Harvested from a large tree in the Rubiaceae family, native of and indigenous to Southeast Asia. Kratom is botanically related to Corynanthe, Cinchona and Uncaria genera with similar biochemistry. From the same family as coffee and the psychoactive plant Psychotria viridis. Other species in the Mitragyna genus are used medicinally in Africa, and also for their wood.
Fresh Kratom leaves are commonly chewed, often continuously, by workers and manual laborers seeking it's pleasant tingling numbing and stimulating effect. Kratom contains many alkaloids including mitragynine mitraphylline, and 7-hydroxymitragynine (which is most likely to be the primary active chemical in the plant). Although 7-hydroxymitraygynie and mitragynine are structurally related to yohimbine and other tryptamines, their pharmacology is quite different, acting primarily as mu-opioid receptor agonists. Other active chemicals in kratom include raubasine (known from Rauwolfia serpentina) and some yohimbe alkaloids, corynantheidine. With Kratoms paradoxical property having both stimulant and relacsing effects.
