Sakae naa is used in China as a medicinal plant for colds, sore throats and to relieve pain.
Independent studies have confirmed its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties like common plantain or pot marigold.

Combretum quadrangularis is consumed as a medicinal plant in Thailand and Burma.
The farmers collect the leaves themselves then chew or smoke them, Sakae naa is used as a substitute for Mitragyna speciosa also called Kratom.
The effects are energizing and slightly sedative depending on the dose.

The most suitable period for sowing sakae naa seeds is from the end of May to the end of July because it requires warm temperatures night and day to guarantee optimal germination.

It is necessary to soak the seeds for 6 to 12 hours in lukewarm water before germinating them in order to break dormancy.
Then, take a tray or a large pot of horticultural soil with an acid Ph and plant the seeds with their tails upwards, 2 cm deep.
Pack well then gently water the crop.
Finally, place the plantation in a greenhouse at a temperature of 35 to 40°C.
