The Kratom Tree Farming Process

Although millions of people have tried Kratom as a natural supplement for various reasons, a lot of confusing information still swirls around this natural supplement. At Hudson Valley Botanicals (HVB), we don’t just sell premium Kratom without due diligence. We want to empower our customers with as much knowledge as possible.

Kratom comes from a tropical tree grown in Indonesia, Thailand, and other parts of Southwest Asia. Kratom, or the tree with Mitragyna speciosa as its botanical name, belongs to the coffee family. It has been used throughout its native region for many years. Typically, farmers and other workers prepared fresh or dried leaves into a tea that they could drink to support their energy levels.

Only in recent years has Kratom become popular in Western countries, so let’s explore our Garuda Kratom’s journey to your table, including how it is grown and processed as well as other need-to-know details.

How Kratom Is Processed

High quality Kratom starts with a high-quality source. HVB Garuda Kratom is proud to consist of small batch Kratom powder that can be used as a natural, unadulterated, lab-tested botanical supplement. Below, we will take a closer look at the farming process to gain a deeper understanding of the plant and how it goes from tropical trees into consumers’ hands.

The Basics of Growing Kratom

Kratom trees thrive in hot, humid, damp climates. These moisture-loving plants often grow in the shadow of taller trees and don’t require direct sunlight. The tropical climate and nutrient-dense soil in Indonesia make it an ideal location for this tropical evergreen to grow.

Kratom Harvesting

These trees grow 82 to 100 feet tall and have bright green leaves that growers can harvest at various times. The maturity of the plant at the time of harvest often impacts the vein colors, which include red, white, and green. The timing of the harvesting can also affect the alkaloids in the finished product, which is why different types of Kratom can have such unique properties. For example, the rich alkaloid profile of Green Hulu is often associated with increasing focus and feelings of calmness. Red Maeng Da Kratom, on the other hand, is often viewed as an herbal source for relaxation.

Kratom Processing

After Kratom leaves are plucked from the trees, our sources carefully wash them and ensure they are free of debris. At this point in the Kratom processing process, the leaves are placed on racks to dry. After the appropriate amount of drying time, the leaves are ground into a powder, meticulously packed, and shipped to the U.S.

Natural Tree Supplement

Kratom has been used in Southeast Asia for hundreds of years. One of its primary uses was to support manual laborers, including farmers and fishermen, with enhanced energy levels, endurance and stamina. Historically, it has been associated with support to relieve symptoms of fatigue, providing a plant-based option for natural energy levels.

Native Tree Uses

Like any supplement, the potential uses of Kratom are largely anecdotal. Supporters of Garuda Kratom report effects such as improved mood, increased focus and energy, relaxation, and calming properties.
