Bare with me on this one folks, but I’m suspicious of why there would be any unacceptable heavy metals in Kratom lab tests ...

My thought/suspicion is that some of the grinders being used to powder Kratom before being imported might be made of material not suitable for products to ingest..
for example: if the metal part of the grinder happens to be made of metals not proper for food grade products..nickel, lead ... and what have you , and the grinding over and over in the powdering process could leave metal particles that inevitably and directly end up in the Kratom powder.. then Ofcourse the Kratom will be positive for metals

I’m just trying to understand why there would be high metal levels in any Kratom batch.. ever... , and got me thinking about the whole procedure from harvest to , drying to grinding to our herbal cupboard...

Any thoughts or ideas about this ? Makes even more sense to only purchase and support vendors that go the extra mile to ensure that every step is safe and compatible for healthy processing and consumption.

This is my attempt to understand that it’s not the Kratom off the tree that is tainted, but the processing of it that could lead to unfit ingestion from some sources .. not all sources !!

Any vendors or farmers or Kratom scholars that can add to this theory ?? It’s not a far stretch at all but I’d like to stomp out all possible reasons for the government to blacklist a herb that helps people to no end , helps me with pain, anxiety and depression...

aside from the FDA demonizing Kratom for fear of profit loss to their pharma buddies... if this could be proved it’s one less angle for them and their fear mongering because it can be remedied very easily

I’ve never been so active for any cause , including herb
( marijuana ) which has been a dear friend and ally for most of my life..( aside from the past 8month break)

However with Kratom I’ve called senators, signed petitions and urged everyone I know who takes Kratom to do their part in keeping this amazing leaf legal and accessible

We all need to support/ encourage all Kratom growers and suppliers to make sure every step of production is safe ,

Another thought is that metals sink in water, kratom practically grows in water which would be easy to ascertain that the tree Carries some of this through the respiration cycle, but even that I don’t think would bring the levels to unfit levels for consumption

Let’s not forget that we need minerals .. our soils have been depleted from taking to much out of the soil and not putting more back in, sustainable farming practices helps with this ...

and perhaps it’s all just blown way out of context so the people doubt and side with the government in outlawing the one herb that has helped balance my life and increase the quality of it ....and hundreds of thousands like me !!

Thanks for reading my thoughts and hope it’s seen for what it is , my attempt to deduce the lies and point to a easy remedy to fix this ,

Look forward to reading any and all thoughts about this :)

In watching farmers online, aside from your topic of heavy metals, the farmers have been able to RESTORE SOIL damage done from previous farming they did with palm trees for palm oil. They are MORE THAN THRILLED to be working to sustain the environment while working in the kratom farming communities.

Just a thumbs up on the environmental reasons to stop this “dangerous” plant from being consumed in the US.
Go Monsanto! <—-eff dee yay

I understand that it’s very much a environmentally restorative tree to grow , environmentaly and economically! The rubber and palm trees beat the land and the workers something pretty bad , growing Kratom is sustainable in all the ways that count. From my understanding The foot print isn’t a negative one, it’s a beneficial one , similar to growing hemp in so many ways I’d imagine ... probably even better than hemp

My post wasn’t to bash any farmers or vendors but to just put out a thought of “ what if this is happening during the grinding process..?” “And is this why there are some reports from the government nazis saying the levels of heavy metal are high ..?”

I know that plenty of foods have traces of this or of that metal/ mineral , I wouldn’t be surprised that if spinach was a threat to pharma that it would all of a sudden be reading unsafe levels of metal in tests ... :(

Anyhow, im not concerned about natural levels that are in the leaf itself , but was wondering about the material used in grinding and if that’s the case then it could be remedied and the FDA wouldn’t have any ground to stand on with it.

And Ofcourse for health reasons that are obvious , no one wants any added ingredient ( except for maybe higher alkaloids for some folks ) that would be a issue for the consumers..

Crazy bout Monsanto and their cousin fda ... the audacity of these people :evil:

Monsanto is worse than a drug cartel. Lets see.., their early days made "agent orange" used throughout the Vietnam war. Horrific stuff. Proudly made GMO's, forced people to buy their seeds and use Round Up. Went after and ruined many small farmers. I'll stop there because its just sickening what a company can do with their money through campaign donations (white collar pay to play) and all their lobbyists. Bayer is buying them for 60 + billion dollars. Good move on Monsanto considering more and more cancer claims coming out from using Round Up.
Meanwhile the great people at the FDA keep putting out at least one or two warnings a week for the last 2 months it seems. about food, fruit, and even dog food recalls due to contamination. (in general not linked to Monsanto)
Ugh, now i need a dose of kratom to get back in a positive mood. truly sad stuff the way things run in this country. And they go after helpful and harmless kratom.

Yeah jayisk... crazy stuff going down

I’ve done plenty of research/reading about Monsanto and the food cycle .. the book “seeds of deception “ ( a book about gmos Industry )was depressing.. yet very informative of intent in food industry

I was a organic farmer for a little bit.. 3 years( food crops!!)
And knowing the hard work earthy work involved compared to the selling of poison.. Monsanto... couldn’t paint a more clearer picture of how “ real “ (good ) food is produced and how executives get rich off of selling/creating Frankin food, creating a off balance in the natural cycle, getting a nation sick , domestic and over seas !!! it’s beyond my comprehension how this could even be allowed... money!!

“Fast Food Nation” another depressing but whistle blowing account of the food industry... profit driven nazis .. the American way!!

It’s all about the money, forget about what’s right and proper or good for the people ...

Same difference with Kratom and the Fda , it’s sustainable, economically viable for the farmers, restores depleted eviromemts, and a treasure trove of botanical benefits ... (any other similar plants come to mind..hmm .. cannabis ??) and gets plowed over by a profit threatened government/ industry of poison selling SOB’s...

This part of the post might be considered good for the venting section of the forum , but what the hey,

It’s all so obvious , and so, so violating to us what goes down in this country pertaining to food and medicine ..and our right to access information and life giving foods/ medicines ..


How many fast food joints( chock full of GMOs) line any given city block? To many !! How many Pharmacy’s... ?

a lot !!!

Crazy how much threat (an already Corruptly rich group
( FDA/ pharmaceutical bunch ) will go to keep their way of life .. depriving those with free will the right to choose what they put into their bodies (L) hard not to feel like we are still in the dark ages ... but let there be light .. que..Kratom

Long story short , extreme hypocrisy at it’s ugliest

There , rant done

Let’s keep positive despite the obvious and keep our rights to choose life giving versus life taking

Sorry about the negative tone, just crazy the stuff that goes down in the name of capitalism!!

Ok . I’m done

Good night
