We Passed Our 4th AKA GMP Kratom Audit for 2022

by | May 6, 2022 | American Kratom Association


Christopher’s Organic Botanicals is proud to announce that we have successfully passed our 4th American Kratom Association GMP Audit.

We take Mitragyna Speciosa seriously and will always do our best for you! We make sure that the kratom is up to our standards before we add it to our website for purchase.

Quality Control, customer service and pure products should be the goal of all vendors. Providing lab tested speciosa capsules, Kratom extracts, and crushed leaf kratom should be the online businesses main objective.

We promise to always do our best for you, and we will not cut corners just to make money. We want top quality products and not the cheapest that you can find.

The American Kratom Association’s (AKA) GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) Audit program is a comprehensive initiative aimed at promoting and ensuring the highest quality standards and safety measures within the kratom industry. This program serves as a means to encourage kratom vendors to adhere to strict manufacturing standards and safety protocols, ultimately benefiting both the vendors and the consumers.

Participating in the AKA’s GMP Audit program involves vendors voluntarily subjecting their facilities, manufacturing processes, and product testing procedures to an independent third-party audit. This audit is conducted by qualified professionals who thoroughly assess every aspect of the vendor’s operations to ensure compliance with the established guidelines and regulations.

The audit process begins with a thorough examination of the vendor’s facilities. This includes inspecting the premises for cleanliness, proper storage conditions, and adherence to safety protocols. The auditors also evaluate the vendor’s equipment and machinery to ensure they are well-maintained and suitable for producing kratom products.

Next, the auditors closely examine the vendor’s manufacturing processes. They assess the vendor’s adherence to proper handling and processing techniques, ensuring that all steps are carried out in a hygienic and controlled environment. This includes evaluating the vendor’s sourcing practices, quality control measures, and record-keeping procedures to ensure transparency and traceability throughout the production process.

Furthermore, the auditors thoroughly review the vendor’s product testing procedures. This involves assessing the vendor’s laboratory facilities, equipment, and methodologies used for testing the quality, purity, and potency of their kratom products. The auditors verify that the vendor conducts regular and comprehensive testing to ensure that their products meet the highest safety and quality standards.

By participating in the AKA’s GMP Audit program, kratom vendors demonstrate their commitment to providing safe and reliable products to consumers. The program not only helps vendors identify areas for improvement but also provides them with valuable insights and recommendations to enhance their manufacturing processes and safety protocols.

For consumers, the AKA’s GMP Audit program serves as a trusted seal of approval, assuring them that the vendor has undergone a rigorous evaluation and adheres to the highest manufacturing standards. This gives consumers peace of mind knowing that the kratom products they purchase from participating vendors are safe, pure, and of the highest quality.

Overall, the AKA’s GMP Audit program plays a crucial role in promoting transparency, accountability, and consumer safety within the kratom industry. By encouraging vendors to adhere to strict manufacturing standards and safety protocols, the program helps foster a trustworthy and reputable marketplace for kratom products.

The objectives of the AKA GMP Audit program include:

  1. Quality Assurance: The program aims to ensure that kratom products are produced in facilities that adhere to high-quality manufacturing standards, reducing the risk of contamination or adulteration.
  2. Product Safety: By implementing GMP protocols, kratom vendors can enhance the safety and purity of their products, reducing the likelihood of harmful substances or contaminants in their products.
  3. Consumer Confidence: The AKA GMP Audit program provides consumers with a way to identify vendors that have demonstrated a commitment to safety and quality in their manufacturing processes.
  4. Regulatory Compliance: Adhering to GMP standards can also help vendors demonstrate compliance with regulatory requirements, even in regions where kratom is legal and regulated.

Participating vendors who pass the audit are granted the AKA GMP Qualified Vendor status, and they can display the AKA GMP Qualified Vendor logo on their products and websites. This distinction signals to consumers that the vendor’s products meet the AKA’s strict GMP guidelines.

Kratom Industry

The agricultural industry in Indonesia is currently undergoing significant changes. Our farmers and agricultural groups in the country have implemented Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) processes, which have led to an increase in the cost of raw materials. GMP is a set of guidelines and regulations that ensure the production of high-quality and safe agricultural products.

