Hey what's up everybody. Adam from Otie's Botanicals here. I wanted to share an experience I had the other day. So we had a situation the other day where someone posted some slanderous comments about us in an arena similiar to this one. It wasn't long till that person was kicked out because A- they had never placed an order and could not provide a name or order number and B-they had just joined the place where this happened at. It was clear this was a sabatoge mission. I'm not sure if this was a person acting alone, or put up to it by another vendor. I'll go crazy thinking about who and why would they do that. Being that type of a person is not in my blood. I want to see everyone win. Success is for everyone who wants it. Of course I am competing against other vendors, but for me it's a friendly competition. We already have so much against us. So with that being said I would like to recommend two other vendors besides myself.

Soflo kratom- Nick has become a very good friend of ours. We exchange idea with each other and give each other. We shared trade leaf from time to time and I have been nothing but satisfied. If you are thinking about planning an order Nick will take care of you. From customer service to quality products Nick knows what he is doing. www.soflokratom.com

Fused Flora- Fused Flora is an up and coming business like alot of us. I've had the pleasure of speaking to him several times. And I have also heard what customers are saying. Nothing but good things. He doesnt just sell Kratom but he also sells other ethnobotanicals like hirsuta,akuamma, blue lotus etc etc. I have never tried his Kratom but others have and I would totally be comfortable placing an order as a customer. I look forward to seeing what the future had in store for him and his company. www.fusedflora.com

Thanks Adam, I appreciate the shout out. It's been an awesome community having good neighbors and keeping the product as good as it is. I've tried so much expensive stuff that is crap, with the owners being greed driven machines. You and other of our brothers are a breath of fresh air.

The way I see it, this could go the one of two ways: 1. Like MJ and impossible for small vendors to get into, as policy and legislation rules in favor of the wealthy and lobbyists (impossibly regulated and cost prohibitive for consumers with multimillion dollar cannabis farms only). 2. Like craft beer with small vendors proliferating and keeping big beer moderate and having better beer all around.

I hope for option 2, where a bunch of small vendors continue to keep the big guys on edge by offering superior product, customer service, and a sharing of community. While being safe for everyone.

We're essential to each other, and I truly appreciate your friendship, professionalism, and just being a damn good neighbor.

Dang, that's shitty. It's frustrating when you see something super out of place like that. We had that happen once a couple of years ago. Someone tried to leave a really nasty review on the website and come to find out they never even ordered from us. Crazy.

Much agreed. Great way of putting it.

Yeah it was crazy. Was in one of the discord servers so people saw it. They joined and then 10 minutes later said how we are the worst vendor ever and our product gave them diarrhea lol that was my first red flag because I never heard of Kratom doing that. and then when one of our customers ask them what strains they tried and when they ordered, we cross reference them with our lab results which was clean. Then when asked for the information there was no response. They got kicked out but not before they sent one of my customers some porn smfh

I’m sorry to hear that Adam , good thing whoever it was got booted off of whatever platform they were on.... I totally dig Nick and Shaun.... good people !!

I haven’t been much of a customer of your business... but I respect your warm and kind approach since day one here... if I had more $ I would have made good on your sale.. which was extremely generously priced !! I’ll check back in around tax season !!:-bd

It’s not like lord of the rings ... “ there can be only one !!” Lol.... I believe in good rotation of vendors , you and the other peeps you mentioned are all very worthy and I appreciate what you folks do , can’t thank you guys/ gals enough !!

Good form Otie’s , Soflo, Fused Flora !!!!

Much respect !!!

adam,

I am so sorry to hear this! I know its hard to see the bad in people, but we all know its there. haters are gonna hate. if they are talking nonsense trash, it may hurt. especially if its your lifes work/ dream to make it happen. and it came true. to have that kind of slander is criminal. but that means that the 'bigger guys' feel threatened. that in itself is a complement.

there are many 'grass roots' followers here that KNOW you are good price for great products.

its possible its a college aged person that this may have happened to. but their 'lifestyle' probably contributed to the reaction vs. blame kratom. not judging, been there! but if they couldnt provide any info, its highly unlikely.

I agree with you on 'top 2' other vendors than you. I honestly have many vendors as 'faves' we all know rotate strains companies, ect.. to be an effective consumer. since we are going there, if any of you have tried/ had re-leaf llc ( maine ) it might seem a little wacky at first but their blends are top notch. and im really picky, I usually blend my own. just FYI I have a monthly subscription from them and pay 23 for 100 grams every month. they always send extra and the first month they sent me a 250 g monster bag extra. just like oties for every $ spent you get points for future orders.

in no way am I dismissing anyones product. especially oties, fused flora or soflo! I just won a kilo of my choice from fused flora! its better than Christmas morning!

I just wanted to pass along a smart business model that grabbed my attention. especially during a busy work season, I didn't have to worry about ordering as often. of course if you commit to more the price goes down. I just get paid bi-weekly so I cant afford to bounce! and now that the season is slower I have to watch all costs. anyways im rambling.

adam, I am truly disgusted on this sabotage attempt. I truly believe in karma and im sure they will get theirs in one way or another. negative bad ju-ju right back at em!

I saw it going down and was impressed with how swiftly the boot came. Booting is never the first option and is a drastic option. But it was THE RIGHT THING for this circumstance.

For the record, I HAVE heard of kratom giving a person diarrhea - it has happened. But that is NOT an accusation and it was NOT from Otie’s Botanicals. It WAS from a very reputable vendor and a replacement strain resolved the “issue”.

Thank you for the touch of class y’all have added to the community with this open discussion.

Kratom actually fixed my IBS which is a blessing.
