Summarized Description: Kratom -- is a leafy tree from the coffee family (Rubiaceae) native to tropical biomes in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, Myanmar, and Papua New Guinea. It tends to be 4-16 meters high, and its medicinal use extends thousands of years into antiquity -- primarily for use by manual laborers to fight fatigue and improve productivity, much as coca has been used for similar reasons over eons in western South America. Like coca, traditional use has involved chewing a few leaves, which are quite bitter. 1
Additional traditional uses involve mood-elevation, analgesic, aphrodisiac applications, socioreligioius ceremonies, and morphine dependence (Thailand). 2
Like many ethnobotanicals, Kratom can be abused, thus considerable attention has been focused on the narcotic effects which are produced when large amounts of the plant are consumed. 3 Kratom contains small amounts of psychoactive (mind-altering) opioid compounds, and so it has been banned in a number of countries, including Canada and Thailand. Currently, it is illegal in 6 of the 50 United States, including (in alphabetical order): Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, Tennessee, Vermont, and Wisconsin (as of May, 2016) 4.
Since Kratom comes in a varieties and different subspecies with varying properties, Alpha Omega Labs carries three distinct Kratom products -- all wildcrafted from Indonesia, all pure with no other ingredients or fillers. Please note that the properties below represent ethnobotanical uses by the indigenous and do not represent medical claims by AO Labs:
  • Green Maeng Da Kratom: This variety is known to improve mood-elevation and increase confidence. Our locals in Indonesia who microdose with Kratom religiously say it also "is a light energy booster that can perk you up without putting you on the edge." Helps one to focus, and is useful in pain management "without causing lethargy or drowsiness that other analgesics can cause."
  • Red Maeng Da Kratom: This is a variety of "red vein kratom," and is among the most common sold worldwide. Used to increase energy, relieve bone and muscle pain, and overcome symptoms related to addiction to narcotic opium taste. In fact, some of the strongest Kratom extracts used for poppy withdrawal come from this variety of Kratom.
  • White Maeng Da Kratom: "White" has subtle stimulant and sedative effect. Traditionally used to improves mental alertness, relieve chronic back pain and arthritis (osteo and rheumatoid), fight cancer, improve mood and feeling, morale, learning, and brain functions. This variety is best for those suffering from depression. If you find coffee too stimulating, you may experience anxiety or irritability when using this variety.


Uses & Protocols

Kratom is normally sold in capsules or bulk powder. We sell it in both. When it comes to "protocols," please keep in mind that we sell only pure powdered Kratom. We do not concentrate it into an extract, as that would be akin to making a pharmaceutical drug, plus it is in taking pharmaceutical extracts that side effects appear. Note that Kratom is very bitter, so if you take it in bulk form -- (adding it to fruit in a blender is a common practice) -- be sure to add sufficient honey, maple syrup, stevia, monk fruit extract, or similar, natural sweetening agent to mask the flavor. Additionally, we do not recommend taking Kratom just before bed time unless you are experienced in taking small doses so as to avoid insomnia.
For beginners: Take a half teaspoon (about 2.5 g.) to a teaspoon (about 5 g.) once a day. If you find your dosage causes irritation or agitation, then reduce accordingly.
Experienced users: Even for experienced users, we do not recommend taking more than two teaspoons (about 10 g.) per day. Again, the goal here is not to use Kratom as a narcotic.
Capsules: For those wanting smaller dosages and/or a way to circumvent taste issues, our encapsulated versions are recommended. The on-label dosage is a very low two capsules, 2x a day.
Microdosing: Those who microdose with Kratom will experience cumulative effects at roughly one-eighth to one-half teaspoon per day, depending on the person. You may need to experiment to find the ideal microdosing dosage for you because of variances in experiences between individual consumers and the desired effect you are looking for. Our Kratom supplier in Indonesia takes "one teaspoon every morning to add energy and focus on the job."

Contraindications
We do not recommend taking any Kratom product while simultaneously taking other analgesics or opioid products, to avoid any compounded additive or synergistic effects. Do not take if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. Avoid Kratom products if you have ever been diagnosed for psychosis, seizures, or intrahepatic cholestasis. Additionally, we do not recommend taking any Kratom product while using the Bob Beck device to avoid the amplifying effects of electroporosis. If you have any questions about these products, please write to us at: support@herbhealers.com.

Sourced from PubMed
Disclaimer: The following citations mention kratom, either as the focus of their study, or in passing. Of all the herbals that I have studied in the existing medical literature, this one was the least thoroughly covered combined with an insistence on including it tangentially so as to focus on potential abuse. Most studies were embarrassingly disingenuous on this count. Please note that no finding should be inferred to provide the basis of medicinal claims, nor should they be relied upon by the public, as such. Readers who want full access to the PubMed database are encouraged to register with NCBI.
As of Dec., 2017, there were 141 citations posted which mentioned Kratom -- the majority of them, just in passing. Below we list a few of the more notable:
