Kratom Association is comprised of individuals who are passionate about Mitragyna Speciosa; by people who have decided to do their part for the Kratom Community. We advocate the responsible usage, marketing and representation of Kratom in a collective effort to protect its legality in free countries, ensure its safety to its users and provide viable information about Kratom to the world.
'Those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.' - Thomas Jefferson
There is no doubt that in the course of Kratom's history, conjecture and paranoia have stirred the hearts of the Kratom Community due to the nature of the community's reliance on Kratom; times when a tiny spark of undue criticism or harmful attention have stood to tarnish the reputation of an ancient and sacred organism, and the community reacted with a torrent of undue emotion; in such times, even though the sustainability of Kratom's availability was under no direct threat, we all acted as though its time on the legal side of Earth's governing policies had come to a close.
These times are over.
The Watchdog program is started to eliminate any potential damage to the image of kratom and its users. Since there is still a lot of misunderstanding about kratom and its usage, the kratom association is concerned that incorrect forms of marketing and advertising will limit kratom acceptance.
A number of issues are in special focus;
The kratom association and its watchdogs will take action in the cases reported, in serious and potentially harmful situations we will work together with the proper authorities to protect our members interests.
The Kratom Assocation Watchdog Program is set up as a self regulatory effort to limit the amount of irresponsible seller actions and to deal with the huge amount of disinformation being published about kratom.
As long as kratom is being advertised as a legal high, sellers are targeting a young audience with slick packaging and irresponsible users post their video's on Youtube our herb will not be accepted in the public opinion for what it is. Join our watchdog program and help us to do some damage control!
Kratom Association's Certified Seller Program is designed to improve the overall quality and professionalism of kratom vendors and their marketing.
Kratom Associations Rules and Guidelines for kratom sellers give guidance to sellers and help them improve their accountability and responsibility. Once kratom vendors are approved by the KA's board, they will receive a certificate, showing their customers that they are a trusted and responsible source that provide quality products, service and marketing.
The kratom association will regularly publish relevant news and articles related to the market, the medical studies and new research findings.
There are numerous conflicting and incorrect reports about kratom usage and related issues like, addiction, abuse potential and health risks. It is in our interest to do research and publish relevant and correct information about kratom.
The kratom association does not advertise or promote kratom usage and will limit the exposure of their publications only to relevant groups.
The Kratom Association will regularly conduct research and will promote additional medical and pharmaceutical research, needed to build more understanding about kratom, its usage and the effects.
Although a lot of research has been carried out already, there is a strong need to collect more factual information about kratom's safet, limited addiction potential and medical applications.
