I'm thrilled to hear that! Not that I'm surprised but tell me, what did you think of the other strains you received?

Hi! I just had to let you know how happy I am that I ordered from you, despite all the junk that's said on reddit, you are top notch! Just got my first order yesterday and I was happy to see they were vacuumed sealed!I tried only one blend so far but I'm so happy with it! From the color to the freshness, just awesome. The best I've had in awhile so thank you for that :)

I'm glad you found that because I'd like the chance to prove it's completely false. I actually had to file cease and desist orders to at least one person I tracked down doing this. There is absolutely no foundation for the libel they spout.

But here is exactly what happened. And I offer you personally AmKratomhelps to order anything up to $100 and I will send the order free of charge. If you like what you get, you can pay me, if you don't, then you don't :)

When I first opened my doors in Feb 2015, I had no capital to start. I made the mistake of trusting another Kratom vendor who ran a company (and still does) named Botanical Temple. Now they are legit and I don't have any ill will towards the owner, but I started off by drop shipping all my orders through them. And what resulted was miscommunication causing errors in orders, missed and delayed orders and such. At the same time I had burst onto the Kratom scene as a complete noob selling kratom at $99 a kilo and $29 for 250g. I pissed of a lot of vendors when I suddenly was making 15-20 sales a day and people were flocking to me and away from them.

I've since learned that it's not possible to sustain a business with such a small profit margin and I regret making enemies early on by my simple ignorance of the market. But I did, and they took advantage of the shipping issues and raked me over the coals. There were 2 vendors in particular that I have proof that they were behind most of it and most of the folks on Reddit never once ordered from me. Every single real customer that had issues with their order was compensated with full refunds or generous extra amounts of kratom (one person who ordered a kilo I actually sent 2 additional kilos to).

So what I ask you to do is to check ANY of the Facebook groups where I am an approved and vetted vendor and there are many of them. Kratom Kandid, Sacred Botanicals, Bad Doctor Good Doctor, Elite Kratom, Kratom Community Forum (not this one, ironically we had no idea that we used the same name for our Facebook group when we started it as here), and more. Only one of those groups did I start (KCF) and I don't run it anymore, I just have most of my customers in there.

It's now been since October 2015 that I've stopped any and all drop shipping because it was destroying my business. I established my sources in Indonesia and Malaysia and have more than 2 dozen single strains and several blends. All of them are packed and shipped by myself and my wife. We are a small business supplying a large array of customers and growing exponentially since we started doing only our own stocking and shipping.

I'd be happy to show pictures of my packing and shipping room which is routinely sterilized and I use best practices in all storage and handling of the products including surgical masks, hair nets, non-latex gloves, Legal for Trade Scales, etc.

I invite you all to weigh for yourself what you see out there. Yes, there is a kernel of truth to the claims. I had issues in the beginning. It was never intentional, I never tried to hide from it, I only changed my company name once not 4 times like they claim, and just look at the way things are talked about. Dripping with venom. Does that sound like legitimate issues to you? Not one person in my year+ of being open has ever been cheated or lost money or product. Every single time it has been compensated for even when it's not my fault :)

Make your own mind up, but I invite any of you to call or text me to ask any questions you want any time. 719-357-6001

I did a little research and this guy has a lot of bad press on reddit for being a scammer. Not saying he is but it did defer me from buying from this vendor. Looking out for my fellow forum members you can read a little bit on this link and make your own decision. https://www.reddit.com/r/kratom/comments/40ebip/matt_frank_aka_ethicalkratom_aka_naturesherbsus/

The Florida trees are young, about 2 years. I don't own them, I buy from another US vendor. They tell me they test out between 1.9-2.2% total and the reviews of them seem to indicate the same.

My Imported products are coming from trees more than 2 generations old on a wild grown farm. No chemicals ever used (Florida tree's are organic as well)

How old are the plants themselves? Not the end product.

Hey there! I don't have a public store as of yet although I am working on that as we speak. Right now I run it out of my home but it's growing so fast that won't suffice for long lol! However, I do deliver and meet folks to sell the Kratom. I often meet folks at the Bass Pro shopping center in Northern Colorado Springs and also can meet up in Denver area or Pueblo if needed. You can call or text me anytime at 719-660-0550
