Kratom is a tropical evergreen tree native to Southeast Asia, and its leaves have been used for centuries for their medicinal and recreational effects. Kratom contains alkaloids that can act as both stimulants and sedatives, depending on the dosage and strain consumed. In lower doses, kratom may provide a burst of energy and increased focus, while higher doses might induce relaxation and pain relief.

In addition to its potential stimulant and pain-relieving effects, kratom has also been associated with several potential health benefits. Some studies have suggested that kratom may have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-anxiety properties, and could potentially be used as a natural treatment for conditions such as depression, anxiety, and possibly chronic pain. Regardless of the potential benefits it should always be used responsibly and under the guidance of a healthcare professional.
