Important note: The DEA postponed their decision to ban this herb back in September. They did say something about reconsidering it, and the date of the first of January, 2017 was given. Follow me on your social media, and subscribe to my newsletter to stay informed about what's going on.

            The same thing that happened with Coca, Khat, Cannabis, Mushrooms, and other sacred plants almost happened all over again with Kratom, and its called prohibition. We win.


Geographical And Cultural

                 Did you know that Kratom is called "Ketum" and "Biak-biak" in Malaysia? [1] Not too many people in the west know this stuff or talk too much about it. In its natural wild habitat, it grows in swamps and valleys. There are even strains of the Mitragyna in Vietnam. Very rarely a vendor may have a strain or two from there. Geographically, it grows in Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia, and areas that most people had no idea it was native to like Laos, Cambodia, the Philippines, New Guinea, East and West Africa, and India.[1]Can you believe that? I don't think I've seen a single vendor yet with strains from Laos, Cambodia, the Philippines, or the other rare areas. The thing is though, they are out there. Today, Indonesia dominates the international Kratom trade.


Throughout history medicinal plants such as this one have had a million and one uses. What most people in the west are aware of, as far as what it's good for goes, is very little compared to what it can actually do. It's very much new to us and we are learning more every day. I hear it has a history of use in Thai Buddhism too, yet I need a solid reference to confirm that statement. At any rate I find it an obvious spiritual catalyst. Because of this, I find it worthy of the term "entheogen". An entheogen is basically any kind of botanical or substance that enhances spirituality and self exploration, and self discovery. In the next paragraph, you'll learn some of its traditional medicinal applications.


Villagers in Thailand and Malaysia have long used Kratom for treating cough, fever, diarrhea and even the common cold.[1] This is no surprise seeing as how it contains many well known antioxidants, ECGC from Green Tea & Chocolate, along with many other pharmacologically active phytochemical constituents. They also ground up the leaves and used them topically on the body to treat pain, and even to treat ill animals.[1] While its reputation in the west for having a certain number of medical benefits is becoming more and more common, even more knowledge on the herb will be mainstream in our neck of the woods here in the near future.


Phytochemical Constituents


If you are familiar with Kratom, then you should be more than familiar with Mitragynine. What about your familiarity with "speciofoline" though? It's one of many beneficial phytochemicals found in Mitragyna speciosa. Specifoline is a constituent in the herb that most people don't know about. It's one of many that most people don't know about though. Kratom contains the following ( that we know about ): Mitragynine (Antinociceptive, antidepressant), Paynanthine (Smooth muscle relaxer), speciogynine (Smooth muscle relaxer), 7- Hydroxymitragynine (Antidiarrheal, analgesic), Speciociliatine, Speciofoline, Mitraphylline(also found in alternative mitragyna strains such as javanica and hirsuta), Ajmalicine(Sedative), Corynanthedine, Mitraversine, Rhynchophylline, and Stipulatine.


Medical Potential


So we know there has been an enormous amount of scientific research on Mitragyna speciosa and its medicinal chemicals and their properties. Why did the DEA tell everyone that it has no medical benefits then, and where were there citations? Seeing as how the villagers in these countries would use it to prevent some chronic diseases such hypertension, diabetes, herpes, cancer and HIV[1], I find it only reasonable for our own countries medical system to simply allow its use, and distribution freely, assuming its sold ethically and tested for purity and cleanliness.
