In the world of natural stimulants, the Mitragyna speciosa is a relative newcomer to the Western market. With coffee beans and other herbs (commonly combined to create teas) dominating the social consciousness for years, newcomers to the scene have historically had an uphill battle to carve out a piece of the market. M. speciosa, known more commonly as kratom, has an advantage over other popular plant-based stimulants though, as it does not require a high level of processing to capture its stimulating effects. With the availability of kratom seeds, individuals interested in a steady, home-grown supply can even try their hand at cultivation. Germinating and successfully growing kratom seeds are not easy propositions though, as the tree is native to Southeast Asia and requires an ideal growing environment that is difficult to replicate.

Buying kratom is by and large the most common way that people obtain the stimulant in the west. Much of this has to do with the lack of regulation concerning the plant, as currently there are no prohibitions on it in place, or even simple limits regulating its sale. The internet is rife with kratom vendors peddling a wide array of products, varying in potency, plant varietal, and even the coarseness of grind for extracts.
Beware Fake Seeds
With the lack of regulation on the market, and the lack of domestic kratom seed suppliers in the U.S., individuals should be wary of vendors peddling fake seeds. The most common seed sold as kratom is Mitragyna parvifolia, which is another Southeast Asian plant that requires similar attention and care to cultivate but without any alkaloid-rich leaves as a reward at the end.
