Hello, this is Koda here, resident herbalist of the Kratom community, and the owner and lead alchemist who runs meridianbotanicals.com

For those who do not know me, I have been involved with ethnobotanicals for around 10 years, and been involved with the kratom community for about 6. I run a small apothecary with quite a selection of products, including 16 kratom strains, 150+ unique herbs, 75+ tinctures, and ~50 essential oils.

I was hoping I could vend here and help out the community with their various needs, as I have a very broad and precise knowledge of herbalism and health.

Thanks!

Hey MadMax, I do offer samples to new customers, especially to a new forum such as this! Just shoot me an email or PM and we can work something out.

I would also be happy to help answer any questions that I am legally allowed to answer. I cannot do medical advice, but I can certainly suggest what herbs, diets, and exercises can be done to elicit a certain state of mind (energized, calm, positive mood, social, euphoric, etc).

Thanks for the interest and warm welcome!

Hey Koda,

Welcome to the forum! Anyone with genuine Kratom knowledge is appreciated here at the forum. I'll gladly listen to anything you have to add to the conversation!

I shot you an e-mail about solicitation outside of the "Approved Vendors" and "Vendors Discounts/Promotions" tabs not being allowed, but I have decided to leave this post up since MadMax seemed to take a liking to you pretty quick. Talk soon!

Thanks ILOVEK!

I can certainly offer advice, just as long as I am not stepping on the FDAs toes. basically anything that has to do with a diagnosis, or a disease/disorder is off limits, but everything else is fair game. The FDA may control illnesses, but they do not yet control mood or emotions.

Picralima Ntida is an african seed that contains compounds structurally related to mitragynine I believe. These compounds are believed to have activity at the mu-opioid receptor site, meaning this seed or an extract of it could be very useful to medicine and herbalists alike as a new source of analgesic alkaloids.

I have not tried the seeds personally, but have read the user reports of a few individuals, and the seeds to seem to possess some activity, but are difficult to consume. Getting them in a powder form, if authentic, would be ideal for consumption. I would personally advocate purchasing the whole seeds and finding a way to self powder, perhaps roasting or soaking if they are too strong for a blender.

Seeds often contain some sort of defense mechanism vs predators, so they may be hard to digest, and if so, a sort of extraction may be ideal, even an aqueous one (tea) may be better than eating the seeds raw.

I have a very sensitive nervous system, and am particularly sensitive to sedatives and analgesics. If I happen to procure some seeds, I will happily self test to confirm activity. I have read some negative reports of the seeds not working, however there may be conditions that need to be met before the activity manifests. Based on the mixed and varied experience reports out there, they are absolutely worth investigating, and may serve as a valid substitute if kratom is ever made illegal.

I will repost this on the Picralima thread.

You have a really beautiful site Koda. Quite a vast selection of botanicals. I can't wait to place an order. However I think it will take me a week to go though everything!

What are you looking for in particular? Something for Anxiety, Depression, Insomnia, Pain etc. I have taken a few of these products before in the past. I have never tried anything from Meridian Botanicals though.
