BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND...
A few months ago we asked some of the Approved Vendors to offer some discounts to our community. A lot of them graciously did. We have been asked to bring those discounts back. The following vendors would like to share the love for this forum with you. I know we all appreciate it.

Hello,

I am new to the forum and was solicited by the editors to participate. So here I am.
I offer Kratom counseling to my clients and can point them in the direction of lab tested, user recommended products. I will most likely have a vendor listing soon, so I look forward to chatting with folks that have questions. I don't know it all, but I have been studying MITRAGYNA SPECIOSA for just over a year now, collecting data from clients nation wide. It's not my intention to publish and research per se, but I do plan to share results with the World. (Good or Bad)

Subjects are daily users of Kratom and my or may not be using some other medication to manage pain.
Subjects keep a daily journal with dosages, strains, and metered scales of pain through out the day.
Subjects are limited in the amount of Kratom they can ingest each day.
Subjects are required to remain hydrated throughout the day.
Forum members that have questions regarding this mini study, please feel free to respond.
All PMs will remain confidential.
DK

Hi, Nana70:

Laurie and I are trying to figure out what's going on here. Somebody has been "solicited by the editors" to do a study and then sell their lab-tested products. Could be true... or maybe not. But we'll find out.

I have not offered any services to forum members. I simply ask if they had questions, they could PM me.
Data is the only thing I plan to make available. Study is currently full.

Yes, it appears the editors are surfing the net, looking for vendors to sell licenses to. I plan to buy one, but yes, that is happening.

DK, I find inconsistencies in your story. I know the people you refer to as "the editors" -- and they don't sell licenses. A person in this country doesn't need a license to sell kratom.

You say that data is the only thing you plan to make available, but in your introduction you said, "I offer Kratom counseling to my clients and can point them in the direction of lab tested, user recommended products." Ones that you hope to sell?

Many of us on this forum have 5, 7, or even 10 years of using and studying kratom, but you plan to give us advice about it with one year of study. That's a bold claim!

I'll wait until I hear from the managers of this forum. But I'm thinking Nan70 has guessed the identity of our mystery guest.

That's it, for now.

I can share with you the correspondence. How did you think you have a list of approved vendors? They have proven themselves first, and then they pay. The application is attached for any other vendors that are curious.

Let me guess, the forum Bullies? I have my own business, this is charity work for people that don't know everything like you guys apparently do.

I am also on AKA if your worried about me being a mystery guest........

I don’t see DK on the Vendor List.

Perhaps an introduction without erroneous references like “editors web surfing”?

I’m reviewing the vendor list now. None of them paid to be listed. They DO pay for advertising space. None come close to DK. Is that your full name? Are you a potential vendor? What type of license will you be buying (and maybe we can then guess your purpose)?

I can assure you there are no forum “bullies”. We do scrutinize to protect members from clever spammers that sneak past the safety features. This is simply standard protocol until users/members are validated as safe.

Nothing personal.

This community is one little leg of the LARGE kratom community and we welcome help, advice.

The floor is yours, DK..

The LACK of information as to how we might be of help to you (nope since the “study” is full) or you can help us in some way?

Please clarify your purpose? Yes, we ask that of everyone to be of help to them.

Welcome to the best kratom forum ever, DK.

Healthy dialogue will be great.

I have been asked to explain my reason for posting and my intentions. I am very happy to hear that I won't need to pay to be on the approved vendor list. Once again, members that do not know everything, may have questions about the successes and failures, works in progress, and miracles of Kratom. Participants were selected so that I could offer a diverse pool of data. For example; a group that was trying to replace or reduce anti-anxiety medications. I am not a Dr. but I have a pool of data that can help those trying to achieve a specific goal by using Kratom, a tool to do so in an educated and informed manner. It is not my goal to solicit business in the forum with fancy ads, but with constructive conversation. I assume most members have their favorite suppliers already, and as I said before, I really don't more clients, or study participants at this time.
For those actually interested in participating in conversation, and not just interested in pissing contests are welcome to post. Subject Pool is only 25 people at the current time. NO double blind placebo group so data is limited in its actual research value. It was designed more to discover a way to allow kratom users to get the most out the products, whoever the vendor may be. Some participants elected to ingest kratom in order to address pain, some have issues with focus, and some have been using Kratom since 2003 and were having issues with dosage now. The participants journal their experiences over a 6 month period and at the end we will have hope to have found a way for subjects to take as little kratom as possible, while maintaining the sensation of well being, and significantly reduced pain, and reduce or remove opiate medication all together. Participants were not forced to reduce medication intake, but were asked to use it as needed. All participants agreed to remain on any and all anti depressant/ anxiety, continuing to use it throughout the 6 month period.
If forum members can imagine what the blood work might look like for someone that has been using kratom almost 20 years ie. long term effects on liver and kidneys from subjects that chose to ingest 30 plus grams daily. We are lucky to have a few subjects that are actively seeing a physician, have communicated their use of Kratom and asked to have Kidneys and Liver.
One client has had Hepatitis C and actively managing pain while suffering from a deadly liver disease, if left untreated. We were able to peak at their blood work along with a physician's explanation. I feel like some of these subject scenarios are unique, all are taking Kratom to address a wide scope of concerns. Participants are simply good people, most fighting pain, all willing to share their experience with others anonymously.

I have about 100 loyal customers that I'd like to invite to participate in a constructive kratom forum, some of which are subjects now collecting data. I was excited when I received a message on the web site, that I had been selected to apply for a vendor pass. Often times forums are funny about that stuff, some apparently more than others. I think a " welcome to the forum, can you tell us more about your study" might have been received differently than.... we don't solicit vendors, (which you in fact do,) go back to Indonesia and learn English.

Lovely group of people you have here, I must say.