These GMP processes require our farmers to adhere to strict standards and procedures throughout the entire agricultural production cycle. This includes the use of quality seeds, proper soil management, responsible use of fertilizers and pesticides, and efficient irrigation techniques. Additionally, GMP also emphasizes the importance of maintaining proper hygiene and sanitation practices during harvesting, processing, and packaging.

Implementing GMP processes in agriculture comes with additional costs for our farmers. They need to invest in advanced farming equipment, such as modern irrigation systems, precision farming technologies, and pest control measures. Furthermore, they also need to allocate resources for regular training and education to ensure that they stay updated with the latest GMP guidelines and practices.

The higher cost of raw materials is a direct result of these GMP processes. Our farmers need to invest more in quality seeds and overall production to provide top quality kratom products.

Despite the increased costs, implementing GMP processes in agriculture has numerous benefits. It ensures the production of safe and high-quality agricultural products, which not only meet domestic demand but also comply with international standards for export. GMP also promotes sustainable farming practices, minimizing the negative impact on the environment and preserving natural resources for future generations.

In conclusion, the changing agricultural industry in Indonesia has led to the implementation of GMP processes by our farmers and agricultural groups. While these processes require a higher cost for raw materials, they bring about numerous advantages, including improved product quality, compliance with international standards, and sustainable farming practices.

Cheap kratom will not be coming out of Indonesia in a few years, which will make the entire marketplace much better. Paying a higher wage for kratom that has been handled properly and where farmers are paid correctly should not be an issue for anyone.

We are not talking huge price increases, but tariffs, taxes and higher production costs will add some cost to the end product. We should see pricing level out over the next few years and quality products will be more of a normal thing again.

Additionally, Any kratom company in a KCPA State will have to pay a registration fee for each product that they sell. This will cause GMP kratom to cost more, but you will have the peace of mind knowing that the kratom you purchase is top quality, clean and is sanitary.

Highest Quality Kratom

If we have a standard of what comes out of Indonesia or Thailand then we have a better product at the end of the day. We get what we pay for!

When it comes to kratom, the quality of the product is of utmost importance. We have to ask ourselves whether we want good, clean, and high-quality kratom or if we are willing to settle for subpar products that may or may not be 100% pure.

Choosing good, clean quality kratom ensures that we are getting a product that has been carefully cultivated, harvested, and processed. This means that the leaves used to make the kratom powder or extract are sourced from mature trees, grown in optimal conditions, and harvested at the right time to ensure maximum potency. The manufacturing process also involves thorough cleaning and quality control measures to remove any impurities or contaminants, resulting in a pure and safe product.

On the other hand, opting for junk kratom means taking a gamble on the quality and purity of the product. Junk kratom may be sourced from questionable suppliers who prioritize quantity over quality. This can lead to the use of immature or low-quality leaves, improper harvesting techniques, and inadequate processing methods. As a result, the final product may be diluted, less potent, or even contaminated with harmful substances.

Choosing good quality kratom not only ensures that we are getting the desired effects but also minimizes the risk of experiencing adverse reactions or health issues. High-quality kratom is more likely to provide the desired benefits, such as pain relief, relaxation, or increased energy, as it contains the optimal levels of active compounds. Additionally, clean and pure kratom reduces the risk of ingesting harmful substances, such as heavy metals, pesticides, or bacteria, which can be present in lower-quality products.

In conclusion, it is crucial to prioritize good, clean quality kratom over junk products that may or may not be 100% pure. By doing so, we can ensure that we are getting a safe and effective product that delivers the desired effects without compromising our health and well-being.

Let’s pay a few bucks more for kratom that is sustainable and clean shall we?

We use Mitragyna Speciosa daily and want to make sure that we have the best available products for our customers and ourselves. Kratom tea bags are on the way and crushed leaf has been added already.

We will make sure that our product line stays up with the fast-evolving industry. We have new products on the horizon including Full Spectrum Tinctures and chewable kratom tablets. We do not want to bring anything to our Product line that may or will cause issues for anyone.

GMP Kratom Extracts

I have tested all these extracts and tinctures myself. I wanted to see if using these kratom extracts would cause any tolerance issues for myself personally.

I know everybody is different with herbs, but my tolerance to most herbs is pretty high. I wanted to see for myself if 100 mgs of mitragynine would be an issue for tolerance?

