Christophers Kratom Story

My Kratom Story

My name is Christopher and I discovered Kratom in 2015. Below, I wanted to share a little bit about my backstory, along with the founding principles of our company. I want to help people and pets with natural products like Kratom. Please feel free to ask me any questions or share your own kratom story.

Kratom products from Southeast Asia contain alkaloids. Kratom alkaloids are what is responsible for the effects of kratom. Kratom is traditional herb in Southeast Asia.

The way I used to be

I was looking for other avenues in my struggle to maintain a functioning, less stressful lifestyle. Kratom is one of the plants that I wish I would have known about years ago.

A car hit me when I was 8, and that’s when my difficult life started. From ages 8 to 13, my knees dislocated around 40 times. I had surgery at 13 and again at 22.

My doctors prescribed me multiple medications for pain growing up. One such pain killer I remember taking as a teenager was Demerol tablets. I was in severe pain and have had a high tolerance to most drugs since an early age. I continued with strong pain management throughout my teens and twenties.

Being a child and not being able to participate in reindeer games is not enjoyable. I sat on the sidelines in gym most of my school years. I learned early that there are plenty of other things to do for fun besides physical activity.

I learned nutrition and how to write up diet plans and exercise schedules. Because I did not engage in the actual physical activity in school, I had to write about it.

I spent a few years being inactive after surgeries and gained about sixty pounds when I was 12-15 years old. This is when most of my surgeries and dislocations were the worst.

I began exercising at 16 after surgeries and had a break before the next surgery. I lost 60 pounds and learned how to use my own body weight to gain muscle and tone up a bit.

As many know, a car hit me while I was crossing the street in September 1983. I endured broken legs, back injuries, and a head injury. At 48 years old my body is in bad shape.

Kratom Heart

I had a heart attack at 36, which was 11 years ago. I had a helicopter ride to Cooper medical in Camden and flatlined on the flight. The TPA shot brought me back and cleared the blockage.

In 2019 one of my stents clogged up and I had a minor heart attack again. I went for my cardiac catheterization soon afterwards.

My heart doctor said my stent got blocked, but my heart made new vessels and let blood flow. I was in shock and asked him did my body just give me a bypass? He said yes, and my body beat him to it. The human body is amazing.

My Cardiologist trusts mitragyna Speciosa and we have had many conversations over the years about plant medicine. Plant Medicine is where we started as humans.

Squamous cell carcinoma

In 2017 I had a few health scares that got my attention. I received my first diagnosis of aggressive squamous cell carcinoma or skin cancer.

I had a cold and coughed a lot. I was waiting for my skin cancer surgery.

The surgery took a few months after my diagnosis. Over a period of 4 weeks, I broke 5 ribs from just coughing. Non traumatic rib fractures are what they called them, and it took a long time for my ribs to heal.

I had squamous cell carcinoma in 2018, which required a MOHS procedure on my left arm.

I was told that could have been from sun damage when I was younger. Hanging my arm out the window when I drove. I do not do that anymore.

I was diagnosed in September 2017 and had surgery January 2018. My ribs broke between October and November 2017.

It was not until I had the squamous cell surgery that my ribs started to really heal. I had one rib re brake after I sneezed. This was really painful and no one could figure out why it was happening.

In 2018 after my surgery, I went and spoke with another doctor that diagnosed me with osteopenia, or weak bones. Most probable cause was using opioids since childhood for pain management. I needed the pain relief as a child, but it came at a cost years later.

However, my life has improved dramatically since alcohol and pain killers are no longer part of it. I do not plan on ever taking anything unnatural, besides an occasional Aleve, unless it is necessary for surgery. I can finally maintain my ability to get out of bed and function daily, because of speciosa and cannabis. I will always do what I can to make sure that people know about these natural options.

Someone put plants here for a reason. It is up to us to find out what these plants do and how these plants work. Everything on earth has a purpose, so we should discover how to utilize our surroundings for a better life.

God was our Pharmacist before Big Pharma. I trust what God has provided on earth for us to use.

Christopher’s Organic Botanicals Company Vision

We built this company in 2015 on the foundation that everyone should have access to quality tested products. We’ve heard from customers and vendors about quality, pricing, and testing problems in the industry in recent years.

All I can say about pricing is that the price should reflect the necessary requirements to process and package these products. This includes testing, packaging, and general overhead. We will always do what we can to cut costs, but we will never cut corners.

We have been able to purchase a bit larger amount of kratom powder. By making a larger purchase we are able lower the cost a bit across the board. Air freight is always the biggest cost for kratom shipments. We strive to provide you with the highest quality speciosa at an affordable price.

Now, Kratom testing is nothing new, but the technology is expanding. We are currently testing five kratom alkaloids and have listed them on our Kratom testing results page. The product description lists all kratom testing results and makes them readily available.

The three new kratom alkaloids we are testing for are Paynantheine, Speciogynine, and Speciociliatine. These three kratom alkaloids have a lot of potential. We will update everyone as we learn more and test for different kratom alkaloids using new technology. We will continue to be on the front lines of the industry, making available anything new we learn along the way.

The highest Mitragynine content does not mean the best and strongest kratom. There are many variables to kratom and how kratom alkaloids work synergistically with each other.


We’re thrilled to share these scientific discoveries with you and we’ll constantly find new ways to learn more about Kratom.

The Kratom Industry is expanding! We promise to keep working towards the best options for our customers when it comes to standards and quality. We use this plant too, so we want to learn all we can as well!

Sometimes, people consider kratom consumers as part of the kratom counterculture, but kratom is increasingly becoming more mainstream over time. You’ll see kratom memes and other types of satire.

We are adding some new Kratom Extract products in 2023. Our water-soluble formulas, developed with our scientists, will be available soon. We’ve been working on them since the beginning of the year. We will also have established brands of kratom tinctures and Kratom Extracts available.

Find all your Kratom needs at Christopher’s Organic Botanicals, offering a wide range of Mitragyna Speciosa products. We supply high quality types of kratom leaves and extracts and high quality kratom that is lab tested at affordable prices. We sell bulk kratom to save on speciosa.

We give 10% of our sales each month to the American Kratom Association to support their work in keeping Kratom legal. With your support we are fighting to keep Kratom legal together! Rhode Island is looking good! United States in Next!


People have asked me if Kratom can solve their problems or issues? I will say that Kratom is a tool. Kratom can help us progress in life and move forward to the next stage. Therapy helps too!

God Bless the Kratom Community. We have taken steps to ensure this plant is accessible to everyone. We are Kratom Warriors and have never backed down!

I write the blogs on my website, unless I mention them as a guest post. I want to be able to share what I have learned about kratom in my own voice.
