If you woke up this morning and thought to yourself: how is the fight against the Kratom ban progressing? I want to take a minute to tell you how great you’re doing.
However, even though millions of people use Kratom on a daily basis, you have to make it your responsibility to take action in this fight to ensure it gets done.
I realize I have already mentioned that we need to singularly remember to fight for Kratom every day, we can’t rely on anyone else to do our fighting for us, but it would be reassuring to know there were other people joining this fight alongside us.
One of the things we have at our disposal are scientific facts. We can wholly rely on the facts to assist us in the wage to stop the Kratom ban. Education is a great motivator, especially with people who look to the science of this plant to make their decision. In this article, I want to discuss the actionable intel you can use to stop the Kratom ban.
What We’re Up Against
It’s obvious when a doctor or scientist makes his or her own judgement against Kratom without prior study. Because we already have the facts to back up our claims on the benefits of Kratom, it’s always odd to see a doctor come out with an assumption as broad and blatantly false as this one:
There is no reason to assume that Kratom is any safer than opioids like morphine or heroin. Also, there is a real danger of contamination with Salmonella… https://t.co/jJYc1o1eZP

This is what we’re up against.
Doctors and scientists who ignore the scientific facts to push their own agenda.
Over and over again we’re seeing false information spread against Kratom. One of these many examples is Derek Lowe (he’s not against Kratom per se, but even he sees the atrocity with these lies they’re spreading) who shares exactly what I’m talking about.
Mr. Lowe, described many instances where the FDA pointed the public in the wrong direction, but I sat up and paid attention when I saw his comments. Here is what he said:
Now, that makes me wonder why the FDA is going on about their advanced modeling work on the kratom alkaloids, when there is already experimental evidence for whether they bind human opioid receptors. The agency’s press release does mention that “This model, together with previously available experimental data, confirmed that two of the top five most prevalent compounds (including mitragynine) are known to activate opioid receptors“, and this must the some of that previously available data. Needless to say, I believe that it’s much stronger evidence than a computational model, which is a view that would be shared by molecular modelers themselves. Well-controlled experimental data are the aces in the scientific deck.
Not only is the FDA ignoring the scientific facts about Kratom, but they are also building their own computer model that can spit out the answers they are looking for. These so-called answers are generic results that ignore actual experiential data analysis.
But do not despair.
We have several champions in our corner and I was fortunate enough to find one.
The Evidence Is On Our Side In The Kratom Ban
I had the pleasure of sitting down with Dr. Jane Babin, lawyer and Ph.D. in molecular biology, who shared some important aspects on this Kratom ban with myself and the rest of the community.
If you saw the live version, you probably remember that all of a sudden my live feed was cut by YouTube. They don’t want us talking about the real science of Kratom. So much for freedom of speech.
No matter, we moved the Q&A over to our Facebook group where Dr. Babin spent most of the evening answering questions and talking about these scientific facts. After the Facebook interview, it was reported by one of my colleagues that Dr. Babin had been “Shadow Banned” by Facebook.
For some reason, major social networks don’t want us talking about the truth behind Kratom either.
But this doesn’t change the fact that the scientific evidence is still on our side. The FDA is fighting dirty and doing their best to silence the truth, but it is up to me and you to create opportunities to educate people around you and your representatives regarding Kratom.
Below is the video I saved before YouTube could delete it…it has been edited right up until where I was cut off by YouTube, but the facts are still there. Dr. Babin shares some important insights on Kratom, why the FDA is doing what they’re doing, and why it’s important for you to continue the fight.
