I am trying to write a comprehensive paper on Kratom and would like to know if anyone has info on when it first became commercially available in the U S. seems like I first saw it @ 10-12 years ago but I have only had experiences with it over the last 5 years.

Yes I've wondered this also. I first ordered in 2008 and there were already several established sites. If I'm not mistaken the erowid vault was started in 1999 but the longest I've heard was somebody said they ordered was 2001.

I was into psychoactive herbs for a while in the late 1990s and had seen kratom available from online stores that sold such things. However reports about it were so inconsistent that I never tried it until I rediscovered it last year. The Vaults of Erowid, while less relevant today, have some information that can help fill in the history of kratom. They also have the infamous "dark cheek" and "afraid of rain" study that I suspect the FDA is still looking at to justify the recent customs seizure orders.

Wow 30 years ! That's amazing. Wouldn't that be evidence for the FDA if this guy has proof that he has been selling it that long. I hope he does *fingers crossed*
