What Are The Testing Limits For Kratom?

At Taunton Bay, we test our kratom products to keep consumers informed, safe, & confident in what they buy. There are currently no specific contaminant limits set for kratom, as it is not approved by any regulatory organization recognized in the U.S. - however - we follow similar guidelines imposed upon foods & dietary supplements to determine if our products are able to be sold.


What happens to products that exceed those limits?

If they are above those limits, they are recorded & either sent back to our suppliers or disposed of - but not wasted! We use our discarded kratom as compost in our flower gardens!
