The Kratom tree scientifically known as [Mitragyna speciosa], is a tropical evergreen native to the region of southeast Asia, more specifically to the Island of Bali. There are three main strains of Kratom: red Kratom, white Kratom, and green Kratom. The different strains are classified by the color of veins that grow in the leaves. All of which have varying degrees of pain-relieving properties; that being said, each strain also has other different aspects and properties associated respectively. For instance, the red strain of Kratom has more of a sedative and relaxing effect, whereas the white strain is used for a stimulant and cognitive enhancer.

It is also very beneficial for fighting insomnia and relieving chronic pain. Consumer reports and studies have shown that the red strain of the Kratom leaves is sold and used two to three times more than either the white or green strains combined.
