Welcome to Kratom.com 

The Founder of the Kratom Industry

Since 2001 

 

I have lived in Indonesia for more than 35 years. The new millennium was a very interesting and inspiring time for me. One big adventure exploring two different paths. In the late 1990’s I was on the hunt for new and interesting species of reptiles in remote Indonesia. My quest finally came true in 2001 when I found an island inhabited by a bright blue monitor lizard still unknown to science! I received one of the biggest honours possible when it was named after me, Varanus macraei or the Blue Spotted Tree Monitor.

Also at around the same time I was also on the hunt for a certain tree that I had heard very good and interesting things about, Mitragyna speciosa korth.

I had heard about it from Thailand. There were a few stories going around from there but it was unheard of in Indonesia until 2001 when I also finally found my first kratom tree growing on the island of Borneo. By the end of the year I had sent out lots of free samples to all the ethnobotanical suppliers that were on the web. Sending out the samples was like dispersing seeds. I knew it would take off, it was just a matter of time and I’ve been a witness to that ever since…...

I made the synonymous names of Maeng Da, Bali & Thai by differentiating different types and strains of leaf and protecting the locations of the trees at that time. You can read about that here 

By 2003/4 Kratom started to appear on the internet with a handful of vendors selling it for us. Today it has become almost a household name in the United States with an estimated 5 million users. There is now plenty of new evidence and science that shows us that the Kratom alkaloids are in many case much more effective but also much safer than traditional opioid medicines and prescription drugs. Mitragynine has very little over dose or abuse potential compared to any other opioid and does not cause respiratory failure like other opioids drugs do.

Setting New Standards

Look at the inconsistency in the kratom industry. There are no guidelines or units of measurement  to determine the strength of the kratom that you are buying. By measuring the amount of Mitragynine we can establish a measurement system to show exactly how "strong" the product is. Mitragynine is the most abundant alkaloid found in all types of kratom along with an array of other very interesting alkaloids which all vary in amounts and concentrations depending on the time of the year and geographical areas.

The amount of Mitragynine in percentage or milligrams could be displayed for every Kratom product similar to the alcohol percentage in alcoholic beverages, Nicotine in Tobacco and THC in Marijuana.

 

This label clears shows the amount of the active alkaloid Mitragynine. Clear & responsible labelling.

 

Sustainable Kratom

Borneo suffers from drastic deforestation for Palm Oil production and logging. We are one of the very few companies in Borneo to be planting trees!! Kratom is a healthy sustainable industry or at least it should be. Some companies still literally cut down wild growing Kratom trees in order to easily collect all the leaves, they then sell the wood for timber therefore using the whole tree. This though is not our policy and rather than cutting down trees we have been doing the opposite and we have been planting them for many years!!

Moving ahead into the future it won’t be long before we will see specific types of kratom being commercially grown from genetically influenced clones to produce certain types and strengths of kratom similar to the medical marijuana industry.

Genetically cloned Kratom plants will become a thing of the future.

KRATOM PLANTATION

Kratom Farm Plantation

Modern day extracts

The purity of any plant is seen in its extraction. Plant extracts are the most concentrated form of a plant where only the essences and essential parts of the plant are left, everything else is discarded. The essential parts of the Kratom plant are it’s alkaloids and that’s what needs to be extracted. Kratom has proved to be particularly difficult to find a method to make a good quality extract. Most of the commercial extracts that you see on the market today contain less than 3% Mitragynine by volume.

 

In 2014 we embarked on a project  to produce the highest quality kratom extracts and isolates for the industry. We invested a large amount of money into R&D to determine how we could produce a “food grade” quality extract with a purity that had never been seen on the commercial Kratom market. By the end of 2015 we had finally developed our own unique methodthat extracts only the pure whole alkaloid fraction from the leaf. This is known as our 100% Full Spectrum Kratom Alkaloid Extract.

We can even enrich this alkaloid fraction even further to completely discard all the alkaloids leaving only Mitragynine. This is known as a Mitragynine Isolate.  

The Raw leaf that we use in this process is grown and harvested by ourselves and is very carefully monitored for quality at source. It is then shipped to our extraction facility where we produce our extracts in accordance to GMP practices. We set up and designed our own special facility in order to be able to produce this on a commercial scale. Prior to this, something like this has never been done before on a commercial scale. The process is very long and complicated and we take a lot of care to make sure that the final product is completely neutralized and purged to make sure that it is completely free from dangerous solvent residues before leaving our facility. We send every batch to an independent lab to test for residual solvents and each batch comes with a certificate of analysis showing that these levels completely comply and more than often are much better than the recommended USP 467 Guidelines!

Microbiological tests are also done for Salmonella. 
All batches of finished product are supplied with HPLC test results showing the strength of the product which is measured by the amount of Mitragynine & 7-Hydroxymitragynine present.

One Scientific study shows that Mitragynine is safer than plain leaf!

 

 A part of our extraction facilty

Mitragynine pure compound.

It is a scientific fact that Mitragynine  cannot dissolve in water. Here we have managed to make a liquid extract. It is very concentrate and contains 150mg of extract (In any concentration) in every 1ml of liquid.  A very small amount of liquid can be dropped into any drink for convienience of use. Being a liquid and being a pure molecule alkaloid means that it has very good bio availabilty and gets absorbed by the body very quickly.
