BRIEF HISTORY OF KRATOM

Kratom’s history begins like many medicinal plants. Indigenous peoples sought to relieve their ailments and pain by using plants. After experimenting for years, decades, or even perhaps centuries, the medicinal properties of plants would be discovered, and this knowledge would be passed on from generation to generation. In fact, the development of modern pharmaceuticals follows in this same light with trial and error, either with trials with volunteers or with preliminary trials on animals, such as rats and mice.

The history of kratom follows this same pattern. Kratom grows native in Thailand and other parts of Southeast Asia. It has been used by the people for a vast array of ailments for centuries, including as a stimulant, pain relief, help with diarrhea and cough, and to help with opioid withdrawal. It was used in many ceremonial events, customs, and traditions. From treating diseases to being used as a stress reliever and to achieving altered states of awareness, kratom was exclusive to Southeast Asia until the Dutch began to settle in Thailand in the 1800s. In fact, it was first mentioned by a Dutchman in literature who worked for the Dutch East India Company, the famous early spice trading company. It began to be used as a more affordable alternative to opium. Many Southeast Asians chew kratom to help with pain relief, or they brew it in tea when they are looking to relax.

During this time, kratom’s healing properties were discovered, but it still took another one hundred years before kratom would make its way to the Western World. While kratom is illegal in many countries to grow and possess, it remains largely legal in the United States, excepting a few states that have outlawed it. Kratom is even illegal in Thailand and Malaysia; however, it remains in popular use with the supply coming mainly from Indonesia.

In the early 20th century, kratom finally began to be analyzed by scientists. The psychoactive strains were identified in 1921. The plant was identified as being good for diarrhea relief and stomach issues in 1903. While indigeous people already knew this, it was analyzed by the West now.

So why is kratom limited and/or outlawed, especially in places such as Thailand? Like all drugs that offer an opiate effect, politics plays a role. The fact of the matter is that kratom is extremely affordable when compared to other types of drugs, and some governments want to be able to tax the other drugs. But if kratom is available, these governments will lose out on this revenue.
