Interesting facts about Kratom

Kratom (or Mitragyna Speciosa) is a tree native to the tropical forests of Southeast Asia. Its leaves have been used since ancient times for their intoxicating, stimulating and healing properties. The active ingredient in kratom is mitragynine, which contains alkaloids.

 

A low dose of kratom has a stimulating effect, while a higher dose has a calming effect.

 

It has recently been marketed in the West as a recreational drug and for its properties that relieve the symptoms of withdrawal syndrome.

Kratom is also used for alcohol and other substances that do not help a person.

Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) is a tree in the Rubiaceae family native to the tropical forests of Southeast Asia, the Philippines and New Guinea, growing 4 to 16 feet tall.

It is known by different names in different places: kratom, biak or ketum in Malaysia, krathom or thom in Thailand.

Chemical composition and dosage

The leaves of the kratom tree contain more than 40 different alkaloids. The composition and pharmacology of kratom are complex and have not been adequately studied. The main alkaloids responsible for kratom's psychoactive effects are mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine.

 

The concentration of mitragynine in the dry leaves of trees from Thailand is 66% while in Malaysian trees it is 12%. The proportion and concentration of the alkaloids can vary greatly depending on the maturity and variety of the plant.

 

Commercial products sold as chromates generally contain a variety of phytochemical components, and the concentration of the alkaloids can vary widely. They usually contain a mixture of kratom powder and added extracts. In terms of leaf stripe color, there are often different types of kratom on the market: red, green, or white. Different types of kratom have different effects in terms of stimulation, mood swings, or pain relief.

 

In terms of dosage, one to three leaves are usually chewed to feel the effects, although users accustomed to use can chew multiple times a day. The kratom dry leaf usually weighs around 1.7 grams, which means that the usual doses are between 1 and 5 grams, although this depends on the potency of each plant.
