For centuries, kratom was used throughout Southeast Asian countries like Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia. It was traditionally used to help with pain and energy by those doing strenuous labor. Kratom was used as a local anesthetic to help with coughs and with intestinal issues like diarrhea. People would chew on kratom leaves and spit out the leaf after a few moments. Another popular way to enjoy kratom is to brew some leaves in hot water to make a kratom herbal tea.
