Always looking for more uses f

Always looking for more uses for all Kratom parts, such a beautiful and hardy tree. As far as petals, this is definitely my favorite. Floral incense ❤️

I also added a few Marigold Petals (seeds removed and saved for later planting or swapping), Lavender,  and the smallest amount of Lantana Flowers.

The fragrance of Kratom Flowers is already absolutely divine, but omg this mix is absolutely out of control!! 

What are your favorite uses for this beautiful tree? I would love to hear absolutely every experience!!

2 more quick clones... &nbsp;P

2 more quick clones...

 PRO TIP:  a gallon bag fits a 6 inch pot perfectly too. Keeps humidity in. lots of rooting hormone on the stem. First its lightly scraped, dipped in  50:50 diluted peroxide to sterilize it, clean potting mix, and misted with Spectracide's  IMMUNOX fungicide. The only time it will see nasty chemicals. In 2 years all traces will dissipate. 🤔 

 air layered lower branch too. Scraped half the bark off one side good, coated it with rooting hormone, and covered with soil. Now the wait.  Remove the leaves to reduce the stress, until it roots. It will bud out when rooted. 

pro tip. .. 4 bamboo skewers keep bag away from leaves... reduces fungi.

Kratom got sickly yellowed lea

Kratom got sickly yellowed leaves ?

Khlorotic Kratom Kured... easy peasy...

Gotta get the minerals they need inside of them. They can suffer from iron poor 'blood" too...

This means both having the minerals in the soil and having the right pH for them to be easily absorbed.


   PRO TIP... try a bag~o~black-kow, if all else fails and you don't know what to do.


.  Plant starter too... for the baby clones... pH of the drained waterings were adjusted to a slightly acidic 5.5~6.0 pH, from a more alkaline 7.5~8.5 pH. Some others have had to have acidic fish fert (for potted kratom) or Black Kow (for big in ground trees) added to decrease the pH.  Must be that alkaline limestoney soil here..... Now the newer leaves reflect the ability of the plant to absorb nutrients such as iron, manganese,  magnesium, etc.. thats better!. Potted kratom especially has pH problems here. Epsom salt and iron sulfate help acidify this alkaline potch and release nutrients to be absorbed.  idk yet if older chlorotic leaves will green-up ever. The new ones are happy now..

Treated with slightly acidic Black Kow...

New leaves are GREEN

@guywithtrees delivered a wond

@guywithtrees delivered a wonderful tree to me today! I’ve done some research and settling on these few items, grow light, green house, and a humidifier, before I pull the trigger on buying these does anyone have any tips? Especially regarding the 600 W red/blue grow light, is that a good one to use for Kratom?

Scientists Gave Rats Dosages O

Scientists Gave Rats Dosages Of Kratom 100X Higher Than What Humans Take, And It Still Did Not Cause Death, Proving That Kratom Is Extremely Safe

Scientists sought to determine the fatal dosage for Kratom, i.e. the dosage which would cause death, and in order to do this they gave rats extreme doses of Kratom. The study is titled ‘Acute Toxicity Study of Standardized Mitragyna speciosa Korth Aqueous Extract in Sprague Dawley Rats‘.

Ultimately, this study found that no dose of Kratom, even doses 100X higher than what a human could possibly take, caused death, and this a testament to Kratom’s safety.

Diving into the details, scientists gave the rats 175 mg/kg, 500 mg/kg, and 2,000 mg/kg of Kratom extract. Notably, this Kratom extract was roughly 5X stronger than regular Kratom leaf, so the dosage of 2,000 mg/kg given to the rats is equivalent to 10,000 mg/kg of regular Kratom powder.

To put this in perspective, a heavy dose of Kratom for a human is 10 grams, and most people don’t even take this much at once, and usually take 5-8 grams for a strong dose. Humans have body weights generally ranging from 50 kg to 150 kg, and splitting the difference and assuming an average human weight of 100 kg, and a dosage of 10 grams, then a strong dose of Kratom for a human is 100 mg/kg.

Comparing this to the 10,000 mg/kg that was given to the rats, this means the rats were given a dosage roughly 100X higher than what a human can handle.

Notably, the scientists who conducted this study originally believed that a dose of 175 mg/kg of the extract would be deadly, but found that it was not, which is why they ramped the dose up to 2,000 mg/kg of extract.

Ultimately, even at these insane doses 100X higher than what a human could handle, no rats died. Therefore the scientists conclude they cannot calculate an LD50 for Kratom, with LD50 being the dosage that would cause death.

Further, even at these astonishing doses, the only result was that the rats were fatigued and sleepy. Food and water intake for the rats stayed the same, and practically all biochemical and blood related parameters remained unchanged.

Zooming out, this means Kratom has an extremely high therapeutic index, which is the ratio of the deadly dose versus the therapeutic dose. From this study a deadly dose could not even be ascertained, since no rats died even at insane doses 100X higher than what a human could handle, so the therapeutic index for Kratom is over 100, and possibly much higher. Indeed, in reality the therapeutic index for Kratom is infinite, since a human could never take enough Kratom to die; a person who tried that would vomit at a dose around 20-30 grams, and even if they got past the vomiting somehow, there’s not enough room in the stomach to take a deadly dose of Kratom.

Thus, this scientific study has proven that Kratom is incredibly safe, and that even doses 100X higher than what a human could handle are not deadly. This corroborates the fact that there have been zero scientifically proven Kratom deaths in history.

Resin extracts of Kratom with

Resin extracts of Kratom with 77.6% levels of active alkaloids may one day be available, just as currently cannabis is available as resin/rosin now...

 yes, that's mostly thc you're looking at here. Cold sifted/solventlessly concentrated. 

   Medically prescribed too, but I dont think my sovereign body gives a $#IT 'bout that really.

  77.6 % to be exact. 

  Does Kratom really need this same level of professional extraction processing? Maybe, maybe not. I like my Mitragynines to be full spectrum, balanced, organic, and not overly processed,  like food today often is.

  I prefer organic home~grown leaf, made into tea or crushed, ground, sifted, and capped in 000 caps.  1 gram each.

   I know is in them them. No rat droppings or hairs in mine please.  No mercury, lead or salmonella either. Please.

 I dream of a day when domestic kratom is as good and competitive,  and even better, than imported product. 


 And I fear the day of an Indonesian grow and export ban. I would not like to be forced back onto oxys, etc.  I wish this grew at higher latitudes but am grateful it does well in Florida/Georgia climates. 

   In 2 years, many people may suffer needlessly. Kratom may not be available to them to purchase. The FDA may yet get it's dirty work done for big pharma by extorting Indonesia to ban it there and stop from exporting it.  " You better stop growing that plant or else you'll get no USA aid. No big $$$ USA AID."  Medicine can be weaponized just like the USA dollar, etc.

Way to go, Scott 'gutless' Gottlieb.  You win this round.....  to be continued guy
