Kratom age and potency?
    #9512550 - 12/29/08 04:14 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I have read that in general, kratom trees need to be several years old before reaching potency. Therefore, I was wondering whether anyone here has noted acceptable potency from plants only a couple years old etc?

ive heard 5 years until it's at the right potency to harvest

ive yet to hear from anyone who has an older kratom plant and has successfully harvested and used the leaves with good results, so id like to hear from such people as well.

SO you are saying that they LOOSE potency after 5 years? I am not sure I am following you here as I thought the older the tree, the more potent (given acceptable stressors to the plant etc.).

I've always read that, but I had cuttings that gave effects from chewing a leaf or two.  It wasn't the same type of full on feeling as tea, but considering it was onyl a leaf or two I thought it was impressive.  It was always the stimulant effect that was noted.  But I am odd in the sense that I can feel soemthign from a single sip of good tea, while also being able to drink quite a bit.

no 5 years till its potent enough to sell the leaves probably, so old enough to eat your own plant too
