Kratom Association

A Breath of Fresh Air

 

                Last year an article was published on Forbes.com titled "Is Kratom the New "Bath Salts" or Just an Organic Pain Reliever with Euphoric Effects?". The article was written by contributing author David DiSalvo, who generally writes articles on science, technology and culture. The article was written after the long Bath Salts controversy, which we may all remember. His article did a good job at describing Kratom but the article had numerous factual errors such as the tried and true media myth that Kratom causes hallucinations and delusions. As we all know, this is totally false, but it has been reported in the media constantly and still is today. The article had numerous other factual errors, which is not surprising considering  Mr. DiSalvo was not familiar with kratom when he wrote this articleand he seemed to have done little research into the true effects.

The article was good id that it mentioned the Kratom Association and actually mentioned the fight to protect Kratom as well. This is unique because most news articles only quote the D.E.A. or addiction specialists who want to make everyone believe that Kratom is addictive just so they can get new patients.

Earlier this year Mr. DiSalvo wrote a follow up article titled "The Kratom Experiment" where he recgonized the massive amount of reponses that he received in the aftermath of his initial article and, like a good reporter, actually decided to find out what Kratom is truly about and how Kratom truly works. His initial article received nearly 50,000 views and over 80 comments and, in response to this outpouring of response, he wanted to nget to the bottom Kratom. Initially,  Mr. DiSalvo purchached a bottle of "Lucky Kratom" brand kratom capsules which, to say the least, got a huge amount of opposition due to Lucky Kratom's reputation among Kratom fans. Lucky Kratom is, in fact, blacklisted by the Kratom Association and numerous kratom supporters voiced their opposition to DiSalvo's use of this brand.

In the beginning of April, DiSalvo wrote a 3rd and follow up article which detailed his experience with Kratom. He decided to use Kratom and the article written described his experience with using Kratom and the effects he experienced. He published the article on his own perosnal website because he was approached by three different Kratom companies (Mayan Kratom, Nutmeg Kratom and Online Kratom) who all offered him free samples for his experiement. He felt that his accepting of these samples may have been a conflict of interest because Forbes pays him for articles. In any case, he used these samples and described his experience. He choose to drink the Kratom powder with orange juice in the morning and stuck to Bali, Maeng Da and Green Thai.

DiSalvo described his effects as overall positive, similar to coffee but without the jitters or the crash. He also described a mild calming effect that he experienced from Kratom and he experienced that the effects of Kratom where much more level and longer-lasting than coffee.

Now, for the side effects? Considering that, as the media wants us to believe; Kratom is more addictive than Heroin, causes hallucinations like L.S.D., works just like Cocaine and has more side effects than all of them combined...What side effects did Mr. DiSalvo experience?

Essentially none! (He did note that he had red eyes after using a specific extract fusion but in general he noted that there were no effects worth nothing.)

Really? No side effects worth nothing? How could this be? How is this possible? Hmmm. Maybe the news media are not being as honest as they claim to be.

In any case, DiSalvo noted that Kratom is a lot like good coffee, but with a longer lasting and even effect with a pleasent finish opposed to the crash one would get from coffee. He also noted that, after stopping kratom, the withdrawl was actually less severe than his withdrawl experiences from Coffee. The effects of stopping kratom were mild sluggishness which wore off in a day, opposed to stopping Kratom where he experienced "excruciating headaches" for days. Kratom "withdrawl", he says, is essentially non existant.

In conclusion, DiSalvo's article is a breath of fresh air amid the pure propaganda that we see on a weekly basis which bashes Kratom and lies about Kratom non-stop. DiSalvo concluded that he saw no reason why Kratom should be banned and also noted that if large amounts of coffee are legal to buy, which is stronger in effects than any Kratom, then why should Kratom be banned?


Indeed Mr. DiSalvo...Indeed!

Possible kratom ban ? No Way

There is some serious unrest in the kratom community. A Louisiana lawmaker, Senator, A.G. Crowe of district R-Pearl River, is proposing a kratom ban. On the WWLTV channel , see http://www.wwltv.com/news/northshore/Northshore-Lawmakers-Seeks-To-Ban-Herbal-Remedy-139325763.html , the senator explains his reasons. 

Poor knowledge and misunderstandings about the herb and the users are once more at the base of another crusade against a perfectly normal herb. Time for some public answers. The KA is preparing an open letter, which is included below and a petition is made available , please do sign the D0-not-ban-kratom petition and forward this to your friends.

The following letter is send to the Sentators office and will be published by press release in the comming days.

We are shocked to have learned of the proposal of Senator A.G. Crowe to pre-file a bill that would add Kratom to the list of controlled dangerous substances. This proposal seems to be based on some common misunderstandings which we would like to draw your attention to before this gets out of hand.
