What is Kratom
Kratom is a natural herbal substance from Southeast Asia. It has been used for centuries as a non-toxic, medicinal ingredient in herbal medicine, and also for its mind-stimulating effects. Over time it has also evolved into a powder that is sometimes used for fighting an opioid addiction. It originated in Southeast Asia, specifically Thailand, Malaysia, Borneo, and Indonesia.

Where Do The Kratom Crazy Plants Come From?
All Kratom Crazy kratom is sustainably and organically sourced. One of the major problems facing the Kratom industry is over farming in a given area and taking too many of the young, immature plants before they have time to fully mature and spread into the next generation. Kratom Crazy works with the farmers in Southeast Asia to sustainably harvest only the larger, more mature plants and leave the younger plants to continue growing, and also to rotate where they are picking from so no single area becomes depleted. This ensures that the harvests bring high quality kratom to the market for years to come.
After the leaves are harvested, the drying process is very important. Improper drying will ruin the delicate alkaloid structures inside of the plants, and so the kratom farmers use the best practices known in order to deliver a high quality product. They do all of their drying indoors, out of direct sunlight, and place the leaves on special racks that permit the free flow of the air. As the leaves are aired out, they will dry on both the top and the bottom, so they will be completely ready for grinding.
Grinding is the third step. Again, Kratom Crazy encourages its farmers to use the best known practices when finishing the raw materials of their kratom. As a result of their commitment to quality, Kratom Crazy has a very high standard for their packaged products, and will offer a complete refund within thirty days to anyone who is not satisfied with their results.
One definite benefit to the Kratom Crazy brand is that they deal directly with the farmers, without having middlemen between them and their source. This gives the company the ability to control how the kratom is sourced, dried, ground, and packaged for their customers, and to ensure that best practices are used at every step of the way. Many companies will import their kratom from other companies, who do the actual purchasing in Southeast Asia but then export the materials. Those companies then lose a lot of control over how the kratom is processed and sourced, thus risking the quality of their finished product.
What Makes Kratom So Special?
There are over forty known alkaloids in Kratom leaves, many of which have a soothing effect on pain and muscular aches. When made into a traditional herbal tea or exfoliator, they form the basis of the plant’s healing properties, and are on the cutting edge of research into botanical medicine.
- Mitragynine: the most common alkaloid in Kratom, act as an opioid receptor
- Mitraphylline: a non-narcotic that acts as on the body’s opioid receptors
- 7-hydroxymitragynine: an alkaloid specific to kratom, known for its analgesic affects
- Mitragynine Pseudoindoxyl: a rearrangement of 7-hydroxymitragynine, known to be a more potent analgesic than morphineSome companies do not test their kratom in every batch, but use random testing to ensure quality. Quality can vary from one batch to another, and in another sign of their commitment to quality, Kratom Crazy does test every batch before selling it to consumers.
Capsules vs DIY Self-Encapsulation
One benefit of buying from a larger supplier versus a smaller one is the convenience of pre-enclosed capsules. The capsules from Kratom Crazy are 100 percent organic kratom, and vegetarian, with no animal by-products of any kind. The company sells several varieties that their customers can pick from when selecting the flavor and type that they want. Unlike bulk powders, capsules take no time at all to prepare after the product has been shipped out to the home, and they store very easily in the home. Many people do not own or want to be bothered with a DIY or home encapsulating machine, and they would be a potential candidate of those who buy the ready-made capsules.
