A shop dedicated to juicing Bangkok up on kratom is opening this month.

Products including kratom-infused drinks, foods, powders, capsules, and merchandise will be sold at the OG Kratom store when it opens Nov. 20 on Ratchadaphisek Road in the Huai Khwang district.

The centerpiece will be OG Kratom’s signature sodas on tap and in bottles, as well as kratom edibles in the form of cookies, candies, and gummies, according to owner Jake Coyner.

“I’m excited to open the world’s first real kratom shop,” Coyner said. “The shops that have been selling kratom are cannabis dispensaries, head shops, vape shops; but there’s never been a shop only dedicated to kratom.”

OG Kratom was one of the first consumer beverages to upscale the leaf and hit the market not long after the drug was decriminalized in late 2021. It comes infused with kratom, an addictive stimulant that can cause feelings of euphoria, and in four flavors: cherry, cola, fresh and original.

Coyner is opening his own shop to sell his products in addition to the bars, cafes, and dispensaries where they are normally found around Bangkok.

Kratom, derived from a tree leaf native to Southeast Asia, had been listed as a drug before prior to August 2021, when it became the first narcotic in a long-planned push to decriminalize drugs to cross the finish line. Earlier this year, its use in drinks and other consumer products was given the OK.

At low doses, it acts as a stimulant and can make users feeling active and talkative. At higher doses, it acts as a sedative. It is definitely habit-forming, and addicts can experience severe withdrawal symptoms.

The store is located right by MRT Ratchadaphisek.