I stopped using Mitragyna speciosa powder four times a day for about 3 weeks. I used the powder in the morning and at night only. During the day I used the extracts to see if these was a noticeable difference with tolerance.

The kratom extracts and the kratom tinctures were more of a powder enhancer and when used by itself and seemed to give the same effects as the powder without having to ingest too much powder.

My focus is on the go options that do not mess with tolerance. When utilized as an occasional option for a few times a week or even once a day I think that these new options will be a wonderful addition to our lineup.

American Kratom Association Summit

We were excited to meet in Dallas Texas for the American Kratom Association Summit.

We always enjoy listening and being involved with legislative issues and ensuring that the truth is being told.

The American Kratom Association has done an enourmous amount of work to get us where we are today. I cannot imagine Countless hours flying in and out of and waiting in airports for the next fight!

Just remember that the AKA is not a vendor organization. As vendors we will endure the same scrutiny if we are not doing things correctly.

The AKA is a consumer group and will turn in a kratom vendor into the FDA through the truth in labeling program in a heartbeat if they are not doing the right thing.

God Bless the American Kratom Association!

University of Florida Kratom Research

Christopher McCurdy’s talk about Mitragyna Speciosa was wonderful once again! I can listen to Him talk for hours about kratom science. Christopher McCurdy’s Ted talks in 2015 were one of the first videos I watched on YouTube.

The University of Florida is growing kratom trees and studying the alkaloids to have a better understanding of this plant that we love. It is great to see kratom science being discussed instead of being thrown under the rug.

We learned that Mitragyna Speciosa trees from Southeast Asia are being grown at the University of Florida have three different chemotypes. Christopher McCurdy is doing amazing research at the University of Florida, and I am proud to support this research with monthly contributions.

An Incredibly low Mitragynine producing chemotype, A medium Mitragynine producing chemotype and a high Mitragynine producing chemotype. These trees were randomly chosen, and it seems that these three chemotypes are what is available in the wild too.

Much more research to be done. I love the science behind Mitragyna Speciosa and what makes it work. Check out the University of Florida’s Website about Kratom to learn about the Research that has been done so far.

Kratom Ban and Social Media

The American Kratom Association is working hard to overturn bans in Arkansas, Indiana, Vermont, Rhode Island and more.

Social Media in the United States has emerged as an incredibly powerful and influential platform that has revolutionized the way we communicate and share information. With the advent of various social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn, individuals, businesses, and organizations now have an unprecedented opportunity to tell their stories and connect with a vast audience.

One of the key advantages of social media is its ability to reach a wide range of people across different demographics and geographical locations. Unlike traditional forms of media such as television or print, social media allows for instant and widespread dissemination of information. This means that individuals and organizations can quickly and efficiently share their stories, ideas, and messages with millions of people, regardless of their location or background.

Moreover, social media provides a level playing field for individuals and organizations to showcase their unique perspectives and narratives. In the past, only established media outlets had the power to shape public opinion and control the narrative. However, with social media, anyone can become a content creator and share their own stories, experiences, and viewpoints. This democratization of storytelling has given a voice to marginalized communities, grassroots movements, and individuals who were previously unheard.

Furthermore, social media allows for real-time engagement and interaction with the audience. Through comments, likes, shares, and direct messages, individuals and organizations can receive immediate feedback, engage in conversations, and build meaningful relationships with their followers. This direct line of communication fosters a sense of community and connection, enabling storytellers to better understand their audience and tailor their messages accordingly.

Additionally, social media offers a range of tools and features that enhance storytelling. From visually appealing images and videos to engaging captions and hashtags, social media platforms provide various creative avenues to captivate and engage the audience. This multimedia approach to storytelling allows for a more immersive and impactful experience, enabling individuals and organizations to convey their stories in a compelling and memorable way.

In conclusion, social media has become an invaluable tool in the United States for individuals, businesses, and organizations to tell their stories. Its ability to reach a wide audience, democratize storytelling, facilitate real-time engagement, and offer creative storytelling features make it an essential platform for sharing narratives, ideas, and experiences. As social media continues to evolve and shape our society, it will undoubtedly remain a powerful tool for storytelling and communication.
