Why You Should STOP Saying this Word

This was such an important topic for me to cover that I even went out of my way to make a video about it. I even through in some short clips for social media channels. This is something that needs to be said and understood if you value kratom and desire it to be or remain legal.

Stop saying user.

“I am a kratom user.”

“If you are a user of kratom…”

“When you use kratom….”

Do you say that you “use Sam E” supplements? Do you say “I’m a user of chamomile tea”? You never say “I use Prozac for my mood”.

No!

You TAKE kratom. You CONSUME kratom. You DRINK kratom. The term “user” has a very negative connotation.
