Hi guys.. I hope everyone is having a fantastic summer!!! πŸ„β€β™€οΈπŸ–πŸ‘™β˜€οΈ

Just wanted to hop on and give thanks to the American Kratom Association and all the hard work they do.

Below is a collage of scientific studies on Kratom, published by the American Kratom Association. You can also find a list of reputable vendors that are all GMP certified on their website, at https://www.americankratom.org/vendor/gmp-participants.html

The American Kratom Association ~

June 16th, 2021

β€˜We often encourage elected officials to follow the science on kratom, but what are some of the most impactful scientific articles for us to read and share? To help answer that question we’ve compiled a top ten list that kratom advocates can read and share with family, friends, and our elected officials.’

  2. I want to second this, especially since I’ve been complaining a bit about how hard it is to wait. The KCPA bill in tx is dead, and even though I’m still extremely angry over it, I don’t blame the AKA, at all. I’m not sure what went wrong, but we’ll eventually get one, either next legislative session or a national KCPA. Speaking personally, the hardest part of this is the expectation of another all out attack, and not being able to do much to prevent it. I do not, nor have I ever, blamed the AKA, although I do wish they were easier to get ahold of, but that’s not a complaint at all.

  3. I wanted to correct my last comment. The problem seems to be, I have this second hand, but the problem in texas was most certainly not a plot, not a conspiracy of any kind, but some sort of political fight which resulted in the legislature shutting down, so the KCPA got tabled until it opens again. But a couple of kratom vendors in texas, I’m not sure which ones, say we had near total support from the senate, so when we get another chance, it looks good. I don’t mean to commandeer kami’s article but I wanted to update anyone who cares so they wouldn’t wonder for days like I did. The AKA does know what it’s doing even when it feels like they might not. Waiting has always been hard for me.
