Thai Supreme Kratom is hand-picked dark green leaves. This Kratom tree is indigenous to Thailand but is also found in other areas of Indonesia. Kratom plants prefer rich soil, and are sensitive to frost. Kratom is also known as Ketum, Kakuam, Ithang and Thom. The leafy tree grows from 3-15 meters tall.
The forest cover in Thailand declined from 61% to 34% of the country’s land area. Thailand lost close to 28% of all of its remaining forests over the last eleven years. Deforestation in Thailand is driven primarily by agricultural expansion.
Deforestation happened as a direct result of timber cutting. Climate change is already happening in Thailand, and the effects are devastating. Countries across the Pacific region are experiencing increased floods, droughts, storms, as well as landslides. The average temperature increase of .076 degrees Celcius and a 1-3mm rise in sea levels annually. Kratom grows best in the jungles of Southern Asia. Taking care of Thailands forests is necessary for both humanitarian and ecological reasons.
Kratom is not approved for internal use by the FDA, and is sold for external use only.
