Indonesia Flooding

I am happy to still be here talking about Kratom in NJ for the past 6 years. We started out on this endeavor to do our part to ensure that there were legitimate kratom vendors. We wanted to do our part and be one of small number of Vendors that evaluated and cared about the product that was being sold. We did the right thing in 2016 and we are still doing our part to ensure official speciosa products are being sold.

Indonesia has had major flooding concerns the past few months. Flooding in Indonesia is a huge concern for Mitragyna Speciosa production.

Indonesia has rainy seasons and a dry season, so during the rainy seasons it must be managed more carefully. the dry season is April to October, while the wet season is November to March.

During the rainy season, farmers face numerous challenges due to flooding. The excessive rainfall leads to waterlogging in the fields, making it difficult for farmers to carry out their agricultural activities. The flooded fields become inaccessible, hindering the planting and harvesting of crops. This not only affects the farmers’ livelihoods but also disrupts the overall food production in the region.

In addition to the difficulties faced by farmers, the processing of mitragyna Speciosa, a plant commonly used for medicinal purposes, becomes even more challenging during the rainy season. The excess moisture in the air and the constant dampness make it harder to dry and process the plant effectively. This can result in a decrease in the quality of the final product, affecting its market value and the income of those involved in its processing.

Furthermore, the impact of area flooding on agriculture goes beyond just the fields. Entire crops and areas can be destroyed by the force of the floodwaters. The powerful currents can uproot plants, wash away topsoil, and damage infrastructure such as irrigation systems and storage facilities. This not only leads to immediate losses for the farmers but also has long-term consequences for the productivity of the land.

Imagine the plight of those living in river areas that experience major flooding. Their homes and belongings are at risk of being swept away by the raging waters. The constant fear and uncertainty of losing everything they have worked for can take a toll on their mental and emotional well-being. Moreover, the aftermath of the floods brings additional challenges such as the need for extensive cleanup, repair, and rebuilding efforts.

Overall, the impact of flooding during the rainy season is devastating for farmers and communities relying on agriculture. It disrupts their livelihoods, affects the quality of agricultural products, and poses significant risks to their homes and well-being. Efforts to mitigate the effects of flooding, such as improved drainage systems, early warning systems, and disaster preparedness measures, are crucial to help farmers cope with these challenges and ensure their resilience in the face of such natural disasters.

We are donating $500.00 towards the humanitarian efforts in Indonesia and will always make sure that we take care of those that take care of us! This is what we mean by doing things differently. We care about Kratom and care about people. Especially the people whose lives depend on farming.

We are not by any means a large company, but we know who we should support. In our emerging industry quality kratom is a huge concern. Whether it be kratom extracts, powder, capsules, or the compounds in mitragyna speciosa we want you to be able to talk to us and we will answer your questions with the upmost integrity and honesty.


In order to actively contribute to the advancement of kratom research and ensure that it is being studied for the right reasons, we have made it a priority to allocate a portion of our monthly support towards the American Kratom Association (AKA).

The AKA is a prominent organization that advocates for the responsible use of kratom and works tirelessly to protect the rights of kratom consumers. By supporting the AKA, we are actively participating in their efforts to promote education, research, and legislative initiatives that aim to establish a fair and balanced understanding of kratom’s potential benefits.

Additionally, we have also chosen to extend our support to the University of Florida, a renowned academic institution that has shown a keen interest in studying kratom. By contributing to the University of Florida’s research endeavors, we are directly assisting in the scientific exploration of kratom’s properties, potential applications, and safety profile. This collaboration with esteemed researchers and scholars at the university allows us to contribute to the growing body of knowledge surrounding kratom, ensuring that it is studied in a rigorous and evidence-based manner.

Furthermore, we have identified several other organizations that share our commitment to promoting responsible kratom research. These organizations, which may vary from time to time, are carefully selected based on their dedication to conducting unbiased studies and their adherence to ethical research practices. By supporting these organizations, we are actively participating in a collective effort to ensure that kratom is studied with integrity, transparency, and a focus on safety.

In summary, our commitment to supporting the American Kratom Association, the University of Florida, and other reputable organizations is driven by our desire to contribute to the responsible exploration of kratom’s potential benefits. By investing in these initiatives, we aim to foster a comprehensive understanding of kratom, its potential applications, and its impact on individuals’ well-being. Through these efforts, we hope to contribute to the ongoing dialogue surrounding kratom, ultimately benefiting both kratom consumers and the wider scientific community.

We also make contributions to St. Judes Research Hospital, as this holds a deep personal significance for us.

These organizations are doing what is necessary for the future of Kratom and humanity as a whole. We strongly believe that we should be supporting these people who are doing their best to study it for the right reasons.

