Frequently asked questions

What is Kratom?

Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) is a tropical tree that’s native to Southeast Asia, where kratom leaves have been used for hundreds of years in native medicine. Belonging to the coffee family, it harbors a diverse array of alkaloids known to produce a wide spectrum of effects. There are various methods to cultivate and process kratom, each contributing to its unique qualities and effects. Our commitment to quality begins with sourcing from a family-owned farm in Pontianak, Indonesia. To guarantee safety and consistency, every batch undergoes rigorous lab testing, reflecting our dedication to providing the finest Kratom.

How Does Kratom work?
