The active drug ingredients of kratom, known as alkaloids, are derived from the tree’s leaves, which are dark green in color and can grow more than 8 inches long and 4 inches wide. Kratom leaves have an ovate-acuminate shape with opposite growth patterns.
The leaves are also elliptic with a heart-shaped base including 2 to 4 centimeter long petioles. The tree’s flowers are round and yellow, growing in clusters at the end of branches.
There are over 40 currently known alkaloid compounds found in Kratom leaves, including several alkaloids like the 7-hydroxymitragynine, which are considered the most active chemicals within the leaves.
Other active alkaloids include: mitragynine, mitraphylline, and mitragynine pseudo indoxyl. Other active chemicals found in Kratom include raubasine and corynanthidines which are both Yohimbe alkaloids. The amounts of each alkaloid largely depends on several factors like the tree’s location, strain and age.
Trees that are grown in Southeast Asian regions are more likely to contain higher amounts of mitragynine due to the specific climate conditions of the region. Kratom strains vary widely and many of the kratom leave’s effects depend upon the conditions under which they were cultivated.

Kratom experts strongly prohibit the use of Kratom in those dealing with heavy machinery and those who are driving. Getting caught driving while intoxicated on kratom could yield consequences similar to that of alcohol and drug intoxication when behind the wheel.

Those who burn several grams of kratom do so gradually, making a slow transition so as to avoid unpleasant and unwanted effects. It is also advisable to take notes on the intensity of Kratom effects every time an additional gram is added to your incense or tea.
At some point, Kratom users also reported that there are delaying factors for the Kratom’s effects to take place. Recent meals could be a delaying factor, thus, it is recommended allowing oneself to wait for at least an hour for the expected effects.
The ingestion of Kratom capsules could also play a significant role when it comes to the delayed effects considering the dissolution process of the vegetable cellulose capsule or gelatin. For this reason, users may want to stay away from capsules and stick with kratom powder taken straight from the kratom plant.
A person may burn 2 to 4 grams of regular Kratom powder and experience a mild aroma while 4 to 6 grams of the powder could result in more moderate effects.
Between 6 and 8 grams, the user could experience a robust aroma that may promote a restful evening.
