Kratom 2019: A Look-Back
Mitragyna Speciosa, better-known as Kratom is an herb that natively grows in the tropical countries of some Southeast Asian and African countries. Today, Kratom is a household name, but it was never the same as before. For several centuries, Kratom was a well-preserved secret in Southeast Asian countries like Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and so on. Over time, for the sake of economic and commercial growth of these countries, the natives began to export it to distant lands. Thus, the world came to know what Kratom is. Though Kratom is a famous herb, people are still not well-aware of it. Hence, we decided to dedicate this week’s post to help you learn Kratom better.
Kratom products that we see today are prepared from the leaves of kratom plants. Depending on the location of the trees and the color of the leaf veins, Kratom is categorized into several variants or strains. Earlier, people only knew about Bali kratom that grows in Borneo island. Back then, people used to standardize Bali as Kratom. Presently, we are discovering several more strains like Thai Kratom, Hulu Kratom, Indo Kratom, and so on.
Kratom Powder and Capsules: The Making
At first, a team of professionals vigilantly handpicks the good kratom leaves strain-wise. These leaves are then brought in the factory where they are checked for rotten leaves or stems. Then, they are thoroughly washed with lukewarm water. After this, they are spread over large trays and put into the dryer where they are dried until they turn crisp and brown. Then, the leaves are powdered in a large grinder. Finally, the dust is carefully sieved several times to remove a big chunk of leaves before packing it in a fixed quantity. The dust prepared is nothing but the pure kratom powder.
Vendors make kratom capsules with this kratom powder only. The powder is sealed in vegetarian capsules. Generally, each kratom capsule contains 500 mg of kratom powder. These capsules are then counted and packed in fixed numbers.
