What is Kratom?

Kratom is the common name for the Mitragyna speciosa Korthals, a tree that originates in South-East Asia. In Thailand the leaves of this tree have been used for many centuries for their medicinal and psychoactive qualities, which are comparable to that of opiate-based drugs. Thai workers use the leaves as a stimulant that activates mind and body. It is also used to help people get rid of an opium addiction. In recent times the use of kratom as a recreational drug has also gained popularity in the West.
