What is Kratom? Kratom, also known as Mitragyna Speciosa is a relative to the coffee plant. It is a leafy tree that can grow up to 15 meters in height and is found in the rainforests of Southeast Asia, where it has long been used in traditional herbal medicine to treat pain, boost energy, alleviate anxiety and depression symptoms, and promote feelings of wellness and inner peace. We did a podcast series on this plant to explain its benefits for those who are dealing with addiction issues and want an alternative method for recovery. FDA claims kratom is not safe and poses a threat but this has not been proven.
