Hey everyone. We were out of stock waaaaaay to long. Typically that wouldn't happen. But being that it was rainy season in Indo, we decided to offset our order. It is my job to bring you, me, and everyone else the best leaf possible. Either good leaf, or NO LEAF! We also have a new strain called WHITE DRAGON. Very very energizing. Definitely not my cup of tea but to each their own.

STRAINS IN STOCK

White MD
White Dragon
White Hulu
White Kali
White Indo

Green Md
Super Green
Green Bali
Green Malay (my favorite)

Red Bali
Red MD
Red Horn
(All our reds look green. Not red. We have bent for that)
Red Bent
Black Bali

We also have a very POTENT liquid extract. 45% Pure Mitragynine FSE. Two droppers was almost two much for me. I personally use it for emergencies.

We also serve Instant Kava and Kava Root. Very good quality. But as always,be mindful of reverse tolerance.

Due to us being out of stock for so long it's only right if we bring you all a sale. Use coupon code RAIN for 10% off your entire order. Good until the 27th midnight EST.

Please feel free to reach out with any questions. Enjoy your weekend and be safe!!

PS: We kicked ass in Maryland. The Senate felt touched by our testimonies and one of them said he would consider it for his arthritis. Going back next month to do it again.

You want $40 for an oz? ( "beginners" pack) How much do you pay your farmer, 50, 40 per kilo? 1, $2 / oz? Profiteering off sick people - despicable.

What are you talking about?????? The beginner pack is 3 oz of three different strains and is 23 dollars. Not bad

The sampler pack is a sample of every single strain we carry and is 46 dollars. That's over 240 grams in about 20 bags. You should really read the descriptions before you start throwing insults and attacking. Oh yea, we also have an assistance program for veterans and people with disabilities. Doesn't sound too despicable to me.

It's no disgrace to miss a decimal place, otherwise mistakenly draw the wrong conclusion, and then post in haste. As a general rule though it's best to not leap to ad hominem attacks.

In other words, a short "Woops, my bad, sorry" would basically put this in the rear view mirror. Given that you drew a conclusion so easily disproved I'm guessing that the error was honest, and the personal insult was based on a genuine concern for those who need Kratom.

I hope I'm right! :)

I suffer with severe mercury poisoning, and I typically don't post when I'm in really bad shape. It's why I've been utilizing Kratom continuously for the past 3 years. It's good you provide the discounts for the disabled, and I'm sorry I posted in such a state. My math was accurate, I meant to say $40 for the pack. Realistically, that extrapolates to $180+ per kilo. Your 3 oz pack ---> $270 / kilo. Your $90 / kilo is reasonable. I just paid $24 (with shipping) for 8oz from Gaia. I've bought from Indonesian farmers many times, and I don't believe vendors need to price gouge on smaller packs to maintain a reasonable profit margin / business model. Especially because it's medicine.

Welcome to ILK sunrunner!!

I’m so sorry to hear you have bad mercury poisoning... that must be really hard . May I ask how that happened ? I’d like to avoid that if possible ! One thing Ive learned is that cilantro, parsley and seaweed all pull heavy metals out of your body through a process called chelation.
Maybe consuming reg respectable amounts of those will help get that out of your system faster than not ! Please know that Otie’s and the other integrity filled vendors have a business to run that also happens to serve us in the best of ways , yes they get the product lower than they sale it .. but lots of factors go into why that is ..
testing , packaging , rent , employment ...

I understand your frustration but feel when looking at it from a diff angle, more easier to understand why vendors aren’t selling kilos for 30-40$....

Hope to see more of you here and please keep us posted and check in about your mercury poisoning , this is absolutely a wonderfully supportive community and we all want to help each other out B-) (L)

Take care my friend !

Cilantro, IIRC, triggers the pushing out of Mercury, and it even somewhat binds to it, so as to help it pass out of the body and not just get relocated in the body.

Smelling like dirt, while being dirt cheap, Selenium provides a good assist with that. Though I've read that taking in all the other minerals as part of a healthy diet is also a big help.

It's really inexpensive, it sometimes gets put on discount racks for as little as a buck. And I guess that being a mineral means that it might crumble in the jar as the powder binding it dries out, but it never goes bad.

Hmm, price went up a buck since I last ordered, but this was the best deal I could find when I last bought it.

That's actually a different seller than the one I used, with less reviews, but it's the exact same product.

Here's the listing for what I ordered, but it went up a couple of bucks in price. Amazon can be tricky to shop at sometimes. This link shows more reviews for the identical product.

I'm sorry to hear you are dealing with that. It must be hard. I've actually never heard of anyone dealing with that. I'm assuming it is a bit rare? And my pal sacred was right. So much more goes into it than just getting product and selling it. Besides all that he mentioned. A full panel of lab testing for each batch alone is thousands of dollars. If you compare OTIE'S prices to that of other companies who pays for things like that you will see our prices are cheaper. As if right now we are working on becoming GMP compliant. Very very expensive. And the question of the day is "raise our prices?" the answer is no. Because this in fact is a medicine and I can't do that to the people. So we will continue giving people a good, safe, and reliable product for a reasonable price where everyone can walk away happy. I'm happy we got to speak about this and I really hope you find some comfort from the condition you are in. And welcome to ILK this place rocks and everyone here is very kind.

im just finding this thread...

yes adam we appreciate all that you do. especially politically! I tried watching the session, kept freezing on my 2yr old POS laptop haha..

picking 5 strains for a split kilo for less than 90 is a great deal. and their stuff is amazing. now that ive gone through a full reset ill start with a half gram! lol

sunrunner

glad to have you here! you came to the right place to be able to talk openly. im sorry for you situation. im sure you have a game plan for you own health. babel is right about cilantro oil. other beneficial cleansing all purpose oils are lemon and oregano. even if you use a few drops with a cooking oil you still taste it. ill use them with meats, veg, rice, in my kratom juice, you name it!

I appreciate the positive input. Mercury toxicity is much more prevalent than advertised. "Silver" amalgam fillings are 50% mercury. Also contrary to popular belief, cilantro is the last substance a Hg toxic person should consume. A chelator needs to be taken on a half-life, and cilantro's half-life is indeterminable. Similar to that mentioned above, people who take cilantro as a chelator actually redeposit their Hg load to another tissue location, causing serious damage. After 12 years of doctors and shite to show for it, I unwittingly worsened my condition 10 fold by adding cilantro to my juicer regimen. (for 5 months) I've adhered to the Andy Cutler chelation (low dose, high frequency) intermittently for 2 years and I'm gradually improving. I hope this helps someone -
