One of the biggest threats to kratom’s ongoing legality is the thoughtless advertising of shady brands. Despite an increase in scrutiny by both the mainstream media and government agencies, kratom vendors have continued to roll out marketing materials that feature some rather outrageous claims.
In the past, we’ve seen crooked companies refer to their product as a “miracle herb,” a “mood booster” and “nature’s pain reliever.” It is important that consumers understand that these kinds of claims are not easy to corroborate and have, in fact, been denied by the FDA.
According to said agency, there is inconclusive scientific data to support the notion that kratom has medicinal benefits. This hasn’t stopped fly-by-night suppliers and unwitting retailers from stocking products that carry some brazen declarations.
Some suggest that their powder is an “organic analgesic” while others act like it is a treatment for clinical depression. None of this could be further from the truth. On the contrary, all such claims can do is hurt those who love this Ayurvedic herb.
When companies persist in misleading their customers and pissing off the powers that be, it’s only a matter of time before laws are passed to ban kratom. As a matter of fact, we’ve seen a number of attempts at outlawing kratom here in the U.S.
Luckily, fate was on our sides and cooler heads prevailed, but it’s only a matter of time before such a bill passes and folks have to suffer because of restrictions. Of course, this can all be easily avoided if companies are honest and open about the advantages of kratom as well as the side effects.
One company that has been doing it up right is Lake Tahoe Kratom. This independent kratom vendor doesn’t bother with bold claims or bogus promises, opting instead to state the obvious and stick to what he knows.
Instead of guaranteeing that users will get instant relief, as many lesser vendors have, Lake Tahoe Kratom simply says, “Kratom is an amazing tree leaf that has helped many people from all over the globe live a happy, productive lifestyle.”
While this may be refuted by select medical experts, there is plenty of evidence to support such a remark, particularly the countless public comments of kratom users who have attested to how much it helps them.

This U.S.-based company is a West coast kratom supplier serving an international audience. LTK ships their various strains of Mitragyna speciosa tea to customers wherever kratom is legal. Founded in 2018 by Nathan Zarate, a resident of South Lake Tahoe, CA.
LTK specializes in ultra enhanced kratom strains, kratom extracts and kratom accessories. All of their M. speciosa plant matter is submitted to a third party laboratory where it is tested for heavy metals and other potential adulterants.
Depending on where you live in the greater Lake Tahoe area, kratom should be legal to buy, sell and consume. In June of 2019, the state of Nevada passed the Kratom Consumer Protection Act which limits the distribution, sale and possession of Mitragyna speciosa and its alkaloids—mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine—to individuals 18 years of age or older.
Kratom sales to minors is strictly prohibited and may result in the offending party facing time in prison or a steep fine. The Kratom Consumer Protection Act is a bold step in the right direction for kratom legality as it attempts to solve the problem of an unregulated substance.
If you currently reside in California then you’re probably aware of the rather particular laws in your local municipalities. Although kratom use is legal in the Golden State, the city of San Diego has banned this substance, classifying it as a synthetic and psychoactive drug.
Their popular kratom strains include all of the following:
Their UEI strains count gold and yellow vein kratom powder among them. There are no fewer than five to choose from, including Gold and Yellow Indo.
They also carry other supplies, such as a kratom shaker, a digital scale, a liquid kratom shot and a 20x kratom extract.
After sampling eight of their top-selling items, I’d have to say that Green Lake Monster is my absolute fave! At turns sharp and mellow, Green Monster comes on like a good Super Green Malay and sticks around for the long haul.

Just a clean, delightful experience all around.
