An introduction to Kratom
Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) is a tropical tree from Southeast Asia. Traditional users in Asia chewed the leaves to improve mood and for medicinal purposes. Nowadays the leaves are dried and ground into fine kratom powder. This powder has a stimulating effect.
Furthermore, Kratom is not exactly a medicine, but has a positive influence on issues such as: restlessness, concentration, energy deficiency, sleeplessness, pain relief and stress. Kraatje has an extensive range of kratom powders, also available in kratom capsules.
Types of kratom
There are really only three types of Kratom (the Mitragyna Speciosa tree), the red, white and green. The Kratom trees grow mainly in Southeast Asia. The Kratom effects are strongly dependent on the alkaloid content of the Kratom leaves.
Therefore, The quality of Kratom is determined by region, age, harvesting method and the method of processing. We only do carry a few types of Kratom, because there are simply not many more! There are most predictive and wild Kratom denominations in circulation with the most diverse promised Kratom effects to make you believe that it is something special. We only sell good Kratom with simple names the color and harvest indicate regions (except the Red Thai because it’s not from Thailand).
All kinds of Kratom trees grow in various regions (Thai Kratom is not from Thailand, the trees are banned in Thailand since 1943!). On Bali there is not even a single Kratom tree! Kratom quality is determined by the region, the tree species (red or white vein vein in the leaf), age (the older the more Alkaloid) and most importantly the time, the techniques and the processing of the harvest.
In addition, This results in a high and in particular, consistent quality Kratom powder. You can also see this in the dark color and fine structure of our Kratom powders. The darker the older the trees and the finer the powder is, the easier it dissolves and is absorbed.
Kratom is a controlled substance in 16 countries and, in 2014, the FDA banned importing and manufacturing of kratom as a dietary supplement. As of 2018, there is growing international concern about a possible threat to public health from kratom use.
