Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) is an evergreen tree that can grow to a height of 25 m (82 ft) tall and the trunk may grow to a 0.9 m (3 ft) diameter. The trunk is generally straight and the outer bark is smooth and grey. The leaves are dark green and glossy, and can grow to over 14–20 cm (5.5–7.9 in) long and 7–12 cm (2.8–4.7 in) wide when fully open, are ovate-acuminate in shape, and opposite in growth pattern, with 12–17 pairs of veins. The flowers grow in clusters of three at the ends of the branches. The calyx-tube is 2 mm (0.079 in) long and has 5 lobes; the corolla-tube is 2.5–3 millimetres (0.098–0.118 in) long.
Mitragyna Speciosa is indigenous to Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, and Papua New Guinea.
I really aim to review Unique Novelty, here. I buy this product every 2 weeks, and so far, these folks have been *prompt* with their shipping. I mean I pay nothing for shipping and the damn package is here 2 days later, consistently. It's like Amazon Prime! (I was sketched out at first by the payment method, but I took a small risk in the beginning and I'm glad I did. I'm now paying less than 36% of what I was paying for the same product in 1 oz packages, locally. *36% OF*–NOT 36% OFF or LESS!!! Unreal savings if you buy this on the regular! To be clear, I was getting single ounces of the same product for $16 each plus tax, but with Unique Novelty, I'm paying $5.75/oz straight up! Regarding this particular product–Remarkable Herbs Vietnam–this is the only strain I take, and have taken, for 2 years. The others make me feel funny or bad. It does the following for me: 1. relieves chronic lower back pain (very effectively–this aint some "Ehh, yeah I'm pretty sure it's doing something." 2. improves energy and focus 3. improves sociability and mood 4. regulates digestion–ya know... it makes me poop more often/regularly 5. I HAVE BEEN SICK ONCE IN THE PAST 2 YEARS. I used to get sick 2 or 3 times/year–just little colds or sore throat, but still! ***6. It is *a little* habit forming. But the benefits FAR outweigh the costs thus far. No question. And when I've taken a little break in the past, the only "withdrawal" symptoms were a little gasiness, and a stronger emotions for about 4 days. Where hydrocodone (vicodin) or other pain pills makes me ill and feel like total garbage physically and emotionally the next day, this product DOES NOT. You may feel some gasiness or nausea as it's taking effect, but it should subside fairly quickly if you take a reasonable amount.
Perfect get up and go. I have 5 bulging disc in my lumbar region and this kratom is the perfect mixture of pain killer and energy. Would highly reccomend for anyone with body pain.
