Very High Quality Plantation (maeng da) Kratom!
Information on Kratom:
Kratom is botanically called- Mitragyna speciosa. It is a tree indigenous to Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. In Thailand, Kratom is mostly grown in the central and southern regions of the country, and very rarely in the north. The Mitragyna genus, part of the family Rubiaceae (coffee family), is found in tropical and sub-tropical regions of Asia and Africa. Botanically and chemically, Kratom is closely related to Yohimbe.
- Over 25 alkaloids have been isolated from this marvelous plant. The most abundant alkaloids consist of three indoles and two oxindoles. The three indoles are mitragynine, paynanthine, and speciogynine - the first two of which appear to be unique to this species. The two oxindoles are mitraphylline and speciofoline. Other alkaloids present include other indoles, and oxindoles such as ajmalicine, corynanthedine, mitraversine, rhychophylline, and stipulatine.
- The alkaloid content of the leaves of Mitragyna speciosa is about 0.5%, about half of which is mitragynine. An average leaf weighs about 1.7 grams fresh or 0.43 grams dried. Twenty leaves contain approximately 17mg of mitragynine.
- All leaves appear to contain mitragynine, speciogynine, paynanthine, and small quantities of speciociliatine. Oxindole alkaloids usually occur only in small or trace amounts.
- Alkaloid content varies from place to place and at different times of the year. Within each location, there is a quantitative variation in alkaloid content from month to month. While indole content seems to be fairly stable, oxindole content shows tremendous variation.
- Asian Mitragynas are often found in rainforests, while the African species (which are sometimes still classed in a separate genus, Hallea) are often found in swamps.
- Mitragynine is the dominant alkaloid in the plant. It was first isolated in 1907 by D. Hooper, a process repeated in 1921 by E. Field who gave the alkaloid its name. Its structure was first fully determined in 1964 by D. Zacharias, R. Rosenstein and E. Jeffrey. It is structurally related to both the yohimbe alkaloids and voacangine.
