Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) is indigenous to the rain forests of South East Asia, mainly Thailand and Malaysia. It is a large tree that can reach 15 meters. Over 25 alkaloids have been isolated from kratom, the most important being mitragynine.
In Thailand it was used in many dishes, before it was banned by the government.
As mitragynine suppresses opiate withdrawal, kratom is said to be a (temporary) cure for opium addiction. A small minority of users use kratom to prolong sexual intercourse.
These are 100% top quality leaves, not a blend. You only need a small quantity. Kratom Thai leaves are one of the strongest ones available.
Kratom Thai Effects
The effects of the Thai kratom leaves tend to be less euphoric than the Bali and Malaysia kratom leaves. However, Thai kratom leaves are said to be more energizing. Therefore, it depends on your mood and your wishes which kratom you want to use.
Effects come on within five to ten minutes after use, and last for several hours. Kratom has both stimulating and depressant qualities as if chewing coca leaves and smoking opium simultaneously. Some sources say that it is a stimulant in lower doses, becoming sedative in higher doses. The dominant effects seem to be similar to opiate drugs, including analgesia, roughly comparable in strength to codeine. Unlike opiates, mitragynine does not appear to cause nausea or vomiting. The feeling has been described as happy, strong, and active, with a strong desire to do work. Other effects of mitragynine are local anaesthesia and central nervous system depression. Heavy use can result in a prolonged sleep.
How to use Kratom
The leaves of kratom are ground and eaten, usually followed by drinking warm water, tea or coffee. Leaves can also be made into a tea, or a crude resin extraction can be made. This resin extract is made by preparing a water extract of the leaves, boiling it down, and then shaping it into small ball.
A normal dose contains 3 - 5 grams, depending on the potency of the leaves.
We advise not to participate in traffic or other activities that demand your concentration.
Usage of kratom in high dosages may be mildly habit-forming. Acute side effects include dry mouth, loss of appetite and constipation. Side effects from long term use include weight loss, insomnia, and a darkening of the skin, particularly on the cheeks.
Do not combine with MAO-inhibitors.
