The American Kratom Association (AKA) is first and foremost a consumer advocacy organization. The FDA has deployed an unrelenting anti-kratom disinformation campaign since 2012, and every day we see more of the unfair attacks by the FDA in local cities, counties, and townships in addition to their broad attacks on kratom at the state and federal levels. The FDA is spending millions of our tax dollars to wage war on the kratom community. We have to fight back in every way that we can. Kratom consumers have always risen to the challenge, but the demands are now so great, particularly with the coronavirus hitting hard-working families in the pocketbook, that we have asked the kratom vendors to help. We recognize the following Kratom Champions who have answered the call to join kratom consumers in this fight. The AKA invited vendors who have committed to the AKA Good Manufacturing Practices program to participate so that we are consistent in our messaging.

    Keep Kratom Safe and Legal

    Keep Kratom Safe and Legal

    Millions of Americans depend on natural kratom for their health and wellness. In fact, kratom has been used for centuries as a natural remedy for pain management and other benefits. However, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is using incomplete and even false science in order to prohibit the manufacturing and sale of natural kratom.

    The American Kratom Association is your advocate in the effort to keep kratom safe and available, not only by challenging the FDA to be honest and transparent in its analysis and the information it shares about what centuries have proven to be a safe botanical, but working with industry farmers, manufacturers, and distributors to keep natural kratom pure.
