The Wild Harvested logo is our own icon to identify any botanical that is wild-harvested in nature where historically they have existed for centuries. Many botanicals are found in a more natural environment to preserve the integrity of the soil, elevation, and humidity of the cultivation criteria. The “Wild Harvested” logo only pertains to a few specific strains on this website.
Specs / Standards / Quality
Grind: Ultra Fine
Botanical Name: Mitragyna Speciosa
All our Kratom products are 100% Mitragyna Speciosa leaf. It comes from the coffee family, and is of the Premium variety. “Premium” means that it is leaf powder. Not stems and veins to add additional weight. Only pure leaf. We pay more for this because we believe that it is our responsibility to provide the best product we can . . . consistently. We do not add any fillers of any kind to our Kratom.
Many of the strains of Kratom that we carry grow naturally in the wild from the forests of Indonesia, and they are wild harvested. Many strains are plantation-raised in the same region. Plantation strains are sometimes better. We carry both wild and plantation-raised depending on the strain. For most strains, we carry both. All our Kratom products are naturally air dried and ground ultra fine similar to flour.
In Sense Botanicals cares deeply about quality and purity. We work closely with our growers and providers to ensure all products adhere to the standards mentioned above. So we market our products as Premium “Organic”. When we say “Organic”, we mean our Kratom is grown without the use of pesticides, chemicals, or synthetic fertilizers. We have taken the time to get to know who we are getting our Kratom from. We strive to get the best from the best.
When we call our products “Organic”, we feel our products are as natural and organic as you can get.
Wild vs Plantation-Raised: Explanation of minor differences
Wild comes from the forests of Indonesia, be it Bali, Borneo, Sumatra or Ketapang. They are harvested directly from wilderness areas. The beauty of these trees, be it next to a river or in the middle of the forest, is that they are unique and powerful in many ways. Plantations have over time eliminated some of the poorer strains during growing, and gained more of the better strains. Our quality standards are similar for both harvesting methods. We want the best and work hard to stay there.
Quality Control: Consistency Monitored
As with any Natural Botanical product, minor changes occur between batches resulting from weather or seasonal changes in the source country of Indonesia. We have an excellent record of consistency!
