History of Kratom
Kratom, scientifically known as Mitragyna speciosa, is a tree that grows in the tropical rainforests of Southeast Asia. At Original Harvest, we are proud to offer premium, 100% pure and organic kratom powders from our partner farm in Indonesia, all lab-tested and sold as loose powder or in capsule form.
Our kratom comes from many different regions:
- Malaysia; including Borneo,
- Indonesia; including Bali, Sumatra, Riau, Kalimantan, and near the Kapuas River
Just like each country has its own history, so too does the kratom tree and its use and legality in each region in which it is harvested. In this section of our extensive, informative library, we take a look at the history of kratom in its native regions, as well as its history here in North America, where it is quickly gaining widespread recognition and appreciation, primarily as a natural and safer alternative to opioid pain medications.
