Kratom FAQs

What Is Kratom?

Kratom itself is a tropical tree that grows in certain Asian countries such as Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, and Borneo. The leaves of this tree can be harvested and dried, and these dried leaves are what people are referring to when they talk about “kratom.”

In regions where the tree grows native, these leaves have been used for hundreds of years as a traditional botanical. Teas that are made from the leaves were also used in many different types of ceremonies.

Today, traditional usage of these leaves is less common, and kratom use is not as common as it once was in those areas. In the last ten to twenty years, however, kratom use around the world has increased exponentially.

How Does A Kratom Tree Grow?

As mentioned, Kratom is a tropical tree that is native to countries like:

Thailand, Myanmar, Borneo, Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea

Why is MIT45 more expensive than other companies?

MIT45 is a premium brand and therefore priced as such due the high-quality standards we maintain. MIT45 has established farm to final product controls by partnering directly with responsible farmers throughout SouthEast Asia. We’ve even helped build farm infrastructure with many of those framers so that they are able to provide us with the finest raw Kratom leaves.

Those leaves are then either packaged in our Raw Leaf powder and Raw Leaf capsules or utilized to produce one our best-in-class extracts. Those extracts are manufactured in a pharmaceutical grade laboratory where great care is taken to ensure that the potency and consistency is at the high standard that our customers, like you, are accustomed to. We also take great pride in our Triple Purification Process TM. As a normal part of the extraction process conducted by all Kratom manufacturers, solvents are introduced at various stages of extraction. At MIT45, the purity of our product is of utmost importance, so we committed to the extra steps of removing all solvents or contaminants that may have been found in the extract. After the Triple Purification Process our extracts are tested by a 3rd party laboratory to ensure this process was successful and only products that have passed this stringent testing are made available for purchase.

Most Kratom manufacturers aren’t committed to ensuring that their products are purified once, much less three times. At MIT45, we feel as though we owe it to our customers and the industry as a whole to ensure we provide only the best and purest kratom products. Do not be fooled by other companies that may provide cheaper products. In the Kratom industry, as in life, you certainly get what you pay for.

Why do the products contain no instructions?

We sell our products with no directions for use or intended use. The FDA has warned against the dangers of consuming kratom and there are no safe guidelines for use as a dietary supplement. Our customers must do their own research and decide on which way to use kratom. We do not make any recommendations for use and the product is handled at the customer’s own risk.

Do you offer products in bulk?

MIT45 does not currently offer bulk raw products. However, if you are interested in placing a large order you can contact our Sales team at 866-MIT-4555 to find out more about our wholesale pricing.
