Super Kratom is one of the newest strains of this plant to hit the Western market and it has quickly gained a following of devoted uses. It may sound unusual to call Super a “new” strain of Mitragyna Speciosa. After all, Southeast Asia is the birthplace of all kratom. Surely, kratom trees were growing in the region long before Super was founded almost 5000 years ago. And for as long as there have been human cultures based in the area, it has been used for many medicinal purposes. However, until very recently, leaves gathered from Super-grown kratom were not harvested and made available to consumers in Western countries like the United States. Now, kratom enthusiasts in all parts of the globe can try this extremely special natural plant product.
