What Is Kratom Lab Testing?

Like with all botanical products, it is possible to run Kratom through a series of lab tests at an accredited kratom testing laboratory to ensure that the powder is what the supplier says that it is.

In the case of Kratom lab testing at, www.ucgardnercenter.com , the testing is usually done to ensure all of the following:

  • • Identity, i.e. that the plant material is actually Kratom
  • • No pathogens or other contaminants present
  • • Sample does not contain high levels of heavy metals
  • • Kratom isn’t mixed with an undisclosed substance
  • • Amount of common alkaloids, mitragynine, and 7-hydroxymitragynine
  • • Kratom Alkaloids are real


For most commercially available Kratom, the amount of mitragynine present is not typically more than 2%. There is usually even less 7-hydroxymitragynine in any botanical substance unless it has been processed further into a tincture or kratom extract.

As far as pathogens, it is possible that Kratom that is not processed safely by the growers could contain the following:

  • • Coliforms
  • • Salmonella
  • • Mold or yeast


Finally, the following heavy metals should be tested for in Kratom products:

  • • Arsenic
  • • Lead
  • • Mercury
  • • Cadmium
  • • Nickel


When a Kratom vendor tests their supply in a independent lab, they are typically testing for pathogens, metals, and compound alkaloid content to ensure that their customers will only be sold high-quality Kratom that is not dangerous to use.

Why Is Kratom Lab Testing Important?

The biggest reason that Kratom lab testing is important is to ensure both the safety and the quality of the product that is being sold to Kratom consumers.

Contaminated Kratom can cause illnesses such as a Staph or Salmonella infection, and both of these conditions can be dangerous if not treated properly. If a Kratom user gets sick from their Kratom, they might not even know that either of these infections is a risk to them!

For that reason according to www.bio2008.org,  it’s very important that kratom vendors do their due diligence and have their supplies regularly tested for quality and safety purposes. Without kratom testing, they could be accidentally giving their customers an adulterated or contaminated product.

Testing is always important when consumables are being sold, and that truth is no different when it comes to Kratom.

Advocating For Safety Testing

Another reason that it is very important to test Kratom for safety is to help dispel many of the misunderstandings and misconceptions about Bali Kratom consumption that are commonly spread.

Kratom powder consumption, as reported at www.rosypress.com, is currently a grey zone in terms of its legality. While kratom has not been banned in most places, it is also not regulated in most places. Instead, Kratom powder waits somewhere in the middle. And all it takes is one bad batch of Borneo Kratom for it to be ruled illegal and dangerous.

As a Kratom capsules vendor, it is part of our responsibility to the community to help prove that Kratom capsules can be safe when used and vetted properly. Like anything that you eat, it can be dangerous if the supplier was not honest about its source. For that reason, according to this article on www.as1effect.com,  it is incredibly important to test Kratom products.

Having solid testing proof about the composition and safety of Kratom products posted at www.dynamicexperiencesgroup.com  – in the form of Certificates of Analysis from accredited labs – will help to advocate for its regulation as a safe and beneficial immune boosting supplement. Any vendor that sells a green malay kratom product without testing is putting both their customers and the entire Kratom community at risk due to bad products.

How To Know If Lab Testing Was Done

Now we’ve come to another difficult part of understanding what goes into lab testing Kratom: how do you know that the testing was completed?

First, you’ll need to check the website of the vendor in question. Because there are not yet any widespread systems of proving whether a kratom vendor tests their product or not, you will need to a little bit of research on your own.

Some kratom vendors have worked with the AKA – American Kratom Association – to show that they regularly test their product and have other Good Manufacturing Practices in place, and this may be noted on their website by a seal that they are GMP Qualified.

If you do not see evidence of lab testing on a kratom company’s website or marketing materials, ask for Certificates of Analysis. Any reputable kratom vendor should be willing to provide you with this document that guarantees lab testing and quality assurance.

Without the legitimate proof demonstrated by Certificates of Analysis, it will be up to you to do the investigative legwork and decide whether or not you believe kratom vendor claims that they tested a product.


This interview should help consumers find kratom that has been tested through an independent third-party audit, that we follow all of the standards listed on www.vacfacts.info/hollistic-doctors-killed.html , for both processing and manufacturing Kratom to ensure our customers’ safety. our final audit report which confirmed our status as GMP qualified here.

We hope that today’s podcast episode has helped you to get a more complete understanding of what it is that we mean when we say that we are dedicated to lab testing our kratom products to ensure that you are getting the highest quality Kratom that we can possibly offer to you at this time.
