Hulu Kapuas Kratom is harvested in the deep jungles of West Kalimantan in the Hulu Forest grown on the banks of the Kapuas River next to the Malaysian border.
This is a very rare and unique strain of kratom harvested only from mature trees. The province of West Kalimantan is home to 4.25 million people and has a number of large rivers, the largest being the Kapuas. The Kapuas drains from the spectacular inland wetland of Lake Santarum within the region known as the Heart of Borneo. Kalimantan is the Indonesian part of the island of Borneo, the third largest island in the world.
Most of the provinces, the interior especially, is very sparsely populated and the rain forests are some of the most bio-diverse in the world. Kalimantan has a tropical climate with average temperatures between 23 and 31 degrees Celcius. The annual precipitation is high around 300mm per year with a light rainy season between March and May. The rainy season gets more intense between November and January. The levels of precipitation are considerably lower than other parts of Indonesia.
Kratom is not approved for internal use by the FDA, and is sold for external use only.
