What does MITRAGYNA SPECIOSA mean?
- Mitragyna speciosa
- Mitragyna speciosa commonly called kratom, kratum, or krathom is a tropical deciduous and evergreen tree in the coffee family native to Southeast Asia in the Indochina and Malesia floristic regions. The leaf of the tree has been traditionally used for its medicinal properties. Mitragyna speciosa is a psychoactive tree, and the leaves of the tree have been chewed to uplift mood as well as to treat a large number of health problems. M. Speciosa is indigenous to Thailand and, despite growing naturally in the country, has been outlawed for 70 years due largely to the properties of kratom curing opium addicts and reducing the Thai government's tax revenue from opium distribution. Mitragyna speciosa is frequently the subject of media reports which assert that kratom causes a variety of side effects, though reviews of the scientific literature and population reports show these claims to be inaccurate or unfounded. No reported overdose of Kratom has ever been reported in medical literature, and Kratom is frequently used as a natural alternative to treat depression, anxiety, addiction, diabetes, chronic pain and fatigue.
