NJ 101.5 Kratom News
Some people want to criminalize kratom and kratom users, but kratom legality in New Jersey is coming. Kratom Brands with the highest quality kratom will only be available for purchase in the Garden State. Purchase kratom from companies with great customer service and real customer reviews.
Well, it has been an interesting week in New Jersey regarding kratom news. The first post from April 24, 2023, that I read about kratom was concerning.
The first article had the headline: A new push in NJ to regulate an herb that can make you flip out. This piece was written by David Matthau.
Now, Someone who has used kratom powder since 2015 knows that this is far from the truth. Kratom is not close to an LSD trip. South Jersey Kratom is available at Christophers Organic Botanicals.
I cannot blame anyone who has never heard of kratom for being a bit on the harsh side when googling kratom. Google kratom and you will see some scary stuff. People want to be safe and do not want things around that cause issues. As a society we want to be and feel safe.
Is Kratom Safe?
Can there be dangerous products that are not tested or that have something added to them to cause someone to get high? Sure, but pure plain leaf kratom does not cause a high at all. Probably the reason so many companies had added substances to get a person high in the past. If kratom got people high, then why add something else?
Angela Conover, the director of opioid response and prevention with the Partnership for a Drug Free New Jersey, said buying kratom is risky cause you don’t really know what you’re getting.
This makes the perfect case for the KCPA or Kratom Consumer Protection Act. Regulations are to ensure buyers that the kratom product they are purchasing is real kratom and not mixed with other substances.
Ok, The second article by Dennis Malloy dated April 26, 2023 was titled NJ trying to regulate something that helps a lot of people (Opinion)
Now this article was a bit less dramatic about the effects of kratom, but nonetheless did have some questionable content. Now regulation is not a dreadful thing when it helps protect consumers. Regulation is not a ban, but a way to ensure that a product is safe.
One listener said they may be confusing Kratom with Krypton, which was a drug introduced in 2015 that did cause many problems.
This listener stated the following:
This article cannot be further from the truth about kratom. Kratom has given me a better quality of life.
I have been using Kratom since 2015. I was prescribed opiates from 8 years old until my late 20s. I am 48 now. I would love to have a meaningful discussion with you about pure Kratom.
Plain Leaf kratom is a great tool to help many people.
Kratom got a bad name in Sweden from the brand Krypton in 2011. The name Krypton was confused with the herb Kratom. Krypton was adulterated and had O-Desmethyltramadol which caused the overdoses.”
Another Listener stated the following:
I am a 69-year-old great-grandmother who has been responsibly consuming pure kratom powder for 7 years. I take very little each day and have never had any adverse effects from it.
We in the kratom community only purchase from vendors who use 3rd party lab testing against adulterants and contaminants, so we DO know what we are getting. Sensible regulation is the most humane step to take. Pass the Kratom Consumer Protection Act to help ensure safe products for people like me who count on it for an excellent quality of life. Please look at the science.”
We are making some headway with the second article, but there is a 3rd article to come.
The 3rd article Dated April 27, 2023 was written by David Matthau and stated that NJ trying to regulate this drug — which avid users say is better than coffee.
The truth about kratom
Now we are getting somewhere. This third article seems to get it right! The people of New Jersey should have access to a product that is not adulterated or synthesized, properly labeled with how many servings you should take in a day.”
According to Mac Haddow, a senior policy fellow at the American Kratom Association, even though natural kratom does not give a user a euphoric high, it should be regulated to protect users. He said regulating kratom will also ensure “that it’s going to be labeled properly, that it’s not going to have synthesized alkaloids, which is one way to boost the effects of kratom, that it’s going to have an age limitation on it.”
Most people have never heard of kratom, including reporters. I always talk to anyone I encounter about kratom. People google kratom and see all the negative reports and stories. These negative reports are truly hurting people who are looking for a better quality of life.
I hope we can come to a point where we talk about kratom the correct way. One day people will see how miraculous this plant is to humans. I would love to build relationships with the governing authorities, reporters, and anyone else in New Jersey and speak about kratom and how it has made an impact on my life.
Too many people hear negative things about kratom and just want to do the right thing. I understand and I would never give anything to my own mother I thought would be harmful. My 86-Year-old mother takes kratom as needed for mobility.
Kratom in New Jersey is going to be regulated at some point. At Christopher’s Organic Botanicals we have taken the necessary steps to follow the new upcoming state laws. We want you to feel confident when you buy kratom and know that you are receiving the best money can buy. We promise to always do our best for you!

This article stated that Up until last week, I had never heard of kratom, which is an herb grown in Southeast Asia. The different strains of which, depending on what you listen to, can be anything from a replacement for your morning coffee to something comparable to an LSD trip.
We have discussed that kratom is nowhere close to lsd or any other type of Schedule 1 narcotic. Sen. Jon Bramnick, R-Union, is sponsoring bill S3549 that would require kratom to be regulated, prohibit the sale of kratom to anyone under 21, and establish administrative penalties for any person who sells a kratom product without product registration.
The New Jersey Kratom Consumer Protection act will help stop fake kratom and adulterated kratom products from being sold. Sure, there will always be the few who want to do things the wrong way, but most kratom vendors want kratom regulated to ensure consumer protection.
