            A plant that has been used for centuries in many parts of Asia, Kratom is now catching on as a promising alternative treatment to help many people in the U.S. It’s legal in most states and easy-to-use so trying it shouldn’t be a challenge. Kratom is a unique plant, the leaves of this tree produce chemicals called alkaloids, which have opiate-like effects when consumed, giving users feelings of relief from pain, fatigue, and anxiety while still being able to think clearly and enjoy life's pleasures. Kratom’s versatility and ease of consumption makes it simple to choose the right one for your needs and add it to your daily routine easily.


            Kratom is a tropical evergreen tree in the coffee family native to Southeast Asia.  For hundreds if not thousands of years, kratom has been a staple in cultural Asian medicine. Traditionally, the leaves of the kratom tree were and are chewed fresh or they’re brewed into a tea for energy, uplift mood, support relief, and promote overall well-being. There are plenty of kratom recipes one could try using kratom in powder form. Aside from teas, there are recipes for kratom cookies, muffins, and just about anything you can bake. Some have also added kratom to smoothies, juices, even coffee.


            Alternatively, if you’re entirely new to kratom and are not brave with new tastes, flavors, or just not a fan of all-natural earthy texture, then kratom capsules would probably be best. They also provide a more precise dose and do a great job of hiding the taste. If you are new to kratom, it is usually recommended to start small (1-2 grams) and build your tolerance to an appropriate desired amount. There are different strains for different uses so make sure to explore and see what works for you.
