What is Kratom?
Kratom is a tree native to the coffee family located in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand. Kratom has been used traditionally for thousands of years in Southeast Asia.
Learn more by visiting the National Institute on Drug Abuse website. The National Institute on Drug Abuse has officially launched a kratom study! This study is remote and can be done using your smartphone.
Best part is NIDA is providing up to $170.00 for participation. That is a good amount of money to put in your pocket.
Besides the financial benefit of this study, this is a fantastic opportunity to express how this plant has made enormous changes in our lives and make an impact on kratom science.
Mitragyna Speciosa is typically plucked from the tree and chewed or brewed as a tea. Leaves in the USA are used a bit differently since we ingest the dried leaves as a tea powder instead.
Traditionally, leaves were discarded after the active alkaloids were extracted from the leaves through the simmering process. There is not a right or wrong way to use kratom comparatively, but traditional use does not include ingesting the plant material as we do here in the United States.
Kratom capsules can be made at home by using kratom powder from Christopher’s Organic Botanicals. Empty Capsules and small capsule machines are inexpensive to make capsules at home. I purchase mine at Capsule Connection. They have been in business since 1973 and have great products and selection.
Most people have never heard of Mitragyna Speciosa and if they do hear about this wonderful plant from google it is usually negative. When people hear about effects of kratom for the first time there is usually a google reference to why it isn’t a good choice. We must research these plants ourselves to see if it is something that we should use.
We focus on fair trade kratom products and think that all products manufactured should be fair trade products. We need our world to be sustainable and make sure that we have resources for our future generations.

Everyone is different when it comes to herbs and how they react to natural plants. There are not that many one size fits all herbs in the world. We have a trial-and-error period to see what works best for our own individual chemistry. Educating ourselves on herbs and plants is the best way we can understand what herbs hold the most value and work best.
Mitragyna Speciosa is used in small quantities and most people use about two grams of dried kratom powder to start off. My mistake was not understanding the herb when I first started using kratom in 2015.
I used 5-7 grams the first time and I did get Nauseous. 5-7 grams was a bit too much for my body. When I reduced my intake to four grams my body agreed, and it worked fine.
Mitragyna Speciosa has different chemotypes or blends: Red kratom, White kratom and Green kratom. There is even Yellow kratom as well, but it is more of a red-white blend. Red is said to be more for nighttime.
White for daytime and Green for middle of the day. red Maeng da kratom may be more for daytime.
Everyone reacts differently, so these are just a rule to remember. White for Flight, Red for Bed and Green for in between. Kratom leaves do have red veins and white veins. Green Veins too.
Our names are not blends per se, but regions where the trees originated. We will have blends such as Christopher’s Mix and Holly’s Blend by the end of the year again.
Check out our 3 year old tree and take a look at the leaves for yourself! At 3 years old this tree has great alkaloid content. We focus on Fair trade practices that support economic stability in the supply chain.
We take Fair Trade Kratom very seriously and only source quality older tree kratom. Mitragyna Speciosa must be at least 2-3 years old to even have that strong bitter bite. The bitter the better!
We care about Kratom, and We care about You!
God Bless You and Thank You for being here with us!