Science Behind Kratom

Our commitment to being on the front lines of kratom science means that we will actively engage in research and stay updated on the latest developments in the field. We understand the importance of staying informed about the scientific advancements related to kratom, as it is crucial for making informed decisions and providing accurate information to the public.

By being at the forefront of kratom science, we aim to contribute to the growing body of knowledge surrounding this natural substance. This involves conducting our own research studies, collaborating with other scientists and researchers, and staying connected with academic institutions and organizations dedicated to mitragyna speciosa research.

Through our efforts, we strive to uncover the potential benefits and risks associated with kratom use. This includes investigating its chemical composition, pharmacological properties, and potential therapeutic applications. By delving into the science behind kratom, we hope to shed light on its mechanisms of action and understand how it interacts with the human body.

Furthermore, our dedication to staying up to date on kratom science extends beyond our own research endeavors. We actively monitor and analyze the latest scientific literature, attending conferences and seminars, and engaging in discussions with experts in the field. This allows us to stay informed about the most recent findings, breakthroughs, and controversies surrounding kratom.

By disseminating accurate and up-to-date information, we aim to educate the public, healthcare professionals, policymakers, and other stakeholders about the science behind kratom.

New laws are continuing to be passed to support legality.

Most people I bump into and talk to about kratom have no idea what kratom is to begin with. This a perfect time to tell your story and explain how kratom has helped you. Just like all the comments listed on the World Health organization’s website.

World Health Organization

A policy commentary on the WHO pre-review of kratom

The World Health Organization will not require a Critical Review of Kratom! The A.K.A.’s Website will have the most up to date information on it and the American Kratom Association will be able to answer questions about kratom that we cannot by law answer. Kratom Science is still emerging, but preliminary results are showing what a lot of use knew all along.

A significant percentage comments on the World Health Organizations website stated that kratom has helped them and kratom saved them in many ways. A plant that is bad could not help people, right? Well, that is the conundrum now.

Please remember that when you shop with us you are supporting future of mitragyna speciosa research!

We were notified that the KSP Approves Research Collaboration to Develop Kratom with the United States Association: Becoming an Export Commodity Beneficial for Health. This is huge and will be the first steps towards the future of mitragyna speciosa in Indonesia.

VOI and other news outlests are reporting similar news. We will keep you posted!

Jakarta News

JAKARTA – The Indonesian government through the Office of the Presidential Staff (KSP) highly appreciates the offer of cooperation to develop kratom as an export commodity herbal plant that is beneficial for health. This cooperation offer was initiated by the American-Indonesian Chamber of Commerce, the American Kratom Association (AKA) members of the united states of america and the Anugerah Bumi Hijau Producers Cooperative (KOPRABUH).

Kratom itself is a tropical plant that is commonly found in Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia. This herbal plant also grows a lot in Kalimantan, especially in the West Kalimantan region.

It was reported in Jakarta that the people of West Kalimantan began cultivating plants capable of growing in this swamp area since 2010. Currently, the area of ​​land in West Kalimantan is 11,384 hectares with spread over 23 sub-districts and 282 villages. As many as 200,000 families in West Kalimantan Province are very dependent on the kratom industry.

Indonesia itself still does not have regulations on the trade and governance. Even so, it is one of the export commodities that is quite large and has the potential to bring economic benefits to the country. It is recorded that until July 2021, the number of exports to the United States alone has reached 400 tons.

“Both parties agree that it can lift the economic growth of both countries. Therefore, we agreed to make kratom an export commodity. It is very possible to do this because in Permendag No. 18 of 2021, mitragyna speciosa does not include goods that are prohibited from exporting,” said the Presidential Chief of Staff, Dr. Moeldoko in a meeting with representatives from the United States, at the Bina Graha Building, Jakarta, Monday 8 August.

Even so, Moeldoko does not deny that there are still differences of opinion about kratom mainly because the National Narcotics Agency (BNN) still categorizes it as an addictive substance.

“There needs to be joint research between US and Indonesian educational institutions. The reason is the US, especially Johns Hopkins University, has been doing research on mitragyna speciosa for a long time. We hope that this research collaboration will be useful for the world,” added Moeldoko.

Meanwhile, also attending the meeting was Senator Curt Bramble from the state of Utah.

“Kratom is a safe natural product, but the challenge is that kratom is often contaminated with E. Coli bacteria, Salmonella and heavy metals. So I hope from this meeting, we will get the same understanding about it. Furthermore, I hope there will be regulations to ensure the safety of kratom that will be exported to the United States,” said Curt Bramble. (Calvin G.
