Kratom: Benefits and Different Forms in which it is available
What is kratom
Kratom is a tree leaf that comes from a tree native to South East Asia. The scientific name of this tree is mitragyna speciosa. Natives have used the leaf for medicinal and recreational purposes for centuries. Its popularity has vastly increased in the last couple of years in the Western world, primarily over the Internet and through word of mouth. It is purported to have many benefits, an opinion that is being held by an ever-increasing population.
There are several alkaloids in kratom, a number of which affect the Delta and Mu opiate receptors. This is why consuming kratom has effects similar to those caused by opiates.

Forms in which kratom is available
Kratom is available in a variety of forms. The most common form is kratom leaves. These leaves are crushed into a powdery form, boiled in water and then consumed as tea. Given below are some of the other common forms in which kratom is available.
Kratom in its powder form is typically more potent than crushed leaves. This is because only the leaf is used to make the powder. Veins and stem are usually removed. The leaf is the part of the plant that contains the highest concentration of active alkaloids.
Stem and Vein
Veins and stems are separated from the leaf when powder is being made, owing to a lesser concentration of active alkaloids. However there are some active alkaloids in these, even though the concentration is as low as 25%.
Kratom Capsules / Kratom Pills
Kratom capsules / pills are usually just powdered kratom put into a capsule, which allows for a delivery system that is more convenient.
The name is usually given to a mixture that contains powder of the normal potency along with an added extract. Apart from that there are stronger Kratom variants that are also referred to as enhanced kratom.
Crushed Leaf Kratom
Crushed Leaf Kratom, as the title suggests, is the entire leaf of the plant inclusive of stem and veins. It is usually used to create kratom tea which serves as a delivery system.
The extract is usually available in the form of a powder and is a very concentrated version of kratom. Given the high concentration, the effect is significantly more enhanced.
In this form, the alkaloids are extracted from the kratom plant and dissolved in an alcohol solution, thus allowing for alternate channel of delivery. Droplets of the tincture can be consumed sublingually to create a potent effect.
