We are a small family business located in the Greater Cincinnati – Northern Kentucky (Covington) area. We have been involved in the Kratom business in one form or another since at least 2009. Among our other botanical ventures, BotanicalWellness.com (founded in 2011) is the newest with a focus upon more than just selling products. We hope to spread the word about Kratom and show people that Kratom has the potential to be a real life saver. We are disgusted to see websites and storefronts pushing Kratom-related products as some sort of “legal high.” These vendors are generally doing so simply in the interests of earning a buck. They don’t fully understand Kratom and the potential that it has for helping people. Their marketing campaigns and irresponsible behaviors are a sure fire way to draw negative attention to a plant with so much potential benefit.
