All About Kratom
The world is experiencing a revolution in wellness thanks to a simple plant. Kratom is changing the lives of millions, and Kats Botanicals has become the supplier of choice for pure, premium, lab-tested Kratom people rely on every day.
Read on to learn about Kratom’s history, its uses, and what to expect if you’re new to this amazing botanical product.
Varieties of Kratom
All Kratom products come from the same species of tree—Mitragyna Speciosa. This tree is native to southeast Asia, where it grows naturally in places like Indonesia, Thailand, and Malaysia.
There are dozens of different cultivation, harvesting, and drying methods that can be used to produce unique ‘strains’, each with their own alkaloid profiles and subjective effects for the user.
Kratom is broadly classified into four main categories: Red Vein, Green Vein, White Vein, and Specialty Blends.
Kratom is the informal name of the Mitragyna Speciosa plant. This plant has been culturally used as a wellness enhancing botanical aid for hundreds of years, and its history originates in southeast Asia.
Kratom trees produce broad, thick leaves and can grow 30+ feet high in the right conditions. The leaves of the Kratom tree are often chewed whole or ground into a fine powder to use as an addition to tea, coffee, juices, or smoothies and yogurts.
The leaves of the Kratom tree contain more than a dozen unique, naturally occurring plant alkaloids that work together to produce the positive effects the plant is known for. Among these alkaloids, two are especially important: Mitragynine and 7-Hydroxymitragynine. Different Kratom strains contain different ratios of these alkaloids, which is why the effects they produce vary widely across the Kratom strain spectrum.
Many factors contribute to how potent a strain is or what types of effects it has. These factors include the soil type the Kratom tree was grown in, the environmental humidity and amount of sunlight received, the level of maturity the tree was at when leaves were harvested, and the drying methods used to create the final powder.
Kats Botanicals provides a wide variety of Kratom strains all sourced from 100% organic, ethically operated plantations located in Kratom’s homeland of southeast Asia.
