ETHA Grows Kratom Plants in the USA
Did you know that ETHA grows its own kratom plants right here in the USA? This endeavor allows us to learn a tremendous amount about kratom while also producing better products.
Mitragyna Speciosa, more commonly known as kratom, is a tropical evergreen tree in the coffee family (Rubiaceae) native to Southeast Asia. As a large evergreen tree, mitragyna speciosa can grow upwards of 80 feet tall while producing lustrous leaves and budding flowers. The veins of the leaves are distinct and vary in color from a light yellow to deep green and brownish red.
People across Southeast Asia have been using kratom leaves for centuries to restore natural energy levels and alleviate occasional discomfort. People would chew on kratom leaves and spit out the leaves after a few moments allowing the juices to flow into their system. Another popular way to enjoy kratom would be to brew some leaves in hot water to make a kratom herbal tea. This is particularly popular in the morning before strenuous labor and in the evening during a meal with friends and family.
Today, kratom products have made their way around the world where millions of people enjoy and rely on it. There are over 40 known alkaloids that makes up this amazing plant. Alkaloids are a class of basic, naturally occurring organic compounds that contain at least one nitrogen atom. Some of the most well researched alkaloids in mitragyna speciosa are mitragynine, paynantheine, speciogynine, and 7-hydroxymitragynine. These alkaloids are researched for their potential to restore natural energy levels, alleviate occasional pain, improve mood, and support a health response to stress.

Issues With Importing Kratom
The problem with the current kratom supply chain is two-fold. The kratom coming out of Indonesia is not consistent in alkaloid profiles so you are left guessing and hoping you receive what you need. Secondly, the quality is questionable. Indonesia does not have an established kratom market with regulations and quality standards. Therefore, people are left to rely on the word of the kratom farmers as to the quality of the kratom they receive. In reality, however, no one actually knows what they will get until they physically get the kratom and can test it. Therefore, this guessing game as to the quality sometimes has a great result and other times the whole incoming harvest needs to be scraped due to various contamination and quality issues.
ETHA has made it part of its mission to recognize, address and remedy these issues.
Partnership with ZONTA Botanicals
ETHA has partnered with the only company that is building out an end-to-end kratom supply chain outside of Indonsia, Zonta Botanicals (Zonta). Zonta addresses these issues of inconsistency and quality, as well as supply chain and sourcing that have become a hallmark of crops such as kratom.
