I was always that odd one who always declined coffee when offered. Though when I was trying to impress my boss at a new job, I would always accept it and put on my best poker face when drinking it— Now that I think about it, those asshats didn’t deserve such dedication from me. Never again will I pretend to like something to impress anyone–but I’ll save that for another post. Anyway, the point is, I hate coffee. Always have, always will. Why? No clue. Just not tasty on my tongue/tastebuds. What can I say. Therefore, naturally, I had to find an alternative to coffee so that I could survive that hour commute into Portland or that alternative that would help me survive the 2PM energy crash. Yes, that’s a thing.
Why do we get excited about simple things like these (give or take)? Well, I dug into the psyche to figure that one out. Aka, I sought out professionals and their answers to this curious thing.
My kratom tea is a need in my life. Not a want. Not an option. Not an occasional recreational enjoyment. It is the one thing that helps relieve some of the chronic issues I have to live with.
And many are in my exact situation. Many of us feel the need to conceal this truth so we are not judge or misunderstood. Moms like me, business women, that soccer mom down the street–this is our morning cup of “coffee”. We hide our consumption as if our tea was laced with vodka.
“The image of wealthy moms slurping kratom tea in lieu of a cappuccino, or trendy Bay Area residents popping kratom pills socially just for its mild, mellow body high, cuts strangely against the dire tone of most government reports on kratom.” – Wired.
“A third of our clientele are looking for a caffeine-free alternative to get them through their day,” Day says. “I’m talking soccer moms.” Day is the owner of Clean Kratom Wellness Center Denver’s 1st and largest Kratom Dispensary.
Kratom is a coffee tree plant from Southeast Asia. Kratom is derived from a tropical evergreen coffee tree. Kratom produces leaves in which Indonesian farmers chew and suck on, for energy and pain relief, to help with working long hours in the sun.
There is no one on the face of this dying earth that knows how it feels to have a “bad day”, unless they too have tried to live a day while battling chronic pain. It’s hard, even as a working mom to not find myself slightly annoyed when hearing other mom’s say they have it so hard. No. I agree that it’s hard for you, but remember it could always be harder. It still feels good to vent, which is what we all do and what we ALL should welcome a listening ear to because we are human and we all have our days that feel shitty.
Kratom is condemned and blamed for just about everything. If someone commits suicide, Kratom is to blame. Literally, there is a report in here of this. If a man overheats in his car, Kratom is to blame. If someone shoots themselves in the head, Kratom is to blame. If someone THROWS THEMSELVES OUT A WINDOW, Kratom is to blame. That’s in here also!
I have put together a Kratom Guide, listing everything you will need to know before you get started with kratom. Taken from articles written by me and others, I gather all of the most important information here in one spot to help you jump start your kratom journey!
I challenge you to fact check every Kratom-related death, to see if you can come up with actual proof that SHOWS the person died from Kratom, ALONE. I think there is like one death ever reported from Kratom alone and <<>> there are no lab values showing actual toxicity. Even if there was ONE death or even a FEW deaths from Kratom alone, why would that even MATTER,
If you’ve been following my blog, along with the American Kratom Association then you must of heard about the Kratom Consumer Protection Act (KCPA) The KCPA is the bill which will establish dietary supplement regulations for Kratom, Mitragyna Speciosa. The American Kratom Association, is working to enact this bill on the federal level, across America this 2021 legislative session.
