Golden Monk Kratom began as a small startup in Canada back in in the beginning of 2016. We started from scratch and succeeded simply by spreading word of what we’re selling and placing our customers above profits. We have one, clear goal in mind: provide the best quality Mitragyna Speciosa for buyers who share the same respect and sentiment for this wonderful botanical.
Even though we are somewhat new to the Canadian Kratom market, we have tremendous experience from our affiliated partners in the United States. Our sister company in the States have been at the top of the industry, providing superior kratom since 2012. Since our recent expansion, our customer base grew exponentially. This just shows how competitive and reasonable we are in offering our customers across Canada this marvelous plant.
Here at GMK, we offer premium kratom at competitive prices. Our powder is extremely high-quality and is backed by a full 30-day satisfaction guarantee. We are confident that you will find the alkaloid percentage of our strains to be some of the highest in the market today.
How we select and buy our kratom is key to our low prices and superb quality. Our products are searched out naturally, not grown on farms contrary to popular belief. Mitragyna Speciosa is a tough crop to grow in a controlled setting. The kratom plants need plenty of sunlight in the right proportions, along with ample shade and a proper nutrient/water supply. For these reasons, top quality M. Speciosa plants need to be sourced in the right areas.
Our farmers go direct and disperse their plants the natural environments where kratom flourishes. Only the mature plants are selected, and the young are left to grow into something more. We have direct contact with our farmers and routinely exchange information. They send out pictures of the harvesting, drying and grinding processes to validate that the product is prepared using best practices
Our kratom farmers are in this business for the long haul and they truly have a passion for the industry. Mitragyna Speciosa harvesting is a craft that demands experienced farmers with methods that have been perfected through generations. Since the strains are grown in a field, an experienced farmer needs to identify and prospect new sustainable areas to grow and harvest where soil nutrients and proper growing conditions are met. An experienced farmer will also only go after the mature crops and harvest them at the right time.
Kratom sustainability is a huge problem. Farmers out to make a quick buck are not good for the sustainability of this plant species. Harvesting too many wild plants in a given location can quickly choke the natural supply in that area further lowering the population of mature plants. Many people are unaware of this serious problem unethical farmers are causing. Conscious consumers should be aware.
Our kratom farming partners use a method of sustainability in their harvesting. When they go into the field to harvest, they avoid harvesting an entire area. Many of the young immature plants are left to grow. These farmers do this for their own good by ensuring their clients will return batch after batch. They want to be able to harvest as well as selectively breed these plants in future years. Farmers often travel by boats to access different areas of farmland. The methods our partners use is the best for the sustainability of alkaloid-rich kratom.
The various strains of Mitragyna are of extreme interest to the research community. There are many alkaloids within the plant that may have future medical purposes. Some of the most prominent alkaloids of interest include:
By harvesting mature plants during the right time of year and drying in the best recommended practices, we can offer an optimal product. Our product has not been stomped on by middlemen trading companies and we deal direct with experienced farmers. This leads to alkaloid-rich kratom that our customers love. We are confident that you will be impressed with the alkaloid profile across all of our strains. Each strain offers a differing percentage of exciting alkaloids for your research purposes.
Aside from harvesting mature leaves, proper drying is the single second most important factor for a quality product. To ensure that the delicate alkaloids are preserved, a careful process needs to be executed during the drying phase. Our farmers know how important the drying process is and use the best practices during this process.
First of all, the drying needs to be done indoors. The drying process should not be executed in direct sunlight, but rather in a dark and cool climate controlled environment. Drying is done on special racks that allow air to travel above and below the leaves. It takes several days of drying before the leaves are ready for grinding.
