We must, as customers, vendors, advocates, researchers, patients, and those simply curious folks who are learning about kratom – we all must be very careful. We must watch what we say when we talk or post on social media about kratom.
How we describe or praise kratom will have a huge sociometric impact on the population. There is an overload of sinister, biased, prejudiced misinformation about kratom. Most of that is ultimately coming from Big Pharma and their puppets, the FDA and many in the orthodox, establishment medical services professions.
Sure, we love how kratom works in our lives. Nothing wrong with sharing our joy with others! But, even so, we still must exercise some caution and wisdom.
We love how, instead of being downtrodden dope fiends, we now have our physical and emotional issues taken care of. We now have a basically very low addiction potential substance that comes directly from nature. We rejoice in how we never have to increase our dose amount or how often we take kratom.
Oh my friends, there are so many wonderful changes in our lives, thanks to this member of the coffee family, the humble, somewhat bitter, but indeed powerful KRATOM ~!!! Look. I’m getting excited just writing about it!
Human nature is to buck against rules. Nobody likes to be told what to do. Most of us have common sense, do internet and library research, talk to those who are smarter and more experienced, and love to figure stuff out on our own.
But, having said that, there really are serious problems that are created by blabbering nonsense about kratom, or being too effusive, too enthusiastic, too radical in our rejoicing. By saying something stupid, false, or exaggerated about kratom, and doing so a lot to our friends, family, and random strangers online, we could accidentally threaten kratom’s legality.
If this sounds bizarre, hang in there. It will all make perfect sense, and this vital issue will be dealt with swiftly. Let’s get right to the point.
Kratom has enemies. Well funded, ferocious, fiendish foes. Big Pharma, FDA, DEA, other financial and legislative interests are opposed to kratom. They want it banned, unavailable, criminalized, wiped off the face of the earth.
Why such an extreme and harsh reaction to little old kratom?
Because kratom seriously threatens their profits and their agendas.
They are looking for any ridiculous excuse to make kratom look bad.
They are paying attention to what we all say on social media. They send out internet trolls, surveillance rats, tracking thugs, fact-checking frauds, and other agents to target anyone who speaks against their agenda, or in favor of alternatives to Big Pharma poisons.
So, we really do need to wise up and think carefully about what we say or post or write when the subject is kratom.
These are a few of the very reasonable restrictions to comply with when you are discussing kratom.
Here we go. This should shake up your thinking machine and open up some brilliant, new inner realizations, personality mechanism introspections, and self-awareness. While we wish to be relaxed, anxiety-free, and bold in our lives, we must be conscious of the bigger picture.
Here’s what we all must NEVER say about our beloved kratom, fantastic plant of Southeast Asia, botanical name: mitragyna speciosa. NEVER say any of the following:
“Kratom cured …. [fill in the blank]”
We must avoid making any assertions of medical benefits accruing from our use of kratom. We, as vendors, advertisers, advocates, users, researchers, and fans of kratom – we must NOT say that kratom is a remedy, treatment, or solution to any specific medical condition, illness, or mental trouble.
Making specific medical claims for kratom is actually illegal, unethical, and unprofessional for any kratom vendor, salesman, advocacy group, or ecommerce kratom website selling kratom products.
If you see anyone pushing kratom as a cure for Covid-19, flu, diabetes, depression, anxiety, insomnia, obesity, opioid dependencies, alcoholism, neurosis, psychosis, panic attacks, agoraphobia, suicidal thoughts, AIDS, arthritis, or any other medical condition – now you know they are sleazy.
AVOID THEM and seek out more professional, ethical, and truly beneficial herbal guides, naturopathic practitioners, alternative medicine providers, and dietary supplement businesses.
“Kratom is fun to take when partying. I’m working my way up to higher and higher doses. Once you get used to the bitterness, you’ll love to get high on kratom. It’s got a great euphoric buzz!”
A whole lot of WRONG is going on in the remarks above.
Kratom is a serious dietary supplement, but it has not yet technically been approved by the FDA for human consumption. So to take it for any reason at all is frowned upon by many organizations in league with Big Pharma. But when we start yakking about how it’s a terrific recreational drug, we are fighting AGAINST KRATOM.
Hopefully, you’re way past this issue, but for those who have not thought much about it yet, there is an extremely important point here. Not trying to rain on anyone’s parade. Not trying to be a killjoy or a drag on your celebrations, which are likely justified and healthy to experience.
But what is horrible is to tell people that kratom is a “get high” party drug, similar to alcohol, Xanax, heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, ketamine, cannabis, or Adderall.
As the word spreads, incorrectly, that kratom is just another recreational drug that is taken purely for hedonistic thrills and reckless pleasure, lawmakers and judges and health officials persecute kratom more intensely, since these lies feed into their deceptive narrative and malicious agenda.
“Kratom is the same no matter where you get it. It’s all the same stuff.”
This is terribly mistaken. Unfortunately, there are unsavory, disreputable kratom vendors out there. What is being sold as “kratom”, often with exaggerated advertising and psychedelic graphics, can be of widely varying quality.
You want, not gas station or tobacco shop, kratom but the genuine article. “Kratom” sold at convenience stores, gas stations, discount cigarette shops, and hippie boutiques can be authentic, high quality kratom, but often it is not. In fact, it might be contaminated with other mood-altering drugs, mold, metal shavings, salmonella, sawdust, and other undesirable ingredients.
3rd party tested by an independent lab is what you want. Kratom that is pure, fresh, and high potency.
Kratom also differs, not just by vendor quality, but by vein color, strain, batch, lot, region of origin, growing season conditions, harvesting methods, drying and fermenting processes applied, and other factors. You may find that, for example, a White Elephant works better for you than a Chocolate Bentuangie, or you may be more responsive to Dark Green or Aceh Zen.
There may not be huge differences between kratom strains, but the differences are enough for most people to notice them and to favor one or a few strains over others.
Not all kratom products are created equal. Don’t misinform people by spreading this false idea that all kratom is the same. You’ll eventually find out how wrong that notion really is.
Avoid saying these 3 things about kratom, and you’ll be doing us all a favor. Truthful, helpful information must be used to combat the distortions and misrepresentations of kratom’s enemies.
