Kraken Kratom Becomes First Company Named AKA GMP Qualified Kratom Vendor

Portland, OR – March 11, 2019 – Kraken Kratom, a national online kratom retailer based in Oregon, has been recognized by the American Kratom Association as the first company to achieve AKA GMP Qualified Vendor status. An online retailer of kratom and kava products, Kraken prioritizes quality, safety, compliance, and consumer satisfaction and has worked diligently to demonstrate adherence to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) set forth by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). As the first company to receive this new qualification from the AKA, Kraken has solidified its reputation as a trusted kratom vendor and a leader in their industry.

The AKA GMP Standards Program was created to establish a higher level of manufacturing processes for Kratom Vendors. AKA GMP participants have committed to implementing and following the manufacturing and processing standards outlined in the AKA GMP Standards Program, found on the American Kratom Association website. To become AKA GMP Qualified Vendors, participants must complete an annual independent 3rd party audit to ensure their compliance with the program standards. Upon verification of the audit, they are considered as AKA GMP Qualified.

Kraken Kratom has always held customer safety and satisfaction as its number one goal, employing stringent receiving, testing, and quarantine procedures to ensure the safety and purity of products. In addition to fulfilling the requirements of the AKA GMP Standards program, Kraken has undertaken the larger project of becoming compliant with comprehensive GMP guidelines. Over the past year, the company has upgraded its facility and fine tuned its standard operating procedures to conform to all aspects of Good Manufacturing Practices.

“We are extremely proud to have our work acknowledged by the American Kratom Association,” says Managing Director Jeff Stratton. “At Kraken, we’ve long recognized the importance of GMP compliance and have gone the extra mile to keep our products pure and our customers safe. We applaud the AKA’s efforts to bring kratom manufacturing processes in line with other legitimate industries, and we encourage our peers to adopt the same level of compliance for the safety of consumers and the survival of our industry.”

Not All CBD is Created Equal!

NBC 6 Miami Tests 35 CBD Products for Accuracy!

Eye-Opening Investigation: Right now, you can find CBD products in beauty salons, gas stations and online. But you'll soon be seeing CBD products show up in a variety of other places, including larger scale retail stores. Last year, federal lawmakers passed the 2018 farm bill which separated hemp from the legal definition of marijuana, making it legal to manufacture and buy anywhere in the United States. In 2018, CBD was a $619 million industry nationwide. By the end of 2019, it's expected to hit $5.9 billion, according to researchers with Brightfield Group, a CBD marketing research firm.

The NBC 6 Investigators purchased 35 CBD products from seven different companies. We bought five products of each brand. They covered the samples with white labels to prevent identification of the samples being tested at the lab. We then took the samples to Evio Labs, an accredited testing facility in Davie. The company tests for more than 400 companies worldwide.

Of the 35 samples we tested, 20 of them had less than half of the amount of CBD advertised on the label. Some samples had no CBD at all! Not all of the results showed big differences. NBC6 tested gummies from Green Roads, a South Florida-based company. Results show the product inside matched what was listed on the packages. See the Entire Story and Results!

Is Kava An All-Natural Aphrodisiac?

Kava won’t immediately put you in the mood for sex but like a certain blue pill, kava has effects similar to an aphrodisiac. Kava puts you in a calm and mellow state of mind so it’s easy to understand the reasoning behind kava for sex. The brew of kava root releases kavalactones into the brain. These kavalactones help fight against the main part of your brain that handles worry and anxiety. This authentic calming feeling can give you a boost in the bedroom as well.

Plenty of stories about the effects of kava reign from the South Pacific. This specific one details kava as an aphrodisiac, and goes as followed: two sisters were out on a journey to collect wild yams. Once found, they went to a river to wash the wild yams off. What they didn’t realize was a kava root was hidden close to one sister.

The kava root gave pleasurable feelings to that sister. She said, “oh, my sister. Something is giving me sweet pleasure. Tell me, do you see what it is?”

The other sister noticed the plant and realized it was the source of the pleasure. The two took the plant home where they cultivated it, eventually showing the men of their village the alluring properties of the root, and declared it the “true kava” over it’s competitors in the wild.

Now brought over to the West, the relaxing properties of Kava work in your favor. It strips away the stressful inhibitions of your day. On top of that, when you drink kava, your body language no longer reads as tense and hostile, making it an excellent male and female aphrodisiac.

Kratom as a Pre-Workout Supplement

Get Your Workout On!

More and more Kratom users (and those who've never tried it before) are discovering that certain Veins of Kratom make great pre-work solutions versus using the traditional pre-workout supplements that contain caffiene. Instead of getting the "jittery" and agitated feelings that many of those can produce. In particular, many users are using Green Malay Kratom to give them a feeling of extended energy and the ability to remain focused and confident.

What's your Go-To combination of Veins and/or brands for making your workouts more productive? Contact us and let us know!
