LAB TESTING

Kratom is increasing in popularity and there are many companies out there who are trying to monetize on this trend. It is not uncommon for companies to seek out the lowest-cost product possible, ship it over to the U.S. and pass it off as a high-grade, quality product for a quick profit. As more processing is done to a product, the cost goes up. The cheapest bulk kratom available is rarely high quality, let alone sterilized or lab-tested.

The following list outlines the tests our kratom powders undergo each time they are lab-tested. We strive to educate all of our customers before they buy kratom powder from any vendor.

IDENTIFICATION OF BOTANICAL COMPOUNDS

Alkaloid Content:

  • Mitragynine
  • 7-hydroxymitragynine

High-Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC)
A test to verify the product matches its label and identifies the active ingredients through comparison with a reference standard.

Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GCMS)
This test confirms the same information as an HPLC test.

Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC)
Another test to verify the botanical makeup of the product carried out by comparing it to a reference standard.

ORGANOLEPTIC TESTING (USE OF THE SENSES FOR

IDENTIFICATION)

Visual Appearance

Product sample undergoes evaluation of appearance, based on

comparison with an accepted standard.

Scent

Product sample aroma is compared to an accepted standard.

Color

Color of product sample is compared to the accepted standard.

MICROBIOLOGY TESTING

Total Aerobic Plate Count / Yeast and Mold Count

These tests identify and count existing microorganisms within the sample. The lower the count the cleaner the product. 

Testing for Coliform / E. Coli / Salmonella

Tests to detect and count the number of bacteria within the sample.

CHEMICAL ANALYSIS

Pesticides

Tests are conducted to ensure our quality kratom products are free from

pesticides, so as to meet the requirements for 100% organic

certification.

Heavy Metals

A test to identify any metallic impurities. The number of certain trace metals found in the kratom powder cannot exceed amounts specified by governing bodies.
