Frequently Asked Questions

Kratom, or Mitragyna Speciosa, is a tree native to countries such as Malaysia, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, and Thailand. It is best known for the leaves which distribute over 40 different psychoactive compounds. Farmers harvest our Kratom leaves from these trees where they then begin the process of cultivation, drying, and crushing.

Our Kratom leaf is ground into a fine powder (or crushed if desired) to be consumed several different ways. Kratom is not currently approved by the FDA and several states have already banned this plant.

In small amounts kratom is a natural energy enhancer and produces an enhanced mood making work more pleasurable. In higher amounts it becomes more of a numbing painkiller and makes a very good alternative to prescription drugs.

If Kratom is not mixed with other drugs or a lot of alcohol it is very safe. There are many scientific journals that show exactly how safe kratom is. It is almost impossible to overdose on it and compared to opioid-based drugs Kratom does not cause respiratory failure.

Each Kratom strain is different for everyone. While there are many different types or names of Kratom, there are only three Kratom strains. Depending on what you are trying to achieve with your dose will determine which one becomes your favorite.
