Growing in the green forests of Southeast Asia is a tree known as Mitragyna speciosa, from which we get a herbal substance called the kratom extract. These trees grow very tall, reaching 25 m, and produce long leaves, the primary source of kratom products. There are many kratom strains, and the red maeng da strain is widely recognized as the most potent. You can buy kratom from HappygoLeafy for the best quality.

It isn’t at all unlikely that the Chanel No 5 cologne that you spray on your body contains some of the same ingredients as your toilet bowl cleaner. Are you horrified? You will be by the time you’re about 20 minutes into Stink!

Pink Thing of the Day: Darvon

Say goodbye to Darvon, the once-popular painkiller. The FDA is pulling it from the market “because it can cause fatal heart rhythms.” RIP Darvon. You were never quite strong enough to overcome my tolerance, but at least you tried.
