What is Kratom?
If you’re looking to buy kratom here, in layman’s terms, is what it is. Kratom is a plant from Southeast Asia and is in the same family as the coffee tree. It’s scientific name is Mitragyna speciosa. The leaves contain chemicals that produce a psychoactive effect for many people. It doesn’t get you “high” but is reported to have several deseriable effects. The active chemicals are from the opioid family but are not opiates so the effects are similar but not the same. They are reported to range from a stimulating effect to mild sedation and the most notable aspect right now is helping people with opiate withdrawals.
