There is nothing like having the emotional support of your loved ones and the assurance that what you are doing is right for you and your family. Kratom is about having confidence and assertiveness in yourself. Kratom is about trusting mother earth. That is why learning and teaching are so vital for true understanding. Learning about kratom requires rewiring the brain and natural neuroplasticity.

Be honest, learn, and create together. The path of kratom is unique to each individual, but know that it is a magical family project worthy of your investment. There are no shortcuts to learning. There are no shortcuts to the kratom ritualistic nature. Learn the facts. Kratom is an indigenous botanical that grows in the wild jungles and deep forests of South East Asia, particularly in places like Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Malaysia, and Thailand. Unfortunately, for political reasons our society is so disconnected and detached from nature that for centuries we have been taught to fear and to reject mother earth’s natural creations. Know deep down in your heart that when you are purchasing kratom, you are purchasing an integral botanical that belongs to the same family as the coffee (Rubiaceae). In fact, Mitragyna speciosa is socially and culturally considered/perceived as “the coffee” of South East Asia.
The bloody war on Mitragyna speciosa is real. There has been and continues to be vicious attacks on American kratom families across the nation. The evidence is visible in the soulless articles that are constantly being released with the purpose to misinform, misdirect people, confuse, gaslight, besmirch, pollute, and disgrace the image of these indigenous trees. Becoming kratom literate requires time and effort. Kratom is a teaching sacred botanical that needs to be approached with utter respect and humility. The greatest thing you can do for yourself and your family and your friends is to investigate the origins and the history of this botanical and where it currently stands in America. Please know in your heart that when you are purchasing kratom, you are purchasing a raw botanical that is federally legal in AMERICA apart from certain states and local laws. Kratom has been treated as a botanical that is banned/illegal BUT IT IS NOT and therein lies the MAJOR PROBLEM.

The planet needs you.
The kratom shame is sadly visible all over Reddit, Facebook Groups, and testimonials in social media from across the nation. People feeling preoccupied, fearful, and ashamed because they don’t want their significant others to know that they are purchasing kratom is indeed a sensitive topic across the internet that deserves to be talked about and explore. You are reading this article because you know deep down in your gut, in your intuition, that there is something sinister lurking behind the kratom industry. The image of kratom is so tarnished and stigmatized that people find it hard to perceive kratom as a natural wild botanical rich in life-giving alkaloids. “My girlfriend/boyfriend cannot know that I am buying kratom.” “My family cannot know that I am buying kratom.” “My husband cannot know that I am purchasing kratom.” “Where should I store my kratom?” “How should I store my kratom so nobody can find it?” “I don’t know who to talk about kratom?” Please know deep down in your heart that when you are purchasing this natural botanical, you are contributing to the sustainment of hard-working families dedicated to the agriculture of Mitragyna speciosa. The kratom industry continues to be a family-oriented industry on both ends of the spectrum from native farmers ethically harvesting raw kratom in South East Asia to moms, dads, brothers, sisters, cousins, grandmas, grandpas, friends, and neighbors living in the Americas and Europe. Please know deep down in your heart that when you are purchasing kratom, there is nothing to be ashamed of and/or afraid of. Our society should be the one mortified of itself for twisting and distorting the image of these wild trees.
Help save and define the present and the future of kratom. Help re-heal the identity of kratom. Learn the science of kratom and become as literate as possible. American holistic and conscious individuals are rapidly adopting kratom as part of their herbal folk collection. When you respect kratom, you are respecting your life, and your temple. Know in your heart that when you are purchasing kratom, you are buying an indigenous Indo-American botanical that is currently bought by five million Americans in the United States alone.
The entire system from paid ad advertising, social media channels, credit card companies, and payment processing companies treat kratom as a non-citizen. Yet, kratom is a LEGIT citizen of America and there is nothing to fear because pure raw kratom is a sacred botanical, a natural gift of nature for the people. The way Americans are finding out about kratom is mainly through word-of-mouth, email marketing, social media, The American Kratom Association (AKA), and videos/documentaries that are finally making it to the mainstream. The reality is that kratom has been and continues to be discriminated, defamed, disparaged, discredited, trivialized, and denigrated right in front of our eyes even though KRATOM is a FEDERALLY legal standing citizen of America. The disgusting discrimination against the citizenship and hospitality of kratom in America is real but know deep down in your heart that when you are purchasing kratom, you are purchasing ground leaf that our ancestors saw as holistic trees and mother earth ardently supports your journey.
Alas, we feel the need to warn you about the war on Kratom. Please contact your local Representative & Senator. Make sure you let them know you want them to fight for your right to be able to keep purchasing this natural botanical from South East Asia. May the cosmic vibrations be with you! Sending you a rainbow of love and light.
