What is Kratom?

Are you familiar with Kratom? Kratom (Mitragyna Speciosa) is a tropical evergreen tree native to Southeast Asia. The leaves of the Kratom tree have been used traditionally for centuries in Southeast Asia for physical and mental well-being as an herbal supplement in traditional medicines.

According to the American Kratom Association:

“Kratom is not a drug. Kratom is not an opiate. Kratom is not a synthetic substance.

Naturally occurring Kratom is a safe herbal supplement that behaves as a partial mu-opioid receptor agonist and is used for pain management, energy, even depression and anxiety that are common among Americans. Kratom contains no opiates, but it does bind to the same receptor sites in the brain. Chocolate, coffee, exercise, and even human breast milk hit these receptor sites in a similar fashion.”

According to a comprehensive analysis by Dr. Jack Henningfield Ph.D, kratom’s potential for abuse and dependence is no greater than such widely used and unscheduled substances as “nutmeg, hops, St John’s Wort, chamomile, guarana, and kola nut”.

How is kratom used?

The leaf from the Kratom tree is picked from the tree and then ground up into a fine powder. There are 3 main forms kratom is consumed in:

•       Powder – the ground powder is consumed via a method called Toss N Wash. The user pours a little liquid into their mouth, followed by the kratom, then more liquid that is swished around then swallowed. Highly effective, but not great for those that do not like the taste.

•       Liquid – the powder is made into a tea, mixed with a flavored beverage such as orange juice, or kratom manufacturers make flavored shots and drinks using kratom extract. These methods are also highly effective.

•       Capsules – probably the most common method in the USA. The kratom powder is encapsulated which removes the taste from the equation, however capsules tend not to be quite as effective as the previous methods.

How do I pick a reliable kratom vendor for purchasing kratom online?

There are many different Kratom vendors on the market selling kratom online and navigating the vendor landscape can prove to be quite difficult. If you are looking for a safe reliable vendor there are a few different questions you should be asking yourself before choosing one.

Is the kratom vendor transparent? Any vendor you choose should package their kratom using GMP practices and test their Kratom to not only ensure the product is of a high quality, but to make sure the product is safe to use for their customers. Most of the top reliable vendors will have their test results available for their customer to review.

Is the kratom vendor endorsed by the American Kratom Association? Vendors with this endorsement have been audited to prove they package their products using GMP practices and in accordance with the Kratom Consumer Protection Act. This ensures the products are authentic and safe for their customers, as well as supports the legality and availability of kratom in the USA for years to come.

Does the kratom vendor offer fair pricing? Some customers may be familiar with seeing inflated prices from some shops, gas stations, and other online kratom vendors. Typical pricing for high quality lab tested Kratom should run anywhere from $100 to $200 for 1000 grams or 1 kilogram of regular, plain leaf Kratom that has been GMP packaged and Lab Tested.

Does the kratom vendor offer any type of loyalty programs or rewards? Most Kratom customers will find and stick with one vendor that is reliable, consistent, and of high quality. Most top vendors will offer a rewards points program or affiliate programs to their loyal customers.

Is the kratom vendor well reviewed? Are those reviews transparent? Any kratom vendor that has been providing excellent kratom products and service to their customers will have kratom reviews on their website to show for it. Make sure those reviews are legitimate!
