Swim has been unable to find any details of the ingredients other than the claim that it contains '100% Natural Herbs'
He has read reports that it is (or contains) Kratom. It is produced by a Canadian company and Swim is unsure if it is for sale anywhere other than online.

I work in a Canadian head shop. We carry Vicozen along with MaengDa tea and different extracts in herb and capsule form. We have a supply of various other legal herbal highs. Most of them (incuding Vicozen) come from a company called Experience Alternatives.
Experience Alternatives™ is the premier manufacturer and distributor of superior Organic Herbal Blends and extracts in North America. As awareness of natural alternatives increases, we are fast becoming the world leader for brand name Organic Herbal Blends as well as Salvia and Kratom extracts.
Experience Alternatives™ is headed by a group of learned and dedicated professionals who constantly search the globe for exotic and effective plants that can be used for creating exotic and appealing blends. Our fully licensed laboratories have developed several 100% Organic Herbal Blends that are not only effective, but also safe and legal.
Vicozen was Swim's first Kratom try, so she found the 2oz to be more than sufficient to gain an effect.
Maybe Canadian Vicozen has different ingredients... Along with natural flavours and cane sugar Vicozen contains a "Proprietary Anti-Pain Blend-TM" which lists the ingredients as follows:
"Extracted and purified Passion flower, Lemon balm, Chamomille, Valerian, California Poppy
, Kratom, Gotu Cola, Ashwagandha"
I can see this product being used instead of a beer at the end of a long day (less calories, organic...)
I have spoken to many Kratom aficionados around town and generally, they do not like Vicozen because it does not produce as powerful an effect as their favourite herbal blends, probably due to their tolerance level.
Non-Kratom users are on both sides. Some like it, some do not. Though, because it is the least expensive legal high we carry so it tends to be more popular than the other kratom varieties among experimenters.
