One of those psychoactive herbs in our smartshop is Kratom. The Latin name for Kratom is Mitragyna Speciosa. The Kratom tree originates from Thailand, but is also popular in other Southeast-Asian countries and has been grown and used for thousands of years by the local civilization. The stimulating and uplifting effects of low doses of Kratom are comparable to the effects of cocaine, while the calming, neurotic effects of high doses of Kratom are more similar to the effects of opium. Kratom is available as a dried herb (both cut and powdered), as an herbal extract or as a resin extract.
