No matter how much you know about Kratom, there will always be doubts about several aspects of Kratom. This is why it is important for the average Kratom consumer to stay on course with the facts pertaining to the growth and the complications of Kratom at all times and instances. It is also better to stay alert and gather enough information on the current Kratom events in your area and also on the Kratom activities at the federal level. But you might ask how much information you will have to know to stay updated all the time. To put it in simple terms, it is important that you know about the Kratom plant at least in a small way so that you can share the information with a person who is new to Kratom. Also, you can create awareness on Kratom with the information on hand. Also, given the fact that Kratom is surrounded with controversies and complications, you might even be brought in front of the court or a federal representative, where you will have to defend Kratom or educate those people on Kratom and its approach.
Apart from these above-mentioned reasons, Kaybotanicals believes that every Kratom user needs to know at least little about the plant they consume for the betterment of the whole Kratom community. To put it in a short way, we have picked 9 important questions about Kratom and Kratom powder for which you should have the answers.
Question 1 – What is Kratom powder?
Every Kratom user consumed Kratom in the form of powder and it is important to know what Kratom powder is. Kratom is a tree from the Southeast Asian countries that usually thrives in tropical climates. The Kratom plant is closely related to the coffee plant as they both originate from the same family tree. Also, Kratom is harvested in countries like Malaysia, Indonesia, Borneo, Sumatra, and Thailand, where huge plantations are present in these regions. The farmers handpick the best Kratom leaves and then they are sent to the manufacturing units where they are processed, crushed and powdered into Kratom powder.
Question 2 – Is Kratom legal in my State?
The legal status of Kratom keeps fluctuating every now and then. But the American Kratom Association makes sure that people are made aware of the status of Kratom on the ground level and the federal level if any changes have been made on the same. Hence, it is very essential that you check if Kratom is legal for use in your state before you set out for the purchase of Kratom. Kaybotanicals do not ship Kratom products to any of the States where the plant herb has been banned. You can find the list of States on our site, where Kratom is not legal for purchase.
Question 3 – What is Kratom tolerance?
Have you ever heard of the word tolerance? If you are a Kratom user, then this word must not be new to you. If you haven’t really heard of this word or experienced the effect of tolerance, then it is something you will have to give your attention to as a Kratom user. Tolerance is usually developed when you use a particular Kratom strain for a long time without swapping it with other strains. In these cases, the user is forced to use more amount of the Kratom strain with time for even experiencing the initial effects. In other words, the user has developed a dependency towards the Kratom strain forcing them to consume larger quantities with time.
Tolerance is something that every user must look to avoid or prevent. To avoid tolerance, you will have to switch between different Kratom strains on a periodic basis. Kay Botanicals always guides its users to rotate their Kratom strains even in small quantities for the betterment of the customers. If you wish to enjoy the benefits of Kratom without any issues, then you will have to switch between different strains without any choice.
Question 4 – Is the shelf life of Kratom long?
Yes, Kratom indeed has a long shelf life but it is important to understand how to store Kratom. If you have Kratom in bulk quantities, make sure you store the products in a cool dry place. By following this method, your Kratom can stay fresh and even last for a longer period of time. Some people also store their Kratom in Ziploc bags and air-tight jars. It is up to you to decide which one of these storage methods are best suited for you.
Question 5 – What are the potential Kratom strains out there?
Finding the best Kratom strain can create a huge debate in the Kratom community since the Kratom effects depend on the individual, purpose and other factors. Every individual might find a particular strain to be potent and highly rewarding. Hence, no one can really say that a particular Kratom strain would be better for a person since every user has to get on the trial and error method to find the best strain that suits them.
However, some of the recommendations we have from our side are
Question 6 – Is lab testing important for Kratom?
Make sure that you do not purchase Kratom from an online vendor who does not initiate any third party lab tests on their products. At Kay Botanicals, we are proud to announce that we test all our Kratom products through third-party labs in order to safeguard the safety of the consumers. We even pushed Kratom products into the bin just because it didn’t pass the tests. And it even costs more than a thousand dollars. But we are committed to delivering safe Kratom products that ensure the security of our customers.

Question 7 – What use does the stem and vein of Kratom account for?
Stem and vein of Kratom are not very popular Kratom products that most people in the Kratom community long for. Kratom is derived only from the leaves of the plant and it is made up of certain alkaloid components with a unique alkaloid makeover. Similarly, the stem and veins of Kratom also have unique alkaloid makeup, which is completely different from the ones present in the Kratom leaves. The stem and vein of Kratom are indeed important since they have a unique alkaloid makeover in them. The structure of stem and leaves make them hard to digest and hence they stay in the body for a long period of time than the Kratom leaf. Some users also tend to mix stem and vein of Kratom with the leaves for regulating the tolerance levels.
Question 8 – Why do people worry about Kratom?
A particular advisory states that Kratom shows similar effects as that of narcotics and opioids due to which they also carry the risk of abuse and addiction. However, there is no scientific proof to substantiate this claim. But we agree to an extent that passing medical claims with Kratom are indeed a wrong thing to do. But most vendors and sellers make medical claims about Kratom and it is a crime under the law since these claims have not been approved.
Question 9 – What do I do to keep Kratom legal?
