The difference between a regular strain of kratom and a plantation strain of kratom is where the kratom is grown. Kratom is naturally grown in the jungle. Due to increased demand for kratom, some production has been moved to farms to save the jungles from being destroyed. These farms use sustainable farming methods so that we can continue to provide kratom while keeping the natural jungles from being destroyed. The strains are the same, but we want to be transparent on where we source our kratom from.
