African Ethnobotanicals

African herbal remedies are amongst the oldest on the planet as native cultures have harnessed the power of plants and herbs for millennia. In fact, African tribes have used plants in a range of different ways since well before recorded history. This has led to the discovery of many potent African botanicals. While kratom is not amongst them — kratom (mitragyna speciosa) is actually native to Asia! — African cultures have discovered a variety of plants like kratom including the wide-spread blue lotus flower, native Akuamma seeds, and kanna.
