I am trying out Alternatives like Mitragyna Javanica, Mitragyna Hirsuta, Akuamma, Kava, CBD but they all pale in comparison to Speciosa.


Just goes to show you that Louisiana was wrong when they Banned some 40 + Herbs & Botanicals years ago. They had to Reverse it.

Leaders honored for changing Louisiana herb outlaw law
Dragnet to outlaw head-shop pot and 'shrooms pulled legit botanical supplements with it
Todd Runestad | Aug 28, 2015


The American Herbal Products Association released the name of nine companies that helped change an anti-drug law in Lousiana that inadvertently swept up as many as 30 legitimate herbs of commerce in a war-on-drugs law.

Suppliers, manufacturers and retailers were all part of the effort.

"AHPA and the herbal products industry greatly appreciates the generous support donated by these companies to help ensure consumer access to common herbal supplements that promote health and well being," said Tami Wahl, AHPA's Special Regulatory Counsel. "The financial contributions from these companies enabled AHPA to garner sufficient support from the Louisiana legislature to pass an amendment allowing these botanicals to be used in lawfully manufactured dietary supplements."

The companies were suppliers BI Nutraceuticals, Gaia Herbs, HG&H Pharmaceuticals, and PLT Health Solutions; manufacturers Health Concerns, Mountain Rose Herbs, NOW, and Traditional Medicinals; and retailer GNC.

Amendments advocated by AHPA, passed by the Louisiana legislature on June 9 and signed into state law on July 1, allows certain herbs that had been banned by the state to again be sold in dietary supplement products. The lobbying amended two pieces of legislation passed in 2005 and 2010 - Lousiana State Act No. 159 and House Bill 173 - that restricted the sale and possession of numerous herbs in the state.

The laws were designed to remove synthetic substances and herbs thought to have hallucinogenic properties from the marketplace and found in head shops, such as K2 and Spice. These were known on the street as being a sort of synthetic marijuana.


The laws also, inadvertently, covered some herbs commonly used in dietary supplements.

Among the 40 outlawed plants were Salvia divinorum, a psychoactive plant sometimes used to treat chronic drug addiction; damiana, a reported mood elevator, stimulant and aphrodisiac, and commonly used in "synthetic cannabis" formulations; and rosy periwinkle (Catharanthus raseus), which is used in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine traditions.

In order to qualify for the new exemption, dietary supplements with herbs previously banned by Louisiana must be manufactured and marketed in compliance with the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic (FD&C) Act. Among other requirements, this federal law requires companies to register their supplement manufacturing facility with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), products to be manufactured in accordance with FDA current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) requirements, and companies to report serious adverse events to the FDA.

"AHPA and the herbal products industry appreciate and support the efforts of the dedicated Louisiana lawmakers to protect their citizens from unsafe substances," said Tami Wahl, AHPA's Special Regulatory Council. "AHPA was able to garner support for this amendment by providing scientific evidence of the safety of these herbs and educating lawmakers about the effectiveness of the comprehensive federal regulations for dietary supplement products."

In my Home State of Louisiana Just a couple of days ago, the FDA convinced a legislator in Louisiana to file a bill to ban kratom completely.:angry:

So Please can you Contact the 2 Louisiana Senators for me & tell them your Story or Donate to the AKA. Thanks Friends!:)

www.kennedy.senate.gov/public/email-me

www.cassidy.senate.gov/contact/

I have emailed them several times & told them my Story & Explained to them about Kratom.


Latest from the AKA:

Kratom Warriors:

Maybe it’s Scott Gottlieb’s parting gift to the FDA – or maybe a signal the FDA is going step up its attack on kratom – but they are using their unlimited budget to go after the AKA.

We won in Utah. We won in Georgia.

And we are winning in a dozen other states right now, and the FDA has panicked!

Just a couple of days ago, the FDA convinced a legislator in Louisiana to file a bill to ban kratom completely.

We see anti-kratom bans popping up in numerous towns and counties across America – wherever the FDA can spread their lies about kratom and hope the AKA cannot get there with our lobbying team.

That’s why I am making this urgent plea to you today.

I have been on the phones non-stop trying to drum up the money I need to cover the costs of our lobbying and science teams to fight the FDA’s lies.

When we have the funds to get the job done, we can win. And that argument convinced a donor to help with a matching commitment for every dollar you contribute – but there is a catch.

The donor has agreed to match every dollar up to that first $50,000 I can raise – that is incredible.

But even better – that donor will then DOUBLE-MATCH EVERY DOLLAR FROM $50,000 TO $100,000!

The donor will keep that offer open for five days.

That was music to my ears because our lobbying and science costs are mounting every day, and I do not want to have to pull the plug on all of those efforts.

Particularly now that the FDA is doing all they can to ban kratom.

I have asked before, but now I desperately need your help today.

If you haven’t made a donation in the past, please consider helping now. If you have donated - thank you for your generosity!

I know many of you have responded to my pleas for donations in the past, and I am very grateful for all you have done.

Today, the threat of the FDA stopping our momentum is real, and that is why I desperately need your help.

Please hurry, I need to collect these donations immediately.

My budget for lobbying and science is depleted, so I need every dollar I can collect to help us take full advantage of this very generous matching offer.

Please dig as deep as you can to make a donation today, and thank you again for your support.

Thank you,


David Herman
