TL; DR: Don’t let the little, half-filled tincture bottle inside of the bag fool you; Shamanic Blends Full Spectrum Kratom Tincture (FST) is potently analgesic and mood-enhancing, and a little bit goes a very long way.

TL;DR: Bali Kratom is one of the more sedating strains of kratom at regular doses that’s still stimulating in lower amounts, but caution should be exercised with this effective strain.

Maeng Da Kratom is a well-known strain among kratom enthusiasts. As a kratom strain that originated in Thailand, it’s no wonder it took on the name Maeng Da. Maeng Da doesn’t just refer to a …
The group known as the Human Rights Foundation of Monland (HURFOM) has released a report regarding rampant drug use in the Mon community. Although the group and the report are well-intentioned, they sadly group kratom in with methamphetamine, a dangerous, addictive, and deadly synthetic drug that some mix with kratom.
Mon culture, particularly in Thailand, is marginalized. The result of endemic poverty, lack of education and opportunity, and a lack of respect for the rule of law combine, the increase in drug use is a sign of systemic problems in both Burma and Thailand. Unfortunately, the prohibition of kratom in Thailand only ensures that criminals and extremist groups have a cash crop to profit from while mixing it with much more dangerous drugs, like meth, DEET, or cough syrup.
My kratom houseplant just isn’t happy. It wasn’t getting quite enough sun, so I moved it over, closer to the window. Direct sunlight on kratam can cause the plant to freak out; it is a jungle plant, and it’s used to mottled light. Too much direct light to a kratom plant and you end up with leaves that look like the ones pictured to the left: covered in kratom leaf burns.
What’s a kratom gardener to do? For starters, resist that common urge to increase the amount of light the plant gets unless your plant starts really struggling. Moderate, dappled light appears to be the best option. My kratom plant obviously is going to need a little time to recover, following its insect adventures and recent cold-related leaf drop.
