History of Kratom
Mitragyna Speciosa is a tropical deciduous and evergreen tree in the coffee family (Rubiaceae) native to Southeast Asia in the Indochina and Malesia floristic regions, and leaves are chewed to uplift mood. M. Speciosa is indigenous to Thailand and, despite growing in the country, has been outlawed for 70 years and was originally banned because it was reducing the Thai government's tax revenue from opium distribution.
It was first formally described by the Dutch colonial botanist Pieter Korthals. The genus was named Mitragyna by Korthals because the stigmas in the first species he examined resembled the shape of a Bishop's Mitre. It is botanically related to the genera Corynanthe and Uncaria and shares some similar biochemistry.
About The Kratom Tree
Mitragyna Speciosa trees usually grow to a height of 12–30 ft (3.7–9.1 m) tall and 15 ft (4.6 m) wide, although some species can reach 40–100 ft (12–30 m) in height. Mitragyna Speciosa can be either evergreen or deciduous depending on the climate and environment in which it is grown. The stem is erect and branching. The leaves of the Kratom tree are a dark green color and can grow to over 7 inches (180 mm) long and 4 inches (100 mm) wide, are ovate-acuminate in shape, and opposite in growth pattern. The flowers are yellow and round and tend to grow in clusters at the end of the branches. The leaves of M. Speciosa are elliptic and are smaller at the end of the branchlets and are pointed at the tip. The leaves have a round heart-shape at the base with the petioles between 2 to 4 centimeters long. The flowers are crowded in round terminal inflorescences which are three to five centimeters long. The calyx-tube is short and cup-shaped, with round lobes. The corolla-tube is five millimeters long with three millimeter long lobes and smooth and revolute in between.
Botanical Process of Kratom
At PurKratom, our Kratom is sourced directly from the same farmers from Indonesia, and we do not outsource from other farmers. Kratom can be grown in many environments but it is best grown in warm, humid climates. Once its leaves have reached maturity, it is then picked. The reason behind picking it at this time is so that the alkaloid content remains strong. Once leaves are picked, they undergo a drying process and then they are grounded into a fine powdered-like consistency.
How to use Kratom
Traditionally, Kratom has been chewed fresh or brewed into a tea for generations. Due to its bitter taste, westerners have been creative to make the leaf palatable. The crushing up of the leaves and turning them into powder allows for easy ingestion.
There are several methods to take powdered Kratom, one way is putting the powder into your mouth and then drinking a big sip of water and mixing it in your mouth before swallowing. You can also just mix it into any sort of liquid beverage. The other ways you take kratom is by mixing it into your food, dispensing it into capsules for a measured dosage, and also turning it into a paste. By turning it into a paste, you are making it easier to swallow when drinking water.
There are plenty of Kratom recipes one can try. You can make a chocolate Kratom milkshake which is said to be the best way to ingest Kratom for masking the taste. Tea is another great way to take Kratom. To hide the bitter taste, implement a sweetener like an agave or honey.
