Dangers of Cheap Kratom

kratom in the forest

Kratom has become a popular herbal supplement in recent years. Because of this, more vendors are making kratom products available online. As any smart shopper would, people are searching for the best price and best value for their money.

But does the cheapest kratom also mean the lowest quality? How are online vendors able to sell kratom products at such competitive prices? Smart shopping must also include a search for quality products from reputable companies like Lifted Organics Lab.

Several steps in the production process must occur to ensure a quality product. Skipping any one of them cuts costs, but also calls the quality of the product into question.

  • The supplier should monitor production.
  • They should test their products for bacteria and heavy metals.
  • The manufacturing facility should take proper sanitation measures.
  • They should ensure all their products receive UVGI (ultraviolet germicidal irradiation).

When it comes to natural products, companies who skimp on quality control can put customers at risk. The cheapest kratom products can cause serious health complications.

Contaminants and Adulterants

A kratom product should contain 100% pure kratom. There should be no fillers or other dried products mixed in, nor should there be any added chemicals used during processing that synthetically mimic the composition of natural kratom.The cheapest kratom products will usually contain foreign additives that could lower the overall quality of the kratom. 

Using added chemicals to treat and/or process the kratom not only undoes the natural state of the product, but it contaminates processing equipment as well. It is worth the time to research the vendor before you buy to ensure that they do not do business with disreputable suppliers. Also, reputable manufacturers share their quality control and testing procedures with their customers.

State Certified Quality Control Testing

If any dried product is not appropriately handled during processing and packaging, there is a risk for e. Coli and other dangerous pathogens to make their way into cheap kratom products.

Kratom powders and tea leaves can be easily exposed to pathogens like e.Coli, even when the company adheres to all the right protocols. Suppliers and vendors must continually test their products.

At Lifted Organics Lab we have partnered with a state certified quality control laboratory (2 River Labs). We have them test for bacteria and heavy metals. Also, all of our products receive ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI), which is a disinfection method that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet (UV-C) light to kill or inactivate microorganisms. This process allows us to provide high-quality, lab-tested, organically grown kratom to our customers.

No Question Should Go Unanswered

As a customer, you have the right to know what is in your products as well as what goes into the processing. What’s more, the vendor should be willing to tell you and have those quality control processes documented online.

If you have any questions about our testing practices, supply methodology, or manufacturing processes, please contact us. We encourage you to do the same with any other vendor. All vendors should be willing and able to talk about their safety practices. At Lifted Organics Labs, we are proud to do so!

The cheapest kratom products might be tempting, but remember, there can be hidden dangers hiding behind that low price. A little research on your part can help you select a quality Kratom product at an appropriate price.
