Kratom is an evergreen plant. It belongs to the family of coffee. Kratom is excessively grown in the regions of South-East Asia. Kratom has a variety of different types.

In fact, the most powerful strain of Kratom (red Thai Kratom) is grown there. Isn’t it sounding funny that the region which is blessed with the growth of Kratom cannot use Kratom itself? Excluding Thailand, Australia and Myanmar are also banned by the government to use Kratom.
Just like Thailand, Malaysia is also very popular for the growth of Kratom. Unfortunately, the people of Malaysia cannot use this herb freely. It has been banned by the government in Malaysia as well.
Although, Kratom is a safe drug it can cause addiction and dependency. This is why the government has banned it to take care of the health of citizens especially the young generation. This is why it is restricted in most of the region even in the regions where it naturally grows.
