the tree have been used as an herbal drug for hundreds of years. Kratom can be psychoactive, pain relieving, or a stimulant. It is also used as an opioid replacement containing alkaloids that act as mu-opioid receptor antagonist. Kratom is most often found in powder or capsules but can be available in teas or extracts also. Different people, places and resources will all say something slightly different about Kratom, but trying it for yourself is the only true test.  It is recommended to try different strains of Kratom because all affects cannot be listed on each bag, and the body could build a tolerance. 

The effects of Kratom come from the 3 main strains: Red, White and Green. The color is identified by the main vein on the leaf that distinguishes how long it has been on the tree.  All 3 strains can relieve discomfort, help with pain, and provide mood elevation.  A high general distinction is that the Red strain is used more for pain and relaxation, the White is used for Energy and Focus, and Green for Euphoric effects and Mood enhancement.  Doses range from 3-5 pills or .5-3 teaspoons for powder.
