The Mitragyna Speciosa tree grows in the Southeast Asian countries like Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia. The leaves of the tree, which are called kratom leaves, have some unique qualities to enhance the mood of the users by releasing them from anxiety and any pressure situation and keep the mind relaxed and allow them to sleep well. Kratom provides a number of benefits, but on the other hand, the effects of the kratom are like other drugs and its use tends to be increased as well. This has caused the authorities to reduce the use of the plant or even ban it.
Among 196 countries in the world, 4 countries, Australia, Malaysia, Thailand and Burma have banned kratom, while arguments are running in a few other countries on whether it should be banned or not. So, it can be said that kratom is still legal in most parts of the world.
Many countries, including Denmark, Germany, Finland, Romania, and New Zealand consider kratom to not be as dangerous as it is thought to be by its opponents. They say that it is a substance which can be controlled if used in a correct way, therefore, in these countries, kratom is legal. There are a few countries which are still unsure about the status of kratom. These countries include the United Kingdom,
Russia and South Korea, while Canada and Mexico and a few other countries have made it legal to purchase and import, but it is not allowed for human consumption.
