What are the benefits?
Kratom is derived from the leaf of a tree native to Southeast Asia. There, it has a long tradition as a gentle stimulant and pain reliever for those working in the extreme heat, as well as for relaxation and, as a social lubricant much like its botanical relative, coffee. Kratom has also been used to stop diarrhea, treat diabetes, and as a way to quit opiate addiction.
History of Kratom
The use of kratom by the natives of Thailand was first documented in Western literature in 1836 by Low. It was in wide use there long before the Dutch arrived to colonize and trade with the area. There is some dispute over when kratom was first brought to the USA for sale. The first records appear in about the year 2000, when Americans seeking a natural herb to help overcome the widespread habituation to synthetic opioids, such as Oxycodone, began widespread importation of the herb from Indonesia where it grows both wild and in cultivated plantations.
