Kratom - Mitragyna speciosa

Rifat Strain: Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) is a medicinal plant of the same family as the coffee tree. Although using Kratom has been common throughout its native range of Southeast Asia, this plant has remained virtually unknown outside of that area until recently. Its leaves contain mitragynine and are chewed as a stimulant in South-East Asia.

BumbleBee Strain: This strain was originally grown from seed of Vietnamese orgin, making it the only type of Kratom available from Vietnamese descent.

1172 Piper auritum -
Root Beer Plant

Root Beer Plant, False Kava-Kava. Close relative of Piper methysticum (Kava-Kava), and Piper nigrum (Black Pepper), this herb grows as a bush in the South Pacific. Large-leaved perennial, known for its leaves, which are used for their spicy aromatic scent and flavor, some liken to root beer, others to anise-clove. This species is easily identified by its huge leaves which can grow over a foot long in older specimens. The leaves are chopped and used for flavoring, as well as used whole, as wrappings for meats, tamales, etc. P. auritum is very often confused with Piper methysticum (Kava-Kava), and probably has some similar effects.
