Who we are and Why we are here.... from In Sense/Gold Leaf Botanicals
Its been a while since I have posted, but we have been sure to have other people from https://insensebotanicals.com here.
The I Love Kratom Forum has been so much of a help to everyone nowadays... and because of the newer people here, I feel a need to re-introduce ourselves and let everyone know what we are about.
Back in 2015, I went to my doctor who basically told me I would have to be on pain medication for the rest of my life. I told the people I was working for about this, because with my other duties as a laborer my job involved driving trucks and heavy equipment. I told them what the doctor said. They told me, "they don't think that will be too big of a deal as long as its doctors orders etc...' and then they said "but, check these out, they have been pretty amazing"
I was given a few capsules of this plant from the coffee family called Kratom ( Mitragyna Speciosa). I tried it and was simply amazed by the relief and the MANY different properties this amazing plant provides. I was shocked...I aksked “How come nobody knows about this? I was stunned at what that small amount of this simple plain leaf was able to do.
Thus started my Journey with Kratom 😀
I studied, read and continued to learn more and more about this AMAZING plant. As I continued to study about the costs, wholesale and retail, I realized that many people were getting charged entirely too much, like up to 5000% more than the cost!
What good is this plant going to do if no one can afford it? 😲
By 2016 I had started my business when I heard the FDA trying to schedule it, along with the pharmaceutical companies and more, so I went to Washington D.C. for the protest, met the American Kratom Association and many people that were there because they wanted to fight for the freedom to choose, and my choice then and now is Kratom. Thus, I was sold after the trip to Washington and proceeded to build In Sense Botanicals and Gold Leaf Botanicals as if my life depended on it, because it did. I quit my union job when I saw the business needed my undivided attention if it were going to continue to grow.
Soon after that I was introduced to this forum, where I saw people trying to help other people and I appreciated that. I read so much about this plant by so many different people that were experiencing many different good things, “that Kratom enhanced their life and made it better” for things from depression to high anxiety to occasional pain relief. Some just replaced their morning coffee with kratom because it helped pick up their mood and spirit and even gave them a bit of energy, and some used it to relax their evening. I learned that it depends on each persons own individual body chemistry which makes it a unique experience for most everyone.
We moved into a new location, hired personnel, got further licensing and all of the items needed to be a legitimate trustworthy business, that tests everything to be sure we were always selling a high quality product. I did further work finally found some reputable people in Indonesia that had a similar reason for being here, so we began importing all of our own Kratom and other products, which meant even more testing and record keeping, then comes the cGMP, workers comp, warehouse rent and more and finally learned why sometimes the price has to go up to be able to continue to function and compete.
We try to keep it worth while for everyone with reasonable prices, sales and even developing NEW products like 'EKspress' for the customers convenience. Which tastes great and acts VERY quickly, and is a different than many of the other Kratom liquids out there today. We also carry Enhanced of a few different types, which are enhanced with 45% FULL Spectrum Extract. So the customers can start knowing and seeing, that its more than just the MIT that makes Kratom do what it does. Pynantheine and many other alkaloids help Mitragynine do what it does. The pharmaceutical companies tried to isolate 7Hydroxy and Mitragynine and found out that they don't behave the same unless they have all the other alkaloids with them.
Lately some of the Kratom companies seem to be trying to rid the smaller companies by simply out matching their prices in all ways. They pay less amounts for worse Kratom and undercut our prices.
. What I got to learn was that besides having multi million dollars to work with, Some have been paying many farmers little more than what it costs to grow it, so the farmers don't really have a reason to continue to grow it. This concerned me. If we don't at least allow them to make a little money, then they could just stop growing Kratom....then, where would all of us be? As much as I would love to just give Kratom away, I found, I have to at least make a small amount of money just to pay our bills and continue to grow, or we wont be here.
We are building for more, and we need everyone! Yet, we also see that the proper testing for customer safety can't be accomplished if I am selling kilos for $50 or $60 dollars. Corners are being cut somewhere, to offer at that price.
I believe my customers safety is not worth a shortcut! 😊
while we sell High quality Kratom Powder, we also have more new liquids coming soon as well as Kratom that tests out at near 1.8% or even higher and other helpful botanicals and even potentiators. We want to be here to provide Good Quality Kratom, but we want to do it in a way that won't compromise the quality or our customers safety. We want to be here for a long time and know there is many new things coming soon in the Kratom Industry.
Soon we will merge https://insensebotanicals.com and https://goldleafbotanicals.net websites into just one. Gold Leaf will be a NEW Store name, to allow us to continue to grow. We will carry the most popular "wild" strains from Gold Leaf and we will also carry the most popular from In Sense, we will have 2 different types on one website, with even more new stuff to come.
We want to be here for our customers, to provide a clean, safe product that doesn’t cut the corners. We made it through COVID and are getting ready for more, but we need you! Each and every one of you to help bring this amazing plant into the light of Today. We are attending A meeting in Indonesia for some of these new things that are about to happen. 🙂
Oh Yeah...Yes, we believe in customer service and we answer the phone for everyone during business hours. If it werent for our customers, we wouldn't be here.
Thank You Everyone!
Kratom on! 👍
