Vendor Questions and Answers
Q: What year did you begin?
Q: What was your motivation for starting your company?
A: My story of pain goes back at least 10 years to where, after being in sports and running several miles daily, took its toll on the body. The pain got so bad to where I was almost walking with a cane 5 years ago. I refused to take opiates after seeing the damaging effects it has with addiction. Although effective, the risks were not worth it to me. I toiled several years just “sucking it up.” My Doctors only could see that I had compressed lower disks causing sciatica and thus back pain. They suggested exploratory surgery. I decided to try Chiropractic work. I was told that my body was so tight that it was difficult to adjust. So I signed up for Massage Envy to loosen the muscles in hopes that I could be adjusted easier. This worked slightly but not enough because of the pain.
I went home to Utah to visit family during Christmas time and was complaining that I couldn’t sleep because of my pain. My friend told me that he just got back from a trip in Northern Thailand on an elephant trek. He suffered chronic pain as well. He told the trekking guide about not being able to sleep very well. They recommended a leaf from a tree that the locals used called Ketum (aka Kratom) . They made him tea from the leaves of a tree from a nearby village and it took away his pain. He said that it was the best sleep he’s had in years. He offered me some that night and it worked. I slept like a baby. He was thinking of importing this plant to help others suffering as we were.
My friend tossed around the thought of bringing this plant to the USA. That night I told him that I would bring it back to Texas. He started a Kratom Company. A year after that I decided to start my own company.
Soon my massages were less painful and my Chiropractor was able to adjust me properly. I was feeling better. But my pain kept coming back after a few months. Finally my Dr. decided to have me see an orthopedic specialist to see if there were any other underlying problems. I had an X-ray of my hips. I went in to my appointment expecting a Cortisone shot. After looking at my X-rays he asked me. “Do you want the Good news or bad news first?” I said. “Let’s start with the bad news.” Well, you have Osteoarthritis and you need a hip replacement at 45 years old. The good news is, it is so bad, we need to do it immediately.” He told me that my hip was grinding bone on bone and causing me to adjust my posture to compensate, which caused my entire frame to shift. This compressed my disks in my lower back which caused more back pain and sciatica. 2-3 weeks later I had surgery and a quick recovery. Without Kratom I would have probably been bed ridden or risked falling into addiction to opiates. Kratom made my life manageable until my Doctors were able to find the root cause of all my pain.
Come to find out, Kratom is new to the USA. But in South East Asia it has been used for generations by local villagers. Most medicines are derived from natural plants. For example. White willow bark. Aspirin is derived from the bark of a tree. Who knew. Kratom was “discovered” by a Dutch botanist in the 1800’s. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pieter_Willem_Korthals
Just like Opiates, Kratom didn’t cure my existing problems, but it made my days manageable and vastly reduced my suffering.
Until recently, I rarely needed Kratom. In the last few months I started suffering from more frequent migraines and lower back pain. My Chiropractor just told me that I have severe compressed disks now in my neck. Bone on Bone.
With the work of modern Doctors and all natural medicine like Kratom, I have hope and a plan to become pain free again.
Q: What are your future plans for the company?
A: It’s very important for me to bring a safe clean product to my customers. Having invested in modern equipment as well as quality control methods, I see us to be able to help other companies achieve the same level of standards. After our big expansion and finally able to put in our submission to the AKA approved GMP program, we are now in a position to help other smaller companies achieve the same standards set by the AKA, to meet upcoming KCPA regulations. We have put a great team together to make this happen. I wouldn’t be here today without the great family that we have put together to help others that may be suffering.
Q: What separates your company from others like yours?
A: We are a complete from the source to consumer turn key company. I fly to Indonesia 3 times a year (ex. 2020) Total of 15 times so far. I go into the jungles of Indonesia to visit the villagers where kratom grows naturally. We have scouts that will bring back samples for Alkaloid testing to see if it has quality. Once we find an area with great quality I will fly over to Indonesia to visit with the village elders and families that collect the leaf’s. We relay that we do test for not only Alkaloids but Heavy Metals and Micro such as E-Coli, Salmonella, yeast and mold. Then we set up to build drying facilities for the small village that they can use as a co-op to ensure proper drying of the leaf’s. Many rural areas put the leaf’s on a tarp and dry in the sun. The risk of chickens, cats and other animals walking on the leaf’s is eliminated when using these drying facilities. Thus reduces contamination.
Through my many travels to Indonesia, I have been able to visit with government officials on ensuring safe export as well as discussing policy. I’ve joined the American Kratom Association on both trips to Jakarta along with a couple of other vendors. I was able to be “In the room where it happens” with the Indonesian BNN (DEA), Ministry of Health, Dep of Forestry, Agriculture, Pharmacy, etc. I was able to take Senator Curt Bramble deep in the jungles of Borneo to experience where it comes from.
