A research article was released in October of 2021 by Hotimah Salim from the Department of Biochemistry Medicine and Bimolecular Science (Universitas Nahdlatul Ulama Surabaya) in Indonesia. The data revealed some remarkable findings surrounding Mitragyna Speciosa, also known as Kratom. Indonesia is in the middle of thoroughly researching their native tree since the recent legalization in Thailand. It has sparked even more curiosity in that region, along with the realization that there is not much research out there.
