Organic Kratom! What to Look for in a Kratom Vendor Online?
Kratom (otherwise known by its botanical name, Mitragyna speciosa) is a herb of fast-growing popularity in the United States. The plant originated from Southeast Asia and has become a familiar ingredient among many natives in countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, and so on.
As mentioned, ORGANIC KRATOM is only just gaining popularity here in America. Hence, there are bound to be misconceptions and worse still, scams. The kratom sold here in America is usually raw leaves of the plant grown in its native Southeast Asia or processed into kratom powder and kratom capsules.
Whatever form of kratom to be purchased, it is important to determine the presence of certain factors. Quality kratom is not difficult to find. But there are many fake ones too. Here are some of the considerations you must make when purchasing kratom online?
Location of Cultivation
The cold climate over here in America does not support the growth of kratom. Kratom is usually cultivated deep in the forest in the temperate regions of Southeast Asian islands such as Bali, Borneo, and so on. The climate of this environment stimulates the production of the useful alkaloids in the plant.
Therefore, never trust kratom that was grown in the US. The best kratom vendors source their kratom directly from kratom farms in Southeast Asia. It particularly helps to form close-knit relationships with the local farmers over there as we do at Way More Naturals. Subsequent upon this, the kratom leaves are imported into the US for processing (into powder, capsules, whatever) and packaging.
There might be good intentions behind the use of pesticides and herbicides. But the fact remains that they are harmful to plants, particularly herbs such as kratom. And they are harmful to human health as well.
Therefore, farmers have devised different cultivation techniques (including indoor growing, where possible) to ensure natural, chemical-free growth. For your own safety, it is important to only use a kratom vendor whose kratom was grown completely organically.
It is not enough that kratom was grown organically. It must also be kept pure throughout from harvest to packaging. That means no addition of any substances or ingredients. Some kratom vendors may supplement their organic kratom with additional ingredients to produce certain effects.
Beware, though, that the reaction of kratom with other chemicals can produce negative effects and might even compromise your health. Therefore, it is in your own best interests that you ensure that you are purchasing 100% pure organic kratom. Even if anything would be added at all, you should be the one doing the addition (and better be careful when doing so).
Following the above conditions, the natural question must be ‘how do we determine that a vendor adheres to these?’ Of course, you cannot just take a vendor’s words at face value. Therefore, to prove that you are getting good quality and safe organic kratom, you must request a valid certificate of analysis.
A certificate of analysis is issued after the kratom must have been tested by a third-party laboratory. It must include details of all the chemicals present in the kratom and in what proportion. This helps you determine that the kratom does not contain harmful or unwanted substances. Note also that the COA must feature details of the third-party lab that conducted the test. And the lab must be an approved one too.
You are probably wondering ‘I just want to buy kratom; why must I have to keep up with all these conditions?’ All the points are important for your own safety! But it is understandable that the process of verifying a kratom vendor might take some time.
