American Kratom Association


 The American Kratom Association was formed in 2014 and officially launched in 2015, to protect the right of all Americans to use the natural botanical Kratom for improved health and well-being. Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) is a natural analgesic which has been used for hundreds of years to safely alleviate pain, combat fatigue and help with the effects of anxiety and depression. Unfortunately, the spread of misinformation, both scientific and anecdotal, about Kratom has created a challenging regulatory environment. The American Kratom Association was formed to organize and represent a community of responsible consumers, provide the general public with clarification surrounding matters of health and wellness where Kratom could play an important role, educate lawmakers and regulators and support scientific research efforts.

The DEA Takes an Exception to Kratom

Biologically, kratom acts enough like an opioid that DEA considers it a threat to public safety. The agency planned to use a regulatory mechanism called emergency scheduling to place it in the same restrictive category as heroin, LSD, and cannabis. This category, Schedule I, is reserved for what the DEA considers the most dangerous drugs—those with no redeeming medical value, and a high potential for abuse. 

 "I think kratom is the cure for the opioid epidemic," says Chris Bell, the acclaimed documentary filmmaker behind 2008's Bigger, Stronger, Faster and 2015's Prescription Thugs 

 The Drug Enforcement Administration has said it will ban the kratom plant for two years because it can produce effects similar to opiates. Although it's been used for centuries in Southeast Asia, its use is relatively new in the United States, spurred in large part by users sharing reports of their experiences with the drug on online forums.One of the most well-known of those forums is the website, an "online encyclopedia of psychoactive substances," whose founders were profiled in the New Yorker last year. At Erowid, users of everything from caffeine to heroin can submit first-person reports of their experiences with drugs. These "trip reports" are reviewed by moderators, categorized thematically ("bad trips," "glowing experiences," etc.) and published on the website.

Red Vein Maeng Da Kratom Powder

Buy Boise Kratom's red vein maeng da kratom powder is one of our prized possessions. Originating from Indonesia, Maeng Da is widely recognized, and rightly so, as the strongest kratom on the market. The maeng da plant is typically characterized by its darker colored leaves, higher alkaloid content (mitragynine, 7-hydroxymitragynine, mitraphylline compaounds) and its resilience to environmental conditions, when compared with other kratom plants, during the growth process. Our growers in Indonesia have many years of experience growing the maeng da plant and take great care when picking, storing and grinding the leaves to ensure quality and freshness.  

Green Maeng Da

Buy Boise Kratom's green vein maeng da kratom powder is a hot seller to say the least. Famous for its rich alkaloid concentration, this strain is a staple of the kratom industry and lives up to the hype. Our growers have consistently produced high quality maeng da kratom powders for many years and take great pride in their work. Once our growers have picked the kratom leaves, they are grounded into a fine powder and quickly vacuum sealed to ensure freshness. 

Green Hulu Kapuas

 Hulu kapuas has quickly become an underground sensation! Our green hulu kapuas comes from a forest on the island of Borneo and is known for being very energizing, relaxing and uplifting. It has all of the traditional green vein characteristics but some would say it has a slightly more energizing aroma. If you haven’t tried a hulu kapuas strain, we highly recommend jumping on this bandwagon. Our green hulu is grade A+ quality kratom.  

Red Borneo

Buy Boise Kratom's red vein Borneo kratom powder is cultivated by our experienced growers from the island of Borneo. Borneo is a beautiful island in southeast Asia that is shared by 3 countries: Malaysia, Brunei, and Indonesia. This plant is cultivated until its leaves are very mature then they are picked, grounded into a fine powder and then quickly vacuum sealed to ensure freshness. Red vein borneo, commonly referred to as RVB, has been a long time favorite in the industry and we must admit that is one of our favorite strains as well.
