Combretum Quadrangulare, also known as Sakae Naa, is a relatively small Southeast Asian tree belonging to the Combretaceae family. Sakae Naa is native to several countries, including Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, the island of Sumatra, and Thailand. It has long been used for its energizing and mild sedative effects, similar to caffeine in the former case and without its addictive effects. It is also the foremost alternative to Kratom, although its effects are milder and less long-lasting.
History of Sakae Naa
Combretum Quadrangulare, more commonly known as Sakae Naa, is a tree growing in the wetlands and jungles of Southeast Asia. At its height it reaches not more than 10 meters, making it a relatively small tree. A distinctive feature of this tree is that all of its parts, including its wood, roots, seeds, and leaves, can be used for, and have pharmaceutical properties.
For hundreds of years, Sakae Naa has been traditionally used by the indigenous populations for a good number of uses. The laborers pluck the leaves directly off the tree and chew them whilst being fresh to best enjoy the energizing effects, helping them through their long days of manual work.
Sakae Naa may have been used for a long time by the indigenous peoples of its native habitats, but it was only since Thailand banned the use of Kratom in 1943, that Sakae Naa established itself as the foremost alternative to the former as Kratom users across Thailand switched from using Kratom leaves to using the leaves of the Sakae Naa tree. It has only recently started making its way out of the Southeast-Asian region in search of new horizons.
Even though Sakae Naa is gaining ground in favor of Kratom, its effects aren’t at all comparable, to say the least. It may have similarities in appearance, aroma, and taste, but whereas Kratom is also used for relaxation, mood enhancement, and relief from physical discomfort, Sakae Naa is mostly used for its energizing properties as those are its most potent effects. Furthermore, Sakae Naa doesn’t have as long-lasting effects as Kratom, which in turn makes it a much better choice as a pick-me-up.
