Kratom Global Production and Export

Kratom plants, which are widely produced in Kalimantan, are large export commodities with the United States as the main consumer. But the lack of clinical trials makes many doubt the benefits.
The interior of Kalimantan is a source of global production and export of the kratom plant (Mitragyna speciose), a leaf that is hailed by some as a miracle drug to overcome everything from opioid addiction to anxiety disorders.
As part of the coffee family, kratom leaf has been consumed for centuries in Southeast Asia and Papua New Guinea thanks to its stimulating and pain relief effects. But now this plant is sold in powder form and exported worldwide. This worries some health regulators who are worried about the safety of the consumption of these plants.

Kratom stimulates the receptor part of the brain just like morphine, although kratom produces a much lighter effect there is also a kind of name Maeng da kratom as well as kratom.
The United States is the main importer of kratom. The authorities there have linked the consumption of kratom and its derivative products with dozens of deaths. This exacerbated the deadly opioid epidemic that gripped the country.
But for farmers in Kapuas Hulu, West Kalimantan – the center of kratom production – there is so much demand that they move from the profession of producing traditional commodities such as rubber and palm oil to kratom farmers. They began to plant kratom trees and turn them into commercial crops.

How about in Germany?
According to the European kratom information site, kratom is not currently under the German Narcotics Act (Betäubungsmittelgesetz), but under the Drug Act (Arzneimittelgesetz). This means, kratom should not be sold for human consumption, but only as a coloring product or incense. But if a person in Germany wants to order kratom products, then he has to make sure that he buys products from manufacturers who don’t sell kratom for consumption.
