At Steding & Sons Mercantile, we firmly believe that pure kratom is a safe, natural supplement. Because of this all our product is laboratory tested, for alkaloids, metals and microbiology. We NEVER add anything to our 100% pure kratom leaves. We believe this plant is wonderful just as it is and we hope you'll agree.
UPDATE FEBRUARY 9, 2021 - Moving forward, 1836 Kratom will no longer be selling red strains which have been dried in the sun. Instead, we will only sell leaves that have been dried inside in sterile conditions. Expect all red strains, lot 151914 and after, to appear lighter than Lot 151913 and previous. We are making this change in an effort to consistently offer our customers the cleanest, safest products possible.
In July 2018, we updated our system to strive toward compliance with guidelines set by the "American Kratom Association." Upon receipt from Indonesia, all kratom is quarantined until it passes the lab exam for biological contamination. If the product does not pass it is not sold. As of 7/25/18, all packaging is stamped with a six digit lot number. This number lines up with a lab report. In addition to testing every lot for bio contamination, kratom is regularly subjected to testing for heavy metals as well as to ensure satisfactory alkaloid content.
As of June 2019, we are among the American Kratom Association's GMP Qualified Vendors. We are grateful for this recognition, yet, we will continue to advance our processes, taking every step possible to bring our customers safer products. We are 100% committed to our plant and our customers.
Beginning in September 2018, every single batch of Quantum Kratom is treated with our proprietary heat sterilization process. This process not only helps to ensure a clean product, but due to its precision, it often increases the potency of the alkaloids. We are grateful for our good friends at Green Lea Health for sharing their knowledge.
One major concern, in the kratom community, is heavy metal content, especially lead, in the plant. This content tends to come from the soil, in which the plants are grown. There is a lot of question about safe levels, and, while exposure is inevitable, whether or not you consume kratom, there is no level that can be deemed acceptable. Regarding lead:
The FDA recoomends that an adult consume no more than 12.5 micrograms of lead, per day. Sante Laboratory tests are based on a 3g serving of kratom and the amount of lead shown, in a Sante Lab result, is the number of micrograms per serving. The most recent test from Sante Labs shows
AHPA has a recommended amount of 6 mcg of lead per day (at a common level of, .5 micrograms per gram, as is often found in all natural kratom leaf, AHPA would recommend that someone consume less than 12 grams of powder per day. 11grams per day at .56 micrograms per gram)
We gratefully share our lab results with our customers so that they may make educated decisions.
We appreciate your business.
