What is Kratom?
Kratom ( Mitragyna speciosa ) is a leaf harvested from a large tree native to Southeast Asia. It is in the same family as the coffee tree. Although using Kratom is common wherever it grows throughout Southeast Asia, this amazing plant remained virtually unknown outside of that area until the last few years.
